What is SEO? What do professional SEO agencies and consultants do?

Before the Internet, the only way to reach your customers was the written word.

Some marketers wrote letters.

Others specialized in magazine ads.

And a few carved their niche with radio commercials.

No matter their medium, these lords of language begin by writing words that sell. Once they crafted their copy, they’d spread their message by buying ads.

Today, there are more marketing channels to spread a message online, including:

  1. Search engine optimization (SEO).
  2. Google, Bing, or Facebook pay-per-click ads (PPC).
  3. Social media marketing (SMM).
  4. Email marketing.
  5. Webinars.

And the list goes on...

One of the beauties of effective SEO is it’s more scalable than hiring a salesman. Once you increase your organic traffic, you’ll continue to get ongoing traffic for months and years to come.

What exactly is SEO?

SEO is the art and science of increasing quality traffic to your website through search engines.

SEO is about providing valuable information for potential customers. Then with the information, you can format it for search engines like Google, Yahoo!, and Bing.

Professional SEO agencies and consultants are experts at bringing traffic.

I respect many of these agencies, including Growth Machine, Siege Media, Single Grain, Web Profits, and Orainti.

And I’m friends with these SEO consultants too. This includes John-Henry Scherck, Andy Crestodina, and Nigel Stevens. (And yes, we’re more than Facebook friends).

The problem is this...

What do you do if you need more than traffic? What if you need to...

This is why most professional SEO companies prefer working with established startups. Because if you haven’t nailed these fundamentals, you’ll get traffic that does not convert.

My passion is to help 1,000 entrepreneurs go from idea to scale. I knew how to bring organic traffic as fast as 2-6 weeks. But how could I get that traffic to convert?

And then it clicked.

What if I combined the powers of SEO with copywriting?

Startups will get the traffic they need with SEO. And with copywriting, they’d improve their positioning and messaging to turn more visitors into customers.

I’m confident you will unlock the potential to 10x your investment in Growth Ramp’s services. So much so, I guarantee it.

In fact:

  1. I won't take a dime of your money if I'm not 100% confident you will make 10x your investment with the Growth Ramp Gap Analysis™.
  2. In the unlikely event I'm wrong and the Gap Analysis™ does not reveal the potential for 10x ROI on your investment, I'll return every penny.

In four weeks, you'll delight in your results or get 100% of your money back (more on the Gap Analysis™ further down this page).

We’re often booked 3-8 weeks out. We add new clients add on a first-come, first-served basis.

How will an SEO agency put more money in my pocket?

Let’s pretend you own a car dealership. Because whether your business is online or in-person, the principles are still the same.

A great car salesman sells 20 cars a month. If your dealership grosses $2,500 per car, you will make $600,000 from this salesman (20 cars/month X 12 month X $2,500 = $600,000). 

Not bad, not bad.

How much money would you make hiring an SEO copywriter over a salesman? Let’s do the math.

Organic traffic takes time to ramp up. But let’s say your total traffic looks like this:

Month Monthly Traffic Year 1’s Traffic
Month 1 250
Month 2 350
Month 3 490
Month 4 686
Month 5 960
Month 6 1,345
Month 7 1,882
Month 8 2,635
Month 9 3,690
Month 10 5,165
Month 11 7,231 24,684
Month 12 10,124 34,808

You may experience more success or less, depending on your market conditions, your marketing budget, and other events. These numbers are for illustrative purposes only.

If in month one you get 250 visitors and you assume a 40% growth rate, you’ll have 10,124 visitors per month and 34,808 total visitors.

Let’s also say 1% of people buy a car from your website because of your SEO copywriter’s work. This means she would sell 463 cars in year one (34,808 X 1% = 348).

With a profit of $2,500 per car, you’ll make $870,000 hiring the SEO copywriter (348 cars/year X $2,500). Let’s say you still need to invest $60,000 for a salesman to close those deals. Subtract your costs and you make off with a cool $810,000.

