There are important steps that need to be taken as the owner of your site. I'll be helping with as many as you'd like me to. Go ahead and get back to doing what it is you do best while I take care of the technical aspects.
These are the items you can choose from that you'd like to have me do on your behalf. If there is something you don't see on this list, feel free to ask, I have quite a few things I can help with that aren't listed here.
This is why everyone who wants a successful business, even if you own a brick and mortar, needs to perform these tasks.
I dig deep into what your competitors are doing and what they have done that you have not done yet. There are usually about 50-80 things I look at when combing through your competitors site. Here is a sample report to give you an idea of the typical worksheet I work off of.
I use more than 5 different keyword research platforms and tools to determine which keywords you may have overlooked or didn't even know to go after. I like looking for a sweet spot, which is a moderate/high search volume with low competition.
Once I know which keywords to target, I then go out and find web 2.0 sites, social media sites, discussion groups, micro blogs, image oriented social sites, article houses, etc and create a link back to your site. Your keywords will start move up across all of the major engines from this alone let alone the other tasks I will be performing. Your traffic will also start to increase because of this.
Don't let it intimidate you. Google will favor your site for having these and if you already have them, increased activity will help with your ranking. I will determine which ones you have and which ones you need. I'll then go out and register those on your behalf, use your company logo, contact info and pictures to establish these. From there, I'll make sure they get exposure, likes, follows, comments, etc. Google is looking for this activity and refers to it as social mentions. Traffic will also be increased from this aspect as well.
It's true that Google loves content, again most businesses owners don't have time to sit down and create a blog post or write an article from scratch every day, every other day or sometimes even once a week. I will be writing unique, relevant, error free, unspun content to your blog, site and/or social media accounts on your behalf.
This simple implementation tripled sales and boosted leads by 300% and increased opt ins by 15x in a day for a client... WITH LESS traffic than the previous day. Ethically Spy on Your Visitors with Real-Time Visitor Recordings, Heat Maps, & Conversion Optimization that's Guaranteed to Increase Engagement & Sales.

Being able to see what's working and what isn't is important with any marketing effort. This is no different. I will provide you with detailed reporting either twice a month or monthly outlining increases in page views, bounce rates, keyword ranking improvements per keyword per search engine as well as traffic increases per keyword.
I often get asked about myself, how I got started in all of this. Here's the skinny...
As far as the love of computers is concerned, I started with a commodore 64 growing up (that's a ways back for you younger folks). I watched technology boom from there, I even built PC's and repaired them for a while.
Then came the 1200 through 144k baud modems. I ran a multi node bulletin board service in my parents basement growing up with over 10 phone lines and 10 servers jam packed with apps and games and message boards. Best Buy even packed my startup disk in their PC boxes for a while.
Then came along Prodigy and AOL. I watched the internet become what it is today and have had a hand in it for some time. A few years after that I started making web pages, learning the ins and outs of indexing and ranking them. I've seen a lot come and go in that regard.
My passion is marketing, both online and off. I love helping businesses with their internet presence not only because I have a lot of fun doing it, but because I'm good at it.
If there's something you don't see addressed here, email me and I'll get back to you.
Why don't you charge very much?
I don't need to gouge you to convince you I know what I'm doing. I've helped hundreds of companies, a lot of which small businesses with a tight budget. I don't have a huge overhead or employees. I work from home, and I support my family doing this full time.
How do you take payment?
I take PayPal, 2CO (using a credit card online), or you can always call me directly with card info as I have my own in house merchant account. Charges will appear on your statement as My Traffic Butler or Genesis Discoveries.
How long does SEO and Link building take?
How long does advertising or marketing take? SEO is never finished, just like marketing is never finished. This is the first thing I want you to understand - SEO, the social media scene and link building is an ongoing process. You can stop whenever you want with me, but I can tell you one thing, your competitors probably won't and eventually you'll slide back down to where you started in the rankings. Again, if you don't have me do it, find someone to keep the ball rolling.
There's no such thing as SEO in a hurry. If you're in a situation where your success depends on immediate search engine visibility via SEO, you've already failed by expecting immediate results by paying someone a small sum of money for something you semi understand. If you need search engine visibility in a hurry, you should be looking at pay-per-click, not SEO. I can help with pay per click if you like, don't get me wrong, I do have clients that have wanted immediate visibility. If you're looking for immediate traffic and exposure for your site while I'm performing my more popular tasks, then you're best bet is to email me and we'll setup a sponsored ad campaign.
How long until I see results on the SEO?
That depends on a few different factors. Most people usually see movement within the first month. A couple of the biggest factors include the keywords we are trying to improve the ranking of and how many competitors are trying the same thing. The size of your site (number of pages), number of inbound links when we start and the age of your site will also play into the time it will take. All of these are things I look at when we begin. Usually after the first month I can get a very good feel for that answer. Some sites that have a lot of inbound links, but bad content and no social media presence, just need a content overhaul and more social media presence. When that is the case, results follow very quickly. When you have a great site but no links and no social media activity, then it generally takes a little longer, but it's never anything impossible, and it shouldn't scare you. You've made it this far, just a couple more steps and you'll be exactly where you want to be.
Are there any contracts, will I be locked in for a certain amount of months?
No, this is a simple month to month plan. I have been doing this for many years and am very confident that you will be pleased with both the service and the results. As a result of my confidence I refuse to lock you into anything. I don't work that way, I never have. You can cancel at ANY TIME. Simply email me and I'll make the arrangements. IMPORTANT; cancellation requests must be sent to me 7 business days prior to the recurring date which is the day of the month you initially signed up on.
What kind of reports can I expect to receive when I sign up ?
Up to 3. The first one is called a benchmark report. This report outlines where you currently show up in the major search engines per keyword. As time progresses, either every 2 weeks or every month, I will rerun this report and emai it to you. Each time I rerun the report, it will compare the results from the previous report ran to outline progress. I would suggest doing this once a month as opposed to every 2 weeks as you wont see as much movement as you would in a 30 day period. The second report is the seo report. This is the report that details suggested site changes in order to better your natural search engine positions for your keywords. The last report is a keyword research report. I will make sure you're taking advantage of all of the keywords you possibly can. Click here to see an example of an SEO report. A ranking report sample can be found here.
What do you need from me ?
It depends on which option you end up signing up for. Once you sign up, I look at what you ordered and contact you with what additional information I might need. To speed this process up email me after you sign up with as much information as you can in reference to what it was you ordered.
Can I ever get a hold of you to discuss other projects I don't see on the order page?
Of course you can, I offer all kinds of various other services. Email me what it is you're looking for and I can send you a list of pricing.
You haven't made it this far with your business by making bad decisions and since I am a one man show working from home with no employees or overhead, you won't need to take out a loan to have me help out your business.
I accept PayPal, 2CO (using a credit card online), or you can always call me directly with card info as I have my own in house merchant account. If you have any questions that I don't cover in the FAQ section, simply contact me by going here, the contact page.
All of the below options include a one time startup fee of 50 dollars to cover initial report creation, initial setup across typically 3 servers and of course the research needed. Use the 2CO button if you'd like to use a major credit card online through a secure connection. Use the PayPal button if you'd like to use your PayPal account to pay for the service, also through a secure connection. If you'd rather call me with your credit card information, simply get a hold of me at 1-331-223-9026. Charges may appear on your statement as My Traffic Butler or Genesis Discoveries. Keep in mind any of these recurring services can be canceled, upgraded or downgraded at any time. By clicking on the sign up buttons below you agree to the terms and services on the FAQ section.
