Being a business manager or owner in the Cleveland area, you know how important it is to have good SEO. In this article, we will discuss why it is critical for you to take all SEO efforts for your business. We will also show you how this course can change your business future.
As a Cleveland based business, you need great SEO
Cleveland is not a small town, with a population of three hundred thousand people you know that you will have a lot of competition with other businesses in the area.
You need every advantage you can get to stay ahead of the curb. With getting new customers the biggest advantage you can have is organic traffic from ranking on top of Google.
With Google, two things are true.
- You need to be on page one
- You need SEO to get on page one!
Organic traffic you will get from being on page one is the safest and most totally cost-effective way to generate business.
Other paid methods like Facebook or Google ads can be fast and effective, but they are expensive and getting more expensive every day.
So if SEO is so great why do many business owners hate talking about it?
Why SEO can leave business owners feeling unsatisfied.
Often owners feel like they are caught between a rock and a hard place.
- They can not ignore SEO their website won’t end up on page one
- Hiring some SEO company can feel like a “shakedown.”
One of the many reasons hiring an SEO crew can feel like the least bad decision in a no win is the fact that the SEO companies business methods leave a lot to be desired.
When becoming a client of an SEO crew the process looks something like this.
- First they come at you with the “hard sell” during this part of the process, the SEO company will tell you your website has all these issues, that they can fix your problem and that they can get you ranked on top of all Google searches, (they won’t guarantee that in writing of course) but they will surely hit you all with the hype! During this phase, they are not trying to get to know you, or your business they are just trying to book you as a client
- Next comes the “Proven Process” once they get you to sign the contract you’ll notice all the special attention will disappear. They will just put your website through the same process they always use and hope for the best.
Let’s take a look at these two steps one by one.
SEO companies give you with the Hard Sell
The hard sell is what we call the process where an SEO crew does everything they can think of to try and get you to sign on the dotted line.
There is a good reason for this. An SEO companies contract usually looks like this.
- You have to sign up for 12 months (we have seen 24-month contracts recently!)
- No matter what results they get you have to pay monthly.
- They can’t guarantee results of course, but they will use their “proven process” to try to get results you want.
If you think this contract is not a very good deal for you, your right! However it is a very good deal for them.
You might have noticed they use the term “proven process” often, this is not an accident.
The simple truth is…
SEO companies never vary how they try to rank a site
SEO companies are kind of “one trick ponies” with SEO they all do the very same thing over and over, they do this for a couple of reasons.
- It usually works pretty good.
- They don’t have to spend time developing a customized plan for each website
- It lets them focus on their main business goal, finding, and signing up new SEO clients.
So what is the main downside for you and this “proven process?” The simple truth is no two sites are exactly the same. Some have on page SEO issues others need links and other might need something else.
But that takes time to figure out, and they are just better off signing you to a long-term contract and hope for results.
It’s time to take over the SEO
Now you most likely realize it’s time for you to take over your SEO.
This can’t have come as a shock to you, you may have even thought about it in the past, maybe you had some excuses not to do it. Here are a few of these potential excuses.
- I can’t learn SEO, I have no time
- I can’t learn SEO, I’m not computer Savvy
- I don’t need to study SEO because I am using an SEO crew already
I can’t learn SEO, I have no time.
This is a very common comment we here, and we understand being a business owner is time-consuming! There are always things that need to be dealt with, and you have to deal with them. However there are several advantages, time-wise you will get once you take our training and learn SEO.
- You’ll be able to scale any business…Fast!
- You won’t ever have to waste time worrying about your site not ranking, you can just fix it!
- You will never have to pay SEO fees again…Time is money after all!
You maybe you are thinking this sounds good, but even if I knew SEO, I wouldn’t have the time to do SEO.
Let me let you in on a little secret. One your SEO company isn’t in a rush to tell you…Your SEO company isn’t spending a lot of time on your website.
Here is what SEO companies don’t want you to know
With SEO business owners often think that their SEO company is working on their site every day for hours a day, this is just not true!
The simple reality is once your site gets ranked it has a tenancy to stay there. Once the work is done, that is all you must do. The rest is just collecting a check. So if you hired an SEO crew on a long term locked in contract, you’re paying only for 2 or 3 months work at most!, and then all they have to do is collect a check!
I can’t learn SEO, I’m not Computer Savvy.
Don’t worry you don’t have to be. When people say “I’m not computer savvy” what they are saying is I don’t want to learn programming…Who would? The way we teach our students SEO, you don’t need those skills. If you discovered this blog post, you are “computer savvy” enough to learn.
I don’t need to study SEO because I am using an SEO crew already.
If you’ve got an SEO crew, you like that is great! But just because you have some SEO crew doesn’t mean you couldn’t benefit from the training. There are several benefits you’ll gain from SEO training
- You’ll have the ability to rank your website faster – working together you and your SEO crew can rank your site faster then if they were doing it alone.
- You can keep track and verify their work – no one is implying the SEO company isn’t doing the job, but the simple truth is shouldn’t you be keeping watch on them? Now you can.
- You and your SEO company will be able to communicate a whole lot better – When your SEO crew tells you something you’ll know what they mean! This is not a small thing!
Having an SEO crew can have it’ benefits, but here are two bonuses this training offers that an SEO crew can’t touch!
Bonus #1 You won’t be limited at the Cleveland area with your SEO efforts
Being a business manager/owner in the Cleveland area, I am sure most of your business comes from Cleveland, but that doesn’t mean you should be limited at Cleveland. If you have a service area, I am sure there are other cities and towns that are in that service area.
They could provide you with a lot of your business. However, Google doesn’t look at that way. To them, you are a Cleveland business only that means they won’t rank your website outside of Cleveland.
Now while many business owners see this as a challenge our students see this as a huge undiscovered opportunity!
With our training, building sites in each one of these cities and towns in your service are and have them send you customers would be easy! Like “Digital Billboards” using them could grow your business.
With a little effort, your service area could look like this.
Bonus #2 You could do the SEO for any company! And create a income stream doing it!
You are not the only business owner who needs customers, after taking our training you could solve that problem for them and they would pay you, well for it. How do I know? I have been getting paid for exactly that service since 2014!
When I first learned SEO by taking this training I built this website. It is a limo site, the location doesn’t even matter! The point is I built the site and put in the part time work I needed to do to get it ranked, after the calls started coming in I found a local company that provides Limousines to “Partner” with and they have be paying me 0ver $700 a month every month since! You can copy my results for yourself.
SEO success can be yours
We can’t guarantee your success, why not? Because you have to do the work! What we can promise you is that over 3000 students have taken this training and everyone that put in the work has gotten results, We are talking results like this.
