Freelance SEO For Small Businesses

I’m Ian, the freelance SEO consultant behind SERP Boost, an internet search marketing company based in Manchester.

I provide high quality and cost effective search engine optimisation to small and medium sized businesses all around the country. The initial goal is to push your Google rankings higher, which as well as driving more traffic to your website, will also ideally generate more leads, customers and improve brand awareness.

Having run my own business for 15 years, I know the effort which small 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 higher ROI.

I have teamed up with a growing list of clients throughout the UK and Ireland, and am always on call for creative agencies which don’t have their own in-house SEO experts.

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.

My 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.

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.

In fact, you can optimise your site from just £30, and believe me when I say that a LOT of effective and long-lasting work can be done in just one session.

Free Initial Audit

When you fill out the form below, I will conduct a completely free, no obligation homepage audit on your site. This will give us both an idea of what can be tweaked to bring along 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.
