How much does SEO Cost?
SEO prices can change a huge amount depending on how much you want to spend on it. Most agencies will charge based on the amount of work your website needs and the scope of your campaign. However, there are a wide range of other factors that affect this including whether you’ve had SEO done before, the amount or difficulty of the keywords, the competitiveness of your industry and more. A good rule of thumb is the longer the SEO work is going to take, the more you can expect to pay.
We tailor our strategies to each of our clients needs, meaning you get a campaign that fits your needs and budget. This means we can get you good results regardless of how much you’re paying. While paying more will often get you results faster, as your agency has more resources to work with, we work out which activities will get you the best results for your situation to achieve results faster and within your budget.
Generally you can expect to pay between 500 and a few thousand monthly for an SEO campaign, depending on the scope. Any less than that and your agency isn’t going to have the resources and you’ll end up wasting your money. And if you’re paying significantly more you may be overpaying, unless you’re a large company that needs a huge SEO campaign. If you’re thinking about getting SEO but not sure if you have the budget, we usually recommend our clients get three months of SEO and see where they end up. Three months is the minimum amount of time it’s going to take for you to see results and a good indicator of whether SEO is right for you.
Have you worked with similar businesses in my industry?
Xugar has worked with businesses in a wide range of industries, from legal, education, and eCommerce, to agriculture, chemical processing, plumbing and more. If you’re wondering whether we understand your industry and can deliver the results you’re looking for, talk to our team today. We can almost guarantee we’ve worked with a business in your industry or a similar one. We have the expertise to understand your needs and work out what your business needs to succeed online.
Because all our campaigns are tailored, we need to have an in-depth understanding of our clients markets and industries. We use this insight to choose keywords that are relevant to your services and your goals and engage in activities that will make the most impact for your SEO.
When it comes down to it, SEO is focused online. This means your competition, the things you have to offer, and the information you provide on your website all have to consider the online environment. Rather than your local area, your competition becomes the websites ranking for the keywords you’re targeting, whether they’re your direct competitors in your industry or not. Additionally, the content on your website has to be tailored to the expectations of the people who are searching the keywords. While we understand Google and SEO well and can achieve results by catering to search engines, having a thorough understanding of your business and industry allows us to achieve the best possible results.
Our initial 360 degree SEO audit allows us to gain a greater understanding of your business, market positioning, competition, your website and much more. It’s what helps us develop comprehensive SEO campaigns and achieve the kinds of results we do. Sit down with one of our SEO managers today and we’ll discuss your needs with you and work out exactly what you’re looking to achieve and what we have to do to get you the results you’re looking for.
How long have you been offering SEO?
Xugar has been offering SEO services since 2017. We’ve come a long way since starting, developing our services and helping hundreds of businesses find success online. We’re constantly growing, bringing on more team members and expanding our services to provide better and more comprehensive campaigns for our clients. We’ve delivered incredible results for many of our clients over the years and have clients who have been with us since the start.
While we may not be as big as some of the larger SEO agencies, we can provide more personalised services as a result. Our team of talented SEO campaign managers, content and copy writers, PPC experts, designers and more work with our clients to help achieve the best possible results.
All our campaigns are founded on the philosophy of long term growth. We design them to achieve both short term and long term goals, and implement processes and strategies that will continue to generate results well into the future. It’s how we’ve delivered ongoing value for our clients over the last 4 years. We aim to give you the highest ROI and value for your money.
The last 4 years have been a wild ride, with incredible success both for our clients and for Xugar. Our efforts have seen us recognised by 9 News, Daily Mail, Forbes, Herald Sun, SBS, The Australian and more, and ranking page one for many of the most competitive SEO keywords. If you’re wondering about our experience, you can rest assured you’re in good hands with Xugar.
How long does SEO take to start working?
SEO usually doesn’t take long to start working, but it can take a while to see results. While our efforts will have an immediate impact on your business and website, it can take months, or even a year before you see tangible results. On average, it takes our clients about 3 months to start seeing results, and these results only increase over time.
There are a lot of factors that can affect the time it takes to get results with SEO. Things like the age of your website, the history of your URL, the quality of backlinks, website structure, page structure and more can all affect the effectiveness of SEO. We’ll always let you know before we start SEO with you if there’s any negative SEO on your website and if this will affect the time it takes to get ranking.
If you’re looking to do SEO because you can see other people’s rankings shooting up incredibly quickly, it’s important to remember that results like this aren’t natural. SEO is, by design, a long-term strategy. If someone’s rankings are being boosted like this, there’s a good chance their agency is using “black hat” SEO techniques. These kinds of strategies are banned by Google and heavily penalised, meaning that once Google’s systems detect this kind of SEO the website will be punished and their URL will become basically useless, sent right to the bottom of the search rankings.
With an experienced SEO agency like Xugar as your partner you can achieve sustainable growth and long-term results that are far better for your business in the long-run. If you’re doing SEO for the first time, we recommend getting SEO for 3-12 months, as this will guarantee you see some results and give you a good foundation to build on in the future. The fundamentals of SEO include building the reputation of your website to show Google that it’s a valuable resource for users. If you’re wondering what this would look like for your business, contact our experts today and let us show you!
