Our Services

As an SEO company, Hanapin Marketing will ensure that your website is visible by search engine crawlers, which can improve your organic rankings and increase your organic traffic.

We use a step-by-step process to achieve higher rankings with our SEO services:

  1. Comprehensive SEO Keyword Research – This is the cornerstone of any effective SEO initiative. While Hanapin Marketing will never guarantee #1 search engine rankings, our team will conduct in-depth keyword research and build a strong, strategic foundation to help your website rank for relevant, targeted search queries.
  2. Keyword Optimization – We then put your target keywords to work through meta data optimization, code optimization, and SEO content optimization.
  3. Advanced SEO – Once your site has been optimized, we also offer advanced SEO services focusing on link building, linkbait strategy and execution, and directory submissions.
  4. Web Analytics Consulting and Implementation – The key to understanding the results of any SEO strategy is constant analysis of a website’s performance. Hanapin Marketing will install Google Analytics to review baseline visitor behavior.  Hanapin will use this data to further optimize your content, deepen your audience engagement, and improve the overall performance of your website.

Communication and Reporting

Communication is key, so you will have a dedicated Account Executive that will work with you to create a customized communication strategy ranging from weekly phone calls to customized in-depth monthly reports to ensure that you are kept abreast our progress.

Whether you’ve decided it’s time for a new kind of professional PPC firm, or you’re just curious to see what Hanapin Marketing can do for you, we’re ready to work with you to create a custom proposal to meet your PPC needs. With three simple steps, you’ll be on your way to Search Marketing success with Hanapin Marketing:

  2. With Hanapin Marketing, there are no canned proposals or form contracts. Once we have your background information, we get to work preparing a custom proposal to meet your needs. We know budget is a consideration for every company, so don’t worry, we keep your budget in mind as we put together your custom SEO proposal.
  3. A custom proposal communicates more than just cost. We lay out, in detail, the work we do, what you can expect from us, and how we get started. Costs are broken down so you can see exactly where your investment is going and there’s no tricky fine print or confusing pricing schemes. Things aren’t carved in stone so if you want more, or see things you want to change, let us know. We’ll work with you to make your proposal reflect exactly the SEO project you envision.
