When you’re building your agency, one of the common challenges is to be visible to clients looking for the services you offer.
There’s many channels you can use, and SEO might be the first one that comes to your mind.
When you think about it, SEO has been there for more than 20 years and is an amazing growth leverage. You can position yourself on topics your clients are looking for, win new projects, and be visible where it matters for your business.
But despite its strengths, SEO can be very challenging sometimes and it could be hard for some agencies to adapt their strategies to their SEO efforts.
In this article, we’ll see the 4 shortcomings of an SEO strategy for your agency’s visibility, and how Sortlist+ Visibility Module can be a leverage to grow your business.
Producing content day in and day out ✍️
For a SEO strategy to work, and actually bring qualitative organic traffic to your website, you will have to produce content that targets specific keywords. This takes time and requires a lot of resources:
Finding relevant keywords that are not too competitive but still related to your business, knowing that keywords clients use to find your services evolve and change overtime.
Writing content based on those keywords to match the search intent of your potential clients and appear in the Google results,
Building the backlinks (i.e. links going from a website to your website) necessary to get a domain authority high enough so Google considers you as a good source of information.
This is a long process, especially because you need to repeat it for multiple months before getting some results. On average, it generally takes around 6 months of work to start seeing some results. And that’s only if you don’t get hurt by a Google update in between.
If you were to compare it with our Sortlist+ Visibility Module, an agency that subscribes to it will automatically appear in our directories, which are already ranking on relevant keywords and browsed by potential customers.
We also take care of regularly updating our directories to match clients’ searches on Google, even if they change overtime.
The Visibility Module allows you to save time and to focus all your energy on serving your clients.
Keeping your website up to date 🛠
Aside from the content, a SEO strategy will also require you to keep your agency’s website up to date with Google’s guidelines and make it technically able to rank.
Even if you’re writing the best content, it won’t be visible to your target customers if your website is not technically optimal. See it like Formula 1: you may have the best driver, but if your car is not performing well, there’s no way you’ll win the race.

Ranking on Google is only one part of the job. You’ll still need to optimize your website in order to convert your visitors into leads, and then into loyal customers.
