Does SEO Work for Businesses in Chicago?
Go to Google and search a few keywords relevant to your business. Do you see your site listed multiple times on the first page of search results? If not, you’re losing leads and sales to your competition—guaranteed.
No matter what type of business you own, SEO must be part of your online marketing strategy. It’s not uncommon for a well-optimized, high-ranking website in the home services industry (flooring, plumbing, HVAC, remodeling, roofing, etc.) in Chicago to get 100+ leads per month from organic search!
Looking for an award-winning SEO company? You’ve come to the right place. In 2011, Contracting Business magazine named Blue Corona their Business Service of the Year. In 2012, Blue Corona won multiple awards culminating with being ranked #174 on the 2012 Inc. 500 list (#1 for Montgomery County Maryland). In 2013, 2014, and 2015, we made the Inc. 5,000 again!
How We Help Chicago Businesses Grow with SEO
How many leads are you currently getting each month from organic search? Most business owners don’t even know because they’re not accurately tracking it! You can’t maximize what you don’t measure.
If we had to distill our entire SEO philosophy into a single statement, it would be this:
To rank well organically in Chicago, you must establish and promote your company as THE authority for what you do, in the markets you do it.
Ranking well on Google, Bing, and Yahoo requires three things. First, your website must be coded in a way that makes it easy for the search engines’ software to find, crawl, and categorize your website. Second, you must create web page after web page of unique, relevant, and remarkable content for every service you offer your customers. Third, you must promote your site to other relevant and authoritative websites and get them to link to, reference, and cite you as an authority.
Our SEO Process for Successful Growth of Chicago Businesses
Our process for SEO is similar to our approach to marketing in general: TRACK > TEST > TWEAK > REPEAT.
Simply put, you can’t maximize what you fail to measure and track. Better data equals better results. Our prospects almost always fall into one of two categories: those that know their numbers and those that don’t. In order to intelligently invest in SEO and grow your Chicago business, you must know your numbers. You need to know things like the number of website visits you receive today from non-branded organic search, your website’s true visit-to-lead conversion rate, and the percentage of leads you convert into sales. Very few businesses and marketing executives know these numbers, but they should. Putting in place the right tracking tools and helping you identify and understand your key metrics is a critical part of our SEO process.
For prospects that already know their numbers, we start the SEO process with a full website audit and recommendations report. Our team will review your key metrics, perform keyword research, analyze your competitors, your backlink profile, and key pages of your website, and create a detailed implementation plan. Where the engagement goes from there depends on your resources. Most of our engagements involve us creating and SEO strategy, implementing the details of the plan, and reporting the results. However, for clients with in-house teams in place, we can consult with you and use our proprietary SEO tools to help you achieve better results.

“Both the design of the website, and the later design of our mobile website, were extremely easy and professional. In the past I had problems with web designers not understanding how I wanted the site to look and respond. Working with Chase, there were none of these issues. He really listened to my requests, asked questions to make sure he understood what I was saying, and made many suggestions of ways to improve the site in ways that had never occurred to me. All the work was done on schedule and the site was on line according to the original timeline. Chase and his team were—and are—always extremely responsive to all my questions and solve any issues with the site in a very timely manner. I definitely recommend Chase and Blue Corona because of their creative skills and technical abilities, as well as their professionalism which made the entire process stress free. ”
