Dan’s calming presence was so appreciated and he genuinely cared about my business. He is able to work with you to support you in understanding your own goals and how you can achieve them. He always took the time to discuss matters with me, no matter how busy he may have already been and responded to my queries swiftly, which as a start up were many.
Dan provided consultancy support for our online marketing efforts particularly around SEO. He was extremely knowledgeable and also very helpful and and went above and beyond what I expected in terms of the quality of the work produced. Based on his recommendations we've been able really extend our reach in our online marketing without spending lots of money on advertising. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone looking for support with their online business development.

Fair warning: if you're new to SEO, what follows might look like a fairly boring list of fancy words. That's because it is! Our job is to cut through the BS and tell you what really works for businesses like yours. At the same time, we'll give you just enough jargon to get by. Here are some of the concepts we will be covering.
Try this old cliche on for size. A typical SEO or digital marketing agency offers to sell you fish. We'd rather give you the net and show you how to use it. For us, this model makes better business sense, plus it's more ethical. After all, an agency can always mark their own homework and tell you how well they have done. If they tell you they got your website to the top of Google, how do you know it's for the right keywords? If they say they attracted 1000+ followers on social media, how do you know they're all real people? At Growth Stream, we want to give you the skills and strategies you need to put your future growth back in your own hands. We can teach you, coach you, or work alongside you. Sound good?
The first step is the most important and perhaps the most widely misunderstood. When somebody wants some information or a product that your website can give them, what keywords or keyphrases do you they type into Google? This is not guesswork or gut instinct. We will give you the real-world data with easy-to-follow recommendations so you can make an informed choice about which searchers to target and how.
Google has stated that successful websites should demonstrate expertise, authority and trustworthiness. So that's our starting point. Where possible, we recommend completing a full SEO plan before you even begin to build your website. That way, we can help you to choose a site architecture which makes sense to users and search engines alike. Building on that foundation, we can serve up lots of the rich, authoritative content that Google loves.
Now we have our keyphrases and our website content. On-page SEO is the process by which we connect the two. We can show you how to help Google understand which pages serve which users in which circumstances. We have a simple formula that works every time.
Page One of Google has a strict dress code. We're not getting in unless your website is mobile-friendly, quick to load and easy for robots to understand. Being a bit nerdy helps when you're starting out with technical SEO. But if that's not you, don't worry. We'll break everything down to bitesize chunks with real-world examples that make sense. No Star Wars references.
Authoritative, successful websites usually attract endorsements from other sites. For Google, these endorsements come in the form of links. If lots of prominent websites link to your content, this tells Google that you're doing something right. Think of links as the word-of-mouth recommendations of the internet. Using real examples proving what works for us, we can show you how to get the links Google expects you to have.
If a system works, it should be specific, measurable and repeatable. That means tracking and monitoring your progress. We'll show you what to track and how, as well as flagging some of the fine-tuning and adjustments you might want to consider along the way.
We deliver training, coaching and consulting in all aspects of search engine optimisation, beginner to advanced. We can teach you from scratch, we can give you pointers, or we can roll our sleeves up and muck in alongside your in-house team. We're not an agency and we don't claim to do everything for you. Instead we give you the systems and the skills you need to take your future growth into your own hands. How does this sound so far?
We're based in Cardiff City Centre, near the railway station. So, if you're in South Wales and you'd like to talk about your SEO in Cardiff, maybe over coffee, just let us know. We'd love to meet you.
Our coaching and consulting are bespoke services, tailored to meet your exact requirements. By contrast, our public training events are kept more general to suit all industries, all job roles and all organisations. We also offer in-house training to spec.
