SMALL BUSINESS Lead Generation Websites

To stand out and capitalize on today's crowded markets you need more than a glorified business card, you need a website that...

    is optimized for search and conversions
    establishes credibility and authority
    updates as quickly as the market


Reaching Your Target Audience May Require a Redesign

Reaching the top of search engines in 2022 may require a new website and an expansion of your brand's online presence.

Core Web Vitals

"This signal measures aspects of how users perceive the experience of interacting with a web page. Optimizing for these factors will contribute to business success on the web as users grow more engaged and can transact with less friction, especially on mobile."
- Google 2021


"Public relations and omnichannel promotion should be a focus, such as being active on YouTube, social media, blogging, conferences, and remarketing to build connections and long-lasting relationships."
-Neil Patel 2021

Mobile-first Indexing

Google's been slowly making the mobile version of websites their starting point for its index and the baseline for determining rankings. That's why our websites are not just "mobile-responsive," they are literally built for mobile-first and expand to larger screens as an afterthought.



Google has invested heavily since 2020 in its own spam-fighting AI that's highly effective at catching known and unknown trends in link schemes and on-page spam. In 2021 alone, Google has released two separate spam updates, so ethical SEO is going to be essential moving forward.

Frequently Asked Questions

Website Design

  • Are there any perquisites?

    ● Please prepare plenty of company copy and pre-sized media files. We'll use filler text and stock images in places where copy isn't provided upfront.● You'll need to activate a free Cloudflare account for use with your domain, but we recommend you also transfer your domain to their at-cost registrar. Not only will this give you the best at-cost domain registration, but will open the door for more customization, and give us standardized access to DNS.

  • How long does it take to go live?

    Generally, we'll be able to complete the website before the end of the first month. This is entirely dependent on how quickly we receive your feedback.

  • How many revisions do I get?

    We'll seek your feedback on an initial design mockup on the main page within the first week, followed by two rounds of weekly edits. You'll be asked to comment on and/or approve the designs within 5 days, any revisions availed could take a few days to complete.

  • What is website call tracking?

    If your business has multiple locations we can set up unique high-converting local phone numbers for individual landing pages that can route to whatever phone numbers you prefer, but either way, we'll be able to see what phone calls originated from what landing pages on your new website.

  • Do you offer any guarantees?

    If you are not satisfied with the quality of our design services, we ask that you request a refund during the initial mockup stage. If the site design is approved and transferred to your account on our platform, the funds spent on research and development are non-refundable.

  • Are there any limitations?

    Our developer is constantly updating and adding new features, optimizations, and integrations. Currently, like Wix, there is no way to transfer your SEO SEMPER site to a third party, however, you own everything, and can copy the design manually if desired.

Search Engine Optimization

  • Can you work on WordPress sites?

    Sorry, we no longer work on websites outside of our platform.

  • How long does it take to rank high?

    We ask that you give the SEO time to work, normally 4-12 months, however, since SEO SEMPER sites are a collaboration between our team and our customers, rankings can be affected by the edits you make to your website after delivery. To remedy this, we recommend you schedule an SEO consultation via the chat inside your website before making any changes.

  • Do you have an SEO only plan?

    In short, no. We need to control the website to guarantee results.

  • What is content optimization?

    We monitor Google Search Console for opportunities to combine and/or refresh articles based on how the search engine understands them and ensure they are as optimized to solve search intent as possible. We'll also proactively look for decay across the domain and rewrite pages to better position them over the top keyword competition.

  • What is content promotion?

    We'll promote your best articles (especially those which solve an industry problem) to various paid content promotion networks for targeted traffic, and install custom code on your website that will encourage backlinking on both blogs and social media.

  • Are results permanent?

    While careful planning, branding, and optimizing for humans can help websites stay ahead of Google's algorithms, it's important to note that nothing is necessarily set-it-and-forget-it in SEO, so we should be revisiting our analytics from time to time as the market changes.
