Just got off the phone with a web design company who was looking for my help with SEO.

I said great I will need full admin access to each site you want me to optimize.

No can do“, they said, “We don’t grant access to anyone beyond our company“. So I say, “not even your clients?

They reply, “especially our clients

Me: But it’s their website.
Them: Yes, but we don’t want them screwing it up.
Me: So you basically build them something they have zero access to, can’t make changes without calling you and are forced to pay you month after month after month for an asset they really don’t own.
Them: Oh, they own it.
Me: No, they basically rent it.
Them: So you going to help us with SEO
Me: Well I need direct access.
Them: Can’t you just tell us what needs fixed, where to fix it and my team can do the actual fixing?
Me: Sure, if you want to spend twice the amount of money for my services, or grant me access and let me just work my magic.
Them: Like I said, we don’t grant access beyond our own company.
Me: Think of me as an extension of your company looking out for the best interest of your clients online reputation
Them: Nope
Me: Why did you call me?
Them: We heard you’re the best at SEO
Me: Well if you want my service then I need full access, if not find another SEO guy.
Them: Okay we will let you know
