The digital landscape is akin to the vast Australian outback—a wild, untamed frontier where only the fittest survive. In this realm, SEO is your map, your compass, and your all-terrain vehicle. However, the journey ahead requires a reliable guide. The question is, how do you choose the right SEO agency?
1. Start with Authenticity – It’s in the Story
“Marketing is no longer about the stuff that you make, but about the stories you tell.” – Seth Godin
The story of SPE is one rooted in authentic, homegrown expertise. Peter Brittain, the founder, has been through the wringer—navigating the dense forests of Lycos, Yahoo, AltaVista, and Ask Jeeves before Google even came into the picture. His two decades of experience wasn’t gained in a corporate boardroom but by real-world trial and error. So, when Peter says, “We aim to build constructive, respectful, and lasting relationships with our clients,” you know it’s not just a tagline. It’s a lived experience.
“Since we started with Peter we have seen wonderful results for our SEO ranking. He is honest, quick and has achieved things no other company had.”
– Daniella Posner, Dental O So Gentle
2. Specialised Expertise—Is it the Right Fit?
Every agency offers SEO services, but do they have expertise in your specific industry? Are they acquainted with local trends and consumer behaviours? Specialised expertise should be non-negotiable, especially in today’s highly segmented digital market.
“SPE have been instrumental in growing our ecommerce business, All Things Nice. We started with no rankings and quickly grew by being on the first page for lots of our target keywords.”
– Emma Higgins, All Things Nice
3. Transparency and Reporting
Transparency in reporting and a willingness to engage are signs of an agency that takes accountability seriously. If an agency hides their methodology or results, that’s a red flag. Remember, it’s your business, and you have a right to know how it’s being managed on the digital front.
“Professional team of SEO professionals. Great reporting, SEO processes and engagement from their SEO team. The continuing support that we receive has convinced us that signing the original marketing agreement has been one of the best decisions we’ve made.”
– Tom Broomhead, One Shade
4. Reviews and Testimonials
In today’s digital age, reviews and testimonials offer a level of credibility that no amount of advertising can buy. They act as a transparent window into the client-agency relationship, offering you a glimpse of the experiences that previous customers have had.
“I just wanted to touch base to let you know the SEO campaign has been really effective. We’ve been at full capacity for a few months now.”
– Bianca Chaney, Kid Speak
5. Cost-Effectiveness – Big Results Without Big Agency Costs
It’s tempting to believe that higher cost equals better service. But, as we say at SPE, “We always try to do great work, that works great—without the big agency costs.”
“Highly recommended SEO company. Very professional approach and delivered top-notch results within the estimated time. We will be long-term clients!”
– Paul Summers, Summers Legal
6. Personal Connection
Finally, it’s vital to choose an agency with whom you have a personal connection. After all, as Simon Sinek says, “People don’t buy what you do; they buy why you do it.” At SPE, we believe in building lasting relationships, not just business transactions.
So, when you’re navigating the digital outback in search of an SEO agency, remember these six landmarks on your journey. Choose an agency like SEO Perth Experts, where authentic storytelling, specialised expertise, and a passion for client success are more than just words on a webpage.
