OVERVIEW

SEO services increase a website’s search engine rankings by optimising its technical configuration, content relevancy, and link popularity.

Search engines promote SEO strategy that raises page ranking and user search experience for your photography business by offering pertinent information. The use of appropriate phrases in titles, meta descriptions, and headlines (H1), as well as the use of keyword-rich descriptive URLs instead of numerical ones and the inclusion of schema markup to specify the content of the page, are just a few examples of the best practises for SEO for photographers.

Outreach & Linkbuilding

The amount of different websites that link to your photography website is frequently recognised as one of the most essential ranking factors, if not THE most important ranking factor. A1 SEO has established a sizable network of credible online resources that we can approach for link development and improve search engine results.

If your competitor's photography websites are ranked highly by search engines, they will be building links on a large scale. However, making connections takes effort. As we are experts in link building and local SEO services for photographers, let A1 SEO manage your photography website to increase organic traffic.

Local SEO

Local photography SEO services allow you to attract customers who are searching for local products and services. Two search types—local searches and location-based keywords—are the focus of local search engine optimisation.

Local photography websites can easily be ranked. We at A1 SEO adhere to a procedure that has been improved over the previous ten years. There are only simple tasks involved, no SEO black magic. When properly carried out, this method will improve your photography business website's rankings on location-based SEO keywords as well as in the local map pack and local listings.

On-Page SEO

On-page SEO is about how each part of a page affects its search engine optimisation. Most of the time, you have direct influence over these factors, and you can change them right away.

By giving on-page SEO the attention it requires, Google can better determine the relevancy of your pages and connect your content to popular search terms for photographers and photography businesses.

SEO Audits

A1 SEO has SEO audits down to a science. We have audited hundreds of websites over the past five years and identified the primary actionable sticking points in each one.

Using a variety of tools, we analyse the technical, on-page, and off-page (link-building) aspects of your photography services website to determine its overall health.

A1 SEO's audit is the ideal starting point if you want to know where your website stands with Google and receive actionable advice on how to improve its search engine rankings.

SEO Consulting & Training

Your staff can enhance the search performance of your own website, but they may lack experience in SEO services. Strategic direction is a field in which your internal team may excel, and employing an SEO specialist is costly. You may be able to gain enough organic traffic to gain some new clients, but you'll need an SEO expert to help you gain meaningful traffic to your most important landing pages.

A1 SEO is aware that many large companies want to develop the skills of their employees and rely solely on external firms for strategic planning and SEO services for photographers. We have trained some of the largest internal marketing teams in the world, including FMCG, B2B, and B2C teams, giving us insight into relevant keywords and SEO for photographers.

Technical SEO

Technical SEO services for photographers include the analysis of your website for a search engine. It is used to optimise your site for Google. Technical SEO (and on-page SEO) is a foundation for scaling link-building and content marketing.

Sites that provide Google with more information about themselves rank higher. It is equivalent to handing your professor who speaks English a 10,000-word Spanish dissertation. If the examiner cannot understand it, the content is meaningless.

Technical SEO is effective, but it is contingent upon how rapidly A1 SEO can begin working on your website.

Technical SEO provides us with total control. The results of link-building campaigns are immediate. Google takes time to reevaluate the quality of your website, but you should see an increase in rankings in search engine results once the work is complete.

White Label SEO

A1 SEO oversees the SEO strategies of a number of the largest digital marketing agencies in the United Kingdom. We recognise that client personnel, onboarding, and account management can be challenging. A1 SEO's short-, medium-, and long-term options relieve the strain on the new client.

Our white-label SEO work focuses on link development, which results in high-quality leads. Most organisations lack the time and expertise to perform this task. We offer technical SEO, on-page SEO, keyword research, more organic traffic, and reporting for agencies that do not have their own SEO team or are undergoing personnel changes.

If you can outsource a significant portion of your SEO strategy, you can accept more clients from your target audience for your photography businesses without having to rush to employ more people. We are always available for phone calls and in-person meetings with the agency or final client.

OUR PROCESS

1

Onboarding

Once your contract is signed, we will begin our onboarding process. Our onboarding process kicks off the entire campaign. From there, we will brief you on your website's technical, on-page and off-page audits. We will also create your own tailored reporting dashboard so you can have complete oversight of your SEO strategy's performance. At this stage, we also ask you to fill out a couple of forms to help our internal teams put together a strategy.

2

Strategy Call

After the onboarding stage, you will already have deliverables being completed against your account, and the clock will be ticking towards increased rankings. By now, our team will have spent a considerable amount of time familiarising themselves with your industry. They will reach out to arrange a deep-dive call to go through our proposed strategy and gain feedback to allow us to tailor this strategy further to meet your SEO goals. We expect all four clients to commit to regular catch-ups on-going, ideally on a bi-weekly basis.

3

Niche Analysis

Now we can start cooking with gas! Armed with the knowledge gained from the onboarding process and our strategy call, our team of SEO experts will conduct an in-depth niche analysis, covering every topic and sub-topic within your industry. From here, we will create a master database containing each page of your website and what is required to start moving the needle in an extremely granular way. This process takes anywhere from 20 to 500+ hours!

4

Link Building Strategy

Whilst your granular page-level strategy is being devised, our team of in-house digital PR experts will crawl through your Google Search Console account to find the biggest opportunities for external links. We look for pages where links will move the needle in a big way, getting you the best possible ROI for your budget. Our team has the ability to deliver scalable off-page SEO strategies from day 5!

