“Firestarter Search Engine Optimization has taken the mantra ‘a jack of all trades’’ and flipped it on its head. They understand that if you want an expert in SEO, you go to a company that specializes in SEO. For this reason, it is no surprise they have achieved UpCity’s Excellence Award.”

This recognition has been driven in large part by our 5-star review rating on UpCity. Here are a few of our favorite pieces of feedback we’ve received from our incredible customers:

“Working with Skyler and Firestarter SEO is just a fun experience. Being able to sit down and view your business from the consumer’s perspective is not only educational, but very valuable to your bottom line. Seeing what is going on behind the scenes of Google is a huge advantage when trying to gain leverage in your favor. I recommend Firestarter SEO to seasoned and new start-up businesses. Thank you Firestarter SEO!”

Eric Avery, Firestarter Search Engine Optimization Customer

“Kyle Carney and his team at Firestarter SEO were very engaging in the overall learning component and asked me and my team to a free open meeting to see first hand the results that companies can receive using SEO. Their pricing is very reasonable, customer service above and beyond, and the overall package they put together to deliver top of the Google search results are unmatched! Call Firestarter to learn more if you are wanting to improve your overall website presence!”
