FREELANCE LOCAL SEO CONSULTANT

Delivering revenue driven Local SEO strategies which drive leads, crushes competition and puts money in your bank. 

Need More Local Leads?

Local SEO traffic sends you warm, 'ready to buy' leads and supports business growth.

Mention 'leads' in a digital marketing sense and people often only think about paid traffic which you can switch on and off, like Google Ads. 

But in fact, the best source of traffic for warm leads comes from local SEO queries like 'double glazing in Manchester' for example. And the reason for this is quite simple.

The user has shown buyers intent specifically for that service in that area. If they searched for just 'double glazing', it doesn't actually mean they're in buying mode. A small, yet crucial difference.

So if you're a local business, your best quality leads are those from 'money keywords'. How are you ranking for yours?

Four Stage Local SEO Consulting

Using a freelance SEO consultant gives you a more autonomous service as opposed to a one-size fits all agency approach. My process delivers a measurable ROI and outstanding results for Local SEO clients.

'Money' Keywords

Step 1

Research keywords to identify those which actually make you money. You're not interested in vanity rankings which don't make you a penny.

You v Competitors

Step 1

Investigate who is ranking above you for your money keywords and why. I can't beat them without knowing why they are performing better than you.

Build The Strategy

Step 1

Based on data analysis, I'll build a powerful and proven Local SEO strategy to get you where you need to be to see your return as quickly as possible.

Deployment

Step 4

Through onsite SEO, content and link building that moves the needle, you'll see your investment grow quicker than any SEO team you've used before. 

Why Your competitors are getting The Best leads

What difference would getting 30% of these mean to your income? 

The maths is simple. The higher you rank in Google, the more leads you receive. Rank #1, get 31% of clicks. Rank #10, get 3% of clicks.

And, a staggering 75% of all clicks are between #1-3, so if you're languishing below this then you're essentially feeding on scraps while your competitors help themselves to a never ending banquet. 

And if you're stuck on page 2 of Google, then I've got some bad news. Just 25% of users reach page 2 and just 0.78% click on any of the results here.

So let me ask you again, how are you ranking for your money keywords?

So What is Local SEO?

The Internet allows your website to be ranked and seen across the World, but Local SEO ensures your business is seen by the people you want most - local clients. 

Who Needs Local SEO?

Businesses that provide products and services in only specific locations, SHOULD be doing Local SEO.

For example, a shoe shop in Manchester which relies on passing trade, or a double glazing company that covering multiple towns across Cheshire. A business needs to be found for their keywords in the areas that they serve.

This is pretty straightforward when your business is based in the location it serves. But what about serving multiple areas like our double glazing company? 

How would they go about ranking for any other locations other than the one where they are based?

How Do I Optimise for Local SEO?

Here's how I've achieved this goal for hundreds of local businesses in my job as a Local SEO consultant...

Optimise the homepage for main keywords and the area the business is based, and then create doorway pages which are specific to keywords in the locations your want to rank for.

Let's say our double glazers are based in Stockport. The homepage would be optimised for something like 'pvcu windows Stockport' and then there would be 20 or so pages covering each of the most populated towns. These pages would all be optimised for 'pvcu windows in [location]'.

How to Rank Higher in Local Searches?

This really is Local SEO 101 stuff but it gets results.

Follow this up with a well optimised Google My Business page, citations, directory listings and Social Signals and you can expect to start seeing an increase in rankings within 3-5 months.

Personally, I like to turbocharge Local SEO campaigns by building the strongest backlink profile possible. Lots of your competition don't do this, so there is always an opportunity for them to be beaten.

You see, SEO isn't difficult. Obviously there is more to it but anyone can so the basics. So what's stopping you from taking your rankings to the next level?

A Local SEO Service That Builds Businesses

Being a Freelance SEO Consultant means that I can tap in to the best networks to deliver quick and sustainable results. I look at it like building a house.

Everything starts with an on-site and off-site audit. This allows me to assess the following:

The Solid Foundations

The Top Spec Interior

This is where me and clients make our money. Through a mixture of engaging content and turbocharged backlinks, my Local SEO campaigns are put on steroids. This will have everyone wanting to pay you a visit

Links are the single most important factor for achieving those top-tier rankings and don't let anyone tell you otherwise.

If you're serious about breaking the monopoly, then my link building expertise will get you there.

Why Use a Freelance Local SEO Consultant and Not an Established Digital Agency?

Not all digital agencies are created equal. In fact, most are pretty poor value when it comes to SEO. Here's why you'll see better value through a freelance SEO like me.

Competitive Rates

Step 1

I don't have employees or a fancy office for you to fund. In fact, my only real outgoings are the SEO tools I use to help me protect and grow your investment. 

Focused On You

Step 1

My day isn't full of "strategy" meetings, endless phone calls, emails and chats at the water cooler. My time is money, for both you and I.

We're Partners

Step 1

Between the two of us we have trust. I protect and grow your investment, while you help to ensure that I can pay bills and support my family.

Bespoke Campaigns

Step 4

You're not getting bog standard off-the-shelf Local SEO service. Your campaigns are tailored to your actual goals, whether short or long-term. 

Accountability

Step 1

Your investment begins and ends with me. There's no hiding behind a chain of command or passing the buck. 

Single POC

Step 1

I'm the sales guy, your account manager, your SEO specialist and my accounts team. You won't be passed when you need something.

Network of Specialists

Step 1

I use hand-picked, trusted specialists in different fields when it adds value. Your campaigns aren't limited to just one teams skill set.

Flexible Contracts

Step 4

I'm always happy to thrash out a deal that suits us both, so long as it's realistic. No minimum term, 30 days notice as standard.

Excellent

The project ran extremely smoothly and I was never in any doubt that I was working with a genuine specialist. We got more valuable lead in the first 8 months than I have done in 2 years with my old digital agency. Always felt in safe hands.

My experience is bitter sweet. Business is absolutely thriving but it showed me just how many tens of thousands of pounds I've lost to young flashy sales guys and agencies with no substance. Couldn't have asked for a better service and results produced.
