  4. 4. (1) How have you established your monthly cost?<br />Be sure to get a detailed explanation of the monthly fee, how is worked out? <br />What does it include and what does it exclude? <br />Are there any additional charges? <br />If so, then what for? Be clear about what you are getting for your money<br />
  5. 5. (2) What is your account management structure?<br />Make sure that you know how you account is going to be handled and by who. <br />It’s always important to establish who is going to be working on your site and how it is going to be managed.<br />There is nothing worse than having a faceless contact at the end of a phone. <br />You should establish a good working relationship as the account manager can have a dramatic effect on your online sales.<br />
  6. 6. (3) How many accounts does each account manager deal with?<br />It is crucial to establish how much time is being allocated to your account each month, as a major factor in an SEO campaign is -<br />TIME SPENT WORKING ON THE SITE.<br />If you are one of 30 or 40 accounts allocated to your account manager as with some organisations, then you can quickly establish that with an average of a 40 hrs working week you may only receive around 1 hrs work per week…. a recipe for failure.<br />

  8. 8. (5) Do they guarantee keyword placement on the search engines?<br />If the answer is YES... BEWARE<br />There is not a professional SEO provide anywhere who will make this offer, why?
