Hi, I'm Zoe

I’m a freelance SEO consultant born and bred in Derby

I’m ready to help you boost your online authority and get noticed for being the best at what you do. I’m the no frills girl next door that tells you like it is.


I know Derby like the back of my hand and specialise in providing SEO services to local businesses looking to compete online.


I know that search engine optimisation can feel like another world with all the technical wizardry, jargon and algorithms to contend with, but it all comes down to one thing – consistently outperforming the competition.


Putting together an effective digital marketing campaign and SEO strategy can be difficult to get your head around, but it’s what I do best.

SEO marketing is the key to standing out in a crowded marketplace

When you want to stand out from the crowd, it’s time to be the zebra in the herd.


Did you know that a group of zebras is called a dazzle? That’s exactly what I want for your business online, to stand out and dazzle the competition by showing your differences and being proud of what you do.


In pages upon pages of search results you want to be standing out from and outranking your competition, so your target audience clicks through to your website and buys from you. Not them.


SEO marketing is the best way to achieve that.


Results don’t happen overnight. You might not even reach that much coveted first place if there’s a lot of competition in your area or industry, but you will always gain one thing by using effective SEO strategies to market your business.


A credible and informative website that delivers value to the people that need it most – your ideal customers.


SEO marketing not only improves your website for Google and other search engines, but it helps you stand out as being authoritative and an expert in your industry, exactly what your ideal customers want when they’re looking to buy your products or services.

As a freelance SEO consultant I can help you with

Content Marketing

I know what it’s like as a business owner trying to stand out in a marketplace full of other people offering the same thing. For me it was bookkeeping. Competition is fierce when you’re competing with other bookkeepers, accountants and huge financial corporations.


It was through learning copywriting and marketing skills trying to get my small business noticed that I found my love for SEO. I like to set goals and smash through them! I’m also fond of “geeky” technical stuff and learning best approaches to doing things, combined it makes me a rather nifty SEO consultant (even if I do say so myself!)


I can help your business with search engine optimisation at the level that’s right for you, whether it’s coming up with a strategy for you to implement, or to carry out the work for you so you can sit back and enjoy the results. It means I can work within your budget to help you climb those search engine rankings.

SEO doesn't have to be difficult

You just need the right search engine optimisation strategies for your business

There’s just one simple thing you need to do – be better than your competition.


Ok, I know. That doesn’t sound simple, but when it comes to an effective SEO strategy, it means 2 things 1) a website that works well and is easy to use and 2) having better content than your competitors.


Using both on-page and off-page optimisation strategies, I can help your business reach your target audience wherever they may be (psst. It’s not always Google!).


So many businesses don’t take this approach because it’s hard work.

When you want to go big with your SEO it’s time to go local

I’m not a big agency with a massive team at my disposal but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing.


As a freelance SEO consultant I can offer you a truly personalised service and the support you’d expect to go with it – I’m 100% committed to helping you get the best results possible for your business.


Think of me as an associate that’s as interested in helping your business reach the top as you are, and I will do everything that I can to make that happen.
