What Exactly I Do
Doing everything makes you a jack of all trades, master of none.
As a Jacksonville business professional, my main disciplines are SEO and web development. It usually happened like this. A business approaches me to help improve their website’s structure, as well as its performance as a lead-generating, sales-generating entity. I often optimize the back end of the site, so that a company’s ideal prospects are able to find the sites on Google, and other search engines.
Though my own skills are in these areas, I do have several friends and fellow professionals who specialize in other online services, including Email Marketing, App Development, and Social Media. In addition to the SEO work that I perform, I often make personal introductions to companies I know that excel in these areas. It’s just not what I do.
We would love to start a SEO conversation. The best way to reach me is by using one of these methods:
My early years and how I got started.
I was raised about two hours away from Las Vegas, in a place called Golden Valley, Arizona. We moved there when I was 2 years old, due to a sickness I had as a child. My doctors in Washington State told my parents that they thought the humidity in the area was making my condition worse. So, my parents moved us to the desert, where there’s barely any humidity at all.
I was a home-schooled child, since Kingman had the closest public school to Golden Valley, and it would have been a 30-minute bus ride each way. At home, in addition to the standard subjects, my parents had me work on basic programming using GW Basic and other languages on our computer. When I was 12, I used that computer to create my first of many programs, a basic calculator.
Where my love of being a nerd came from.
After my first major milestone of creating a calculator, I branched into video games like the rest of the kids my age. The difference for me, though, was that I programmed in addition to playing. The first games I made were adventure games, text-based games, that kind of thing. I also like digging into the code of other games to find hidden cheats. Picture the hacker from your average James Bond movie, but 20 years younger and without a British accent.
After games, I experimented with MySpace and other similar sites, designing some pages for my friends. Soon after, I launched a network of affiliate sites focused on generating ad revenue and referrals. It was at this time in my life that more and more requests began flooding in for me to create websites for others, which I did in 2007, officially starting Joseph Stevenson (a Jacksonville SEO Firm). Like my two brothers, who work for BP and Adobe, yet another person in my family had joined the ever-changing tech industry. Today, though there are other Jacksonville SEO firms, I continue to succeed because of my high-quality work and the solid programming background I received as a child.
I believe business should be earned, not expected.
Several Jacksonville SEO companies have a habit of not being totally honest with their clients. That goes directly against what I’m about, and I want to share with you what I mean. These Jacksonville SEO companies usually look to secure year long contracts, or bundle in some kind of package deal. They do this so that they can then outsource the work so they don’t have to do it themselves. They take their cut. Basically, they’re telling you that they’re doing the work, then white labeling the work of less-qualified, cheaper firms. Let me make this crystal clear: That’s not the way I do business.
Every Jacksonville SEO company is going to tell you that they’re the best. I’m sure I’ve said that on occasion, too. But, one way you can tell if a company is for real or not is to look at the work they’ve done. If their website designs rock, and their clients are happy, then its a good sign that they’re legit. I’m confident that if you check out my work, that you’ll be satisfied that we do good work and keep our promises. Trust must be earned over time.
If you don’t do things right, don’t do them at all.
When looking at hiring an SEO company, you have to make certain that they don’t adopt the unfortunate practice of focusing on the sheer number of clients they can acquire as opposed to delivering high-quality work. SEO companies like this also focus on the amount of content they put out, usually a few blogs and a bunch of site links, instead of the quality of the content. In contrast, our company delivers top-tier, purposeful content, rather than piles of useless content that won’t get you anywhere with the search engines. This is our process:
1. Current site assessment: In this phase, we review the content already on the site, mainly the copy, and make adjustments when necessary to create a site deserving of a high ranking on Google, and other search engines.
2. Create content: During this time-consuming but very important phase, we develop various content that we can use on and off your site to drive traffic and increase views. Examples of this content include Blogs, Social Media messaging, Press Releases, and various other methods. As this content is picked up, it will generate traffic and the the pages we’ve identified on your site as targets will rise in the SERPs (search engine results pages).
3. 3) Repeat: Each piece of content that we release will increase the ranking of your site as more sites and publications begin to publish it – with links back to your site and sales messages. This is by far the most effective method of increasing the rank of a website and sustaining it. Any Jacksonville SEO company that tells you otherwise is utilizing loopholes and shortcuts for short-term, bogus gains. Quality SEO companies use the content method, which I’ve embraced wholeheartedly in our business operations and strategy.
Our company specializes in Jacksonville SEO. For 12 years and counting, we have been positioning websites on the search engines with great success. If you happened on this site without a referral, chances are you did so because of our proven SEO methods. Simply stated, they work.
I find SEO very rewarding. Each new success confirms that I’m running my firm the right way. Other digital marketing companies in Jacksonville may make claims they have what it takes to improve rankings. Suffice it to say, that may not be the case. Joseph Stevenson SEO Consulting is the one of the finest companies in the Jacksonville area that focuses solely on SEO.
