Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some of our most frequently answered SEO questions in South Africa. Feel free to contact us to speak to a human Search Engine Optimisation consultant.

Do you work with clients anywhere in South Africa?

Yes! We work with clients all over South Africa and can communicate and collaborate through email, phone calls, and virtual meetings. Be it you are in Cape Town, Johannesburg, Gauteng, Pretoria, Durban, Mbombela, Polokwane, or anywhere in South Africa, we can help you. Please contact us to discuss your SEO marketing campaign.

How much do SEO services cost in South Africa?

To answer this question our SEO team would need to know more information about your business. We can tell you one thing though, from our years of analysing thousands of SEO campaigns, the biggest reason why most campaigns fail (possibly yours in the past too), is that the SEO agency fails to properly assess the amount of work required to get you a great result and ROI.

That being said, our SEO packages start from R2700 per month with a month-to-month contract.

Are there any guarantees for your SEO services?

Know that no one can guarantee you to rank #1 on Google.

While many SEO companies guarantee a number-one ranking, Google ultimately makes that decision, and no SEO company has a special relationship with Google. Again, the relationship between a guarantee for top rankings and shady SEO companies is strong enough that Google recommends running away.

Our guarantee is that nobody will work harder to get you the rankings you deserve than our SEO company.

How do we get started working with Preferred Marketers?

We know that you’re busy running your business, so our SEO team has made getting started as easy as possible.

  1. Contact us for a free consultation. CLICK HERE
  2. We’ll have a quick chat over the phone or virtual meeting, discuss your SEO marketing investment, strategy, and way forward.
How long does SEO take to start showing results in South Africa?

It depends greatly on where you are today, what SEO has been done before, and what your competition levels are like.

As a general rule of thumb, for good competitive local keywords with good monthly traffic, you’re looking at 6-12 months to get good first page rankings on Google.

During that time your leads and traffic will increase gradually and regularly, but the big wins are once you hit the top half of the first page.

We’ve done SEO before and it hasn’t worked, why are you different?

If SEO hasn’t worked then one of four things has occurred:

  1. You’ve been ripped off by a scammer – Sadly there are a lot of scammers in this SEO industry, and if this has happened to you, we’re truly sorry – stopping these people is the reason our team is so passionate about Search Engine Optimization.
  2. You were working with a website designer, developer, or marketing agency –  SEO is a lot like brain surgery. It’s a very detailed, specific skillset that very few people truly possess. A lot of website design, marketing, or graphic design companies offer ‘SEO’ as a service, however they are not experienced in the craft. They are good at many things, but you don’t want your logo designer doing your SEO.
  3. Your SEO company didn’t know what they were doing – This is much more common than you would think. You see, lots of people start ‘SEO’ companies after watching a few YouTube videos, or buying a R200 e-Book. They think that they can learn along the way, and sadly, they convince many business owners that they know what they are doing when they truly have no clue. SEO, is a skill set that takes decades to master and hiring a newbie disguised as a guru will leave you disappointed in your rankings.
  4. Your company didn’t do enough to beat tough competition – Your campaign wasn’t aggressive enough, or have enough effort and resources required to beat out tough competition. As the saying goes, “If you think a professional is expensive, wait until you work with an amateur”.

Our SEO specialists can generally pinpoint with sniper like precision why your past campaign hasn’t worked in minutes. Our SEO team can look at all of your website statistics and compare them directly with your competitors.  Let us show you why your SEO efforts in the past haven’t worked.
