How much does SEO Cost?
If you’re just starting with SEO, you can expect to pay anywhere from hundreds to thousands. The cost of SEO can depend on a wide range of things, such as the amount of optimisation your website needs, whether you’ve had any SEO work done on it before, the difficulty of the keywords you’re trying to rank for and more. When it comes to Search Engine Optimisation, every business and every website is unique. We tailor all our SEO campaigns to our clients needs, creating comprehensive strategies geared towards reaching your goals.
If you’re trying to work out how much to pay for SEO, the most important thing is to know you’re getting real results. Paying for the cheapest SEO plan might seem like a good idea, but when it comes down to it you’re paying for your agency’s time. Paying the bare minimum will get you the bare minimum of work and it can take years for you to see any results with SEO.
On the other hand, paying too much can also be a problem. Unless you’re a large corporation, paying tens of thousands of dollars for SEO can be unnecessary. Of course, large SEO campaigns can often cost that much. The best way to get the most for your money is to make sure you can see what your SEO agency is doing. Clear goals set out from the start, clear objectives, KPIs and tasks, and tracking your ROI can help you see the value of your SEO and work out how much you should be paying.
Most SEO agencies charge between $500 and $1000 a month for a basic plan where they will help your website rank for a number of keywords. You should expect to pay for SEO for a minimum of 3 months if you haven’t done SEO before.
Have you worked with similar businesses in my industry?
Xugar has worked with businesses of all sizes across a wide range of industries. We work closely with our clients to understand their markets and industries and create tailored SEO campaigns that work towards their goals. Understanding your customers, target market, and the quirks of your industry helps us achieve better overall results.
No matter what industry you’re operating in, there’s a good chance we’ve worked with a business in your industry or a similar one. No matter what your goals are, we can help you reach them and grow your business using SEO.
One of the best things about SEO is the fact that you don’t need to have a comprehensive understanding of a specific industry to succeed. While it helps, it’s important to remember that with SEO you’re competing online. The competitors you face online may be different from your usual competition, as you’re competing with everyone targeting your specific keywords. Google gives you a level playing field to compete and as long as you’re building your website’s reputation and working on SEO you can compete.
Through an initial 360 degree SEO audit at the start of your campaign, we can get a much better understanding of your industry and your business. This lets us tailor our SEO activities closer to your business and your goals, picking the best and most relevant keywords and achieving better results. We can also use the information we get to identify opportunities for growth, such as targeting new markets with specific keywords and giving you insight into what your competitors are doing online. With more information and insight into your industry, we can help you get the best results out of your SEO campaign.
How long have you been offering SEO?
Since 2017 Xugar has been providing SEO for businesses throughout Canberra and Australia. But while we’ve only been around for a few years, our SEO experts have years of experience in digital marketing, PPC, content and copywriting and more. We’ve developed our skills over the years and fine tuned them to be able to provide comprehensive SEO services for all our clients. With our expertise we can provide you with the results you’re looking for and help you grow your business online. And we’re only getting better with time!
We’re constantly growing, bringing on new talent and experience to provide better and better services for our clients. Our strategies are built around the philosophy of long term growth, ensuring that as we improve our services and grow as a business, our clients do as well. With both short term and long term goals you can bet we’re working hard to make sure you get the results you’re looking for now and in the future.
We’re not just talk either! Our efforts have been recognised in our client’s success as well as in the news and media. Xugar and our clients have been featured on local and national news, with appearances on 9 News, Daily Mail, Forbes, Herald Sun, SBS, The Australian and more. If you’re looking for a digital marketing partner with experience that can help you in the future as you grow, Xugar is for you.
How long does SEO take to start working?
Unfortunately, there’s no solid answer to this question. As SEO changes dramatically depending on a huge number of factors surrounding your business and website, it can take anywhere from a month to a year, or more. SEO activities will start having an effect on your website immediately, but it may be a while before you start seeing results.
If your website or URL has a history of negative SEO, such as bad backlinks, a messy structure, slow or bad hosting or similar, SEO can take longer than usual to start working. Our team will always inform you if this is the case and create a strategy to deal with this and get you results.
Most of our clients see results in an average of 3-6 months. Anything less than this is asking for trouble, as a fresh website and domain going up the rankings so fast is often unnatural. Black hat SEO can get you these results fast, but it all comes tumbling down when Google finds out and penalises you. It can take months, or even years to repair the damage done by black hat SEO techniques.
We work hard for our success, aiming for long term, sustainable growth over short term SEO boosts. If someone promises you results in less than 3 months, it’s time to get out of there and save your money. We recommend all our clients sign up for a minimum of 12 months, as this will give you the best chance of getting the huge results many of our clients have already seen.
How much time will you spend actively working on my Campaign?
We spend as much time as we can working on our client’s campaigns. Of course, while we’d love to spend all our time on every client, there are a limited number of hours in a day. By setting up a solid strategy at the start of your campaign we can work out what Search Engine Optimisation activities are going to get you the best results in the time we have. This way the results you get aren’t entirely dictated by the amount you’re paying.
SEO is pretty flexible in the kinds of activities we can undertake to get results. With our experience, your knowledge of your business and industry, and a little bit of creativity we can work out which areas to put our efforts in and tailor our strategies according to that.
