Can Low Cost SEO Firms Service High Cost Client Bases?

Feb 16, 2011 • 8:37 am | comments (13) by twitter Google+ | Filed Under SEM / SEO Companies

A Search Engine Watch Forums thread has a German based SEO individual asking if it is possible to move your SEO operation to a low cost country (he names Thailand) while continuing to service customers based in high cost countries?

He wants to know if you can run an SEO company in Thailand and service clients in Germany, the UK or the United States?

I personally know many companies that do so - they can offer their services at the same high prices, enjoy lower cost of labor and still acquire some high end clients in high cost locations. I also suspect many of those companies have "offices" in the high cost locations as well, but keep most of their operations in the low cost locations.

So the question below is, can you have all your operations (sales, marketing, operations, technical, etc) in a low cost country and still service high cost country clients?

Take my poll below:

There are lots of SEO techniques out there but really none of them have any validity unless they have good content to work with. Basically, keep your site updated with compelling content and then start thinking about SEO. You want to keep your site as legitimate as possible as engines like Google can blacklist you so thinking that there are magic tricks out there to improve your rankings is false. Start with orginal, compelling content then once amassed, start thinking about techniques that can ASSIST in improving rankings.

Thanks for the humorous but useful post. Business search engine optimization is the best for website, because the competition is very high today better if you want to display your company name or any other keyword search engine which is a SEO company not just a web design company. seo firm

maybe it is possible to relocate your SEO operation into a low cost country while continuing to provide service to costumer based in high cost country. What matters most there is you will give your clients a good quality service.

Cost is very important factor in SEO industry. In UK, US, Australia and other developed countries, SEO services are available at very high rates. Other smaller or less developed countries have SEO companies who are providing such services at very low rates. It is bit hard for high cost SEO firms to deal with low cost countries.

Very interesting thread I have been working in Thailand selling SEO and managing campaigns for the last 8 years but not to the Thai market, our clients are from the UK and Australia mainly. However I have recently joined a company working in Chiang Mai and I have set up a brand called Three Fat Fish to see if we can sell any web design and SEO services to the business in Thailand, its a bit of an experiment but I am interested to see what happens.
