Finding the right, cost effective SEO agency will help with the unwieldy task of managing the search engine optimization for your company’s website.As a business owner, SEO and digital marketing is another piece in the marketing puzzle that helps with growing your business. While you focus on running your business, there isn’t enough time to learn and implement SEO strategies, or spend time pouring over analytics. Your time is valuable and finding a cost effective SEO agency is another way to invest in yourself and your business.
Huge, seemingly-insurmountable tasks and complex projects are overwhelming. Many business owners research SEO costs and the amount of time and skill involved in delivering effective SEO services then assume they don’t have the funds, the time, or the size to pursue it. As a result, they walk away from the one digital marketing strategy that, over time, could pay the highest dividends to their business.
SEO: In A Nutshell
Link building. Keyword research. Adding meta tags. SEO, like most internet marketing tools, is about finding balance between your site’s targeted, valuable content and search engine algorithms to increase content visibility. The best marketing strategies involving search engine optimization often employ white hat SEO tactics. These place a premium on optimizing your on page content, as opposed to relying on untrustworthy practices that simply attempt to outsmart search engine algorithms. The goal of any good SEO campaign is to increase a site’s web traffic, site authority,search engine rankings, and conversion rate. The best SEO techniques will also help you increase brand awareness and the online reputation of your company.
Cost Effective SEO Is Not Free SEO
Cost effective SEO does not mean SEO for the lowest price. Low priced or cheap SEO does not always translate to cost effectiveness. For example, spending $275 per month on SEO services with no results is not getting a deal – it’s wasting your marketing budget. Looking for cost effectiveness where your investment actually provides results should be a determining factor. An SEO company promising fast, incredible, unbelievable results like immediate first page search rankings from a quick, small payment rarely generates the advertised results.
Still curious about our cost-effective SEO strategy? Here’s how we do it.
Build A Rock-Solid SEO Foundation.
Before we jump into anything, we sit down with you. We don’t talk over you with complicated marketing jargon, we listen to understand your business, values, goals, and current content strategy. We set up Google Analytics to understand on-site engagement and on-page optimization. When running a small business, your time is likely spent doing things other than taking digital marketing and SEO training courses, researching long tail keywords, and examining analytics and search engine results. You’re a business owner who needs an expert digital marketer so that your years of valuable expertise can be channeled elsewhere in your company.
Though doing-it-yourself may seem like a cost effective method, that Pinterest guide probably isn’t going to rank your website. Google’s algorithm updates more often than many can keep up with. By hiring a professional digital agency, you can focus on day-to-day operations, big picture business goals, and not worrying about optimizing your website to rank. A rock-solid base starts with cleaning up local SEO listings, ensuring your business is accurately represented on Google Maps, and evaluating your Google My Business listing, improving website speed and setting up Google Analytics Goals correctly. Once we’ve built a solid foundation, we’re ready to tackle the tough stuff.
Set Small Goals And Build On Them.
Once SEO foundations are in place, we determine the best digital marketing strategy for your particular industry and brand. We usually start with search engine optimization, however sometimes the right solution may be Google Ads (previously Google Adwords), or a strategic social media campaign. When we begin with SEO, we set up strong, highly-optimized web pages with solid, valuable content. We focus on keywords to deliver targeted website traffic and visitors already looking for what you have to offer.
Going after flashy keywords with the highest search volumes is a rookie mistake. If your site gets a thousand hits per month with a high bounce rate and no purchases, you’re not getting cost effective SEO, you're throwing away money. Get YOU Found optimizes for highly targeted and local long tail keywords that steadily increase your organic traffic and web presence. As your site grows, we grow with you by building up to bigger and stronger keywords.
Pull Out All The Traffic Stops.
Once your site is steadily ranking, we pull out the big guns such as PPC, social media marketing, PR, and targeted content marketing. These are tools that build your site and brand even further. Since search engines measure social signals in their ranking algorithms, a social media audience can drive traffic back to your site AND boost your overall SEO rankings. We grow your online presence as you grow your physical business. A pay-per-click Google Ads campaign helps generate leads by increasing product, service, and brand visibility online. The more we take advantage of additional digital platforms, the higher your business ranks, allowing you to re-invest resources into even more optimization over time.
Maximize Content Writing And Crosslinks
As you may already know, content is king. Many SEO companies use blogs as their number one revenue-generating marketing channel because targeted copywriting can effectively draw new visitors to your site and keep them there longer. The more valuable, engaging, and powerful content is added to your site, the higher it will rank, and the more your overall campaign will benefit. Though online checklists exist promising to produce ranking content, the content that does rank must be continuously optimized over time to drive conversions. Creating content that doesn’t convert is counterproductive. We ensure your content is valuable, engaging, and attractive to search engines.
Cost effective SEO that works
Reasonable, incremental successes have a much more powerful effect than one big, dynamite SEO launch. SEO is long-term, ongoing, and constant. The best digital marketing agencies understand this. This is why we pursue data driven incremental success as a strategy to build long-term success. When searching for cost effective SEO, it’s easy to simply look for the lowest price. Finding a monthly retainer budget to start out with is a smarter strategy. Small businesses with reasonable timelines should budget $625 to $900 per month for effective digital marketing. If you are a medium sized company then your budget would be in the $1,500 to $3,500 range. Large company SEO budgets start in the $5,000 range and go up from there. Your monthly budget should be large enough to actually produce results. A sustainable retainer delivering high-quality leads at a profit is the ultimate goal.
