Most SEO Consultants act in the same way as an ordinary business consultant. Their main role is to provide expertise and knowledge supplying a group of tasks to support companies in achieving good search engine positioning.
Generally free advice can be given as a method of engagement, the client should not feel that their time has been wasted by the consultation period with too much technical jargon or detail on information about the delivery process which will bore the client.
With SEO consultants most of the techniques discussed on this site or within this blog (now and in the future) and generally fulfill the requirements of the cleint. The key part of delivey is managing client expectation.
An SEO consultant will offer you a breakdown of the service at the highest level, what is more important however, is in a way that makes it relevent to you business afterall the SEO consultant has the clients brand in his hands.
To illustrate some of things to look for here is a list of key points:
• Be aware of sales staff that have are not familiar of the delivery cycle for SEO to achieve a good quality SEO campaign the consultant knows it is one of balance however, it is generally common sense.
• Look for companies that have achieved page one of Google - if that was what was wanted, especially if the keyword chosen was competitive . SEO Services Now - [sales banter mode off] have achieved that and are willing to provide the contact and references to back this up - when vetting the SEO partner ask when and what timeframe they took to make it happen .
• Ask for free information, SEO consultants that are happy to do this have no fear that what they are saying is true but it wont be the whole requirement.
• Do not be scared to ask anything as a reputable SEO consultant should be able to answer without fuss. Ask them how they do it.
• Check and research the competition – compare pricing, some SEO companies charge 0,000’s per month.
• Aim for contracts that are less than a year or that are performance or service related also include termination for non-performance, look to include non-competitive clauses too.
• Primarily check out the SEO consultant throughly, don’t forget though this is a lng term strategy – this is not a one off agreement and you should steer clear of any SEO consultant that suggests otherwise.
Above all this is a results based activity any creditable SEO consultant should bring the expected results, the difficulty is finding that person in the first instance.