Here’s where SEO copywriting can get real valuable (and spicy):

Watch what happens in year two…

Month Monthly Traffic Year 1’s Traffic
Month 13 12,149
Month 14 14,579
Month 15 17,494
Month 16 20,993
Month 17 25,192
Month 18 30,230
Month 19 36,276
Month 20 43,531
Month 21 52,237
Month 22 62,685
Month 23 75,222 390,588
Month 24 90,266 480,854

You may experience more success or less, depending on your market conditions, your marketing budget, and other events. These numbers are for illustrative purposes only.

In year two, the growth rate is 20% because bursts of traffic are less likely to move the needle. You’re also starting at 10,124 a month, not zero.

Let’s again say 1% of these people buy a car. This means your SEO copywriter would sell 4,809 cars in year two (480,854 X 1% = 4809). Selling 4,809 cars at a profit of $2,500 each is a lotta money! $12,022,500 to be exact.

Add this to year one’s profit of $810,000, subtract your salesman’s salary of $60,000, and you now have $12,772,500 over two years. If the salesman by himself sold another 20 cars/month, his two-year profit is now at $1,200,000.

After two years, your car dealership will profit $12,772,500 by hiring an SEO copywriter. That’s over 10.6 times more money than what you would make hiring a salesman alone!

So rather than paying for a sales force first, smart entrepreneurs often invest in an SEO copywriter to generate traffic and turn words to gold.

How do you measure the results of your SEO services?

The challenge selling products in person is you limit sales by the number of customers nearby.

But with a website, you can reach any potential customer with the internet. Does this mean working with an SEO agency your profit is near limitless?

It is, if… and that’s a big if… you have copywriting words that convert into sales. That’s where some SEO agencies and consultants get stuck. They’re excellent drivers of traffic. But not always sales.

So what’s the catch?

The downside of SEO is it usually takes more time to ramp up. This is why most SEO agencies will tell you, “It takes six to 12 months before SEO starts working.” I don’t know about you, but...

Once you publish our content, I want you to see more organic in two to six weeks, rather than six to 12 months.

Here’s what happened with a business that had no traffic to start:

The client asked for the numbers to not show the numbers. Yet you can still see how fast this client got organic traffic.

Lo and behold, they got signs of organic traffic in two weeks. And they saw permanent growth on May 27th, three months and 16 days after starting with Growth Ramp. That’s a lot faster than six to 12 months, isn’t it?

After experimenting, I figured out how to get organic traffic even faster.

Here’s another site that saw organic traffic increase dramatically in three weeks:

The client asked for the numbers to not show the numbers. Yet you can still see how fast this client got organic traffic.

And the beauty is, this client is seeing more organic growth after we left.

What will all this traffic mean in more revenue?

It takes time for these pages to get their full traffic value. Yet...

It’s not uncommon to find opportunities between $853,000 and $2,190,000 per year with the Growth Ramp Gap Analysis™.

Why is the potential value you’ll receive such a large range?

The reason is that your business is unique. There are different market environments, client abilities, and other influences that may affect your results.

This is why I guarantee the Gap Analysis™ and why your potential value is at least 10x what you pay for our services (more on that in a moment).

And while a pay-per-click agency needs to buy data, we’re off to the races getting you more customers. That’s the power of combining SEO with copywriting.

Apply to Work With Growth Ramp

We’re often booked 3-8 weeks out. We add new clients add on a first-come, first-served basis.

What is your guarantee to get those results?

As I stated earlier, it’s common to find opportunities between $853,000 and $2,190,000 per year with the Gap Analysis™.

The Gap Analysis™ is a $3,000 deposit, which you may apply as credit for our full project together.

What kind of guarantee am I willing to make you will get those results?

After your Gap Analysis™, one of three events will happen next:

  1. You love the Gap Analysis™ and decide to do the work yourself. If this is the case, we’ll wish you well. And we’d ask you to keep in touch to let us know how you’re doing.
  2. You love the Gap Analysis™ and ask to become our client. We’ll do the heavy lifting to execute, maximize, and profit from the Gap Analysis™. Every single Growth Ramp client gets results. That’s not an exaggeration. Every single client.
  3. In the unlikely event the Gap Analysis™ was not valuable, I will send you a full refund of $3,000.

I could care less about the $3,000. This is a way for me to “filter” out time-leeches.

In fact, if you do not find 10x the value in your Gap Analysis™, I’ll give your $3,000 back right after hanging up on our call.

