Agency Norms You Won't See Here

1. Guaranteeing Results

We bring a wealth of experience and a proven track record to the table, demonstrating our capability to deliver substantial improvements in SEO.

However, the nature of search engines means outcomes are not entirely within our control. We cannot promise guaranteed rankings or specific results, as search algorithms are complex and constantly evolving. 

Our commitment is to apply best practices, continually adapt to changes, and strive for the best possible outcomes.

2. Holding You Hostage

Understanding that SEO require patience and time to yield results, we emphasise this to our clients before getting started. Ultimately, we don’t see it as a smart investment if you’re only looking to commit to the first 1-5 months of SEO – you simply won’t achieve the results you’re likely expecting.

Despite this, we understand that business needs, budget and operations are always evolving and we value your freedom, offering flexible arrangements with a 30-day notice period for service termination. We aim to support your growth, not constrain it.

3. Doing It ALL

As specialists in our field, we focus on what we do best: SEO. Our expertise is specific, and we don’t dilute our efforts by trying to cover every digital marketing service under the sun.

This specialisation ensures that you’re getting dedicated, knowledgeable assistance designed to make a real difference in your online visibility and advertising effectiveness. We do have trusted partners to refer you to if you require any further marketing or digital marketing assistance. PLUS we also can work directly within your existing and trusted team of digital and marketing professionals.

4. Leaving You Hanging

At the heart of our approach is the development of genuine, lasting relationships with our clients.

With our specialists also playing the ‘role’ of account managers, we’re here to support you, answer your questions, and guide you through the complexities of digital marketing as you need us.

Our team is always accessible via email and willing to schedule calls to ensure you feel valued and understood every step of the way.

5. Avoiding Data

Data drives everything we do. From strategy development to ongoing management, we rely on analytics to inform our decisions and measure success.

We ensure transparency in reporting, providing you with insights into your campaigns’ performance and areas for improvement. Avoiding data, even when it is terribly oh-so bad, is not in our DNA; instead, we embrace it to drive better results, work out what’s working or not, and improve.

6. Offshoring Work

Our agency stands on the pillars of quality and integrity, which means keeping our work out of the Philippines. Offshoring can dilute control, risk security issues and compromise the quality of work.

By maintaining all tasks within our team, we ensure that every aspect of your project is handled by specialists who are deeply integrated into our business values and quality standards. This approach allows for better communication, quality control, and ultimately, more effective campaigns.

At 5 Twelve, our journey began with a vision to redefine the agency landscape. Our conversations with many business owners revealed a common frustration: the industry’s trend towards overpromising and underdelivering.

On one extreme, scam artists across the world seemed to have taken advantage of the elusive nature of search engines, the lack of qualifications needed, and the fact that most (but not all) businesses will require a strong online presence to succeed. Even our own inboxes are full of spam SEO cold outreach – and they all guarantee incredible results they can achieve for us at a low price of just $399 a month!

Somewhere in the middle though, there are a lot of agencies who have defined the above ‘norms’ to stay competitive in price and operations and, unfortunately, weren’t able to deliver on their word for some or most of their clients. Although we can’t guarantee any particular deliverable in this realm, following agency norms is a surefire way of achieving ‘churn-and-burn-hood’. 

As we understand what it’s like to be business owners ourselves, we wholeheartedly believe that every business deserves transparency, quality and honesty when engaging with any professional service.

Frequently Asked Questions

The cost of working with us varies depending on the scope of the project.

Results for 5 Twelve are primarily measured in conversions.

For SEO, we do keep track of website rankings, organic traffic, and website events such as form completions, purchases, phone clicks and email clicks and highlight the data around these in our monthly touchpoints and reporting. Again, we are at the mercy of the Google algorithm and platform, so ultimately, SEO efforts can typically take 6-8 months to see consistent, sustainable results.

We measure success by analysing various metrics such as website traffic, engagement rates, conversion rates (enquiries, calls and sales), and ROI (return on investment). By monitoring and analysing these metrics, we can continuously optimise and improve our strategies to ensure our clients achieve their consistently evolving marketing goals.

Before we commence, we’ll typically jump on 1-3 video calls to work out your goals, set your expectations, and begin strategising the campaign/s. 

We create a live dashboard with all of your data to collect in a simplified way for you to keep track of performance whenever you like.

Each month, we will send you a report with your data, notes about what the data means, a log of what we’ve been up to and plans for the coming months. We’ll also organise a work-in-progress (WIP) each month where we can catch up with a coffee in person or over Zoom, run through the report, any questions and concerns, and discuss the coming plans.

We like to work closely with our clients to develop and maintain a personalised strategy for SEO. Communication is integral, so we made sure to bundle up time to chat into our package costs. With this in mind, we have a lot of respect for our clients and their time, and we only work with clients who have the same respect for us.
