The bottom line is if you don’t make a great ROI you won’t continue to hire us month after month. We’re only looking for long term relationships, so if we don’t think we can get you a great return on investment we won’t take you on as a client to begin with. To ensure the sustainability of our agency we only like to take on new clients that we’re sure we can generate an ROI of at least 100%. That said, most of our clients are seeing a 200% – 500% return on our services.
We Are Part of Your Team
Our only goal is to help you succeed. Most SEO companies base their packages on specific quantities of tasks that will be accomplished. In contrast, our SEO services are based on the results we will achieve for you. If your project turns out to take twice as much effort as we expected that’s on us. In short, we work until you rank. End of story.
You should know which advertising dollars are generating revenue for you and which are wasted. We have proprietary call tracking software and Analytics software so you can see exactly where your new clients are coming from and track them through every step of the sales process. This information helps determine which advertising campaigns should get scaled and which should get cut.
We don’t base our business on loopholes that will get your website ranking on the first page of Google in today’s algorithm, and de-indexed in the near future. Our methods are aligned with Google’s core values, and we look forward to new algorithm updates which generally weed out sites using questionable SEO practices and help our clients’ sites move up in the search engine results pages.
If we can achieve these results against other SEO companies think about the results we can achieve in your industry.

If you would like your website to generate sales you’re in the right place. All of our services are based around increasing the number of visitors to your website, and increasing the conversion rate of your website, so in short increasing your sales. Not all of our services are for all businesses, but you don’t need to figure it out on your own. You can read summaries of our services to the right, and if you are unsure what would be the most beneficial for your business give us a call at 204-272-7265 or fill out our short application form, and we’ll walk you through our services, and what kind of results you could realistically expect over the short and long term horizons based on the level of competition in your area of business and the number of search volumes for relevant keywords.
With our single site SEO service our goal is to rank your website number one in the organic search results for as many keywords that relate to your business as you’d like to target. This includes keyword research, and ongoing on page and off page SEO. The monthly cost for this service varies greatly depending on the competitiveness of the market you are in, and the number of verticals you would like to rank for. This is a great option for small to medium sized businesses that are just getting started with SEO, or have constrained marketing budgets. This service is the full extent of what most Winnipeg SEO companies offer. For a more detailed explanation of this service check out the the single site SEO page.
If you are looking to take things to the next level and want to dominate the search engines with multiple first page results we suggest you check out our search engine domination service.
For local search terms Google often displays a pack of either three or seven local results near the top of the first page in a pack with a map. On a mobile browser these listings have a call button located directly on the search results page. In January of 2014 mobile search volumes surpassed desktop search volumes. This makes showing up in these local results more important than ever.
The algorithm used to determine which businesses are displayed in these local listings is completely different than the algorithm used to rank sites in the organic results. This service is usually provided as an add-on to one of our other SEO services, since onsite optimization is required for both organic rankings and Google Places rankings. For more details on this service visit the Google My Business page.
Video SEO involves leveraging the selling power of video marketing combined with the distribution power of SEO. If a picture is worth a thousand words then a video is worth a million. Our video SEO service includes the production of high quality promotional videos. We then upload these videos to YouTube, and rank them on the first page of Google. On our video SEO page you can find a more detailed look at the process and samples of our work.
Search engine domination refers to an SEO strategy that leverages all of our other SEO services and more. The purpose of search engine domination is not only to rank your website at the top of page one, but also to push your top competitor down the page. Imagine if the first three results on the page belonged to your business, and another one or two lower down. Every first page position that belongs to you pushes a competitor on to the second page. In addition, since the majority of people have a very limited understanding of SEO, if there are five first page results that relate to your business people will assume that your business is the most reputable. In addition to your website and YouTube videos we can rank Yelp pages, Facebook pages, Twitter profiles, Google+ pages, LinkedIn profiles, business directory listings and the list goes on.
Do you have a negative review or news article that’s showing up on the first page of Google for your business name? Online reputation management (ORM) is similar to search engine domination, except we rank properties for your brand keyword instead of industry related search terms. Since brand terms are far less competitive than product or service related keywords we can fill all 10 of the first page positions with properties owned by you and push the negative press onto page two.
There is so much more to internet marketing than SEO. Search engine optimization is a great way to bring traffic to your website, but how do you make that traffic convert into paying customers? Most business websites we see are great online brochures. Unfortunately great information and graphics aren’t enough to turn people into buyers.
On average only 2% of people make a purchase on their first interaction with a business, and 80% of sales are made on the 5th – 12th interaction, so what are you doing to capture peoples information?
We build sales funnels that include:
- low threshold offers and relevant opt-in bait
- an email auto-responder series
- re-targeting campaigns
Our goal for our integrated marketing clients is simply to increase revenue. Traffic generation is only half of the equation, and with this service we both generate traffic, and make sure it converts.
A website is far more than an online brochure for your company. A website can be an important instrument in generating leads and converting them into customers. We build search engine optimized websites that are designed to be the entrance to your sales funnel.

ABOUT THE FOUNDER
First of all, I’d like to congratulate you on taking action. One of the few guarantees in business is that if you don’t take action you will not succeed. The fact that you’re here on my site tells me that you are ready to take action, and you are serious about growing your business. Before we start working together I’m going to want to know a lot about you and your business, so to start with I’ll tell you a little bit about myself.
I started my first online business in 2005 long before the inception of this Winnipeg SEO Company. Since then I’ve started developed and sold multiple internet based businesses ranging from promoting national brands for commissions, to sourcing and reselling physical products to creating and marketing digital products. Over the last decade I’ve acquired a comprehensive understanding of the most effective traffic generation and conversion optimization techniques for selling online.
Although these businesses provided a great source of income throughout university, after graduating from the Asper School of Business with a double major in Marketing and Entrepreneurship, I decided I wanted to do something more meaningful. At the time I was selling the same products that hundreds of other online stores were selling, and I was making a lot of sales because I was better at online marketing than most of my competitors. The problem was my customers were people that were already searching for, and ready to buy the products that I was selling, and I made the sales because my site showed up first. If my website didn’t exist these same customers would have found another store and still purchased the product, so in reality I wasn’t providing any added value to the manufacturer or the purchaser; I was just getting paid because I had the most visibility.
After reading No B.S. Direct Response Marketing by Dan Kennedy, I began to realize how much of a difference my skills could make to local brick and mortar businesses. The book, which I highly recommend you read if you haven’t, is about direct marketing for non-direct marketing businesses.
One of the biggest mistakes most local businesses make is imitating the marketing strategies of big businesses. Throughout business school I continually heard “the purpose of advertising is to alter attitudes, not behaviors.” This may be true for a company like Coca-Cola that can afford to spend a million dollars on an add to keep their brand in our evoked set, but for a business with a limited marketing budget every dollar spent on advertising should be traceably accountable for an increase in profit of more than a dollar.
The purpose of First Rank is to help businesses generate leads from their websites. We put a focus on SEO, because we believe it is one of the most cost effective and highest converting forms of traffic generation, however traffic alone is not enough on its own to grow your business. SEO should be combined with conversion optimization, email marketing and retargeting to maximize the ROI of your advertising dollars.