5

Technical SEO Sprint

During the niche analysis and early link-building stages, our technical SEO team will be in the background working their magic. We run benchmarks for all our clients' websites against a 100+ point checklist and action any anomalies we find. We also do a deep dive within Google Search Console, looking for query gaps, indexing issues, broken average position lines, and much, much more. This is a sprint that is repeated every single month.

6

SEO Scale Up

The previous steps in our SEO for photographers process tend to take 1-3 months. By this point, you will begin to see movement in the SERPs and will have a good idea of how we work and operate. All of the systems we have put in place for your business to date are designed to scale up nicely. At this stage, it is a case of being aggressive with publishing new content and optimising older pieces of content, building links, and keeping on top of the website's technical search engine optimisation.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

HOW LONG DOES SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMIsATION (SEO) TAKE TO WORK?

This depends on many factors, including your company's industry and keyword competition. SEO for photographers takes time. SEO should yield results in 6–12 months. Results are traffic and lead or conversion increases. Any business investing in SEO should expect to see progress within this timeframe, even if you haven't reached your goal.

How does link building help SEO?

One strategy in search engine optimisation (SEO) is link building, which sends a message to search engines like Google that your website is an authoritative resource. This means that sites with more backlinks will likely rank higher in search results.

What is on-page optimisation in SEO?

On-page optimisation, also known as on-page SEO, is the process of enhancing a website's search engine rankings through changes made on the page itself. Measures to enhance the meta description and title tags specific to the photography industry are examples of this.

What does a Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) specialist do?

When a website is tested, analysed, and modified by an SEO specialist to be search engine friendly, it rises in the rankings on major search engines like Google and Bing.

In order to increase website traffic, lead volume, and brand awareness, an SEO expert will optimise each page of a website to ensure relevant search results and create a positive user experience. In other words, an SEO Specialist is the same as any other marketer, whether they work in digital or traditional media, in that their ultimate goal is to increase revenue for the company through an SEO marketing strategy.

An SEO Specialist can do wonders for a business by increasing its website's Google rankings on the search engine results pages through the use of pertinent photography keywords and SEO tools like Google Analytics. Some may also collaborate with other members of a marketing team to create new initiatives or improve the management of social media accounts in an effort to increase user engagement and traffic.

What services does A1 SEO Offer?

A1 SEO offers scalable SEO services, focusing on link building, SEO keywords, content optimisation, technical SEO, local SEO, SEO consulting, and SEO training.

Do you specialise in any particular sectors?

Simply put, no, we do not specialise in any one sector. That being said, the majority of our business is in eCommerce SEO, where businesses are selling directly through a website. However, we have helped build dozens of high 6- and 7-figure lead generation businesses.

Why do I need A1 SEO when I can hire a specialist in-house?

At some point, it may be better to hire someone in-house, but in our experience, that only happens when your annual SEO service costs are more than £70,000.

Using a third-party agency has a lot of benefits, like having a team of experts who are up-to-date on digital marketing, SEO advice, and the latest trends and developments in search technology, instead of just one person trying to keep up with everything. Also, that one person working in-house gets called into meetings, can call in sick, and needs at least a month off every year.

With A1 SEO, you get a group of people, not just one. You gain experience in many different fields, not just your own, and as we invest in training and development, you get better employees who bring more value to your business more often through search engine results and SEO service.

Not only do we take away the risk of hiring the wrong person, but we are also likely to be much cheaper than hiring someone in-house, and most importantly, you can trust us as an agency. Trust, Loyalty, and Collaboration (TLC) are the core of how we do business, and the success of our customers is always our top priority.

Why is it so important for SEO to have a content strategy?

Because people always have questions. They type them into search engines and hope to find what they are looking for. That can only happen if the search engines can find the right answer, though. We help you come up with the best answers and marketing strategies to be discovered online.

The best SEO photography content strategies are those that focus on getting you seen in the search engine results pages that bring the best customers to your great website. It's not about being popular or following the latest trend. Instead, it's about being relevant, easy to reach, and there when customers need you.

The good news is that we've been working on SEO photography content strategies since long before they became trendy, so we know what it takes to get your website to rank in search results for the photography industry.

Do you offer quick fixes and "black hat" SEO?

Never. When it comes to digital marketing, search engine optimisation, content creation, reputation management, and link building, we always use ethical and "white hat" methods for the best SEO results. Quick fixes and fake boosts are just a waste of time, and we don't do them.

You can be "number one" for specific keywords in a few weeks, but if it is a very popular keyword, the only way to do this is to trick the search engines into showing your website's content on the first page. Some companies think this is a good solution, but the search engines always figure it out and punish the site. It's short-sighted and doesn't work, so we don't do it.

How much do you charge for your services?

Starting at £1,200+VAT per month, we offer a range of SEO services. We have a variety of packages that will work for most growing businesses, depending on their needs. Get a quote from us and a free review of your site's content by contacting us directly.

Who is A1 SEO owned by?

A1 SEO is an independent family-run business.  We are a limited company. Registration number is SC699214.

Why should I work with an SEO agency like A1 SEO instead of an agency that does everything?

There are a lot of agencies out there that say they offer "full service" and can do everything. From what we've seen, this is almost never the case. Most of the time, they will be good at some things but not so good at other things. They will say they can do all services, but they will outsource some of them without you knowing. We're different because we only offer the best SEO for photographers.

How long are your contracts?

Monthly rolling with a 6-week cancellation policy. We don't tie you into 12 or even 6-month contracts –we are that confident in our abilities.
