Chrysalis Creative Home Staging
Chrysalis Creative Home Staging was a one person small business that that understood the importance of having a web site on page one of a google search. Ellen already had a good social media presence and wanted to expand her web site presence. We followed our process of doing a complete competitive analysis and redesigned her web site to target the keywords and phrases she wanted to rank for, achieving page one results in a couple months.

McIntyre Crane and Rigging is a one of Alberta’s biggest Crane companies based out of Calgary and needed to rank on the first page. When Dallas came to me he was already ranking well but wanted to make sure that he stayed high and wanted to expand and rank well for Alberta and Western Canada. We have been working on getting him to page one in these areas and have accomplished the goal in a short period of time, he is ranking on page one in all areas that we targeted.
Lynchpin Global Energy
Lynchpin resources is a startup global energy company based out of Calgary and the Cayman Islands that had an urgent need for an internet presence not only to promote their company but to use as customer and employee portal. The website design is simple but very effective. The need for SEO is not immediate but the building blocks for a strong web presence are there and the SEO component can be expanded successfully at a moments notice.
Envirotech Engineering is a medium sized business that has been operating for over 20 years in Alberta.

Build My Brand Consulting
Build my Brand Consulting is a new start up that is looking for web presence in an area that has strong competition. When using Search Engine Optimization to rank high for certain key phrases the level of competion must be considered, and this is a good example. “Brand Building” is a very competitive term and there are a lot of very successful companies already in the field. It is sometimes unrealistic to expect to rank on the first page quickly when starting out. Instead, ranking with slightly less competitive terms is a good idea. Once the less competitive terms are successful it is much easier to increase ranking with the more competitive terms.
