Business owners love/hate SEO

When it comes to SEO most business owners, know that they have to deal with SEO, but at the same time they are not happy about it. 

There are several reasons for this factor, but one of the main reasons business owners have with SEO is SEO companies. When it comes to SEO companies, most business owners are not that excited to deal with them.

This is natural SEO companies, and so-called SEO “experts” can leave a lot to be desired. 

Why is this? It has a lot to do with the way SEO companies usually work. If you have been in business for any length of time, you know what we are talking about. When you talk to SEO companies, they usually come at you the same way every time.

When an SEO company is trying to get your business, they usually come at you with a one, two punch.

  1. First comes the “selling phase” this is where they will do anything they can think of to get you as a customer and more importantly get you to sign a contract. 
  2. The next step is when they apply their “proven process” to get your website ranked, and they treat you and your business like every other site they have ever tried to get ranked.

Let’s take a look at each phase one by one and we you will see why you should be considering other options when it comes to your SEO needs. 

The SEO company and the “selling phase.”

While each SEO company you talk to is different, they all are trying to “close you” in the beginning. This is when they tell you how they can get your site to the top of Google and other search engines.  

They will tell you your site has all these issues, and they can help you fix them and then they will tell you that you need them and that you need to sign a contract.

Usually, the contract will look something like this

  1. You are locked in for 12 months
  2. You have to pay every month no matter what 
  3. They will do their best to get your site ranked, but they can’t guarantee that it will work.

If you think that this doesn’t sound like a very good deal, you are right!

Remember the contract isn’t for your benefit it’s for them! 

Once they get you to sign the contract, then you are no longer a potential client you are just client number 243. Then they start trying to apply their proven process and hope they can get you ranked.

Their SEO proven process. 

After the SEO company gets you to sign a contract, they will start applying the same process on your website that they use on every other website they have ever worked on. 

Why do they do this? 

Several reasons 

  1. The techniques they use do work, eventually, usually. After all, if they didn’t work, they wouldn’t use them!
  2. It’s a lot faster than figuring out what the problem with your website is. Each website has its issues that are preventing them from ranking, But taking the time to figure out what the issues with your site would be time-consuming.  
  3. Using the same thing over and over allows them to focus on what they are focused on — getting new clients!

By now you have most likely realized that hiring an SEO company is not the answer to your SEO problem. So the question you must ask is what the solution is?  

It’s time for you to learn SEO on your own.

I don’t have time to learn SEO right now.

  1. Spend money on SEO fees.