How Much Time Will You Spend Working on My Campaign?
We spend as much time as we can working on our client’s campaigns, but when it comes down to it we can only spend as much time as we have the money for. While we would love to spend all our time working on every client’s campaign, we don’t have unlimited time.
To make sure each of our clients get the best possible value for their money, we choose the activities that are going to get you the best results for your budget. This means setting smart goals at the start of your campaign and working out how we can implement SEO intelligently, maximising the value of our time and your budget. The higher your budget, the more time we can put into your campaign.
We work closely with all of our clients to understand your needs. If there are things you need done that are outside of your campaign but are simple for us to do, like managing your domain name, changing images on your website, or optimising content on your about us page, we can usually take care of it for you. In the end, we’re here to help! Our team is available when you need us to answer your questions and make sure you’re getting the most out of our services, both for your business and for SEO.
Where did the name Xugar come from?
Xugar was started to fill a gap in the SEO industry market, one that desperately needed to be fixed. When xugar started, many SEO agencies were running “churn and burn” operations. This meant their entire goal was to quickly sign clients into contracts at incredibly cheap prices and then do the bare minimum work and pocket the money. Unfortunately, it was a strategy that worked, at the cost of the reputation of the entire SEO industry. Xugar set out to change that. We started with a foundation of the four main pillars of our business, the four things we believed most important for SEO. These were Technology, Marketing, People, and Businesses. Each one directly influenced our services and guided the way we structured our tailored SEO campaigns. By focusing on generating results for the businesses we worked with, and catering directly to real people with the latest marketing and technology, we could produce far better results than simply burning up clients. It’s this approach that has gotten us to where we are today and, we like to think, how the SEO industry began to change for the better.
Xugar lies at the intersection of these four things, which is where the X in our name comes from! By keeping these four things at the front of everything we do, we’re able to be open and honest with our clients, providing them with a far more thorough campaign and aim for results that will spur real growth for their business. These same techniques we employ for our clients are the ones that have helped us grow over the years as well.
What makes Xugar different from other agencies?
At Xugar, we focus on long term results that benefit your business and help you reach your specific goals. This means you get services that will help your business grow sustainably and will support you as you strive towards your unique goals.
While SEO is focused on search engines, we realised early on that our efforts needed to be directed at the people behind the search engines. Your clients, customers, users and viewers. If you’re not giving them the experience and the information they’re looking for, you’re not going to make any sales! It’s why our SEO campaigns are created with your needs and your customer’s needs in mind. Our campaigns are created in a way that ensures both search engines and your customers get what they’re looking for.
To achieve this, we look at what your competitors are doing, your value proposition and USP, and the kind of customers you’re looking to attract and build your website and SEO campaign in a way that gets you real results. We optimise your website’s user experience, target keywords with good user intent and realistic competition, and write a copy that grabs your customer’s attention and gives them all the information they need to make that all-important purchase decision.
With this approach we can all but guarantee results for our clients, now and in the future. And the best part? Almost all the activities we do on your website are yours to keep and will continue generating results for as long as they’re on your website. While keywords will become more competitive and some of your rankings will drop if you choose to stop doing SEO, the copywriting, conversion optimisation and insight gained from SEO will continue to help you.
Our team is dedicated to your needs from start to finish and beyond! You’re putting your time, money and effort into growing your business, so we’re committed to doing the same. If you’re still wondering what Xugar can do for you, request your 360 degree SEO audit today and our team will assess your business and discuss how SEO and digital marketing can help you grow!
How can you guarantee a return on investment?
While SEO is notoriously unpredictable, we have fail safes in place to make sure you see a return on your investment. By setting out clear goals from the start and keeping things transparent, open and honest, we can work towards objectives and goals that have a real impact on your business.
Our strategies are designed with your needs in mind as well as your budget and timeframe. We focus on the activities that are going to generate you the best possible results with the money and time you have. Our strategies are tailored and will change based on things like your circumstances, business goals, whether you’ve done SEO before and several other things. With these things in mind we can create strategies that will actively help you reach your goals, now or in the future. Our efforts never go unrewarded, and while it can take longer or shorter you will always see a return on your investment.
And just in case we don’t reach the goals set out at the start of the campaign, you’ve got our guarantee. If we can’t get results by the deadline, we’ll continue to work for you for free until we do, no questions asked!
Do you work with big or small companies?
As a leading SEO agency, we’ve worked with companies of all sizes, from startups and family businesses to national businesses and large companies. Because of the way our SEO campaigns are designed we can scale them to the size of any business once they’re tailored. No matter what stage your business is at, whether you’ve just started or you’ve been operating for years, our experts can create a strategy that will help you grow.
While the businesses we work on change, the rules stay the same. And with a deep understanding of the way SEO works we can deliver great results no matter what project we’re working on. However, depending on the size of your business you may need to invest more into your campaign to see results. The more competitive keywords that are going to see you get greater results are also harder to rank for and require more time and effort. Our team may also suggest undertaking additional activities outside of SEO as well if we think they’re going to help. Things like PPC, Social Media Marketing, physical advertising, mail advertising and more can all help your business grow and multiply the effects of SEO. With more people knowing about your business and visiting your website you can get incredible results when combined with SEO optimisation.
