I have qualifications in engineering and began seo work in 2006. In 2010 I left my office job and changed direction to running my own online businesses (selling dog treats online in Australia). I have several consultants working on my main site however one does basic offline seo, and while the other does advanced tech (pbns) he has poor communication skills and does not mentor at all.
I am ranked mid page 1 on [url removed, login to view] for many of the keywords we have selected, however they are struggling to get the required rank 1-3. I have boosted budget and will continue trialling them for the next two months most likely.
I may one day move on from my advanced seo guy but my interim project is a request for MENTORING in growth strategies SPECIFIC to my site and ranking on Google. You may have advice on social media or whatever it takes for me to get increased customer ACQUISTIONS.
As said, I currently use several different seo firms working on my keywords for organic results, and don't want to necessarily hire another one while they are being trialled. BUT this is my primary business and I would like to learn whatever skills I can to help increase my business.
That is, I need to do work myself (non seo) that contributes to increased rank or lead generation and higher NEW CUSTOMERS. I post to my own social media pages everyday and dabble in fb advertising but cant get traction with my own methods.
This project is primarily about MENTORING ME. It might be only 5- 10 hours per month however if I can see that you can help me get results via mentoring your company might take over the prime adv technique seo role (if that is what you can do).
So I see that your job if you took this project on would be analyzing what it would take to get new Australian Dog treat customers, and training me in those skills. You can also pitch for seo, but if you cant mentor me in these other areas, it would be hard to assume the level of seo your company has.
Let me know if you want to discuss.
