Thank you for watching SEO video tips from
OurChurch.Com. In this video we’ll discuss what you need to know BEFORE hiring a SEO
promotion company. Hi, I’m Mark Steinbrueck with OurChurch.com,
and on this video, I’m going to talk about the three things you need to know before hiring
a SEO promotion company. The first thing that you need to know or need
to determine is what your goals are. So just simply ask your question: What are my goals
for my website? Is it to get a certain number of visitors? Is it to get sales? Is it to
get inquiries or consultation requests? But it’s important to decide what your goals are
and then also establish a plan to track those goals to determine if your SEO plan is working.
Secondly, are there any changes to your website that need to be done first? Getting additional
traffic to your website is great; however, if there are changes to your website or you’ve
got a sub par website, getting additional traffic to your site isn’t going to do you
as much good as if you make those corrections first. So, it’s important to go through your
website and review it and evaluate it and make any changes that you need to.
Also, if possible, have others take a look at your website to provide feedback to let
you know if there are any changes or any suggestions that they have as well.
Thirdly, or lastly, what is your investment budget? You need to determine exactly what
your investment budget is. Figure out exactly what you are able to put into this investment,
because at first, you’re not going to be getting as much out of it as you are putting into
it. Over time, however, the nature of an investment
or of an SEO marketing plan is that you will get more out of it than what you’re putting
into it. But to start, you need to determine exactly what your budget is, what your investment
budget is, so that you can work with that and you know exactly what you can afford going
into conversations with SEO companies. So those are the three things that you need
to know before hiring a SEO promotion company. Establish your goals or ask the question:
What are your goals? Determine if there are any changes that need
to be made to your website. Figure out exactly what your investment budget
is. I hope that you found this informative and