We’re honest and open with all our clients from the start. If we can’t do something with the scope of your campaign, or can’t afford to spend time on something within your budget, we’ll tell you. This way you can work out whether you want to put more in and can be sure your money is going to get you results. Usually, if something is outside the scope of your campaign but not going to take much for us to do, we’ll do it for you. This is a partnership after all, and making sure you get the best is our top priority!
Where did the name Xugar come from?
Xugar comes from Sugar, but with a bit of our own flair thrown in for good measure. We started Xugar on four pillars that became our foundation; Technology, Marketing, People, and Businesses. Each one plays an important role in how we design our services and how we operate, intersecting to create Xugar as you see us today. At the center of this intersection, the X, is you and your business. We take into account marketing activities, use the latest technology, work out who we’re marketing to, and look at businesses you’re competing with and working with to create comprehensive digital marketing strategies that will give you incredible results.
We designed this strategy as a result of the industry as a whole. When Xugar was first started, many SEO agencies were taking a “churn and burn” approach to SEO. This involved signing new clients as fast as possible, doing the bare minimum of work and then abandoning them. While it made a few people a lot of money, it destroyed the reputation of the SEO industry in Australia. We set out to change that, working on SEO strategies that focused on long-term, sustainable growth and results.
One thing that made a huge difference was transparency. We took what used to be secretive SEO techniques and made them public, as well as the results we were achieving with them. With our reporting system our clients could see the work we were doing and what effect it was having on their website and business, something a lot of our competitors weren’t doing. Keeping the four pillars of our X at the core of all our campaigns lets us make sure we’re targeting what’s really important. It’s this philosophy we want to see spread throughout the SEO and digital marketing industry.
What makes Xugar different from other agencies?
While we do offer the option for shorter campaigns, all our work is focused on achieving long-term results. By tailoring our campaigns and strategies to our clients needs we can work out what is going to get them the best results in the long term, even if they choose to leave Xugar.
These days, websites need to be made for people first. While hitting the top of the search rankings is the goal, if your website doesn’t appeal to your users you’re not going to get the best results. Our SEO optimisation covers every aspect of your website, from the user experience and visuals to the things in the backend no one sees. Everything comes together to create a complete experience for both users and search engines.
All our campaigns start with a complete audit of your website, your competition, current performance, industry trends and more. This way we can see what you’re doing well and areas that need to be improved on in order to grow. We aim to make the most of your money and deliver the best possible ROI, which means allocating our time to the activities that are going to see you get the best results in the long term. Things like UX, site speed optimisation, great content and more will all stay with your website forever, helping you convert more customers and create a better overall experience.
Finally, to make sure you’re really getting the results you’re paying for, we provide you with regular updates as well as access to our reporting and data system. This way, you can see exactly what we’re doing and the effect it has on your website. We’re here to help and provide you with the information you need to understand SEO, your website, and digital marketing as a whole.
If you have questions about your website or need some work done online, our team is always available to help. We can assist with any problems you’re having with your website or anything online and give you the support you need to succeed. Talk to our team today for more information and we’ll show you the difference Xugar can really make for your business. And if you’re still not convinced, request a free 360degree SEO audit and see for yourself!
How can you guarantee a return on investment?
Setting out clear goals and objectives from the start that have real implications for your business are the best way to achieve results. This way we know what we’re working towards and you can be sure you’re going to be able to grow your business with the work we’re doing.
Of course, we can’t always guarantee results in a specific amount of time. While we average about 3 months to start seeing results, some of our clients take longer depending on their circumstances, the keywords we’re trying to rank for, the industry and a wide range of other factors. Designing our strategies like this gives us the best chance at achieving real, tangible results for you. They will give you an edge against your competition and make sure you see results eventually, but time is the key factor here.
The best thing about our strategies is that you will continue to get results well into the future. With proper optimisation, great content, backlinks, internal linking and a wide range of other SEO activities you can be sure the work we do for you will continue generating results for a long time to come.
In the rare event we can’t reach the goals set out at the start in time, we’ll continue working for you for free. No questions asked. That’s our guarantee to you. For more information on our results guarantee, talk to our team today.
Do you work with big or small companies?
Xugar works with everyone, from small local businesses to large, national and even global companies. If you’re willing to put the effort in to grow your business then we are too. We’ll work by your side to help you achieve your goals and create intelligent strategies to get there. While earlier is always better, SEO is a strategy that will give you results no matter what stage your business is at. It’s a long term activity that will only get better as your business grows.
Our techniques are designed to be easily customisable to suit each of our client’s unique needs. No matter what size your business or website is, we can create a strategy that scales to your size and grows as you grow. Whether your goal is to reach more potential customers on Google, improve your website conversion rate, or break into a new target market, our SEO strategies can help you do it.
Depending on your goals we might suggest additional digital marketing activities to help yoru business grow faster. Combining SEO with SEM, PPC, or even physical marketing activities such as advertising in newspapers, billboards and similar can see a huge boost to your SEO if done correctly. We work with you to identify these opportunities and make sure you’re getting the most out of your SEO.
