This is probably the most common question that we get regarding SEO, and it’s amazing how varied the answer is depending on who you ask. Some firms charge initial fees of $3-10k and ongoing monthly fees of $1500-5k for SEO, while at the same time off-shore companies promote SEO services for $99/month. The differences in the price of SEO services can be staggering and confusing.
At Bright Tribe we keep the price of SEO simple.
We believe our fees should be based in actual work we perform, not simply pressing a button and submitting an automated report and charging hundreds (or thousands!) of dollars per month. Instead, our fees are based on the number of pages we create initially and on an ongoing basis + our base SEO fee. For example, if we do a small SEO campaign with 10 pages, the price will be $300×10 = $3000k + $1200 base fee = $4200. That means we will research, write, edit, and optimize 10 pages of client’s website. The base fee includes all of the keyword research, competitive analysis, etc. that goes into an SEO strategy.
On a monthly basis, if we write 3 new SEO pages (blogs, articles, services, FAQ’s, etc.) the cost will be $275×3 = $825+$300 base fee = $1125/month. This is a pretty straightforward, easy-to-manage and easy-to-budget way to approach SEO. There are exceptions, depending on the complexity of the content that needs to be written, but this is a very good rule of thumb.
We provide custom pricing for specialized, high-volume or unique challenges, and we also offer longer, “authority” or “ultimate guide” pages that are priced individually depending on the topic and length.
