Is a flat rate of $2000 per month for local SEO a fair price?August 14, 2020 at 7:51 am #9472Studio_7
It really depends on the scope of service, but that’s not unreasonable at all for a decently comprehensive retainer. Do you have specifics of whats being offered?August 14, 2020 at 8:19 am #9474danderzei
Doesn’t it depend on your anticipated returns? Is it feasible that it ill increase your profits by at least $4k per month?August 14, 2020 at 8:39 am #9478jcarstenm
Definitely fair but as Studio alluded to, what is included? Are they writing you content? Are they performing outreach for links? Are they actually going into your website and resolving technical issues? Are they doing the keyword seeding, or just providing you with the keywords to seed yourself?
Big difference between the hands on vs recommendations.
If they know what they’re doing, it’s a very fair price regardless.August 14, 2020 at 9:05 am #9493F5_Studio
What about the client’s profit?August 14, 2020 at 9:24 am #9476revolutionPanda
If the SEO provides more than $2,000 of value, then yes.August 14, 2020 at 9:29 am #9496trenhard
I think you’re just making numbers upAugust 14, 2020 at 9:43 am #9492Targets4Free
As others said, if it brings more than $2,000 dollars in value to the business in the form of new attention and new customers, then yeah, it’s completely fair.August 14, 2020 at 11:43 am #9480Obio1
Yes. Just make sure you can show them proof of work.
Obviously, positive changes in rankings are nice to show — but that can take several months to see.
In the meantime, it helps to show increasing site scores, backlink generation, new content creation and high content-relevance scores. And that can easily add up to $2k per month.August 14, 2020 at 12:19 pm #9481panion
It may vary depending on the competition rate and the market (outside of US). But overall I think it’s OKAugust 14, 2020 at 1:06 pm #9482lostan
i would say 2K gets you a basic link building campaign, IF you can actually trust them to build quality links. Get yourself ahrefs or some other tool to follow progress. make sure each month you are provided with a link report. then see what happens.August 14, 2020 at 1:22 pm #9475MeetHugo
I would say that is around what most firms would charge per month for sure for local SEOAugust 14, 2020 at 1:27 pm #9483queefoworldpeace
I would avoid flat rate pay-scale unless there is a guaranteed ROI – what services do they offer? Sometimes, marketing companies will prey on business owners who don’t understand SEO and conduct basic services for pretty exuberant prices.August 14, 2020 at 1:36 pm #9491tmblast1
I would make sure you know what is being worked on each month to justify the cost. For example, I offer a flat fee that is the same for every client no matter what. That includes writing 3 blog posts, on page SEO changes, slack + skype access to me for quick questions, images to use on the site, forecasts for traffic gains, reporting, conversion reporting, and more.
If they offer vague things like “i’m building 5 links each month b/c links are good for SEO”, I would say this is not worth the money
This is just my opinion, but if you are paying someone to work on your SEO, you should clearly understand what you are paying for and what that will do for your business over timeAugust 14, 2020 at 1:50 pm #9473fuck_____________1
“SEO” is not a fixed thing. They could be writing 10 blog posts on medium and call that SEO. Is that worth 2k/m? no.
