Five Reasons Your Small Business Should Outsource Your SEO and Online Marketing

Your company deserves its best chance to thrive online. Whether you’re considering outsourcing your online marketing or taking the DIY route, the goal is always the same: seeing company growth from improving your online reach and search engine ranking. Here are five reasons why outsourcing could be the right step to promote your business's growth:
  1. Saving money. This might sound crazy at first, but doing your SEO and online marketing in-house means either hiring an SEO specialist to work on-site or taking it all on personally. An on-location specialist can run you thousands of dollars each month; outsourcing is typically a fraction of that. “Well, then, I’ll do it myself! That’s free, right?” That can be true, but that all depends on how much an hour of your work is worth. When you run your own business, your time is money, and an hour spent on one task is an hour lost towards another.
  2. It’s more efficient. Unless you have the time, resources and SEO experience to do it personally, you'll likely be robbing your company of its greatest opportunity to thrive online.  
  3. It’s less work for you. This is incredibly valuable. While multitasking is regarded as a skill, more often than not it leads to tasks not getting the time given to them that is required for maximum effectiveness.
  4. Increased ROI. Outsourcing to a dedicated team will undoubtedly increase your online reach, maximizing your opportunity for new business leads.  On the flip side, doing your own SEO or hiring someone relatively inexperienced to do it can do more damage than good to your online presence, rankings on Google, traffic to their site, and leads generated online.  If errors are made while you are doing your SEO, it can result in Google penalties.
  5. It’s less stressful. When you outsource your online marketing, you save yourself the trouble of SEO duties, content writing, and other time-consuming factors, while still being able to work closely with the team to make sure your business is represented online in the exact way you’d like.

Five tips to make social media work for your business.

1.  Understand your brand. It doesn't matter which way you go if you don't care where you end up.  Before you start making social media posts, make sure you understand your brand, and where you want your social media posts to take your business. Make a plan about the content you plan on posting, how often you plan on posting and if you are going to be actively creating content or outsourcing it to a company that specializes in social media posts and marketing. 2. Keep your sales pitches to a minimum. Your social media should be engaging to your followers. Your posts should invite your followers to your site from time to time, so your websites can make the sale pitches.  Your posts should funnel traffic to your website.   3.

Marketing, are you doing it?

The number one mistake small businesses make is cutting costs by eliminating their marketing funds. A business owner cutting their marketing budget is like a farmer who stops watering their plants to save money on their water bills. If your business is struggling the reason may be because you have been neglecting your marketing. Start off small but smart. Small companies should start with lean marketing. Make sure you are doing the things that are free and pick inexpensive marketing options that can be tracked or measured to see if they are successful activities. If you find a marketing venue that works make sure you repeat what works for you. Set aside a marketing budget that you can draw from to make your marketing more professional and reach more people. Marketing pays off in the long run, and you may not see a return right away. Remember that marketing is like farming, you need to plant the seeds and wait and nurture it until you can bring in the harvest.  It takes patience a
