Hey 👋 I’m the #1 St Louis SEO Consultant
Need more traffic, leads, and sales from Google for your St Louis business? Let’s talk ⬇️
5 Reasons Why Your St Louis Business Needs SEO (in 2022)
It Can Be Your #1 Growth Channel
I’ve built many businesses using nothing but Search Engine Optimization as my core digital marketing channel. We’ve also turned SEO into the #1 digital marketing growth channel for 100s of St Louis, MO companies.
And want to know what’s cool when Search Engine Optimization is your #1 digital marketing channel?
You’re not reliant on expensive ads that become more difficult with each passing day.
And you’ll experience this:
Get Leads and Sales 24/7
Google works around the clock to send you qualified traffic, leads, and sales. It doesn’t take breaks. And once you rank, you can get 24/7 sales for YEARS—more on this in a second.
But you might be wondering: why is Search Engine Optimization so effective?
For one simple reason:
When someone searches for “St Louis SEO consultant,” I know what they want. They need a St Louis SEO company to help them get better rankings.
If someone searches “what is Search Engine Optimization,” I know they’re interested in learning about SEO or inbound marketing.
That’s the power of intent within search engines. Intent allows you to create pages based on what the searcher is looking to achieve.
As a result, you can target keywords at each stage of a buyer’s journey.
And this all happens on autopilot. Bringing me to the next important point:
The Value Lifespan Dominates Every Other Channel
Social media marketing is like winning the lottery. 99% of the time, it’s based on luck. Unfortunately, the truth is that most social media marketing campaigns fall on deaf ears.
In other words, most campaigns don’t work! There are a few reasons, but one is that the lifespan of social content is short.
For example, you post a Tweet, which may get traction for a week. Then you need to do it again over and over to maintain any visibility.
But for Search Engine Optimization, you create one asset, rank it, and you’ll keep getting traffic, leads, and sales for years.
You get it, Search Engine Optimization is awesome. But now here’s the most important reason to get started now:
Time in the Market
Your competitors are already investing in Search Engine Optimization and inbound marketing; if you aren’t, you’ll play catch up.
Here’s the deal: SEO is like investing.
You may have heard the concept that “time in the market beats timing the market” within investing. The same is true for SEO.
You need to be doing Search Engine Optimization (be in the market) to get the compounded benefits. SEO is a long play; the longer you wait, the harder it gets.
And this isn’t my opinion; it’s math.
If your competitors have 100 SEO content assets working right now, you’ll need to create 100. If your competitors have 1,000 backlinks, you’ll need 1,000 backlinks. To beat them, you must narrow the gaps between you and your competitors. It’s that simple. So the longer you wait, the harder it gets!

In a Sea of St Louis SEO Consultants, Why Us?

That’s why we focus on high-impact actions that will deliver the best results (long-term). Not all actions are equal in Search Engine Optimization. So instead of nonsense deliverables, we focus on what works.
Speaking of results, here’s a taste of what we can do:
Work with Real St Louis SEO Experts, Not Interns
Our St Louis SEO company is intentionally small because we only hire the top 1% of professionals. Would you rather have a seasoned professional working on your campaign or an intern? That’s how 99% of agencies work. They assign an inexperienced account manager to manage your campaign. They’re focused on scaling; we’re focused on results.

Every SEO and inbound marketing situation is unique and requires a customized strategy. Therefore, our St Louis SEO company will assess your situation and develop a personalized plan that works.

Frequently Asked Questions
How much does SEO cost for a St Louis business?
Before I explain, it’s important to reframe this question. Search Engine Optimization is NOT a cost. It is an investment. You put $1 in when it works and get $2 + out.
Now I will say this:
Working with the wrong partner will turn SEO into a cost.
You’ll flush money down the toilet if you pick an inexperienced SEO agency that uses sketchy SEO tactics.
Now back to the original question: how much investment is necessary to get SEO results?
First, the total investment you should expect is specific to your industry. Second, it’s based on the individual or digital marketing agency’s amount of experience. In the case of industry, the more competitive it is, the bigger the budget you’ll need to break through.
For example, ranking for “St Louis personal injury lawyer” is much more competitive than trying to rank for “St Louis hot dog stand.” The second piece of the equation is experience.
Take a look at this study from Ahrefs:
You’ll need to invest more to work with an experienced digital marketing professional. Some newbie St Louis SEO professionals might become great at what they do.
But are you willing to take that risk?
It’s much less risky to invest with an SEO agency that already has the battle scars through years of experience. So, yes, you’ll need to invest more, but it’s a much better long-term investment.
Picking the wrong vendor can lead to poor quality work and penalties from Google. In the long run, fixing poor-quality SEO work will cost you much more.
Work with experienced SEO agencies out of the gate to save yourself the headache.
Should you work with a big digital marketing agency?
There are many great “big” St Louis digital marketing agencies. But, most digital marketing agencies offer Search Engine Optimization as an upsell, not a core service.
For example, they may specialize in web design and development but provide SEO as a backend offer.
You know that a jack of all trades is a master of none.
No St Louis SEO agencies can be great at:
- brand strategy
- web design / web development
- app development
- graphic design
- email marketing
- media planning
- conversion optimization…
SEO is an advanced skill set that’s constantly changing.
To be top 1% at SEO (like us), you must focus 100% of your time and effort on it. That’s why we ONLY do SEO.
Yes, this hurts our topline by not offering other services. But the sacrifice is worth it because we can do exceptional SEO work for our St Louis clients.
The other downside with a full-service marketing agency is that you’ll be another number on their roster. When you work with us, we are partners and extensions of your business.
In other words, we treat your St Louis business as if it was our own.
You’ll work with our top 1% SEO experts, not a college intern without experience.
