Creating websites optimized for search. leads. results.

Content strategy and SEO don’t have to be a mystery.

With us you’re not just a number – you get the personal service of a freelancer, but the quality and professionalism of a big marketing firm.

👋 We’re Big Cedar, a boutique agency making the complicated, simple.

It's good to have principles.

We’re professional problem solvers who take pride in finding the best solutions and strategies for the budget (not for the agency).

Our Principles & Beliefs:

  • what you focus on grows
  • the long view wins
  • go where your audience is
  • be generous, be kind
  • honesty, integrity & accountability

We support your website at any step in its lifecycle by delivering solutions with a positive return on investment.

Whether you’re just starting a Shopify store or looking to improve your established WordPress site’s search rankings, you can hand us the keys knowing it’ll be taken care of.

On the other hand if you’re more the DIY type, we’ll also educate and empower you to take control yourself.

Clients choose us because of our clear, transparent process and technical expertise.

Clients stay with us because we get results.

We strongly believe in shared successes and always go the extra mile (or kilometre, we’re Canadian 🇨🇦).

Featured Work

Dr. Mieri Han

Owner, Rellingen Dental Practice

Fresh after signing papers to take over a dental practice, Mieri approached us to create the brand and guide the transition from the old website. We transferred the domain over while maintaining search rankings and designed a logo and website highlighting their investments in new technology, getting their practice off to a running start.

Marco's Travel Deals

Paid Newsletter Landing Page

With the return to travel near, travel veteran Marco Fiallo leaned on his experience running Ecuador’s most popular hostel and walking tour to create a new way to find the best deals on tours. Built with WordPress Elementor and connected to a CRM and email marketing automation software, we created a strong logo and wrote the copy to communicate a clear message. .

QuickBooks Reporting Services

In collaboration with accounting firm PurposeCPA, we built a new website and wrote strategic copy with a focus on SEO. Despite the competitive niche, GoodReports ranks on the first page for our  target keywords. Google “QuickBooks custom reporting Vancouver” and see.

Munish Sharma

Actor, Dancer, Playwright

This multi-talented creative was keen to showcase his work to a larger audience. We helped Munish design a site using an off-the-shelf WordPress theme to keep costs down, and gave him the tools to maintain the site on his own, so he can update his growing fan base on his latest shows.

Nice Words

from some smart folks (thank you!)

testimonial1-120@2x data-lazy-srcset=
“I was impressed with Victor’s professionalism and service. I was on a tight deadline and was concerned about the time difference, but that was put to rest as he was always accessible and communicative. Victor developed a clear action plan and strategy for our takeover of another dental practice. His suggested SEO tactics that I’d not considered allowed us to exceed our existing search ranking for local dentists in my area. I’d work with him again in a moment.”

“I wasn’t proud of my Squarespace site, my previous designer didn’t design it to how I imagined. I contact Victor and he fixed my issues, and pointed out other improvements as well as helping me switch domains. His knowledge of SEO is impressive and his practical tips gave me confidence to take my coaching business to the next level. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a reliable, knowledgable web designer who gets things done!”

“I genuinely love working with Victor. We really appreciated his guidance in creating our Shopify store and patience in explaining the technical parts. His recommendations to setup the store and on which integrations to use helped us launch our online store with momentum. He has a lot of knowledge and listened to our needs – highly recommended!”

Marketing often is seen as a bad word. But marketing done well is about understanding and connecting with your customer’s world views and desires.

Web marketing and SEO can be overwhelming, but my job is to make sure it’s not by explaining the steps to move you forward in clear, plain English.

If this resonates, reach out!”
