Our SEO Agency has been helping businesses in West Sussex reach the top of Google for over 16 years
With our Head Honcho, Beth Nash, starting out as a traditional marketer back in the late 90’s, search engines such as Yahoo! and Ask Jeeves were in full swing, and Google was about to take over the world.
Although most of the marketing happening at the time was still very much weighted to traditional, by the time Smart Monkey started in 2006, SEO was very much alive and a part of the service we provided to West Sussex businesses. Over the last 16 years, SEO has changed dramatically, and we have been lucky enough to experience, and be a part of, the rise of digital marketing.
Our traditional marketing roots and Chartered Marketer status with the Chartered Institute of Marketing, have given us the extra edge in helping us to master the art of SEO and ensure that we are always focused on the customer to provide the end-results for your business.
Why do you need a West Sussex SEO Agency?
It’s a good question – why do you need a West Sussex SEO agency? You could just go and optimise your own website – there are countless articles, videos and courses on how to gain top rankings for your website. But it would take you hours and hours to get up to speed with Google’s parameters, learn the in’s and out’s of technical SEO, to become an expert in content strategy, and to know how to build a good quality backlink.
We have done all this hard work for you – we have over 16 years’ experience helping businesses like yours gain top results in the search engines. We know what to do with canonicals and broken URLs, we can make sure your site is adhering to Google’s EEAT parameters (especially important if you are a professional services company such as an accountancy firm, financial adviser, solicitor or law firm or any ecommerce firm), we have the industry-leading SEO tools that help us devise a content strategy that is going to bring your target audience to your site, and we have direct contacts with high domain authority sites to help your website gain a quality backlink profile.
We hold multiple qualifications and certificates from digital leaders including Google, Bing and Moz, we are Google Partners, SEMRush Accredited and hold Chartered Marketer status with The Chartered Institute of Marketing.

Why should I choose Smart Monkey as my West Sussex SEO Agency?
We believe that you should choose Smart Monkey as your West Sussex SEO agency because we are an open, honest and transparent company with a proven track-record of helping businesses get their website to the top of Google.
The majority of our clients have come to us because they have not got the results they want with their current agency or SEO company, or they are paying high fees for little return. There are plenty of agencies out there promising results and saying they are SEO experts, but there are only a handful in West Sussex that are true experts in SEO.
As a niche independent SEO agency, we specialise solely in search engine optimisation supported with content marketing, digital PR, paid media and paid social. It is all we do, and without getting too carried away blowing our own trumpet, we’re really good at it
The proof is in the pudding – here are some of the results we have achieved for our clients:
- From zero visibility in London to over 57 enquiries per month for London-based accountancy firm
- 104% increase in online enquiries for Sussex stone company
- 186% increase in organic search traffic for groundworks contractor
- 25% increase in organic search traffic for office space company
- 61% increase in online enquiries for Kent bookkeeping firm

How much do your SEO services cost?
Unfortunately, and I know it is not what you are going to want to hear, but “it depends” is the most accurate answer to how SEO services will cost.
There are many factors that can affect how much time, and therefore how much investment is needed, to get a site ranking on the first page of Google. A well-established website with a strong domain authority (good quality backlink profile) in a not too competitive industry is going to get results far quicker and easier than a new website, entering a highly competitive industry, up against websites that have a high domain authority and large amounts of content.
As a starting point during our initial free consultation process, we will always carry out in-depth research on your website to understand what needs to happen to help you reach your goals before we provide you with an estimate.
We do not provide ‘SEO packages’ with ‘starting from’ pricing like other SEO agencies. Every website is in a different place – our job is to understand where it is and what needs to happen to get it performing how you want, not to start a package of support based on your budget. If you are operating in a highly competitive industry and you opt for a £350 per month SEO package with another SEO company, you might as well just burn your money. We will be honest with you – we won’t let you burn your money.
To summarise what great SEO and content marketing needs to deliver results and how we support this:
- Experience (all of our team members have 5+ years SEO experience – we don’t employ juniors to work directly on client accounts, so your budget is not being used to train people)
- Talent (our team members are highly trained, most of our team come from larger agencies in the nearby digital hub of Brighton)
- Sufficient time (an inexperienced team with 50 hours wouldn’t get very far, an experienced team with 5 hours wouldn’t get very far – the balance has got to be right)
What happens when you enquire about our SEO services?
When you pick up the phone or type out our form to contact us, our first action will be to set up a call with you where we will spend 15-20 minutes or so asking questions about your business. We will then go away and carry out our initial top-level research to see what the landscape looks like so that we can get an estimate of how much time we think we will need to help you get results.
We do this so that we can be sure we can get the results you need, with the budget you have available. We won’t just start working with you if we don’t think we can make an impact, so at this point, if your sector is too competitive and your budget too low, we will tell you.
We will also set expectations with you. Organic traffic is 100% free and tends to provide higher conversion rates as users prefer real results to ads. However, good SEO requires a lot of research and work, and competition is strong for most types of websites. It can also take time to pay off – SEO is not going to get you from zero visibility to the top of page one overnight.
If we believe we can make an impact for you, and you are happy with the budget estimate, we will carry out more detailed research and pull together our insights and recommendations to run through with you. Then once we have the go ahead to work with you, our team will get to work on the essential data gathering and research that will enable us to create your SEO strategy.
