The digital marketing economy in the heart of London is growing and booming. Programmers are getting younger, and the demographic is changing. Search engine optimisation, social media marketing and web design are now good opportunity areas for new firms and innovators, and they have a good home in the City of London also referred to as the silicon roundabout.
SEO is becoming very fashionable, especially as the winner of the latest Apprentice won with a business plan based on digital marketing, making a website go up and down as he put it. The reality is that there are many independent consultants or agencies that do very good work around helping local businesses advertise online like Blewsocial.com. Online marketing can be expensive if you use major digital marketing agencies or do it on your own as there are so many pitfalls. Businesses who start a PPC campaign inevitably run out of money, just because the don’t know what they are doing. An SEO expert can help with that.
In a vibrant city, you get so many options to find a local London SEO company that can easily deliver on your online marketing needs. There are pros and cons, but the main pro is that you pay a fraction of the cost with a consultant rather than an agency. And the main con is that they typically work alone or with a very select group of outsourcers. Which isn’t a disadvantage to you as the work that gets delivered will be no different from the main agencies.
It may sound like a difficult task to find an expert, but it’s simple because all you have to do is ask for proof. If they are ranking their sites for the keywords they want then surely they can rank yours? If you consultant can’t rank his website then that is a giveaway, and you should run a thousand miles, simply because there are so many choices in London. A quick Google search will present a choice of suitable agencies, so eliminate the big ones and go for the independents. You will thank me for that.
