Project Description:
Current Work:
We're looking to hire someone to do SEO work for us. We're already ranked about 8 for our main term (and that term has about 100k results: it's a real niche), we're looking for someone to take us into the top 3 (and increase our rank on a few other keywords) as well as:
1. Analise the site and provide a report of any changes that you recommend.
2. Analise the market and check that we're on track with the keywords we've specialized in. If not, well we'll deal with that if/when it happens hehe.
Our budget is not that big, we're not looking for a 20 man studio that charges £9.99 for the privilege of emailing them, we're looking for a very small / 1 man operation that's looking for a reliable client.
Ideally we'd be looking at a 1 off payment for this job, very much in the 3 digit range.
If we like what we see then we'd definitely look at quarterly analysis / work (on this site) at the very least.

Future Work:
This is what we're really looking for, the current project is definitely important to us, but not as much as this. We're pretty much using the first project to make sure the person we hire for the job knows what they're doing and can produce results.
For the first 6 months of this project we'd be looking at paying for monthly work, after that it would likely become quarterly analysis / work.
The budget for this project is MUCH higher than the first project - once we know we can trust you we'll in turn pay you much better.
