SEO Consultant Results for Clients

Most businesses and business owners can witness organic search traffic growth after a few months of SEO work. Moving keywords from page 5 of Google to page 2 looks great on a report, but does not generate new web traffic. Having keywords, with thousands of monthly searches or more, moving to page 1 of Google, Yahoo, and Bing’s search results will increase your web traffic. Below are two screenshots illustrating slow and steady organic traffic growth over time.

Heading over to the Case Study section provides greater detail on the work and results for many clients. The reviews are a mixture between SEO, PPC, and SEO coaching sessions. My longest active client is now approaching fifteen months of working together. As a note, TM Blast has been an official Boston SEO company for three years as of April 2020.


SEO Process Example

Recording videos help illustrate a before and after case study within SEO for my audience. YouTube is my primary channel for showcasing these SEO wins to potential clients. In this video above, I’m growing the traffic to a page after implementing a successful SEO strategy over a few months. The successful SEO strategy is for my niche website, The Stadium Reviews. Below is a video recapping my SEO performance for that niche website in 2019.



What Makes my Boston SEO Agency Unique?

SEO Overview

Three significant differences separate TM Blast from other SEO firms. First, I document every optimization, so you will know everything I’m working on for your account. Second, I optimize for core themes on your site that will increase your leads and revenue. An increase in leads and revenue is a result of getting to the first page of search engines. Third, all the work that I provide is done by myself, so there is no third-party.


What are the Themes?

Instead of fixing countless SEO issues on a site, I focus on improving topics or themes. Numerous SEO issues can include 404 errors, redirect chains, long title tags, fixing incorrect backlinks, cleaning dirty sitemaps, and more. Fixing these commons issues, while necessary, doesn’t always move the needle for a business regarding new leads and sales. Instead, I focus on theme optimization that can generate the most substantial ROI for your company from SEO.


For example, I’m working with a financial services company that offers four primary services to their clients. The four services include financial planning, financial retirement, 401k handling, and student loan payment plans. Each month, I’m optimizing those four core themes to increase their organic rankings and increase the lead generation through high-quality visitors. If a technical issue is present on a theme, I’ll include that within the optimization, but it’s about keeping a focus on the goal. Finally, I work with their email marketing and social media marketing team to drive new visitors to specific pages on their site to sign up potential customers.


Do I Only Perform SEO in Boston?

Speaking at local events in Boston about digital marketing, search engine marketing, and white hat SEO practices, I have a few local clients in the area. However, TM Blast has a robust national SEO presence and has clients who are outside the Boston Area. Some clients are looking for SEO help with their website design, SEO coaching, web development consultation, or help diagnosing an issue with their eCommerce website. Finally, Greg has a strong social media online presence on Reddit and answers marketing strategy questions from members around the world.


Do I work with Local Businesses?

I offer local SEO services to potential customers looking to increase their traffic through search. Having an SEO Expert update your map listings, fix critical technical errors, update the web design, and map out keywords can get you to the first page of Google. Local SEO can be a game changer for any business in a highly-competitive area, or even a small town in the United States. Finally, I offer the same high-quality marketing service to any business no matter how big or small they are.


Boston SEO Services at a High Level

When it comes to internet marketing, TM Blast initiates a 5-step process for all SEO contracts. Starting from a technical audit, we fix significant technical errors on the website that are restricting future growth. Next, competitor researching discovers keyword gaps and transition into keyword research. Once the analysis is complete, Greg optimizes specific keywords and intent for core theme pages. Finally, we review the results on a weekly / monthly basis and look for trends and or dips. 



TM Blast SEO Strategy and Process Cycle



What a Monthly SEO Report Looks Like for Clients

Each month, I create a custom SEO story for you and your team to review. Within the story, you will see traffic trends, analysis, and a moving forward section. The report is for you and your team to keep, but we can always go over the study together. Additionally, we can go over the findings over a phone call if that is necessary.



How Long Are Your SEO Contracts?

All SEO Contracts are monthly where either party can cancel with a 30-days notice. While SEO takes months to see traffic results, you should witness steady improvements and positive growth from me. As a client, you should know what I’m working on to improve your website. Also, you should know that if you are unhappy at any time, you can leave the contract with a 30-days notice. Additionally, I can exercise that right if I believe we are not the right working partners.


How Much Are Your Services?

SEO Coaching sessions are $200 an hour, while SEO Consulting is $1.4k per month.


Why SEO is Great for Your Business?

Google SERP Breakdown Between Clicks of Paid and Organic Results

The majority of clicks on Google go to an organic listing over a paid ad. Getting your business to the top of Google generates new visitors to your site consistently. Where in paid search you pay per click, organic results you don’t. In fact, you can maintain a top organic listing with proper SEO, which means cost-savings for a long time. While paid search is excellent in driving quality users to your site, you spend every time for that visit. Depending on your niche, you can spend anywhere between $1-$100 for a single visit to your website with ads.


The Tools I Use

SEMRush is the primary tool where I’m tracking keywords, reviewing health reports, and performing competitor research for clients. Screaming Frog crawls a website and helps discover major technical issues that SEMRush can’t find. Google Analytics is the main tracking tool to measure all performance for a website via traffic. Finally, we have Google Search Console and Bing Webmaster Tools. Both of these tools generate insight into how their search bot’s view a website and so much more. Additionally, I’m always testing out new SEO tools, so there may be new tools at my disposal for your contract.


What are Examples of SEO Best Practices?

Not only should you optimize your website for bots, but you should optimize for humans too. Google SEO best practices, in a nutshell, provide an excellent experience to bots and people. SEO best practices include optimizing page titles, meta tags, h1 tag, link building, footers, keywords, content, search engine rankings, and more. Also, optimizing links, images, load time, and more are great ways to improve your online marketing strategy.
