Creative SEO for Creative Agencies

The creative approach starts with a consultation

Creative agencies house unique thinkers and doers, people who understand the intersection of art and effectiveness. They combine good sense with sleek designs to meet the needs of their customers. At Outpace, we take a similar approach to SEO. We understand that a well-designed SEO strategy is a marriage between creative thinking and data-guided planning. Your website should translate well to the eyes of the public and to the algorithms that run the web.

We account for design from the beginning. A bad user interface is a bad user experience. An extra click here or there can tank your engagement rate and reduce opportunities for organic search results.

Target Market SEO for Creative Agencies

Match your offerings with a kindred audience

What separates creative agencies from one another? The quality of output can be somewhat subjective, and what serves one style of client may not match the next. By elevating your strongest services and emphasizing your agency’s premier style to clients with similar values, you are engaging with an audience primed to love what you do.

The warmest leads are usually the happiest clients. Find customers who will value your work, and your referrals and reviews will grow organically. At Outpace, our mission is to play matchmaker between you and your next great customer. We want to build a digital footprint that search engines value, so when someone is searching the keywords that most describe your agency, your agency’s name appears at the top of results. This is the kind of marketing that’s so good, it doesn’t feel like marketing at all. Beyond that? We can build something better together.

Creative Agency SEO FAQ

Answering your questions about SEO for creative agencies

Why do creative agencies need SEO?

When you build products or brands, shoot videos, or write copy, all of that work is going to end up somewhere. And the clients paying for your services hope that it is somewhere future customers will see it. For a quality SEO firm, it’s no different: we leverage our skills to put your services where they are more likely to be seen online. And outside of buffing your portfolio, we can add value to your clients. Working with us to verifiably improve the most technical deliverables for your strongest clients could lead you to bigger contracts.

As an ad agency, why not just run ads?

The advertising road is perfect for creating a splash, for creating a variety of content customers can engage with, but it can be an expensive route as printing and media buying costs accumulate. A well-implemented SEO strategy will generate a stronger long-term ROI than PPC (pay-for-click) ads, plain and simple. But going a step further, SEO can bring you a more quality form of traffic when compared to direct ads. Good SEO engages audiences who like your style. You should be appearing at the top of organic search results in searches by people with tastes that match your output. And while direct digital ads can skip the line with higher page placements, they stand out as obvious advertisements. Smart customers can spot the difference, and they usually speed past the paid ads, no matter how promising the copy. Direct ads are like taking a sledgehammer to a thumbtack. They are a blunt force. With SEO, you’re taking a more finely tuned approach.

Should creative agencies build with regional SEO?

It all comes down to your clients. If you prioritize local and regional business, there is untapped value by association. Local reviews, local backlinks, and local blogs can create credibility within your physical market. But what if you are targeting an industry, regardless of location? Our keyword research will help you target the terms that your competitors are using, as well as the ones they miss.

Should creative agencies partner with SEO agencies?

If your creative agency excels at all things creative, but could use a hand when it comes to the technical heavy-lifting, we can work together as a team to create a unified strategy – for you or your clients! Pave the way but rely on us for our reading between the lines of code. For many smaller agencies, a full-time software staff is cost prohibitive. With Outpace as your second set of problem solvers, your app and website designs can add even more value to your business and the businesses of your clients.
