  • @jezabel86 If they don't have a budget they will die. Sorry, the evolution doesn't care about your budget. You grow and evolve or become obsolete.

  • Great presentation Will. The problem most SME's have is that they don't have the budget to use an agency such as yourselves. They might have a budget for $500-$750 a month.
    Realistically how can an SEO agency do all what you say when the agency doesn't have the time (due to budget) to go after each individual link - when they know they can run a tool that can get them decent results?
