We are here to help build / promote your website and to make it a success, when you contact us we will do our best to investigate / quote and promote your website to bring in more visitors, here is a sample conversation after telling a Wedding Photogrpaher in Essex that their site wasnt search engine friendly.
[Website Client] Really thought the site was ok for the search engines, what’s the next step if I want to get you to update / promote it?
[SEO Company] I have tried some more phrases to see where you are on Google but couldn’t find you on page 1 for things like ‘photographer in Essex’ or ‘wedding photographers in Essex’ so would be good to have a chat. I have called a few times but haven’t been able to reach you, when is the best time to call?.
[Website Client] We get so many website design / SEO calls so please can you just tell us via email initially what is wrong and what you can do to help us as we are still not ranking for a lot of search terms we think we should including ‘wedding photographer in Essex’
[SEO Company] It has been a while since I contacted you, so great to see you kept hold of my details. Of course, I understand that email is better for you initially – this happens a lot so not a problem.
There are some things that jump out with the website itself that will help (h1 tags, social media, title tags,) and it will be worth peaking with your current website designers to ask about making it responsive/mobile compatible. Google have a test (Google’s Mobile Friendly Test) that show your website doesn’t pass, this is something that they have said they may be using as a ranking factor shortly.
Our SEO team have looked into your site for me and it seems that you have over 6,000 backlinks (links to your site) from 1 website. This is something that Google will penalise you for and could explain why you are not ranking at all.
Once the website and bad links have been removed, the phrases are all coming back as achievable so with a good link building campaign, a page 1 ranking is possible. There is certainly the demand for your services as you can see from the below information:
“Wedding photographer Essex” gets 1,300 searches per month in Google UK
“Wedding photographers Essex” gets 590 searches per month in Google UK
“Essex wedding photographer” gets 1,000 searches per month in Google UK
We have really clear packages and pricing. Is there any further information you would like at this stage?
[Website Client] We have been told the site doesnt work well on mobile phones so please give us a detailed proposal for a full redesign and Google improvment package, we like detail so please give us as much detail as possible and tell us about the deposit payment and how soon can you start
[SEO Company] Great to hear from you again. No problem, happy to help. In a previous email, I had mentioned the mobile friendly aspect and it becoming a ranking factor with Google (as of the 21st April), so I can understand that this is really important to you moving forward.
All of our websites are now made to be responsive and all new designs pass the Google mobile friendly test. We have many different packages and levels available. One thing that would be important to discuss with you if you are available, is the ecommerce feature on your website. Is that an external feature that is integrated into your website? Important to note that these are guide prices and discounts are given for bundles of website design and search engine optimisation.
Example bundle offers:
Bronze website design for 15 pages plus Bronze Local SEO = £1,000 off fee & £200 monthly fee. Offer – No SEO Setup fee.
Silver website design for 15 pages plus Silver Local SEO = £1500 one off fee & £250 monthly fee. Offer – No SEO Setup fee AND daily updates to 1x social media account (Facebook or Twitter).
Payments can be split depending on what package you wanted to go for, so do you have any idea what levels you would like?
Just thought I would send you the research I had done for your website and some good keyphrases that would be worth optimising your site for. I have recently spoken with a lady on the number held on your website and she has said that she is not the person sending these emails and that the website should have been closed down. Can you please confirm that you are the legal owner of the site and business? And that those contact details are correct?
