Would you like to improve your online presence by utilizing Google-friendly search engine optimization (SEO) and pay-per-click (PPC) advertising techniques to rank higher in search results and bring more customers to your website and your business?

Consider that I'm just one individual with a small marketing budget, yet by employing Google-friendly SEO techniques, my business appears at or near the top of many search results in both Google and Yelp, and as a result I have more clients - and better reviews - than most in my field.

I can do the same for your business. If you're interested in growing and improving your online presence, please feel free to contact me for a complimentary phone consultation and analysis of your site's SEO, as well as other aspects of your online presence.

Avoiding the SEO Scams

Many SEO companies and individuals claim to do good work and promise a lofty first-page position for your website in Google organic search results. Such claims typically are intended only to separate you from your money. Nobody can legitimately promise or guarantee specific results. And paying more doesn't mean you receive better results ... in fact, many people spend small fortunes for SEO and receive virtually no results at all. Keep in mind that Google rewards effort, not amount of money spent.

Have you noticed how many SEO companies claim to be #1 on their websites and in their advertising? Yet their only customer reviews are on their own sites. If a business is really good, they want you to read what their clients say about them on independent review sites such as Google Reviews and Yelp. But many SEO companies deliberately avoid having listings on those sites because they don't want you to know what their actual clients really think of them.

Many of my SEO clients come to me because they're looking for someone good, honest, and ethical after being cheated out of their of money by one or more SEO "experts" who either vastly overcharge (often to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars annually!), or use enticing lowball pricing techniques. In either scenario, little or no actual SEO is performed, resulting in nothing for their trusting, paying clients.

I can help you with better SEO than others who charge far more. How is that possible? The simple answer is that good, Google-friendly SEO is a product of knowledge, effort, and playing by the rules. You can spend bazillions of dollars on SEO, or you can spend a fraction of that and receive even greater benefit from Google. It's a level playing field, which means that Google rewards quality of effort, not quantity of money spent.

Your website doesn't have to be fancy or flashy in order to rank highly; in fact, Google strongly favors substance over style. The process requires work, understanding, and patience. The objective is to build a broad, positive Internet presence that brings customers to your website and to your business.

My fees typically vary from $500 to $5,000 depending upon the type and complexity of the work involved. Some forms of SEO are simpler than others, so please feel free to openly discuss pricing with me. I can do your SEO and Internet Marketing for you or - if you prefer - teach you how to do your own. Either way, you always know exactly what's occurring with your SEO efforts, and precisely how your money's being spent.


Unlike many others, I don't promise or guarantee specific SEO results (for example, "guaranteed first page of Google"). That would be unethical, misleading, and a disservice to you. What I can tell you is that the Internet presence of your website and your business will improve significantly (unless it's already at or near the top, in which case you might not need better SEO, although your site and its online presence might benefit from some good analysis and improvement in other areas).


So whether your website and your business need effective Google-friendly SEO, or your present online efforts leave something to be desired, give me a call. I can help provide you with a nice boost.


We meet wherever you prefer ... your home, your place of business, my home, or any location that's convenient for you, including public libraries and coffee shops ... even over the phone with secure screen sharing. I'm available weekdays and weekends, including evenings.

I can provide many exceptional references, recommendations, and reviews attesting to the quality of my work. (I think my clients say it best ... please read the reviews I receive on Google and Yelp.)


Feel welcome to contact me at your convenience for a complimentary, no-obligation phone consultation to discuss your individual needs and goals.

Thanks for your interest ... I look forward to working with you.
