    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    HWM is an integrated copywriting and messaging boutique consultancy working with enterprise clients, corporates, public sector entities and startups to create messages and craft words that deliver business results.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire SEO Sherpa, and what were your goals?

    To get us found for key services through SEO without needing to budget for online ads.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select SEO Sherpa and what were the deciding factors?

    James and his team came recommended from colleagues that we trusted. They were responsive from the get-go, and offered a personal touch that is often lost in sprawling tech firms.

    Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and campaigns.

    The team have been methodical. They set out realistic goals, defined areas where we could improve ranking, and created a game plan to hit those goals. The nature of our engagement is relatively open and organic - with the idea that a noticeable improvement in ranking be seen over time.

    How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

    There have been multiple people over the years, but there is always a tech/SEO team deliving into the works, a co-ordinator, and the founder (James) himself when specific expertise or troubleshooting is required.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

    The results have been largely in line with expectations and initial forecasts. What is more impressive is the team's ability to swing into action and provide additional support in case of tech emergencies, etc., and be in your corner 100%.

    Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

    We've set up our relationship where they work autonomously for the most part given the level of trust that now exists. They provide us periodic updates and sometimes nudge us on actions we have to take. I understand that the SEO Sherpa team is happy to involve the client as much or as little as is requested.

    What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

    They're good at their job. But they're also 100% in your corner when troubleshooting tech issues, etc, even when that isn't strictly part of the remit. It's this idea that you have a partner with multiple strings to their bow that you can call upon when you need some emergency troubleshooting firepower.

    Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

    Growing pains are common to most of us, and SEO Sherpa was no exception. A few years back, there seemed to be a few points missed here and there due to team growth and churn. We're happy to report that those teething issues have been resolved and the current setup works like a well-oiled, responsive, machine.

    SEO. Double organic leads.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select SEO Sherpa and what were the deciding factors?

    Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and campaigns.

    SEO Sherpa is hands down the best SEO agency in Dubai. No one else can compete with them in terms of expertise, execution, search engine optimization know-how or customer experience. I hired them during my time at VLCC.

    My first meeting with James was very impressive as he understood the objectives very clearly and the plan and strategy was exactly how I expected it to be. It's rare to find agencies who are aligned with the business objectives.

    I was consistently impressed by the team's approach to our project, their friendliness and their singular focus on generating real business results (i.e. leads and sales and not just the vanity metrics AKA rankings "promised" by other SEO firms).

    SEO Sherpa took a truly holistic view on our project and integrated seamlessly with our internal marketing team and developers - that was something I really appreciated.

    I wholeheartedly recommended them for any size business in any industry that wants to scale. SEO Sherpa will help you grow

    POC was one person. I am sure on the back end there were more people working on tech tasks, content etc.

    The work they do is very extensive. They set realistic goals and never over promise.

    Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

    They were very transparent and respond to emails promptly.

    What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?
