They were so invested in getting great outcomes for us, their communication was incredible, and their work obviously amazing. They're everything we look for in a great partner.

FAQs for SEO Agencies

Read our latest FAQs to give you insight into how SEO works and how it can support your digital strategy.

Does SEO really work?

We can say with confidence that, yes, SEO does work, there are SEO case studies that prove this. As with all things worthwhile, it takes time, but once an SEO campaign has started, it rolls on and always upwards.

Ideally, you’ll see results within 3 months. You will see your site going upwards on the SERPs, you will see more traffic arriving at your website, and keywords you’re trying to rank for, lifting you up the search pages.

How much does SEO cost?

The more you invest in SEO, the greater your return. This is not an attempt from us to make you spend more money. You can get great results with us from a minimum spend of $1200 a month. A larger investment will provide additional benefits, such as more time from SEO professionals to work on your website or on backlinks, and you can get more SEO copy written for your campaign.

Have an honest chat with any SEO agency you want to engage with. Talk about what your budget is, what it will be paying for, and make sure the investment is suitable for your budget

To learn more about creating your own SEO success, you can check out Hawk Academy; StudioHawk’s dedicated SEO training platform.

Is SEO worth it?

Learning about SEO and finding the right agency to work with is worth your time and money. Organic SEO builds upon itself. By adding content, updating your pages, and finding backlinks, you get a gradual uplift in the SERP and traffic to your site. And it will keep rising as you do it.

While paid SEO can get you big wins quickly, it, can cost you more money over the long run. And if you choose to stop the PPC and other paid marketing, your SERP results drop like a stone.

The coolest thing about SEO and its worth? If you start to learn about it yourself, you can apply SEO everywhere, yourself. Have a new product you want to launch? You don’t have to wait for your agency to schedule it in. You can start on it yourself. With knowledge of keywords, heading structure, and more, you can write your own SEO Copy, knowing that it will be effective.

What does an SEO Company do?

A good SEO agency should do the SEO work for you. They’ll tell you exactly what they’re doing, get you involved so you understand what’s going on, and communicate regularly with the wins and the not-so-wins.

That is a very high-level observation, we know. Let’s get a little dirtier and tell you what StudioHawk does as an SEO Agency.

How to Choose an SEO Company?

Have a conversation.

Chat to the people at the SEO company. Are they salesy? Do they sound more interested in making a sale than explaining the ins and outs of SEO? If you don’t feel comfortable talking to them, then walk away. You will have a long relationship with these people. If it doesn’t feel good from the start, it probably won’t improve going forward.


Many companies want to lock you in for 6 months or 12 months. For some, the certainty of the same people doing the job for 12 months for a flat fee works both for budget and for peace of mind.

However, we’ve found that lock-in contracts breed complacency. They don’t have to work for your money. They already have it.

Case Studies

Look for proof of past performance, testimonials, and what other clients have to say. We tend to trust the opinions of others, especially when it comes to making a significant purchase. 

Check out the testimonial section and any recent case studies. Do you like what these clients say? Does it feel genuine? Are they in your industry?

SEO Awards

Has the agency won any awards? What kind of awards are they? How recent are they?

Awards are great to win, especially from esteemed organisations. But if all you see on the front page of an SEO agency’s website is nothing but ‘we won awards!’, you’ll need to look deeper.

But look deeper than that. We back these awards up with a team of professional SEO experts, some darn good SEO Content Writers, and world-renowned SEO Experts.

Is SEO for me?

Everyone who has a business can benefit from some kind of SEO. To what degree, and how much it could cost you, is a conversation you need to have with your marketing team and with your friendly neighborhood SEO Agency. It’s a surefire way to get more traffic to your website, which increases your chances of conversion into paying clients.

Have a chat with anyone on our SEO team. We’re specialists at what we do; we’re not salespeople who will try to sell you a dream. We’re transparent with our assessment, and if we don’t think a full SEO campaign would benefit you, we won’t push you.

We also won’t lock you into any contracts. If it doesn’t feel right for you, you can leave at any time It’s that simple.

How long does it take to get ranking?

You’ll start to see improvements in your ranking within the first couple of months. That doesn’t mean page 1 of the SERP, but you will begin your climb soon. To be honest, this is a loaded question. People want to know how long it takes until they’ll hit rank #1. The answer is usually around 6 months, but this is not totally accurate. We can get you onto page one of the SERP in 6 months, but ranking #1 might be longer. Many factors determine 1st place, including what your competitors are doing. Focus more on getting rankings on page #1, which we’ll get you.

Is SEO a short term or long term strategy?

The short answer – long term strategy. The longer answer – great SEO work involves many facets which build in effectiveness over time. Backlink strategies, content strategies, competitor analysis, and more.
These strategies can change over time with market trends, customer search intents, and more. Your competitors could change up their strategies, you may want to target different keywords or long tail keywords. You may want to increase the content for your website. Suffice it to say, it is a long-term strategy that has even longer-term benefits for your business.

What are backlinks and how important are they?

It could be argued that content is the most important factor in an SEO strategy. While backlinks are important, content is something that you can have significant control over. You can choose how many blogs you post per month, how long they are, and what keywords you want to include. You can decide how much copy you have for product pages and category pages. And the best thing about this content is – it will always be on your website, doing its magical SEO thing, for as long as it is live and online.

What to look for in a SEO agency?

We think one of the most important things you want to look for in an SEO agency is transparency and honesty. You don’t want to be taken for a very expensive ride by people who promise the world and then deliver the opposite. You want an agency that provides you with monthly reports and updates. This way you know the money you’re investing is bringing results, with reports that make sense without technical babble that confuses you. You want to look for an agency that has quantifiable results and a history to back up its promises.

What type of clients do you take on?

We take on clients who can envision success, who want to work with us, and who understand that what we will do for them will work – but it will take some time. We have large clients, small business clients, and medium clients, all of whom are looking to invest in the long-term growth of their businesses. We take on clients who are open-minded, who listen to the advice we provide, and who give great feedback to us. We take on clients who ask fantastic questions and enquire about what we do.

I have been working closely with StudioHawk for the past few months, and the results have been amazing! Without their guidance and support, I would’ve undoubtedly been unable to obtain first page rankings for the keywords ‘tutor’, ‘tutors’ and ‘tutoring’ – all of which are ultra-competitive keywords. Thanks, guys!

Dmitri Dalla-Riva


Our organisation has worked with StudioHawk for the past six months. We have seen our online presence and conversions go from strength-to-strength as a direct result of their guidance, knowledge, and industry relationships. They’re organised, professional, and deliver to a very high standard and I have no hesitation in recommending them to others.
