What Is White Label SEO?
In today’s digital landscape, businesses strive to stay ahead of the competition by maximising their online presence. Digital marketing agencies are also continually seeking ways to hold onto existing clients and attract new ones. One solution that has emerged to address this need is White Label SEO. But what exactly is it, and how can it benefit your business? In essence, White Label search engine optimisation refers to outsourcing search engine optimisation services to a specialist provider, who then delivers these services under your brand name. This enables your company to offer comprehensive SEO solutions to your clients whilst capitalising on the expertise of a dedicated team without the need for in-house resources or extensive training.
In this blog, we’ll explore the ins and outs of White Label SEO and discuss how it can contribute to the success of your digital marketing agency in the ever-evolving digital marketplace.
What Is White Label SEO?
As mentioned above, white-label SEO is outsourcing your SEO requirements to a specialist like the team here at E2E Studios. This can be for any number of reasons, such as:
- No in-house specialist skills in SEO
- In-house team working at capacity
- One-off projects to help land a client
- Lightning the load on the in-house team
- Expanding your service offerings
White label SEO does not even have to be a whole SEO package; it can just be aspects of it that you might not want to do in-house or not have the capacity to do, such as so-called “grunt work” like blog writing or keyword research.
What Are the Benefits of White Label SEO?
We mentioned above there are many reasons why you might need to outsource your SEO services to a white-label agency, but what are the main benefits of doing so? The benefits are particular to your individual needs; however, the core benefits can include the following:
- Fill any skills gap in your team without the need to hire.
- Offer services without the added expense.
- Cost savings on software, tools and training.
- Grow your client base with ease.
- Increase profits and save costs.
Outsourcing your SEO work to a white label agency can help you to scale your business without all the added costs. SEO tools are just one example; with some SEO tools costing over £500 per month per licence, they can soon add up. Combine this with the added expense of an in-house team, and the costs soon mount up.
However, the positive benefits only apply if you hire the right white-label partner! There are many white-label agencies in the UK and abroad, but like any industry, there are good and bad ones to work with, so choosing wisely is paramount.
How Does White Label SEO Work?
Hiring a white label SEO agency should be easy, and for it to work well, the agency should work alongside you as part of your team. There are two main ways that white label can work:
- SEO Delivery: Where the SEO work is completed and reports sent to the agency for approval and sending to the client.
- Account Management: Where the white-label provider communicates directly with the client under the hirers brand.
Most clients we deal with here at E2E Studios opt for service delivery; this way, they are still part of the process and can communicate with their clients how they need to.
However you choose to work with a white label partner, the critical aspect is that it should always be a partnership between the white label and hiring agencies. We will dig deeper into how to choose a white-label partner later in this blog.
What Kind Of SEO Work Can You Outsource?
A big plus for outsourcing your SEO is that you can pick and choose what elements you want to keep in-house and which you wish to outsource. The sorts of tasks that can be white-labelled include:
- Keyword research
- Technical SEO
- On-Page SEO
- Off-Page SEO
- Content creation
- Link building
- SEO Audits
- SEO Strategy
And much more!
How to Choose Your White Label SEO Agency
Choosing a white-label partner to do your SEO can be stressful, with so many questions needing to be asked. You need to select an agency that can provide everything you need to fulfil the work and get great results for your clients, but how do you know they are a good fit? Here are some pointers to think about when deciding:
- Does the agency have good client reviews?
- Do they have any case studies on their website?
- Are they approachable and communicative?
- Are they transparent about their processes?
- Do they have any particular specialities?
Whilst reviews and case studies are an important factor in hiring a white-label partner, it is important to remember that if they work on projects for other agencies, they might not have case studies they can share. It is also critical to remember that if a website is packed with case studies that seem a little off or lack actual data, these could also be fake. The agency is hiding behind the fact that their work is white label and publishing phoney case studies -which can happen quite a lot!
Price is also a qualifying factor; if it seems too good to be true, it probably is! SEO is not cheap, be it white label or direct with the client, so always keep costs in mind.
