I have questions.

Can I do SEO myself?

Yes, anyone can do SEO. However, it would take you approximately 100-200 hours (4-5 hours a day for 4-6 weeks) to learn to do it well.

What results can I expect?

While SEO typically takes 10-12 months to see measurable increases in traffic, we have seen churches see 10-12% improvement in organic traffic within 1-2 months.

SEO or Google Ads?

SEO work + Google Ad Grants are the best way to supercharge your church’s digital presence. Use the Google Ad Grant to reach more people within 2 weeks, and the SEO to set you up for long-term success.

What happens after 6 months?

We think of SEO like remodeling a house. Once the initial work is done, you don’t need to dedicate hours a week to maintaining good SEO presence.

We’ll set you up with training and checklists to make sure all new pages are SEO-optimized.

We set you up for SEO success in less than 6 months. If you’re ready to get your SEO moving, let’s schedule a discovery call to learn more about your goals and current site.
