How much to pay for SEO services?

The question is often asked. Many people have been burned by SEO services, but many have also been rewarded SEO like any business transaction or purchase, you should only spend money when you feel comfortable. Your comfort zone should derive from various dependencies, such as how well you know this business, how long you have been doing business with this person or entity, what your first impression is, how you personally feel about this person or entity’s ability to provide this service and how well you did your homework.

The truth about SEO services is that it’s usually not a difficult job

 But that doesn’t mean it’s easy. It still takes time, dedication, effort, strategy, technique, method, skill and experience to perform quality SEO services. Anyone can use SEO services because it is within your reach to learn, but not everyone can implement a sound strategy to make SEO work. That’s why SEO engineers are needed to make the almost impossible happen, but the question is how do you know you made the right choice and didn’t overpay for SEO services?

I can honestly say that SEO service providers are mostly on the rise and want nothing more than a professional business and providing quality SEO services. Identifying every questionable SEO service may not be possible, but I have a few recommended tips that should help anyone get a fair, quality price for SEO services.

Shop around

Set yourself a “realistic” marketing budget and goal

  • Don’t buy until you feel comfortable
  • Remember “cheap doesn’t always mean better”
  • Ask for references / recommendations / portfolio
  • Check references / recommendations / portfolio
  • Request statistical reports on growth and progress

Set yourself a realistic marketing budget and goal

It simply means don’t fool yourself into thinking you can pay $200 and make thousands overnight. Instead, create a budget based on your marketing needs, competitive industry, projected outcome, and length of time. If you’re looking to get your website ranked in the top 10 pages of search engine results for a specific keyword or keywords, expect to pay thousands, often times tens of thousands, for quality, professional and reliable SEO services, almost always depending on the competitiveness of the keyword to say. If you want to rank in the top 10 for a keyword “Google” it’s impossible in most cases, but I’m sure there are some SEO companies that will accept the challenge but charge thousands if not millions to attempt this crazy marketing goal.

Shop around

Find the most attractive SEO services and compare them with other competitive SEO services. Don’t settle for ‘cheap’ or ‘cheap’, settle for ‘effective’ and ‘strategy’. Anyone can do SEO work, but not everyone can improve results using SEO services. This is because SEO is about technique and strategy. It’s not just about throwing thousands of links out there and sitting around waiting for them to explode. It’s actually much more complicated than that, because it’s about strategy, technique and competitive advantage. You need to find SEO services that live by this principle and can offer you the strategic road map you need to succeed.

Don’t buy until you feel comfortable

You should always feel comfortable trusting your money in the paws of an SEO service provider. If you have special needs like signing a contract, want a specific salary schedule, or have any questions, make sure you get the answers and are happy with the projected outcome, then move on. I personally suggest creating a contract that states the projected outcome and any other points, and then also explores the consequences or possibilities if the projected outcome is not achieved.

Remember “Cheap Doesn’t Always Mean Better”

This is a customer notice. When someone offers $20 SEO services or even $200 SEO services, I would say “buyers beware”. There may be a few highly qualified SEO providers who can offer you discounted or extremely low cost SEO services, but most of the time these providers either don’t know what their service is worth or they know exactly what they are doing, but they may have had a lucky streak. You will have to pay the most or aggressively but still affordable for quality, strategic and experienced SEO services. SEO engineers are what I like to call them. These are SEOs who understand the concept of SEO, who are pioneers of SEO methods and who don’t always follow the trend, but they know the trends.

Most SEO engineers will not be cheap,

But they are worth every dollar spent. If you consider other marketing and advertising platforms, such as television advertising, print advertising, advertising at large fairs/fair stands, etc. Internet marketing and search engine optimization cost peanuts compared to these other advertising methods and have a larger audience reach.
