Work with a local provider
The internet has made it possible to communicate with people far away, probably in another continent. This might tempt you to hire an SEO provider who is not on your continent. On the other hand, the internet has opened doors for online fraud and scam. It is therefore important to meet the person you are planning to hire. With a local SEO agency, you have the ability and flexibility to catch up with them anytime. You need to understand the type of person you are going to hire, for many reasons, one of them being there will be huge amounts of money involved. A strong relationship with the SEO provider is key to a successful campaign.
Say no to overseas outsourcing
After selecting a local SEO provider, ask them if they outsource any SEO work overseas. If that is the case, it will be like you are working with an individual overseas, which is highly discouraged from point one above. Many SEO companies who outsource their work overseas, charge high amounts and get the work done from their for a fraction of the amounts charged. An overseas SEO provider is not aware of the location and people of the area they are creating content for and might have poor English. In many cases, SEO work from overseas is poor, avoid such at all cost.
Get a customized SEO strategy
A successful SEO strategy needs planning and complex analysis. Since all businesses are unique, there is nothing like one size approach. Never choose a package over the shelf, you will fail terribly. A reputable SEO provider will offer you an SEO custom designed for each business since they have different products and services and goals.
