At ATKASA Digital we pride ourselves on our level of dignity and get rather hot under the collar when we hear the promise land that some other companies “claiming to be online experts” offer potential clients.

How do you know if a so called digital marketer is not the real deal?

We take a look at some of the promises that they will make upon meeting you.


They say your Google listing is about to expire

Not only is Google free, it’s not going anywhere. Even if you didn’t register your business with the search engine, you may still be listed on Google. The company makes it their business to know that you exist and to share your information.


They guarantee a No. 1 Google ranking

Google expressly warns against SEO companies guaranteeing anything, let alone a coveted No. 1 Google spot. Rankings are volatile — they fluctuate and can only be influenced, not controlled. Therefore, a ranking can’t be guaranteed.


They promise top rankings in 48 hours

Building legitimate traffic to your website is a marathon, not a sprint. If you want to generate a surge of traffic to your website or a top ranking on Google, you have to pay for it through advertising.


The price seems too good to be true

If you have two bids with one that’s super low and another that’s super high, then the odds are good that you’re negotiating with different scopes and styles of work. Ask somebody who knows the lingo to help you compare apples to apples.


They post your blogs on their site

If you’re paying somebody to blog for you and they post all the articles on their site and not yours, their website will gain any benefits of increased traffic and search engine placement, not yours.


They need to clone your website for “tracking purposes.

If any online advertising company you’re considering tells you that they never need to talk to your web design company to develop an online marketing campaign, run away quickly. Most of these companies plan on cloning your website. This is a bad deal for two reasons: The cloned site they’re creating is a site they control, not you AND Your website is rewarded for its unique content.


They say they’ll do all the work.

This is marketing code for “we are going to make up nonsense.” If your marketing company never has to talk to you about what’s going on in your business, then they have no idea what’s going on in your business. And the marketing they produce will also have nothing to do with your business. Good marketing requires interaction from all parties to ensure it’s consistent throughout all mediums and true to your values and company culture. Good marketing always requires an investment of time.

  • I am totally wowed and prepared to take the next step now.

  • Minhas críticas são plausivéis, então são questionavéis ao ponto de exercer funções cognitivas a conjuntura psico-social referente as atitudes de pensamentos inerentes as matérias publicadas em seu site. Como me dedico ao uso de meus preciosos neurônios em relatar absurdos de ordem social e financeira, ao qual o redator dessa escrita sofre, devo apenas admitir falta de uso dos conhecimetos da materia em questão.Ou não.

  • Femme, myönnän pois että Bellan alusasuasia mietitytti minua:( Alussahan hänellä oli webcamissa se punainen korsetti mutta treffeillä olikin jalassa stayupit. Järkeilin että korsettien kanssa käytetään sukkanauhaliivejä ja silloin korsetti jäi – miehen logiikkaa…

  • Most help articles on the web are inaccurate or incoherent. Not this!

  • Hi NoelWhat a generous idea to offer the book to someone else. As you know my parents are both from Abruzzo, but have lived in England for 60 years now. Although they have lived in England far longer than they ever lived in Abruzzo, they still retain the Abruzzo spirit and longing to return at least once a year. If I won this book, I would pass it on to them afterwards, as I know they would be fascinated to read more about their beloved region.Thanks so much for possibly winning the chance to read this book.All the bestJ

  • I reckon you are quite dead on with that.

  • Meiner Mutter ist mal roter Suser in die Luft gegangen. Die Küche war damals gerade frisch gestrichen….Bist wohl auch ein Nussmilchfan??LG

  • Sharp thinking! Thanks for the answer.

  • When you think about it, that’s got to be the right answer.

  • If I communicated I could thank you enough for this, I’d be lying.

  • Hey, that’s the greatest! So with ll this brain power AWHFY?

  • The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPods. It works well, but isnt as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser thats not an issue, but if youre planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPods larger screen and better browser may be important.

    Hola Marisol un abrazo grande en estos momentos de tristeza y dolor, es terrible yo también perdí hace algunos años a papi y cuesta recuperarse, sólo el tiempo ayuda.

  • Slam dunkin like Shaquille O’Neal, if he wrote informative articles.

  • Wow! This could be one particular of the most helpful blogs We have ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Fantastic. I am also a specialist in this topic so I can understand your effort.

  • Oh dear. Old mate johngkyneur has sent in 15 comments overnight and this morning, ranging from saying I have a fat arse to offering me sex, killing chickens, conspiracy theories and an all-female UN. All in caps, all filled with typos, all making no sense whatsoever. Should we take bets on how many he sends?

  • Je voulais juste te dire, pour que les aventures de Sarko gardent leur accent de vérité ^^ , qu’à ma connaissance, il n’y a pas de magasin Cora dans le Var. Ce serait bien plus réaliste avec un Intermarché.

  • She could have been “Vernal”. I know a man who was born on 3/21 and was eternally grateful that his mother did not name him Robin. She named him Farrell.

  • Acho interessante mesmo martelarem em cima disso, porque por mais que pareça ser simples, tem muita gente que ainda preenche de forma errada! eu coloco sempre meus dois nomes e meus dois sobrenomes, pra não dá confusão.

  • Nicolas en effet, tout à faît, absolument, on leur donne ça et ils veulent ça, jamais contents malgré tout ce qu’on leur donneIl serait temps qu’ils apprennent à vivre (à compter) .Enfin on espère que pour être plus que parfait son copain gauchiss le patron du fmi (tel l’armée du salut de la populace) a enfin retrouvé la cassette qu’il avait égarée et cherchée en vain dans ses tiroirs

  • Thanks for writing such an easy-to-understand article on this topic.

  • on I’m not sure exactly why but this blog is loading incredibly slow for me. Is anyone else having this issue or is it a issue on my end? I’ll check back later and see if the problem still exists.

  • Limit booze intake, primarily beer. As previously stated, it’s also advisable to address your eating plan and workout routine to be certain you get the full outcomes from the gout treatment of the selection.

  • Wowza, problem solved like it never happened.

  • That’s a sharp way of thinking about it.

  • A simple and intelligent point, well made. Thanks!
