Small Business Marketing & Lynden WA SEO Service

We are a small Western Washington firm. We put together and promote websites for other small businesses in Whatcom County and Washington State.

What Do We Do For You?

Well, what we do is pretty simple — We promote your business on the Web.

Much of the time, our work involves promoting your business online, especially your website. But for companies that haven’t gotten a website up yet, we can still work to send them more new customers.

The marketing problem that many small businesses face is that not enough people know about that company’s services.

We change that. We work to increase the number of new, prospective customers that find out about your business.

Why Have Us Partner With You?

  • We’re local — Why work with a Big Vancouver or Seattle firm?
  • We’ll always tell you the straight truth.
  • We’ve got experience — we started doing this in 1999.
  • No contract to sign — you can pause or stop at any time.
  • We play it safe — no risky tactics.
  • Affordable rates — and you can pick your service level.
  • We treat your business just like it’s our business
  • Flexibility — change your monthly plan anytime you want to.

What Is It Going to Cost?

Most SEO companies ask for a high initial charge and a high monthly fee. We don’t have any set-up fees or a high monthly minimum for our services. We charge a simple per-hour fee.

You decide on the budget. You can even buy just one hour a month.

We will examine your business and prioritize what should be done. Then, we start with the most important duties on the list and work on getting them done.

You only pay for our work hours that are actually productive time spend working on your behalf. You don’t pay for administrative chores or phone time. After all, we’re not lawyers. You pay only for the work that actually produces results.

How Do Most WA SEO Services Work?

Most big Seattle and Vancouver SEO companies try to get a big chunk of change up front. And they try to secure as much money as they can for as many months as you can afford. Most of their deals have contracts. Many of them start out okay, but don’t work out too well. Most of those arrangements end as soon as the contract is up.

I’m not saying there is anything wrong with the standard way most SEO firms work. And I’m not saying those firms don’t do a good job.

I just think those types of plans don’t work for most small businesses.

Most small businesses would be better served by having a steady and affordable online marketing plan. This would be a plan that builds their business slowly and consistently. One that is easy to budget for. One that doesn’t cause a spike in costs or an unexpected, temporary spike in customer requests that they can’t be fulfilled.

A Little About My Background

Maybe you’re not interested, but back around 1999, I started building small websites and making money through online affiliate marketing.

Brian Hanson - Lynden SEO ExpertWhen you’re doing affiliate marketing, you need to generate a lot of Internet traffic, or you will go out of business in a big hurry.

Fortunately for myself, I figured out how to get lots of traffic.

Through building and testing lots of different websites every day, year after year, even a guy like myself ends up learning quite a bit.

While I still have my affiliate marketing business, these days I really like getting together with local business owners in order to improve their marketing strategy. To put it simply, I try to increase their online customer lead generation process.

The type of work I might do could include building a new main website; making a second complimentary website in order to multiply the number of new customers; or improving an existing website’s search engine rankings.

Let’s Talk About It

If your small business needs a website, I will build one.

I will build a simple and effective website that promotes your business’s key benefits and services and details why it makes sense to do business with you. This new website will attract and convert casual visitors into new clients or customers.

It will convince curious visitors to pick up the phone or send an email. Getting the phone call or email is the end goal of this new site.

Now if you already have a good site, you are a step ahead. We will help you get even more visitors to it.

Are you worried about black-hat tactics that Google will disapprove of? Don’t be. All of the online marketing and search engine optimization work we do only utilizes trusted and time-tested methods. We don’t do any risky stuff.

Some of the work we do might include website writing or editing, off-site article writing, citation authoring, review building, quality link building and company reputation.

Most likely, it’s possible that we can promote your business without actually needing to access or change your current website at all.

So if you already have a good working site, we can usually do all of our work without needing any access to your website at all. We won’t need to change anything about it. Our work will be focused on the outside elements that impact how your site ranks in the search engines.

This hands-off, off-page approach is probably all your site needs in order to rank better and attract more customers.

Lynden SEO Consultant

I suggest you take some time and look at your options before hiring any Western Washington SEO firm.

To be sure, there are some talented and fancy firms down in the Emerald City and up in Vancouver. But you may also end up talking with one or two that will take some unnecessary chances with your website. And they are more reckless with your site than what I am comfortable with.

Some of these firms use tactics and software tools that make me uneasy. The benefits of these risky tactics are almost always short-lived. Questionable tactics can end up harming your site and your long-term reputation with Google.

It isn’t worth it. You don’t want to risk your site’s reputation with Google. We don’t do it with ours.

We know your website and business are important to you. We don’t do any search engine optimization tactics that the search engines would ever frown upon.

We will give your site the same level of respect that we extend to our own sites.

Where Do We Work?

We are based just a bit west of Lynden in Ferndale, WA.

If it happens to be convenient for both of us, maybe we could get together (maybe at Wood’s) and talk about what’s going on with your business.

It’s not necessary we actually meet in person. We both know how to use phone and email. It works pretty good.

Get Good Search Engine Rankings

When a Whatcom County resident is on their phone or computer looking for a business that offers the kind of services you offer, you want to make sure your site is one of those sites that shows up on the first page of Google and Bing.

We’ve been doing this kind of work for over a decade. We’re pretty good at it.

No Need for a Contract

We don’t require you to sign a written contract. We think your handshake is good enough.

You are the boss. You choose the monthly budget that works for you. And you can change it at any time.

Here’s How it Works

We speak on the phone. We let you know what we can do. If we come to an agreement, we get to work trying to get your business more phone calls and leads.

And while we do your Web marketing chores, you simply concentrate on carrying out the main functions of your business. It’s that simple.

Remember, we will treat your site with the same care we use on our own sites.
