Is SEO Really Worth the Effort?

The benefits of successful implementation are extensive and include increased quality user traffic, improved visibility and credibility, more effective return on investment over traditional marketing mediums such as print advertising or direct mail. Although SEO is not difficult, it can be tedious, seemingly daunting, and requires diligence and patience because instant gratification is not going to happen, SEO is long term and calculated.

Designer, Hardware & SEO Specialist

Here at Brainworks Studio, one of my responsibilities is to ensure all hardware is functioning as it should. If a workstation malfunctions, the impact on workflow can jeopardize time sensitive projects. As a designer, I assist with various print and digital projects, modify and update websites.

In my spare time, I enjoy taking spontaneous road trips, attending punk rock music shows, and practicing my airbrush technique. Bio-Dome is one of my favorite movies ever and I like to cook – because fast food is gross.
