Being a good SEO client will ensure a smooth and effective relationship with your search engine marketing company. Not to bash anybody but there are some things that a client should understand when they get involved with either a freelancer or an SEO company.
You Are Not Our Only SEO Client
You have to understand that you are probably not the only client your company or person is handling. If you need to get ahold of someone try pushing scheduled calls. If you call over and over during the day and you don’t get someone on the phone it is ok, they might be out of the office or have other engagements that particular day. Even though, you are not the only SEO client, at my SEO company, I always make sure every client feels like they are the only client. Meaning, we respond to every client phone call, email, question within hours. But, I always recommend that don’t take advantage of this.
Don’t Be Hyper!
SEO is not a fast moving advertising medium. Things take time to move around in the search results so if you don’t see things happening right away it is ok. If you are just starting off and you plan on relying on your search engine optimization for business things might take a little while especially if you are in a competitive space. At the same time, I always make sure to give realistic expectations for improvements for our SEO clients.
We Are A Team
If you go with a reputable SEO firm you need to realize that they are on your side. Search engine optimization companies want to keep clients for the long haul and they do not get anything out of having clients leave early except short bursts of revenue which are not very stable for growing a business. Realize that we are here to help you grow your business and we are in no way against you. We are all one big team.
This is important because you have to be able to trust us. You have come to us for help and you realize that you need assistance to market your business. You can’t question and argue every little step that we take or propose because it will be a long uphill battle to get anything done.
When you hire an SEO firm or freelancer you are going to want to have a fun and smooth process. Take the time to understand what goes into search marketing and the various steps needed to really be successful before you bark up a storm.
