This question pops in everyone mind whether he/she is looking for a company who can take care of their SEO project or even to those too who have companies handling various SEO projects?
Big companies charge relatively high in comparison to small business, and when it comes to choosing the company we prefer to give priority to a small company as they are charging less, but if you are bit aware of industry then you know that in small companies single person may handle your all projects or may be two. Before going in deep let’s break down small, medium, and large companies. Does their size affect SEO strategy?

Small companies have a very tight budget with a limited number of employees. They can handle two or three projects precisely, but as soon they got their next project everything gets messed up. In short, they need to change their SEO strategy. They need to set priority to projects, and there is no doubt strong client will get more preference.
Now coming to SEO strategy then small businesses prefer to spend their most of time in building online public relations, local SEO, branding, experiment with Google Adwords and optimizing for mobile.
The first goal of small business is to bring people to your store or service site, so they prefer to focus on Google Local and other third party review websites like Yelp. If they fail to build a business from AdWords campaigns, then the next step they follow is working on content strategy. Moreover, they would more focus on social media marketing and try to get links from other relevant websites.
Medium Size Company

But as they have a decent number of experienced employers they are a somehow good choice.
