You’ve invested your time and money to make your photography website a business generating machine, but even the best website won’t help your business if nobody knows it exists. Smart marketers use SEO to bring new visitors to your website, so you can get your work in front of brides, seniors, and mothers who had previously never heard of your studio.
How SEO Grows Your Business
Search Engine Optimization is about getting your website to show up in Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Every day thousands of consumers look online to find a photographer. On our website, we get close to 40% of our traffic from search engines, and from that traffic, we convert customers to make up around 1/3 of our business. Tapping into the power of SEO may be one of the smartest marketing investments a studio can make to find new customers.
My Track Record
Getting to the top of the search results doesn’t happen by chance. It takes careful planning and the right techniques. Luckily you can tell who knows their stuff and who doesn’t by taking a quick look at their track record. Here are a few of the keyword phrases that I’ve ranked for:
“belleville il photographer” – currently ranked #1 in Google
“st louis area photography” – currently ranked #1 in Google
“top wedding videographers” – currently ranked #1 in Google
“jpeg replacement” – currently ranked #2 in Google
“proshow web review” – currently ranked #3 in Google

SEO is just like any other kind of marketing. If you stick with it, you’re going to see results, but it’s tough to tell exactly how long it will take to see the results you’re wanting. Depending on your specific market and how hard you’re willing to work, you could start seeing results as soon as a few months or possibly even within the first month. If you’re in a competitive market and you’re not seeing the results you want, my regular rate is $75 an hour.
