Why Does an SEO Agency Need My Input?

If you’ve never worked with an agency before, you may be confused as to why we need your input on a number of things. After all, you’re paying us to do the work! In this blog, we explain why your input is so valuable and how it can positively impact your SEO campaign.

So, why would an SEO agency need my input? Hiring an agency is a 2-way street. You’re hiring us to do the legwork, but there are a number of things that we need from you to ensure that things move smoothly towards a common goal. 

We’re the SEO experts, but nobody knows your business and wider industry better than you. We want to capitalise on that experience to ensure that everything we do is 100% accurate and super-relevant to your business.

Additionally, we want you to be happy with your campaign and see the value in what we do. Being involved in your campaign ensures that you’re kept up-to-date on what we’re doing and how the campaign is performing. You’re less likely to get 6-months in and be completely unhappy or unsatisfied with your results. 

If I Work With an SEO Agency, What Will I Have to Do?

When working with any agency, there are a variety of things that will require your input for the campaign to work. 

At Wildcat Digital, we’ll first need a few bits of information and access to various platforms to get your campaign set up. Then, as your campaign progresses,  we’ll need you to review and approve things before we implement or upload them. 

Onboarding and Set-Up

With Wildcat Digital, your first month with us is actually a set-up month. During this time, we may need regular contact with you for the following purposes:

Content & SEO Tasks

A large part of most SEO campaigns is content-related. As such, we will need you to review and approve this content before it is uploaded. We want to ensure that you are 100% happy with how we present your business online. 

These approvals include:

General Communication

Finally, we like to build and maintain strong relationships with clients. As such, you can expect regular check-ins and updates from your Account Manager. This will ultimately depend on your preferences, but may include weekly emails, meetings to discuss your report and campaign progress, and quick check-ins via phone as appropriate.

These communications may not necessarily require action on your part, but are very beneficial for everyone involved.
