I started do SEO for my first client last month. At that time we do not set up a monthly payment, just a one time fee for creating and optimizing new landing page.
What I did last month is, creating about 200 new landing page to target different area. and optimizing them. The keywords are "city"+"service"
Now, about 160 keywords ranked top 10 in major search engine.
about 60 ranked in #1-3 in Google, yahoo and bing.
Then I get paid for $300.
yes, just $300.
And this month I set up a monthly service for them.
1. create new landing page to cover more service.
2. do SEO for main keywords.
3. create video for each landing page.
4. submit the video
5. create auto responder like aweber, and to build list
6. build backlink.
7. create facebook fan page, and other social media networks.
Price is : $1000/month.
I was trying to sell at about $1500 or higher. But the client said he had already hire other company to do some SEO work. and hire a person to manage their Google adwords account. He paid: $1500 (other SEO) + $600 (PPC)
So he did not have much budget. maybe.
So I think, well, it's ok. let's do for $1000.
cuz I think I will get some referrals from him in next month.
What do you guys think?
