SEO for Startups in Australia

We help Startups acquire more customers by applying Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) techniques to their website.
Many famous Startup companies have chosen to implement SEO as part of their marketing strategy…because it works and delivers high R.O.A.S.!

Why SEO is important for Startups?

SEO is an important channel as part of the marketing strategy for any startup acquisition campaign.

However, SEO is often overlooked by startups in favour of other digital marketing channels like paid ads (from social media or Google Ads) which can deliver more instant gratification when it comes to acquisition.

SEO campaigns can take 3,6,9,12+ months (depending on the level of competition for keywords in your industry) to gain traction, which means startups need to take a longer term view on their investment in SEO.

So, if you’re thinking about investing in SEO, now is the perfect time to start!

Australian startups that have benefited from investing in SEO include:

  • Canva®;
  • Prospa;
  • Lendi; and
  • Koala.

Ask yourself this, could your startup benefit from new people finding out about your business from search engine results every month?

Search Engine Optimisation for Startup Businesses is a Little Different…

Implementing SEO campaigns for startup companies is different to working with for more established businesses in traditional industries.

The main reason is you’re typically starting from a fresh, newly created domain without any backlinks or authority.

Therefore, the goal of your SEO campaign should be to:

  • Rank for your brand name (I’m still shocked by the number of companies that you cannot find by searching for their brand name!);
  • Increase your brand awareness; 
  • Increase organic traffic to your website; and
  • Attract relevant organic traffic to your website for keywords related to the product/service/SaaS that your startup sells.

We have actual experience providing search engine optimisation services to startup companies in Australia who want more organic traffic to their website.

The Two Main Factors That Need to be optimised for SEO Are:

  • Content published on your website
  • Links pointing to your website

Note — there are thought to be hundreds of factors that contribute to Google’s ranking algorithm that need to be optimised for, in addition to Content and Links.
