Growing in the right direction

Proposal for SEO

By Mellissa Wheeler, MeanCreative

July 5, 2023


Avoid a gap in your SEO efforts so you can continue growing, sharing and inspiring

Now that your website is finally “SEO-ready”, it is all set up to start reaching even more people! 

There is a lot of potential in existing content that can be fleshed out, restructured and/or optimized; and with new content being added regularly, I highly recommend optimizing it before it’s published – rather than asking search engines to review the content later on.

I would love to keep your organic traffic growing

I’d love to help you update existing content so it starts drawing in the people who are looking for it, and make sure new content is fully optimised when published. This way, someone taking over in the future would be able to hit the ground running and take to the next level without spending months playing catchup first. 

What this means:

Boost existing content

Some of your older content has great potential, we can identify opportunities and provide strategies for improving older posts

Optimize new content

Giving you an optimised content structure to follow along with optimizing on-site content before it’s published

Make strategic decisions for your website’s future

Research-backed, up-to-date strategy to ensure your website stays competitive in search

Why work with me?

I’m Mellissa Wheeler, founder of MeanCreative. I’m a U.K. native marketing expert, living in the Spanish mountains with a passion for all things gardening and nature.

I’ve been working in brand strategy, web design and search engine optimisation for over ten years. In that time, my team and I have built and optimized over 100 high-converting WordPress websites. 

In the 2 years we’ve worked together, I’ve helped your organic search engine traffic increase significantly (take a look at a snapshot of our results further down). I know your website and your content like the back of my hand and would love a chance to continue the work I started until someone in-house is ready to take over.

Your Questions answered

How will we communicate and collaborate?
We will communicate by email, and share information and data through the Airtable base you own and manage. If you hire me to optimise content, I will do this directly in your WordPress website (with the option for you to approve content before it gets published or updated).
What results can we expect?

We will lay out an SEO strategy and lay out a plan according to your needs and our research.

Results will depend on how well you follow the plan and implement my recommendations.

I aim to increase the number of keywords for which you appear on the first page of Google search results, so more searchers have the opportunity to click and visit your website.

I expect to maintain or gain traffic from organic search, depending on the plan you choose.

How much work is involved on our end?

We will need your full cooperation and regular feedback throughout the process

You will need to:

Be available for a monthly call

Provide your list of content ideas for quarterly planning and research

Implement optimization recommendations (lower priced plans)


Who will work on our project
Mellissa (based in Spain) will take the lead on SEO strategy, research and consulting. My assistant Nicky Finn will also provide us with additional research behind the scenes, but will not need full access to your assets. She adheres to the same level of confidentiality as I do.
What are the payment terms?

Your investment can be paid monthly or quarterly.

After you accept our proposal, we will send you the first invoice.

We invoice in Euros and accept payments via, bank transfer or card.

When can we get started?

If and when you’re ready to proceed, please email us to accept the proposal. You will receive your contract and first invoice within 48 hours (business days), as well as a link to schedule our first call. We can usually get started within one week.

How does our collaboration benefit the planet?

We are passionate about reducing our impact on the environment and giving back.

Part of the revenue for this project will go towards international tree-planting initiatives and helps support us to offset our own carbon footprint.

This project will enable us to plant at least 26 trees quarterly.
