“Agency Jet has been great to work with. We have worked with companies in the past to improve our SEO and our website and none have had the efficiency and skill of Agency Jet.”

In November 2020, All Brides Beautiful signed on with Agency Jet after relatively unsuccessful stints with other SEO agencies. As a service oriented business, Agency Jet needed to help stop a downtrend in traffic during the height of the pandemic. Within a handful of months their Ohio traffic not only stopped downtrending but actually grew by 68%. They were also retaining 7 out of 10 visitors to the site in Ohio, displaying that users were highly engaged.

Answers to Questions About

Hiring An SEO Company

Does SEO really work?

If you want to be found by new potential customers, then one of the best ways to do so is through SEO, which means ranking in Google for your key product and service keywords. Why is it so powerful? Ask yourself, what would you do if you needed to find a product or a service? You go to Google to search for something. And so do your prospects. According to a study by HubSpot, 57% of B2B marketers say that SEO drives more leads for their companies than any other advertising technique. When you consider that organic leads from search engines convert at 14.6 percent and traditional marketing leads only turn into sales at 1.7 percent, the value is clear.

How long does SEO take to work for my website?

Small business search engine optimi­zation in Columbus, Ohio doesn't immediately produce top rankings in Google. If you're doing ethical SEO then you're taking measures to market your business in a way that search engines approve of and you need to put continuous effort into your business every month to be successful. Most campaigns tend to experience growth trends within a couple of months, with most of these seeing leads and sales increases after six to eight months of SEO efforts.

If you work on it for a few months (or even better, years) you should see returns of two, five, ten or more times on your initial investment. As long as you're using white hat SEO techniques, even if you turn them off, you'll probably see a few positive results for a few more months at least. Disabling it isn't recommended though because SEO can have long term benefits at an extremely affordable price.

Is the SEO industry dying out?

Not in the slightest. The old way of thinking about SEO (emphasizing the number of links rather than the quality of those links) is no longer relevant. Back then, if you wanted to get good rankings in Google, you just needed to produce more content and more links than the other guy. That's black hat SEO now. White hat SEO has been around for a long time, and it will continue to be around for a long time yet. Black hat SEO techniques are no longer effective and could be harmful to websites. There are over 37,000 SEO companies in America alone, so the industry isn't dying but growing daily.

What does SEO look like in 2022 and beyond?

For years, you’ve needed solid technical SEO, high-quality content creation, and a great user experience on your website for your site to rank. As we move into the future, these trends are likely to become even more relevant than today. Google is impossible to fool with poor techniques and ironically, the best way to rank highly is by keeping the end-user in mind at all times! Your website must be quick, unique, explain why your products and services are useful or helpful to your users, and be easy for them to use. It must contain high quality content, be easy to navigate, link to high authority websites, and be well-respected.

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

Finding an SEO company isn't easy but finding one that meets your needs and provides full transparency and education on how their process works is essential to success in growing your business. Most agencies can get results for you, but few will take the extra step to treat you like a human being. Hiring an SEO expert or service provider versus truly partnering with one are vastly different experiences.

What does local SEO cost to get started?

There are no specific rules governing the cost of SEO services. If you're looking for a reputable agency in Columbus, Ohio to perform small business SEO services, you could get quotes ranging from hundreds of dollars per month to thousands of dollars per month. If you're a small business, you can usually find rock solid services for between $1,500 and $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?

We've talked with a lot of clients in the past who've shared their experiences of their former agencies. Here are some red flags they've shared:

  • They didn't know who owned the work. Small business SEO services should never be contract-dependent. You should own the work. If the agency owns it and you decide to leave, they'll delete what they did and you're back at square one.
  • They promised a #1 ranking in Google. It's a simple question: Is this SEO agency Google themselves? Nope. That means they can be confident about rankings but if they promise #1, they're promising something they can't truly control.
  • They were unreachable. You're going to be investing a couple thousand dollars per month. You can't afford to be left in the dark by the agency. Make sure you're partnering up with someone who's easily reachable and helpful.
  • They were coy with what they showed. The only way you can truly feel confident in the agency is with full transparency. If the agency doesn't share stuff with you because it's "too technical for you to understand" they won't feel obligated to share the unsavory bits either.

Why hire a local SEO company versus doing it myself?

It's hard to get good results from DIY SEO if you don't know what you're doing. An SEO agency should help you eliminate the types of headaches you would get from trying to do it yourself. Regardless of whether Google makes any changes or your business evolves over time, SEO companies are flexible enough to adapt and help you move forward. They're not just useful for helping you get better results; they're also useful for saving you tons of time! If you don't know anything about SEO, DIY SEO can be an expensive risk.

Why hire an SEO company versus a marketing employee?

One of the best methods for promoting your business is by using SEO. Plus, you can hire an expert team for less money than it would cost to employ one person. Hiring a marketing person means that they are doing everything themselves, that you have to pay them at least $50K per year, plus give them health insurance, vacation time, and sick days. An excellent SEO agency is likely to cost less than $35K per annum without any additional costs that come with employing an employee. And they guarantee their results. If they don't improve your visibility online, you should fire them and find a new agency.
