Frustrated with your SEO company?  Want to have a better understanding and control of your marketing? You can!

There are many things a company can do to improve their customer reach and ranking on the search engines, business directories, in YouTube, and in the local maps listings.  Our vision is a completely new model that we call … “done-with-you marketing”.

Done-With-You Marketing

business_owner-300x147-1Done with-you-marketing is a unique marketing method structured so that any office employee, family member (high school or above), or even a parent of a child waiting for their dance or gymnastics class to be done can do your marketing. Whether it’s signing up for an account, adding your company to a business directory, or creating a simple online video for your company, step-by-step instructions are given using short videos each step of the way.

When there is an item that is not clear or you just need a little assistance, our our team of advanced marketers are right there on instant chat to help.  From time to time there may be an item that is either too time intensive, or that is advanced such as SEO linking or a press release that you need done.  We can quickly step in and do this for you, allowing you to continue with your marketing and moving forward.

This done-with-you marketing enables small to medium sized businesses to have an inside person become quite knowledgeable and have insight into what search engines are looking for and how they work.  These short instructional videos give greater understand as to not only the “how”, but the “why” to help you understand what really helps a business do well on the internet.

Are you a small to mid-sized business that meets any one of these criteria:

  1. Does someone in your office have 20-30 minutes a day to spend on your marketing?
  2. Do you want local marketing expertise inside your company?
  3. Do you just need a little guidance to help you along with your local marketing?
  4. Are you already a professional marketer for a company and just need a good outline and plan to execute the marketing you already do?
  5. Do you need a place to purchase marketing items such as press releases, directory services, or safe SEO linking for your company, so you can do the rest?
  6. Do you want to save over $13,000 this year on your marketing?

If you answered “yes” to any of the questions above…done-with-you marketing may be just the thing your company has been looking for.

Small businesses will be turned off by “do-it-for-me” models that don’t enable them to maintain their brand identity and interact authentically with their customers.

Court Cunningham - CEO of Yodle

Speaking about do-it-yourself local marketing... My first car was a battered 12-year-old Volkswagen Passat. It broke down countless times and each repair was expensive for the poor student that I was. In a bid to reduce the escalating repair bills, I started to learn how cars worked by reading, researching, and asking others to teach me a thing or two. After a few months, I knew about carburetors, fuse boxes, alternators, and even how to replace a car’s kick-starter. It saved me a fortune. I then only used mechanics for major engine issues beyond my basic scope.

Some Common Questions

Question: Why do marketers charge me $1,500 to $2,500 per month to do my marketing? I don't understand why this costs so much!

Answer: a good marketer will spend an average of about 30 minutes daily on your company.  A good marketer is worth between $100 and $150/hr. If they spend 30 minutes a day at a rate of $100/hr it equates to 900 minutes (or 15 hours of work) which comes out to $1,500/mo.  This is how many firms calculate their fees.

In addition to these fees, there are 3rd party services and products that should be purchased such as Yext ($42-$83/mo), UBL ($79-399/yr) or  LocalEZE ($297/yr)  which provides hundreds of business listings managed by a single Interface, Traditional and safe SEO linking, and press releases for your company.  These types of marketing items are either complicated, time saving or time consuming, or just plain too much work and just makes sense to spend a few dollars to have us do these for you so you can keep moving forward with your marketing.

Question: How much does your done-with-you marketing cost vs. just having you do all my marketing?

If you figure a professional company is charging about $1,500 a month for marketing services this comes out to $18,000 per year.  This is a pretty standard price and cost for most businesses.  Some may cost substantially more depending on competition and location.  (Note: if you were a personal injury law firm in Miami, FL or New York, you would probably expect to pay $10,000 or more per month because of the competition and location) 

Done-with-you services run $97/mo or $1,164/yr.  This is taking into consideration you are already paying your employee to do his/her other work and responsibilities. Other services will need to be purchased to either save your time (or sanity) which will run approx. $3,200 over the course of a year.  

Breakdown: 

  • Done-For-You = $18,000/yr
  • Done-With-You = $3,164/yr
  • Savings = $13,636/yr.

Question: When does it make sense to have an agency do my marketing vs. doing it myself?

There are times when having an agency performing your marketing is really the best choice.  Here are some reasons you may want to consider having an agency do your marketing:

  1. If you are in a competitive space where there is a lot of competition.
  2. If you are in a larger city where more work and sophistication is needed to compete
  3. If your company is large enough to afford a larger budget ($1,500+/mo) to have professionals perform the work and take it to a higher level
  4. If you are a mature company with consistent cash flow.
  5. If you want to grow your company quickly.  Typically having us perform this work for you will take about 1/3 of the time because we understand exactly what needs to be done and how to do it quickly and efficiently.
  6. If you don’t want to hire an in-house employee to do this full time.  Typically a full time employee ($12/hr) will cost a company approx. $30,000/yr plus the cost of marketing services.
  7. If you want to perform advanced marketing services such as paid search, RTB Advertising, Retargeting, automated craigslist advertising, or other types of marketing that require special tools and expertise.
