4 Extra Bank Holidays? That Ain’t So Bad!

By | News, Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

I’ve got a rule that I don’t do party political when I’m blogging. So I’ll try my best to remain as objective as possible whilst speaking about the Labour Party’s 2017 manifesto pledge to increase the number of Bank Holiday’s to 12 if they are elected.

The reason I feel obliged to get into this debate is because I carried out some research on this last year as part of a campaign concept creation for a certain absence management software firm, so I’ve spent many hours getting a perspective on this.

The basic premise of the campaign was to educate business owners about the benefits of employees taking time off. I believed this would facilitate the creation of a campaign that wasn’t overly sales orientated, but which was well aligned to the core functionality of the product, and which was also contrary to the prevailing machismo of entrepreneurial literature – at least enough to make business owners sit up and take notice.  Read More

My Women In Business Group Mentoring Session

By | News, Rossendale, Social Media Marketing, Thoughts | No Comments

Well, I’ve had a rather exciting day today, so I thought I’d pen you a quick blog to tell you all about it. I know, I know; you don’t deserve me.


So, what have I been up to that’s been so important? I got a free lunch for one thing, and very nice it was too. Suitably vegetarian. Besides that – and possibly more importantly – I also got an incredibly useful mentoring session on how to make an impact in business. Plus, I met some lovely people too. What more can you ask for on a Wednesday in mid-March?  Read More

Freelance Social Media Marketing Consultant

By | Rossendale, Social Media Marketing | 7 Comments

Is your social media really working for you? We all know the younger generation are social media natives, but most business owners and even many marketers haven’t got the time to keep up with all the latest trends in social media. And even if you do feel up to speed, are your Tweets, Posts, Snaps, Pins, Links actually doing your business any good? If you’re not sure on any of these points, you’re in luck!

My name is Rachel Weinhold, as well as being GrowTraffic’s resident copywriting queen, I’m also our freelance social media marketing consultant. I want to help your social media get the cut through your business deserves.

The web has been changing for a number of years and the search marketers of the world (such as seo consultants like Simon) have inevitably been increasingly working on social media for clients. That’s how GrowTraffic got going in this sphere.

Social media has a very real affect on the search engine optimisation of a website and it’s likely that this will only get more important as time goes on. But as a freelance social media consultant I’m not just here to think about social as a seo tactic. Social media is about much more than that, it encompasses everything from direct response through to lead generation and from brand awareness through to content distribution.

Whilst Simon doesn’t often get involved in the day to day delivery of social media marketing strategies, he brings a wealth of experience as an inhouse marketing manager for a number of leading brand, in which he has often been solely responsible for both organic and paid social media strategy.

Social Media Optimisation Consultants

GrowTraffic offers a complete social media service, from social media consultancy services, where we enter your organisation assisting you and your team to implement a robust social media plan with training and processes, through to the full on tactical implementation of social as part of your digital marketing strategy.

As with any campaign that GrowTraffic works on we believe in using a data driven approach both in terms of generating ideas for social marketing but also when optimising and reporting on the effectiveness of activity.

GrowTraffic is all about approaching digital marketing from a copy orientated strategic content perspective and we do this socially as well. Our social media strategies are largely based on the notion that we can create the kind of content that will engage and resonate with your target audience.

How a social media marketing consultant operates

Although every social consultant is going to operate in a different manner – and we will work to make our service unique to your operation – there are some processes we go through every time. These processes include:

  1. Carry out social media audit including competitor analysis
  2. Develop social strategy
  3. Create social media messaging framework
  4. Develop a list of influencers
  5. Target influencers
  6. Distribute content encouraging influencer amplification
  7. Optimise content based on what works

How you can work with GrowTraffic’s Social Media Consultancy

There are a number of ways in which I can work with you and how you can work with GrowTraffic more broadly. Here are some of the some of the ways we can work together on your social media marketing:

  • Inhouse contractor – if you want someone to come and work in your department I can come in on a part time or full time basis, depending on capacity within GrowTraffic at any one time.
  • Retained social media marketing – if you want someone on hand at all times, but who’s not based in your office we can work with you in this capacity.
  • Project by project basis – if you just don’t have the resource within your business and you know your latest marketing campaign needs more support then we will take up some of the slack.

