Compare the SEO / Website Audit to the Preliminary Marketing Strategy

To optimize your success you need a plan.

Most of our clients begin with an SEO / Website Audit or a Preliminary Marketing Strategy.

Below is a chart that highlights the differences between the two so you can get a clearer idea of which may be best to start with. While we do, transparently, integrate third party resources and reports that are freely available on the internet: we include custom content as well and aim to digest the information into a meaningful format to help you decide how to proceed.
