3 Important Things To Know Before Hiring An SEO Consultant
3 Important Things To Know Before Hiring An SEO Consultant
1. Certification Passer
The SEO consultant must be well-versed about the ins and outs of SEO. He should have an in-depth understanding of how the search engine works. How could he diagnose a site? If what he knows is only creating backlinks.
The only way to test if he’s qualified is when he passed an SEO Certification exam. This is like a doctor licensure exam.
Would listen to the advice of the non-licensed doctor to undergo surgery? Of course not, it works the same way with SEO Consultant.
You don’t want to take the high risk of getting penalized by Google forever because of wrong advice of an SEO consultant.
I remember it took me for almost three months of serious study to pass the SEO Certification exam. You know, I felt the pressure to pass the exam because my previous employer paid it fully. Thank God for his help, and I able to pass it for my first attempt. Also, I earned other supporting certifications and recognitions, as shown below:
2. Backed-up By Solid Experience
Experience can’t be faked you must earn this for years of consistent hard works. It’s just like driving. You can’t drive by just attending orientation or reading manual book. I’m sure your grandma will be freaking nervous when you attempt to drive her for the first time at the speed of 130kph.
Can you afford too to entrust the fate of your business to an inexperienced SEO Consultant? Of course not!, it’s too risky to get penalized by Google and leave your site nowhere to be found by your customers.
You can easily spot if the one you are speaking with is just a self-claimed SEO consultant. How? Simply ask him proof of good results. Don’t be tempted to hire him because he’s good in answering your SEO related questions. Everyone can read, but not everyone can deliver the results you want!
You should be looking for real results. See below for a sample of significant results of SEO Consultant Armil.
3. Marketing Mind
Search engine optimization is not only about top rankings. Even if you’re site holds #1 position but no good conversion at all, it’s useless. Yes, top positions matter, but it’s not only the piece in the puzzle. People won’t jump immediately and click whoever on #1. The reality is their eyes are wandering around. They are like tiger scanning quickly the search results, looking for something admirable to their eyes.. See below as proof:
Do you know? Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is part of Search Engine Marketing (SEM). From the word “Marketing” per se, SEO involves marketing too. The ultimate goal is to get high rankings with a high conversion rate.
Search engine result page is just like a big bulletin board of advertisements. You need to be creative in your marketing to attract the attention of your prospective customers.
In the example below for the query “plumber Halifax”, it’s obvious the #2 listing will get more clicks than #1 listing. The searcher using this search query has an immediate need of looking for plumbing service. He might have a problem with bursting faucet. For sure, he has no time to check one by one for the best 10 plumbing services as seen in #1 ranked page.
It’s clear here. Marketing expertise is essential for SEO to convert well. The fact it’s not easy to find an SEO expert or consultant with a good marketing background. Most of the experts and consultants I know are technically inclined who hate sales and marketing.
Unlike, SEO Consultant Armil, he has vast experience in sales and marketing. He got involve early in marketing during college days by actively doing network marketing. In fact, he’s able to get around 50 recruits under him in just 30 days. Also, he has a formal marketing experience when he was working as a Marketing Manager in an IT company.