I’ve got a good feel for what works on social and what doesn’t. I’ve tried loads of different kinds of things, some have excelled many, most have done as expected, many have failed to hit the mark. The point is, working as a social marketing consultant means that I have the opportunity to try new things. That way I can see what works and what doesn’t and I bring this knowledge with me to every client I work with.

If you’re looking for a straight talking freelance social media marketing consultant who has been there, done that, then get in touch today.

Is Your Facebook Marketing Working?

For the last few years, ever since GrowTraffic moved across the beautiful county of Lancashire to settle in Bacup, in the Rossendale Valley, we’ve been members of the Valley at Work networking group. (If you’re a regular to my blog, you’ll know that I’ve mentioned Valley at Work before, most recently as part of the Rossendale Business Awards.)

On Wednesday, it was my turn once again to enter the bear pit and host the meeting’s discussion, and the subject suggested to me by Valley at Work Chairman, Rob, as one that would be useful for the other members, was social media. After a bit of discussion, we decided to make that a little bit more niche still and focus on Facebook, and specifically on how small businesses can make their Facebook efforts more effective.  Read More

Should Rossendale Businesses Create More Engaging Workplaces?

By | Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

We’ve all heard about the offices of the world’s leading tech-brands. But have you ever wondered if you should be adapting your workplace to follow these trends? Based in Bacup in Rossendale in deepest darkest east Lancashire, we don’t see many businesses embracing that ethos around here – but on a day to day basis I see this spreading from outwards from the centre of Manchester. And Rossendale really isn’t that far from Manchester.

I’ve been fortunate enough to be involved in a comprehensive research program, working with leading business psychologists and workplace consultants, reviewing the emerging phenomenon of engaging workspaces. Despite having summarised this to some extent before, in this post I wanted to summarise some of the things we learned and apply some of those thoughts to Rossendale (where I live). Read More

Kidult and Co: Rossendale’s Creative Business 2016

By | News, Rossendale, Thoughts | No Comments

So last week, on 9th November, we had a rather exciting evening here at GrowTraffic. After much build up and a lot of difficult judging (some may call it arguing!), it was finally the awards dinner itself for the 2016 Rossendale Business Awards, where GT were sponsoring the Creative Business category.

Held at the impressively large and well-appointed Whitworth Riverside, the evening was the culmination of much hard work by the event’s organisers, the Valley at Work business networking group, and was the perfect opportunity for Rossendale businesses to come together, let their hair down and celebrate another year’s great work. And what a celebration it was!

But in amongst all the other impressive businesses there on the night was the one that shone out the most for us, the winner of our Creative Business award in fact, the fabulous Kidult and Co. I met up with the girls earlier this week to talk about the business, their success and what it meant to win this award. Read More

Affordable SEO Web Design

By | Rossendale, Search Engines, SEO, Web Design | One Comment

There is no getting around it, every business needs a website. It helps prospective customers find you, like you, and contact you. And by using GrowTraffic for your web build, your business is more likely to be found on search engines.

Whether it is a one page business card website, or a complex eCommerce site, we can help get you online with our affordable SEO web design services.

Why Choose GrowTraffic For Your New Website?

Based in Rossendale, in the beautiful East Lancashire, we specialise in all things SEO and have a web design service that can really add value to your website build. We only work with exceptional designers whose work we can guarantee and, as we collaborate from the start of a project, we can ensure that all the websites we build are eye catching yet functional.

Our intention in everything we do is to make sure that your new website attracts traffic and then converts it. From simple, no-nonsense websites to large e-commerce sites, GrowTraffic has helped design and build them all. We make websites that make you money.

Beautiful Design

Perfectly designed websites get your message across to your current and future clients. Your new web build will match your business type, whether fun and creative, or professional and neat. When designing your website, we make sure it will stand the test of time, and not have elements that will look old fashioned in a couple of years.

