3 Things You Should Consider Before Hiring an SEO Company in Brisbane

With 67.07% of all clicks happening for the first five organic results, it is important for any business to ensure their keywords rank on top. For this reason, more business owners are looking at Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) to put them on the top spot.

3 Things You Should Consider Before Hiring an SEO Company in Brisbane


This is very rational to do so, especially with the fact that there are close to 2.3 trillion searches that happened last year. That is before COVID 19 even entered the scene. 


So just imagine the bulk of online queries that the internet is now receiving. 


With more people stuck at home, more people are expected to do their shopping and service queries online. 


Therefore, if you don’t use SEO, it will not come as a surprise if you see your business being left behind. 


AND this is not to TRICK you. This is a FACT. Look at your online rank and see it for yourself. If you are not on the first page of GOOGLE, then you are definitely in danger.


How do you do this?


Go to www.google.com.au and start typing a keyword associated with your business. See if your business appears on the first page. 


If it doesn’t then it is best to look for an SEO Company in BRISBANE to help troubleshoot this problem for you. 


But how do you find the right one?


Here are some tips:




With everyone tightening their belts, its important to carefully evaluate the cost of your SEO package. 


How do you know if you are overspending on your SEO service?


It is best to choose an SEO company that offers a fixed price rate for the services they deliver. For this reason, you know how much you will be spending per month and decide if it can be added to your monthly expenses. 


Here at M Business and Marketing Solutions. We offer a fixed rate for all our SEO packages. Choose one that will best suit your needs. Talk to Mike




Not because a company says that they offer SEO services, you will easily trust them. You need to do a background check about the company. Some questions you need to ask includes:


– The type of industry they cater to

– Their length in the industry

– Customer reviews


Use this as your metrics in deciding if it is wise for them to be included in your shortlisted SEO companies.

Beware of P-R-O-M-I-S-E-S.


A legitimate SEO company in Brisbane understands that putting your targeted keywords on top of search engine results page (SERP) takes time. Because of this, it is very, very, very rare for them to make promises. 


How long will it take for SEO to work?


Depending on your selected keywords and competition, it normally takes 3 to 6 months. But there are many factors that go along with this. It is best to watch Mike’s SEO audit report for additional info regarding this matter. 





Lastly, take a closer look at the communication channels they offer. 


Are they easily accessible via the phone, email, chatbots, and social media? 

How often do they update their social media pages? 

Do they have a straightforward pricing and quote process?


Choose an SEO company that has a clean flow of communication. After all, you’ll be communicating with them regularly regarding your SEO campaigns.

Importance of Referral

Importance of Referral

Importance of Referral

Hi! It’s Mike here from M Business and Mike’s Marketing Minutes. Today we’re talking about referrals. Don’t miss it but also right at the end of the video I’m going to talk a little bit about an offer for you.

Let’s get in.

Hey, it’s Mike here from M Business and today, I want to talk to you about referrals. Referrals are simply the best form of advertising. These are the word of mouth and word of mouth is everything.


You know I talk to a lot of people during the week people that are not our customers. I talk to them and I say, “Where do you get most of your best customers from?” They go, oh Word of Mouth.


I built my business on “Word of Mouth” and you know a lot of us to have and we want to duplicate that, so it’s really important.


First of all, why is word of mouth or why a referral is so important?


I think the number one the reason why referrals are so important is pretty much because it creates an expectation.


You know if someone says,


“Hey, do you know anybody who is a web designer or a marketer?”


“Yeah, I’ve got someone you can use!”


There’s that expectation that the person they’re going to choose is going to be good. It’s easier to close those type of customers and often what I hear from people who are used to word of mouth type of advertising they say, 


“Oh! I tried Google. I tried Facebook but I found they’re all you know tire-kickers!”


The reason why a lot of people say that is because of word of mouth. When people come to you on a referral they’re pretty much already sold. They’re pretty much already there so that’s why referrals are so good.


That expectation when a person comes to you, this is an expectation about your services. It must be good because their friends have told you.


Number two: It increases your close ratio.




It’s a lot easier to close.


