We live in a world of communication, the internet, phone calls are all great for communication, but nothing beats a good old fashioned face to face meeting. Not all communication is verbal, so to truly understand your needs, a meeting is helpful if not necessary.
At the meeting, the agency can look through your Google Analytics account to see what the current situation is. You can discuss and get to know how well the agency knows their craft and get a feel for their level of experience in SEO.
Does the agency know your market sector? Do they understand your products/services? Do they know your competitors?
Many agencies will run an SEO audit for free through MOZ or a similar tool, but this is not sufficient we feel.
We do feel that sector experience is helpful.
SEO is two fold, onsite SEO and offsite.
New content creation is always advised to show search engines that your website is active.
These are things you can discuss at a meeting, when the agency is fully focused on you, not juggling you with other clients during a phone call.
A big part of search engine optimisation recently is social media marketing.
Having a presence on social media sites like Twitter, Facebook and Instagram is something search engines factor in to your organic rankings.
Many SEO companies in Birmingham will know this and help to put together an SEO strategy for your business. This strategy will be unique, and needs to be unique, which is why sector experience is important.
Would you feel comfortably using an SEO company in New York or Spain? Paying them hundreds or thousands of pounds a month to do SEO for you? Unlikely, we feel using someone local gives you more confidence that they can be trusted.
With this in mind, all SEO agencies set their own rates, based on their overheads, staff costs and profit margins. Freelancers tend to charge less each month than established agencies, as their running costs are less.
With marketing and SEO, you do not get what you pay for. The most expensive SEO company in London does not make them the best. But choosing an SEO company based on price alone is unwise.
As discussed above, we feel a number of factors come in to play.
Choosing a local agency is wise, one that has experience in your industry and a track record of success.
Comparing SEO prices from a few relevant agencies is good, to ensure you are not overpaying.
