Targeted Content

Want to expand your reach online? Content is a method and a cornerstone to our strategy. Be useful, get found, dominate your competitors.


Earning High-value Backlinks

Small business SEO in particular, is where backlinks can play a huge factor in your ranking. Each quality backlink is like a vote for your site, increasing your ranking. We earn them rhythmically.


Technical SEO

20% of our small business SEO offering is 'technical SEO', though if it's done wrong – your website could have serious problems getting seen on Google. We know what matters, and can ensure it's correct.

Small Business SEO with a Clear Process at the Heart

We know how annoying it is to deal with a company that doesn’t CLEARLY communicate with you, and has a confusing process.

That’s why we made a very simple to understand dashboard that shows you what we did this month in our 3 key areas (content, backlinks, and technical SEO), and what we are doing next month.

Alongside our to-do’s, Google analytics graphs of both traffic and contacts from your site, with a year over year comparison. We boil it down to what matters – and push on the activities that lead to increases.

Questions and Answers about Small Business SEO

We start making changes that results can start appearing in weeks – but serious and systematic changes to your website take months, and the long-term results of SEO are more in the 6-9 months range.

SEO is not a short-term strategy – so make sure you've researched SEO, and understand what's possible and maybe even how difficult it is to do it yourself before you hire a company.

This is not to say you need to waste a year of your time sitting around making tweaks to your website before you hire experts.

Simply looking into the difficulty of getting heavy-duty results, often helps our ideal clients recognize how useful a company like ours is – systematically working on their behalf, and getting them more traffic and leads.

Just like you are likely an expert at what you do – hiring experts who do this 40 hours a week respects your time and allows you to get the best results in as little of your time as possible.

That's why we focus on a 'turn-key' system.

We know that your time is valuable, and try to only have you give input when we've completed some content (for your review), get feedback in key areas before implementing, and show you the results we've gotten so far each month.

As they say – if you do have "more time than money" at the moment, we strongly suggest trying your hand at some SEO first.

But – as so many of our small business SEO clients have experienced, when you have "more money than time", paying for experts who have already spent 10,000+ hours on a particular endeavor indicates a savviness and respect for "professionalism."

1. Search with Ahrefs.com a competitors website and see what their top keywords are. Change meta titles and descriptions on your site to front-load the most lucrative keywords (high volume, and would make sense for an ideal client to search in the process of making a buying decision) or blog about something on your site that they are ranking for, but you would like to.

2. Go get a link from Inc.com/verified by registering there for a nominal fee – and see what one link can do to push up your ranking a bit.

3. If you have WordPress – Install Yoast SEO on your website and ensure that your author pages, category pages, and tag pages are set to 'no-index', lest you have duplicate content diminishing your chances of ranking.

When I began searching for an SEO agency last year, I received a lot of generic proposals from SEO agencies who wanted our money but didn't show any dedication to learning our niche industry. Tim, on the other hand, came to the table armed with a list of keywords to go after, goals to reach, a knowledge of what our competitors were doing, and an eagerness to understand our industry. Since then, Tim has shown a deep commitment to our success and has gone above and beyond to make sure we reach the goals we set. In the last year, our company has experienced a 30.8% increase in conversions from organic search (3mos/3mos) and a 135.06% increase in page views from organic search (3mos/3mos). The conversation has shifted from "let's get more leads" to "we need to hire more employees to handle all this new business." Tim has been incredible to work with, and I'd recommend him highly to anyone looking to hire an SEO specialist.read more

