What Exactly I Do

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

Minneapolis, Minnesota is a big place; there’s a lot of competition on the web. Sometime, it’s tough to get your website to the top of the major search engines. I’ve been in the SEO and web development field for 12 years now.

It’s plain and simple; I get results for my Minneapolis clients. I consider them my business partners. My company is thriving because I’m good at what I do, I can clearly demonstrate my results, and I focus completely on SEO (as opposed to doing apps, email marketing, etc., trying to be all things to all people. (I can recommend other firms that are marketing generalists) As for me, I enjoy being a SEO specialist.

My early years and how I got started.

Minneapolis SEO
Golden Valley, Arizona is way out in the desert; the closest town is Kingman – about 30 minutes away. You could say that because of Kingman, I’m in the SEO business today. You see, my parents moved us to Golden Valley when I was very young because of my health. I needed a drier climate. Since there were no public schools in Golden Valley, my parents – who love programming – decided to home school me and my brothers.

They couldn’t wait to teach us GW Basic and other programming languages in addition to the standard subjects. By twelve, I could write a computer program on my own. (By the way, my brothers ended up in the technology field, too. One works for BP now, the other for Adobe.) So, as they say, at a young age, I was off to the races!


Where my love of being a nerd came from.

My teen years became all about learning as much as I could about programming. Instead of playing computer games for hours and hours, I studied how computer games worked for hours and hours. I also learned about directories and web interfaces, doing a favors for friends by programming their MySpace pages with some “bells and whistles” all that other sites didn’t have. Making ad revenue and learning how to program a complete website was my next milestone. I built a number of affiliate marketing sites and experimented with how to get other people to visit them.
Then, along came search engines, and knowing how to promote a website was forever changed. Due to my programming abilities, I got up to speed fast on how search engines worked. In 200y, I began building websites for business owners and offering SEO services as Joseph Stevenson (a New Orleans SEO Firm). When New Orleans entrepreneurs ask me abut what differentiates my firm, I show them my clients’ results, and tell them the story I’ve just shared. I’m in this for the long run, not to make a quick buck. I’ll put my full attention on getting you the best SEO rankings possible.


I believe business should be earned, not expected.

You’ll find that I do everything I can to win your business and develop trust. I believe trust must be earned, not expected. Only after I set the SEO Plan and work hard to raise your rankings, do I hope that you will trust me to work on your behalf. I realize that many business owners have been burned before. They are wary of hearing a lot of hype and getting little or no return on their money.

Many of the other SEO companies in Minneapolis are not always upfront; one of their favorite moves (that I’ve seen firsthand) is to get you to sign a long-term SEO contract, and then the day it’s sign they start looking for another vendor to subcontract out all of the work. They just don’t want to work hard like I do. And, total transparency doesn’t seem to be one of their guiding principles. All the while, many of these same Minneapolis SEO companies will claim they are the best, but will never show you their clients’ actual results. Did their clients’ websites rise in the rankings? Yes or no? I suggest you find out before choosing a SEO firm.

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

Another common trick in Minneapolis is for a SEO firm to try and get through the work they do perform as fast as possible. Sales and winning clients is more important than actually following through and doing the work. Many SEO firms in Minneapolis, unlike my own, will do some initial link building, post some content on your blog, and act like that’s all there is to getting highly ranked on the search engines.

In contrast, I do the job right the first time, take the time required to create a SEO framework, and build form there. Over my 12 years in the business, I’ve designed a 3-step SEO process that works every time as long as we do the work gradually and don’t ease up when we see a (temporary) boost in rankings. Easy does it.

Here’s the way Joseph Stevenson builds your ranking:

1. First, we focus on getting your site looking good and working properly – and making sure the coding is optimal – so that when we drive more visitors to your site, the stage will be set for sales,

2. After we have your site presentable, we’ll add strategic content on site and off site to give other sites great copy to pick up, and give the search engines more copy to index and rank for the prospects that are looking for your products and services. This includes blogs, social media posts, press releases, and more.

3. Last but not least, we keep on keeping on. It takes posting and distributing great content over time, and monitoring everything closely to get to the top – and maintain your higher rank.

Being disciplined and regular in following this 3-step SEO process is what it takes to achieve results.
Any Minneapolis SEO company that doesn’t suggest a similar process is trying to take shortcuts in doing your work. In the long run, and sometimes even the short run, you won’t be happy.

Minneapolis SEO

I have been promoting websites and doing SEO for 12 years now. I won’t claim to be THE best firm in Minneapolis SEO, but I do claim to be one of the best. And, I’m honest. If you’re reading this sentence now, remember you most likely landed on my website precisely because I did good Minneapolis SEO work to get you here.

It takes superior coding and a lot of hard work to get you to the top of the search engines, but I will tell you, every minute is rewarding for me. At Joseph Stevenson SEO Consulting in Minneapolis, Minnesota, I am happy when you are. I suggest that having a frank conversation about what you’re looking to achieve is our first order of business.
