As some of you may know, I study marketing part-time. In particular SEO ( Search Engine Optimization).
I even do freelance work, well occasionally. A client I worked with had hired someone to work for them before, usually charing $100-200 for SEO. SEO is not cheap, $100-200 is nothing. But the companies would also give some crazy guarantee to my future clients. Then as you expect: Not deliver anything of value and drag out the billing as long as they could.
Not only that, but the work done was usually extremely shoddy, and paying me to fix it just costs them more money. So to anyone other their thinking of buying SEO, I recommend you read this: guaranteed search engine optimization is bullshit.
Great article, and will save you thousands of dollars. Don’t be cheap when you hire someone people. You don’t hire $5 dollar electricians or plumbers do you? Don’t pay peanuts for your marketing or you’ll regret it.
Well that’s my random blog post for the day. Do you guys work any odd jobs to make extra money?
P.S on the bright side, at least I found this pretty awesome YouTube SEO guide.
