How to Hire an SEO Agency
If you’re looking to hire an SEO agency to implement a search engine optimization plan for your website, the first thing to know is you should get a couple quotes from different companies. Just like you would before hiring any service company, do your homework. Check out their website and prepare a list of questions for them.
Also, if you get a call stating something like “your web listing is wrong or your web site is not being found because there are problems with your website. Contact us today to fix because tomorrow is too late!”, they are probably not going to really care whether your business succeeds. Some scammers have now even setup robo-calls to do this to make hundreds of calls an hour. They do not know who you are, they don’t care who you are, they have never looked at your site, they just want your money. These are the people that give web marketing a bad name!
The experts at Google produced a video on just this topic, which we featured in one of our own blogs.
Each SEO agency is different, but they should all speak the same language of SEO and be knowledgeable about it and be able to communicate with you effectively. Beware of an SEO company that guarantees you will be at the top of the SERPs within two weeks or something like that. The search engine owns the listings and they are the only ones that could possibly guarantee #1 listings. All good SEO companies know that SEO takes some time to show results, and they should be up front with you about that.
The Best SEO Company for You
The best SEO company for you is one that was prompt in getting back to you; answered your questions fully, so that you could understand; asked you a lot of questions about your business and your goals; was friendly and informative and not high pressure; had clear pricing; if not local to you, has a process to meet in person, via Skype or some other platform; and of course, charges a monthly fee that you can afford.
