Should I use an SEO agency vs. an in-house team?
There are benefits to both approaches, but we think there are some clear advantages to working with an agency over going the in-house route. Here’s a look at some of the key reasons why:
1. More experience & expertise
When you work with an agency, you’re tapping into a team of experts who have extensive experience in the SEO space. They know what works and what doesn’t, and they can help you avoid common pitfalls.
2. Increased flexibility
An agency has the ability to be far more flexible than an in-house team. If you need to scale up or down your SEO efforts quickly, an agency can make that happen.
An agency has the ability to be nimble and adjust your strategy on the fly if needed. If something isn’t working or a new opportunity arises, they can quickly pivot and take advantage of it. This is much harder to do when you have an in-house team that is locked into a specific way of doing things.
3. Less time & money
It takes time and money to build out a strong in-house SEO team. You need to recruit, train, and retain top talent, which can be costly. Working with an agency can help you save both time and money.
At the end of the day, it’s up to you to decide what’s best for your business. But if you’re looking for our opinion, we think partnering with an agency is the way to go.

How long does it take to improve SEO?
Due to competition and other factors, SEO outcomes are not immediate and tend to grow gradually over time. Each ranking page will vary, so there is no definite timeline for when you’ll see results. It can take anywhere between 1-6 months for SEO to be in full swing. The important thing is to be consistent with a long-term SEO strategy and to monitor your results with several metrics. These metrics will include observation and data collection for search rankings, organic traffic, organic leads, website bounce rates, session durations, and so on.
