How much does organic SEO actually cost in Bristol?
So, you’ve had your website built, yet one of the main ways that you want to advertise your company is to use SEO.
This means your currently really busy shopping around all of various Bristol based SEO agencies as you need to gain an idea of costs.
Yet when the quotes start appearing in your inbox, well, you have a rather confused look starting to appear on your face.
The look of confusion is because the SEO quotes differ massively, that’s to say where one agency is offering to do the work for just a few hundred a month, another wants thousands per month- so why the large difference?
Well, regardless of price, we think that you must compare agencies on quality.
This is why the rather well-regarded SEO firms, such as Pack Digital Bristol, well we are never going to be the cheapest, because we are known for quality.
It’s quality SEO work which Google’s algorithm rewards, that’s because its “Googlebot” is constantly super busy looking for new SEO work that’s been completed.
If the quality of the work is high, that’s to say you’ve followed Google’s WebMaster Guidelines, then this work that can improve a company’s seo.
However, with that said, so many businesses all over Bristol, and in Bath, make the large mistake of picking a low-quality seo company, and as you can expect, sometimes the company will incur what’s called a Google Penalty.
So, we would say this, don’t pick out a marketing company on cost, no, pick one on the quality of the work.
Why quality is so important?
If you are currently debating which SEO company to go with, we would urge you to think about investing in quality.
Special offers, low prices or simply a sales representative given the hard sell, shouldn’t sway you.
You have to think long and hard about which company you go with, as some companies can be absolutely brilliant at what they do in Bristol, and help bring about winning results.
On the other hand, you have those rather terrible agencies, which set up, and then implement low quality work, which can actually bring about a penalty which is really bad thing when it comes to SEO.
So yes, you guessed correctly, the wrong agency, your businesses rankings could drop like a lead balloon.
However, if you pick a rather fantastic company like ours, that is easy to work with offers a really competitive prices, and implements top quality work, then the world is your oyster.
However, with that said, what you will often find is that good quality work doesn’t come cheap.
So, one of the things you have to think about is, if an agency is offering super low prices, then you do have to question what you are getting for your money
Don’t ever cut corners
One of our top tips is this, don’t ever cut any corners, the algorithms are way too clever for this.
Some businesses think that they can implement cheap SEO, that they can try to use low quality SEO methods, however all that will happen is that the business would get a penalty.
You also have to be really realistic about what you can get for your marketing budget, some businesses think they can take on huge companies on a shoe string budget, but in reality is not really possible we think.
So, you have to be realistic, as this some businesses which are large, it will have paid a considerable amounts to agencies to improve the SEO over what is likely a prolonged period of time, therefore a business thinking they can set up, and out do their SEO on a rather limited budget, often is unrealistic and sometimes this means that they hire the wrong agency.
We say they hire the wrong company, to do their marketing work, because there will always be companies that say things are possible when they are not.
However, the more honest companies in Bristol, will say look with that marketing budget, you are unlikely to come anywhere near the competition.
This therefore is a much more honest approach the company saying that they will have a go, when knowing full well that they can’t take on the competition for that marketing budget
You acknowledge that you will have competitors who may have invested for a very long period of time
So this point is worth reiterating, that is when your investing in organic SEO, for your company here in Bristol, you have to bear in mind that you will often be up against other Bristol companies or companies from around the world that may have been investing in for a long period of time.
Now you might be wondering well why does that leave the matter?
With a simple answer to that is, if you want your business in Bristol to rank higher, then you have to beat those companies SEO.
So, what we mean by this is, let’s say there’s you run a business in Bristol selling bikes, if you want your businesses SEO to improve so that it climbs the ranks, you have to have a better standard of the businesses SEO above you to overtake it.
So, what you have to bear in mind is, let’s say another company that sells bikes in Bristol, has been investing for say the last 10 years in organic SEO, obviously their standard of SEO work is be high, so often there is a lot of work to overtake such companies.
Why you might want to pick a local SEO agency
whichever the company that you do hire, you might find yes it’s cheaper to pick a company based elsewhere in the UK, but you might want to think about picking an agency which is local to your business.
Now with Bristol we are fortunate enough to have a lot of SEO companies, and you might want to pick a more local business, simply because is often a lot of discussion that is needed along the way of improving the organic SEO.
If you’re one the likes to have face-to-face meetings with your marketing company, you might want to pick a local business.
What exactly does white hat SEO mean
You need to ensure that you invest in high-quality work.
Good quality SEO takes a huge amount of time
Goods quality SEO does take a vast amount of time, so therefore if you are paying a really low some monthly, you do have to start thinking about what you are getting for your money.
Equally with that said, it doesn’t guarantee you good quality work if you pay a fortune, the actual work that your buying needs to be top quality.
