What makes our SEO, PPC, & Marketing Services Stand Out?

Each member of our team brings something valuable to the table. We approach everything from a psychological viewpoint. The founder has a master’s in psychology which makes every word choice and visual element calculated depending on the intended audience. Our Minneapolis Web Designer has 30 years experience in marketing and sales as well as 12 years in web design. Our Marketing Communications Consultant has a master’s in communication. Most agencies have a high-level understanding of what may work but may not know why, so they cast a wide net at the cost of the client. Understanding the target demographic matters more to a content marketing campaign than the content. Marketing that uses a psychological perspective has more impact, better results, and lower cost per conversion.

What is SEO?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. The primary focus of SEO is to increase your website traffic from organic sources. Typical when SEO is talked about it is in reference to Google search results but the goal of SEO is to increase free traffic from all search engines and referral sources. Unlike pay per click advertising, this traffic is free or as commonly referred to as ‘organic traffic.’

Are there any businesses where SEO or your services are not a fit?

Yes, we do turn away businesses because SEO or our services are not good fit for them. We are very transparent and will let you know if SEO might not work. SEO might not be a good fit for businesses that do not have the search volume to merit SEO compared to the potential ROI, the business is very niche, the industry is new and unknown, the product requires a long complex customer education journey, or the business has unrealistic expectations compared to their actual budget.

Do you work with those under HIPAA?

Yes, we do. Protecting patient data is important and you should hire a digital agency that understands and is aware of the risk of non-compliance.

Our consultants each have over 10 years digital marketing and SEO experience and much more in web design, we have built every type of site. However, our digital agency specializes in creating HIPAA compliant websites and marketing campaigns for medical professionals. We also provide digital HIPAA audits, consulting, and training. We are subject matter experts on digital HIPAA compliance. You could say the founder is a digital HIPAA therapist, since being under HIPAA and having his masters in psychology.

Do you offer other services besides SEO?

Absolutely! While we specialize in SEO and website design, we are a full-service digital agency. We offer a host of consultants who are experts in a wide range of digital services. We also consult on HIPAA compliance.

How long does SEO take to see results?

Since Google reported it had 3,234 updates in 2018, we cannot predict the future of your rankings. However, SEO works to not only drive traffic from Google, but also other organic sources to help you gain traffic. It is important to note that if you need leads now then we should talk about pay per click advertising.

Based off history with our clients, search engine optimization typically takes 3-6 months to see significant results for most clients. However, we do see measurable results earlier. SEO is an investment in the future of your business and unlike paid adverting, SEO continues long after the engagement period.

Can you guarantee rankings?

Ethically any reputable SEO agency or consultant would not. That is due to us not controlling what the search engines may change through any of the numerous yearly updates or what your competition will do. Any reputable SEO consultant will tell you this.

Any company that provides a guarantee should be treated as buyer beware and read the fine print. No company has inside knowledge or a special relationship with Google to submit you for higher rankings. if they say they do run away. With our experience we can make decisions based off historical insights, new emerging data research, and our testing sites that take a lot of the guess work out of search rankings. But we can not say you will get to this ranking in this time.

I see links for sale on other sites, why can’t I just buy links to my site?

Buying links from sites such as Fiverr or other link selling sites can cause big issues. First, buying links is against Google’s terms of service. If you get caught (and you likely will) you can lose all your rankings. Second, even if you do not get caught these sites are nearly always in the spammy or ‘bad neighbors’ of known sellers so they may still lower your rankings.

With Google’s Penguin update, having unnatural links can cause a penalty which can be hard to recover from. When we build links, we focus on quality outreach and our network of relationships we built over years of working in SEO to earn you natural and high-quality links.

Do you offer search engine optimization consulting?

Yes, our SEO consultant is happy to do phone, in person, and onsite consultations. We also offer SEO classes and corporate training. We understand businesses may have many reasons for looking for a consultant, they may already have an expert, a team, or they wear every hat. However, they sometimes get stuck and need a fresh opinion. We also have a variety of SEO packages if consulting is not enough.

I want to target all dentist searches (insert any single industry term); can you get me ranked for that?

For a competitive search terms that are broad like ‘dentist’ those searches are much harder to rank for. This is due to how much resources would go into ranking for that broad of a term. Also, you are likely not trying to focus nationally for your dentist SEO. You could rank there if a map appears on that search based of local SEO and the proximity to the searcher. That being said, we focus our efforts on more local searches in those cases. Like the search term with a local modifier.

Should I also do PPC in addition to SEO?

Pay per click advertising is a great addition to most SEO campaign. It can assist with finding hidden search gems, supplement sales while waiting for SEO to start to work, increase brand awareness, or help expand into new markets. While we say most SEO campaigns, there are times where PPC isn’t a good fit based on a variety of factors. We will let you know if or when PPC is worth pursuing.
