Last year I invested a significant amount of money in my website. Most of the money and work was focused on SEO (Search Engine Optimization). By now, most of you are very familiar with this term and may have spent a fair amount of money yourself. Let me being by telling you that there are many people and organizations who hound us daily with their telemarketing nonsense. Telling us that they can help us close more deals and get us more clients. How many of you are sick and tired of being called by the lead generation companies? I am hounded sometimes 3 to 4 times a day. They call me so much that there are some area codes that I will not answer the phone from for any reason.
Can I be frank with you and tell you my honest opinion about these companies? I will some it up in 5 words "To Good To Be True", and you know what I am talking about. Some of you may have success with these groups, but for the most part I consider them to be a waste of my money.
But back to the subject of SEO marketing. I do believe in this and have great success with it. If you can find a good company that is trustworthy and will give you references for people who are using their service, you will have good results. SEO is a very much a science and should be left to those who are experts and really understand it.
Have any of you had much experience in this area? Have you invested money and if so what kind of results did you get in return?
All I can tell you is that I encourage you to do extensive research on whichever company you decide to work with. These are hard times and we really need to be sure to use our marketing dollars wisely. Remember the golden rule and you will go far. I work with a great company and would be happy to refer you to them, just remember that it is an investment.
If you have a second, take a look at my website and see what this company has done for me. Tell me what you think I always appreciate good and constructive input.
