Freelance SEO Consultant

I am a freelance SEO Consultant, with six years solid SEO experience, striving always to achieve the best possible search results for your products and services. This drives targeted sales and enquiries on your web site, growing your business and boosting your bottom line.

Note, I say “products and services”. Anyone can rank a web site for your business name or brand, but that is not what potential customers are searching for in Google, Bing and Yahoo, unless of course you are already a big, well known brand. People are searching for items for sale or services that they require; this is how 89% of customers begin the buying process.

SEO Agency v Freelance SEO

I don’t run a SEO agency. I have worked for SEO agencies, for over two years, a few years ago, looking after many clients (over 40 at a time!) on behalf of the agency. My experience is that you have very little time to work on client SEO campaigns and clients are passed from one SEO consultant to another as staff turnover and move on. I found this very frustrating. Now I do the same job, but looking after a small number of customers, only now I can dedicate the time needed to each customer campaign.

If you engage me to look after your SEO campaign, I have the flexibility to dedicate enough time to supporting your business that it needs. It will always be me that looks after your online marketing campaign, as I do not outsource any work.

I Get Results for My Clients

Achieving good, targeted, search engine rankings, that ultimately drive enquiries and sales is the goal of any organic SEO campaign.

Done correctly this does take time, but once established, your business will reap the benefits for years to come. Done incorrectly, too quickly and unethically will most likely lead to your web site being penalised by Google, causing long term damage to your business in the process.

SEO is an Investment not a Quick Fix

Organic SEO is the most cost effective marketing channel.

Viv’s levels of knowledge in this specialist field are quite extraordinary and her fees represent the best investment that we will probably make.” Richard AB Saville, Senior Partner, Corporate Financial Solutions

SEO needs to be viewed as an investment, it takes time to mature, but once it is working it will support your business long into the future. Compared to paid search and paid advertising, the returns on SEO spend will keep on increasing over time.

Based in Rugby, Warwickshire, Helping Businesses UK Wide

Although I deliver SEO consultancy from my base in Rugby, Warwickshire, the nature of the work, means that it can be carried out remotely, apart from attending client meetings.

What My Clients Say

"We were first introduced to Viv shortly after setting up our own practice. We had initially attempted to build our own web site although it was soon clear from the poor rankings that we needed some serious professional help. Viv kindly agreed to take us on and within a matter of only a few days we had moved to page one of Google, without expending anything on Google advertising. Since then Viv has been instrumental in developing the website further, such that we are now receiving email enquiries and calls on a daily basis. Viv’s level of knowledge in this specialist field are quite extraordinary and her fees represent the best investment that we will probably make." Richard AB Saville, Senior Partner, Corporate Financial Solutions

No job is to big or to small for Viv, she has successfully looked after a range of different marketing campaigns for our agency ranging from clients spending £350 per month looking to rank locally to national ecommerce clients turning over hundreds of thousands of pounds per month. I am pleased to say that under Viv’s consultancy we have a 100% retention & satisfaction record with all of our marketing clients, I put this down to her ability to go the extra mile.
