Dear Mr Finkelstein

Re: SEO Specialist position

I am writing to apply for the position of SEO Specialist at Search For Solutions, as advertised recently on

As an experienced SEO professional with a passion for everything related to search, keywords and analytics, I would love the opportunity to work with a progressive company like SFS. I currently work as an SEO consultant for Sticky Web Marketing, where I have really enjoyed honing my skills in developing effective SEO campaigns based on thorough research and analysis, and creative problem-solving. I now feel ready for the next challenge in my career.

My strengths lie in my ability to find solutions and think outside the box, my strong communication skills, my ability to adhere to strict deadlines and juggle multiple projects and priorities, and my attention to detail and accuracy when gathering data, conducting analysis and preparing reports. I work well with others and enjoy a collaborative team environment.

When it comes to SEO, I employ a multi-pronged approach that involves methods such as keyword analysis, metadata, the creation of unique and relevant content, link building, competitor analysis and social media. Whatever the methods, you can be assured they are accompanied by thorough analysis and data to continually monitor and optimise their effectiveness.

These strategies have enabled me to develop effective SEO campaigns for a number of major clients, including a leading clothing retailer which enjoyed huge boosts in organic traffic, search engine ranking and revenue as a result.

I am a strong communicator with fantastic client service and account management skills. Confident giving regular presentations in boardroom settings, I am comfortable conveying what can be quite technical information to clients in a simple and informative manner.

Importantly, I keep myself up-to-date with the fast-moving SEO landscape, particularly technological and search engine trends, changing algorithms and ranking factors. I understand the importance of always staying one step ahead in this dynamic and ever-changing field.

You will find my resume attached and I look forward to discussing the position with you further.

Yours sincerely,
