Aaaliens – If you like working late, is a writer or may be a tech geek, you might be an ideal candidate for an SEO marketing career. An SEO marketing career involves providing SEO services to their clients. The client generally wants their products to be ranked on top of the search engine results, and this is achieved by the use of search engine optimization (SEO) services. You, as the SEO professional, should know how to make client’s websites reach the top of the search engine results for search terms related to their business.
- Check for your specialization
In order to land a client, you can approach any business or website related to their specific needs. Most of the big firms of the SEO world take the approach of putting their experts in the field. If you prefer this kind of job, you have to be ready for meeting new people, for example, when I was working with my then client. I had to go out of the office to meet a client, and the client was very strict about giving me reports. I had to go and visit him everyday, and explain to him the nature of my work. That is part of the job, is to be the specialist. Some clients are very strict, so be sure you are ready to meet new people, handle projects and situations when they arise.
- Throwing good references
Even if you have a shot at becoming an SEO professional, if you don’t have sufficient skills and experience, you still can’t get a good job. I have spent the last few years doing SEO marketing. Before I started I would send out 50-100 job lots every month, trying to find people with great skills. When I started doing this, I had no idea what skills were needed. Every time I found a client who needed an SEO service, I tried to explain what I do, and how I would do it. I always emphasized quality over quantity. When you are Interviewing for an SEO position, you are asked some questions about past clients, but the questions don’t end there. They go on to ask about the process that the SEO professional goes through to provide a service. I try to emphasize the time and quality into the job
You can learn a great deal about an SEO company by talking to some of their clients. I would strongly advise anyone who is going to try to start a career in this field to get some time spent with the companies you are interested in. This will mean that you have an image of the company as well as the person you will be interacting with while doing business. This is very important. You have to convince the company that you are trustworthy, professional and able to complete the job in the stipulated time frame.
- SEO the right way
An SEO company will work with you all the time to get you ranked higher and continue to work with you over the life of your SEO contract. They will provide you with regular updates of analytics reports and traffic conversion rates. They will ask you what you would like to see in terms of rankings while your SEO contract is running. What do you think about the lifetime scope of the contract? Does it include changes for the terms and conditions of the contract after a year is over? You are the client and they are the ones that are organizing the project for you. So be responsible and make a good decision.
An SEO company can alter the terms and conditions of the contract at any time. They can make you a better offer if you are not happy with what is on the site currently. They can say that if you are not happy with the current terms or you would like some changes made to increase your rankings, they are willing to talk about it and maybe come up with a new offer. Remember that your contract only lasts until the next one month. You have to continue to pay for the work even if you don’t see any results for several weeks and in some cases months.
I recommend that you look at the SEO packages that they are offering very carefully. You should be the one to choose the right package and the one that will fit your budget needs. Avoid those that are expensive as there is a price to pay for good SEO. You can’t go wrong with a $100 package and don’t forget that you still have to maintain your marketing to keep your business going. There is a cost for each and every SEO activity you do to your site. You just don’t forget about maintaining your budget each month.
