Do You Know What Your SEO Company is Doing?
For real, though, do you ever wonder if the money you are spending is going directly to working on your project? Or is it going straight to the pockets of the owner?
There are a couple considerations to take when hiring an SEO. The first, and most important factor, is TRUST.
If you trust them 100%, then you know that they’ll work hard for you. It’s as simple as that.
In this industry, it’s hard to know who is actually an expert and who fired up their computer one day and decided to brand themselves a “guru”.
For example, we’ve done SEO since 2013, so you can be confident that we know the industry and tactics inside and out.
You need to get on the phone with your SEO guy before you ever decide to pay them a dime. Are they fluent in SEO and general marketing? Do they exude genuine confidence that they can get you results?
The easiest way to establish a trust factor with your SEO guy/company is to find someone you already know that does it. You might be surprised at how many people there are in this industry.
Try using social media for recommendations, but do your research.
Just because you know them doesn’t mean they do quality work.
For your first SEO experience, use a company that doesn’t do contracts. This way you can learn what it is they are doing and make sure you approve.

Don’t let them talk you into signing any long-term agreements. They might even say it’s in your best interest, but usually it’s only in their best interest.
The other thing you need to do is make sure they have gotten great results for other clients. You may even want to call those clients who have left reviews and ask them about the processes. When looking into a local SEO specialist, try researching their previous case studies for an example of their past work.

I started Morningdove Marketing for one purpose- to get filthy rich and buy an island. Just kidding. I've worked with lots of different companies, and it's my passion to see them grow as a result of something I've done. And hey, if I can afford an island one day, that wouldn't be too bad either 😉
