Organic Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

SideKick Mark implements a 10 step marketing approach designed to help your website receive top ranking within search engines and enhance the visibility of your website online.

Research Process

1st Step – Learning About Your Business

We have an initial consultation with you and/or your staff to allow us to better understand your business and projected marketing goals.  Our consultation will focus on:

– Overview of Your Business
– Your Business Goals
– Goals for Your Online Marketing
– Overview of Your Key Competitors

2nd Step – Website Analysis

– We analyze your existing website (if you have a site) to determine its overall search engine friendliness including structure, navigation and current content.

– We analyze your website’s current search engine positioning to help us determine key strategies for your marketing goals.

3rd Step – Competitive Analysis

We take a detailed analysis of your top known competitors and formulate a strategic plan to achieve first page rankings on Google, Bing and Yahoo above your competitors within search engine results.  Successful online marketing requires a thorough understanding of your competition to create a winning search engine optimization strategy for your online marketing campaign.

4th Step – Keyword Research

Selecting the correct keyword phrases (search terms) targeted for your online campaign is one of the most important elements for achieving online success.  Targeting keyword phrases that are too broad and have too much competition can result in greatly delaying or reducing the success of your online marketing efforts.  Targeting irrelevant or rarely searched keyword phrases may achieve you top ranking in search engines, but still result in poor online sales performance. Carefully chosen keyword phrases will ensure your marketing dollars are used wisely and increase your online business performance directly inline with your marketing goals.

Our keyword research team will perform a comprehensive analysis for your online campaign.  This detailed report will showcase our keyword phrase recommendations that we suggest implementing for your online marketing campaign.  The final keyword phrases are reviewed and will be mutually agreed upon.

Online Marketing Process

Obtaining and sustaining top online search rankings requires continuous marketing efforts to keep up with the constantly changing search engine ranking algorithms to ensure that your site is always staying ahead of your competition’s online marketing efforts.

8th Step – Targeted Link Building

Link building involves the process of obtaining incoming links to your site from a large variety of sources on the Internet.  Links are viewed by search engines like a vote in a public election.  The more votes (links) your site has; the higher it will rank in search engine results.

All link building is done manually to comply with all spamming guidelines and prevent from receiving potentially any negative penalties against your website from the major search engines. This “white hat” approach will provide your website with lasting results that will have a positive impact on your marketing efforts for years to come.
