What’s A Fair Price For SEO Work?
I am constantly dumbfounded by the amount of money SEO firms will charge customers for a minimal amount of SEO work. It makes me wonder if there is something wrong with me.
I have seen companies quote between $700-$1200+ a month for 5-6 hours of White Hat SEO work which includes typically includes modest keyword research, analytics analysis, Google ranking analysis, content analysis and optimization, META tag work, link building and monthly reports. Sounds like a fair price, right? No it is not. It is simply outrageous.
I charge $30 per hour for the same work and I’m think I’m even better at it that the competition with years more experience and much more dedication and loyalty to my customers.
Don’t buy into these outrageous plans. $700 divided by 6 hours work is over $100 per hour.
SEO is not easy, but it is not rocket science either. There is a process and the process might be worth over $100 per hour to some big corporations who have big pockets of money to throw around, but if you are a mid-sized or small business I suggest you contact me where I will set reasonable expectations for SEO work and not charge you an arm and a leg.
I have all the tools the big firms have and can deliver the same reports, analysis and results, but I also limit the amount of clients I take on so I can dedicate myself to helping you achieve and exceed your SEO goals.
I take much pride in my skills. I do not like to be ripped-off and I don’t like ripping people off. My philosophy has always been to under promise and over-deliver. I am completely White Hat SEO so the results I deliver will stand the test of time.
