Long review alert! SEO, what the heck is it? This was exactly my question when someone first suggested that I needed to consider SEO to my site. So I searched Google and of course found dozens of agency’s in my market all with equally impressive claims, but after an hour of reading sites I picked up the phone and called a few. This is where my eyes were opened. One of the company’s I called tried talking me into an expensive audit which would allow them to propose how much this so called SEO would cost me. I asked the sales rep. You mean to tell me that I get to pay you to give me a quote? I think you know what his answer was, but mine was a resounding, no thank you! Then I found a company which was happy to give me a quote and explain a little about what they would do. Yet I still had many more questions than answers… so I kept looking. Finally, I found SEO Ranker Agency and frankly I am so happy that I did.From their site was an option to request a free analysis of my site. This was available completely without any contact with the company, which I preferred since I had no idea what a site analysis was and really didn’t want to speak to someone without some understanding of what they were referring to. After about 15 minutes I was emailed a 14 page report with more information than I could possibly digest, but what really blew me away is that the report included actionable things I could do on my own if I had the knowledge and experience.Just 24 hours after receiving the report, I was sent a pleasant email followed by a call from Mark. Once I got on the phone with Mark I knew this company was different. He was incredibly professional and confident. But it was the video Mark sent me as a follow up to my SEO analysis that closed the deal. Mark said that he has discovered that when he does a website review in the office using the various tools at his disposal, he’s always able to talk with much more specificity than in an office or coffee shop. This is because he can demonstrate traffic patterns and keyword rankings, content issues, etc using real tools. So the idea with the video is for him to narrate live what work needs to be done on the site and how that will translate to increased revenue. The translation to real revenue is what the other company’s had failed to demonstrate. Mark showed me how for every dollar I paid him, I could expect as much as six dollars back in new business and this was enough for me to commit a significant part of my marketing budget to SEO and internet marketing. And I can report that the early results are extremely promising and they back up everything he claimed (and more).
