Search Engine Optimisation explained in 2 minutes:
Our digital growth guide to scaling your business fast.
Why reinvent the wheel, when you can take what’s already working and improve on it? We start with keyword research and competitive research to identify the right strategy that will deliver predictable results.
Our competitor assessment reveals what’s already working in the market. So we take the best of what’s out there, and implement it onto your website. We fix technical SEO issues, rebuild site structure problems, and lay out a content plan.
We then turn to getting high quality, high DA and relevant backlinks from strictly white hat sources. We use guest blogging and custom outreach campaigns to build backlinks in a natural way (so you’ll NEVER get penalised by Google).

Audit your website for technical and content improvements
We start by understanding your business, your objectives, and target keywords. With this in hand, we audit the strength of your website SEO against our industry best practice technical and content checklist. You get an SEO score, and a list of quick wins and opportunities for improvements.
Assess the competition
We use ALL the competitive analysis tools, SEMRush, Ahrefs, Moz, BuzzSumo, etc. to find out what’s already working in the market. We prefer reducing risk by modelling what’s already working and improving on your best competitor’s success. This will give us a clear view on the strategy required.
Set SEO objectives and KPIs
Now we set the objectives for the campaign. We look to work it back to revenue, so we present a plan to increase KPIs, which will increase rankings, organic traffic, and ultimately, new customers.
On-site technical improvements
Our team of SEO nerds then run through your audit and fix all of the issues we found. This is a one-off stage that works with what you already have.
On-site content improvements
Part of our strategy building in stages 1 & 2 will identify keyword research (feature keywords, secondary and semantic keywords) for each page existing on your site. Our SEO trained writers will now use this list to clean up your existing pages, strengthening their SEO.
Content Calendar creation and new pages
Keyword Gap Analysis will find keywords which your website isn’t already optimised for. Top of the Funnel keywords will be scheduled into Blog Posts and Bottom of the Funnel keywords will be scheduled for new SEO-optimised pages to be created.
Backlink building campaigns
We will review your top 10 competitor’s backlink profiles, combining the best of their backlinks into a master backlink plan that is engineered to outperform them all. We then roll out a monthly backlink building program, targeting only white hat, high DA and relevant backlinks..
Monthly reporting and tracking
Our team deliver monthly reports to make sure you have 100% visibility on the work we are doing for you each month. We also setup keyword rank tracking to measure exactly how our strategies are impacting your ranking positions.
Quarterly KPI review
Each 90 days we schedule a review with our team and your team. Here we assess how the strategies are delivering against our objectives.
SEO is a long term game and its one which is constantly changing, and shifting like the stock market. We aim for continual improvement each month by constantly reviewing strategies and approaches to ensure we are moving in the right direction.
Don’t let anyone promise you a position #1 ranking. If they do, they’re lying. SEO is a constantly evolving beast, with Google now employing even more AI and machine learning algorithms to develop their ranking sets.
The best any of us can do is follow best practices, work hard on the fundamentals of good quality user experience, and track, measure and learn quickly.

Q. How do I know if I need SEO?
A. If you have a product or service that people are searching for and you’re not in the tops spots for those keywords then the business case for SEO is probably going to be strong.
Q. Which is better, SEO or Google AdWords?
A. If you have the budget you should be doing both. AdWords can also help fast track your SEO strategy by confirming which are you most profitable keywords to target organically.
Q. How long does it take to see results?
A. We’d like to say in 3-4 months you’ll be on page 1 but we’ll leave that for the dodgy SEO companies. In reality it depends. An average Campaign can take 6-12 months. Sometimes longer, sometimes quicker. More competitive keywords can take longer and every keyword behaves differently.
Q. How much does it cost?
A. If you’re hoping for serious SEO for $300 a month then we’re not for you. Our SEO programs start from $1,250 mth (inc GST).
Q. Does my website need to be mobile friendly?
A. It needs to be both mobile friendly and fast! According to Kissmetrics, 47% of people expect a page to load in 2 seconds or less and 40% will actually abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load. Use these Google tools to test your mobile friendliness and speed.
Q. What are the best tools for SEO?
A. SEMRush, Ahrefs, Moz andMajestics.
Q. Can you guarantee I’ll get results?
A. Not this day, or any other. If you can send us a copy of Google’s algorithm then we can talk.
Q. Do you use lock in contracts?
A. No. You can cancel out anytime, but we do ask for one month notice.
