In our hyper-digitized world, helping improve an online presence for a business is a necessity. A functioning website allows prospective clients and customers to find a business online, thereby boosting their sales and reputation via the increased level of engagement your business gets.
And this is where you come in.
Getting found online is the product of an SEO plan, and, in actual fact, it’s quite a lot of work. Most businesses won’t know what to do or simply won’t have the time to do it. That’s why they come to you. Sure, you can do it yourself, but in today’s market, that will quickly land you second place.
A better, smarter idea is to outsource this work, and here, we take a look at what some of these reasons for this are.
1.You need help with the workload
In a nutshell, SEO is not actually that difficult to understand or even do. The problem is, when that shell breaks, its contents undergo a chemical reaction with the atmosphere where it balloons to unmanageable sizes.
SEO is full of concepts, strategies, dos and don’ts, and acronyms that send many people and businesses into a head spin. Take, for instance, the white label SEO strategy of RSOS (Reverse Sink or Swim). This concept was coined by a group called OMG (One Man Gang) and related to the practice of using relevant keywords or directly related words to your webpage for links. This, in theory, boosts your results and is thought to generate a more powerful link.
The problem here is this: many agencies just aren’t equipped to be navigating this ocean of information to be relating to SEO. Naturally, you come in and take this confusion and workload off of them. Once sealing the deal, white label companies take charge of this project and have it done by one of the many SEO agencies out there. Often, this is significantly cheaper than doing it in-house.
Remember, delegation is a large part of commercial success, so outsource your SEO to someone who is able to complete it cheaply and efficiently.
When you’re running your business, time is money. A large part of SEO is producing guest posts and blog content whereby links are inserted into the content, and that content is placed around the internet. The problem is, in order to write a piece of content, find a site to publish it on, and have it up and looking slick, you have used mountains of time.
The SEO industry is an interesting case study in transparency. This is because most agencies are more than willing to share how their streamline your IT business processes and SEO strategies operate, and they do this without fear of businesses taking their blueprints and becoming self-sufficient. That’s because they know that doing this is a big job that requires many resources.
Additionally, many SEO plans actually cost significantly less than an employee’s full-time salary. With savings of both time and money, it’s no surprise that smart businesses will white label and outsource so willingly.
3.It feeds into your marketing strategy
Marketing is obviously a huge aspect of business, and your marketing and SEO are complimentary. SEO has a marketing function of sorts, although it does this while disguising itself from marketing’s blatant and annoying sales tactics. By bringing customers, traffic, and engagement to a business through organic search engine results, you avoid the overtones of insidiousness attached to more overt marketing tactics. (1)
A good quality SEO agency will assist with the development and execution of the following:
- A keyword strategy
- Content strategy
- Link building strategy
- Content marketing
In your initial meetings about their SEO strategy, you can collect this information from your client and simply relay it to the agency. Boost a client’s marketing and profiteer in the process while an agency does all of the heavy liftings.
4.They will protect you from black hat SEO strategies
For context, we need to define two key terms here:
- White hat SEO: This refers to reputable SEO practices that will ideally lead to positive SEO outcomes
- Black hat SEO: This refers to techniques that are frowned upon in the industry. It can be thought of as cheating the SEO system. While some of them might yield short-term benefits, Google has become so sophisticated enough that it can generally detect when websites are trying to rank through dubious means.
As we’ve mentioned previously, SEO is not as difficult to understand as many agencies may have you believe. When other companies and websites link to you, this, in theory, boosts authority and your SERP (Search Engine Results Page) ranking. (2)
Using an agency will keep your practices above board and will prevent you from falling into nefarious black hat SEO practices like using PBNs (Private Blog Networks) and keyword stuffing, practices that can become inadvertent accidents when navigating publisher site relationships on top of unmanageable loads of guest posts.
To wrap it up
For many businesses, SEO is hugely important to the online visibility of their business. By outsourcing your SEO, you can make up for gaps in your knowledge, save time, augment marketing strategies, and avoid practices that will harm online authority. It’s for these reasons, and many more, that smart companies will choose to outsource their [SEO] work to an agency.
