If you already have a quality website but you are lacking the amount of qualified visitors that you are expecting, it may be time to consider looking for a specialists that can help your business. Sadly, many entrepreneurs and small business owners don’t realize that once your website is built, potential clients simply won’t know it exists. Not until it is properly search engine optimized that is.
A question that many entrepreneurs and small business owners ask is “How do I get people to find my website on search engines like Google, Bing, and Yahoo?” The answer to this question can be very complex and this is why most business owners invest in search engine optimization (SEO) agencies or specialists to increase their website search engine visibility that will generate more sales leads. If your website is suffering from low search rankings online and you would rather not have to learn about an entire new profession in order to boost those rankings, here are four steps to finding the best SEO consultant for your specific business needs:
Determine What You Want:
Websites can be at varying search visibility stages and will have different SEO needs. For example, your website might only need to be ranked better on different search engines vs. needing everything from pay-per-click advertising, ongoing SEO maintenance, content creation SEM (Search Engine Marketing), Social Media Marketing and more. You need to determine what you want out of an SEO campaign, and making sure you are keeping your expectations realistic is important.
Once you have determined which method will work best for your business, consult with multiple SEO experts to compare which methods would be best suited for your specific business needs. A good search engine optimization campaign is a process that can take from four months to a year to achieve your goals. A good SEO campaign first needs to implement website improvements and then will have a cumulative effect before seeing potential benefits. A good SEO expert should show interest in your business and what you want to achieve with his or her help. Have the expectation they are working as an extension of your current in-house team – someone who is readily available to answer your exploratory questions and provide regular status updates.
Check References and Past Track Record:
It is very important when researching different SEO specialists, that you become familiar with their references and their past and current clients. Past performances can accurately predict the future and what the SEO expert can do for your business. If they have had considerable successes helping similar industries to yours, then they will have no trouble helping you. A good SEO expert should not only solve long-term problems, but also be accessible to answer any questions you might have.
Ask About History:
Knowing about each SEO specialists story can help you select the right expert for you business. Ask them about how they became a Google partner or what their proudest achievement is. Even ask about their best or worst clients and how they handled difficult clients. It is almost like selecting a candidate with a job interview. You must find out what their core values and beliefs are instead of just hiring them based on the amount of Facebook likes they have or their impressive looking resume.
