There is nothing like making an investment for your business that provides the type of ROI that makes continuing to budget for that investment a no brainer. When it comes to investing in digital marketing services, specifically SEO, that principal still applies. As the number of consumers and businesses looking online for the products, and services they want continues to grow… there will continue to be a steady increase of new business opportunities online. With that, most companies that are investing in and thinking about outsourcing SEO services to a vendor are looking for one that can offer guaranteed results.
Is it fair to expect guaranteed results? Yes! Most of the time…
As long as there are companies and websites dominating any particular keyword theme in the SERPs, it will provide the evidence needed that there is a guaranteed SEO strategy out there that works. One of the beautiful things about organic search engine rankings is that ANYONE with the expertise, strategy, and implementation can compete for the #1 spot in any given industry.
With that being the case, all that is needed is to make available the resources that are necessary to reach that goal; although some businesses are not in a position to do so. As a result, they might decide to outsource to a vendor providing “cheap” SEO services and tactics, hoping that their investment will be up to par with that of a competitor that is spending $5,000 – $10,000+ EACH MONTH to keep their dominant position. In a case like that, can results be guaranteed? Does such an expectation seem reasonable? Absolutely not!
On the other hand, if the budget and resources you make available to the outsourcing SEO vendor you’re working with allows the vendor to implement the strategy and tactics necessary to compete with your search engine competitors… you can expect guaranteed results; period!
At the end of the day, to get guaranteed results for SEO… you have to work with and invest in the best vendor(s):
This fact should seem obvious, but based on the questions we get in this regard… that’s far from the current reality. We’re not suggesting that every business needs to have a budget of $5,000 – $10,000+ per month for SEO services, but they need to understand that you get what you pay for.
Take for example the servicing of your vehicle. Depending on the make and model, you might pay anywhere from $30 – $300 for an oil change, because that is the going rate for that type of service. Suppose, however… you want your vehicle to drive as fast as another car that has a larger engine with more horsepower. Should you expect to work with the same type of budget that you would for an oil change or should you expect to pay $3,000 – $6,000 to drastically increase the horsepower of your vehicle? You might even need to buy a new car entirely.
When it comes to outsourcing SEO services to an agency, things are very similar. With all of that being considered, what are some of the most common search engine optimization services that a company can invest in to produce guaranteed results?
1) Content Creation & Marketing
– Providing useful content for your target audience is one of the best ways to improve your search engine rankings. Truthfully, many companies struggle with this, yet experienced digital marketing companies can look at your buyer personas and target audience to find out which content is most useful to them. It might be in the form of informative articles, videos about different products or services, or it could be in the social media space.
Whatever the case, it’s important to remember that one of the most important and guaranteed ways to successfully outsource this aspect of your marketing is to find a vendor that can recommend and provide useful content.
2) Improving The User Experience
– Not only is this an important ranking factor for search engines like Google, but most internet users these days are impatient with a website that doesn’t correctly load on their device, or doesn’t load at all due to slow page loading times. This is mainly due to the fact that no matter what keyword phrase is used, there will always be more than just your website to find what it is that the searcher is looking for.
However, if you make sure your website loads properly and adds value to the searcher… not only will it be great for branding, but visitors to your website will continue to come back. Additionally, most search engines heavily monitor how their searchers are interacting with your website. Are searchers clicking an organic listing to your website and staying or the site or are they clicking and returning to the search result pages and clicking on other sites instead.
All of these are things that can be addressed when working with an outside SEO company.
3) Link Building
– Aside from content, this is the other hugely important aspect of having a guaranteed and successful SEO campaign. For many digital marketers and business owners, they feel that getting relevant and powerful backlinks is nearly impossible, yet that’s not the case. An expert SEO will know exactly which links to get, how to get them, when to get them, and why to get them.
Is it difficult for them to do so? Absolutely not!
Does it take quite a bit of effort? Definitely!
Is it worth the time and investment? Always!
If you don’t believe that, again… look at some of the most successful and best organically ranked website in ANY industry, and get a sense of the number of keywords they rank for at the top of the search engines; then take a look at their backlink profile. Doing so will confirm that what was stated above about link building is absolutely true 100% of the time.
