If you are a business owner who has decided to outsource internet marketing, you might be wondering, “How much does it cost to outsource SEO (Search Engine Optimization) marketing?”
Before we get to that, I would like to mention the reasons someone might want to do that instead of doing it inhouse using your own full time team of employees.
Once you have understood the advantage of outsourcing SEO and other online marketing activities, you would like to know more about the cost of outsourcing SEO.
So, coming back to SEO costs, please remember that costs of internet marketing outsourcing (or SEO outsourcing) greatly vary and it depends on a lot of factors like complexity of the projects, results you would like to achieve, the industry you are in, the level of competition, the size of the project, the time duration of the project, the size and reputation of the vendor or freelancer you are dealing with etc.
However, it is possible to provide a ballpark estimate of costs when it comes to outsourcing SEO. Given below is a table showing internet marketing costs (including SEO costs) on a project basis instead of an hourly basis.
The prices are all across the board, but here’s as estimate of the average ranges:
|Service||Low End||Mid Range||High End|
|Site Review + Consulting||$500||$2,500||$10,000|
|Hands-On Editing of Pages/Code||$2,000||$10,000||$50,000|
|Manual Link Building Campaign||$500||$5,000||$20,000|
|1-Day SEO Training Seminar||$750||$4,000||$12,000|
|Keyword Research Package||$100||$500||$2,000|
|Viral Content Development + Mktg||$1,000||$7,500||$20,000|
|Web Design, Development + Mktg||$5,000||$25,000||$100K+|
|Monthly Retainer for Ongoing SEO||$2,500||$7,500||$20,000+|
These costs are better than trying to building your own team to get the job done. However, you could get a better deal from a team that is highly experienced and perfectly equipped for the job.
