It’s easy to spend money with a SEO services company. It’s not so easy to get results.

Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Services

Case Study – Best Chicago Properties

Our very first search engine marketing client was also a Web Development client. We built their new website, but they lost all their Google-Juice in the transfer. Working with the site owner, we helped return them to near the top of the brutally competitive Chicago Real Estate search market.

A proactive attack yields astonishing results


We charge $135 an hour for our Services. We start with a two-hour site evaluation followed by a one-hour conference call to discuss our findings and give preliminary results. Only if you find the results encouraging will we then proceed with an in-depth analysis with a long-range plan.

You pay us when we work, not endless monthly fees


Once we’ve worked together to create a search engine marketing plan we will continue to monitor and offer suggestions on your time schedule. If you want to talk once a week for an hour, have quarterly meetings, or do it all yourself, it is your decision. Our standard rate applies.

Reporting, reporting, reporting

Further SEO Services

Once the search engine marketing stage is complete, we help transition you into taking those new site-visitors and making them customers. Just getting people to your site is only the first step in the process. If you stop there, you really haven’t accomplished anything at all.

Websites that work on all fronts


We offer training sessions for your employees on the best search engine marketing strategies. This way, they can help maintain your site.

Search Engine Marketing Plan

If you are finding the modern age of search engine marketing, search engine marketing services, and general practices to be a little confusing, then you are not alone. This wide-spread confusion has spawned an entire industry of consulting companies that promise search engine marketing and service success.
At Acumen, we will help you navigate this expensive world and get your Websites optimized at a fair price.

Search engine advertising companies are filled with shady practitioners who will promise you the world for a fee. We can’t stress strongly enough that there are no easy or permanent solutions to getting search engine marketing optimized. Those who promise a quick solution are not being honest.

If you go with shady services, there is a chance for devastating repercussions from a blacklisting. Please let us help you tread these dangerous and confusing times of search engine marketing. Let us be your consulting solution. No hidden costs. No monthly fees that go on forever.

Acumen’s three hour “quick analysis” was more helpful than all our other efforts in the past combined.

Getting your page to the top of Bing and Google is a job called search engine marketing, provided by a company specializing in search engine services. It’s a difficult and an ever-changing challenge for companies, in the modern era of Google and Bing, to get their pages near the top of key-phrase searches. Both of the major search providers use secret algorithms to determine which pages rise to the top. It’s impossible to guarantee top results, but there are solid practices that will help your page rise above competitors.

We state upfront that there are no simple search engine marketing solutions. With any provider, it’s a matter of staying on top of the search game with constant vigilance. Any plan requires teamwork between the search engine services company and the site owners. Our team will help you get near the top of the search results of Bing and Google, but that’s not the complete story. After our team helps you optimize your pages for search engine marketing purposes,  we continue to work with you to engage the customers to get them to purchase your product or service.
