The fact is that there are a ton of advertising agencies in charleston sc and sadly, they aren’t as transparent with the what is going on behind the scenes as much as they should be! If a carpenter came to my home and was about to open up my kitchen, they would be transparent about the process! I am paying the company to do the work with the experience they have, not because I don’t think I couldn’t do it myself, but the fact is that I don’t have the time to do so. In short, yes, we allow clients to see EVERYTHING that goes on. Communication is key in life.

Since we can fully explain the process and you can see where all the work and labor comes into play, you will see the full value of what you pay for and why SEO works the way it does.
Pricing is based on your needs. If you are in Summerville South Carolina, a smaller city, then you may need a smaller package which will put you on the front page. In contrast if you are in the heart of Charleston SC and competition is everywhere then SEO and marketing will go up on the price package. Ultimately you could pay for the same price as the small city package, but why would you waste time when you could just throw a few more dollars at something and get what you really want a lot sooner. And like we talked about before, SEO is not our only method of attracting clients. We use the initial startup package to create targeted FB ads to generate revenue initially while SEO kicks in.
Even though we are a Charleston SEO company, we have worked with a lot of clients outside of South Carolina. Example of our bigger clients would be dignity funeral homes and west coast trucking. A few smaller clients would be Diamond landscaping and A Carpet Doctor both located in Colorado. Even though we have many success stories, ultimately we want YOUR success story.
Of course, our Charleston SEO firm loves to set up personal meetings with at least an hour to go over everything from your goals to how we are going to make it happen! Success doesn’t happen without action behind it! We are ready to put your business on the digital map!
Success is an interesting concept. Our lead client manager of our SEO Charleston agency, Wrenn, puts it this way “Every day you wake up is a successful day, it’s another chance to create positive relationships with people around you, including yourself and your business; when you are happy doing what you do, and people even pay you for that happiness, you are then truly living a successful life.” The short answer is, in retrospect, just seeing you as the client achieve his/her goals originally set and going beyond those set goals.
Over the years as Google became the prominent source for searching and crawling through the internet to bring you relevant websites with information concerning your search, it has also constantly improved its algorithm and since people abuse a weak spot, Google has tightened up making it a lot harder to rank and stay #1 on Google. It is a constant update that we are performing. What works now may be not such a good strategy 6 months from now. The fact is that we are in a constant process trying to establish trust with Google. Anyone says otherwise is lying. There are plenty of marketing agencies Charleston SC who will promise you what you want to hear to get your business, make sure you aren’t being naive.
Like we already said, don’t be naive. This process can take anywhere from 3 months (Great timing) – 6 months (average timing) to see progress and results. It’s like establishing trust with a stranger you just met, it takes time, and if other people talk about this “stranger” and how they trust them, then that helps you get to trust this “stranger” faster. Plenty of Marketing firms Charleston SC will promise you what you want to hear, once again if they don’t say 3 – 6 months then they are plain lying. run away quick!
Google has been making updates daily since its existence, (just take a look at these SEO updates) since there really isn’t just ONE tactic that makes it work. It’s like the gears of a watch, take one away and you can’t tell the time! Same concept. Doing digital marketing charleston sc has taught us that SEO is a process of many inner working pieces coming together as one.
Lets look at how SEO works synonymously
Your on-site SEO as we call it, has to be thorough and well thought out. If Google thinks you are a great source of information for the search term the user is looking up then Google may want to use you! But content alone is not enough! Remember targeted content is what we are writing throughout your pages. this means we look at keywords that actually matter and will provide conversion traffic, in other words, traffic that is actually looking for what you provide.
These are what we call off-site SEO where we link your website from other websites! However these links are not created equally as we discuss later. It’s all about trust. Not only do we have to make sure you have the awesome content, we have to get other sites to say “yes we trust this source of information” Which leads us into our next topic
This is essential, did you you know there were 3 layers of security on a website?
First, there is your encryption key, is your site encrypted with a specific passcode letting the site know it’s your site specifically? Second, your data integrity, is your data and the data of users safe on your site? Or is there a possible crack? Thirdly, authentically, are you protected for direct attacks?
Essential for being user compatible, Google is way smarter now with a lot of updates under its belt. Making a mobile friendly site is essential to maintaining a successful ranking position. This also includes images up to date and content padding. Dead links on your site is also a big compatibility error.
How long does it take for your page to load? This sort of ties back to compatibility, if it takes 20 seconds to load a page then you are considered out-dated and it will put a damper on your overall rank.
These are just some of the major parts to making sure your SEO is done correctly, so there is no one single method that works without the others!
Backlinks are a major part to this process. A backlink, in short, is a “link back” from another site The only way to truly establish that trust quick enough and efficiently is with high quality backlinks, but the word backlink is a dual blade, you can have a bunch of backlinks from sites that have nothing to do with you and then you are ranking for birthday cakes when you subcontract a construction business! While some Charleston Marketing businesses might say “hey look at all the traffic you got” reality is that those “customers” were looking for birthday cakes. So it is imperative to do backlinking, but also correctly.
Like we discussed earlier. Backlinks are measured by many different aspects, was it anchored correctly? Did the backlink come from a relevant site? Was the authority of the backlink low or high? Was it an image or a text hyperlink? We litterally could go on and on down the rabbit hole of information. Understanding these aspects and qualities is what makes us the best at South Carolina SEO hands down.
