Why choose the actionable audit?

The Actionable Audit Solves Common "SEO Audit" Problems

There are no shortage of automated tools or SEO companies out there willing to audit your site and make recommendations for improving organic visibility, and rightfully so, as auditing a website should be the first step in any organic search campaign.

However, we weren't happy with the status quo of SEO audits and identified a few issues that we wanted to solve.

Problem #1: Too many "free seo audits"

It's fairly industry standard to offer a free seo audit. We did it for years. But we noticed two major issues with the free seo audits that we saw the industry.

Firstly, far too many of them were push-button automated reports without any manual insight. Can't blame them - they are free after all - but this doesn't paint a holistic picture needed to improve visibility.

Secondly, the rest of them were simply sales pitches in disguise as an SEO audit. The majority of these audits were simply a high level list of things that can be improved on a website in general, without specific details on the website in question. This isn't an audit. It's a proposal. If you have an SEO budget and would like a proposal, we're happy to provide one, but lets not call that an audit.

Problem #2: Most audits aren't delivered well

There are many different ways to deliver an audit - from word docs to videos and everything in between. Most SEO consultants and agencies deliver an audit in one of two ways:

The PPT Presentation.

I'm not against presenting an audit to a client. In fact I think given certain budgets and expectations a nice presentation that paints a picture of how a client performs compared to competitors, along with easy win, technical issues, and a strategy for improvement is a great way to wrap up the work that you did.

Where I do have a problem with delivering an SEO audit via a slide deck is if that's the only thing provided. If you simply breeze through a handful of issues or opportunities on a slide, that's probably not enough.

The Video Teardown

Delivering an audit via video can be a great way to save time by explaining issues in real-time or prior to a client meeting. However, if the only thing you deliver is a video of you auditing the website, it's difficult for the client to refer back for specific information.

Pairing a video explaining your findings with a well laid out audit deliverable is a great way to add to the audit experience, but it shouldn't be the only thing that gets sent.

Our audit has a focus on providing actionable insight - issues or opportunities that can be executed on right away - in order to improve your organic visibility.

Our most commonly asked questions

Why do you use Trello to deliver your actionable audit?

After testing a lot of different delivery methods, we chose a Trello board as our for a number of reasons. Firstly, it is a free and popular project management tool that a lot of people are familiar with. It is also easily shared, allowing collaboration between partners and clients. Lastly, we were able to use it to create an action-oriented audit based on a scrum-style kanban board.

What if I'm not using WordPress can I still do the optimizations?

You will still get a lot of value from the audit itself, and from the work done on keyword research, mapping, and page-specific optimizations. The differences will be that none of the actual implementations or techncial fixes will be completed. Rather, a document outlining the recommended changes will be provided.

What sort of visibility increase should I expect after your audit?

The actionable audit was designed to identify risk and opportunity for organic visibility. The goal itself isn't to have an immediate impact on organic visibility, and thefore the answer to this is "it depends." It depends on what is uncovered, where the opportunities are, and whether or not you continue your SEO efforts into the future.

Why don't you offer a free audit?

We don't offer a free audit because an audit should be thorough and it should be taken seriously. It should also provide a lot of value without being forced to commit to an ongoing campaign. We noticed that far too many free audits were either push-button automated reviews with little value, or sales pitches wrapped in an audit deck. If you have budget for organic search and would like a proposal, we can do that.

I'm a freelancer or agency and I'm interested in reselling. Is this possible?

Definitely! We work with many freelancers and agency owners offering an excellent audit solution.

We have great white-label, bulk-purchase, or subscription pricing options available for your agency or freelance business.

How long do you spend auditing my website? When will I receive my audit?

The audit takes as long as it takes. Adam has done close to a thousand websites audits and is very effective and efficient. While there is not set number of hours spent on the audit, you will receive a confirmation date on when your audit will be completed and you will receive your audit within 48 hours of the day.

Could I get a slide deck of the findings to present to my client?

Yes! We understand that as a web professional or agency, delivering an audit to a client is often done with a supporting slide deck. Our team will be happy to wrap Adam's findings into a branded slide deck with supporting documentation to tell a story about the visibility of your or your client's website. This is a one-time $150 cost and is available as an add-on.

What do we discuss during the 30-minute strategy call?

Anything! Included in all audits is a 15-minute Q&A and clarification call. In the optimization solution there is an extra 30 minutes to discuss what YOU can do to continue to promote your website and gain even more organic visibility. We can discuss strategy, create a plan, or simply chat SEO and answer questions - it is your time to do as you please.

Can I purchase the optimizations without the audit?

Sorry, no. In order to do a good job and stand behind our recommendations we need to audit the website before making detailed optimizations. All of our campaigns and solutions start with an actionable audit.

Do you need anything from me to get started?

Yes. At minimum we ask for access to Google Analytics so that we are able to audit real traffic data. Google Search Console will also be a big help. If you do not have access to these, we will proceed using public traffic data on SEMRush and aHrefs. This will still paint a good picture, it will be based on estimated traffic data vs real traffic data.
