If a company is offering a 90 day guarantee on their SEO services they really aught to know what it is they are guaranteeing, don’t you think? I got a call from verifiedbusinesslistings.com and it took me a half hour of grilling a sales rep and her manager to get an answer to the simple question of what exactly it is they are guaranteeing. It boiled down to this, “Market Exposure.” “How much? What does that mean? How many keywords?” I had to repeatedly ask, and I do mean repeatedly.
The usual answer, “We don’t have control over these things so can’t predict.”
“OK, I understand that, so what ARE you guaranteeing?”
Well, after going around and around I think we both agreed they could guarantee my site on Google Page 1 for at least 2 keywords.
Whew! I was exhausted.
What Does It Take to Get an Answer From Verified Business Listings?
I recently ran across an old email from Verified Business Listings so thought I’d give it another try and see if they could be more forthcoming with their guarantee and their SEO pricing. I emailed asking, “How does your guarantee work?” to which I got this response:
We offer a 90 day guarantee with all our gold and higher packages. This will give you the guarantee that with 90 days we will have rankings of your keywords and cities or money back.
How much is a gold package, how much is the setup fee, how many keywords are guaranteed, and does that include keywords that have the name of my business or are they the most searched-for keywords?
Gold packages start at 299 and up depending on how many keywords and cities the price goes up. The guarantee is to just have from 1 or more front page rankings. Keywords for rankings would be like Garage Door Repair Temecula or Garage Door Temecula etc..
The setup fee normally ranges depending on the start up and the size of the campaign. If you would like i can set some time a side tomorrow to go over our program and tools and prices with you and get more details of your company to give you more of a real price range. Every account is different due to keyword and area.
