Startup SEO Services FAQs

Even though you have a killer product and top-notch team, Google requires you to prove your authority by repeatedly meeting certain performance and content standards. SEO—to put it plainly—is tough. It’s high maintenance and constantly changing. That’s why we recommend that you consult a professional if you’re not an expert at it yourself.

SEO is one of the most cost efficient ways to promote your company. It allows you to put your brand on the map without requiring regular cash injections and helps you to engage people with a known need for your product. By having well-optimized site content, you can further get your company in front of various decision makers in a natural, unobtrusive way.

Neither is necessarily more important than the other, though SEO has a longer shelf life. While PPC ads only last for as long as you have the budget for them, SEO never stops working. A blog that has first-page ranking today may still be ranking five years from now,

That said, we believe that the best marketing strategies use organic and paid tactics in tandem in order to maximize your reach.

We describe the process for evaluating SEO ROI on our blog. The short answer: there’s no cookie-cutter formula for it. However, there are various factors and KPIs that you can track to understand how SEO is contributing to your site’s visibility and overall sales goals.

Here are five key things that startups should consider when choosing an SEO agency:

  1. Experience: Look for an agency that has a track record of success with clients in your industry. It’s especially helpful if they have experience working with startups.

  2. Strategy: Make sure the agency has a clear and comprehensive strategy for how they plan to improve your search engine rankings. Avoid agencies that use tactics that could be considered spammy or unethical.

  3. Communication: Choose an agency that is transparent and communicative. They should be able to clearly explain their approach and keep you informed of their progress.

  4. Cost: Determine your budget and look for an agency that can provide the services you need at a price that fits your budget. Be wary of agencies that promise unrealistic results for a very low price.

  5. Cultural fit: It’s important to find an agency that aligns with your company’s values and culture. You’ll be working closely with them, so it’s important that you feel comfortable with their team and approach.
