What Makes Our California SEO Services Special

Thousands of dollars generated for our clients

SEO can either make a huge impact for your business or do nothing at all. It all comes down to whether your website actually gets to the first page, whether your local market has sufficient search volume, and whether you’re targeting the right keywords.

We keep all this in mind when developing our client SEO campaigns. As a result, we’ve had overwhelming success for our clients – for not just getting them to the first page of search engines, but targeting the right keywords which interested customers are actually searching up.

Living the spirit of California

We are from the North, but are very much in tune with everything that California stands for. We understand the proper form of interaction, what’s acceptable to write and say, and general guidelines around communication.

This is hugely important because a large part of SEO involves tweaking existing text content, adding text and descriptions in the back end, and writing long form text content. You can rest assured that we know how to phrase things in a way that is acceptable, clear, and concise (and we always get prior approval before making any changes to your website).

More than just SEO experts

We have backgrounds and experience in various other disciplines as well, including consumer psychology, brand building, and finance.

We genuinely just want the best for our clients – so we also enjoy helping them with things that aren’t even directly related to SEO, such as building up a social media presence, developing ad copy, researching new target markets & consumer groups, and much more.

Our clients are like family to us – and as such, we do what it takes to make them happy and doing well. Have a chat with us – you’ll quickly realize the difference between a small group of pros that are genuinely trying to achieve strong results and outcomes, compared to a large agency that just sees you as another dollar sign.

No Hassle, No Pressure

We don’t do any spammy emailing or cold calling ourselves. We simply put everything about us out there and clients find us (through Google search, mainly… hint: SEO works!)

If you want us to do your business’s SEO, we’re more than happy to do so. If you want to just chat and ask a few questions, we could do that, too. If you request a website analysis and you think you don’t really want to go forth – that’s fine!

The point is that we don’t believe in pressure or slimy sales tactics. Instead we treat our clients (and those who are thinking of partnering up with us) with decency and respect.

No Cancellation Fees, No Admin Costs

Going back to the points above – we specifically decided to take a different approach compared to many other SEO agencies. We decided to not charge any “admin costs” or cancellation fees – mainly because these fees are often just made up to charge clients more (except for specific circumstances, of course).

So there’s really no risk in launching an SEO campaign with us. If you feel that it’s no longer your priority, or are having budgetary constraints, or really any reason at all – you can just cancel any time.

Commonly Asked Questions

What kind of California businesses can benefit from SEO?

Most businesses could benefit from hiring an SEO agency to fix up and improve their site to get higher search visibility. The ones that can benefit the most, however, are small and local business (which we specifically focus on!)

This is because large companies like chains and franchises are often backed by millions of dollars going towards their web development and digital marketing, and they already have existing frameworks that helps them show up high in search.

Small businesses don’t have this luxury, and are essentially going against giants. The good news, however, is that most big companies don’t go all in on doing SEO, and often it’s actually not that hard to get a local business to show up higher than them, if you apply the right approach

Can you guarantee that I will show up on the first page?

It is impossible to guarantee that a website will 100% show up on the first page, and you should really avoid any SEO agency that claims that they can make such a guarantee (we talk about this in great length in one of our articles).

The Google Search algorithm is incredibly sophisticated. It’s constantly updating and being re-written. You can never fully be certain that you’ll get to the first page. Instead you can make a highly educated guess based on dozens of data points, and predict within a reasonable degree of accuracy whether your site has potential to improve and what time span it would take.

If I do SEO, can I stop doing the advertising / marketing that I'm already doing?

The answer is… it depends. Generally, we tell clients that you could maybe start considering dropping advertising if:

  • You rank on the first page for the highest value keywords related to your products / services
  • You’re already meeting or surpassing your monthly sales targets consistently.
  • You’re getting over 60% of your current traffic through organic search

If your site hasn’t hit these three points yet, we definitely recommend to still continue doing the advertising you were already doing. You can also use online ads to help boost up your site metrics (if done correctly), which also can benefit your SEO.

Important Things To Know About Our SEO Services

What Else Should I know

We Are A Boutique SEO Firm

Our founders have worked for multiple large advertising agencies in the past.

What they’ve found to be consistent among all of these companies are the broken lines of communication.

The larger the digital marketing agency is, the more people you have to go through to get answers to your simple questions.

Active Business Growth wanted to avoid this.

Instead of talking to all these different account managers, account directors, seo specialists, and so on – you talk directly to the people who are actually doing the work on your campaign.

The same person that does the work is the same person that is your direct line of communication.

There is no better SEO agency model than this.

We Focus Namely On Local Businesses; However, We Do Accept Other Types Of Businesses

Although small and local businesses are the bread and butter of our clientele, we do accept other types of businesses as well.

These include large corporations, franchises, and e-commerce shops.

We Are SEO Experts

Along with scaling back on the number of employees in order to avoid too many cooks in the kitchen, we also scaled back on the services we offer.

We wanted to be a master at one thing: search engine optimization.

Because of this, we decided that this will be our core offering.

We work on SEO campaigns all day every day – we are SEO experts, not a jack-of-all-trades.

We Limit The Total Amount Of Clients We Take On At Any Given Time

We believe in providing our clients with the best possible results.

In order to do so, we have to have laser focus on our SEO campaigns to ensure we are constantly improving upon our KPIs.

Most California SEO agencies focus on client acquisition rather than service fulfillment.

Meaning, they’re more concerned about on-boarding new clients rather than doing the actual work their current clients are paying them to do.

To avoid this, we cap the amount of clients we take on at any given point in time to ensure we can focus on what really matter.

We Work On A Monthly Retainer

We do not perform work on an hourly basis.

All of our SEO packages are priced on a monthly basis.

Recognition For Being A Top SEO Firm

We have received many awards and accolades for our services.

Not only do we have 100% 5-star, Google, Facebook, and Google My Business reviews, we have also received awards from the likes of Clutch, Top Design Firms, and UpCity.

Take a look in the footer of this page to see just some of the recent SEO awards we have received.