We often use WordPress to build websites because they give you most control over your SEO and content, but we can build on any platform you like.

GrowTraffic will work with you to make your website everything you want it to be to perfectly represent your business.

User Friendly

User friendly web design gets your visitor to the right pages. Having a website with loads of traffic is great but it is pointless if they aren't converting into sales or enquiries. This can happen if the website is not designed with a user in mind. Most web designers only pay attention to the design and functionality of the website, but we make sure people can actually use it too!

We use our expert tactics to make sure your web visitors end up where you want them, whether that is the contact form or the check out page.

Well Written Content

Anyone can write content for a website, but how do you know the content is going to be read, understood, and acted upon? How can you be sure the keywords you put into the copy are words that are actually being searched for, rather than what you think are being searched for.

As content experts, we will write your website's copy around well research keywords, in a tone of voice that is suitable for your target audience. Getting people to read through a website is harder than you might think, and content that is overly formal, or sloppy, will put potential customers off.

Using GrowTraffic for your web build means you will be confident your content will get you noticed.

SEO Optimised

Getting a website to rank means making sure all the search-engine friendly boxes are ticked and the content on the website is plentiful, well written, and totally unique. Usually, new websites struggle to rank, but having them properly optimised and transferred at the beginning means your investment has a better chance of giving you a return more quickly.

But most web design agencies just put your website live without thinking how it is going to rank or properly managing the transfer. And why would they, it isnt their filed of expertise.

Here at GrowTraffic, we make sure your website will rank by optimising it before it goes live. Not only that, but we will sort out all the little fiddly bits that get your website ranking and manage the migration from the old to the new website.

We can work with your existing developer, or design your website from scratch.

Flexible Payment Packages

We understand that a website is a huge investment, especially if your business is a start up with little or no cash. it is a Catch 22; you need the website to make some money, but you need the money to make the website.

That is why we offer low prices for small websites that you can add to as you become more established. Our packages are fully tailorable to suit any budget and objective.

Plus, you can spread the cost of your web build across 3 or 6 months, making it the perfect solution for any business.

Some Of Our Previous Web Builds

The British Sri Lankan Association (BRISLA) had a new website designed and created from scratch.

North West Digital wanted a sleek and contemporary new website.
Guy Wakeling Jewellery requested an eCommerce site that was easy to add new products to.
Sheffield Dry Cleaners wanted their existing website given a fresh new look without changing the content.

There’s absolutely no way of getting around this; in this modern age of technology, it’s essential that all businesses have a web presence of one form or another. We can’t stress that enough and most of you will be well aware of this already, but for those of you who are trying to fight against the tide, now is the time to concede defeat gracefully and jump on the bandwagon.

Whatever shape or size your business comes in and whoever your target audience is, having a successful website is crucial if you want your customer base to grow and your revenue to thrive. Building a website that works for your company and your customers is a huge undertaking though and can be a daunting task, especially as websites now need to be exceptional and regularly maintained in order to rank time and again.

Whilst almost anyone can design and build a website (there are loads of companies out there that will help you build a ‘bog standard’ website quickly and cheaply), very few people are dedicated SEO Consultants who can ensure that your website is search engine optimised from the very beginning.

And after all, what is the point of having a website if no one can find it?

Almost anyone can build a website these days, and there are some really good web design agencies out there who can build beautiful, high functioning websites. We should know, we work with a lot of them in Rossendale and Rotherham.

But not many web design agencies optimise your website before it goes live. And optimising a site once it has gone live is much more difficult (and therefore expensive).

By using GrowTraffic’s web design services for, or even during, your web build, we can make sure your key words are targeted to give you the best rate of return, that your copy is well written for your target audience, and that your site is Google friendly and will be ranked favourably.

A new website does not rank, and getting it to rank requires skill. It is a real shame that so many websites are launched with poor optimisation and never really bring in the customers to repay the cost of having the site built. By using GrowTraffic in the first instance, your future customers are much more likely to find your new website.

