  • Terrell Engle

    I was approached a couple of months ago with the idea of a new lead source for my plumbing company but instead of the normal SEO pitches I get from companies in South Africa, Craig was offering me calls.

    A few weeks after our first contact, I get an email sating we are ready to start and if I was still keen to work together, I said Yes and we agreed everything.

    Over the next few days I started to notice some call from areas I never used to get work and there were quite a few. This was fantastic 🙂

    I have been working with Craig now for almost 2 months and business is good.

    Thank you.

    I look forward to the new lead websites in other areas.

  • Candyce Wray

    Working with Craig and his team has been a pleasure. They have gone above and beyond my expectations. Best decision we made for the company.

  • Tom Henderson

    I have worked with an seo agency before who charged me an arm and a leg and my website did not move for 3 months. What a waste of money. Then I spoke with Craig and he spoke to me in a way that I understood what was going to happen and why it needed to happen to get my website to appear in Google. 4 months later I can not be happier. My business is doing very well and I am getting calls from customers daily. Highly recommended! Cheers

Frequently Asked Questions

How does online advertising work?

There are several different ways that you can advertise online. The two publishers that currently have the lion’s share of “eyeballs” are Google and Facebook. Google being the leader due to its Display, YouTube, Shopping, Gmail and of course Search Networks.

Both of these platforms run paid ads for advertisers based on a daily budget setup. You can drive people to a landing page with Google ads and Facebook ads. With Facebook ads, you also have the option of using a native Facebook lead form to obtain users contact details.

Online advertising campaigns are usually billed on a cost per click, cost per 1,000 impressions, or cost per view basis. Once your Daily budget runs out your ads stop running for the day.

You can also schedule and geographically target your ads online as well as track every Sale, Download or Enquiry. 

Does SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) really work?

The short answer is yes. Depending on your budget and the difficulty of the keywords you’re targeting the amount of time it will take varies. The organic section of Google is still the most clicked on section by far. In order to obtain decent rankings on Google for competitive searches, there are 3 main components that need to be worked on.

  • Onsite SEO. This includes Alt tags, Meta Tags, H1-H5 tags AND CONTENT. Site speed and specific coding techniques will also have a great impact on your rankings, traffic, leads and sales from Google.
  • Offsite SEO. Backlinks can be acquired by having content on your website that other websites link to and use as reference points in the content they are publishing. The other way is to purchase them. It is very rare for a website to have a high ranking on Google for a competitive keyword without having purchased backlinks.
  • Content. Although this was mentioned in the previous point, it’s worth mentioning again. Regularly and strategically publishing more content on your website will pull more visitors into your website and build your domain up as an authority on your targeted niche in the eyes of Google.

How much does online advertising cost?

Online Advertising comes in many different shapes and sizes. All different types of businesses advertise online. Targeting a small area for a local service provider will mean that the advertising budget will be less than an eCommerce site targeting nationally or internationally.

For most of the campaigns that we run the budgets start at $500 USD per month including media spend and management fees. Some of our larger clients spend anywhere up to $2000-$4500 per month. Regardless of the spending, there is only one thing that matters. From your advertising spend how much profit are you making back. We use watertight tracking for every enquiry or sale you get from the campaigns that we manage and work closely with you on determining the average cost per acquisition of a new customer.

We will carefully review your advertising investment against your average lifetime value (or average initial sale value) of a customer and accurately determine whether the campaign is profitable and by how much. A profitable Google, SEO or Facebook campaign does not actually cost anything. It makes you money! The correct question really is how much can you make from an online advertising campaign? The answer is, we have seen clients achieve over 10 X return on investment and even more.

What are digital marketing services?

A combination of web marketing services, like the following from Riley SEO, can help your business achieve extraordinary growth:

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Search Engine Marketing (SEM)
  • Website Strategy.
  • Social Media Marketing.
  • Email Outreach.
  • Re-targeting.
  • Content Generation and Optimization.
  • Quality Link Building.

How often should I update my website?

Websites that go for long periods with no updates and new content are unlikely to perform well or support any useful digital marketing objectives. Though a static website technically qualifies as a website it’s bound to be more than a digital brochure that produces little or no leads.

Do I really need a website?

Yes! Word of mouth can be great, but a majority of consumers find and research companies online before making any purchases. An online presence gives your company credibility and boosts brand awareness. Plus, websites are an avenue for endless marketing strategies, including e-commerce, online customer service, and consumer engagement.

How does a website increase sales?

The primary way a website increases sales is by offering users a convenient way to shop for products and services. Through the use of pop-ups offers and special online discounts, small businesses can encourage consumers to make the switch from window-shopping to buying.

With an enhanced incentive to buy, along with clear and concise product descriptions, users are quickly turning to company websites for all their consumer needs.

What is local SEO?

As compared to standard SEO, local SEO refers to Local Search Engine Optimization. Local SEO comes into play when users are searching for products, services, or resources near them in real-time.

For example, a search for “shoes” will yield greatly different results than a search for “shoes near me.” Local search often includes locations, which is why companies should keep their Google My Business profile up to date.

Is It Worth Hiring A Digital Marketing Agency?

Yes, hiring digital marketing services is worth the investment as it’s increasingly cost-effective, highly productive, and can help you acquire an unbiased perspective on things. Hiring an online advertising agency also gives you access to their marketing resources, knowledge trusted and test marketing strategies, and advanced technology.
