Feel free to drop in to say hi

We understand the Newcastle market really well and can quickly identify the where your competition is weak and where the most valuable places are to focus to ensure your SEO efforts deliver value.

That said, we can certainly help if you’re located somewhere else, just let us know.

We primarily help service businesses like cleaners, tradesman and accountants. But any business that provides services as opposed to selling products is where our expertise can help.

The cost of local SEO services in the Newcastle market range between $300 and $2000 per month depending on the level of competition in the area and the services you’ll need to compete.

For example, if you only have 5 competitors in Newcastle and their SEO optimisation is quite weak, it’ll be on the lower end of that scale.

The very first thing we recommend is to establish a good customer review process.

Customer reviews are an important factor when it comes to ranking well and winning customers in your local area. If you start early, you’ll be really well positioned to rank well when you do have a budget for a more holistic SEO approach.

We’ve developed a customer review automation platform called Get Service Reviews that automates this process for you from just $19 / month.

Depending on what they do for you, we may not be much different. But it’s important to really understand what they could be doing for you, and what they actually are doing for you.

It’s very easy to think that local SEO is a single activity, like running Facebook Ads or Social Media posting, but it’s much more complex.

If you’re not sure what they do, just ask and make sure you’re holding them accountable for their performance.

As far as we go, we pride ourselves in always going the extra mile to really understand your business and execute a strategy that makes sense for your situation. And to ensure we’re holding ourselves accountable, we provide in-depth reporting and regularly touch base with our clients to ensure they’re also across their SEO performance.
