Why bring your SEO in-house?

Why bring your SEO in-house rather than outsource? The answer is simple, no one knows your products, your industry, your customers and your marketing objectives better than you do. Furthermore, SEO is not some form of esoteric knowledge known only to a few industry professionals, rather it's a form of knowledge that you can quickly learn and apply yourself. The investment in time and money spent learning SEO will be returned time and time again.

The objective is to teach you and/or your marketing staff valuable SEO techniques that will increase your online visibility amongst your target consumers or buyers. These techniques include:

  • How to conduct effective keyword research.
  • How to increase search engine visibility.
  • How to maximize click-through rate from organic results.
  • How to increase customer acquisition from site visitors.
  • How to increase sales value and frequency.
  • How to increase brand awareness and product reach.
  • How to use e-mail to encourage long term customer retention.

You will gain an understanding of Keyword Research, Competitor Research, Unique Content, and how these tactics underpin and maximize the return from your website by driving pre qualified visitors to your site who, for the most part, have already decided to buy.

      I like to be in control, plus, like you said, I don't like telling my secrets to others. there are things that everyone should know and than there are things that took me years of doing SEO to find out the hard way and I'm not about to share it for free. When I do decide to share them that will be one hell of a link bait :)
