Stakeholders Management


Project managers of digital marketing campaigns can have a difficult time explaining the nuances of search engine optimisation (SEO) to various stakeholders, both internally and externally.

Stakeholder management involves communicating with interested parties at all levels including C-level executives, shareholders and customers. High-level parties are interested in facts and figures rather than technicalities – but everyone wants to know “what are the benefits.”

Successfully advocating SEO to stakeholders at all levels not only requires a rundown of the benefits but detailed reports of monthly projections, KPIs, tracking, actionable strategies and concise communication they can understand.

To help with stakeholder management, I produce in-depth reports and precise strategies that explains the finer details. Using data analytics, I can identify existing problems that create a barrier. I then use my extensive knowledge and experience of SEO to describe the solution clearly.

I understand that SEO professionals not only need to convince C-suite executive to invest in SEO but also translate analytical data into actionable strategies to your marketing team.

It is important to demonstrate how SEO impacts each stage of the customer journey. Data analysis can be read like a foreign language but knowing how to translate data into effective marketing strategies gives your team a clear understand of what to do and why.

Using data-driven analysis, I can help you develop strategic sales funnels that steer customers in the right direction at the right time. I show you how to increase search visibility with a content strategy and attract organic traffic that translates into high-value leads.

Having performed revenue-driven SEO for B2B, B2C and eCommerce enterprises since 2006, I have a wealth of experience of managing the expectations of high-level shareholders and implementing SEO strategies that present a clear vision to first-line employees.

In my experience, stakeholder management is only successful when you are able to communicate data analytics in a clear and precise manner. With a clear vision, they are ready to buy into your project – and where necessary provide the budget to help you achieve your goals.


In-depth data analysis highlights problem areas that enable you to implement effective solutions. Using advanced analytics tools and years of experience, I provide you with a precise problem-solution roadmap.


A clear and concise SEO strategy lists recommendations, KPIs, targets projected results and actionable solutions. When stakeholders can see the bigger picture they are more prepared to offer support.


It is important that stakeholders understand the power and potential of search engines. Data-driven analytics reveal how improving your online visibility can help grow your business.


Stakeholders want to know how SEO campaigns will expand the company’s online presence. By explaining the digital landscape backed-up by data it is clear to see profitable opportunities.


In-depth competitor analysis brings to light how your brand compares to your competitors. I leverage this data so stakeholders can see the broader challenge and make informed decisions.


The ultimate goal of stakeholder management is to illustrate the potential for profit. From the outset I produce a report that outlines a solution and reveals how SEO can increase profits.


Most C-suite executives recognise digital marketing is the future of your company. However, very few understand the technicalities of SEO and unless you explain the potential in a way they understand, it could affect their decision making and pile pressure on SEO project managers.

To manage expectations of stakeholders, leave technical details of how search engines work to a minimum. What CEO’s want to know is why SEO works and how you will use your expertise to ensure a return on investment.

SEO can be a hard sell if your CEO demands a page #1 rank on Google in two months. To overcome potential friction, I create a report that demonstrates KPI and projected rates of return each month.

Detailed reports paint a clear picture. This gives stakeholders a clear framework which enables them to allocate a proportionate monthly spend together with appropriate resources without over-stretching the company budget or the workforce.

The reports I produce outline the potential of investing in SEO and demonstrates a realistic picture of what they can expect from bottom-line returns. With in-depth analysis, I can chart a trajectory for your SEO efforts and project a potential ROI.



It is important that stakeholders have a clear vision of what to expect before embarking on an SEO campaign. With my knowledge and experience of the SEO landscape, I understand how to earn the trust of stakeholders at all levels.


Google tweaks its algorithm regularly and every so often rolls out a major update. With years of experience in the SEO industry, I have a solid understanding of search engine business models which enables me to anticipate potential changes in algorithm updates.


Issues with your SEO campaign can appear without warning. SEO managers should make stakeholders aware of potential problems from the outset and outline a contingency plan for each foreseeable issue in order to mitigate anxiety should something go wrong.


To ensure stakeholders are kept up-to-date with the progress of your SEO campaign, I deliver a report at the end of each month. Moreover, it is important to acknowledge any downturns when they happen so that decision-makers can take appropriate action.


Today’s digital landscape raises unique challenges that can only be resolved with a custom-designed solution. Stakeholders want assurances that an air-tight SEO strategy will enable them to reach their business goals.

Having worked in the SEO industry since 2006, I have not only seen the evolution of search engines, but also the adaptation and transition of numerous business models.

During that time I have worked for several high-profile corporations in B2B, B2C and eCommerce sectors. The industries I have worked in include logistics, eCommerce, aeronautics, insurance, energy, and pharmaceutical to name a few.

After managing international SEO campaigns, I have developed a revenue-focused growth strategy designed to help businesses increase online visibility, raise brand awareness, drive leads and deliver a return on investment.

My diligence and dedication to perform in-depth research together with my specialist knowledge of the digital landscape mean I deliver goal-focused insights designed to provide clarity to stakeholders from the boardroom to the front line.

Not only that, but I have specialist tools, systems and processes that enable me to compose bespoke SEO strategies that resolve unique problems. I do not believe in a one-size-fits-all solution and always compose a creative data-driven strategy that will leverage your overall digital performance.

In addition, I provide a personalised service which gives you a higher quality of customer care large SEO agencies cannot match. Due to my flexibility, experience and availability, it makes sense to give me the reins to stakeholder management.

Sometimes it’s the relationship you build with your SEO project manager that can make all the difference. My friendly and approachable nature makes it easy for me to connect with people and I am confident I will be able to work frictionlessly with your marketing team.

Not only that, but I understand how to convince high-level decision-makers with data-driven reports and can attend your business premises to provide SEO training workshops to your marketing team.



Experienced SEO analyst with stakeholder management experience. I have worked with high-end clients including Fincantieri while working with past agencies, Priority Pass, Columbus Direct, Higeco Energy and can communicate with people at all levels.


I deliver bespoke SEO solution that responds to your business needs. Dedicated and professional, I make myself available and conscientiously ensure problems are remedied.


Having worked for numerous top-tier enterprises since the early days of SEO, I have a deep knowledge of digital strategies and am confident of resolving complex challenges without over-stretching your budget.


With data-driven SEO solutions, I can help your team overcome challenges and provide the inspiration to craft creative marketing strategies and focused campaigns that reaches your target audience.


Each month I produce detailed progress reports that show growth trajectories. With this information, stakeholders have valid information to measure their investment and make informed decisions with confidence.
