About My Manchester-Based SEO Services
Whether you own a startup business and require marketing services, or work in marketing for a company looking for SEO consultancy, I can help.
Simply put, I understand how difficult it can be to get the marketing efforts of a business off the ground. From growing traffic and organic visibility, to ensuring the technical SEO health of your website is thriving, I integrate with business owners to remove any marketing headaches and implement a strategy that works.
Who am I?
I’m James, I’ve worked in SEO in one way or another for the past ten years. Whether that’s been affiliate marketing, working agency-side for firms across Manchester, or operating on behalf of agencies via white-label services, I have extensive experience across digital marketing as a whole.
From working with small businesses on their local SEO strategies and helping startups to grow, to transforming the way eCommerce sites perform online, I have a straightforward approach to both working with clients and delivering the results they’re looking for.
I am now a leading SEO consultant, and from my Manchester-base I provide digital marketing services to companies across the UK, and even overseas.
Bespoke, Cost-Effective Digital Marketing Services
I understand that, for any business entering into the world of digital marketing, ROI is everything. My approach to SEO allows me to keep overheads low with a remote team (or working as a consultant myself), which means that I can either offer freelance SEO or agency services at a fraction of the cost of a larger agency. The only difference is that I don’t have a fancy office to have meetings in… but I know several coffee shops that do the trick.
It’s this mindset of being as fairly priced as possible that has enabled me to create very efficient processes for all aspects of my work, so that no time is wasted and every hour that is spent working for a client, is done so with a commercial mindset and an ROI-driven goal.
Do you trade as a business?
Yes, I trade under Dispense Digital Limited, which is my core business. Dispense Digital is primarily a white-label SEO provider, and with a remote team we service agencies and freelancers across the globe. Having this remote network of experts also allows me to tap into valuable resources as part of my freelance consultancy work, at no extra cost to you.
Essentially, you receive the services of a standard agency without the high prices due to way Dispense Digital operates remotely (simply put, you’re not paying to keep the lights on in a fancy office). On average, monthly contracts with Dispense Digital are 65% cheaper than standard agency, whilst providing the same results with a team of outreach specialist, SEO’s and content experts.
Where are you based?
I am based in the heart of Manchester City Centre, working remotely from shared workspaces, coffee shops, and often from home. This approach means I don’t have any expensive overheads to put on top of my SEO services, keeping the costs down for myself and ultimately for my clients!
Do you work with anyone else?
When the occasion calls for it I will bring in additional assistance in the form of my remote team, parter of the wider Dispense Digital network. This remote team of tried and tested freelancers with agency experience allows me to scale services for clients without having to double prices and incur the costs of a fixed, city centre office.
What experience do you have in SEO?
I have worked both freelance and agency-side for over 6 years, most recently within a senior technical SEO role before dicing head-first into the world of freelance SEO. I also provide both agency and white label SEO services as part of my larger agency setup.
Why do you provide a free website audit?
The free audit I provide is very top-level, enough to get the conversation started to uncover what you truly need in the form of an organic SEO strategy. The complete audit I provide takes on average between 2-3 days, ranges between 10-25,000 words and is incredibly extensive in terms of the issues that are inevitably uncovered regarding the technical SEO ‘health’ of your website.
If you have had a recent rankings drop or have been hit by a manual Google algorithm penalty, get in touch today to learn more about the valuable information an in-depth technical SEO audit can provide.
Do you provide SEO across the UK, or just in Manchester?
When it comes to meetings and seeing clients in person, I would naturally prefer to meet at least in the North West! However, as is the nature of SEO work, I can provide my services remotely to any business in the UK looking to develop the presence of their website. In fact, I even have clients overseas, so working on a site remotely is no problem at all (and ultimately it means lower overheads, and a lower cost for the client).
