"We finalized our decision on hiring Bluestem Media LLC as our SEO partner. To date we have seen great results. In fact, in one of our target markets we have increased from 69th to 2nd place! Those are the results that we were looking for..."

- Ozzy Tello, Owner of Peace of Mind Inspection Services, LLC, Navarre, Florida

SEO is a hard thing to "shop" for. You are never 100% sure what you are getting for your money. You aren't sure whether a company is reputable or can deliver results. Maybe you've had bad experiences with an SEO agency in the past.

We try our best to drive leads and results for your business. Our policy is to communicate with you about what is working and what is not working. At any time, you can stop working with us if you are unhappy.

The team and SEO methodology are built from scratch. Our methods have been tested and honed over time. We hope our industry knowledge (and past mistakes) will help bring clarity to the digital marketing strategy for your business.

Things we get asked during SEO meetings

We are always in communication with you. We provide monthly dashboard reporting, along with work reports for the month. You will be able to see the progress in rankings, traffic, and conversions over time. We want to put you in the driver's seat!

Bluestem Media can do both SEO consulting and SEO subscriptions. Consulting is done on an hourly basis and is billed out at our current billable rate. Subscriptions are a flat monthly fee. 90%+ of our clients prefer the subscription model due to the easy structure AND getting "more than they paid for" many months out of the year.

Yes, we can work with websites built by other firms. Oftentimes, we will look to standardize the internal workings of the website to be similar to our current client workflows. This makes it easier to provide a higher volume of deliverables to you. 

We hate to be vague, but it really depends on the situation. A brand new website build can take up to 12+ months to start gaining traction in the SERPs. An established website can see improvements on certain keywords within weeks of starting a campaign. It really all depends on competition, industry, and age/condition of your website.

The business case for SEO

Our central thesis for why a business should use SEO is to use the following mental exercise: When you need to solve a problem or find a product/service, how do you go about navigating this?

For most people, they will go straight to their phones, and then straight to a search engine.

Search engines become the gatekeepers of the solution. If you are listed on their search engine, you have access to users who are ready to have their problems solved. If you are NOT listed on their search engine, you lose access.

SEO is simply the process of learning what the search engines like, and modeling our websites to best fit this preference.
