SEO Services For Photographers
I am now accepting a limited number of SEO clients. I currently only offer SEO for photographers and those serving the photography industry.
Before we jump into the SEO services I offer, let me help you decide whether or not you need to hire an SEO at all!
Do I need to hire someone to fix my SEO???
SEO can be overwhelming. Things are changing all the time, and it is hard to constantly stay up to date with best practices.
However, I believe that once you understand the fundamentals of SEO, those fundamentals will rarely change. Optimizing for search engines is really all about optimizing for visitors. If you want to be at the top of Google, you need to actually be the best result!
If you want to get links to your website, you need to be writing content and taking photos that are worthy of getting links. If you try to manufacturer popularity, it will only get you so far.
This is why it is tricky to hire a company or agency to do your SEO. Asking someone to do all of your SEO for you is kinda like asking someone to make you popular (now I have the song from Wicked stuck in my head... maybe Glinda should start an SEO agency... lol).
The truth is, you don't want someone to do all of your SEO for you.
See, for you to get the BEST results from your website, it needs to be genuine. It needs to be YOU. It needs to showcase your work and your story in a way that connects with your target clients. There is no magic formula or keywords that can do that for you.
To get the best results, YOU have to be willing to do the hard work that your competitors won't do. You have to be willing to be consistent and keep your website updated. You have to be willing to constantly be networking and making new connections and sending people to your site.
What you actually need is someone to help you be more intentional and maximize your efforts.
You need to partner with someone who understands your business, your industry, your clients, and most importantly, someone who understands how search engines treat sites like yours.
You need someone who can save you hundreds of hours of research by helping you fix some technical issues and showing you the 20% of efforts that will yield 80% of the results for your site.
Then you need someone who can step in and help you implement that plan if you decide it is too confusing or time consuming to do on your own.
Why an in-depth audit is CRITICAL...
Here's a fact.
No two photography websites are exactly the same.
When I thought about how I wanted to offer SEO packages for photographers, I realized that I couldn't just come up with a list of things to fix that would apply to every site.
That list might totally skip the most important thing that YOUR website needs. Or I might end up charging you far too much when you didn't need half the things on the list.
The only way to know what your website needs is to dig into the specifics.
I run a large Facebook group where the main topic is SEO and websites for photographers. On an almost daily basis people ask questions that force me to start my response with "it depends on...". Without digging into the specific situation, it is so hard to know the RIGHT answer when it comes to SEO.
Each site is different, each city/market is different, the competition is different, website platforms are different, business goals are different. You get the idea.
When I do an in-depth audit, I start by researching your keywords and competition. I'll look at your past data (if you had Analytics and Search Console installed), then I do a deep crawl of your site to check for obvious errors. After that I'll manually review the site to see if there are any things that software may have missed.
By the end of all of this, I can give you a VERY specific set of actions that you can take to improve your site's performance. Not only performance in search engines, but also in converting visitors into customers.
You walk away from the audit knowing EXACTLY what needs to be done on your site.
What if I really don't know how to follow the plan?
Don't worry. I know SEO isn't everyone's favorite passtime like it is mine 😉 lol.
Often after I deliver an audit, people feel overwhelmed by all of the information. It's alot to take in.
But guess what? The audit doesn't end with a spreadsheet.
First of all, you get a video summary that tells you exactly what I found and what you should prioritize.
Second, you get at least 3 months access to the premium Fuel Your Photos membership, where you can follow video lessons on most things that will ever show up on an audit. You can also access the member forums where you can get support if you get stuck.
Finally, I am always available to help you implement the plan. I offer 2 simple options. You can hire me hourly, or purchase a package that includes an audit, Fuel Your Photos Membership, and a discount for buying more up front.
I decided to offer packages this way because some people only need a little help with the very technical things while other people want someone guiding them the entire way through a redesign.
I believe you should be charged a fair amount for what you need.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Ready to get started???

If you aren't sure whether you are ready for one of these packages, why not get a FREE 15 minute website review?
Other questions? Feel free to reach out at any time using my contact form or by emailing me directly: firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you don't know which package to choose, my recommendation is to start with the audit. You can always upgrade to one of the other packages after you find out how much help you need!
