Rippoff Agencies
How to Know If You've Hired a Low Quality Agency?

Our mission here at SEO Whistleblowers is to call out the agencies that are ripping off their clients. To the side, we’ve listed 6 warning signs your marketing agency is taking advantage of your business. If you find they are guilty of low quality work, frequent account manager changes, poor internal marketing, holding your content hostage, lack of content marketing program, or required contracts, it’s probably time to blow the whistle. 

Even if you don’t have any experience with SEO or digital marketing, you can still tell if your marketing agency is producing low quality work. Many times, this shows up in the form of poorly written content and unappealing design. If you find yourself having to revise blog posts, news letters, and landing pages, it’s probably time to audit the rest of the agency’s work. 

Many SEO agencies are stuck with tactics from the dark ages. Now days, Google is looking for businesses that add value to the Internet. It will reward websites that consistently give users a reason to visit their site. If your marketing agency isn’t producing this level of quality, it’s time to blow the whistle. 

Frequent changes to the account managers and other marketing agency team members is a strong indicator of serious problems. Developing a premium level strategy that targets the correct buyer personas takes time and effort. There’s no way account managers can just jump on an account and be able to pick up where the previous employee left off. If you are paying an outfit thousands of dollars a month, it’s important there is stability. 

If your digital marketing agency has had a revolving door of new contacts, programs, and packages, it’s probably time to audit their value. 

We have found what a marketing agency is doing to market their own brand is the best way to gauge what they can do for their clients. This is an important principe to understand. If the marking outfit is unable or unwilling to do premium level work for their own brand, imagine what they can/will do for their clients. 

Below are the three things you’ll what to look at when evaluating your marketing agency. If the marketing outfit is falling short in one of these areas, it’s probably time for an audit. 

  1. Is Their Website Design Appealing?
  2. Are They Active On Social Media?
  3. Is The Blog On The Corporate Website Updated Frequently

Content marketing is the most important tactic for online success. All digital marketing agencies should have a strong blogging program that produces premium level content. It’s extremely important the posts are interesting, well-written, and informative. 

All marketing programs over 1K/month should be producing at least 4 blog posts a month. Each piece of content should be at least 500 words. Again, it’s super important each of the posts are high quality. If you are receiving less than that, maybe it’s time to blow the whistle. 

Digital marketing agencies that have a high focus on pushing their hosting service are usually extremely shady. The hosting trick is used to hook clients and make them feel like it’s impossible to get away from the marketing outfit. Many times, these kinds of companies will delete the client’s website if they what to move in a different direction. The main thing is these kinds of shady companies what to make the barrier to find a new marketing provider as high as possible. 

If your marketing agency has been playing the hosting game, there are probably other problems. If that’s the case, it’s time for a full audit. 

We are firm believers in giving businesses the freedom to choose where to invest their marketing dollars. Companies that try to stick you with a commitment that last for years and years knows their product isn’t sustainable. They have no confidence client’s will remain customers without a binding agreement.

Having a long contract also removes any urgency for the marketing agency to perform. They know there’s no way to get out of the engagement, and have no real penalty if they can’t deliver results.