Number three: They don’t cost you anything.


I think referrals are so good because they don’t cost you anything. You don’t!


It’s cost-effective because a person’s giving it to you for free.


Number four: You get loyal customers


The customers that you get from a referral often are going to stay loyal because they’re your ideal client. Often the clients of friends, people that are similar to them are your ideal clients and so those clients are going to be exactly the same as the clients you’ve already got unless the person who gave me the referral is a pain and they’re not really your ideal client then you’re in trouble.  But you know what I’m trying to say.


So referrals are awesome. I listened to an audible just recently.


Extraordinary Referral Systems


He is amazing if you want to listen to anything or see anything on Jay Abraham. He’s Anthony Robbins mentor, so listening to Jay Abraham on referrals is amazing if the audible is alive.


Please check it out its very, very cool. I think it was in Melbourne and there’s a guy that gets up and he actually talks about how he built his actual dentist firm in Melbourne based on referrals. He actually closes the door and no one’s allowed in unless it’s a referral so that’s a classic that’s absolutely amazing. So yeah!

Get 250 AUD when your referral signs up with us


But I want to put it out there. I want to sort of put it out there. You know you’ve got a lot of business networks and all the rest of it that give incentives. If you give a referral and do certain things.


If you are one of our customers or even if you’re just watching this for the first time and you know someone who needs a website, I’m putting it out there. I’m actually going to put some dollar value to this. I will give you 250 dollars if you refer a customer to me and they put a deposit down. It’s as simple as that. I will give you 250 because referrals are so good and you are my ideal clients, so the type of people that you know are the people that I want to know.


So you know if say, for instance, you’re like me and you want more referrals put down something or something on this post to be able to say hey I’ll also do something if you can get me a referral. This is what I will get.


So yeah! Referrals,  Referrals. But look take a look at Jay Abraham. He’s an absolute legend. His audible is an amazing 93 Extraordinary Referral Systems.


That’s it. You have a great day and I’ll talk to you very soon.



What’s Your Why?

What’s Your Why?

What’s Your Why?

Hi! This week on Mike’s Marketing Minutes. I’m talking about the “why”. Why are you in business? Why do you do it?

I’m talking about W-H-Y! What is your why?


Let me give you an example. I met a lot of business people and a lot of business people are miserable. I don’t even know how they’re keeping their business. But successful business people simply just have this passion. They seem to have this enthusiasm. But most of all they have a thing called “persistence.” Now I remember starting in business years ago and man you know,


I used to door knock.

I used to door knock businesses.

I used to door knock to get sales, to get enquiries.



For me as a young guy trying to start a new business, I didn’t have the cash flow. It was the only way that I could actually do.



I’ve been attacked by two German Shepherds.

I’ve been attacked by four dogs at one point.

I had my clipboard, I was waking up and yelling at the top of my lungs. I’ve had a gun pointed at me. I have you thinking,


“Wait where were you door knocking?”




Once I went into a premise and it turned out to be an outlaw biker gang and all of a sudden all these motorbikes came roaring in and I was like oh what the hell! So but why? Why did I do it?



it’s because of the persistence. I knew the “me” and where I was. That’s what I needed to do to get the job done and you know you might be thinking today:


“I just don’t have it anymore.”

“I just I’m tired.”

“I don’t have that feeling of where my business is going and what I need and what I do.”


You know at the end of the day you’ve got to ask yourself,


“Why did you get into this business in the first place?”

“What gets you up in the morning?”


If you don’t have the answers to these questions, then you’ve got to go back. You’ve really got to go back to where it all started. You’ve got to go back and even refresh it. You know refresh, restart and renew the day.

refresh, restart and renew the day.


Look at it coming into where you are now. If you’re in business, it’s fantastic that you are in business. At this time in history, especially with what’s going on in Australia and the world at the moment, if you’re doing well in business that’s fantastic and I want to really support those people.


If you need a hand with getting to that next point or if you need a hand with that refresh we are at the end of a phone call. That’s us!


Hey! Let me know what’s your “why” today? Put it in the comments below.
