I Help Businesses Grow

I can help accelerate growth by increasing your qualified organic traffic, and converting it into leads and sales.

What I Can Do For You​

As a digital marketing specialist with expertise in SEO and CRO, I can help build your exposure, boost your pipeline, and grow your revenue. As an independent consultant, I can work as an addition to your marketing team to optimize your lead generation and sales.

I Audit. ​

Using tools and checklists, I dive into your current rankings, traffic analytics, and website architecture. I conduct a UX and technical SEO audit to find any snags that need to be addressed. I then conduct some topical research, map topics to existing pages, and uncover gaps.

I Plan.

Next, I put together a series of action items to implement. But I structure my processes in such a way that they remain flexible and can easily adapt when situations and priorities change. They’re more like a framework I can manipulate rather than a plan set in stone.

I Work.

Finally, I execute the action plan, which is always focused on growth, lead generation, and sales. I follow best practices, and use a variety of tools, software, and resources to do the job. I review and adjust my plan, and provide you with ongoing reports to keep you informed.

Are We a Fit?

While I have worked in almost every major industry, from SaaS to medical clinics and everything in between, my services are ideal for:

  • Businesses with a new website but who need to optimize it properly for attracting and growing long-term organic traffic.
  • Companies with a well-performing website but who need to outrank competitors, increase their traffic, or grow their sales.
  • Marketing teams who need outside help to dominate search results, find bottlenecks that are costing them sales, migrate their site, or take their digital presence to the next level.


Out of the hundreds of testimonials I've received, here is just a few.

"I launched my website with a small list of 1,788 subscribers and was able to earn $31,523.97 within the first 24 hours. It was converting at such a high rate you wouldn't even believe me if I told you. It then went up again and brought in over $1,800 in sales within the next 24 hours."

"I can vouch that Michel Fortin's services have increased my business and sales by over $4,000,000 in the course of our relationship. Michel is my 'secret weapon' that pulls results and I can wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone ⏤ except my competitors!"

My Philosophy

Today, people search based on topics, not keywords.

Effective, long-term SEO focuses on the user's search intent. That's why I put my effort into increasing the overall qualified organic traffic rather than chasing after individual vanity keyword metrics.

When it comes to converting traffic into leads or sales, this is where UX and SEO start to interact. They share the goal of helping users to complete their tasks by providing them with relevant information.

Therefore, my approach is to first conduct a deep analysis of your website and analytics. I look at your website architecture, current rankings, navigational structure, content performance, and more.

I use a number of tools and resources to accomplish this, such as Google Analytics, SEM Rush, Ahrefs, Moz, etc. Once the audit is done, I then map out an action plan, which falls into three phases.

  1. Identify key topics and trends your target market is interested in, particularly when looking for solutions to their problems.
  2. Optimize your existing content based on that research, and create a content strategy to attract and educate prospects.
  3. Improve your conversion rates by optimizing landing pages, improving load speeds, fixing crawl errors, removing any bottlenecks, and integrating proper lead capturing devices.