GrowTraffic can work with your existing web designer to make sure the website is search engine friendly, or can build the site ourselves.

Freelance SEO Consultant

By | Rossendale, SEO

My name is Simon Dalley, I’m a freelance SEO consultant. If your website does not rank highly then it’s not reaching potential customers. In today’s market, even small to medium business owners can’t afford to rest on their laurels; your website needs to work hard and it needs to compete with the best.

If you’re unsure as to how to get your website to rank higher, then you need a Search Engine Optimisation consultant to show you where you’re going wrong and to give you helpful, constructive advice on how to remedy this.

So, if you can’t make head nor tail of the all the advice out there on the net, and if you can’t afford the monthly retainer figure of a company, then you probably need a Freelance SEO Consultant!

Here at GrowTraffic, search engine optimisation is what we do and, with the combined skills of my experience as a search marketing specialist and Rachel’s search orientated copywriting, we pride ourselves on being exceptionally good at it (even if we do say so ourselves!).

Learn more about our SEO consultancy services here.

What Does a Freelance SEO Consultant Do?  

Freelance SEO consultant services mean different things to different people. As search engine optimisation specialists, GrowTraffic will carry out a full audit of your current website to see where it is under-performing or if certain search marketing work could help it achieve a better ranking position.

Once we have analysed your site, we can give you some suggestions on how to improve it or what you could do differently. We look at this from the perspective of a technical SEO consultant as well as considering the offsite requirements – including outreach and link building. Often, we can make some of these changes for you or can complete a contract of work that will improve your position, however, occasionally, you may have to make some of the changes yourself (although we’ll always show you how and are always on the other end of the phone if you get stuck!).

As we work on a freelance basis, you won’t be tied into lengthy contracts and, as we both work from home, we don’t have huge overheads to cover. This means that we can bring you the benefits of an expensive agency at our normal consultancy hourly rate.

Getting a freelancer in to take on this side of your web marketing is a big thing, so why not call us on 07495 181007 and we can discuss it in more detail; we’re sure you’ll see how passionate we are about search marketing.

Creative SEO Consultants

Don’t just get in touch if you need someone to work on your search marketing for you; ranking well is about being creative and original, but coming up with tactics can be exhausting and trying things ad hoc can be risky.

With our combined experience as digital marketing consultants, we have seen a lot and we know what works and what doesn’t. Why not give us a call if you if you need to speak to someone?

SEO Consultant

More and more, good optimisation isn’t just a case of tweaking things in the background or pointing some links at a website. It’s a case of creating the best possible website for the organisation with the website optimisation consultant needing to work with many stakeholders including website owners, their staff and contributors.

We understand that many businesses approach us because they need an expert to help them grow. However, both Rachel, Hannah and I passionately believe in giving the businesses we work with the information and tools they need to take on their online marketing themselves. By doing this, we ensure that websites will rank well not just now, but in the future too.

I understand there are a lot of people out there that say they know about marketing and SEO, but I have a track record. All you have to do is search me out on Google and you should see my history in search speaks volumes. Plus if you want to check me out further, take a look at my profile on one of the biggest SEO communities and information websites in the world; Moz, where I’m regularly ranked around 200 in the community of 18,000 contributors.

Contact Us

We’re based in Bacup in Rossendale – which is in East Lancashire – but I don’t just SEO Lancashire businesses websites; I’ve worked as a UK SEO consultant for organisations throughout the UK (and a few further afield!). But wherever you are, we hope you’ll think we’re the best SEO consulting company there is!

SEO Lancashire

By | Rossendale, SEO

If you’re a Lancashire based business it stands to reason you’d want to use a local supplier for your search engine optimisation (SEO) services.

For the most part I’ve worked and lived in Lancashire all my life. I was born in Preston, grew up in Euxton near Chorley, have worked on the Fylde Coast near Blackpool, Leyland and in the beautiful Ribble Valley.

