SEO Cardiff — Newport — Bristol

Search Engine Optimisation in South Wales

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is a very cost-effective way to increase website traffic and boost sales. So investing in expert SEO ser­vices will help your business grow. If you target local markets like Bristol or Cardiff, SEO can help even more by focusing on “Local SEO”.

Still, SEO is an investment in quality, not a quick fix. Google pen­alises “black hat” attempts to rig fast results. Sadly, some “SEO spe­cialists” still push them, giving SEO a bad name.

Small firms often get caught out by that. Some even believe the false claims that SEO doesn’t work. SEO is all about doing what works, to get better search engine pos­i­tioning. Doing what Google dis­courages isn’t good SEO.

So, you don’t just need any SEO company. You need an expert SEO company that provides safe seo ser­vices through cost-effective, “white hat” search engine optim­isation. That’s what I offer.

I have been using Netcentrics’ SEO service and they have impress­ively managed to get over 250 of my keywords onto the first page of the search results. A very friendly and thor­oughly pro­fes­sional service. Highly recom­mended. — Mark D. SEO: (5/5)

Small Business SEO in Cardiff, Newport, Bristol & Beyond

Many small busi­nesses prefer to use local SEO ser­vices. So as a Newport SEO company, I tend to offer SEO in South Wales and the South West, including Cardiff, Bristol, Swansea, Gloucester, Hereford, Swindon and Taunton. So if you’re looking for a Cardiff SEO company or Bristol SEO, look no further!

SEO ser­vices are provided remotely, though. So you don’t need to be based near Cardiff or Bristol, or even in Wales or the South West. I provide small business SEO ser­vices across the UK — and beyond, if needed.

SEO Company, Agency, Specialist — Does It Matter?

Whilst SEO is very spe­cific about words, titles like company, agency and spe­cialist can seem inter­changable. That’s fine, but how SEO com­panies really operate can matter. Here’s why:

  • SEO spe­cialists only sell one thing. Some are great, but costly. Others sell SEO as the answer to everything, ignoring how it can help other strategies.
  • SEO agencies either have in-house teams to support, or keep costs down by out­sourcing the labour-intensive bits. That can work well — but some out­source it all, and don’t learn enough about SEO them­selves to tailor strategies to your needs.

My SEO Plus packages offer informed, unbiased advice across a full range of digital mar­keting ser­vices. Some out­sourcing keeps them affordable for smaller busi­nesses, but years of exper­ience lets me provide custom strategies.

Just saw that my site is now in 2nd place on the first page of Google. I’m not sure what you have done, nor do I under­stand it, but it worked! Many thanks! — Tim D. SEO: (5/5)

Why Search Engine Optimisation?

Effective SEO takes time but pays for itself because it’s one of the best ways to get traffic to your site. Without traffic, you lose sales. So it’s far better to get started than left behind.

The main altern­ative, paid ads, are an ongoing cost. That reduces your margins — often by too much to be sustainable.

The Problem With Paid Ads

Paid ads can easily cost £50 per website visitor delivered — some­times far more. Typically, less than 5% of site vis­itors are ready to buy, and under 1% do so. So if you need 200 vis­itors to make a sale, paid ads can easily cost you £200 per sale. Will your profit margin handle that?

Ad traffic also dries up as soon as you stop paying for it — and paid ads don’t build the trust needed to make sales. So if ads don’t pay for them­selves during the cam­paign, there’s very little lingering benefit — just the cost.

On top of all that, many paid ads rely on offering dis­counts. That cuts profit margins even further.

So let’s be clear — whilst paid ads can work well, you need to know your numbers and strategies. Many small busi­nesses try paid ads because they seem easy, then struggle because the cost per sale is to high. Yet by the time they realise that, it’s hard to quit. Losing traffic — even costly traffic — can be scary.

The True Value Of SEO

By com­parison, investing in expert SEO ser­vices delivers those valuable vis­itors for free. You’re buying a stronger website, not vis­itors — and you don’t have to offer dis­counts for that.

Remember, each free visitor saves you buying their attention through paid ads. So those 200 vis­itors would still be worth £200 — in savings.

Actually, SEO tends to deliver more valuable vis­itors, because those who are act­ively seeking your ser­vices are more likely to buy. It increases brand awareness and trust, too — helping sales long after your SEO cam­paign has ended.

That increased trust boosts click-through rates on your ads, reducing ad costs. So SEO even improves paid ad cam­paigns.

The benefits of SEO aren’t imme­diate, but they are lasting. So unlike paid ads, ongoing SEO builds on itself month after month.

How Much Does Small Business SEO Cost?

Before we talk about how much small business SEO costs, we need some context. So remember — running just two Facebook ads can easily cost over £200 a month, with little lasting benefit.

Now, most UK SEO com­panies, SEO agencies and SEO con­sultants charge at least £500 a month for small business SEO — often far more. That’s because the returns far exceed those invest­ments. It’s also hard to get results for less in some markets. Some claim it’s impossible, and that’s broadly true for large, highly-com­pet­itive markets.

Still, I aim to provide cost-effective SEO ser­vices for small busi­nesses — including micro-busi­nesses with under ten employees. Clearly, investing £500+ per month to hire an SEO expert can be chal­lenging for small firms.

Sadly, because they only have one thing to sell, cheap SEO spe­cialists often rely on black hat tech­niques and excessive claims to make quick sales. They use dodgy quick-fixes and dis­appear before they fail.

So how are my small business SEO ser­vices different?

SEO “Plus” Plans For Small Business

Well, for one thing, I provide far more than SEO in South Wales and the South West. Hosting web­sites means I can’t just vanish if things go wrong. So my incentive is to provide lasting benefits through reliable, white hat techniques.

My “SEO” packages also cover far more than just SEO. Why?

Because my goal is to help you grow. Other digital mar­keting strategies work too, and com­mitting long term budget to SEO alone can be restrictive when cash flow is a concern. I offer things like content mar­keting, video mar­keting and more anyway, so why not let you switch between these strategies whenevery you need to?

That’s why these uniquely flexible small business SEO packages offer incredible value, starting from just £165 a month.

Local SEO for Cardiff, Newport & Bristol SMEs

SEO Cardiff - Newport - Bristol - South Wales & Southwest EnglandMany small busi­nesses around Cardiff and Bristol serve local clients, but think SEO is for national markets. In fact, Google knows where your vis­itors live and pro­motes ser­vices close to them. At least, it pro­motes firms that get Local SEO right.

That’s espe­cially true for local searches like “dentists in Newport”, “vets Bristol” or “SEO Cardiff”. Such searches provide valuable, tar­geted leads for firms who serve local clients. Targeted leads cost far less per sale than tra­di­tional broadcast mar­keting, because they are more likely to buy.

Local searches also show a block of busi­nesses and map above other “organic” (unpaid) search results that Google calls the “Local Pack”. So local SEO can really put your company on the map. That local pack also shows a star rating based on your reviews — which helps to build trust and boost sales.

How Is Local SEO Different?

Local Search Engine Optimisation focuses more on loc­ation and repu­tation than general SEO. So local SEO factors include struc­tured data, reviews and the NAP cita­tions in dir­ectory listings that search engines use to val­idate your business location.

Even tiny vari­ations in NAP listings matter, but keeping listings con­sistent across many dif­ferent dir­ect­ories can be tricky. Likewise, good reviews are also vital for mas­tering local SEO — but one poor review can have a big impact when you’re starting out.

So you need the right tools to improve and manage these factors safely and easily. That’s why I offer those Local Search Engine Optimisation tools and ser­vices from just £75/month.
