Personally, building links to your website can be tasking and time-consuming. Moreover, there’s barely any guarantee you’ll get some good results with in-house efforts. So, instead of peaking here and there with amateur link building ideas, you should get an experienced agency who knows what they are doing. But choosing the right agency for SaaS link building is easier said than done. You could spend tens of thousands switching from one agency to another without tangible results. That’s why I reviewed some of the best SaaS link building agencies you can get based on their services, pricing, approach, strong points or pros, and cons.
Digital Gratified tops my list because I’ve personally interacted with the team over a long period. And if you’re looking for a SaaS link building agency that considers quantity and quality when building links for your website, here’s one. First off, Digital Gratified audits your website and competitor backlinks gap analysis. The report gives them a good understanding of your website’s strength and footing on the internet. Then they either create quality and relevant blog posts for your website to boost your SEO score.
Once your SEO score has leaped a few steps up, they start building links to your pages with guest posting, niche edits, outreach to publications, and many other steps. This feeds your website with quality juice links and ensures your pages gain good traction to compete or dominate your competitors.
Say you already have good content or SEO and aim to build only links. Digital Gratified ensures you get quality and relevant links with DR as high as 70 at an extremely – and sometimes underpriced value. You will probably never see any other link building agency that can help you build links from domains Hubspot, Envato, Namecheap, etc., at low costs.
Digital Gratified has a flexible pricing model and a calculator to determine costs based on your needs. The link building cost calculator estimates your total budget, desired number of links, and duration.
For instance, if you build five quality links with a DR of 70+, the calculator costs $900, equating to $180 per link. That’s incomparably affordable.
Looking for a combination of quality, quantity, and quick turnaround? That’s Digital Gratified. From previous reviews, most Digital Gratified clients get results within a month. Quick delivery is especially important for brands that can’t afford to wait for months before their website ranks for relevant keywords.
They don’t source links from source-reporter channels like HARO. It’s quite understandable. After all, most of the links from this approach are usually low in domain rating and take a lot of time to earn.
Outreach Monks is a close-follow of Digital Gratified and packs quite some punch as a link building agency. They are made up of a team with goal-oriented approaches and specialize in building relevant links for SaaS businesses.
Some of the past brands that OutreachMonks has worked with include Opportunus, Sephora, Fabletics, Represent, and Black4App. And they’ve gotten links from sites like Bigcommerce and Zendesk.
OutreachMonks have five plans – Lite, Intermediate, Advanced, Expert, and Dominate. The Lite plan is $2,299 per month and covers 4x links only. The intermediate plan is $3,699 for 6x links, and the advanced plan at $4,999 for 8x links monthly. The expert plan costs $6,999 for 10x links, and dominate is $9,999 for 14x links.
Most of the links have a DR of at least 60. Moreover, depending on your chosen plan, it can get as high as 95. Additionally, clients can pre-approve backlinks and the site they are coming from. So if you’re not a fan of the Target website, you can kick it off the list.
Too expensive, especially for new startups and SMEs. You must also upgrade your plan if you want links from websites with higher DR.
The HOTH is another link building agency you might want to try out. And unlike OutreachMonks, which focuses primarily on link building, HOTH also provides other related services like managed SEO, content creation, Paid traffic, local SEO, analytics, and reputation management.
Sounds like a jack of all trades? Uhm, well yeah! However, HOTH is known for building quality white hat links with strategies like guest posting, in-content edits, and business listings in local or industry directories.
HOTH’s pricing model is not in tiers but based on the link building approach you want. Their link outreach plan via guest posting starts at $150, while link insertings inside existing content is $200+. The HOTHBoost plan costs $60 to $175, and the business listing starts from $149 to $549.
TheHOTH focuses on rarely used but vital approaches like business listing, content distribution, and syndication service. Moreover, they are well-experienced with SEO and can identify some loopholes affecting your website rank.
Their plans are nonspecific, and you might have to get on a call with the team for more clarity. Also, they are not a true, specialized SaaS link building agency despite having a large database of link sources.
uSERP is one of the leading SaaS link building agencies that has worked for top guns like Crowdstrike, Robinhood, and ActiveCampaign. They conduct a site audit and analysis before creating a content and link strategy tailored to your website.
uSERP’s goal is to increase your domain authority by creating quality backlinks opportunities through editorial mentions and long-form content distribution.
uSERP has only three link-building pricing tiers – startup, scale, and authority. And each plan except the first comes with a content plan and topic clusters. The startup combo starts at $10,000 for 9x editorial mentions, while the scale is $15,000 for 15x mentions. The authority combo is high-end and starts at $20,000.
uSERP prioritizes niche specialization and has a team of nearly 50 experts that can handle different aspects of your link building journey. This, in turn, ensures their customers get the best links.
uSERP’s services cost a fortune. Most new startups and SMEs cannot fork out $20,000 monthly to build only 22x links. And even large businesses might have to break the bank for that in the long run.
If you are looking for an agency that plays by Google’s rules like any others mentioned above and remains human-centric with its link building approach, that’s LinkDoctor. They have a team of experts who invest much effort in building extraordinary link results through blogger outreach, guest posting, and SEO efforts.
It’s safe to say LinkDoctor has no exact estimation per link. This is because their website only lists four plans – Gold, Diamond, Platinum, and Custom without including their costs. So clients must contact the support and sales team to request a quote based on needs.
LinkDoctor is well-versed in industry standards for a ranking website and values the quality of links over quantity. Moreover, they have several tens of good reviews on Trustpilot, commending their quick turnaround and reputable results.
Requesting clients to contact you before providing service cost or quote is a Big NO. That’s just an unnecessary touchpoint.
Let’s end the list with an incredible link building specialist. Linkbuilder is another result-driven link agency that generates quality links for brands through guest posting, leveraging broken links, and digital PR. According to a review from Brandon Monroe of Cellucor, “LinkBuilder took blogs with zero inbound links, gathered high-quality backlinks, and vaulted them to the top of Google search results.”
They have only three plans – Pro, Growth, and Custom. Each plan covers target page planning, anchor text optimization, and keyword analysis. The pro package provides 15x links for $5999 per month. Growth starts from $9999 for 27x links monthly, while the custom plan is up for negotiation, depending on your needs.
Linkbuilder has a good track record and utilizes broken links to create awesome link building opportunities. Also, they prioritize relationship-building with digital PR, ensuring your website receives links after the contract, though passively.
Like uSERP, their services are a bit too high, with an average of approximately $350 per link.
SaaS Link Building Agencies – The Big Choice
I’ve reviewed some of the top link building agencies you can find while listing their pricing and approaches. But that might not be enough to help you make a decision. So if you’re still in a tight corner, consider these three things – pricing, quality, and turnaround.
Among the five agencies previously discussed, Digital Gratified pricing plans are the most affordable despite providing higher quality links from sites like Hubspot and Envato to your website. As for others like uSERP and LinkBuilders, they are quite expensive, but their links are just as good as those offered by Digital Gratified.
