Episode 12: Questions to Ask a Digital Agency

What to Ask in your Chat with a Strategist

In this episode, we’re doing things a little differently. It’s common in the industry for businesses to feel like they could be ripped off by their SEO agency. We’re combating the things to look out for and offering suggestions on how to be sure you’re asking all the right questions.

We hear a lot of horror stories from businesses about their experiences with other agencies. False promises, straight-up lies and stereotypes that are all-too-true are common.

“This is your business; it’s your livelihood. Why would you risk it?” – Anthony Engelman