If you become a Growth Ramp client, I’ll apply your $3,000 deposit to your balance.

Think about it like this. You invest 45-90 minutes of your time on our first call and the review. In the “worst-case scenario,” you are not out a penny.

What other marketing agencies do you know would do this for you? None that I found (and I’ve checked over 300 agencies).

So why would I offer you this zero-risk investment?

Simple. I enjoy helping fellow entrepreneurs make a greater impact while achieving more financial success. And if I’m not helping you work towards your goal, I don’t deserve your money. Plain-’n’-simple.

What is Growth Ramp’s SEO copywriting process?

Copywriting is the art of finding profitable words that sell. SEO is finding the right profitable words and scaling.

First, I’ll talk about our SEO process, then I’ll share our copywriting process.

What is your SEO process?

In 1966, Eugene Schwartz wrote one of the most pivotal books on marketing: Breakthrough Advertising.

Schwartz recognized there are five distinct customer buying mindsets:

  1. Most Aware: Your customer knows your product and he’s ready to buy. Give him a buy button and he’ll push that sucker faster than a teen at an arcade.
  2. Product-Aware: Your customer knows what you sell and often what the competition sells. But she isn’t sure it’s right for her. At this stage, you need to position your product against the competition.
  3. Solution-Aware: Your customer knows the result he wants. But he may not know of your product, or that it provides the results he’s looking for.
  4. Problem-Aware: Your customer senses she has a problem. But she doesn’t know what’s the right solution.
  5. Unaware: Your customer does not know of their pain, even though he has this problem.

As you may have noticed, the customer who is most aware is most likely to buy from you. Someone who is unaware of their problem is the least likely to buy from you.

So the goal is to find keyword phrases people use which are further down the buying funnel.

Most startups with new products do not have many customers who are “most aware.” 

Typically these are people who are: 

  1. On your email list.
  2. Familiar with your work and the problems you solve.
  3. Unable to buy your product.

There aren’t any keywords specific to this buyer mindset. Still, you need to optimize your home page and a handful of other bottom-of-the-funnel pages.

Product-aware customers are the 2nd most likely to buy your product. 

These people know what products the competition sells. As such, they’re comparing you directly to the competition. That means if you ran the burger fast food joint Chick-Fil-A, they might compare you to McDonald’s.

These comparison shoppers may lookup phrases in Google like, “McDonald’s alternative,” “McDonald’s burger costs,” or simply “McDonald’s.” We’ll create these pages for you first to find get this low hanging fruit.

Solution-aware customers are aware of a solution. But have not chosen who to buy their product from. Growth Ramp will target these customers next.

In our fast food example, solution-aware customers would be those who want a burger, but not sure where to buy it.

I know, it sounds unlikely someone has never heard of McDonald’s. But let’s say a customer is in a new city and it’s 10 pm at night. This family may not know McDonald’s is open or even in that city.

So they’ll Google phrases like, “burger restaurants open now,” “burger restaurants in [city],” or “nearest fast-food burger joint.” This is the next set of keyword phrases Growth Ramp targets.

Problem-aware customers are less likely to become a customer. But there are also more of these customers available.

Going back to our example, these are any and all hungry customers. They don’t care if you sell a burger, a burrito, or a bagel. These families may Google things like, “what’s good to eat,” “what restaurants are open near me,” or “I’m hangry what should I eat at home?”

These are the keywords most SEO and content marketing agencies target. From time-to-time, Growth Ramp will write these articles to improve your SEO. However, we're more likely to refer you to another marketing agency instead.

Finally, at the bottom of the funnel are unaware customers.

These customers are hungry but aren’t even aware of their hunger. 

Consider folks who are focused and in the zone at work. Right now, they’re not feeling hungry. But the moment they walk away from the screen, they realize they haven’t had a bite to eat since 6 o’clock that morning.

It’s often hard to catch the attention of these customers with SEO. Often the best bet is to do a brand awareness campaign. If you were selling Facebook ad services, you might write an article like, “How to Find The Perfect Wife Using Facebook Ads.”

What is your conversion-driven copywriting process?

