Should a small business consider hiring SEO agencies or can they do it on their own? This is a very interesting question for a small business to consider. While it’s true that Search Engine Optimization (SEO) can seem complicated, with the right tools the basics can be mastered rather quickly. We, at Solo SEO, think we have the best of both worlds. We provide tools to help you understand your SEO. Our DIY tools allow you to manage and control your SEO, but help is never far away.
Our tools are intuitive and easy to understand. If you hire us as your SEO agency, you are doing your SEO on your own with OUR tools. It’s the best of both worlds. Of course, some of you would prefer hiring SEO agencies. There are some good reasons to hire an SEO agency for your small business SEO.
You get access to specialists.
It can take a while to become a master of SEO. Hiring SEO agencies can help you get access to experts. You will have them working for you to help you get the best SEO results.
Agencies have greater accountability.
When you hire an SEO agency, they have a reputation to uphold. Many operate on a retainer. They know that customer retention and satisfaction is critical to their survival. They’ll be willing to keep you happy so you’ll pay their monthly fee. An SEO agency will also do whatever it takes to earn you a high ROI (return on investment). If something goes wrong, you can trust that they’ll be on top of it immediately.
Hiring SEO Agencies is affordable.
Believe it or not, the amount of money you spend on having an in-house crew look over your SEO and the time you’d spend doing it all yourself, adds up and can sometimes be more expensive in opportunity cost than hiring an SEO agency in the first place. You should think of the expense as an investment in your business. In time, you should see a positive ROI, which means you’ll bring in more revenue than you’re spending on the effort itself.
Now, hiring SEO agencies can prove beneficial. When you consider hiring Solo SEO, you get tools you can use to make SEO easier for you to manage on your own. DIY SEO does have its own benefits.
When you manage your own SEO, you have greater control.
If you want to control the strategy and execution of your SEO campaign, it’s best to do it yourself. Most agencies know how to execute a plan, but they probably aren’t going to do it exactly the way you want to it done. They have their own way. If you want to control the process, then you should be in control of the process. Of course, you need to know what you’re doing. With Solo SEO’s tools, you will know what you’re doing even if your SEO experience is minimal.
You can more easily coordinate your SEO efforts across departments.
When you run a small business, you need things to work together seamlessly. If you hire an SEO agency, they will be working independently of the rest of your business. If you do the SEO in-house, you can coordinate your strategy with your sales, customer service and any other department that is affected by the strategy itself. That way, these departments can fall in line with your strategy more easily.
You will be able to communicate with immediately.
When you do your SEO on your own (or in-house), you can communicate your wishes immediately. When hiring an SEO agency, you have to wait to reach someone either by phone or email. Sure, it’s a lot quicker to communicate now than ever before, but nothing beats immediate contact which is what you have when you do SEO yourself. You can make changes in real-time. Sometimes, that can have a big impact on your bottom line.
