SEO Redditch

- when you want it

- how you want it

For almost all of Ready Steady Go SEO's story, Midlands SEO has been at the centre of my SEO activities. This was due to the company having a Birmingham base -however, it was in actual fact just on the Worcestershire border. This meant that a large number of clients I've worked with have been in and around the Worcestershire area. My name's Guy Willett and  I've been working in digital marketing for over 15 years and I'm the founder of Ready Steady Go SEO. Since starting the company in 2016  I have made it my mission to provide cost effective SEO to SMEs. So if you're looking at Redditch SEO services on a pay as you go basis then allow me to elaborate why I think we should be talking.

So why choose Ready Steady Go SEO to be your SEO service provider? Well, the key difference is that I undertake search engine optimisation very differently to most SEO agencies you'll encounter. Why? Well, the simple answer is I don't come from an agency background.

In fact, for many years I was, like you, an end client, who just didn't get value for money from the SEO agencies I hired. All too often I was locked into contracts where very little seemed to be done and even less seemed to happen in terms of results. When I questioned this, I'd frequently be met with a wall of techno babble or just told that I'd just need to wait just a little longer to see results. 

Which made me think. 

  • Why can't I get SEO services when I want them or when I can afford it?
  • Why can't I obtain SEO services where I know what's being done and how it will benefit me?
  • Why can't I buy individual SEO packages where I can judge their impact prior to further expense?

That's when I started undertaking SEO for my own companies and not only got some great results but also really enjoyed doing it. So much so that after a few years I decided to become a freelance SEO consultant who has in the last four years worked with over 75 organisations improving their online visibility. 

The reason for this success is simple:

I consult with you to understand your short & longer term goals

I then give you a plan with separate SEO projects in this plan

You choose as and when you want the work done to suit you

So what makes your Redditch SEO services so different?

No contracts or retainers

Since work is done on a project by project basis you choose to work with me as and when you want. You're not committed to using me in anyway beyond the current project I'm working on for you. This means I have to deliver value EVERY SINGLE TIME. Additionally, it means I'm always looking at what value I can deliver for you in future projects we discuss.

Single point of contact

No Account Managers, just the same person you meet is the same person who will carry out the work for you. So there's no layers of communication for misunderstandings to arise or an aptitude gap between who you speak with and who undertakes the work.

Transparent operation

Working with you on a project basis means that there is clarity in why I'm doing the work and the anticipated results. This way, there aren't any unexpected surprises and I'll report back to you with results throughout the project.

Quick wins & long term goals

It's fair to say that the overall process of search engine optimisation is a long term and ideally on-going activity but certain SEO activities can have a lot quicker impact than others. For instance, you can see the impact of the on-page optimisation of title tags, metadescriptions and header titles in a matter of days or even hours depending on when your site is next indexed by Google. However, the impact of backlinks can take many weeks or even months for their full benefit to be felt.

White hat SEO adherence

I adhere to Google's webmaster approved white hat ethical guidelines so you can be confident that the risk of receiving a Google penalty, or future penalty, has been minimised.

SMEs a speciality

The majority of my career has been spent working in SME environments which has given me a good understanding of both the drivers and constraints that your typical SME faces. That's why my SEO services are geared towards

  • working within tight budgetary constraints,
  • showing a quick ROI
  • as little financial commitment as possible
All work done in-house

No work is farmed out to third parties so I have complete control, and responsibility, for the SEO projects I undertake for you. In addition, this also means I that all the work undertaken is entirely your property.

Competitively priced

Since I offer project based SEO services I charge a day rate and this day rate can be broken down to the activity undertaken by the hour if needed. The difference between this approach and an on-going, possibly cheaper cost in the short term, is you know what work is being done which can be demonstrated. However, you'll always find cheaper SEO providers than Ready Steady Go SEO but I'm confident you won't find better value for money or ROI

Techno babble free zone

I speak your language because I come from a client and not an agency background. I take pride in and enjoy spending the time with clients explaining the concepts and scope of work so there is a clarity in their understanding and expectations. I've never hidden behind the 'I could explain it to you but you wouldn't understand' smokescreen you may have encountered with other SEO providers.

Redditch SEO that's highly rated!

I'd urge anyone to scrutinise and research your prospective SEO provider before taking the plunge. By all means, ask for references and approach former or current clients to get their feedback.

Of course, also look at their online reputation as well  I'm very proud of the feedback that I've received setting up Ready Steady Go SEO and feel free to look across GoogleMyBusiness, Bark, Yell, Bark or Trustpilot to see how people feel about the work undertaken and advice given. See below for just a sample of the feedback I've received.

One particular review platform I'm proud to be featured on is Clutch. This isn't just because of the glowing reviews but also because clients are approached and are interviewed independently so their feedback is all the more impartial and welcome.

