We create successful SEO campaigns...

So, how do we do it?

We have been working with businesses in Brisbane and across Australia for years! We have tested it all and know what works… and equally what doesn’t. Bringing this SEO expertise and years of experience into your next campaign… achieving the SEO results you are looking for!


Relevant Content

“What is content relevancy?”

Google wants to ensure it shows the right content to every user search…

To do this, they use EEAT, standing for; experience, expertise, authoritativeness, and trust. This allows all content to be crawled and assessed based on this framework. Our team creates all content in alignment with this, creating “expert” content, improving relevancy, and ultimately improving your position in SERPs.


Site Authority

Site authority is determined by multiple factors, from branded traffic to business age (domain age) and the key metric, backlinks. Having high-ranking, niche-relevant websites that are authoritative in your industry and linking through to your content dramatically boosts your credibility. Our link-building team will do this, creating a tailored link-building campaign based on your industry and your competitors link profiles.


User Experience

The website user experience has to be a great one!

This is speed, navigation, device compatibility, and content, to name a few. Having a team of designers, developers & experienced digital marketing experts… we can make sure this talent is involved in your SEO campaign… ultimately getting you a better result!

Brisbane's Local SEO Agency

Having worked with 100s of local Brisbane businesses across almost every industry, professional services, hospitality, automotive etc. We understand the nuances required to have a successful SEO campaign no matter your industry.

Whether you are looking to increase your presence in the Google Map pack (Local SEO) or increase the overall impression share on products or services – we can tailor our SEO Brisbane campaigns to be in alignment with your goals. 

Having a local SEO team working on your campaign, we can help in providing both insights into the your competitors and into your industry… that you may not be aware of. This could be “unique content” needing to be created, or new keywords that potentially your customers are searching for… we will provide you ongoing throughout your campaign.

Initial Consultation & Audit

We always start by understanding you business… your goals and the objectives you have from your SEO campaign. 

This can help us better align our strategy to suit the needs you have as a business, ultimately getting you a better result in the end.

From this consultation, our team will thoroughly analysis your website, from on-page copy, through to your link profile & technical corrective work that may be required.

By manually completing this prior to onboarding we can gage the requirements and resources required to get the best from your SEO campaign… consider it “creating a baseline”.


Keyword Research & Competitive Analysis

Upon onboarding and with the SEO audit documentation already completed, we can transition into your comprehensive keyword planner. This outlines the primary keywords to which we are targeting within your campaign. We will also implement these into our keyword tracking dashboard (which you get access to). 

Along with keyword research, we always undergo a competitive analysis, to ensure we haven’t missed opportunities that your “key” competitors may be capitalising on that you aren’t… We don’t want you to miss out!

Campaign Implementation

We move fast… often we are in campaign implementation within 1-2 weeks!

This is where our team now combines its findings from your baseline audit, any corrective measures needing to be addressed, keywords to target and competitive opportunities. 

All this will be combined into a structured roadmap for implementation… the team will work on any “critical” tasks first, often causing dramatic effects on your rankings (which can result in some great “quick wins”).

Ongoing SEO Campaign

Technical fixes corrected and with some of the “quick wins” obtained, your campaign transitions into a proactive SEO campaign.

Working on strategic content, writing “expert” level content to not just rank… but outrank your competitors. 

Creating topic pillars and cornerstone content on your website to increase your topical relevancy within your industry… and increase your authority by building on your backlink profile!

This is how your SEO campaign becomes a successful one…

Yes… we aren’t just a team of SEO experts…

We are a complete digital agency!

When you partner with us, you team up with an in-house team of local marketing specialists. Every strategy we develop, every piece of content we create, and every solution we implement is completed by our team members. We proudly do not outsource any part of our work.

Our no-lock-in contract policy means our team puts in effort every month to guarantee you see tangible results! 

No longer are you stuck in long-term contracts of 12-month SEO campaigns…

With businesses complaining about “lack of communication” or “zero transparency”. Our team is here… month in… month out, giving you complete transparency and approachability.

We understand the nature of Brisbane businesses and recognise the urgency many small businesses have in generating new leads or driving sales.

With our holistic understanding of business dynamics & marketing together… our team will get to work straight away on your campaign (having you onboard, with implementation often within a week of signing up).

Set aside any concerns about staying informed throughout your campaign – we keep you in the loop every step of the way, transparency is a core value of our business.

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.
