“In my experience, the signal-to-noise ratio amongst individuals in the SEO industry is particularly bad. Supposed 'experts' miss the forest for the trees and focus on short-term gains that are either not scalable or sustainable. In stark contrast, Brent has provided a foundation on which to build SEO success. He provides high-quality work that cuts through the noise. And, most importantly, the results are undeniably excellent. Highly recommended.”
Brent is creative, enregetic, and a great resource.
--Bob Barba, Business Development at United Airlines

He loves working through problems with and does so in a way that is easy to understand.”
“Brent Payne is a search marketing legend and owns the best Chicago SEO company: Loud SEO. He represents quality, trust, and the rare ability to consistently execute at the highest level in the local SEO and digital marketing service space over the past few decades. I've seen good & great in terms of SEO experts but Brent is in the top 1% of search engine experts in the United States.”
"Brent has a masterful understanding of SEO, and is skillfully able to adapt to different situations and verticals to provide meaningful and lasting results. He is thorough, straightforward, loves to solve challenges, and explains solutions in an easily understandable way. Throughout the engagement with Loud, Brent taught us SEO basics, strategies, and all the way to advanced applications that we are still utilizing today and continues to drive results."
"SEO is like going on a diet. Most people know what you need to do but few have the willpower to make it happen. Brent is our personal trainer for SEO. Prior to Brent, we would chase whatever marketing fad was popular at the time. Brent has been the antidote. He knows what works and what doesn't. He always has a plan to move us forward. We always thought we were that one secret trick away from ranking at the top, but the truth is that secret trick doesn't exist. Brent has taught us to methodologically attack SEO... working on proven successes over and over again. And methodically, our traffic has continued to grow. We gave Brent a ridiculous goal this year and he managed to help us crush our expectations. We've worked with other SEO firms in the past and have always been disappointed. When you work with Brent you are getting a world-class practitioner of SEO and not a low-level account manager at a large firm."
