Can you do the SEO for us?
Yes and no. I am not the traditional SEO consultant. I specialize in putting together the SEO strategy, then, together I train and work with you or your team to implement and do the work. I specialize in empowering you and your team members to do the SEO themselves and keep SEO in-house.
Can you guarantee we’ll see SEO results?
I can guarantee this – if you do the work, you’ll see results. The type of results depend on how realistic your expectations are, how competitive your market is, if you follow the plan, and how quickly we can execute. I cannot guarantee that your website will be on the first page of Google. In general, you should plan on 3 months minimum (recommended 6 months) from the time we start working together.
How are you different than other SEO marketers?
I do SEO very differently as I have a hybrid method that teaches and coaches you on foundational SEO principles as I believe in distilling knowledge and empowering you. I want to train you on how to integrate SEO into the marketing mix of activities and get more bang for your buck.
We have a budget, can you work within it?
Yes. Each brand has a different story to tell. This requires a great amount of time and dedication. Additionally, I conduct in-depth research and analysis to understand your business and your consumers to bring your objectives to life. With these factors in mind, a competitive market landscape, custom SEO strategy, and bigger expectations can cost more. I do offer a variety of levels and options for all my services to try to accommodate all types of budgets as much as I can. If you have an idea in mind, please don’t hesitate to contact me firstname.lastname@example.org. I welcome all requests, and I’m always up for a discussion.
Do you work with international clients?
Yes indeed! Over the past 2 years I have worked with brands all across the United States, and as far away as Melbourne. Today’s technology makes it easy to get to know one another and stay in contact. I use Skype, Slack or Google+ Hangouts to chat, and I am very diligent with my email, ensuring your project gets the attention it deserves.
What is the process of your work?
Fairly simple actually. Once you contact me with a few details, such as project parameters and a timeline, I’ll schedule a consult (either face-to-face or via Skype) to get to know you better. We’ll discuss your project, pricing, and map out any deliverables that are needed. Once we come to agreement, I’ll put together a proposal. Then, once I receive the proposal back and signed, you will kindly complete the deposit/first invoice to hold your spot in my queue and I’ll get to work! I will also need you to complete a detailed questionnaire.* please note this deposit is nonrefundable
All time estimates are dependent upon the individual project, number/complexity of revisions, client response timeliness, and my current booking schedule.

How far in advance should I contact you about starting a project?
This largely depends on your project, but it’s safe to assume that the larger the scope, the earlier you should contact me. I find it’s best to start a dialogue, set realistic expectations, and work towards a deadline.
What experience do you have?
I’m glad you asked. While my portfolio at Hello Anna Branding & Co. is modest (but growing), I have actually been doing this professionally for over 5 years. First working in medium-sized and reputable advertising agencies, and now in our 2nd year as a company, I’ve kept our hands busy working with clients both small and large. We’ve developed SEO campaigns, brand identities, social channels, web design, blogs, business cards, Facebook campaigns and everything in between.
What is your pricing structure?
I am very happy to put together a custom quote for your individual project. Please note that I try to accommodate all types of budgets. Please contact me and together, we’ll put together something based on your needs.
What are typical turn times?
Please check out how my process works for details on turnaround times. Thanks!
Are initial deposits refundable?
Please keep in mind that all deposits are nonrefundable. This is my way of securing your spot in my upcoming queue. I often plan my projects several months ahead of time and scheduling is the essential to making sure I give all of my clients the proper amount of time their project deserves. With that, I often turn away clients for your reserved time slot. Therefore, if you back out it may leave an empty spot that could have been given to another project. Our nonrefundable deposit is our way of securing payment and making sure my clients are serious about moving forward with their project. Thanks for understanding!
What are your invoicing methods?
I graciously accept Paypal payments or written checks made out to Hello Anna Branding & Co. Most project payments are due in two parts, the first half payment is due upon booking and to hold your spot in our queue. The second half of the project payment is delivered at project completion, before any final project deliverables are provided. I offer monthly payment plans for ongoing projects. All monthly payment due dates will be detailed in your proposal.
Do you have office hours?
I typically respond to emails and calls anywhere from 24 hours to 72 business hours. I do my best to respond as promptly as possible and response time usually depends on my work load at that time. I do prefer to schedule all calls, Skype, and Google Hangout sessions in advance so that I may plan to be available and allot the proper amount of time for our conversation.
Don’t be afraid to tell me about your project timeline and budget. I’m straightforward with my pricing and abilities so helps knowing where you’re coming from so I can hit your target.
