SEO Services At ESV Digital

Visitors from the unpaid listings in search engines such as Google and Bing continue to be the largest revenue source for many online businesses. These visitors also play a large part in almost every multichannel attribution conversation, meaning SEO is always a vital channel in any online marketing conversation.

The SEO landscape is always changing, with Google and other search engines always looking to catch and penalise any activity which contravenes their terms of service, which is why our seasoned directors always stay on the right side of the tracks, focusing on best practice technical optimisation with precisely-targeted content. Through this process, we’re continually able to generate the best results for our clients, whatever their market, with no fear of penalties or other impacts from search engines.

SEO results don't happen overnight but our approach of getting the technical basics right first and then investing in strategic content to provide organic linking and build your brand has proven to be highly effective for all ESV SEO clients so far.

Our Approach

We believe in always getting the fundamentals right first through advanced technical SEO analysis and development and then working with you to create highly targeted, best-in-class content across a variety of mediums, ensuring that when people are searching for your services, you’re the best answer. This combined with unique reporting dashboards for each client, regular human analysis by our specialist team members and proactive strategic analysis and development ensures that we are always able to keep you ahead of the curve.

Whether you need full, ongoing SEO service management or something more project-based, the ESV Digital team can help across anything from optimising your local business listing to optimising a series of sites for an international enterprise.

We also offer a range of integrated services with our paid search & media buying and data analytics offerings, ensuring you always see the best results across your digital marketing activities.

Our Team

Our SEO team is led by seasoned directors with many years of experience. Having worked on over 1,000 websites, including a large number of household names, our team know exactly what it takes to get results in any market without resorting to “black hat” tactics. Our team make a point of immersing ourselves into your business, understanding what makes you tick and what makes you different and, with our unique data-driven, audience-led approach to SEO, we know exactly who you need to reach and who to reach them. You will always be able to speak directly to the people that are doing your work rather than project managers, ensuring complete clarity of communication throughout the working day.

Technology Ambivalent

With our years of experience, we are not precious about the tools and software we use. We can work with any kind of website on any kind of server and we have a number of industry-leading tools on our roster, including AHREFs and Screaming Frog, but our team are also never afraid to get their hands dirty and build their own tools in a variety of programming languages.

Online Branding, in partnership with Bell Integrated

ESV’s roots were founded in Search Marketing and Data Analytics, so we’ve embraced a performance-based approach in our DNA, but at the same time we want our clients to possess a diverse and flexible traffic portfolio (never-ending media budgets are not a solution for most businesses), that’s why ESV helps its clients to diversify their budgets focusing on an often forgotten core asset > Your Brand!

We welcomed Bell Integrated Communications into the ESV group in 2017. Bell are an award-winning strategic branding, design and integrated communications agency that transforms brands, businesses, convention and behaviour. In partnership with Bell we can offer the right blend of creative, analytical and performance-based services required to efficiently build your brand online to attract more visitors and convert them into more customers.

Web Design

Websites have become the most critical tool in every brand’s arsenal, of paramount importance to the entire sales and after-sales customer journey. Bell have a long track record designing and developing sites of all shapes and sizes, from microsites to portals, commercial to promotional, blogs to magazine sites. We approach every project from the same starting point: What do you want your brand to say or do online?

Bell are build agnostic – we always employ the most suitable tools and CMS for every project. We take pride in our IA, and our UX design – always driven by ‘accessibility’. Every project is informed by a full audit including content assessment, developing user scenarios and modelling content. Our sites – designed to be fully scalable for all devices – pervade your brand at every step of the way.

Online Branding

Bell have been creating, rebooting and reimagining brands for over 40 years: brands that are impactful and practical, scalable, always with a welcome dose of clarity and simplicity. Online branding is an environmental extension of branding, driven by the same fundamentals.

The genesis of a successful online brand is information. Walking before you can run, taking a step back and addressing core fundamental questions, such as “why?”. Bell are always guided by insights and experience, including data analytics, our strategic interpretation of which is vital. Overall, without understanding the different audiences and the environment, we’ll have no benchmark from which to commence formulating an ‘airtight’ online branding plan. From here, your digital footprint takes over, starting with your website.
