Pawel Grabowski - SaaS SEO Consultant

Hi there, great to meet you. I am an Irish-based SEO consultant working with B2B SaaS brands exclusively.

For some, I’ve planned and written an SEO-optimized copy. For others, I developed and executed complete SEO campaigns. For all, however, I helped increase their rankings, boost organic traffic, generate more signups and increase the conversion rate from Google.

As a result, most of my clients have been coming back to hire me again and again and again. Some have been doing so for years.

One reason, I believe is because I’m super easy to work with (you’ll learn more on that later on this page.) The other, because driving organic traffic requires staying on top of constant changes to Google’s core algorithm, emerging new strategies and shifts in the SaaS audience’s preferences.

I share that expertise with clients through my SEO consultancy.

My passion is helping B2B SaaS marketers drive more signups and revenue by increasing their rankings and search engine traffic.

What I Help You Achieve

I focus on generating more revenue and growth for your SaaS.

I do this by increasing the number of signups, trials or demo requests (depending on your sales process.) This, in turn, happens as a result of driving more highly-targeted traffic to your site by boosting its search visibility and rankings in Google.

To achieve the above, I work on three elements of the SEO strategy:

  • Website and On-page Optimization. I make sure that your website is readable by Google, free of any potential technical SEO errors and optimized for the right keywords.
  • SEO Copywriting. I write the content to position your pages for relevant, high-value keywords.
  • Link Development. I also increase your authority by sending relevance and quality signals through building high-quality, white hat links to your site.

Pawel exceeded my expectations by a long shot on this project. In a short period of time he provided us with a very thorough evaluation of where our site is currently, where some “Easy Wins” are, and what some concrete strategies should be going forward.  Now my team and I have a reliable roadmap for the upcoming few months in which we know our organic rankings (particularly for high intent keywords) will surely rise, and with it the rest of the business. I can’t recommend working with Pawel enough for anyone who’s serious about increasing targeted organic traffic to their site

Why SaaS Companies Choose Me As Their SEO Consultant

For one, because I have unmatched SEO and copywriting expertise in the software as a service industry. I have spent the last five years working with SaaS brands exclusively and developed a great comfort in communicating with software buyers. Overall, however, I have more than ten years of digital marketing experience (including four and a half years spent working as an in-house SEO.)

I have also written copy for SaaS brands that positioned my clients in front of their target audience in Google.

As a result, I understand the SaaS audience. I know what their challenges are and can create a detailed action plan to connect with those people in Google easily.

I also understand SaaS companies’ common search engine optimization strategies. This insight helps me beat my clients’ competition in the organic search.

My Approach to Working With Clients

Here’s the process I’d go through when working to position your SaaS brand in search.

  1. I start off by learning about your business, specific market and your business objectives.
  2. Next, I analyze your current situation – Your top keywords, rankings, traffic, and website architecture.
  3. I also analyze what your competitors are doing to identify factors that contribute to their success – Top keywords that drive them money, links, content and more.
  4. Based on the research above, I formulae a custom SEO plan to reach your objectives in your ideal timeframe. It includes a long term analysis of the factors that will ensure your brand’s continuous growth through search.
  5. Finally, I get to work at implementing it.

And implementing the SEO strategy includes (but is not limited to):

  • Auditing and optimizing the website,
  • Improving the site’s architecture,
  • Expanding its copy and developing new pages,
  • Creating the content,
  • Building links and more.

“Pawel, you did more than fill a copywriting need for us, you got results. Both of the SEO pillar pages you wrote rank on page one for competitive terms and drive tons of targeted traffic and leads. You made it easy for me to know what you needed with an easy onboarding and education process, and you were invaluable during the process by providing expertise on the subject matter. Thank you!”

Frequently Asked Questions

Well, we might be biased but we think that you do, and that’s for a simple reason. SEO allows you to grow while keeping the Cost of Customer Acquisition (CAC) under tabs.

SaaS marketing has an inherent and unfortunately, unavoidable flaw. The more you grow, the more you have to pay to acquire users. This is particularly true for freemium or trial models.

Given the typical SaaS conversion rates, you need to drive huge amounts of traffic to generate enough signups to warrant steady revenue growth. So, if you rely on paid traffic to do so, your cost of acquisition will rise continuously. It will get even bigger as you try to scale and boost the growth rate.

Using channels that do not require you to pay for every visit, like SEO, maintains a low and steady CAC even while your traffic and signups continue to grow.

Our goal is to drive your signups and revenue. Over time, as the strategy matures, you will see an uptake of signups and conversions from the organic search. This will happen because our work will drive more traffic to your site from the search engines. So, a more immediate result will be an increase in visitors landing on your site from Google. This, however, will come as a result of your content ranking well for high-value keywords. You’ll notice that in the ranking reports we’ll be sending you every month.

In short, the biggest outcomes of the SEO strategy (in the order of importance) are signups, traffic, and rankings.

Unfortunately, there is no simple answer to this. You’ll see an uptake in rankings relatively soon. But these changes mightn’t be big enough to deliver the key results – traffic and signups. Depending on your current situation, it might take a while for the rankings to raise to a level where they start bringing relevant visitors.

In general, we say that you should see some changes in traffic around 90 days after launching the strategy.

There are three factors that make us stand out:

Our focus on a single industry – SaaS. We work with SaaS brands exclusively. As a result, we have an incredibly deep understanding of the industry. We know how your target audience thinks, how they look for information online, and most importantly, how they evaluate and choose SaaS products.

All this knowledge helps us deliver successful campaigns to clients.

The problem-solving approach. We do not follow the same route with every client. Instead, we focus on your current marketing problem and devise a strategy to overcome it in the shortest time possible.

The agile approach. We identify the biggest wins and improve your search visibility gradually by testing, learning, and iterating along the way. By working this way, we deliver results quick and accrue less cost for you.
