Nearly every SEO and online marketer I ve talked to at conferences this year has mentioned the problems they ve had with setting client expectations.
It seems like clients or bosses want bigger, more amazing results — and they want them faster than ever before.
And since there s no way to definitively answer those questions, potential clients sometimes balk or for in-house people, bosses give you that look when we tell them, It depends.
People assume that there s a set task list, and if you complete those tasks, a site will magically jump to the top of search results in Google.
I ve shared a few tricks in this vein before — both the pizza delivery and simple math explanations are a huge help — but they don t address the disconnect in client expectations.
