Why We Will NOT Tout our SEO Services
You’ll likely run into quite a few companies, consultants and “gurus” who will offer you magical “voodoo” services for one of two things: extremely low or extremely high fees when discussing search engine optimization.
When you run into these people, we would suggest turning around and running as quickly as possible. SEO is not magical. SEO is practical, planned and should be extremely predictable.
That’s what we do here at Honeypot; create plans that make sense to you and for your business.
Internet and digital marketing are becoming increasingly critical to businesses of all levels. Ignoring your plan today will cost real dollars tomorrow. You might be asking yourself: why is a modern SEO plan important today? Let’s dig into that topic in more detail.
Why a Modern Search Marketing and Optimization Plan is Important.
Your potential customers are connected and able to conveniently access information like never before. Consider this for a moment: smartphones now account for 50% of all mobile phones in North America. Your ability to be found through the myriad of channels will be a key factor in your business’ marketing success.
Now more than ever before, we’re interconnected through these new and exciting technologies. Search engines have adapted to this reality and are a part of daily lives. Our job at Honeypot is to work with you to develop a modern and effective strategy which we can execute to grow your business.
What Does Any of This Really Mean for Your Business?
It means all of your potential consumers are walking around with incredibly powerful computers in their hands and pockets. More than ever, there is an immediacy to their lives. They have the ability to make decisions, contact, locate and interact with businesses in real time like never before.
Google understands where you are located when you issue a search; those results are relevant to you based on your physical location. A search in Palm Beach, Florida will deliver vastly different results for the same term than a search issued in Salt Lake City, Utah. The localization trend is growing and it’s an important feature for search engines because it’s an important feature to human beings.
The key to search results is personalization. Search engines now deliver results based on your activity in search, social and online. Gone are the days of “dominating search results” and a static notion of ranking #1. Admittedly, they are not gone but personalization is changing the way you see your world from search engine results. Adapting to the changes in personalized search means connecting with your consumers, fans, and advocates.
The world is going mobile. Whether it’s a tablet, smartphone, or wearable computer, the days of the desktop dominating a relatively small captive audience are gone. Being prepared for the mobile shift means your search strategy needs to take this consumer behavior into account. Your customers are on the road, looking for you when they are able to visit your location. If they can find your easily via their mobile device, you’ve opened up some obvious (and incredible) opportunities.
The Semantic Web. Often misunderstood and often explained incorrectly. You see the semantic web every day likely without realizing that you’re doing so. The semantic web is the display of information that is not described with the typical text reference to it. The semantic web is all about giving a search result “meaning”. For example, when I Google Leonardo Da Vinci, the results point to all of the contexts and ways that someone may want to learn about that historic figure. Gone are the days of the single webpage about Leonardo Da Vinci.
Our social networks are more than just a list of people we are connected to on a website. They reflect our real-world relationships within the context of life. Quite simply, the social web makes us individuals in the center of our own solar system. Search is embracing that and delivering results which are meaningful to us (individually) as people. Integrating social signals into your search strategy is something we need to consider very seriously.

What is the Process? What Can I Expect?
Step 1: Developing Your Search Marketing Plan
When we begin working together, we will learn about your current plan, your team, and your business. Getting to know each other is a critical first step in the process and sets the tone for your entire program.
As we begin to work with you, you will see a process unfold that is entirely practical and transparent. Our process is agile. We develop a plan that moves with you, adjusts to your business, and is flexible enough to grow as you grow and evolve. Own plan for you is documented, shared, and thoroughly explained to all members of your team.
We’ll work with your team to understand what is needed, what your priorities are and how we can work with you to create an effective program that will carry you forward through the ever-changing landscape of internet and digital search marketing.
Step 2: Defining the Strategy and Business Goals
Now that we’ve learned about your business and begun the process of developing your modern SEO strategy so it dovetails with your business goals, we’re ready to get down to crystallizing your plan in a clear and concise manner.
Our strategic playbook will lead us to develop tactics that will achieve our overall strategy. Our tactics will typically span the following functions:
- Technical search optimization on your website
- Information architecture
- Content development
- Online PR
As we define the tactics, we will insert these into an executable flight calendar, setting goals, release dates and defining our Key Performance Indicators for the program.
Clear and simple. Now it’s go-time…
Step 3: Developing the Search Marketing Backlog and Sprinting
We’ve mentioned the word “agile” as it applies to our methodology. The agile methodology was born out of a need for a superior software development process. With our background in software development, and as modern marketers, we have fully embraced an agile marketing process.
Gone is the quarterly SEO tome. See you later Gannt charts and the old world of “waterfall” SEO practices. We’ll develop 2-week timelines, sprint ahead, reviewing, analyzing and distilling analytics into action.
It’s fun, it’s effective. We’re looking forward to chatting with you about your goals.
