SEO & Writing

Our writing and website SEO services work together or stand alone to put you on your customers' radar—and guide them to the next great step.

Over the years, our SEO and writing strategies have helped an iconic local company gain more online visibility than competitors in a tight market. They’ve produced organic search traffic that consistently generates 85% of an ecommerce client’s online revenue. They’ve helped a regional client in the transportation industry overtake more established nationwide competitors.

No matter who we work with, our approach to SEO and writing gives our clients better business because we never stop thinking about how good rankings and great content can win new customers. (And we have to admit that being able to prove the results gives us the tiniest thrill.)

Website Writing

Mostly Serious is an SEO agency specializing in writing and website SEO services.

Our website writing informs, persuades, reminds, and delights your audience.

The task of website writing inevitably ends up being a burden to most of our clients who already balance a heavy workload. In fact, it usually ends up being the most common reason for timeline delays (seriously, the average delay is around four months) that can bring a great launch on the horizon to a screeching halt. But it doesn't have to be that way. Our team of experienced, strategy-driven writers are happy to give you the break you deserve and take the reins with a profound devotion to making your website's copy perfect. Our headlines, actionable CTAs, and just-right supporting copy matches your tone and voice to a tee, communicates who you are and what you do, and hits all the right features and benefits to guide soon-to-be customers through your site and onward to solid leads and sales. You're more than qualified to write your website's copy—but we're more than delighted to. And it makes a difference.

Our SEO Agency Approach

Mostly Serious has measurable experience in website SEO services that get results.

SEO doesn't have to be revolutionary to work—it just needs to give your audience the content it wants. And that's exactly what we do.

We haven't gotten our SEO clients where they are in their rankings because of any shortcuts, shady tactics, or algorithm-dodging techniques. (We'll pass.) Instead, our Google-certified SEO experts rely on straightforward, customer-minded intuition to research keywords, optimize your website, and produce ongoing content that build your Google rankings and give your site visitors exactly what they need to know to take the next step—whether that's an online purchase, a form submission, or an in-store visit. It's this kind of artfully simplistic thinking that drives up our clients' good standing with Google, nudges competitors out of the spotlight, and crushes revenue goals. (And it's not a bad way to show ROI either.)
