In todays day and age, having a store front and using standard means of advertising isn’t enough. People aren’t searching for businesses and products like they used to. If I were to ask you to find the closest Target, where would you look first? I’m guessing that 95% of you will have said either your phone, a table, or a computer. Another 70-80% of those searches will have been made on Google. The remains 20-30% will have been on, Bing, MSN, Yahoo, or other random search engines.
Knowing the above, there are two common sense points to take away. One, is that if you have a business, you should have an online presence so people can find you. The second, is that you will want to focus your efforts to get found on Google as that is where the majority of people search. This is just common sense right?
So how do you get found on Google? This question leads to a lot of complications, but let’s keep it fairly simple for right now. There are a few options as follows:
- You can take the next 4+ years and study about search engine optimization and ranking online.
- You can Hire a local SEO company to do it for you.
- You can get frustrated, do nothing, and let your customers go to your competition.
These are simple and logical options. Which one makes the most sense? Doesn’t take much thinking does it. It doesn’t have to be complicated at all, although, a lot of people will do their best to go out and do things on their own, only to be met with udder disappointment and more costs than if they were to just hire an SEO company to begin with. I know, because I have seen it and done it.
Hiring an SEO Company
If you have come to the conclusion the hiring the work out would be a better idea, then who do you go to? It would make sense to go to someone who is good at their job and has a great reputation. Oregon Web Solutions is just that. They have created a great company that helps multiple types of local businesses rank online and in Google searches for targeted keywords. With more than 20 years of online marketing experience between the owners, Oregon Web Solutions has the required experience to know what pitfalls to avoid and what really works.
If you are in any way skeptical, they do offer a free video analysis of your business where Seth will go over the finer points of what you can do to create bigger and better growth online. He will also point out any errors or issues you may be currently having that are preventing you from ranking better right now.
Compared to other SEO’s their costs are middle of the road. They are not this highest, but they are not the lowest either. From my experience, if you penny pinch marketing costs, your results will suffer greatly. This isn’t to say go with the highest bid you get, but don’t hurt yourself either by trying to save a buck. Poorly done SEO can hurt you worse than anything.
