Has the time come for your company to gain a presence in the online realm? Finding quality local SEO services can be a daunting task, but it does not have to be. In this short post I will share some tips with you to help make this process easier.
When contracting out local SEO services, you should make sure to do some investigating before just handing your money over to a company or individual. Here are a few things to consider before going forward:
- Is the business or person legit? If it is a business, they should be able to be found online, meaning they should have a Google My Business Page, Yelp, Manta, Yellow Pages, etc… These directory style websites can give you a quick confirmation that a the company you are talking with is legitimate.
- How did you find them? Did you happen to find information on this company or individual by checking Google for SEO services? Do they have any track record of proof that they can rank anything online? Before paying someone to help you get ranked online, you should make sure they have at least 1 thing they can show you that they worked on. It could be a website, video, business listing, or anything else that requires SEO to rank. A quality SEO should have some great ideas and tips soon after analyzing your site.
- Do they have any testimonials? When an SEO does good work for a person or business, they will almost always ask for a testimonial. These testimonials are important because it shows you that this person has provided quality local SEO services before, and has helped a business enhance their online presence. You can find testimonials for an SEO on their website, or places like LinkedIn. You can check out some of my testimonials and recommendations on LinkedIn here.
Before hiring someone to provide local seo services for you, just make sure to investigate these things, and really anything else you feel you should before doing business.

The information you provide us with helps us accomplish 2 main things:
