Ecommerce, SEO practises and ease of use are words not commonly heard together in the same sentence, except for a rather bitter and profanity ridden tirade unleashed by a long suffering ecommerce website owner who has finally reached breaking point with them. In short, ecommerce and SEO have not been items that have combined terribly well in the past, and so this spawned a whole niche of coders and experts who did not have skill…but rather, the patience to deal with the issues. Ouch!
Then Magento sauntered into our lives, tapped us on the collective shoulder and gently whispered:
“Want an easier solution?”
And boy, did it live up to the hype.
Touted as the most user-friendly, not to mention scalable of the ecommerce software packages available on the internet, Magento has allowed for all of the tedious issues of the past be a (thankfully) distant memory. Magento SEO is so easy that with a weekend worth of hard study, an ecommerce website owner can quickly come to grips with the basic requirements necessary to get things up and running.
However, like anything else in life, you only get out what you are prepared to invest. In other words, whilst it is pretty straightforward to get a rudimentary grasp of the fundamentals associated with Magento SEO, if you want to be able to harness the awesome power of it then you will really need to get to grips with the more complex topics. That weekend worth of study I just mentioned earlier? Yeah…about that. If you want the more advanced functions then you have two choices:
- Spend time and attempt to tackle the steep learning curve associated with Magento SEO.
- Hire a freelancer to do the work for you.
- Hire us at zaheermalik.com
The problem with 1) is that in the business world, time is money. Having to huge chunks of your day poring over textbooks and e-books is simply not feasible because then you will be distancing yourself from the business, and relying more heavily on your staff. Micromanaging is all very well, so long as you have the mind for it.
2) is another option, however there is simply no guarantee that they will perform as well as they claim, or in the timeframe you need. They may “fall off the grid” and be totally unavailable to reach (in our experience, an all too common occurrence with freelancers). With deadlines looming, clients wanting to know when they are going to get their orders, and your staff grumbling about not being paid, you really cannot afford to bet the long term safety and viability of your business simply on a roll of the dice.
Here at ZaheerMalik we KNOW what we are doing, and we adopt a holistic approach to every project that comes our way. Most freelancers will think in one mode, concentrating solely on getting the project finished as quickly as possible so they can clear their accounts and move onto the next client. Extras, technical support, help after the work has been paid for? Forget it.
When you contract us to do the dirty work for you, we take the time to assess the problem, identify just exactly you require and then seek to ensure that we actually explain what we plan to do, and perhaps more crucially, WHY we are going to do it. We won’t leave you hanging, nor will we hit you with surprise expenses. By analysing the problem and developing the strategy upfront we keep overheads down. This means that we can make a tidy profit and still charge you the most competitive price available on the market.
Maybe we are coming across a little too strongly, a little too self-assured and confident of our abilities. However, why shouldn’t we be? With glowing testimonials from our clients, and a deluge of thank you emails for all of our hard work, we have plenty to feel smug about. We know we can deliver an expert, professional service and ensure that any problems are nipped in the bud right away. With years of SEO experience, in just about every facet of the industry imaginable, rest assured, there is not a problem out there we cannot nor will to be able to tackle head on.
So put that Magento SEO textbook away, and let the big boys handle all your needs.
