DIGITAL STRATEGY

  • Should you be using Facebook? Twitter? YouTube?
  • Do you need to change your website?
  • How can you attract clients online?

Whether you’re an artist, a freelancer, or a business owner who’s not sure how to navigate the online world, let’s create a digital strategy plan that works for you!

How this works:

Most clients hire me for strategy planning on a regular basis, usually bi-monthly or monthly. Some people hire me just once to get advice on one or two things. For an example of how it works when you work with me on a regular basis:

1. We start with a one-hour call to learn more about your current online presence, and your goals.

2. We build a basic plan to get you started working towards your goals.

3. Before our next call, you’ll get a worksheet to fill out. Then, at the end of the call, you’ll get a roadmap that will detail the work that needs to be done. Some clients work with me bi-monthly, some on a monthly basis.

4. Each time we work together, you’ll get a worksheet, and a roadmap. This allows you to keep track of the work that you do, and it gets you to closer to your goals.

SEO

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

“SEO” is just a fancy term for making your website and your content easier to find on Google. If you want a solid chance at being found online, you need to make it easier for people to look for you, and to find your website.

You can choose from one of the following packages:

A. DIY SEO

This “Do it yourself” package is best for people who have staff or time to do SEO themselves.

  1. I’ll do all the necessary research, from competition research, to keyword research, to an analysis of your website’s speed and effectiveness.
  2. You’ll get a full report and a list of where to make changes, and what content to add for maximum effectiveness.

Rate: $500 flat-fee (CDN)

 

B. Advanced SEO

The advanced package is best for a company or an individual who doesn’t have the time nor the staff to do any SEO on their own.

  1. In this package, I will do all the work for you.
  2. I will do the research, and I’ll make the necessary modifications to your website.
  3. I’ll also write (or one of my associates will write) 2 to 4 pieces of content for you.
  4. Rates vary depending on your current content and search rankings. You should expect to be engaged for at least three months.

Rate: $1000 to $2000 per month (CDN)