“My company launched our completely revamped website and couldn't be happier with the way the site turned out, and our experience with Tim B Design. They took our old website with outdated graphics, poor sales results and transformed it into a modern, incredibly attractive and sales thriving site. In 6 short months we have seen a 300% increase in sales by online traffic, a greater return than we had ever imagined. Our product keywords are up over 350% and our website can easily be found on top of any major search engine. When we met with them to discuss the project, we were immediately impressed with how easy they were to communicate with—just real, down to earth, believable people that don't talk over your head with tech jargon. They listened and spent ample time understanding our products and message to make sure the site layout was exactly what we wanted.These days, I feel that people get to know your business through your website before they even walk through your door so it better be a good first impression. Our site brings in new clients every single day. The best part is that my website is so easy to use, I am able to edit content whenever I need to. It’s become such a great tool for my business. I am so in love with my branding, I receive compliments everyday. The Tim B Design team is amazing. They are creative, quick and so much fun to work with, I highly recommend them to any business.”Brad LorenceOwner, Banksystems Marketing Incread more

Tim B Design is exceptional to work with! He and his team have a great attitude, they've shown excitement in helping my business, and they are go getters! When I first contacted Tim on his website he responded to me almost immediately which was great. After our first face to face meeting I knew I wanted to work with him. I agreed to have them design my logo and build my website. In the process of doing that Tim thoroughly educated me on the importance of SEO which I knew very little about. There was absolutely no pressure to purchase anything while he was educating me but I decided to enter in an agreement for that too. Shortly after starting SEO they had availability to take over my social media accounts and I jumped at that opportunity. I put my full trust in them and they are doing great with all of it. Because of their work I've already seen growth in the number of sales leads generated by my website which is terrific! If you need help with any of these areas you need to contact Tim B design. Thank you Tim and Bea!read more

Tim and his team were collaborative, responsive, fast and delivered quality work on a tight timeline. The Wordpress pages they built are easy to update, mobile friendly and we plan on using the template they built for landing pages down the road. Tim also provided insightful guidance on SEO and lead generation best practices along the way.read more

Without even paying a dime, Tim looked at my google analytics account and my google console account and gave invaluable free advice. Although his services were not a good fit for my needs at this point, I would highly recommend his services for SEO and high raking on google searches. Hook Agency is the way to go!read more

HOOK made the complex topic of SEO far less intimidating. They were patient and understanding with our learning curve. They worked "with" us, educating us as to where the opportunities were. They identified what "they" could do for us and even more valuable, what "we" could and should be doing for ourselves. HOOK and their style of full transparency, had us feeling comfortable immediately and ultimately feeling like we had a trusted partner working for our best interests. We look forward to our future collaboration and success!read more

Super impressed with Tim. I had no idea how to find a web developer in my budget. Even though he was well out of my price range, he still very kindly took the time to suggest a few options and and walked me through how pro web developers operate. Class act! Thank you!!

Very impressed! Long story short, our company website that was hosted elsewhere somehow lost data and went down. When the hosting company failed to do anything about it Hook Agency didn’t hesitate to help. They went above and beyond to get us back up and running. They made us feel confident and comfortable with what they were doing and explained everything each step of the way. I would definitely recommend them!read more

We absolutely love our website. Hook Agency was very professional and provided us with a website that exceeded our expectations. We've also continued with their SEO services.

We considered several web-design firms before selecting Hook Agency to redesign a large portion of our company site, and we're incredibly happy with the results. Not only was the team able to create exactly what we wanted, they've come up with some great compromises between keeping our brand voice and SEO writing, providing solutions that I'm confident no other firm would be able to dream up. It's been a very collaborative process and we're seeing great outcomes. They've also provided technical support on some small web issues, which takes major headaches off our plates as a small business without a full-time IT department. We absolutely recommend them!read more

Tim and the entire Hook Agency team has been the exact partner my company needed for all things web design, SEO, and even digital marketing strategy. Was hesitant at first with the complexity of my industry, but they have far exceeded expectations with research and content development. Our SEO position and inbound leads were almost nonexistent. Within three months our website authority and position had drastically increased, and we were consistently receiving organic leads. Now we have closed our first inbound lead as an organization and are transitioning to let Hook manage our PPC. As a small business, Tim has been helped us get the best bang for our buck while getting to know our company and process to help achieve our goals. We have used several large and small SEO companies in the past, but Hook Agency's management has provided the first measurable difference and growth. Would highly recommend!read more