Not all words sell the same. Otherwise, you should outsource your writing to your man in India. Heck, “lorem ipsum” will do fine.

So what is Growth Ramp’s secret sauce to creating compelling copy? The kind of copy which converts casual campers into crazed customers?

It’s a 5-step process I call POWER copywriting:

  1. Plan and Position.
  2. Optimize and Orchestrate.
  3. Write and Fight.
  4. Edit and Emphasize.
  5. Review and Rank.

Step 1: Plan and Position

What separates a so-so copywriter from one who makes you hand-and-fist more money?

For starters, they begin by planning, not by writing. At Growth Ramp, we do this for you in the Gap Analysis™

Here’s a behind-the-scenes look of the planning process...

First, we begin by listening to your customers. Or potential customers, if you do not have customers right now. And in the right situations, we listen to your ex-customers. This allows us to discover the precise objections and barriers to making you more money. 

Second, we’ll listen to the founders. You know your business inside-and-out. It is your brain-child which you’ve loved and nurtured. And to help us raise your annual recurring revenue (ARR), we connect your passion with the market’s needs.

Third, we’ll listen to the sales team, the support team, the demo team, and the product team. These employees interact with your customers on a day-to-day basis. Talking to them will allow us to find the key selling points that wow your customers.

Talking to you and your team will reduce your time answering repetitive questions. And it also cuts downtime dealing with unqualified leads.

Fourth, we run a competitor analysis. With this competitive intelligence, you’ll get the inside scoop on how to position your startup to dominate the market. 

You’ll get a detailed analysis of where the opportunities are in your market. Then we’ll draft your battle plan to take on Goliath and become a leader in your industry.

Step 2: Optimize and Orchestrate

With your copy in place, we do keyword research to scale our results even further. (Note: copy must be first, then SEO).

Everything is then packaged into a simple document for you to review. In an hour call, we’ll show you:

  1. A list of pages to create magnetic copy, and an estimate of the business value of those pages.
  2. A list of competitors in your market, their market position, and our positioning recommendation for you to become the market leader.
  3. A list of customer personas. This includes which customers we believe to be the most profitable, and which will suck the life out of your startup. Yes, as polite as some customers are, not every customer is a perfect fit for your business.

After optimizing your plan, it’s common to discover opportunities that will increase your revenue by $853,000 and $2,190,000 per year.

Step 3: Write and Fight

“Being aggressive doesn’t guarantee success, but failing to be aggressive nearly always guarantees failure. In a modern world of political correctness, glad-handing, and fear of offending everyone and anyone, the art of the fight is undervalued.” - Tim Ferriss

What are you built to destroy?

That’s an aggressive idea. After all, you built your product to help people, improve their lives, and bring them delight. At your core, you desire to teach and build others up.

So why do smart copywriters write to pick a fight?

A wise general picks her battles wisely. If you attempt to win every encounter, you’ll be too tired to win the battles which matter most.

Do you remember how Facebook began?

When “FaceMash” began in 2003, Mark Zuckerberg did not open up his platform to everyone. 

MySpace, LinkedIn, and hi5 served “everyone.” Facebook set out to create a product loved by a few small fans: Harvard students.

How effective was this strategy? According to The Guardian, “Within 24 hours, 1,200 Harvard students had signed up.” [1]

Why did Zuck do this?

Simple. He knew what battles he wanted to fight. And once he captured a sizable market, he expanded into a nearby market. In 2004, Zuck expanded to Columbia, Stanford, and Yale. After that, Facebook became the go-to social network for all Ivy League schools, then all colleges, and finally for everyone.

Successful marketing begins by understanding what strengths and advantages you have. Then finding valuable customers your competitors are under-serving and serve them better.

Growth Ramp writes (and fights) with honesty and integrity.

Earlier I made a comparison between Growth Ramp and other marketing agencies. For example:

  1. Professional copywriters and CRO agencies only serve clients who meet two conditions. They must have $250,000 in annual revenue and 50,000 monthly unique visitors.
  2. Growth Ramp uses the same SEO principles. We then apply them to earlier-stage startups by combining copy with SEO.

We help you fight fair without compromising your values.

Are you afraid of potential legal harm? This might surprise you too.