Whilst these days, as a Lancashire SEO consultant I generally work from Greater Manchester (be fair, it’s still part of historic County Palatine of Lancashire). GrowTraffic moved to Bacup in East Lancashire in 2013 and is headed up by myself and Rachel – who writes awesome SEO orientated copy – and from where we provide digital marketing services to Rossendale, as well as businesses from further afield. And by that I mean the whole of the UK, not just Burnley!

Simon Dalley

By | Rossendale, Search Engines, SEO

My name is Simon Dalley and most of is my fault….

I founded GrowTraffic years ago (something like 2009); I’m a Marketer with specialisms as an SEO Consultant, Search Marketer, Digital Consultant, Finding Strategist and many things in between. I’ve helped businesses throughout the UK grow traffic that converts.

Originally from Chorley and now working in Manchester, I currently live near Bacup (East Lancashire). In my everyday role, as the Marketing Manager of BrightHR, one of the UK’s leading HR software solutions providers.

What is Search Marketing?

Search marketing is what I do. It’s what I’m really passionate about. I know site visuals are important and make all the difference (and visuals now factor into SEO), that’s why I push the designers I work with to be truly brilliant. However, as an SEO Consultant, two things are always key to me; the website’s usability and how a search engine will interact with it. Ultimately, there is a massive convergence here.

What’s a Finding Strategist?

Although search marketing (SEO & PPC) is still the core of everything I do, there has been a shift in the way that people use the internet over the past few years; just think, social media websites such as Facebook and Twitter didn’t even exist a few years back and now they command a considerable percentage of internet usage. Additionally, mobile penetration is growing at a rate of knots and this changes how we perceive the internet user and conversely how the internet user understands a business online.

As a Finding Strategist, my role is to review every possible route a user can take to find a website; it is in my capacity as an SEO Consultant that this ability really shines through.

My Internet Marketing Experience

I’ve developed a wide breadth and depth of experience in online marketing over the years, working in both B2B and B2C organisations. I’ve helped a diverse range of organisations with online marketing from automotive manufacturers, automotive publications, hosting providers, debt management companies, solicitors, sports clubs, hotel chains and many more.

As most of the testimonials I have received will state, it’s my understanding as an SEO consultant that really adds value to a business.

My Work

Over the years, I have worked on a huge range of projects and have amassed a number of qualifications, the details of which can be seen on my CV.

In addition to my day job and the work I do for GrowTraffic, I have my finger in several other pies. Amongst others, I own the websites SEO Auditing and Inbound Marketing Consultant,   as well as my creative writing website,

I am also working with a number of colleagues in the industry to get a new awards programme off the ground, The Digital Awards, which will reward excellence in digital application. If you would like to hear more about this or think you may be able to help then please get in touch.

Generally speaking, in all my spheres, I love to work with like-minded business owners and take on projects where I’m sure the outcomes can be made to match investment and ROI expectations.

Ultimately, I love talking to people about Search Engine Optimisation (SEO), Pay-Per-Click (PPC) and other areas of Internet Marketing and I’d be happy to chew the cud with you to discuss any search engine marketing or digital consultancy issues or requirements you may have.

Let’s have a chat…

Whether you’re in need of an SEO Consultant or just have an issue that’s causing you a headache then I’d be happy to give you some help or offer my advice; please either give me a ring on 07411 420 740, email me at or use the contact form on the website to get in touch.

Welcome to GrowTraffic

Most businesses have, or should have, a website. But a website is pointless investment if no one can find it on search engines. Or worse, they find the website but don’t like it enough to use it!

That is where GrowTraffic can help.

GrowTraffic are a digital marketing agency that helps businesses increase the traffic to their website through SEO, content marketing and brand consultation.

Content Creation

Regularly uploading content is one of the best ways to sustainably grow your online presence, making it the smart choice for those looking to grow their business on a budget.

Check out our pages here for more details.

Link Building

Having high quality backlinks on your website is important, but doing anything other than quality link building will damage your rankings.

Have a look here to find out more.

Social Media

Posting on social media is easy, but generating a following, getting engagement, and growing your business through it is not. We can help you grow your online presence.

