I have had an extremely positive experience with Elevate, Web Creation's SEO wing. As a digital marketer myself I have been extremely impressed with the improvements to our website's ranking - we are now on page one for hundreds of competitive industry terms relating to our cosmetic dentistry services, and in first position for around forty of our industry’s most valuable keywords.
This in itself would be cause for celebration, but there are countless SEO providers who use unstable "black hat" techniques which achieve only quick fix results (which ultimately vanish the next time Google updates its ranking algorithm). This is not the case with Elevate - their head SEO specialist Bogdan Popa is an extremely careful and conscientious SEO specialist, using only the safest and most stable best practice he achieves natural results which stand the test of time. These take slightly longer to achieve than with his black hat contemporaries, but believe me, it's well worth the wait if you want your web traffic to get higher and stay there.
Finally, what has really impressed me about Bogdan and Elevate is the level of communication and personal customer service I have received from the outset. From day one he has gone out of his way to keep me informed, paying close attention to the business needs I set out and meticulously tailoring all of his activities to ensure these are met. Elevate have provided me with an extremely detailed yet easy to understand "Rankings Tracker" allowing me to quickly observe our website's progress up the search engines on a daily basis. Bogdan himself has taken the time to answer any questions I have to my complete satisfaction (and I am a very demanding client) and never makes me feel like this is too much trouble. He will listen to my own suggestions, understand, discuss and action accordingly, providing me with advice on ways in which I can help our progress from my end (for example through social media or changes to our website's content). In this way, we have achieved solid progress which has resulted in higher rankings, more visits to our website, more enquiries and ultimately more revenue for our company.
I consider Elevate to be the benchmark by which I would rate any third party provider (be they SEO or not) but I think it will be a long time before any other provider manages to exceed the high standard this company has set.
I wasn't sure about the importance, or investment in SEO, but I can say without any doubt that we have increased revenue, simply by appearing higher up on Google. Kingston Stanley is a Dubai Marketing Recruitment company and we are now generating more candidates, able to find us. And also more clients giving us business. Its great!
I need to give you a brief history.
I had a basic website started in 2009 and I had a company called Add People to do our SEO. I thought they did a good job as I had page 1 listing for my keywords quite quickly and kept it for a few years. So when I started a new company with a new name I wanted to just replicate what I had done before.
I had some money saved for a better website, I did my research and found WebCreation AU, I spoke to a lovely chap called Darren who guided me through the sales process and then once I agreed to proceed with WebCreation AU writing the website, I got assigned a designer called Deepakra who patiently worked with all my requests and changes and proceeded to create an awesome (all singing and dancing) website. I was so excited and pleased with it and just wanted to show the world my lovely products on my new website.
I thought I would stick to the same thing that worked before so I contacted Add People who signed me up to a 6 month contract and said it should take 3 to 6 months before I would see results. So I waited patiently but at month 4 I noticed that not much improvements had happened so I contacted them only to be fobbed off with them blaming Google, my website and everything but “not” what they were or were not doing. They even sent me a website created by Google which gives your website a score regarding how accessible your site is for mobile devises and said my score of around 67% needed to be improved and this could be done by getting a new website! I was furious as I had already spend a fair penny on my new site, by saying this they sent off warning bells in my head about what their knowledge and motives.
I phoned WebCreation AU in despair to ask for advice and I was put through to a chap called Hayden who fast became my hero, giving me advise on how to tech talk to Add People and fight my corner. After speaking to Hayden and feeling calmer I thought I would check Add People and WebCreationAU’s website on the Google site checker and low and behold Add People site scored around 35% and WebCreationAU’s site scored around 95% which confirmed my suspicions that Add People didn’t know what they were talking about and just after getting people into long contacts and scaring them with tech talk into buying more of their services.
Armed with this and the information Hayden gave me I stood my ground and eventually got out of my contract early. What I appreciated most is that Hayden helped me while I was still in contract with Add People. So when I was free I gave Hayden a call and decided to give WebCreation AU a chance especially since they didn’t require me to sign up to any contract. 3 weeks later I have seen a huge jump in my rankings and I couldn’t be happier with the wonderful job they are doing. I would highly recommend them for both the Website Creation and SEO work. Working with then has been great even when I have had a worry they are quick to help sort it out.
I decided to go with Web Creation after looking at examples of websites they have previously created and liked the fact that they were all modern, stylish and well made. When my website was created they never let me down and I was really pleased with the outcome also always being notified and kept up to date. I decided after their advice to go with the SEO package to get my website further up google rankings and after an estimated time on how long it would take I received updates weekly on my progress. I am now on page 1 of google and really pleased with the SEO teams work. Great service - Mark
Have to say, these guys are great! I have had other companies working on our SEO with no real difference, but everything about this company is great. They are very polite and straight talking, great advice and really good results.
I would highly recommend them for any SEO work.
We are really pleased with the website and the SEO seems to be really working as we are getting lots more enquiries :-)
