Get a Smart SEO Strategy for Your Growing Business 


Work with a Vancouver-based SEO expert to boost traffic, leads, and revenue. 

If you want more local or global traffic so you can grow your business, then a smart SEO strategy is likely the best solution for your business. In some cases, ads might be a better fit. But if your business sells high-value products and services, organic traffic is often the smartest thing you can do to guarantee business growth.

Hi! I’m Colette. Your Vancouver SEO guide.

Like many SEO experts, I got into this area by accident. 

I started building websites in 2012 and quickly discovered that getting found online was a problem my clients and I faced. A big problem.

In 2014, I started a video production business, and once again was faced with the fact that if people don’t find your websites or videos, then you’ve wasted your money. That’s when I started to dig into SEO. Within a few years, I was obsessed. I started doing SEO for my clients and was beginning to see remarkable results.

I’ve been able to take websites from a few hundreds of organic visitors per month to thousands of targeted visitors. 

In the process, I’ve helped clients 6x their leads and sales, double their online revenue, save hundreds of hours, and get a lifetime ROI of over 4000%.

What I’ve learned in the process? 

The majority of business owners can see excellent returns if they commit to a smart SEO strategy.

A smart SEO strategy actually brings you organic leads. Some people think they’re doing SEO when in fact, their SEO agency is just running Google ads campaigns. And when they stop paying their SEO agency, and the ads are turned off, the traffic stops. But SEO is not about running ads.


Smart SEO is about growing a swell of organic website traffic related to what you sell. SEO is about building authority by creating helpful and strategic content. It’s about dominating search results by being useful, not spammy. It’s about creating powerful assets that don't melt away if you fire your SEO agency.

What is a "smart" SEO strategy?

Running Ads Isn't SEO

Build an Asset for Life

Focused on organic

FOCUSED ON BEING HELPFUL

A smart SEO strategy is largely immune to the vagaries of Google’s ever-changing algorithms. It doesn’t require constant updates and can pay dividends for years to come. Fun fact: I’ve had posts continue to get more and more traffic despite not touching them for years.

Immune to Algorithms

FOCUSED ON EVERGREEN

SEO is about huge long-term growth, not short-term fleeting rewards. But if you’re skeptical about SEO, you’re not alone. Most SEO agencies are really ad agencies. So many business owners are confused about SEO. And many more business owners have been burned by bad SEO. But you're not here for that! You want smart SEO. 

No More Fleeting Wins

FocusED on GROWTH

HOld on a minute...

Smart SEO is focused on content that acts as both a traffic driver and (gentle) sales conversion machine. It helps you build dominance on Google while staying 100% compliant with all of Google’s most treasured best practices. With a smart SEO strategy, you don’t have to worry about chasing trends. You can focus on growing your business and enjoying life. 

Attract and Convert

ALWAYS DUAL PURPOSE

A smart SEO strategy is largely immune to the vagaries of Google’s ever-changing algorithms. It doesn’t require constant updates and can pay dividends for years to come. Fun fact: I’ve had posts continue to get more and more traffic despite not touching them for years.

Immune to Algorithms

FOCUSED ON EVERGREEN

Make More Sales

FOCUSED ON REVENUE

Marketing is pointless if it doesn’t boost the bottom line. Your SEO strategy should be linked to your most profitable products or services, so you can make more sales and grow your business. 

A good SEO strategy can bring in leads for years.

Your SEO assets won't just disappear the way social wins do.

SEO typically provides great ROI and long-term growth.

You can relax knowing your leads won't disappear overnight.

Good SEO brings you traffic and helps to convert that traffic.

At the end of the day, SEO should help you to increase sales.

A smart SEO strategy based on high-value content is one of the best investments you can make in your business.

Story Envelope’s Winning SEO Secret Sauce

CREATE HELPFUL CONTENT

There aren’t any magic tricks that can instantly get you ranking on the first page of Google. BUT, every good SEO expert will have a little secret sauce that helps their clients outrank the competition. My secret sauce has three main ingredients. 

