Hi Hal,

I thought I would put this together to better explain what I feel still needs to be done, and my recommendations. Also why the added expense.

I know we wanted to drop it down to $750 but there is still a lot of hours to put in to keep the Momentum going.

I feel bad for Julie, this stuff takes years and years to learn and grasp so I feel bad throwing all these terms at her because its a lot to understand.



Here are Biggest Issues:

First Awesome news 🙂 Last Month There were Zero keyword rankings, Right Now we moved into the MAPS with 2 Keywords BUT…. At the very bottom of the Results.

You should be Raking in the Top 3 of Google MAPS:

I need to do a More Comprehensive Round of Keyword Research. Thorough research to identify industry-specific keywords local prospect use to find your services. Localized search terms to capture users at the point of decision-making. 

I want to start getting you ranking for keywords like:

  • Contractors near me
  • Construction companies near me
  • Local contractors
  • Remodeling companies near me
  • Renovation companies near me
  • Bathroom remodeling
  • Kitchen remodeling
    Etc…. Etc… Etc…….

IMPORTANT –> We Need a Lot More Local Citations

As well as:

Link Building:

  • Acquiring high-quality backlinks from reputable and relevant websites in your industry.

  • Guest posting on authoritative blogs and websites to earn backlinks.

  • Internal linking within your website to improve navigation and user experience.

Social Bookmarking:

  • Submit your MAPS Listing to social bookmarking websites to increase visibility, increase Rankings, and drive traffic

A Review System Set Up For Google and Your New Website.

We won’t be able to beat out the competition without Reviews. A lot of the Local Competition uses this to their benefit.

I can’t recommend this enough… So Important for Social Proof.

With all this in place your phone will 110% be ringing 🙂

 

There are a couple of options:

  1. We keep the momentum going full blast for another month at $1450 Get those rankings set up to enter into the Maps

     

  2. We stay at the $750. My time would limited on what I can spend per week on this. It will just prolong the process (MAPS and SEO are really a 3-6 month event… It’s crazy, I know ugh…

I know I mentioned originally that SEO MAPS takes 3 to 6 Months to even start moving so we made good headway – it definitely a process and a necessary evil.
