You recognize the need of your online presence and get a decent website made. You hire people to handle your social media which is the fancy part of your digital marketing. Probably not entirely but you understand what it is, and what it does for your brand.
But when it comes to terms like SEO lead generation, search engine optimization etc., you find it too technical and leave it entirely to some random people who promise you big and deliver what you can’t measure, because you probably do not know how to.
Search Engine Optimization is a very important part of your digital presence. In fact your whole digital presence depends on it. So how can you so casually leave it on some SEO agency in India without bothering to know what’s happening to it?
Here are 4 tips that you need to keep in mind before hiring SEO specialists for your brand:
Learn about SEO: For you to face SEO specialists you should at least have enough knowledge that when they present their proposals, you are not lost in the maze of those jargons. It’s important for you not to get intimidated by the SEO company that’s presenting in front of you, or they will easily eat you up. So learn the basic terms and what is generally involved in search engine optimization (not the technical part, just the general one).
Figure out your target: The next step after knowing what all SEO has to offer is what you want from it. Is it a one time audit that you are looking for? Is it online reputation management that concerns you? Do you want SEO lead generation? Are you looking for website reach? Do you need PPC management? Figure out that what is it that you are looking for and then you can negotiate accordingly with the SEO company.
Do window shopping first: Just like shopping for clothes, you need to take a look at the SEO specialists and their offers before finalizing on one. It’s important that you go through various offers before deciding the one you like, unless of course the first one impresses you so much that you feel absolutely sure of it. If that’s not the case, take an idea from a few agencies, see what matches with your budget and go ahead with the agency that best meets your needs. There is no SEO agency in India that will say no to you for a free consultancy in India, as you would be a prospective and there is n dearth of SEO specialists around.
Choose your best representative: The budget constraint shouldn’t be the sole factor of your choice, or the most important factor. Choose an agency that represents you the best. You need some one that shares the same passion and ideologies that of your brand, or at least projects them nicely.
For a good online presence, you need good SEO. And for a good SEO you need to keep these points in mind.
