Get Found by Your Favorite Clients
Your beautiful website design does nothing for your business if potential customers don’t know you exist. Your business needs a focused Sylva SEO strategy if you want to capture new leads and clients from the Western NC area.
Think about all the vacation travelers pouring through our area every week.
Southern Living coined Sylva a ”western North Carolina jewel” and I bet your business plays at least a small part in that. Kayakers, mountain bikers, and family vacationers drop in every weekend. College students are pouring into Western Carolina University and Southwestern CC in growing numbers.
And, they’re using Google to find the best stops on their phone.
You don’t have to keep chasing the social media hamster wheel or depending on slow referrals. There’s a better way to grow your Sylva business. Strategic SEO efforts build long-term value into your Sylva business website as an investment.
It won’t take rocket science to help your business climb the Google rankings. But you do need a focused local SEO plan and a good dose of consistent content.
Long-term, sustainable growth really is possible!

How can we reach clients in Bryson, NC?
We’ll kick off your Sylva SEO campaign by assessing your industry and competitors. Then, we’ll optimize your website, Google Business profile and industry profiles using geo-specific keywords for your business. After all, your geographic location is one of the most overlooked areas of search optimization.
Why do we focus only on website design, development, SEO, and content marketing?

How much does SEO cost in Sylva, North Carolina?
Sylva SEO services range greatly by cost. You can expect a true SEO expert to cost between $500–$5,000 per month. However, most SMBs can improve their search optimization in smaller, 3-6 month sprints. Effective marketing requires thoughtful investment, so be honest about your budget and goals — we’ll do our best to guide you down the right path.
How are SEO and PPC different?
SEO stands for “search engine optimization”, and focuses on improving your website to be more easily found via organic search results. You don’t have to pay anything to the platform for traffic through SEO. PPC, or ‘pay-per-click’ advertising, generally refers to paid ads in Google Ads and other platforms.
How long does it take to see SEO results?
There is no standard for how long it takes your campaign performance. That will depend on the current health and reputation of your website (and company). SEO is a long-term strategy and not the answer for flash-in-the-pan sales. Most of our clients start seeing results after investing in their online presence in the first two months.
