Search Engine Optimization
The Search Engine Guys (TSEG), a division of Cloud 8 Sixteen, is a full-service web marketing company with offices in Austin and Chicago. We only work with clients on an exclusive basis (one business per category per market). We manage over 200 web marketing campaigns for law firms and businesses located throughout the US.
How is TSEG different from other SEO companies?
Given the unknowns, limitations, and competitive threats (not to mention scary-long time horizons) inherent to the process of SEO, the last thing anyone needs is a sales pitch obscuring these realities. We believe it is critical to our success and to the success of our clients, to only proceed when both parties have a sober understanding of what can and cannot be achieved via SEO. As a result of setting proper expectations, we have a healthy culture where success is the expectation, not the exception.
Exclusivity. We only provide SEO on an exclusive basis – one client per business category per market (either local, state or national). We avoid conflicts of interest by disclosing and discussing possible conflicts in the early stages of a conversation. Exclusivity allows true partnership to develop and eliminates compromises that occur when SEO is provided on a non-exclusive basis.
Guarantees? We offer zero promises or guarantees, other than our commitment to work our tails off with the goal of achieving dominant first-page exposure for our clients.
Staffed to deliver. Search Engine Optimization is ultra-competitive, unpredictable, and anything but a perfect science. Given this reality, SEO gurus often debate the pros and cons of strategy X versus strategy Y. On the topic of bandwidth, however, there is absolutely no debate. Without enough man-hours even the best strategies fail. SEO is labor intensive. Doers win. Talkers don’t. When SEO companies fail, it is often because they are spread too thin. We believe that one of our competitive advantages is the in-house manpower we can devote to a project. We staff our company so we have enough man-hours to execute the projects, and price each campaign with this reality in mind.
