General FAQ’s

What do you need from me before you start working on my text/marketing/website?

Except for my web support service, I require that you complete a comprehensive business report. That will provide me with all of the relevant information I need to do my work.

Do I need to set up Google Analytics?

Yes! Whether you have me set it up for you, or you set it up yourself, you need Google Analytics. It is the #1 marketing tool for your business. It allows you to gain valuable information about your customers and the performance of your website. If you don't have it, you'll be blind as a bat in the digital world.

Google/Bing PPC Marketing Faq's

Why don’t I list a fixed setup fee for PPC account management?

The work involved in managing PPC accounts for small businesses takes approximately the same amount of time. This makes a fixed pricing structure perfectly viable for management.

However, the setup time for the accounts can vary wildly from business to business. That is why I provide a fixed setup cost only after analyzing your business, ensuring you never have to pay more than you have to.

What type of advertisements will you run? (Text, Images, Shopping, ect.)

That depends on what your business is doing, what your monthly ad spend is, and what your business objectives are. You’ll have to contact me to learn more about what I would specifically do for your business.

SEO Service Faq's

How long will it take to see results with SEO?

Unfortunately, there's no definitive answer to this question. With a well-established website, sometimes SEO copywriting is all that's needed to boost rankings significantly. On a brand-new website, it may take months and even years to achieve any significant results.

With that said, local SEO is a different story altogether. While E-Commerce/Digital Service websites are competing with businesses all over the world, local businesses have much less competition. Furthermore, local small businesses try to do the SEO work themselves, which is unprofessional, and the competition is easier for me to overcome. (Meaning you get faster results.)

No matter what, my advice is the same as Google’s. Below you’ll find a quote from an article by Google titled - “Do you need an SEO?”

“No one can guarantee a #1 ranking on Google. Beware of SEOs that claim to guarantee rankings, allege a "special relationship" with Google, or advertise a "priority submit" to Google. There is no priority submit for Google. In fact, the only way to submit a site to Google directly is through our Add URL page or by submitting a Sitemap and you can do this yourself at no cost whatsoever.” - Click Here to View the Full Article from Google

As with any other marketing service, there are no “silver-bullet” solutions. You should view SEO as one piece of your marketing strategy, and it will take time to grow and cultivate.

How will you improve my sites SEO?

I’ve developed a cost-effective process designed specifically for local small businesses. You can learn more by following this link to my Local SEO service page.

What's your copywriting style?

First and foremost, I’m a marketer. That means I’m very flexible when it comes to my writing style. When I write text, it will be in a form that your customers will enjoy. It’s entirely dependant on who your target market is. (Target Market -The profitable customers for your business.)

How come you don’t offer small business copywriting packages?

Copy requirements vary widely from business to business. With small business packages, you can end up paying way more than the amount of work I’ve done. That's why I charge a customized flat rate according to the amount of work that needs to be done and don’t offer copywriting packages.

Web Development Faq's

Do you develop for Drupal, Shopify, WordPress or any other CMS?

I can, but Joomla! is my recommendation. Most small businesses won’t see any benefit from using Drupal, as it’s too complicated for them to manage/maintain.

WordPress works well, but it’s a blogging platform with CMS functionalities and not a true CMS. Joomla! Also uses a standard MVC architectural pattern, while WordPress is “MVC like.” Follow this link to find out what the Model-View-Controller Software Architectural Pattern is.

CMS’s provided by hosted commerce platforms like Shopify, Freewebstore, and Network Solutions not only have limited features but also lock you into their hosting service. If you don’t like their fee’s or service, you will have to rebuild your entire web store to change hosting companies..

With Joomla!, you can choose almost any hosting provider you want. And if you're going to change hosting providers, later on, you can without much trouble!

Website Maintenance Faq's

Do you develop plugins?

No. My service is for support and management only. However, I will be glad to fix or adjust plugins if needed!

If I subscribe for monthly management and want backups, where will my backups be stored?

Your web hosting provider should be backing up your website already. If they aren't, I would highly advise switching over to Siteground for hosting. They provide free backups along with other services. Click here to learn more about Siteground web hosting.

If your hosting provider isn’t making backups for you, I will be using Dropbox to store your files. They offer free storage up to 2GB. However, you will probably have to subscribe to their “Plus” monthly service plan that stores up to 1TB. The cost is $9.99 per month.

Once again, I'd like to stress that your web hosting provider should be doing this for you in the first place. Your files are stored on their servers, and it wouldn't cost that much if anything at all.
