R&D = A Great Start

Regardless of how small the purchase, we've all worked with service providers who ram their philosophy down their customers' throats instead of getting to know them and their goals. Our R&D starts off with learning what you want to accomplish, then we form a digital marketing strategy around those goals to make you successful for the long term.

We're not about a good first impression. We're about a good impression period. How do we do that? We tell you the truth every single day—good or bad. It's our duty to inform you of campaign activities, results and any potential unforeseen costs—AHEAD OF TIME. No surprises here.

Answers to Questions About

Hiring An SEO Company

Does SEO really work?

If you're looking to get seen by new potential customers, one of the most effective ways of doing that is through SEO (search engine optimization). This means ranking in Google for your key products and services. Why is it so effective? Ask yourself, what do you do when you need to find a product or service? You go to Google. Your prospects do the same thing and according to a study by HubSpot, 57% of B2B marketers say that SEO generates more leads for their company than any other advertising technique. When you consider that search engine leads (like Google) convert at 14.6% and traditional marketing leads only convert at 1.7%, the value is clear.

How long does SEO take to work for my website?

Local business search engine optimi­zation in Columbus, Ohio doesn't immediately produce top search results in Google. If you're doing ethical SEO then you're taking steps to market your business in ways that search engines approve of. You need to put in constant effort every month to be successful. Most campaigns tend to see growth trends within a couple months, with most of them seeing lead and sales increases within six to eight months of their SEO efforts.

If you work on it for several months (or even better years), you should see returns of 2, 5, 10 or more times on your original investment. Because white hat SEO works so well, even if you turn off the SEO, you'll probably see some positive results for a few months at least. It's not recommended to disable it though because SEO can have long-term benefits at an extremely affordable cost.

Is the SEO industry dying out?

Absolutely not. The old way of looking at SEO (emphasizing quantity over quality) is now obsolete. A long time ago, if you wanted to rank well in Google, you just had to produce more content. White hat SEO has existed for a long time, but it will continue to exist for a long time yet. Black hat SEO techniques aren’t effective anymore and could be harmful to your site. There are over 37,000 SEO companies in America alone! The industry definitely isn't dead, but actually growing every day.

What does SEO look like in 2022 and beyond?

For years, you've needed solid technical SEO, quality content creation, and a good user experience on your website to rank. As we move into 2022, 2023, and beyond, these trends are likely to become even more relevant than they are today. Google is impossible to trick with poor techniques and ironically the best way to rank high is by keeping the end user in mind at all times. Your website must be fast, unique, explain why its products and service are useful or helpful to users, and be easy to navigate. It must contain high-quality content, be easy to use, link to high authority sites, and be well-reputed.

How do you make sure you choose a good SEO company?

Finding an SEO company is not easy but finding one that fits exactly what you need and provides full transparency and educational material on how their process works from start to finish is essential to success in building your business. Most agencies can get you results but few will take the time to treat you like a real person. Partnering with an SEO expert and hiring an SEO service provider are two different things.

What does local SEO cost to get started?

There are no specific regulations regarding costs in the SEO industry. When looking for a reputable agency to conduct your local SEO in Columbus, OH you could get quotes of several hundred dollars per month or even quotes exceeding $10K per month. If you're a smaller business, you can usually get reputable services for between $1,500 to $5,000 per mo­nth. We primarily serve small businesses. If you'd like to talk costs, let us know.

What are red flags I should look for when talking to an SEO company?

There are lots of agencies out there. How do you know if someone is trustworthy or not? Here are some common red flags we've seen in the past:

  • They don't tell you who owns the work they create for you. If they own it they can turn it off at any time. If you own the information, ask how that information is communicated to you.
  • They tell you you're going to rank number one for a particular keyword. Listen, we're not Google. No agency is. We're not trying to change Google's rules; we're just following them like everybody else. That means no agency is capable of guaranteeing a specific ranking in Google.
  • You can't get hold of them. If they're already hard to contact, choose another agency. You'll be spending several thousand dollars per month, so don't spend it on people who you can't reach with that kind of budget.
  • They won't tell you everything. This stuff can be complicated and technical. It's not expected that an agency gets everything approved by you but they should at least show you everything. If they're not showing you something, it might be unsavory.

Why hire a local SEO company versus doing it myself?

It's hard to know what you're doing if you're not an expert and lacking expertise when doing DIY SEO can be costly. An SEO agency should be there to help you eliminate the type of headaches you'd get from doing it yourself. Regardless of whether Google changes or your business evolves, SEO companies are flexible. Their true value lies not only in helping you get better results for your business but also in saving you tons of time. If you don't have any SEO experience, DIY SEO can be a massive risk.

Why hire an SEO company versus a marketing employee?

One of the best ways to promote your business is through SEO. You can hire an expert team for less than it costs to employ one person. Hiring a marketing employee means they are doing it all on their own, that you have to hire them for at least $50K annually as well as offer medical benefits, vacation, and sick days. A good SEO agency is likely to be cheaper than $35K per year without any additional costs that you get from having an employee. Plus they guarantee their results. If they don't help you improve your visibility online, then fire them and find a better agency.
