You all read about my First Best Decision. So this post is going to be about my second best decision I mad in my business.
I am of the generation that grew up with the internet so I fully understand the full potential power of it. I also understand the full power of google and all the other search engines. Lets face it nobody my age even really knows what the Yellow Pages are. We just consider it a book that comes that we instantly throw into the recycling.
Everyone nowadays searched for any and everything that they need on their computer and mobile device.
Me for example I never leave home without my iPhone and am always searching for stuff on it.
Now a days when ever anyone needs an electrician they don’t go searching all throughout the house looking for their yellow book. They go search on Google for an electrician.
So I went out right away and found a good and reputable SEO company so they could get me to the first page of Google the right and correct way because their are a lot of spammers out their that will get you to the first page for a week or two but then Google nabs them and penalizes the site.
The company I found was http://portlandseonow.com
They ended up doing an amazing job for me. They got me to the first page for the terms I wanted and they did it with class an style.
They told me up front that it will take time for me to get to the first page and that I had to be patient and trust them I don’t know about you but I have a tough time trusting people that I meet online. So I actually met them in person and I got a really good vibe from them so I decided to go with them.
I am so glad that I went with my gut. They were not the cheapest but they were the most honest and up front of what I should expect to happen. No fool should believe that you can get to the first page overnight. It was amazing how many companies told me they could do it overnight. I know better than that. So I went with the one company that was local and was the most upfront with me. I realize they can’t tell me everything they do but he told me what he could.
It seemed like I waited an eternity but eventually I got to the first page and then my phone started to ring off the hook. A lot were people out getting quotes but a lot of them turned into paying clients. I worked hard and had to sift through a lot of bad customers to get to the good ones but it was all worth it.
Being on the first page of google continuously grows y business like crazy.
