I´ve seen many Search Marketing Engagements fail for the following reasons:
When I have search marketing conversations with clients, I talk very little about metrics such as singular Google Rankings & Page Rank. Instead, I work with clients to learn more about their business and identify actionable goals that can be facilitated via search marketing. The Internet is the ultimate lead generation sales machine and a website should be a revenue generator, not an overhead expense.
Also, I fervently believe that directness and honesty are necessary to a successful search marketing engagement. I tell folks what they need to hear about their website which isn´t always the same as what they want to hear. I´ve found that most businesspeople want the straight dope on their web initiatives (even if it stings a bit) because they can´t fix a problem when they don´t know one exists.
How do I operate? I don´t offer tiered services or force people into long contracts. I don´t have expensive overhead. I sell my time by the hour and Clients can buy as little or as much as necessary to get the job done. I only work on projects where I feel my contributions will have positive ROI. I will not work with Clients with unreasonable expectations, uncoachable Clients, or with websites that have too many flaws to allow for a successful search marketing effort.
