What was the scope of their involvement?
Our previous website was outdated, so Measurable SEO developed a new one that is built on WordPress.
What is the team dynamic?
I usually work with Chuck [Founder and CEO, Measurable SEO]. We went with the highest plan he has to get the most services. There were people writing things for us and doing SEO-related tasks. Later we dialed back the number of services that we get from them. Everyone was very pleasant to deal with and likable. I’ve never met them in person, but our electronic and phone interactions were all good.
How did you come to work with Measurable SEO?
We were desperate because we disappeared from the Internet after we ranked well for a number of years. I ran into some of Chuck’s online writings while I was doing research on our issue. I figured if this guy could get us out of that, he must know what he’s doing, and I decided to contact him. Chuck and his group stepped in and they were able to fix things. It wasn’t immediate, but within a few months, we surfaced again. At that point, we hired him to do our SEO work and we’ve been doing pretty well ever since.
How much have you invested with them?
We spent a couple thousand on the website. I remember thinking it was quite reasonable. When we discussed the concept, I remember bracing for how much it was going to be and being pleasantly surprised that it was much more reasonable than I anticipated.
We spent a few thousand dollars for the cleanup. He has four monthly rate options for SEO: $1,000, $750, $500, and $250. In the beginning, we spent $1,000 per month, and then when things were going well, we went to $500 per month. We dialed back even more to $250 later.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in July 2014 and the work is ongoing.
