The majority of SEO companies have built their model on providing the same “manufacturing line” strategy to everyone with one sole purpose – make themselves money without being held accountable to results. Why shouldn’t you hold a SEO company accountable? You deserve accountability and an understanding of the services provided. Read on for our true feelings on most SEO packages available today.

What’s wrong with most SEO Packages?

Most SEO companies offer SEO packages (Silver, Gold, Platinum) that provide the same link building services that every other SEO company is offering. If every SEO company is practicing the same strategy how will your website outrank a competitor? The bottom line is, one-size fits all packages with no performance guarantee are not created for you, the client. These SEO packages ensure profits for SEO companies, but don’t provide you much chance of success.

A SEO company can’t honestly provide rankings guarantees before having critical information about your website, target keywords, competition, industry and goals. It’s a business model that fails a large percentage of the time and is only possible, because most people don’t know the details behind Search Engine Optimization. If a SEO company provides you with an estimate and or plan without understanding your goals and your website run in the other direction. They are most likely a SEO chop shop or provide an ineffective service.

To illustrate, here is an example: your website sells luxury cars and a SEO recommends that you your target keyword should be “Luxury Cars”; this keyword phrase is highly competitive with no geographic area target such as “Santa Monica” and will take hundreds of hours each month of work to have a chance at ranking your website. The cost to rank your website for “Luxury Cars” may be $7,000/month and you aren’t guaranteed any return.

However, if you are located in Santa Monica and your keyword target is “Luxury Cars Santa Monica”, you have a much better chance of achieving a positive return on investment. This keyword is more targeted, less competitive and gives you a better chance of making money. The cost needed to achieve this ranking may equal $1,500/month. This cost most be estimated based on your keyword search volume, competition, search intent and current state of your website. How can a company quote you a price or present a SEO package without understanding these elements?

A SEO company that sells you a Gold package for $2,000/month may take years to achieve a top ranking for “Luxury Cars”. If “Luxury Cars” is your target keyword, you will be wasting money for a long time with little chance of success. If your target keyword is “Luxury Cars Santa Monica” and you sign up for the Gold package for $2,000/month, you may be unnecessarily paying and extra $500/month. In either scenario, the client is not the primary concern.

Beware of any SEO company offering cookie-cutter SEO packages with no performance-based guarantee. If there are performance-based guarantees, make sure there is a contract clause that holds the SEO company accountable if they don’t achieve the guaranteed ranking position.
