We help Chicago brands dominate first-page rankings

Northcutt is one of the leading SEO agencies in the US - and we're based right here in Lincoln Square.  From Lincoln Square to Wicker Park we're rooted deep in Chicago SEO. Through proven, fact-checked SEO systems we've helped hundreds of brands in Chicago rank higher in Google and grow their organic revenue. Now let's do it for you.

At Northcutt, our team of SEO experts strives to contribute to the Chicago Tech community with custom, holistic SEO strategies that dominate the first page of Google. Whether you need additional resources or a holistic SEO strategy, you'll have the best Chicago SEO company on your side. We're one of the few SEO agencies in Chicago that isn't in the business of presenting vanity metrics. You'll have a team working collaboratively with you to reach your KPIs. You'll have dashboards that keep us accountable and your goals on track.


You'll have a team of SEO experts concentrated around Chicago

Unlike most agencies in Chicago, Northcutt is a boutique, high-end talent agency with 15 collaborative specialists concentrated around Chicago. Each with 5 to 25 years of experience.

You'll have an agency that's well-studied in the Chicago landscape. This means that we maintain more relationships with Chicago journalists, as well as with influencers on social media.

It also means that we're well-acquainted with all the best places to make your brand visible while gaining authoritative backlinks; unique opportunities such as Built in Chicago and Crain's.

Northcutt is the only SEO agency that's openly fact-checked every ranking factor and designed a proprietary system from it.

Why use a Chicago SEO Agency like Northcutt?

You've heard the SEO horror stories, and unfortunately, they are too familiar. At Northcutt, not only will you have all of the resources that you need under one roof, you'll have unparalleled access to your campaign strategies and metrics.  Not to mention, we're one of the few SEO agencies that have built proven systems that scale across multiple industries.

Here's what you can expect:

Step 1: Discovery meeting

We'll set up a 30-minute consultation to chat more about what makes your business tick. Who are your competitors? What are your roadblocks? We take time to learn about the why behind your business.

Step 2: We share our findings and initial strategy.

After the discovery meeting, we take a deep-dive into your market to uncover your market's demand, opportunity, and positioning. ‍We use these findings to build out your initial strategy. You'll know what our plan is to help your dominate first-page ranking, and exactly what percentage of our efforts are going to go to each pillar of SEO (technical, content, link building).

Step 3: Kickoff and launch!

You'll meet your squad of SEO strategists that are all based in Chicago. Your squad is dedicated to your business and helping you hit your internal KPIs. We'll make sure we're all on the same page, answer any questions, and layout the plan for the months ahead. We'll meet weekly to create a feedback loop, and from there, we'll start achieving your business goals.
