Company Review By Reputation Overview & Criteria Explained

Before we get deep into the review of each agency, it’s important to understand each criterion and why we chose it.

Because of the ever-changing landscape on Google, what worked last year, does not work the same this year. Without an understanding of this, not having a team to move quickly on changes and having expertise in the field, an SEO campaign can quickly fail.

So here are the main evaluation categories, why they should play a part in your decision-making process and why they are important to the success of an SEO company's services.

Years in Business

Google has dramatically changed since its inception. The more an SEO company has been part of this change, experienced this change and most importantly understands how & why Google has changed the more likely the agency will be to adapt to future changes.

It’s not good enough to merely know the latest ranking hack anymore.

Without a thorough understanding of how search engines work, your website is only ever one algorithm update away from losing its top spots.

Experience and years in business give a good indication the SEO agency possesses this understanding.

Company Size

Too big and you’re just a number in the system… hire a one-man-band or freelancer and you probably won’t have enough resources made available to you to move fast with your campaign.

You want the company to be small enough so you have an SEO specialist working on your campaign, but big enough so the specialist doesn’t complete all the basic tasks and never have time to strategise and study your site.

A sweet spot to aim for is a boutique agency of 8+ people.

Notable Clients

It’s not just about name-dropping here, but has the agency helped other businesses in Brisbane? Knowing the Brisbane market, understanding the surrounding geographical space, socio economic impact on different areas all play a role in making a SEO campaign successful.

Hourly Rate

The hourly rate more or less determines the amount of work you’ll receive as part of your campaign.

Here’s a quick comparison of the average salaries of SEO’s in Brisbane:

The average salary of a senior SEO specialist in Brisbane is $93,901.

The average salary of a content strategist in Brisbane is $93,633.

The average salary of a web developer in Brisbane is $91,360.

To get a positive result from your SEO, you need all 3 of these specialisations working on your campaign.

Anything under $150+GST and you’re not likely to get all 3.

Customer Support

This one is simple.

Does the company offer phone support?

Brisbane is one of Australia’s bigger cities.

Meaning more than likely, you can’t just drop into the agency's office if you live on the south side of Brisbane and the agency is located in the CBD or somewhere on the north side.

So it’s really important to test, when you pick up the phone during office hours and ring the company's number, do you get someone answering the phone?

And this one will top it all… do you get to speak to the SEO strategist working on your campaign?

If the answer is yes to all the above the agency provides great customer support.

Naomi Twyford

Our company has been using Websites That Sell SEO Brisbane and have been dealing with David and the team for just over 6 months, prior to this we were stuck in a rut with no clear path for our websites and SEO. We engaged Dave to take over all of this for us (as we are a high functioning business with very little time .....isn't everyone!) Davids team listened to how we work and the pace we work at and adapted themselves to suit our high pace. Davids follow up is incredible, (he kept bugging us to get raw materials) he turns around our jobs efficiently and the team easily adjust when we need to switch priority jobs on them at extremely short notice....the last unique feature about the team is that they also have a marketing background and brain, so Dave has great marketing advice we he knows I have missed an aspect which I shouldn't have...he thinks of our best interests and doesn't just do....Naomi Twyford - Real Estate Coach/Glenn Twiddle Training/QREAS/Be Phenomenal

John Donohue

We've engaged Sonder for developing a new website but more recently to get us unstuck when our company emails stopped working and we couldn't get any help from the email host!! Only through Sonder's intervention did our emails come back online which we were very grateful for.

Subsequently Sonder are now hosting our website and, via a new 3rd party, looking after our email.

Always a pleasure dealing with Tom & the Sonder team. They are very responsive which was not the case with our long term email host.

Scott Nicholas

Our company, Arden, commissioned Sonder for works on the construction of a new corporate website. The team were super helpful and great to work with, they have a brilliant dynamic. We would recommend them to anyone. Ask for Tom, tell them the stair gurus at Arden sent ya :)
