    One is a glass installation company for homes and small business. The other is a vitamin store which we just opened up about a month ago. For the vitamin store we sell locally and are starting to sell online. Both businesses drastically need help with their SEO. I have been looking through the different service providers. I am thinking this is the route I want to go. I feel that paying someone to help would outweigh the stress of learning how to do it correctly. Thank you for the reply!

    You want more than just SEO, you want some public relations and social media to be a part of the mix of both stores, especially the new one to get you off on the right foot.

    SEO for sure but don't leave those other aspects out of your online media presence.

    I think you are making the right decision, if you want to start getting results, because there is a lot to learn before stepping into SEO and i wouldn't recommend testing it on your branded websites.
    The thing is, even when buying services you need to be aware that there are risks, therefore instead of buying different services i would recommend you to stick with 1 specialist that will handle the SEO for your company, do not be fooled by "$47 to google's first page" services.
    Good luck :)

    OK this makes sense. Are there SEO packages that can provide the public relations and social media aspect? Or is that something we need to do our self. I apologize for the newbie question. Thank you for the reply!

    That is exactly how I feel. I rather not waste time trying to figure things out on our branded websites. I do want to learn SEO just not with our current sites. Thank you for the heads up. Are most of the SEO services (Packages) trustworthy on BHW? I know you get what you pay for, I just want to get the right service the first time around.
