Budget SEO Plan

SEO for Microbusinesses

Want to get started with SEO but feel even a flexible Starter SEO Plus package would stretch your budget? I hear you. That’s what this budget SEO plan is for.

Let’s be very clear about a few things first, though:

How Budget SEO Can Help — And What To Avoid

“Cutting costs” on mar­keting actually costs you more. How? Through missed sales. Investing more in digital mar­keting and SEO tends to make better returns. For instance, the SEO Plus plans are more effective than Budget SEO. So you need to invest in the best mar­keting solu­tions you can afford.

Budget SEO Can Be A Life-Saver

Having helped small busi­nesses for over 16 years, I know budgets are often tight for micro­busi­nesses with under 10 employees. Yet putting off SEO and digital mar­keting just loses sales. Then, the further you fall behind, the harder it becomes to afford marketing.

That vicious spiral often drags small busi­nesses under. This plan helps you avoid that.

Still, Most Cheap SEO Services Are Risky

This Budget SEO plan also aims to help you avoid the sharks. Too many make false promises about fast, cheap results, use banned tactics, then dis­appear when problems arise. Most are “SEO spe­cialists” in young com­panies, spamming people from free email addresses like Gmail to hide their tracks.

Whilst proper SEO can help, your success also depends on your market, your com­pet­itors, and you. So at best, Budget SEO is a life-belt, not a power-boat — but still far better than drowning or swimming with sharks.

SEO Takes Time

SEO rewards per­severance and con­sistent investment in quality. The less you invest, the longer it takes to show results. Even those who invest thou­sands per month in SEO expect it to take six months or more. So over­stretching in the short term won’t help you sustain it long enough to be effective. Sustainability matters.

Why does it take time? Because you are up against firms investing that much — even many small firms in the 10 to 50 employee range. Also, because search engines work hard to prevent quick-fixes that could be used to rig the results.

Safer Budget SEO

How can this low-cost SEO package help, then? Well, weaker back­links and shorter art­icles are less effective, but easier to create. In fact, back­links with “domain authority” (“DA”) under 10 don’t help much, even when created in bulk. However, those with DA between 10 and 20 can help you beat com­pet­itors who aren’t investing in SEO at all.

This Budget SEO plan is a smaller version of my Starter SEO Plus plan. It is limited to either one DA 10+ link, or one article of up to 500 words, but costs just £99 per month. The first month also covers stats setup and initial keyword research.

To provide the safest, most affordable entry-level SEO package pos­sible, this service has no minimum term.

Still not sure if this Budget SEO plan can help you?
