This may be fine if you are in a low competition ranking area. It is not fine if you you are competing against several large companies. You can be sure that they will have back links from several other websites.
The safest way to get back links is by writing great content. The better you are the more likely that other websites will link to yours as an authority on the subject.
How do you get people to recognize how good you are? Social media is the starting point!

We also offer blogging services where we work with your business people to produce articles for you. We optimize the article and ensure that it is linked correctly.
By publishing on social media you are also creating back links from those platforms that will help your rankings.
Many companies are a bit shy about asking their suppliers and purchasers for links from their websites. We are happy to approach them for you. We will also ask for testimonials on your behalf.
