Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?
A. Before hiring an internet marketing professional ensure they have adequate knowledge of the related aspects of internet marketing. For example, don't hire a web designer who is not also thoroughly familiar with sound search engine optimization practices and vice versa.
All of these efforts work together hand in hand so it's best to hire a professional web designer who will not sabotage your SEO efforts.
Look for an SEO who also knows how to do web design - that way you won't just make the search engines think your website looks attractive but also your human visitors as well.
If you're looking for someone to provide managed social media marketing services be sure they are familiar with SEO and web design to leverage the most out of the social media content that is to be syndicated across sites like Twitter, Youtube, and Facebook.
Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?
A. If I were a customer I'd be saying, "gee, I wish I knew how to do web design, seo, and really leverage social media for maximum exposure for my business."
If you don't know what you're doing when it comes to internet marketing find a professional who convinces you they are an expert and they'll be available to work with you on an ongoing basis.
Internet marketing is constantly changing and to stay ahead of your competition it takes continual effort on an ongoing basis.
Try to find an internet marketing professional who is friendly because the best internet marketing campaigns will mean you work together on an ongoing basis to continually create great quality content that educates and empowers your audience.
Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
A. Ask for references, ask to see a portfolio, and ask what happens if you're not satisfied with the provider's work...
If the providers hesitates, stutters, or dodges these questions you may be better off finding someone else!
