Are you a small business owner seeking an affordable, reliable SEO company in South Wales? Or just wondering how much SEO in South Wales might cost? Then you’re in the right place — I’ve been helping small firms in South Wales grow online through SEO and web design since 2005 (and doing that for larger firms since 1997).
So that clears up the first of many trust issues small firms have with SEO — I’m not a fly-by-night. Nor am I doing this to make big profits. If I were, I’d be targeting bigger firms with bigger budgets.
No, I offer small business SEO in South Wales to help small businesses in our area. That’s why I build websites, too. Frankly, SEO “experts” who can’t build websites don’t know much about SEO.
The Small Business SEO Problem
Likewise though, web designers and web developers don’t always know much about SEO. Many are only interested in graphic design or coding, and see SEO as someone else’s job. Others skip performance factors to keep their prices down. So small businesses end up with an under-performing website, in need of SEO — but “affordable SEO” is a sea full of sharks.
So they go looking for recommendations — but often among those who’ve already been bitten by the sharks. Those who’ve had better experiences have usually dealt with SEO agencies who charge over £500 a month. That’s very affordable for most small firms with more than a few employees, but not so much for micro-businesses — who are more likely to need affordable SEO.
Does that sound familiar? Because there’s a reason for that catch:
SEO requires consistent investment in quality. That’s fundamentally what search engines reward, because it’s what visitors generally want to see.
That requires a lot of skilled work over time, and that takes significant, sustained investment. It is a great investment, but not a quick-fix. Even Google says the results of SEO work often aren’t visible for four to twelve months or more.
So small firms often give up on SEO before it has had a chance to work. Knowing this, SEO specialists (who have no other services to sell) have a strong incentive to use the dodgy “black hat” tactics that can show quick results, but do more harm than good in the long run (because search engines penalise those who try to rig their game).
So what’s a small business owner like you to do? Especially if you’re a sole trader or other microbusiness?
Safe, Affordable Small Business SEO In South Wales
My SEO Plus packages aim to help small businesses in South Wales — including microbusinesses. How can they do that and still stay affordable?
In short, by effective analysis, flexible targeting and being sustainable. Traditional SEO packages for larger firms tend to focus on a few specific, highly competitive keywords for months. Yet the biggest advantage small firms have is flexibility. So small businesses are better off following what their own site’s stats say are the best search terms to focus on, month by month.
Yes, your site can tell you that. If you have it set up correctly and know what to look for. That’s what I do.
Either way, there’s a lower limit to how much you’ll need to invest to make any progress. It’s just that it can be lower if you can be flexible, stats-led, and can play the long game. Because slow progress is still better than slipping backwards as your competitors improve their marketing.
Going Beyond SEO In South Wales With “SEO Plus”
Still, when your entire marketing budget only runs to a few hundred pounds a month or less, committing much of that to one marketing strategy may not feel sustainable, flexible or affordable. That’s where the “Plus” comes in.
Whilst my SEO Plus packages are focused on SEO, they’re really flexible marketing plans that help with other strategies, too. They include a free Social Media Marketing scheduling system, and in any given month, we can swap the SEO tasks for others, like content marketing or creating short marketing videos.
