Hello, wondering if anyone has invested in a company to do SEO to increase leads in your area?

I am talking with a company that wants to charge $100 a month for 12 months. We would be front page on Google, Yahoo, and Bing searches. Are people actually searching for Matterport providers in the Boston area or do we still have to educate before we sell?

Anyone who has optimized their searches, doe sin bring in many leads?

Thank you!

I'd exercise caution when dealing with those companies.

I typically get 1 or 2 calls a week from companies wanting to "put me on the 1st page of google".

I'm no internet expert, but from what I can tell is that to be at the front of google's organic search takes time and effort.. things like new content and blog posts seem to help lots.

Alternatively you can simply pay for google ad words and get on the page that way.

Here's an article I came across:

The old saying holds so true here "If it sound to good to be true then most likely it not" so run not walk away from this company.

I agree that you have to be very careful with SEO companies. A red flag should go up anytime a company guarantees that they'll get you to a specific rank in Google.

I also get a lot of calls and emails offering me SEO services.

Is your site built on Wordpress? If so, there are several plugins that can optimize your site for SEO like Yoast SEO which is by far the most popular. A good caching plugin goes a long way.

More than anything, it's your content THAT IS your SEO. If you have great content, people will stay on your page more.

PM me for a longer list of tips and suggestions that you can do yourself before you hire out.

Create a blog within Google Blogger

Describe each tour you do IE address and community location

Embed the tour

ask for more business with a strong call to action.

A year from now I hope there will be hundreds of blogs that contain back links to your website for new business in your town.
