Hiring an SEO agency to help with your companies digital marketing can be a daunting task. As a small business you may not understand SEO and how it works. Unfortunately many people in this position get drawn in by fantastic sounding promises that are too good to be true.
Investing in the marketing of your website has the potential to make or break your business so it’s wise to take your time over appointing an SEO agency. Here’s some questions you can ask to weed out the cowboys from the rock-star internet marketing agencies;
You should also ask how long they’ve worked for these clients on their search engine optimisation and what results they’ve achieved in that time.
Any SEO agency that is ethical and professional will have nothing to hide and therefore be happy to invite you to their offices to discuss your proposal in more detail. Would you really want to pay someone hundreds or even thousands of pounds to do your digital marketing work if they weren’t willing to meet face to face?
You should also be given an indication of any changes to your search engine rankings for the keyword/phrases the agency is targeting for your business.
SEO is a level playing field and Google doesn’t prioritise the work of any SEO agency over another.
