My name is Jacob Kettner and I’m the founder of First Rank Search Engine Marketing, a Winnipeg SEO Company. Our mission is to help clients generate leads from their websites. We specialize in both traffic generation and conversion optimization; however in this video I’m going to stick to talking to you about SEO.
So what is SEO, how does it work, and is it right for your business? SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization or Search Engine Optimizer.
This is a very powerful form of advertising, because people don’t realize that it’s advertising. Most people don’t like advertisements, in fact the 11 sponsored ad positions on a Google results page only get 15% of clicks while the first organic listing receives between 30 and 50% of the clicks based on the industry. When your website shows up in organic listings people feel like they found you themselves.
In early 2014 Mobile browsing exceeded Desktop internet usage for the first time in history. For certain search terms Google displays a pack of results that includes a map and either 3 or 7 local business listings. On mobile browsers the results in this pack get a click to call button directly on the search results page. By not being in the local listings pack you’re missing out on over 50% of potential customers that are actively searching for your business.
If you decide that SEO is something you’re interested in the next step is choosing the right person or agency to do it. The truth is there are a lot of people out there that call themselves SEO experts, and only a fraction of them can achieve consistent results. The worst part is that the majority of Winnipeg SEO firms are using outdated SEO methods that can potentially get your site blacklisted by Google. I’m going to give you a list of 5 guidelines to follow when choosing an SEO Company.
First, stay away from generic or incredibly low pricing. No two businesses are alike and every business has a unique set of financial goals they’d like to achieve. Would you actually believe that someone could earn your business an extra 20,000 or million dollars a month for 5 per week? That’s less than a part time worker would make at minimum wage. Flat rate pricing is also often a sign that the SEO is being outsourced which brings me to point number two:
Make sure that the person or agency you are hiring does their own SEO. There are lots of established marketing agencies in Winnipeg that want to add SEO to their product offering so they outsource it to a white label SEO firm. This removes you from the person that is actually working on your site, makes it more difficult to align your goals, and doesn’t give you the opportunity to vet the person who’s actually going to be working for you. Furthermore, you’re paying a middle man who’s likely charging you at least twice as much as the actual value of the services being provided.
Third, ask for proof. Make sure that the Winnipeg SEO you are hiring is able to achieve consistent results! A good Winnipeg SEO agency should be able to show you rankings that they’ve achieved in the past.
Fourth, make sure that the person that will be performing the work is accessible. There’s nothing worse than being forced to leave messages with receptionists and then never having your call returned. SEO is a rapidly changing environment and it’s important that you are regularly communicating with the person working for you.
Fifth, Transparency. There are no secrets in SEO. If someone tells you that their methods for ranking you are secret then chances are they’re doing something against Google’s terms of service and risking the safety of your site. Legitimate SEO firms in Winnipeg will always be willing to discuss their strategies with you.
