I'm considering hiring an SEO expert. When I survey my leads they currently aren't finding me through google searches. Mostly they're finding out about our service through word of mouth, social media etc. The question I have though is how can I estimate the effect that SEO would have on generating leads so that I can reasonably predict what ROI I can expect?
