Knowledge is deep within so many areas, inbound, content, organic and paid search, social media, email, the list goes on

I've been working with Craig and his team for years and cannot recommend him highly enough. He always has the most up to date knowledge and truly understands the "why" behind many marketing strategies. His knowledge is deep within so many areas, inbound, content, organic and paid search, social media, email, the list goes on.

Having such a wide set of skills gives me comfort that whatever suggestions he has are well thought out and goal oriented, unlike so many fad marketing companies that only focus on a single channel or modality that suffer from "I have a hammer so everything must be a nail" type thinking. To top it off, Craig is one of the nicest guys you could meet. He's easy to work with, solutions focused and always gives in depth explanations into any campaign. I always learn something new after talking to Craig!

Added value to our marketing strategy

Craig Bailey assisted us with developing and refining the strategy for promoting a major new initiative in education. He was able to guide us to clarity about our key messages and target audiences, as well as how to link the personas for those target audiences to those key messages and the channels we will use.
He was outcomes-focused, kept us concentrated on the problem we are trying to solve for the end user and added great value to our marketing strategy.
Craig is also very enjoyable to work with — the strategic lens he brought to bear never wavered, but we honed our strategy in a relaxed and fun session.

Details of the SEO Review

1. Regular SEO Audit

A regular SEO audit of your website, covering:

  • Content
  • Google crawl
  • Sitemap
  • Canonicalisation
  • Images
  • Page Titles
  • Meta Descriptions
  • Site speed
  • Mobile responsiveness
  • SSL implementation

The deliverable is a listing of the key technical SEO items identified on the site.

2. SEO Fixes

Based on the regular SEO audit we prioritise the key issues and recommendations to implement fixes.

We are able to perform these fixes in sites built on WordPress, elcomCMS or HubSpot. For other website platforms there may be an additional cost required to investigate their functionality and SEO options.

This includes:

  • technical items on the site including page titles and descriptions
  • site settings for canonical URLs and XML sitemaps
  • site navigation and internal linking

3. Research

In this phase we:

  • analyse current keyword rankings
  • perform keyword research to identify high value terms to rank for
  • prepare recommendations for keywords to target (based on search volume and likelihood of being able to rank for them ie competitiveness)

4. Content gap analysis

Based on the keyword research findings we:

  • analyse the current site content (content audit) in order to find content gaps
  • prepare a content list for content assets to be created

5. Training Plan

Based on the audit, research and analysis we:

  • train you on the priorities to action
  • train you on SEO trends and best practices
  • train you on how to specifically implement these on your site

Outcomes

1. SEO issues identified and fixed

Your site optimised for Google rankings and future growth.

2. Content strategy prepared

A full content plan prepared and prioritised, ready to be scheduled for content creation and promotion.

3. Market position and action plan

Not only do you understand your position in the market, but you also have an actionable plan for improving your digital impact.

Benefits

An SEO audit helps you to understand your current site benchmarks, including issues, weaknesses, strengths and opportunities.

SEO Audits are a key insight into the effectiveness of your web site. They highlight technical issues that need fixing, as well as indicating opportunities for improvement against competitors.

When to perform an SEO Audit

There are a number of common situations where an SEO audit offers value:

  • New site
  • Annual review
  • Significant change in traffic and/or conversions

Tools Used

An SEO audit involves analysing the site itself, as well as using a number of tools including Google Analytics, Google Search Console, Google My Business, Bing Webmaster Tools, SanityCheck, Google Ads (if appropriate), SEMrush and ahrefs.

Deliverables

The audit is delivered as a Google doc (or Word document or PDF), along with supporting Google Sheets (or Excel) spreadsheets.

The document is usually around 40-50 pages, but can grow for particularly large sites (eg large Government audits have been around 150 pages in past audits).

Pricing
