What Exactly I Do
Doing everything makes you a jack of all trades, master of none.
I’m in the business of creating the finest SEO and web development projects in Columbus, Ohio. When a business owners comes looking to hire me, they usually want me to do one or both of the following: 1) create a custom site; and 2) drive traffic to their web site. If that’s what you’re looking for, I’m your guy. If you’re looking for a Social Media Specialist, App Developer, or Email Campaign Coordinator… Unfortunately, I’m not your guy. The good news is I have a wide network of business associates in many different areas. Let me know your needs.
I call attention to this because focus is such an integral part of who I am – and what we do in the SEO field. SEO is my specialty. My offer to you is to apply all I know to help grow your company. After all, your website should be your most productive “sales representative” on the planet.
I’d love to hear about what you’re working on. The best way to reach me is through the contact information right here. Let’s make it happen!
My early years and how I got started.
I’d like to tell you a little about my history as it’s relevant to the web and SEO. I was sick as a young child, and the doctors in Washington State couldn’t figure out what was wrong with me. Concerned about my health, my parents figured out that my condition was related to humidity in some way. So, they packed our belongings and we headed to Golden Valley, Arizona, a small town a couple of hours from Las Vegas, NV.
Since the closest public school was 30 minutes away in Kingman, AZ, the best alternative my parents thought, was to home school me and my siblings. Because of their fondness for technology, I learned all of the basics of programming at a very young age, I mean in elementary school! Computers, and programming, became by far my favorite past-time. I’m proud to say that I created my first program, a basic calculator, when I was 12 years old.
Where my love of being a nerd came from.
During the next phase of my programming life, I delved into video games. However, I was more focused on the code and creating games than actually playing them (though I did that plenty as well). I created various text-based and basic task games on my own, and looked at the code of other games for hidden secrets and tips for programming my own games. After games came websites, as I started creating specialized MySpace pages for friends. My first big career move in programming, though, was when I created a host of affiliate marketing sites to make some extra cash. I was off and running.
I had apparently built quite a little reputation for myself, because at this point I had numerous requests to build sites for other people. With that first check from my first website client, I ended up launching what’s now called Joseph Stevenson (a Columbus SEO Firm) Like my two brothers, who work for BP and Adobe, I was now officially part of the tech industry. Today, I continue to stand out from other Columbus SEO companies based on my high-quality work, and my attentiveness to basic and effective coding to deliver great SEO results for my clients.
I believe business should be earned, not expected.
A very undervalued trait in business is the ability to focus on trust and build it by keeping one’s promises. I’ve never expected clients to fall into my lap like some other Columbus SEO companies. I intend to be straightforward at all times. I’ll give you an example. Columbus SEO companies typically operate via contracts and package plans that look great on paper, but let the agency shortcut their clients so they can take on more accounts. They do this by outsourcing work instead of completing it themselves, and then take credit for third-party work as their own. In my book, it’s just a way to make a buck.
As a small Columbus SEO agency, I do not do this. Now all of these companies, myself included, will say they’re the best SEO firm in the area, so how do you know for sure? One thing you can do is look at their work instead of their sales pitch. After reviewing their past clients, and seeing their site designs first hand, you can usually tell if they’re for real or not. Developing this trust with my clients is a huge priority of mine, and I’m confident that after following my advice and really examining the facts, we can begin to trust each other and move forward together.
If you don’t do things right, don’t do them at all.
A common pitfall to watch out for in this industry is any SEO company that focuses on creating bulk content instead of producing high-quality content. This is because they rely on exploits that result in short term rank, but are unsustainable. We operate from a different standpoint, and focus on delivering work that will boost not only your ranking, but your site’s reputation. Here is our strategy:
1. Optimize current site: This step ensures your site is looking good, and the copy is optimized for the search engines to pick up.
2. Create additional content: After your site is ready, we begin to create the blog articles, press releases, and other content that is necessary to drive traffic to the site and increase its ranking.
3. Repeat the process: As your content continues to gain traction, and many sites and publications on the web publish it (along with links back to your site), the search engines recognize this and rank your site higher for the terms we’ve identified that most closely relate to what your prospects need.
Columbus SEO Companies that promise quick results and a significantly different approach from the above rely on trying to “play” the search engines. Any top-quality SEO firm will tell you that the content method is the way to go for both short and long term success.
Our specialty is Columbus SEO. We’ve been working for more than 12 years in this business and have achieved excellent results for our clients each year along the way. Arriving on this page is proof enough, as without a referral, you probably arrived here due to our Columbus SEO work.
Truth be told: This business is time-consuming. It requires applying every last bit of my knowledge of programming and content creation as I work on clients; sites. But, the impact I get to see up close and personal as sales begin to increase for our clients is overwhelmingly wonderful. You can count on Joseph Stevenson SEO Consulting to remain as one of the leading SEO companies in the Greater Columbus area.
