What is the difference between PPC and SEO?
PPC aka Pay-Per-Click is designed to drive website users to your site that is paid for. If for example you have seen on Google search something that says ‘ad’ next to it – if you click it, that is a PPC advertisement. SEO aka Search Engine Optimization is when you are getting users to your website  in an organic way. Your website blog has rich web content and users are finding your site via search, yet not on a PPC basis. PPC does not have a long lasting effect compared to SEO, since PPC is just an ad campaign.
Why is SEO important for every website?
SEO is important to your website because of the visibility and online presence that is required in today’s landscape. In other words if you have 50 websites that all do the same thing, what differentiator does your website have compared to others? Speed, Content, Structure – these are all very important to increase your search ranking. The higher you are in search, the less you are paying for external marketing.

Smaller projects at times can be delivered with two (2) weeks and larger website builds that are extremely complex can take much longer.

How long should an average blog post be?
You can ask 20 experts this question and you will most likely hear different answers. However, what everyone does agree on is ‘the more the better’. At a minimum we suggest 500 words and it is suggested for always aiming above 1000 words.
Do I need a professional website content creator or blogger?
A professional can help with many different aspects of blogging for your website. They can suggest topics, conduct research and more importantly make sure you are using proper key words (and meta-data).  Website content is a combination of SEO practices as well as being creative while being relevant (with your blog topics). If you have experience with writing and feel you can blog yourself – by all means you can give it a try.
What is SEO and what does it mean?
SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization. This helps optimize your website for specific keywords  – this is in part how someone is going to find you online.
How quick could I see website users from SEO results?
SEO takes time and patience. Its not a quick overnight success. Anyone that tells you that you can expect to see results within a short period of time is lying to you. Results from SEO can take months and the amount of efforts invested can also have an effect on expectations. For example, someone who is posting 1 blog post per week cannot expect to have the same results as someone who is adding 5 blogs per week to their website. Blogging should be part of any businesses marketing efforts and should be posting on a weekly basis.
Do you invest money in your clients companies?
We do not invest in any of our client’s ventures.  Our position is we are available on a ‘for hire’ basis.
