How One Person Can Outwork Big SEO Agencies

SEO Agencies

This article is going to break down how one person can outwork the big digital agencies when it comes to SEO and internet marketing.  

But who am I to be giving this kind of advice, right?

Fair enough. My name is Craig Tuttle. I used to work for two of the SEO agencies in my city as a Director of SEO, then the Director of Marketing. I decided to go out on my own over 5 years ago when I found out we were having our first child. I didn’t want to miss out on time with her because I was working for someone else. I now outrank my former employers (who outsource their SEO client work to me) as well as the other bigger agencies in my city. This article is how I was able to do that not just once, but I repeated it again in multiple cities.  

There’s an old adage that the best results come from the big companies with an army for a workforce, but that’s simply not true. Especially when it comes to digital marketing and actually generating results. You simply have to have the right knowledge and leverage your time, and you can outwork any big marketing agency that you go up against.

It Starts With Knowledge.

An Advanced Guide to Link Building – 7 Must-Have Strategies

Guide to Link Building

During a March Q&A Session with WebPromo Expert, Andrey Lipattsev—a Search Quality Senior Strategist at Google—revealed Google’s top three ranking factors: links, content, and RankBrain. Marketers have since begun to improve their link building efforts and backlink strategies.

Some websites, as expected, went the way of the black hat. They scored higher rankings by manipulating the number of links leading to their page. A later update—codenamed Google Penguin—managed to successfully weed out those employing link schemes and similar black-hat SEO tactics and de-rank them.

With those issues addressed, the focus shifted entirely to link quality, not quantity.
