HUNDREDS OF WEBSITES OPTIMIZED

TEN YEARS OF ELITE SEARCH MARKETING EXPERIENCE

It’s simple, really. Your business in Seattle needs an easy-to-use, easy-to-find website that builds your credibility and convincingly sells your services to potential clients. Why do most online marketing companies make it so complicated—locking you into expensive, ongoing SEO contracts that don’t even get first-page organic rank in Google search results?

I keep it simple. I’m a search marketing professional specializing in SEO for small and medium business in the Seattle area. I have seen just how broken, ineffective, and frankly rigged the traditional model of subscription-based SEO is. I want to change all that.

A Formula for Success

EXPERTISE + SERVICE = RESULTS

I’ve successfully optimized over 200 websites in the last 10 years. Because I really do love what I do, I never outsource the work—so you can rest assured that I will personally see your project through from start to finish

My SEO clients in Seattle have called me “responsive,” “perceptive,” “skillful,” and “committed.” When you work with me, you get the same level of service and attention that has made each of my SEO campaigns a success.

WHO IS MIKE SCHATZ ANYWAY?

I AM MIKE SCHATZ

SEO Consultant for Seattle’s Small Businesses

I’m a serial entrepreneur and an expert in all things search marketing. Over the past decade I have been directly involved with the launch, development, and sale of a variety of companies whose success can be largely attributed to effective SEO.

I happened upon the convoluted world of search engine marketing and SEO by way of circumstance—and decided to make a career out of helping Seattle businesses free themselves from costly and ineffective SEO contracts.

I live every day with an attitude of gratitude; I am a proud father and devoted husband and I’m blessed to do what I love: Apply SEO wizardry to get my clients rank with Google, Bing, Yahoo!, and other search engines. That’s not just an empty promise. I have a portfolio of successful projects and optimization metrics the likes of which is possessed by only a handful of search marketing professionals in the industry today.

I HELP SMALL BUSINESSES RANK ORGANICALLY, LOCALLY, AND SOCIALLY
ON THE FIRST PAGE OF GOOGLE SEARCH RESULTS

THE WAY MOST SMALL BUSINESSES DO BUSINESS ONLINE IS BROKEN

The overwhelming majority of online marketing companies—like Reach Local, FindLaw, Sesame Communications, Yodle, and their countless clones—charge a monthly subscription for services that, in my opinion, offer little or no long-term value for their clients. Most of the websites produced by these companies are nothing more than templates filled with boilerplate marketing jargon. Sites like that don’t work, and I’ll tell you why…

Sites like that miss the mark in numerous ways. They have little, if any, organic rank. They don’t rank locally or socially. And they’re not optimized to convert AdWords or other PPC traffic into calls or clients. To make matters worse, these sites are used to hold you hostage. You’re told that if you stop your subscription, your rank will simply vanish. Rubbish, baloney, hogwash!

At the going rate of $400 to $1,000 per month with an average contract duration of two years, you could end up spending $10,000 to $24,000—only to end up with an ineffective, poorly ranked, boilerplate website. I think this is criminal and I’m here to change the status quo.

How I Can Help

Stuck in a Contract? I’ll look at your current site and find ways to make it perform the way it should have from the start. I’ll enhance the on-page and off-page SEO to make you rank for your desired keywords and phrases. And I’ll create rock-solid content that resonates with prospective clients, that converts traffic into phone calls, and turns visitors into customers.

No Contract and Ready for Change? Perfect, I’ll build a fresh, new site that sets your small business apart from your competition with great content, stunning design, and clear calls to action. And, yes, your site will rank!

Are You Promoting SEM? Need an AdWords Campaign? I’ll set up and teach you to manage AdWords and PPC campaigns that rock. Because I’ve been doing this since AdWords first came onto the scene, my skills have evolved with the platform; I’m an AdWords expert and have personally set up and managed over $3 million dollars worth of AdWords campaigns. I know how to supercharge your AdWords campaign to maximize conversions and ROI, give you a clear picture of client acquisition cost, and set you up for advertising success.

Want Social and Local Search Optimization? Placement with Local Search Optimization means that your business appears on a map of Seattle in Google, Bing, and Yahoo! organic search results. Social placement via Social Media Optimization means that your Facebook, Twiter, LinkedIn, and Google+ pages rank in organic search results. Both are paramount to the success of any small business’ marketing campaign. I am a specialist at optimizing business websites and social media pages to rank locally and socially. If you’re not ranking in these two verticals, you’re definitely missing out on new business.
