Freelance SEO For Small Businesses

I’m Ian, the freelance SEO consultant behind SERP Boost, an internet search marketing company which specialises in helping small and medium sized businesses across the globe improve their online visibility.

Having run my own company for 15 years, I know the effort which business owners pour into their work, and as an independent SEO specialist with low overheads, I produce agency-standard work at a fraction of the price, which in turn gives you a higher ROI.

As SEO is an ever-changing world, it is essential for both us that I keep on top of the latest trends and algorithm developments in order to stay at the cutting edge of digital marketing.

However, it’s often the simple things which bring the most benefit, and great content combined with building relevant links are the strategic cornerstones of any successful SEO campaign.

I have teamed up with a growing list of clients keen to attract new visitors to their sites, and am always on call for creative agencies which don’t have their own in-house SEO experts.

My SEO Services

Freelance SEOs need to have a varied skill set, and while some focus on the technical aspects of the discipline, I have a background in music and sports journalism, so the creative side is where I excel. Writing blogs and sprucing up sites with fresh copy is a particularly enjoyable part of the job for me, which in turn feeds into overall on-page optimisation being a particularly strong suit.

All are conducted with the latest ‘white hat’ methods to the forefront. I won’t just say what suggestions I’ll be making for your website, but I’ll also explain exactly why those changes will help. In fact, you’ll soon know more about SEO than 99% of the population!

How Much Does SEO Cost?

There is a myth that SEO has to be expensive. While all companies will have different requirements, most SMEs will have modest needs compared to the hundreds of thousands, or even millions spent each year on online marketing by PLCs.

Just because you don’t have the same financial clout as a multi-national doesn’t mean that you can’t compete. The internet is a great leveller.

The rate is just £30 per hour, and the flexibility is there for you to have up to 20 hours of work done per month or even the odd session on an ad hoc basis. However, around 5 hours per cycle is fairly typical.

Can You Guarantee Results?

No, and no SEO agency or freelancer can, and I’d strongly recommend that you run a mile from any company which ‘guarantees’ first page rankings.

What I absolutely can guarantee is that I’ll work my hardest for you, and while I’d certainly expect to see positive results, nobody should be so bold as to promise them.

Free Audit, Worth £50

When you fill out the form below, I will conduct a completely free, no obligation homepage audit on your site.

Rather than generating a report from SEO software, the audit will be done manually in order to give a much better idea of what can be tweaked to encourage ranking improvements in the short term, as well as helping to formulate a more long term SEO strategy to keep you moving in the right direction.

If you’d like to chat about how we can optimise your site, give me a call on (0161) 257 3938 or 07875 768 465, or email me on
