Personally I don't think SEO is something you should fully outsourced – especially for small business owners. The really good SEOs are probably too busy working for their own sites (and even if they work for you, it'd cost you an arm and leg); and the average ones probably will not have the vision and necessary skills/knowledge.
The best way to do so – as I mentioned in the comment – is to learn things yourself and take the lead in the campaign; but outsource the grunt work to smaller/cost-effective web service providers.

HTTPS as a ranking signal
If you were hit – piece of advice from someone who have been there – don't panic and rush to any conclusion… yet.
Also, I would avoid reading any SEO- and Penguin-related article and forum threads (except of the official announcement that I just shared below) for the next few days. It's just too much noise right now.
