Research & Development

Your Kansas City small business can't afford a marketing partner who tells you how to run your business. You need a marketing partner who gets your business goals and applies their skill set to grow your brand. That's what we do with our R&D.

See Everything All The Time

We hear from a lot of prospects that their former SEO agency simply didn't talk to them enough, show them enough or care about them enough. We know that white hat SEO work is one thing but making sure our clients understand it is another. We excel at both.

Geek Speak + Customer Service

How do we maintain clients for 4X the industry average? We connect to our clients. You're not just a number here and we always put your profits before our own.

Results In Months

SEO isn't a mechanism to double your profits in a couple of months but it certainly is the most affordable solution to help you not just this year but for years to come and many of our clients report record breaking sales months in their second year with us.

“If you give them a direction to go in, they’ll run with it. They’re not like other agencies that only do as they’re told.”

Pro Roller had a dated website that had never seen more than 2000 visitors in a year from Google. Agency Jet got to work and within one year they saw 96% growth in organic traffic. The following year they had over 12,500 new organic visitors land on their site. How? High quality SEO, of course.

Our work. Your ownership.

It's insane to us how many of our clients who've come from other agencies report losing all the work the former agency did simply because they left. Everything we create is owned by you, so if you end a contract with us, you don't have to worry about losing all that great work.

Ethical and honest

We tell clients right away that there's no secret sauce to getting found in Google—just hard work. We include you in that work so you see everything—good or bad—and make sure we over-communicate to keep all parties on the same page.

Educational always

There's a ton of geek speak in this industry but we never talk over our clients. Our goal is for every client to learn enough that they could do SEO themselves.

Answers to Questions About

Hiring An SEO Company

Does SEO really work?

To get your business seen by potential clients, search engines like Google can be one of the best ways to achieve lasting results. What do you do when you need to find a specific product or service? Go to Google, right? Your potential customers do the same thing. According to a study done by HubSpot, 57 percent of B2B marketers claim that SEO generates more leads than any other form of marketing. Because most search engine leads close at 14.6 percent, SEO is the clear winner compared to traditional marketing (1.7 percent close rate) when it comes to ROI.

How long does SEO take?

Kansas City SEO for Small Business doesn't produce immediate page one results in Google. When you're doing ethical SEO, you're taking measures to market your business in a way that search engines approve of, and you need to put in consistent effort every month. Most campaigns tend to experience growth trends within a couple of months, with most of them seeing lead and sales increases after 8 months of SEO efforts.

If you invest in it for several months (better years), you should expect returns of 2 to 10 times on your initial investment. Because white hat SEO is so effective, even if you disable the work, you'll probably see positive results for several months after. We don't recommend turning off SEO activities however, because it can have long-term advantages for an extremely affordable price.

Is the SEO industry dying out?

Not even close. The old way of thinking about SEO (emphasizing volume over quality) is outdated. Years ago, you could just produce more content to get ranked by Google. White hat SEO has become an important part of digital marketing and the industry is now worth billions of dollars. Black hat SEO is no longer effective. There are over 37,000 SEO companies in America alone so the industry isn't dead; it's growing everyday.

What does SEO look like in 2022 and beyond?

For years, you’ve needed solid technical SEO, high-quality content creation, and a great user experience on your website to rank well. By 2022, 2023 and beyond, these trends are going to be even more relevant than present day. It's no longer possible to trick Google with shoddy techniques and the best way to rank well is by keeping the end-user in mind at all times. Your website needs to be fast, unique, and explain why the products and services are helpful to the user. It also needs to have high quality content, be easy to use, and be linked to by high authority sites to boost its reputation.

How do you make sure you choose a good SEO company?

Finding an SEO agency that fits perfectly isn’t easy but finding an SEO agency that fits your exact needs and provides full transparency and educates you every single step of the way on exactly how their process works is key to finding success. Most agencies can get results for you but few will take the extra time to treat you like an actual human being. Make sure you're partnering with an SEO expert and not just hiring an SEO service provider.

What does small business SEO cost to get started?

There are no regulations regarding the cost of SEO services for small business. You could get quotes for SEO services from companies charging over $10,000 per month and under $200 per month. If your business is small, working with a reputable company should probably cost between $1,500 and $5,000 per month. We customize all plans according to your specific needs, so please contact us if you want to discuss prices.

What are red flags I should look for when talking to an SEO company?

If you're talking to a lot of agencies to decide who should get your business, here are some red flags to look out for:

  • They won't tell you if you own their work or not. Work shouldn't be dependent on contracts. If you leave, the work should remain.
  • They guarantee exactly where you'll rank in Google. No agency is Google. We're all subject to their algorithm changes. Therefore, if an agency is saying you'll rank #1 in Google, they are making a promise they might not be able to keep.
  • You can't get them on a phone or they won't email you back. You're spending thousands of dollars a month. They better be responding to you in a reasonable amount of time.
  • They don't show you all of the work. Many agencies hide behind the idea that their clients won't understand the technical stuff, therefore they don't have to show it to them. It's a red flag because you'll never truly know what they're doing on behalf of your brand unless you see it.

Why hire a local SEO company versus doing it myself?

An SEO agency isn’t there to cause headaches for your business; they’re there to help you avoid headaches. If you don't know what to do, trying to do SEO yourself can be even more harmful than doing nothing at all! If you don't have any experience or if you don't want to spend the time learning SEO, then you shouldn't be trying to do it yourself.

Why hire an SEO company versus a marketing employee?

Marketing employees can certainly assist you with improving your SEO, but the primary reason for outsourcing your SEO efforts is because it will be simpler. It's also way more affordable for a small business. A seasoned marketer earns an average annual salary between $50,000 and $60,000 plus you'll have to provide them a computer and other equipment; pay for their benefits, vacation, and sick days, and so on. An SEO agency typically runs from $1,800 to $5,000 per month (on average). They don't require training in the field, no vacation, no special equipment, and they guarantee their results.