The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) encourages marketers to name competitors in their ad campaigns. And they’ve done this since 1972. [2]

Since picking your position in step one, it’s time someone defended you for a change. So in step three, we create and re-write your copy to pick an honest fight against your competitors.

[1] “A Brief History of Facebook.” The Guardian, July 25, 2007.

[2] F. Beard, “Comparative advertising wars: an historical analysis of their causes and consequences”, Journal of Macromarketing, Vol. 30, No. 3, 2010, pp. 270-286.

Step 4: Edit and Emphasize

If you want a lean, mean, fighting machine, you need to trim the fat.

Each word must pull its weight to make your page shine (and skyrocket sales). If a word won’t make you more money, it needs to leave, and pronto.

Every page Growth Ramp creates for you has three stages of editing:

  1. A clarity edit.
  2. A specificity and believability edit.
  3. A readability edit.

Why is it important to improve clarity? When your visitors land on your website, they want to know:

If your language is not clear, you’ll lose credibility and your visitor.

This is also why you need to be more specific and believable. It increases your credibility and trust.

What do I mean by being more specific and believable? Consider these two headlines:

  1. “We’re the biggest sales CRM.” 
  2. “Over 310,400 sales teams use (and recommend) our sales CRM.”

Which headline creates higher credibility and trust, and make you more money?

The second headline, because I added specific, factual information.

Here’s what specifics I added:

  1. The specific number of customers who use the sales CRM (“over 310,400”).
  2. The specific customer persona (“sales teams”).
  3. Specific language to show customers love the product (“and recommend”).

Companies boast about being the best, the biggest, and any number of grand reasons to buy their product. As a result, the customer is cautious and skeptical of these claims.

Instead, by providing specific facts, the customer will create their conclusion.

Finally, we improve your copy by improving its readability. After all, if no one reads your copy, does it even exist? More importantly, will it make sales?

All writing starts out bloated with useless words. Every word not making you money gets cut.

That’s not to say your copy should be short. On the contrary. Here you are reading this page. And it has over 4,900 words.

Every word must add power to your message.

Step 5: Review and Rank

Our goal is to get you results. 

This means we go beyond reviewing the page with you by explaining each decision. It means we’ll speak our minds and push back if your requests won’t improve your goals. (Though you get the final say because it is your business).

Your copy is now ready for prime time!

Once your copy is live, we make sure it ranks fast for the right keywords.

How much do professional SEO services cost?

Pricing isn’t simple.

We ran an SEO pricing study and found out 24.6% of SEO agencies and consultants charge between $1,000-2,000/month. But nearly a quarter (23%) surveyed charge $4,000/month or more.

Now you may be thinking, “I should find an SEO agency for $1,000-2,000/month.” But there’s a danger when you look for cheap or affordable SEO services.

Why is cheap and "affordable" SEO services potentially dangerous to my business?

Cheap SEO services is often an expensive mistake. 

The question you want to answer is if these SEO services will deliver you more sales. Spoiler: the vast majority will not.

There’s a lot which can go wrong when you use affordable SEO services:

  1. The person buys links, which is against Google’s policy. [3]
  2. The content quality is inferior, which damages your brand and sales.
  3. Google may penalize your site, which may lead to them de-listing your website from all search results.

So even if you later hire the right SEO agency, buying cheap SEO services will set you back.

So what should you expect to pay for SEO services?

I cannot accurately speak (err, write...) for everyone else. So let me share how Growth Ramp prices its SEO services.

[3] “Link Schemes.” Google Search Console Help, n.d.

How does Growth Ramp price their SEO services?

Before I go any further, I need you to know something important.

We refuse to take your project when we’re not confident you have the potential to make 10 times your investment.

But how do we price our SEO services?

Let me show you an example to help you budget for our services.

With the Growth Ramp Gap Analysis™, it’s common to find opportunities between $853,000 and $2,190,000 per year.

