What Exactly I Do

Doing everything makes you a jack of all trades, master of none.

I am am experienced, honest, hard working SEO professional in Kansas City. For some people, SEO is still a mystery. Allow me to unravel a little of that for you today.

Even though many people think of the Internet as “technology,” when you look at how SEO really works, it’s still all based on words. Words on your website and words out on the web that are about your company. I program your website, create compelling copy for you, and then manage the process of turning all of the mentions about your firm –and the traffic that comes from Google (and other search engines) – into verifiable leads and sales. Be aware. I just focus on SEO, so if you’re looking for another marketing discipline, like email marketing for example, I’ll be happy to refer you to a good specialist I know in that area.

You can count on me to keep things simple. Let’s have a simple conversation about your SEO today:

My early years and how I got started.

Kansas City SEO
Las Vegas, of course, is a big city with many lights. Growing up, I lived about 2 hours from Sin City, in the small community of Golden Valley, Arizona, which being out in the desert was quite dark at night. Kingman, AZ, was 30 minutes away by car. It was too far to drive there everyday, so my parents made the decision to homeschool me – and my brothers.

I liked the dry heat. Actually, we had moved to Golden Valley because of my health; I just couldn’t take all of the humidity where we used to live in Washington State. My parents extended our studies past the normal subjects. They taught us how to program computers – a valuable skill then and now. I loved it! By the time I was twelve years old, I had created a computer program all by myself. It was a simple calculator.


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

In my teens, I embarked on a self study program of my own to learn even more advanced programming skills. I mastered GW Basic and other programming languages and started dissecting the “inside” of computer games to see how they worked. I also wrote more computer programs of my own, including some adventure computer games. When the web first became popular for business, I was there, customizing my friends’ MySpace pages.
After a brief hiatus from programming, I launched a number of successful affiliate marketing websites of my own. My friends took notice and started asking me to build their sites and promote them. I always say, what use is an awesome website if no one sees it? That’s what SEO is all about. Our aim is to raise your search engine rankings so you get as many of your ideal prospects as possible checking out firm and making the decision to do business with you. It was in 2007 that I won my first paid client for SEO, launching what has come to be called Joseph Stevenson (a Kansas City SEO Firm).


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

One of the main things that sets me apart from other Kansas City SEO companies is the strong working relationship and respect I build with my customers. I’m talking about trust. In my book, it has to be earned. Many of these other firms really don’;t want to do hard work. They want to sign you to a year-long contract and then sub-contract your work to a “content farm.” They become a sort of middleman, rather than an active marketing partner like I am. I want every client to get great value for their money. To this end, my philosophy is to do things right the first time and not to rush the process like other SEO firms often do in Kansas City. Rushing doesn’t work. To get results in SEO, one must be methodical – and strategic.

In addition, if you listen to many of the other SEO companies in the Greater Kansas City area (in Kansas and Missouri), you’ll always find a few that will outright claim that they are the best SEO company around. What I will tell you is that I am one of the best. When you begin to compare firms, do your homework. Look at a company’s portfolio of websites. Ask to see the analytics from a SEO firm’s current clients so you can see if the search engine rankings for these clients are indeed improving. Remember: SEO is a long-range pursuit; no good comes from temporary fixes.

If you don’t do things right, don’t do them at all.

Speaking of quick fixes, you’re also likely to find that many Kansas City SEO companies try to get done with your SEO work as soon as possible. They will arrange for a number of links and post a lot of lackluster content, but nothing will stick. And if it does cause ranking to rise, the improvement will be short lived. A top-notch SEO company will do all within their power to get you more visitors and more sales. They will do the work as if they owned your company.

Take a look at my “formula” for getting your website to #1 on Google and other major search engines:

1. Assess your current site and get it ready for visitors. As needed, improve your coding, content, and online lead generation and sales process.

2. Create and post high-quality content (blogs, social media messages, and media releases) that will appear on and off your site. Our objective here is to get as many other sites and publications to pick up your content and publish it. The links back to your site and the sheer amount of great content out there about your company is what starts getting traction with the search engines. Your rankings go up and more people see what you have to offer.

3. Repeat. Any effective SEO process is all about repetition and consistency. We’ll get the momentum going and keep it going. When people talk about “buzz.” that’s what they mean.

Rest assured, if another Kansas City SEO firm recommends anything much different from my tried and true process above, you need to know that they are not being upfront with you. A sustainable increase in ranking only comes about through hard work and continued attention to detail.
