What's the benefit of hiring an SEO-only agency?

There are many benefits to choosing an SEO-only agency to drive the best and most efficient results from organic search. Here's a helpful comparison between Momentic, full-service marketing agencies, and internal SEO staff.

The size of your SEO team matters

Why? SEO is complex, and you need a team comprised of specialists within each SEO discipline.

Momentic
(SEO agency)

5+ senior-level SEOs

At Momentic, you'll have at minimum 2 people who work on your account day-to-day. Every month we come together as a full team to strategize and analyze strategies and tactics.

Full-service
marketing agency

1 (maybe 2)

Most full-service marketing agencies have clients siloed into a single SEO manager. Sometimes they are paired with an account manager or SEO intern to help with execution.

Hire an internal
SEO specialist

1

Having an internal SEO specialist will silo efforts similar to full-service marketing agencies.

Do SEO 
yourself

0

When you do SEO yourself, you don't have a team to back you up and help you achieve your goals.

Average yearly cost for SEO
(benefits & project management included)

Momentic
(SEO agency)

$36,000

Most Momentic clients spend between
$36,000 and $60,000 per year on SEO.

Full-service
marketing agency

$60,000 - $90,000

Most full-service marketing agencies mark up SEO costs to A) provide cushion for other channels, and B) cover the costs of account managers and project managers.

If you pay less than this, then we can promise you that you're not getting adequate value.

Hire an internal
SEO specialist

$68,000

The going rate for an SEO specialist is $55,000 per year. If you add 25% for added employee costs (like benefits, equipment, training, etc.), the minimum you'll spend on hiring an internal resource is $68,000 per year.

Do SEO 
yourself

$3,000

You'll probably spend money on an SEO tool or two. But how much money will you be losing by not being able to spend your money elsewhere?

How much of your investment is spent on SEO

Momentic
(SEO agency)

100%

Everything we bill you
is spent on SEO tasks

Full service
marketing agency

75%

Most full-service marketing agencies add a 25% markup to account for internal costs of managing clients. Momentic doesn't do that.

Hire an internal
SEO specialist

65%

Between one-off non-SEO tasks, internal meetings, and training, you shouldn't expect to get more than 65% efficiency from internal SEO staff.

Do SEO 
yourself

10%

This number is sort of made up, but we can't think of a scenario where you have the capacity to spend more than 10% of your working time on SEO tasks.

Adjusting SEO priorities

Is it possible to shift SEO strategy and tactics quickly and easily?

Momentic
(SEO agency)

Yes! We plan for
this to happen.

Full service
marketing agency

No. You'll have to go through multiple levels of the team in order to shift focus, % of spend, and scope.

Hire an internal
SEO specialist

Yes, though without additional team support, extra time will have to be spent on learning and research.

Do SEO 
yourself

Yes, though you'll spend a lot of time before you know you need to shift your focus.

Is your project scope flexible?

Momentic
(SEO agency)

Yes—this is a major
value-add we build in.

Full service
marketing agency

Typically not flexible due to large overhead costs.

Hire an internal SEO specialist

Yes, but limited to one skillset.

Do SEO 
yourself

Yes, but limited to what you know.

How much time will you spend each month on SEO?

Momentic
(SEO agency)

Expect 2 to 3 hours per month.
We handle the rest.

Full service
marketing agency

Expect to spend 2 to 3 hours per month with your full service agency on SEO-related items.

Hire an internal
SEO specialist

Expect to spend at least 16 hours per month on management for an internal SEO employee.

Do SEO 
yourself

Expect to spend between 60 and 120 hours per month on learning, executing, and analyzing SEO tactics.
