SEO consultant for hire

GrowTal connects you with SEO consultants who can help you rank in search results, drive traffic to your website, educate visitors, and acquire new customers. The strategies, discoveries, and recommendations from these experts can be used to build onsite and offsite website content that works for your business rather than against it.

How can an SEO consultant help your business?


A skilled SEO specialist studies website traffic, search trends, keyword research, and other reports from data-rich tools like SEMrush, Screaming Frog, and Ahrefs to build technical SEO and content SEO strategies that help more people find and stay on your website. 

SEO consultants can help you

  • Track, interpret, and act on website analytics
  • Perform keyword research 
  • Build and implement technical SEO strategies that identify and solve technical problems on your website
  • Build and implement content SEO strategies that help you understand how to create content that will rank in search engines
  • Build links and create backlinking blueprints
  • Build and implement SEM strategies that help you understand how to bid on keywords that you want your website to show up for when people search
  • Stay up-to-date in real-time with changes from Google, Bing, and other search engines that could affect your search rankings

An SEO consultant can also help tell you which projects and tasks need immediate attention and which ones can wait. This ability to prioritize is an essential part of SEO optimization.

Who should hire an SEO expert?


GrowTal places top SEO consultants at companies of all sizes and across many industries. Companies that hire SEO consultants typically do so for a few reasons:

  1. They don’t have the time, budget, or desire to hire a full-time SEO expert. 
  2. They have an immediate team need or a quick project need that requires a skilled SEO specialist.
  3. They want to see whether content, link building, or technical SEO work can improve ranking and traffic.
  4. They need regular access to an expert with deep knowledge and experience running point on strategy and execution.

Why hire an SEO consultant through GrowTal?


Finding qualified SEO consultants is not easy. To be effective, SEO consultants need to be constantly following updates from search engines and keeping up with industry best practices. They need to be experts at using the tools of the trade. They have to be creative problem-solvers and analytical thinkers. Trying to find the right expert on your own isn’t easy because unless you have experience in the area yourself, it’s hard to know what to look for.

You can waste a lot of time writing a job description, interviewing candidates, checking references, and onboarding your final pick only to find out that they didn’t actually have the knowledge or experience they said they had.

GrowTal eliminates these headaches and more by owning the entire process for you. The content marketers who join our network are qualified on paper, but we don’t just take their word for it—we go the extra mile to ensure they can think and act strategically to solve the challenges businesses like yours face on a daily basis.

How we source SEO consultants

We find talent through our own network. 

Our team is well-connected in the marketing industry, and we’ve worked with and for a lot of talented people in past jobs. We regularly ask industry friends, former coworkers, and past employers to introduce us to the best SEO experts they’ve worked with. 

This puts us in a unique position to quickly connect businesses in need with people we personally know and trust. The ease of our model also allows us to bring highly experienced professionals into our network who are working full-time jobs and might otherwise never think to take on contract work. 

Getting access to these types of SEO experts is incredibly difficult without a partner like GrowTal.

Our process for pre-vetting SEO consultants


We take every SEO consultant we meet through a rigorous pre-vetting process before deciding whether or not to add them to our network and make them available to clients.

Here’s how the vetting process works when we’re evaluating SEO experts:

Step 1

Reputation & Resume Evaluation

We evaluate the reputation, resume, and LinkedIn profile of the person being considered to better understand their experience and abilities.

Step 2

Initial Gut Check Conversation

We perform an initial discovery call to hear more from the freelancer. We can usually tell within a few minutes if they will be a good fit for the type of SEO work and quality we and our clients expect.

Step 3

Deeper Experience-Based Interview

We take content candidates through a dozen deeper-level questions about SEO and also spend time evaluating their problem-solving skills, communication abilities, and overall professionalism.

Step 4

Final Evaluation by an Industry Expert

After the interview is complete, we gather our notes, meet as a team, and leave it up to one of our subject matter experts to decide if the candidate is a good fit for the GrowTal network.
