I am just wondering if should I really hire a professional to do my SEO or can I do it myself? I am thinking not to go over budget for this.
Can a Youtube tutorial be good enough to create my SEO?

I think it only depends in your schedule, if you think you cannot do it a alone for some reasons then you should hire a professional to do your SEO. But, hiring a SEO means another expense at your side. If you think you can make profit out of it then be it, But if you think can manage it alone then much better because you will not anymore going to pay someone just for doing your tasks. But the decision is still in your hands. YouTube tutorial can give you also much information regarding creating a SEO, I highly recommend that site for you to learn more about it.

The decision will always fall unto you. It would really vary unto your situation, but I suggest hiring a SEO SP is recommended. But considering your budget, going cheap is not that bad, but it involves time and patience, unless you find to get a hang out of it. Then I suggest you try, you will less likely have nothing to lose after all. Having the experience is worth it.

Yes, as even I would definitely suggest that instead of hiring for SEO you yourself can easily handle both On Page and Off Page SEO techniques and Youtube as well as there are many online free tutorials to get complete knowledge about SEO.

That's really only a decision that you can make. If you have the time to do it yourself and think that you have enough knowledge to do it successfully, it's definitely worth saving the money.

If you do end up deciding to hire someone to do it for you, make sure you are diligent with your research of the person/company and are confident that they are legit. Some people claim to be experts but can often end up doing more harm than good for your website.

If you dont know much about SEO then its probably a good idea. As you've mentioned if you want to do your own SEO then do plenty of research on sites such as Youtube and they is tonnes of blogs out there to help you further!

Dont expect it to work overnight though as it takes time and they is a lot of factors including competition, the keywords you are choosing and domain age.

If you have time to burn down learning a new and valuable skill, then proceed into learning it on your own. However, if you have more things to attend to, than focusing on learning how to do your own SEO, then it is reasonable to hire someone. But whatever it is you need, only your personal time, money and needs shall determine if it's reasonable and ideal for you to hire someone else.

It depends on the amount of free time you have to fit it in and what you value your time at. A professional would cost you financially but would get it done quicker.

If you don't have much budget you can still do it yourself because there is so many online tutorials on SEO strategies that are easy to understand and applicable. Spending money on a hired person will cause you extra expenses and don't have a earning guarantee and will become your loss if your work will not succeed in the future. Much better to do it by yourself not only to save money but also to learn and gain more knowledge about what you are doing.

Of course yes. True SEO experts have in-depth knowledge of SEO policies or rules to rank your website #top in search engines like Google, Bing, etc and this will not only increase the viewers on your website but also good results in short timespan. :)

You can learn some basic skills from YouTube but it really depends on how successful you want your website to be and how much time you want to dedicate to learning a new skill. Will you save money and time by learning SEO? Or will your time be better spent elsewhere and leaving the SEO to a professional?

If your site is making you money and a better position in SERP's (Search Engine Results Page) will bring in more revenue then hiring a professional should be a consideration.

Carry out due-diligence and research the individual or agency prior to engaging them.

I will advice you do your SEO yourself, so you will be sure that you are meeting up with google standard. Using someone else to do your website seo can be risky because the person may use Blackhat method which may cause harm to your site.

Not everyone has the time to research and implement search engine strategies, so sometimes it is best to hire an expert. The issue with that is there's little way to know upfront who the real experts are. Hiring the wrong firm or consultant could make things much worse for you.
