What Does an SEO Consultant Do?

Keyword Research

To ensure that your SEO campaigns are targeting the topics that will generate qualified traffic and leads, your SEO consultant will identify the keywords that have a high search volume and relevance to your business.

Content Strategy

Once your keywords have been identified, your SEO consultant will put together a plan for generating content to target each of those keywords, provide value to your audience, and entice them to convert.

Backlink Acquisition

When it comes to high search engine rankings, backlinks are gold. An SEO consultant will develop a plan for acquiring and maintaining high-quality backlinks that improve your website's authority in the eyes of Google, Bing, and other search engines.

Optimization & Reporting

To track your SEO strategy's effectiveness, your SEO consultant will set up regular reporting intervals, using tools like Google Search Console and others to track your rankings and trends and keep you in the loop.

Transparent Pricing

We work with you and your SEO expert to write well-defined scopes of work and agree to fixed weekly or monthly pricing.

SEO Consulting: The Complete Guide to Hiring a Consultant

Could SEO Consulting be the ultimate way for your business to increase sales and revenue? 

80% of customers start their product research with a search engine, and over 90% of online experiences begin with a query typed into a site like Google. The statistics show us that standing out on search engines is crucial if you want to attract leads and increase conversions. 

Unfortunately, while many companies are aware of the value of “Search Engine Optimization,” they struggle to implement the right strategy correctly. SEO is a complex topic, with constantly-changing rules and algorithms to adhere to. Without a fully dedicated professional on your team to keep you one step ahead of the competition, you can quickly lose visibility.

Fortunately, SEO experts, including freelance SEO consultants from Growth Collective, can help.