Moreover, from this independent research, Ready Steady Go SEO has been named as one of the top digital and marketing agencies in the UK three years in a row.

An experienced Redditch SEO specialist

The West Midlands and Worcestershire have been the main areas that I've had the pleasure of serving for the past 4 years. This has involved me working extensively in the centre of Redditch as well as for a number of clients who are situated just outside of Redditch.

The range of work has been very diverse including -

  • occasion card printers in Greenlands, Redditch
  • carpet cleaners in Hunt End, Redditch
  • marketing agency in Greenlands, Redditch
  • chartered surveyors in Bromsgrove town centre
  • chartered accountants in Alvechurch

Benchmark your competitors with your free SEO report!

I believe in helping you to make informed strategic SEO decisions. Its vital that reflecting my findings with you at each step helps ensure continued success and no more so then at the outset of our communication. 

This starts even before working with you with a free no-obligation SEO report and 30 minute consultation that focuses on:

  • Current keyword ranking
  • Potential other keywords 
  • Average monthly search volumes
  • Your backlink profile (mentions of your site elsewhere on the Internet)
  • Analysis of your local listing status
  • Social media profiles

What makes this an even more valuable document however is I can share the same information for your competitor's too which can give insights into new keywords, backlinks and overall strategy that you might wish to adopt.

Additionally included in the report

Conversion Rate Optimization

Discover if you're ranking for keywords that you're not leveraginig that might not be exploited

Timings to see ranking changes depend on the SEO service

Ensure you understand the activities being undertaken

Beware agencies not prepared to explain what they intend to do

SEO takes ages right? Think again!

Well yes and no. It's my experience that a lot of SEO agencies want you to believe this since it means they can expect you to continue paying over a long period of time without expecting any results. The truth of the matter is that different SEO activities have different timescales to have an effect. For instance, on-page optimisation can have a ranking impact within the time it takes for your site to be re-indexed by Goolge, as little as 48-72 hours, if not sooner!

Other activitites, say backlinking, can take many weeks if not months for their impact to be wholly felt since the age of the backlink is an important factor. So let's be clear, depending on the SEO activity being undertaken should have an impact on timescale for you to expect results. 

One important consideration however is you may get ranking improvements from entirely unethical 'black hat' techniques' that may also get results for you fast but may likely be unsustainable and more importantly leave you at risk of receive hugely rank damaging Google penalties. This then makes it all the more important to understand what SEO services are being undertaken on your behalf.

Need more than just SEO?

There's a lot more to digital marketing than just cost effective search engine optimisation services. It's worthwhile having a look at your other digital assets that might be already being used or possibly never considered. Every client has their own preferences and prejudices so it's well worth looking into how these channels may play their part in your overall digital marketing mix.

Let's start the conversation

I'd love to hear from you and if you want to take me up on your free no-obligation SEO audit I'll just need you to tell me three points in the notes section:

  • Your core serives/products/keywords you're looking to rank for
  • The regions/countries/markets/audiences you're looking to appeal to
  • Three competitor websites that you think might be performing better than you

Is it important to work with an SEO who knows Redditch?

Have you chosen an accountant that you've never met? I'm guessing not. I'm assuming you decided you decided your financial well-being was a crucial aspect to your business. I'm also guessing that you wanted to seek regular advice and wanted to enter into a regular dialogue about ever-changing financial legislation and its impact on you. 

So if I told you your very existence online might be dependent on your selection of SEO then you might want to consider much the same level of intimacy. As opposed to relying on a faceless organisation who you have barely spoken to let alone meet! This is why I'm hugely keen on working with local SMEs who I can build long-lasting relationships that start with a face to face meetings. Why a face to face meeting? You can learn so much more whether your offering is a good fit and vice versa. 

Moreover, SEO isn't just being told by a client what they want to rank for. It's a lot more involved process that gets to the core of actually what it is that you do, understanding how your audiences get to become your clients and also what your long term goals are. 

Additionally, having an SEO that understands your sector can be highly beneficial in having an understanding of the keywords that might help along with some of the trade press that you might want to consider getting backlinks to. Much the same can also be said for an SEO who understands your locale since they may have a good understanding of the surrounding areas that you might wish to target with geo-specific keywords and also possibly an understanding of local directory listings that you should target. 

Finally, much like the world of finance, Google's algorithm is subject to change at an even faster speed. This is why I like to regularly meet with my clients to keep them abreast and brainstorm how these changes can be accommodated and leveraged.

So if you'd like to meet up for a coffee, I'm only 30 minutes drive away, and for me to provide you with a free consultation and SEO report (including competitor analysis) then I look forward to meeting up

I believe in strong, close working relationships

Your online reputation is too important to risk

Don't rely on a faceless organisation