The Gap Analysis™ is a $3,000 deposit, which you may apply as credit for the full project. Once we discuss the Gap Analysis™, one of three things will happen:

  1. You love the Gap Analysis™ and do the heavy lifting yourself. You’ll get everything we’ve crafted and tailored for you.
  2. You love the Gap Analysis™ and want to become our client. We’ll personally help you execute, maximize, and profit from our strategy on the path to get you 10x the results.
  3. In the unlikely event the Gap Analysis™ did not show a 10x return on investment, I will send you a full refund of $3,000.

Let’s say the Gap Analysis™ shows a potential value of $900,000. Therefore the most you will invest in a 12-month project is $90,000.

A full 12-month project often is between $75,200 and $209,000. (Or $7,100 to $18,250 per month on a payment plan. You save $10,000 by paying in full). For select client situations, we may reduce the full scope to fit your budget. There are also six-month projects available.

Why is there a large price range?

Your business is in a different position than another business. 

  1. Market conditions are different. Perhaps your market size is $32 billion and growing 10% every year. Or your market is $100 million and growing 30% a year.
  2. Marketing budgets are different. Some startups have an extra $2,000-$5,000 a month to invest. Others have $10,000-$30,000 a month.
  3. Employee count is different. One startup has three employees. Another startup only has the founding team.

This is why I guarantee the Gap Analysis™ and why your potential value is at least 10x what you pay for our services.

Information is accurate as of Quarter 4, 2019.

We’re often booked 3-8 weeks out. We add new clients add on a first-come, first-served basis.

What deliverables will I receive each month working with Growth Ramp?

After creating your Gap Analysis™ custom-tailored strategy, we’ll map out the full project.

While each project is unique, most clients follow a similar path to success.

Here is a typical project timeline:

Gap Analysis™ Customer Interviews: Customers are the lifeblood of your business. And many are waiting (and excited!) to help you improve your business. After all, the better your product is, the more they will benefit.

We reach out to 50 customers to get first-hand feedback (or potential customers, if you do not have 50 customers). We use this data to improve your business strategy, pricing strategy, copy, and go-to-market strategy.

The Gap Analysis™: Your custom-tailor strategy to show you opportunities often between $853,000 and $2,190,000 a year. You will also receive:

1. Competitor intelligence from other startups in your industry.
2. A list of value propositions and positioning statements.
3. Our recommended position for you to dominate the market.
4. A list of customer personas and anti-personas. And more importantly, identify who we believe is your most profitable customer.
5. A full recommended list of pages to build.
Month 1 Market Research Survey:
Customer interviews are excellent for finding cash-making copy. But where they shine in quality, they lack in quantity.

Enter the market research survey. After finding your most profitable customers, we’ll survey them to confirm our hypotheses. The goal of this survey is to lower your cost to get a new customer (AKA, your customer acquisition costs).

We then repurpose this data into link-worthy content to accelerate SEO.

Home Page Copy: Your home page will make an important first impression. And you only have one chance to do it right.

Using your positioning statement, we’ll transform your home page to help customers understand your core business value. This will educate your audience to better understand how using your product will substantially improve their lives.

Why Us? Page: Here’s the deal: If your customers are on your website, they want you to sell them. This page tells your story and gives customers the reasons to choose you over the competition.

Pricing Page: Price is your biggest growth lever. Yet from our experience, pricing is often the least discussed among founders. We’ll work with you on your pricing strategy and price point. Then we’ll transform your pricing page to make you more money.

(4) Feature, Comparison, or Customer Pages: Copywriting legend Eugene Schwartz tackled the five phases of customer psychology.

In his classic book “Breakthrough Advertising,” Schwartz described the five customer stages as:

1. Most Aware.
2. Product-Aware.
3. Solution-Aware.
4. Problem-Aware.
5. Completely Unaware.

Applying Schwartz’s principles to websites, we’ll create a library of content for customers in all stages of the buyer's funnel.
Month 2 Research Report + Promotion: What is the sweet spot for articles to get a ton of traffic and links? In a 2015 survey by BuzzSumo and Moz, the team found two types of content that strikes the right chord. [2] These are research-backed articles and opinionated journalism.

After finishing the market research survey, we turn this data into an article. Once the article is live, we promote it to potential customers to super-charge your search traffic.

Stats Page: Anyone can share their opinion. But supporting your points with data will increase credibility, leading to sales.

