SEO Web Content

Your website content needs to do four things:

  • Sell your offering
  • Connect with your customers
  • Get across trust and quality
  • Help you to get found on the web.

Your written content works in tandem with your beautiful images, design and branding to do a great marketing job.

But even the most beautiful site needs to be found. That’s where our search-friendly SEO content can help.


SEO stands for 'search engine optimisation'. SEO content is specially written to boost your website's rankings by attracting search engine love.

That doesn't mean keyword stuffing and mysterious metrics designed only for bots. Modern search engines reward fresh, useful, original content that people want to find. Algorithms are trained by your site visitors' clicks and responses, as well as the attractiveness of the content, and technical performance.

So to help drive your business rankings in search engines, web content writers need strong SEO as well as writing skills.

We can help you with this in three ways:

  • Written SEO content – to launch your website on a strong footing
  • SEO and style makeovers – to boost your current content with keywords and marketing pizzazz
  • Blogging – to attract hungry bots with fresh, original content.

We can also work with your current site's Google Analytics and identify keywords to target.

Business Case Studies

Case studies are a powerful marketing tool to bring your business story to life with a real example. A case study is more engaging, authentic and persuasive than a broad claim, and future customers can more easily identify with the client’s journey. This makes case studies especially valuable for complex services and B2B.

Case studies are tightly focused, allowing you to profile market segments, different services, and new offerings.
They’re also versatile, with many practical uses:

  • Print as leaflets
  • Email to prospects
  • Post on your website site
  • Promote on social media
  • Use as evidence for funding and referrals.

All in all, they’re a highly cost-effective way of reaching out to customers.

Do you need to

  • Showcase an award-winning project?
  • Produce a suite of examples for your sales team?
  • Ignite interest in a new product or service?

Texthouse writers are trained journalists and experienced interviewers, with a great ear for story. They’ll get the best from interviewing you or your client, and shape it into a compelling narrative, pulling in supporting evidence and quotes for a stylish, high-impact promotion.

Great design is vital, too, so if you need professional layout, we can help.

And it goes without saying that your case studies will include search-friendly SEO keywords for web rankings.
