If you’re currently shopping around for SEO quotes at this very moment in time, well, you’re probably now aware that SEO quotes can differ massively.
That’s to say some quotes may well be really cheap, so much so your eyebrows will be raised in suspicion of why they are so cheap. Then you’ll probably thinking, well come-on, what am I really going to get for that price- I don’t want rubbish quality work!
And then there’s the other sort of agencies that are right at the other end of the spectrum, these agencies may only want to deal with big businesses, so they price their services accordingly. And these quotes may well be shocking because of how expensive they are!
So sometimes the various quotes you get back can leave many business owners scratching their heads and thinking well who do I choose?
Well, one of the things that separates us from so many other digital marketing agencies is that we explain things clearly. So, without further ado here’s how we calculate our seo quotes and why we are such a popular option for businesses to choose within Cardiff.
Here’s what we consider when calculating how much to quote to our customers:
Level of competition
What so many seo companies do not make abundantly clear is this, how much work is needed to get your website onto the first page of Google is dependant on how strong your competitors are.
For example, there may well be some agencies that will grab your money, yet not really tell how realistic it is to get your website onto the first page of Google.
So, for example, let’s say your business makes handmade furniture, and you’re paying an SEO company say £300.00 per month to improve your businesses SEO.
Well, what the seo agency may not make clear is that there may well be other furniture businesses that are investing so heavily into seo that your businesses investment may well be considered an absolute drop in the ocean in comparison.
Now, this may sound rather defeatist of us! But at the same time seo agencies have a duty we think to be frank and honest with their clients, that’s about what’s realistic on a set budget, and what’s not.
So, in a nutshell, the cost of our SEO services is dependent on how strong your competitors are, and how much work is needed to beat them.
As you imagine, if a group of competitors have all been investing say £1000.00 + into seo for say the last seven years solid, well, as you would expect, its going to take a lot of time and money for an seo agency to beat this standard of seo.
So, our quotes are therefore realistic as to how much work is needed. We don’t therefore price our services just to grab business from any company.
Why are some quotes much cheaper than yours?
There will be many companies that are much cheaper than us, and the main reason for this is that there are so many companies that offer “grey hat” or “black hat” seo.
This is simply rubbish seo, which aims to trick the algorithms into thinking that your website has stronger SEO than it really has.
The pitfalls of such an approach is the business will most likely incur a penalty because that business has invested in rubbish quality seo. This means the business could see its website removed from Google and the other search engines.
So, we simply don’t compete with the seo agencies that offer these seo methods and really cheap quotes.
Why do I have to pay per month?
Organic seo is a constant process, most businesses will always face competition that will always be striving to reach the first page of Google also, so a business has to defend or improve where it is ranked constantly.
If your business was to stop investing, well its likely that another business will sooner or later overtake your business.
What work will you offer for your fee?
White hat seo both onsite and offsite.
Can’t I just pay a one-off fee?
Our agency doesn’t offer a one off hit at seo, the reason for this is that it is possible to over optimise a website, that’s if an influx of SEO work is added to a website all at once.
So how long do your contracts last?
A lot of marketing agencies ask for a 12-month seo contracts to be signed, we only ask for 3 months.
Always, we only every use the best seo methods.