Your stats page is an excellent resource to convince and convert customers. And it provides helpful citations for bloggers and journalists who want well-researched articles. This leads to more links, and more organic traffic.

About Page: This page seems like a natural place for you to talk about yourself. Wrong-o! An effective About page digs into your customers’ minds and hearts, then shares how your story weaves into what they desire.

Process Page: People are curious to learn about the magic sauce behind your product. By creating a process page, you allow the customer to sell themselves on the desired outcome.

(9) Feature, Comparison, or Customer Pages

[2] Rayson, Steve. “Content, Shares, and Links: Insights from Analyzing 1 Million Articles.” Moz, September 8, 2015.
Months 3-5 (12) Feature, Comparison, or Customer Pages.

You may wonder why it’s so critical to building all of these pages? In short, each page helps your customers visualize your product. Yes, a demo video gives them an inside peek. But a 3-minute teaser trailer does not educate the market.

It’s also said someone needs seven touches with your brand before buying. Marketers call this, “The rule of seven.”

This isn’t true. Some Growth Ramp clients got new customers in our first three promotions. And a select few got new customers on their first promotion.

More often than not, the rule of seven exists because customers do not understand your product and how it helps them.

Each page explains your product and position better. And by linking these pages together, customers can get seven touches in one visit. As a bonus, linking pages together will improve your SEO.
Months 6-12 Product-Market Fit Analysis: Is it better to create a product several people like? Or that a small handful of people love?

If you desire word-of-mouth to accelerate your growth, you want a product a small handful of people love. This is known as product-market fit.

We’ll quantify and measure where your product is right now to reach product-market fit. Then we’ll craft a product strategy to turn your product into a lovable teddy bear.

Double Down on SEO: You have your first scalable growth channel with SEO. Yay! So should you stop what’s working and find something new?

It’s a common error, but now is the perfect time to invest more in what’s working. 80% of your marketing budget should be here.

Test Growth Channels: There are over 12 primary growth channels, with several niche opportunities (like Quora ads). Some will work, others won’t.

Now that you have ongoing organic traffic, it’s worth testing new channels. We’ll help you invest 20% of your marketing budget here.

Make Connections to Accelerate Growth: We can get results with PPC, but we’re not masters at PPC. Our copy converts, but a full-fledged CRO agency will serve you better. And while our content gets traffic, links, and sales, a content agency can produce quality content faster.

Once your product is out of the early-growth stage, we’ll connect you with the right agencies to accelerate your growth faster.

What about reporting?

Every week we email you the status of the project. And we’ll set up a call at least once a month to talk about the ins-and-outs of your project.

How is Growth Ramp different from other SEO agencies?

Every SEO agency specializes in different opportunities to make you more money.

Some promise to double your email revenue, but only if you’re an 8-figure eCommerce store. Others build a full sales funnel from cold Facebook ads to warm leads for enterprise companies.

Growth Ramp specializes by only offering copywriting and growth marketing services for early-stage startup products.

So if you are...

  1. An established startup looking to launch a new product.
  2. A new startup with less than 1,000 customers.

We'd love for you to apply to work at Growth Ramp. If you're not a fit, we'll happily refer you to another agency or consultant who we believe will get you results.

It’s impossible to tell you what separates Growth Ramp from every SEO agency. But in general, here are some key differences:

Yes, we know how to make money with these services. You may see us doing them on our website. And from time-to-time, we do these services to see if it’s worth investing more resources into those channels.

But we know everyone cannot specialize in everything. Instead of adding another service to make us money, we double down on our services to make you more money.

How do I start working with Growth Ramp to improve my SEO and copy (and make me more money)?

The first step is a discovery call. During this call, we learn about your needs, timeline, and make sure you are within budget. If you meet our qualifications, at the end of the call, we will ask if you’d like to do the Growth Ramp Gap Analysis™.

Our Gap Analysis™ allows us to learn about your growth opportunities and threats. It’s common to find opportunities between $853,000 and $2,190,000 per year. The Gap Analysis™ requires a $3,000 deposit with no expectation to continue working with us. And if you choose to do so, it becomes a credit to your next project.

And if you do not see the potential for a 10x return on investment, you get a full and immediate refund.
