Do you agree that SEO is an important marketing channel that takes time?

Would you like to invest in monthly SEO services that can generate qualified leads via Google search?

Now you can collaborate with a reliable SEO consultant who offers customized and comprehensive monthly SEO packages for small to medium brick-and-mortar and online businesses.

What are monthly SEO packages and how they can help your business?

Monthly SEO packages are retainer packages for SEO services, for the tasks and project scope defined upfront, and the budget is usually agreed upon in advance. Usually, the SEO packages recur each month, encompassing the task defined and a monthly report. 

The idea behind monthly SEO services is that, if someone works on your site continuously, then it can yield ongoing SEO results as well, and the visibility can have a steady growth. Also, by hiring someone on an ongoing basis, that person familiarizes with the site and knows exactly what are the weak spots that require additional SEO attention. 

Usually, the best way to look at SEO is like an ongoing investment that can pay off in the long term. Therefore, investing in monthly SEO packages can be a wise choice for your business. The game of SEO is not a game of quick wins (excluding the cases if you’re not in a competitive market, but it’s rare), but requires constant dedication, research, testing of new approaches, and optimization. That’s where Digital Search Hero jumps in. We offer customized ongoing SEO services you can choose from.

What is my working process?

How do we analyse your company from an SEO perspective? Usually, we start with a complete SEO audit, to get an overview of:

  • Technical website issues, 
  • Content and on-page SEO factors,
  • Competitors, 
  • Current traffic and keyword rankings,
  • Website topical authority,
  • External authority signals such as backlinks and citations.

Then, based on the insights we have gathered, we define priority SEO strategies and main activities to perform. After that, we start implementing it, by constantly tweaking the SEO results and progress, and doing all ongoing necessary SEO activities to help your website flourish in Google Search. We usually combine content and on-page SEO efforts, increasing EAT of the website, creating keyword and content strategies for bigger topical authority, and performing constant technical SEO tweaks to help Google understand your content and intent better.

Sonja is very professional not only in terms of SEO but also in terms of WordPress, site structure, google analytics, and all other SEO tools. She created a very useful audit presentation that included not only the current results of my site but also concrete suggestions for improvements that were very understandable and realistic. I recommend Sonja to anyone who needs concrete and applicable approaches in improving SEO for their website.

How to choose your SEO package?

Choosing the right SEO package for you is a process consisting of a few phases. Firstly, identify what your disposable monthly SEO budget is and if you need monthly SEO packages in the first place. Then, figure out the SEO activities you’d like to outsource, and what results from your plan to achieve. Research the available options, consulting numerous resources, to increase your chances to find the most suitable package for you. Define whether you need a comprehensive, all-inclusive SEO package, or more like a basic one. Also, think about your ideal audience – it is based locally or nationwide? If your audience is local, then choosing an SEO package with a strong focus on local SEO might be your right choice. In choosing your ideal SEO agency or an independent SEO professional – chose the one that speaks to you, and showcases decent skills, portfolio and experience.

Beating the common myths of monthly SEO packages

The SEO industry is filled with myths, and some of them are unfortunately still very active. In some cases, clients might have great expectations, as there are some service providers who make bold promises. The result is that it’s sometimes common to think that SEO is a quick hack that can generate overnight success, a hack that only a few can get right. However, it’s not the case, and here are some popular SEO myths regarding the monthly services:

Promising instant ranking

SEO is a long-term investment, not a quick overnight win, so, it’s impossible to make an overnight success. In the millions of websites currently available in the Google search, Googlebot needs some time to crawl the changes on the site, and working on a website authority is a long-term activity.

Cheap SEO packages are the best

Cheap SEO can work to some extent, and it doesn’t mean that cheap SEO consultants don’t know their job. However, do not let the price be your only decision maker.

Black hat or obsolete tactics

Google is becoming smarter in recognizing these tactics, so anyone who promises you to be able to scam Google will only scam your website.

Frequently Asked Questions

What strategies do you use?

I use only white-hat, proven and ethical SEO strategies, based on natural authority increase through content, keywords, strategy, internal linking, website structure and resolving possible technical issues. I don’t involve spammy or shady practices, and my clients managed to rank even without aggressive backlink campaigns.

What are the average costs of SEO packages?

The cost topic of SEO packages is a wide and diverse one. While you can find low-cost SEO monthly packages starting as low as $200, I always recommend you invest in more comprehensive packages offered by reliable agencies and SEO professionals. Usually, SEO packages for small businesses can start at $500, offering some partial SEO done, such as on-page SEO, SEO copywriting, or SEO content strategy. For a more comprehensive package, the cost can go from $1000 and up. If you want to outsource all your SEO strategy, research, implementation and reporting, the prices can go above $2000 per month.

How long until we rank at the top?

No one can reply to that question, as each industry is different, and there is also a different severity of competitors. Usually, for some visible results, it takes from 6 months to one year of constant SEO efforts. Also, website authority building is a steady process that takes time. However, first marginal results such as increased rankings of some keywords can appear after one month.

What type of results I can expect with your SEO packages?

My main goal is to help you get more organic visibility and quality leads and conversions from Google. To do that, with these monthly packages, I continually work on increasing your website’s topic authority and suggest new attractive content topics that can connect you with your target audience in different stages of a buying journey. My work helps you that both search engines and users recognized your website as an authority in your niche, which will help you get more inquiries and leads. I come with the notion that ranking is important, but not all keywords are equal. I detect the most suitable keywords for your business and create a strategy on how to rank on the first page of Google in time.

Are your SEO packages customized?

Yes, packages can be customized to match the needs of your business. For some industries, it’s enough to do quick on-page and technical website tweaks on one side, and basic SEO copywriting to make the needle move. In other, more competitive industries, it’s usually a long-term process, and the SEO package needs to be more comprehensive for better SEO results.

How will the communication and reporting go?

The communication is ongoing, open, transparent, and as frequent as you need. At the end of the month, I send you the report, with an overview of the results and what has been done. I explain my strategies in detail and why it matters to SEO. We can communicate via emails or can organize online meetings, and I’ll be there to reply to all your concerns and questions, as I want you to know that your investment is in safe hands.

What is the difference between hourly, project-based and ongoing SEO packages?

The essence of ongoing SEO packages is that the SEO services are renewed on a monthly basis unless they are discontinued at one point. It means monthly invoicing from the SEO agency side, and providing monthly SEO services that are pre-defined. Usually, there is a certain commitment from both parties in the agreement: agencies make sure to provide results and do monthly reporting and regular SEO work, while on the other side, clients need to pay their monthly invoices and provide necessary information or feedback.

On the other side, hourly SEO services are usually short-term, with services billed hourly. The workload is usually hard to define in advance, and the contract can last from a day or two, up to one year, or even more. The main difference between hourly SEO packages is that the workload isn’t previously defined, and the among of work can vary greatly. It’s a quite flexible agreement from which both parties can benefit. Freelancers have an additional source of income without much obligation, while clients get their SEO tasks done when they need it.

And finally, project-based SEO packages have defined clear time frames, the scope of work and budget. Usually, the project goal would be to solve a specific SEO issue, or to help with a specific part of SEO, like audits, technical SEO fixes, content strategy, setting up a permalink structure, adding sitemaps, GSC or GA, or keyword research. The project-based package can also be renewed, but it’s more an exception than a regular practice.
