What is SEO?

Search engine optimization (SEO) refers to the process of guiding users to a specific website. Typically, this happens through ads, engagement on social media and search engine results. Brands must demonstrate authority in their field before search engines begin directing website traffic to their URL. Effective SEO ensures that your website’s content is optimized so that it ends up at the top of those search results.

Will I have a dedicated account representative?

Yes! When you start working with Eminent, we will partner you with a dedicated account manager. This professional will prepare your strategy, place your order, work with billing, assign your order for fulfillment, answer questions and deliver your monthly reports. You will have direct access to your account manager, but you can also speak with another member of our staff if your personal representative is not available.

Does updating social media help SEO?

It does. Social indicators go a long way toward helping websites to rank well in search engine results They help Google and the other search engines to recognize your website, brand and content as authoritative and helpful. Likewise, a large number of social media users talking about your business signals to Google that you are newsworthy and deserve to be listed higher up in the rankings. Because of this we integrate social in many of our organic marketing campaign recommendations.

Do you make websites too?

We do. We’ve have built thousands of websites and can help you at every step of the process. From branding and design to content and development, we can develop a site from scratch or update your existing web presence. Remember, you’ll find more leads and earn more sales when your website is attractive, interactive and eye-catching. On the other hand, an outdated website makes it nearly impossible to sell products, even items that most consumers want to purchase.

Do you write blog posts?

Of course. Content plays a major role in the success of digital marketing. Google and the other search engines prefer to rank sites that have up-to-date information on the subjects their users are searching about. Blogging allows your website to consistently post information about recent and trending topics without making changes to the website’s landing pages. Users are also more likely to revisit a site in the future if they are drawn in by high-quality, regularly updated content.

What is your reporting like?

Our monthly reporting process keeps our clients updated about how much progress is made each month. We also track and report on key performance indicators to ensure that we’re delivering on our promises. We believe the only way we can be successful is to work well with our clients through open communication. That’s why ethical, transparent reporting is a cornerstone of our entire business.

What is your minimum term?

All of our work is paid for up front, by phase (generally a month) and renews each month thereafter. We are a results-based firm and we encourage clients to base their marketing decisions off of their monthly results. If a client wishes to cancel, they can simply do so prior to the start of their next billing date (though we prefer 30 days’ notice).

Do you do reputation management?

Many clients don’t even realize they’re brand is getting negative attention until they see their sales begin to decline. We are reputation management experts with a passion for helping our clients redefine themselves online. Following an audit of your brand’s presence online, we develop a custom reputation management campaign to combat the poor feedback your brand has received.

What is the difference between a reseller and a referral partner?

We offer two partnership opportunities: reseller and referral. A reseller works with a client directly, managing their account while outsourcing some or all of the client’s fulfillment to us. They also take in a monthly residual. A referral partner will simply refer business over to us (in exchange for a one-time fee) without continuing to manage the client.
