Why can’t I just trial your SEO services for 1-2 months?

One of the questions customers often ask us is if they can get a trial of our search engine optimisation services. They want to try us out for a month or two, and if they like the results, they will buy an SEO package or bespoke plan.

We get that you want to make sure SEO is the right choice for your business before committing to a longer-length commitment. However, you have to dedicate yourself to playing the long game when it comes to SEO. 

We promise you though; it’s well worth the wait.

How long does it take to get SEO results?

Good SEO takes time. Let’s say you want to rank as high as possible for the term ‘sourdough baking kits’. There are about 1.2 million results for this search term indexed in Google, and 11.7 million in Bing.

This means a great deal of work is needed for your website to rise above (pun intended) the rest.

A lot of research needs to take place before SEO optimisation can begin. 

An agency will need to look at which keywords are the best ones to target, as well as how your competitors are doing in the search engine results. They’ll need to review the current state of your website and see if any existing content needs to be improved. They will also need to see who is currently linking to your website and which other sites they can potentially get backlinks from.

As you can see, there are many factors that can influence SEO, and it’s important to take all of them into account.

But I’ve spoken to another agency, and they say they give me a month’s trial…

If an SEO agency says they can get you to the top of the search engines in the space of a month, we’d highly recommend you run away. Really fast. 

They’ll either be making promises they can’t keep or using dodgy techniques that could lead to your website being banned by the search engines.

In conclusion, if you were to ask the question ‘why can’t I trial your SEO services for a month or two’? Our answer would be that this is a waste of your money and time. SEO is an investment, and it can take many months and sometimes years to see results. Get it right though, and it can be one of the most cost-effective ways of promoting your business to both new and existing customers.
