We're a new company that makes and sells organic all-natural soaps online at [url removed, login to view]
Because we launched recently, we need assistance in generating visits and converting visitors to actual paying customers. We know the key to doing this is by developing and maintaining a robust organic-search and SEO-marketing campaign, but we currently don't have the time to do so.
We designed the website ourselves. In fact, we recently took First Place in a website competition for our design and SEO work. We've also built a social media presence (including a blog, twitter, and facebook, among others), distributed press releases that we wrote, and even had some of our soaps reviewed by a few bloggers-- all to build awareness.
But what we need is for people who search for keywords that relate to our business to actually find us on the first page of search-engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo) results. We've submitted our site to online directories, built the site according to White-Hat techniques, and optimized our pages.
Again, although we're new to SEO, we have studied it very well, and we would love to work with a dedicated professional for hopefully the LONG TERM and who can help us become online searchers' number one stop for the products that we offer.
If you want to work with us, please answer the following so that we're better able to review your application:
1. Who have you worked for? How did you help them? What were the results of your work with them?
2. An investigation of what you can currently find out about our site's statistics (where do we place, and anything else you can gather)
3. An overview of your strategy for our site based on those statistics you found. (E.g. what keywords do you recommend? How would you use stats about our side to further optimize it continuously, and anything else you can offer?)
4. How much would you charge per month?
Ultimately, we want to know what you'd do with our SEO in order to keep us as a long-term client and to keep our company within the top three search-engine results.
Remember we're not looking for someone who can do just a one-time thing; we want to work with the professional we choose for as long as is necessary. Understand that because we're a small and new company, we couldn't afford Freelancer's big posting fee for those wishing to hire full-time. Therefore, our budget ($250 - $400) represents our expected MONTHLY budget for this project.
Thank you very much in advance and we're looking forward to working with you!
