Are SEOs in London better than SEO Consultants in Southampton?
There is a perception that London is the hub of digital and therefore ‘better’. It is certainly more competitive in London so being better at sales may need to be a necessity. The digital game is ever-changing including SEO and as long as your SEO Consultant / Agency has the experience and remain continually up-to-date. I like to look ahead of the game by anticipating the trends. By ensuring the SEO strategy and tactics employed are future-proofed so our clients benefit from this. I can’t stress enough how important the client/supplier fit is. Some may like to baffle with science or go hard on the sales. My concern is SEO success for my clients because my business depends on it.
Are you in London or Hampshire?
SEO Strategy Ltd is based in Southampton, Hampshire but have clients in London, Manchester, Leeds (all over). The beauty of digital resides in the fact it doesn’t matter where we are. So long as the communication is effective. With SEO being technical sometimes it’s a lot easier to have an email or report to digest. Then have a catch up call to go through anything that isn’t clear.
What is a virtual SEO agency?
A virtual digital agency is basically an agency where everyone works remotely and not tied to a building. The Corona Virus put remote working to the test and businesses now have first hand experience and have seen it works. In some cases productivity was improved. A digital agency should embrace modern, real world working. The 9 to 5 is arguably an outdated concept. With the evolution of smartphone, we do not switch off. There are downsides to this but a virtual agency exploits the ability to work in a flexible manner and fit schedules of talented freelancers. The focus within a virtual agency is quality. Chaining creative and technical people to a desk is not always conducive. The output and results is where we decide to place emphasis on.
