Our team will outline local keywords that your campaign will include….focused around your primary services, offering and location based on where customers are searching from. This allows us to identify the required local content that will need to be created for your campaign.

These key terms will then be added to our SEO reporting tool – giving you live daily updates on each keyword and its progress (You will receive access to this dashboard).

Listen to Benjamin Paine and Annabelle Cochrane explain the ins and outs of SEO.

or read our comprehensive guide on “What is SEO

Most Brisbane businesses are paying a monthly retainer for SEO will pay between $1,000 to $1,500 AUD per month, with national Australian campaigns being in the $2,000 to $3,000 range. For those paying by the hour, $150 to $200 is the most popular SEO hourly rate. For one-off SEO campaigns and project based work, $3,000 to $5,000 per-project is common.

The cost of local SEO Services in Brisbane ranges from $1,000 per month to $3,000+ per month. This changes based on the SEO scope and inclusions in the campaign. A once-off setup / project cost for SEO can be $3,500 – $10,000+ depending on the number of pages required and keyword target quantity.

Common questions we frequently answer from clients are, “Why do I need SEO?” “Can’t I just run Google ads?” And while, yes, Google advertising and meta marketing can be fantastic lead-generation platforms and, in most cases, can provide the result in a matter of days,.

However, SEO is about compound returns and long-term success.

Example: Turn ads on, and leads start flowing. Turn your ads off, and the tap stops.

SEO works differently in that, by investing in your organic rankings, you can start ranking for the primary key terms that your customers are searching for. With a comprehensive strategy and some clever content, we can put you in the top positions for some of the industry’s most competitive terms.

A common question that we get asked… “Why is SEO important, or Why do I need to do SEO?”

The answer isn’t necessarily a simple one. 

SEO in most cases is a “no brainer” to invest into, with plenty of high-intent search traffic and keywords that are easy to obtain (low keyword difficulty) investing even just a small amount in a monthly campaign can very quickly provide a return…. and not just a return for a month or two… but long term compounding returns.

One statistic is that small businesses that invest in SEO, can see an average of 30%+ traffic increase within four months.

Now, yes the opposite can be true.

Low search volumes, with very hard-to-obtain keywords, may make you reconsider investing in an SEO campaign. This is why we always want to conduct an audit of your website, competitors & market opportunity prior to recommending any investment.

Yes, SEO can work for any business and the results we see across Brisbane for local businesses are a great example of this (Just see our case studies). Whether you are a small local trade business or an enterprise-level organisation, our SEO team will assess your website, create a tailored SEO strategy and implement it in alignment with your budget to meet your goals. Our team will then track and measure the progress of your SEO campaign, making measurable changes monthly to ensure that you are getting the best possible results. With our combined expertise in technical SEO, content creation, and authority building, we can help you achieve success with search engine optimisation.

Search engines take into account a number of factors and signals – and these change all the time. Overall, search engines monitor the words of your query, the relevance of your content, the usability of the website as a whole and the credibility of your referring links. Each of these factors has a different weight in the ranking system, and these change from time to time. This is why investing in a specialist team that is completely engulfed in the current SEO trends and ranking metrics pays off.
There are many ways to measure the success of your SEO campaign – if you are just commencing in SEO the first factor you will be focusing on is keyword rankings. Once you obtain a first page position, the next measure of success is organic traffic. Once your website has hit first position for your primary keyword, this is where CRO comes in – where we monitor conversion rates and how we can best set your website up for maximum conversions.

SEO vs Google Ads, which is the best option?

Together in a collaborative marketing strategy is the best result.

Key Point: Google Ads are fantastic to drive fast, intent driven leads, especially when implemented by an agency or professional. Meanwhile, SEO is the way to go when it comes to building long-term success, authority, and brand viability.
