About Us

We're a content marketing agency, without the BS!

All online business owners dream of ranking their website and getting tonnes of high value traffic. 

But winning in the SERPs is not easy.

The competition is insane, Google is forever changing the rules and the top spots are often dominated by major companies with deep pockets.

SEO agencies and gurus may promise you #1 ranking positions but the truth is these are hard to come by. 

At Contentellect we avoid lofty and unrealistic promises, and instead focus on the foundational elements of winning websites: Quality Content & Powerful Links.

Get these two elements right and you'll setup your website for sustainable, long-term growth.

Get them wrong and it doesn't matter what SEO tactic you throw at your site, rankings will never materialise.

We like to call ourselves a content marketing agency, without the BS. This may sound flippant, but we genuinely believe that any agency that is not serious about high quality content and killer links, either doesn't get SEO or is indeed selling you BS.

We're business owners ourselves. Everything we do at Contentellect is battle-tested on our own websites (see our case studies), and proven to work.

If you're serious about building your online presence, let's chat!