Have a look here to see how.

Why does my business need SEO?

Most people set up a business because they want to make it a success. There are a few who do it because they want to tick over, but lets assume you are here because you want to grow your business.

Business growth comes from a variety of places, but by only targeting one of them, for example word of mouth, you are severely limiting your growth potential.

Many business owners think their website and social media presence is just a business card, but with more and more tech savvy millennials entering the workplace, they need to be so much more than that.

They need to be your shop window, your megaphone, and your brochure. They are your most effective way of speaking to the customer, regardless of whether you are B2B or B2C.

A good website and social media presence gets across your brand and services, and is your first step towards closing that deal.

SEO and digital marketing makes that easier. Without SEO, its very difficult to show up on search engines. Without digital marketing, whatever does show up might not be effective or correct. Having one without the other is a bit pointless.

That is why GrowTraffic offer a whole range of services designed to help your business grow.

They are extremely helpful and take the time to explain the technical world of Google etc. as well as offering a plan that fits in with your business requirements and budget.

SEO for Small Businesses

Here at GrowTraffic we pride ourselves on being friendly and approachable. We aren’t smug city centre SEO agents, kidding ourselves that what we do is a dark art. And nor are we bedroom, freelance SEO agents who find it hard to communicate with clients.

We are a small, but growing agency with a diverse skill set and can handle any size of clients with a personable, professional service you would struggle to find anywhere else.

We believe it is our approach to our customers that makes us stand out from the crowd. We don’t bamboozle with jargon, we don’t oversell, and we would never suggest a course of action if we don’t believe it is the right thing to do.

We hear so much about SEO agencies who just want to take the money and do very little for it, or flog pay per click, but that’s not us.

Have a look here to see what makes us unique.

Friendly SEO Consultants

Many business owners believe SEO and digital marketing is reserved for only large businesses with huge marketing budgets.

Here at GrowTraffic, we believe every business should be able to grow, regardless of budget, target audience, or experience.

That is why we have fully tailorable packages to suit all budgets. We guide you through the entire process, so you don’t have to worry about knowing the ropes yourself.

Not only that, but we will train you on the basics of content creation and SEO, so you can manage the monthly spend and use your internal resources to full effect.

We are here to help your business grow.

Additionally, if you’re having any issues with your existing website or are in need of a new website altogether, then we’re always happy to take a look and offer our advice, with no strings attached, so please get in touch.

About Us

By | Content Marketing, Inbound Marketing, Rossendale, SEO, Social Media Marketing, Web Design

Originally based in Chorley near Preston, we moved our digital marketing agency to Bacup in Rossendale in 2013. Whilst basing ourselves in Rossendale, we provide digital marketing services, specialising in SEO, content marketing, social media marketing and web design throughout Lancashire, Yorkshire, & UK as a whole.

GrowTraffic was founded by digital marketing specialist and SEO expert Simon Dalley in 2009, with content queen and grammar-expert Rachel Weinhold, coming on board more recently. Since then we have added more members to the team, with Hannah  joining in summer of 2017, and Elicia soon afterwards in the Sheffield office.

Although we’re an internet marketing agency and consultancy in one of the most beautiful parts of East Lancashire, we don’t work exclusively with businesses from Lancashire, and have clients from around the country.

GrowTraffic provides in-depth analysis of your web presence to clearly show how your site is performing, coming up with detailed plans to dominate the search engines through joined up copywriting-focussed, content marketing orientated SEO campaigns.

At GrowTraffic we don’t make promises we can’t deliver. We come up with a strategy, collaborating with business owners and based on our experience. We recognise you probably won’t be clients forever, but we would like to think that by working closely with businesses in an open and honest manner, we can create long-term relationships which benefit your business time and again.

We are always happy to have a chat, and will offer honest advice without agenda. And,unlike some companies,we don’t charge every time you pick up the phone to us-client or not!

We want make the SEO world a better place. We don’t charge astronomical prices, or have unreasonable contract terms, and we wont ever sell you something you don’t need.
