SEO IT ALL UP!

What’s the point of a beautiful website if it doesn’t have the right strategies in place to bring you traffic? We will do SEO keyword research to determine what specific locations, niches and other words people would actually type into Google to find your photography website. Then, we’ll provide you with these keywords, along with specific image names + sizing specifics, so you can make sure the images you upload for us for your template customization are SEO-friendly. We’ll add these keywords into your Page Titles and Page Descriptions, so Google can easily understand what your website is all about.

If you’re not finding a Tonic Showit Template you love, just reach out to us! You can provide us with brand words or specifics that you’re looking for and we’re happy to provide you with templates that best align with your aesthetic.

Phase 2 of the Template Customization process dives into the Client Journey Questionnaire, which usually provides us with about 85% of your website copy. Any remaining copy that you want to provide (usually includes pricing/packages details, facts for your About Page, etc.) can be provided to us by you via a Word Doc in Dropbox! If you do prefer to hire a copywriter from start-to-finish for your website, we can provide you with names of a few that we recommend!

It sure does! We will design a landing page for your blog and a single blog post page based on the template you choose. For blog content migration, you will need to have your previous blog on Squarespace or Wordpress.

We’d LOVE to help you with your brand design! Let us know when you inquire if you’re also interested in custom brand design and we can provide you with a quote.

Probably lots of late 90’s/early 00’s pop music. Think TRL. Only the best!
