Bringing in professionals is a good move if you want an independent audit of the work done by your previous SEO company, or interns. Having external authority bypasses office politics and sets a direction for change or improvement. Our cunsulting assignments often involve scrutinizing and reporting on the work of a web developer before a new project goes live. We have prevented many disasters- from incorrectly managed URL changes to platform migrations of complex e-commerce sites and link profile cleanups.
SEO Consultants Work on the Front Line
Professionals who implement search strategies daily, are up with the latest algorithm feedback from the engines and have that highly sought after commodity called experience to draw upon. This provides a narrow, accurate focus to the assignment. Search engine optimisation hasn’t been around for ever- so finding someone with many years’ experience, recruiting and keeping them- might be beyond what your organisation can comfortable handle. SEO experts who have worked for a range of clients and solved problems in organisations similar to yours, will be ready to roll their sleeves up and get to work.
Leveraging the experience of a seasoned SEO person gets you the best help “on demand”.
A Fresh Way of Seeing What You Have Grown Accustomed To
Engaging external or outsourced SEO personnel will shed new light on your customer acquisition strategies. New opportunities- and even inherent, overlooked assets and business streams will often sprout early on in the partnership between SEO consultants and business owners.
It’s probably more profitable for you to work on what you do best within your organisation. If you make mistakes or an intern implements the wrong strategies in search engine optimisation, recoveries are slow, and expensive in terms of lost opportunity. We hear of many scenarios where websites have been dropped from search engine listings because of questionable tactics an intern read about on the internet.
We often find points or opportunities which have been completely overlooked by the previous SEO provider- and business owner! Fresh eyes and a unique analytical approach to how we see things as SEO consultants, will make a positive difference to your bottom line.
Buy Small Amounts of the Best Talent
Hiring an expert still gives you the best possible help occasionally- instead of compromising money on an ongoing salary just to pay someone without the skills or experience. The external SEO person can set the direction for your staff or marketing department. This can save you from costly errors when your own in-house people don’t have the talent to bring to the table.
Engaging an SEO consultant at project level, on a casual or needs basis, is the best way to leverage expertise earned over many years at the front line of search, and save your company money as well, especially if you can do some of the work yourself.
