What is SEO Consulting?

SEO consulting is a service wherein a client seeks the advice of a trusted authority in the search engine optimization field to guide his or her campaigns to success. More often than not, the SEO consultant is someone who is highly experienced in SEO and has a strong track record in helping his clients gain greater visibility on search engine results pages (SERPs).

While there’s no official certification program for qualified SEO consultants, clients usually look for the following attributes when they’re interested in working with one:

  • Strong voice in the SEO community
  • Citations from mainstream media establishments
  • Rave reviews in speaking engagements
  • The reputation of the agency he or she represents

SEO consulting engagements are typically limited to picking the brain of the consultant and some analysis on his part. Companies and agencies typically employ SEO consultants to validate their own methods, to critique their current strategy and to offer problem-solving analyses to help hurdle difficult challenges.

When is it time to get a SEO Consultant?

SEO consultants are usually called upon when a company or agency needs the “big guns”  to accomplish its goals. In an ideal world, in-house staff should be able to address any SEO needs that you might have. In reality, however, not all SEOs are of equal skill, experience and specialization. Sometimes, it’s best to seek external assistance rather than to waste time and resources on issues that are out of your team’s expertise.

At SearchWorks, we’re usually approached by SEO consultancy clients in relation to the following matters:

  • Highly competitive niches
  • Google Penalty Diagnosis and Recovery
  • Highly Specialized Technical Requirements
  • Innovation and Creative Requirements
  • Human Resource Development
  • Business Development Advice

We’re very generous with information and we often provide free SEO advice in conferences, webinars, blog posts and on social media. However, if you need dedicated, in-depth sessions where you can pick the brain our resident SEO expert Glen Dimaandal, you might want to book him for a consulting engagement.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire A SEO Consultant?

Glen Dimaandal’s SEO Consultation services start at $100 per hour. This time can be allotted towards question and answer, case analysis or strategic brainstorming. Other SEO consultants in the Philippines may charge a little more or a little less. However, few can claim the level of expertise that Glen brings to the table.

While others may have the impression that SEO consulting services are expensive and unnecessary, we ask what peace of mind and long-term business success means to you. While we don’t charge peanuts for our consulting services, the cost of not knowing whether you’re on the right track or not can cost you exponentially more.
