    kese ho gaanv waalo? :)

    Okay here is the question,
    3 months ago, i met with a small business owner in delhi. I offered him my SEO service for his business website. He was like "really?"
    But when it came to pricing. "well, no doubt seo is good for my website, but you know my business don't need online traffic and all that stuff"

    wohi purane ghise pite excuses

    i used my backup plan and offered him "i will rank your site top 3 within 2 months" ( note: this offer was on low competition keywords. He didn't know though)

    Now he's like, okay let's give it chance.

    deal was closed and he is quite happy with the results.

    But now he wants to rank for a specific keyword which is highly competitive. when i said you have to pay additional charges for this.
    He said: khali ek keyword toh hai :D
    i mean WTF

    Now how should i calculate this and charge for that specific keyword. Ya fir usko tata bye bye bol du?

    Reason behind i wanted only Indian BHW members to answer this, because; only they understand indian market.

    Thank you

    - Ravi

    use only English .
    If he doesn't want to invest more , find a long tail related to that keyword , and till him this keyword will convert more.

    Don't sell your service to them like you selling vegetables. Be professional and don't undersell. If it it a highly competitive keyword look at the costs it would incur for you to keep doing it month by month and you can add extra 25% to 50% as profit for yourself.

    that makes a difference.
    we are in india not in us.

    you ranked his site for "delhi apples" , then he will ask you to rank site for "apples".

    get a .in domain , do seo for google.co.in . if you can pm me keyword and site then i can help you.

    Make sure you don't use any other language rather than English in the forum :nono:, because the market for SEO is common all over the world according to the money value it differs so any one can help you in this problem.
    My suggestion over your problem is, it is difficult to bring the high competition keyword to the top as there will be lot of huge organizations will be working for the same keyword for lot of years. If the website present in 6th or 7th page in SERP, then you can give your best and pull it over till third page(if all your SEO stuffs emitted full fledged):).
    Else search for a new client;)...

    You have to explain him more about Keyword Competition and all the stuffs that you are going to do, make him understand. Be confident because he won't give you anything extra if he doesn't believes you.

    Of course.

    Be professional, think of clients, their benefit.

    If they don't have much knowledge, educate them.

    Ask Him for Extra, If he Don't Agree, Tell me OK You will continue your work with same what he was paying before.

    Next Step:

    Start Doing Negative SEO Fuck His Business Up, The Results Will take time so i am sure you will be paid until then and after a month ask him that you will no longer do the work because you have some other projects etc, Keep Fucking his website with Negative Seo after that for a week or two and i am sure he will call you back and beg you to start again whatever price you want.

    Hoooray, WIN WIN Situation.

    why can't you make it a long tail keyword from the same keyword.
    If its hard better to say him goodbye ( i offer quality seo not cheap seo ).If he's a businessman he knows that in delhi quality with guaranteee never comes cheap and results will prove my statement.
