Your company is looking to scale and you see the potential of Search Engine Optimization to help get you to the next level, but just don’t know where to start, so you’re running searches in Google and exploring various SEO companies in your area. Since most of our team was born and raised in Los Angeles and we have a variety of clients here, we thought it would be helpful to drop a few tips using LA as an example.
One thing to point out from the beginning is that local SEO companies aren’t always best. There are SEO firms with intimate experience/knowledge in particular areas whether it be specific locations like LA or verticals (food, law, technology, etc.) and what’s most important when hiring an SEO company is ensuring they understand the big picture. Based on the goals you’ve outlined, and the strategy provided, can they execute?
When searching for an SEO company in Los Angeles, Miami, San Francisco or anywhere else in the world the biggest thing to look for is a track record. Essentially, don’t tell me what you’re going to do, show me what you’ve done. The proof is in the pudding.
The best way to choose an SEO company is to dig into their true experience, past results and don’t be afraid to ask the tough questions – in the end your business is on the line.