First, I focus deeply on creating content that outperforms the competition by being more helpful and unique. Google favors unique content that is actually useful. 

Next, to keep people on page longer, I use plenty of stories and examples. The longer people stay on a page the faster that page scoots to the top of Google. 

Finally, when appropriate, I create high-end evergreen videos to complement the text-based SEO pages. When you combine video SEO with strategic blogging or pillar content, you get a match made in glorious traffic heaven. You also end up with pages and posts that are much harder to beat. And you typically increase website conversions.

SEO Agency vs. Consultant in Vancouver

There’s no right or wrong choice. However, typically if you already have a massive website with thousands of pages, an agency might be a better fit. Whereas if you’re a smaller business with a small website and you want a personalized high-touch experience, working with an SEO expert is best. Most importantly, you should trust your SEO expert and know that they are focused on helping you achieve your business goals.

BUT WAIT...Should you work with a big agency in Vancouver or an SEO expert or consultant?

Working together we grew their website traffic by over 2500%. (Nope, that's not a typo!) We've generated traffic that would have cost over $250,000 a year if you had to pay for the Google PPC.

We also created a series of videos that allow new ideal clients to feel like they already know and trust SWAN Wealth before they've even booked the first call. Finally, we upgraded their website so that ideal clients feel immediately at peace and at home when they land on the site. The side effect: way more booked calls and way more leads.

In summary, we boosted their business using a smart strategy that attracts the right people to their website and brings them into their sales process more quickly and effectively.

Common Questions about SEO in 2022

For most businesses, paying for SEO is worth it. You need to be sure that getting more targeted traffic will increase revenue. If you get the right traffic to a website that converts, then SEO will pay for itself many times over.

Is it worth it to pay for SEO?

Yes, SEO is worth it in 2022. SEO is not even close to being dead. It’s still one of the most underused and misunderstood forms of marketing despite also being the most powerful. 

Is SEO worth it in 2022?

You can do SEO by yourself as long as you’re committed to a two-year learning curve and many long hours training your brain to think like an SEO. 

Can I do SEO by myself?

SEO is not that technical in 2022. Modern, smart SEO is all about creating unique, people-focused content that’s helpful and demonstrates expertise. SEO requires you to think strategically and be helpful. It doesn’t require coding. 

Does SEO require coding?

SEO is not going to disappear in five years unless the internet disappears.

Will SEO exist in 5 years? 

Unless you want to become a professional SEO or you have some free time, you should hire someone to do your SEO for you. It’s possible to do basic SEO by yourself. But it’s not possible to create a growth-focused high-value SEO strategy without putting some serious time into becoming an SEO expert.

Should I hire someone to do my SEO?

There isn’t an average cost for SEO services because agencies around the world have different operating costs and levels of expertise. Also, some agencies will include ads, PR, and social media strategy in an SEO package. But for pure SEO, you should expect to pay anywhere from $2000 to $10,000 a month or more, depending on the size and complexity of your business and growth needs. That said, SEO should not be seen as a cost but rather as a business investment that helps increase revenue.

What is the average cost for SEO services?

SEO is one of the best strategies small businesses can use. It’s my experience that small businesses can dominate in Google search because they bring a genuine and unique perspective that big businesses with too many stakeholders can’t match. SEO also tends to provide the greatest ROI of any marketing strategy, which makes it perfect for small businesses.

What Is NOT Doing SEO Costing You?

If you do a quick Google search for some words or phrases related to the products or services you offer, what do you find? 

Are your competitors coming up even though their products and services aren’t as good as yours? 

If you’ve tapped out word of mouth and want to keep growing your business, not doing SEO is probably costing you hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, if not more. Think about how many visitors your website could get if it were on the first page of Google for key search terms. What kind of revenue do you think that would bring? That’s the cost of not committing to SEO. 

Luckily, it’s never too late. But the sooner you start, the sooner you’ll get to enjoy those sweet SEO wins!
