As an Oakland Business owner, you know you need SEO.
In order to grow your business, you have no choice, you need to be on the top of search engines like Google and Bing. You can use paid services like Bing and Google Ads the problem once you stop spending money the calls will dry up too.
Two things are always true when it comes to local search engines.
- You have to get your website on page one
- SEO is the best way to end up on page one
When it comes to growing your business, organic traffic from search engines is the most effective and steady ways to grow your business.
It’s natural to be less than thrilled with SEO
If SEO is so important to your business why do so many business owners have a love/hate relationship? With SEO and SEO companies?
All too often business owners feel like they are in a no-win situation when it comes to their SEO needs.
- If they ignore their SEO, they will never get on page one, and their business will suffer.
- But they don’t want to pay large SEO fees every month either!
SEO companies are better than nothing, and they do help with your website and getting it ranked. But all too often business owners feel like their results are not worth the fees SEO companies charge.
One of the major annoyance factors when it comes to SEO companies is a two-step process they use to try to sell you.
- First, they come at you with the hard sell
- Then they try to use their proven process to get your website rank.
One of the most important things remember about SEO Companies is
Getting your website to rank is not their primary concern their main concern is getting new customers!
Let’s take a look at the SEO companies process from the beginning.
The SEO company hits you with their Hard Sell.
During the hard-sell phase Of an SEO companies pitch they will tell you anything that you want to hear. It will tell you things like
- They can get your website ranked the top of Google
- Your website has a lot of issues, and they can fix them
- You will be their top priority!
Well, they’re not entirely lying to you, they’re not telling the whole truth either.
During the hard sell SEO companies, they will really push to get you to sign a contract. The longer, the better for them. One of the things they will brag about is the proven process that they use.
Once you sign the contract, you will notice the one-on-one attention suddenly stops.
Most SEO companies contracts look a little like this
- They need you to sign a 12-month contract
- They can’t guarantee results
- But you have to pay every month no matter what.
If this doesn’t seem like a great deal for you, that’s because it’s not. Let’s take a look at why SEO companies Love this “proven process” so much
SEO companies love to talk about their Proven Process, here is why you shouldn’t believe them.
The truth is the “proven process” for the SEO companies use are just the same SEO tactics used again and again. So what is this a bad thing for you? Because every website is different, they all have different weaknesses that need to be fixed, and they all need different things to rank at the top of Google.
However, that requires a lot of work on the SEO companies part. It is much easier for them just to use the same SEO tactics over and over, tactics that usually work pretty well and then hope for the best.
Well, these tactics can get your website ranked, eventually, it takes a lot longer.
That is why SEO companies are not the answer you’re looking for when it comes to getting your website ranked.
It’s time for you to take control of your own SEO.
It’s time for you to do your own SEO
I’m sure you thought about how much easier it would be if you could do your own SEO before. I’m sure you’ve come up with any number of excuses why that wouldn’t be feasible. When someone is considering learning SEO from our training they usually bring up one of these reasons why they haven’t done it in the past.
- I’m not “tech Savvy” I can’t learn SEO
- I don’t have time to learn SEO
- I already work with a professional SEO company
None of these reasons should stop you from doing your own SEO, and we can explain why.
I’m not “Tech Savvy” I can’t learn SEO.
This doesn’t matter we’ve trained over 3000 students on how to do SEO, many of them weren’t tech savvy either. Yet they were all able to learn.
A lot of times when people say they don’t understand computers what they’re really saying is I don’t want to learn programming or coding.
We don’t blame you! We don’t want to learn it either. The way we teach SEO, you will never have to learn Coding or programming. If you were able to find this blog post on your own, you have enough skills to start learning SEO the way we teach it.
I Don’t have time to learn SEO.
This one is understandable you’re a business owner and that means you’re always responsible for what is going on with your business all the time. It is not a part-time job to own a business in Oakland!
Right now you might be thinking the last thing you want is more work and another project taking up time.
But have you thought about the advantages you will get by learning SEO?
- You’ll never have to worry about those SEO fees ever again
- You’ll never have to feel like you’re not sure why your website isn’t ranking.
- You’ll never have to wait to have someone else to improve the ranking of your website.
Something else that you should know, something that your SEO teams doesn’t want you finding out about.
What SEO companies aren’t telling you
Business owners are mistaken in thinking that SEO is a lot of work and as a full-time job in and of itself.
The truth is SEO for a local business website can take some time to rank, at first. However, once the website is up and ranked (usually taking just one to three months), it usually stays there.
So that means that if you hire and SEO company and you sign a 12-month contract the first three months, they’re working on getting your website ranked, after that, all they’re doing is collecting a check.
This is an excellent deal for Seo companies but a lousy deal for Business owners like yourself!
I Already work with a professional SEO Company
If you’re working with the great SEO company and they are getting your results, awesome, nothing is preventing you from continuing to work with them. However, there’re several advantages you will receive by taking this training when it comes to working with your SEO teams
- You can make your website get ranked even faster than normal – the only thing better than your SEO teams working on your website is you and your SEO teams working on your website. Together you can get results twice as fast!
- You can keep track of your SEO team’s efforts and make sure they do their job the right way – no one is saying your SEO teams are trying to cheat you, however, don’t you think you would feel better if you could keep track of things and make sure that they were doing everything they said they were doing?
- You now can speak SEO – that’ll make things go a whole lot smoother when it comes to you and your SEO teams working together if they know that you understand the concepts of SEO they will be up to explain them faster and move things along at a quicker pace.
You will no longer be limited to Oakland for your business!
As an Oakland based business owner more than likely, most of your business comes from the Oakland area. However, if you’re like most business owners that we work with you have A service area that extends beyond The city proper of Oakland. There’re several cities and towns in the area that could give your business customers as well.
The problem is Google views you as strictly an Oakland based business. This means that it won’t be quick to rank your website when people outside of Oakland search for your type of business.
While business owner see this as a problem, our students see this as an opportunity.
With our training, you could easily build and rank websites in each one of the surrounding cities and towns. Think of them as digital billboards, the more you build, the more business you’ll get! Like this
Using just one technique alone you could scale up your business bigger than you ever thought possible.
You can use your SEO skills for other businesses too.
How many business owners out there are in the exact same situation? They are great at the service they provide, but they don’t have enough customers.
You can help them, and make an income for yourself in the process! You can use the skills in this training to help their site get ranked. Or you could build your own lead gen site, and sell the leads to a business owner, how do you know that?
We’ve done it!
This is a limo site I built in 2014. I spent a month or so working on it, part-time to get it built and ranked.
Once the website was ranked, I rented the leads from the website out to a local Limo business. They were thrilled for the new business. They paid me 750 dollars a month. I haven’t touched this site since 2014, and I am still getting that same 750 dollars a month. That is four years of passive income!
Imagine what you could so with just a few of these sites earning you passive income!
