Searching For an Internet Marketing Company in The Woodlands
When you embark on the search for an internet marketing company you may start to feel like an explorer from the 1700s. You are looking for something that you know is there, however you do not know how to get there exactly; rather you have a vague sense of direction. Within this guide I will go over the basics that define a well-rounded internet marketing company. With my guidance, you will not end up like Columbus and settle for something that is not what you thought!
What is an Internet Marketing Company?
First, let us start with what exactly is an “Internet Marketing Company”?
An Internet Marketing Company is a business operated in a professional manner who has experience in the development of a business’s online presence. This may include promoting your brand on Social Media, SEO (Search Engine Optimization), Web Development, Email Marketing, and more.
What an Internet Marketing Company is not:
An Internet Marketing Company is not a company who teaches marketing directly. However, great internet marketing companies educate their clients on the aspects of what they are doing. After all, when you pay for something, you would like to know exactly what you are paying for! Keep in mind, when you approach an internet marketing agency with the intent to learn what they do step-by-step, they will not give you exact details because great internet marketing companies have their own techniques that work for them! You would not ask a chef for his secret recipe, so do not ask an internet marketing company their company secrets!
Where to Find an Internet Marketing Company?
Google!- When you look for an internet marketing company, you are looking for them to raise your brand awareness! If they are truly successful in what they do, then they will rank well themselves!
Yelp- Check your local internet directory, or even Yelp. Search for an internet marketing company with great reviews! They do not necessarily have to have a lot of reviews, if they have a lot of really good reviews, then expect to pay a higher premium for their services. If you are looking for a moderate priced internet marketing company, search for a company who ranks well and does not have as many rankings as their counterparts. They could be just as good as the other company, or even better, however they could be a younger company.
Friends- If you are an entrepreneur, or business owner, it is safe to say that you have a couple friends whom are as well! Ask them who they are using as their internet marketing company. Word of mouth is the best way to find an excellent internet marketing company. This is because if the internet marketing company is doing an excellent job then their customers will talk all about how impressed they are. Then, when their customers, whom are your friends, refer you to them they will feel the need to really step their game up to continue on their status quo.
5 Characteristics of a great internet marketing company
They are not people pleasers- A great internet marketing company will not just let their customers tell them what they want. In fact, that is the reason why their customers hired them, was for the internet marketing company to tell you what you need to do! If you call an internet marketing company and they do not give any input on what you are telling them you would like them to do, hang up- because that is not the internet marketing company for you!
Honesty- Internet marketing companies will be 100% transparent with their customers on what they can and cannot do. They will not guarantee outrageous results in unfathomable timeframes. They will not try to hide information from you, or tell you information that they cannot support with factual, or statistical, outcomes.
They have done this before- An internet marketing company should always have some clientele that are their “presentation” clientele. These are the clients whom the internet marketing company brags about their results. This helps the client feel comfortable knowing that they are not hiring a complete amateur.
Personality- When you decide which internet marketing company you are going to use for your business, this company will grow with you. As you grow, they will grow. Pick a company whose team members you have fun with, joke around, and overall get along with. You do not want to have an internet marketing company who you absolutely hate, this will cause complications elsewhere.
Responsiveness- Internet marketing changes quickly, almost too quickly, but hey- that is how life goes! If internet marketing itself is quick, then an internet marketing company should be quick! If a company never answers the phone, does not respond to e-mails, or has long/delayed responses; do not use them. Let us say you hire this internet marketing company and decide to use them for web hosting. One day your website goes down, and you cannot figure out why. You call and email your internet marketing company and they do not answer. This can cost you your SEO results, and flat-out lose customers!
