ii. SEO & Content Marketing Service Terms
Acceptance of Service Terms
By agreeing to work with Content Champion you are acknowledging acceptance of these terms and conditions.
Exclusion From Search Engines, Directories & Social Media Sites
We provide proven, best practice SEO and content marketing advice and services, based on years of relevant experience.
Unlike many other SEO and content marketing companies, we pride ourselves on our professionalism, transparency and successful track record. However, we are at the mercy of the third party terms and conditions of the search engines, directories and social media sites we use – and cannot be held responsible for your website being excluded from them.
Limitation of Liability
Specific SEO Results
Equally, due to these external factors that are outside of our control, we cannot guarantee any specific set of results from the SEO or content marketing work we carry out on your behalf.
Link Building Liability
Backlinks are still the major way Google and other search engines decide how popular any given website is. As a result – authoritative, relevant backlinks have an important role to play in how high the search engines choose to rank the pages of your website.
Within this context, paying to build backlinks is strictly speaking against Google’s terms of service. Although all our link partners are contacted using organic outreach and our links are as ethical and white hat as possible – the very act of paying an agency to build backlinks for you does carry some level of risk, (as does the way the Google algorithm views and treats those links both now and in future). As a result, in using our backlink building services you are acknowledging this level of risk and have still chosen to proceed.
As above, we cannot be held responsible for any loss of organic search engine rankings and/or loss of revenue suffered as a result of our link building work.
Server, Website & Hosting Maintenance
In the specific instance of our SEO and blogging services, it is the client’s responsibility to maintain and update their server/website/blogging platform installation (eg WordPress), to avoid any potential security issues.
We cannot be held responsible for any incidents of malicious hacking and/or data loss that occurs if the client does not keep their server/website/blogging platform properly updated and backed up.
Content Writing Revisions
Monthly blogging contracts are priced based on word count and number of blog posts. Customers will be expected to make payment in full and complete a content briefing form before our writers start work on any project.
As part of the price charged, customers will be entitled to two rounds of revisions within the scope of the existing brief.
Customers have 5 working days in which to request changes before their project is marked as ‘signed off’ in our workflow.
Completion of Revisions
We will complete any requested content changes within 7 working days, at which point the project in question will then be marked as ‘signed off’ in our workflow.
In the case of our monthly SEO services – contracts usually start for a duration of 6 months then run on a monthly rolling basis. Monthly blogging services, social media management and social media growth packages usually run on a monthly rolling basis.
We will only start work on your order once full payment has been made and the client briefing and/or consent form has been submitted (where necessary). On this basis, once payment has been made and the associated service provided – either side can cancel this contract with 30 days notice by informing the other party in writing or by email.
We will charge a debt recovery fee and interest for all late payments.
Coaching & Consulting Packages
Consultation calls must be paid for in full beforehand, so we can prepare for each call. Your consultation call can be cancelled or rearranged up to 24 hours in advance, otherwise 50% payment will be taken to cover the cost of our preparation time.
With the exception of consultation calls (see above), as you are investing in a process that incurs hard costs from our side, once you place an order and pay in full we will instruct our team to start work on your project. We cannot therefore give any refunds once this process has started.
