    Full 360° SEO Analysis & Strategy

    Price is $7,000 USD/Each

    Traffic dropped? Getting fewer new patients? Lesser competitors outranking you? A comprehensive plastic surgery SEO analysis and strategy is the most effective way to determine what's hurting your rankings and how to fix it.

    What You Get

    This service is ideal if you want a better understanding of how visible you are online and how you can improve your organic traffic. This program includes:

    • Technical SEO Audit

      I review your technical infrastructure, such as page speed, site security, crawl errors, usability issues, and mobile responsiveness.

    • On-Page SEO Audit

      I analyze your on-page SEO signals, including the HTML code, page titles, URL structure, meta-data, and other page elements Google looks for.

    • Content SEO Audit

      I examine your content quality, such as topical relevance, search intent, level of comprehensiveness, credentialization, and user experience.

    • Off-Page SEO Audit

      I investigate your off-page SEO signals, including backlinks, brand mentions, online reputation, peer recognition, and patient reviews.

    • Local SEO Audit

      I verify your local search visibility, such as map listings, business directories, and NAP citations (i.e., name, address, and phone number).

    • Website Structure Audit

      I look at your site architecture, such as content organization, topical clustering, user journey, site navigation, and internal linking.

    • Search Performance Audit

      I measure your search traffic metrics, including ranking positions, traffic analytics, search impressions, clickthrough rates, and bounce rates.

    • Competitive Gap Analysis

      I dissect and compare your biggest online competitors, such as their SEO signals, content value, keyword rankings, and gap opportunities.

    • Keyword Research Analysis

      I identify questions your audience is asking, topics they want to know more about, and content ideas that will answer their queries.

    • Manual Penalty Assessment

      I uncover ranking penalties, such as for unnatural links, spam/thin content, hacked pages, and deceptive tactics (i.e., cloaking).

    • Implementation Strategy

      I provide you with a list of suggestions, fixes, and actionable recommendations to help improve your SEO performance.

    How It Works

    You get a thorough, high-level report with improvements you can implement either independently or with my support (see ongoing SEO advisory below).

    • You start with an SEO intake form. As we begin our work together, you will need to complete a brief questionnaire that will allow me to gather all the information I need to perform a detailed discovery and audit.
    • Allow up to three months for your report. Typically, they take two months to complete. However, some may take more time depending on the size and scope. (Light audits take one month.) I do not guarantee timelines.
    • Your report is 100% custom-written. It's not an automated or outsourced report. I conduct SEO audits manually with the help of some tools. I may include screenshots, but I customize the report for your situation.
    • You get a 90-minute review meeting. You and your team get a 1.5-hour virtual meeting to ask questions, request clarifications, or get direction with implementation (if needed). Limited to one session only.

    Pricing and Terms

    Price is at $7,000 USD/each for a single site of up to 1,000 pages. For larger sites, please book a discovery call for a price. All fees are 100% payable in advance. If within the first 30 days you're unsatisfied for any reason, I'll refund my fee in full.

    Light SEO Audit & Review

    Price is $3,000 USD/Each

    I recognize that not all plastic surgeons and medical aesthetic clinics require a full-on, in-depth SEO audit and strategy. Sometimes, a light SEO audit and quick review of all the issues that you need to address may suffice.

    This service is perfect if you have an SEO team or strategy already, or you currently work with an agency and you're just looking for neutral, outside expertise to help you verify their work and/or to make informed decisions.

    A light SEO audit and review can take about two weeks. You get a document with all the most important changes and suggested improvements. However, this service does not have a review meeting. (See coaching call below.)

    Ongoing SEO Consulting

    Starting at $5,000 USD/Month

    Access highly specialized SEO expertise while avoiding costly mistakes along the way. You and your team not only gain expert insights but also future-proof your site against volatile search engine updates and traffic fluctuations.

    You and anyone on your team have unlimited anytime access to me via phone, email, chat (such as Slack), or text message. I usually respond within minutes, but allow 24 hours for a response if I'm too busy. Here's what's included:

    • Scheduled office hours for team calls or group video meetings.

    • Access to my personal network of vetted SEO specialists.
    • Help in sourcing new suppliers if my network is unavailable.

    • I'll analyze your traffic, rankings, and key performance indicators.
    • I'll then decide the best plan of action to improve your results.
    • We’ll define your goals, allocate a budget, and create projects.
    • You'll have direct access to my network of vetted SEO specialists.
    • You pay suppliers directly as I never markup or take a commission.
    • You may send proposals, reports, and materials for me to review.
    • Every quarter, we’ll analyze your progress and plan the next one.

    Pricing and Terms

    Price starts at $5,000 USD/month with a minimum three-month commitment. All payments are 100% due in advance. Any direct expenses are extra. You may cancel with a 14-day notice to allow me to transition any work over to you.

    100% Money-Back Guarantee

    If within the first 30 days we're not a good fit or you're unsatisfied for any reason, I'll refund my fee in full. After that, there are no refunds without exceptions.

    Custom SEO Projects

    Variable Pricing

    If what you're looking for doesn't fit into the above, a custom project may be more appropriate. These are ideal for challenging projects you don't have the time or available expertise to tackle. Projects may include things like:

    • Fixing a tricky problem.
    • Hiring the right SEO/marketing talent.
    • Improving a complex site (e.g., ecommerce).
    • Revamping a larger website (e.g., 1,000+ pages).
    • Developing a longer-term SEO strategy.
    • Auditing other areas of your marketing.
    • Developing a new positioning strategy.
    • And much more.

    Whether it's dealing with a unique situation or meeting an ambitious goal, together we'll find the right solution for your practice or website.

    Carl Seleborg, CEO, Das Cask Whisky

    "Michel provided me some highly valuable insights at a critical time, helping me transition from a networking-based sales strategy to an online model. He did so in a very friendly manner and with clarity and simplicity that only comes from deep, genuine expertise. I learned about Michel from a book and I subscribed to his newsletter, which is so good I actually print some of his emails and read them in the evening. If you are looking for an SEO expert, I'm very confident Michel can help."

    "Michel Fortin is my favorite marketing expert and copywriter. He is a friend, but I was reading his stuff long before he was a friend. I have paid him a lot to help me get paid a lot. He’s the real deal and has the longevity as a copywriter to prove it. I've personally quarterbacked over five seven-figure promotions based on his model, so I am a direct recipient of his work."

    "I've worked with Michel for close to two years now. He took over the SEO, copywriting, and maintenance of our websites at BigTimeMurder.com and ZoomMystery.com. In those two years, he has helped us tremendously with improving our websites and lead generation. He has continuously championed our company's marketing efforts, particularly at a time when we were hit by the pandemic slowdown. His contribution extends well beyond the scope of his role, and I highly recommend Michel as a marketing strategist and business advisor."

    "Very few people can match Michel's knowledge of sales and marketing. Fewer still can add an astute understanding of basic business principles to that marketing mix. And almost none can have all those things plus the level of integrity he brings to the table. I trust Michel implicitly; I would hire him without hesitation, and I recommend him unreservedly."
