Search Engine Optimization has evolved in a massive way over the last several years. While many SEO strategies have remained consistent, there are new (and constantly evolving) best practices for their implementation. Some SEO tactics and tricks that used to propel businesses to the tops of the SERPs [Search Engine Results Pages] just don’t work at all anymore. In fact, use them and Google will penalize you in a big way. Because SEO has transformed into this marketing strategy that many companies don’t recognize and a good number find overwhelming, outsourcing SEO services exists.

With getting in the Google penalty box such a threat, you can see why, according to THE STATE OF ENTERPRISE SEO IN 2017 conducted earlier this year by seoClarity, BuzzStream and North Star Inbound, almost 40% of respondents identified content development as the most pressing SEO issues for companies this year.

Because SEO has transformed into this marketing strategy that some companies don’t fully recognize and a good number find overwhelming, outsourcing SEO services exists. In fact, according to the same survey research, while 40% of large enterprise dedicate $20K is allocated to SEO activity per month — not including the cost of employees’ salaries and overhead. Yet nearly 70% these same respondents don’t think their team has achieved leadership status and only 18% of managers at large enterprise companies (>1000 employees) rate themselves as successful at being “scalable and repeatable.”

Instead of being confused by SEO and trying to keep up with optimization tactics that no longer make sense to you (which is understandable if your primary business isn’t SEO), consider outsourcing SEO services.

Do You Have the Resources to Manage Your Own SEO?

Do you ever find yourself wondering, “Is SEO still relevant?” “Does it really matter if I use keywords?” “What keywords should I be using?” “Is link-building behind us?” When you outsource your search engine optimization, you don’t need to be the one figuring all of this out. You give your SEO agency your business goals, and it handles the inner workings for you.

Maybe you realize what’s required of you in terms of SEO and being visible online today, but you don’t have the resources to do what’s necessary. According to the survey, nearly 70% of large enterprise companies (>1000 employees) have in-house SEO teams of 5 people or less. Seen in this light, if you want to be seen in search results and connect with your target buyer, but your budget, team or time presents limitations, outsourcing SEO services makes sense.

You don’t need to be stressed or overstretched. And, you don’t need to concern yourself with growth hacking your way into top SERP placement. Outsourcing to an agency can save you sanity, time and money – and your business.

When It’s Time to Outsource All or Most of Your SEO

Good SEO depends on creating WISE content from carefully researched keywords. It relies on analyzing Big Data to come up with sound strategies for linking and sharing on social media.

Site audits and other analytics, as well as well-known SEO tactics like maintaining a keyword-rich blog all matter to your bottom line.
