Whether you’re a start-up business, or a business with over a century of trading behind you, it’s safe to say that your business will need SEO.
After all, more and more people are buying what they need over the internet, so it does make sense for your business to start standing out from the crowd.
Recognising the need for seo is easy, what’s not so easy to fathom, is which online marketing agency to choose.
After all, most cities are now crammed with various digital marketing agencies, all with fancy names, and offices to match.
So, who do you choose? And, whilst we are at it, how much should a business be paying for SEO?
If your struggling to find an answer to these all-important questions, then do not fear as we have been in the seo game for a long time, so let us enlighten you as how much you may wish to pay.
What will my business get is we pay around the £500.00 mark per month?
Firstly, we should probably explain why seo is charged per month, as some business owners struggle to get to grips with understanding why.
Every single website is ranked according the strength of the websites “ranking signals”. These can be anything from meta titles, through to backlinks.
Every single month, your direct competitors will be looking to get to the top of Google as well, this means they will be improving, and strengthening their businesses ranking signals as well.
This is why SEO is a continuous process, it never comes to a stop, and this is why SEO is charged per month.
So, we or another agency can optimise your website, so it doesn’t start flagging behind the competition.
Now back to the question at hand, what can you expect to get for the £500.00 mark per month?
Well, if you’re a small local business, such as a local hotel, or perhaps say a local vet, then the five hundred pound mark should be about right.
However, if your looking for national seo, or you work in a competitive business sector, such as being a solicitor for example, then the £500.00 quid mark is not likely to be enough.
What should I expect if I was to pay around £500 to the £1000.00 per month?
If you run a local business, and therefore need local seo, and your business is in a more competitive sector than average, then the £500.00 to £1000.00 per month is about right.
So, for example, perhaps you run a business that employs many plumbers, well the £1000.00 per month would be a suitable seo package if you needed seo to advertise your company in one city.
With that said, certain major cities across the U.K you should expect to pay more, closer to double.
What should my business expect for £3000.00+ per month?
Now your starting to talk more about the budgets that are more suitable for national seo. Yet, with that said, the budgets here can vary massively as well.
For example, a business selling a niche item, such as knifes for people in the catering profession, well £3000.00 per month would sound about right.
However, if you work for a car insurance business, and you’re looking for seo then expect to pay well above £20,000.00 per month.
Reason being is this, super competitive business sectors, like car insurance, will have massive companies competing for business, and they will be spending massive sums in order to retain being at the top.
