Chicago Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Services

Businesses today must find new ways to pull in potential customers and reach out to a wider audience. Having an organic search engine listing on Google, Yahoo! and Bing is a great way to fulfill this need. I offer to my clients a website solution built with SEO in mind. I will design the website around effective shopper/buyer keywords which will help to you reach out to your online customers.

It is far cheaper in the long run to have a naturally organic listing than pay per click advertising - but it does require patience on the part of the client because an organic listing can sometimes take a few months time before a break through and first page listing occurs. I have been studying search engine algorithms for over sixteen years and have written a book on the subject which can be bought from Amazon.com. The title of the book is: The Five Pillars of SEO. It describes that there are five main technical facets that drive the ranking decisions of sophisticated search engine algorithms such as Google which are: relevance, authority, site speed optimization, user experience design and security. I have used this system to great effect and impact on search engine rankings for my clients and they are extremely pleased with the results.

Chicago Pay Per Click (PPC) Services

I offer clients Pay Per Click (PPC) services that are focused on achieving maximum return on investment (ROI). I have great web analytics skills and years of experience managing large and small scale PPC campaigns. I have worked on PPC campaigns in the past with budgets as large as $500,000 a year. A good Google Adwords and Bing Ads campaign should be focused on factors which lower the cost per click (CPC) of each keyword while achieving a high level of customer conversions. On a successful PPC campaign ads should be run that achieve a high click through rate (CTR). The ad copy should be regularly tested to find which ads have a higher click through rate (CTR). When you achieve a high click through rate Google, Yahoo and Bing will lower the cost per click.

Regarding my largest PPC campaign, ultimately I saved the client $30,000 a month on PPC costs from their initial total budget of $60,000 a month while still achieving a high level of daily customer conversions.

Chicago Facebook Ads Administration

Facebook.com changed the landscape of online advertising forever in 2007 with their ground breaking ad platform which allowed for demographic targeting. Their ad platformed allowed ads to be shown to targeted ages, genders, incomes, and special interests. For instance, if you are an optical shop in Chicago and you want to run ads targeted to a group of people who had expressed interest in designer eyeglasses in Chicago than you could do this and also target it further to include their specific gender, age and income range. The other benefit of Facebook Ads is that the cost per click of their ads is significantly cheaper than Google’s AdWords platform. I encourage my clients in marketing to give Facebook Ads a try. With Facebook Ads as part of your digital marketing strategy you can really target the right audience and save on the cost per click in the process!
