|Finding the right SEO expert to handle the Internet marketing for your online business can be a tough task if you’re not prepared for the hiring. A lot of people simply outsource their jobs to the cheapest available or the highest rated workers and hope for the best. More often than not, this ends in disaster and no one gets what they want out of the deal.
You have to approach an Internet marketer just like you’re the boss looking to hire an employee, because that’s exactly what you are the boss, and the marketer is going to be working for you. It’s imperative that you start out by asking questions. You need to see what the marketer is made of and if he/she or the company is going in the same direction.
What are some of the best questions you should be asking? These questions will range from simple and basic to precise and intuitive.
The first question to ask: What are you goals for this project?
What types of programs have you carried out in the past and who are some of your best clients?
What makes you different from the competition?
Have you ever failed to promote a website?
A good targeted question to ask is, What is your target demographic?
Can I have a breakdown of all the services and pricing packages you’re offering?
In all honesty, there are a few dozen questions you should be asking, but these will suffice. One final question to ask: How involved will I be in the SEO?
