    Hey Guys,

    I really had no idea where to stick this because I'm trying to get pricing figured out and wanted to hear from you guys in what you would believe to be a fair market value.

    So the service I want to provide is:

    Building Custom Niche Webstores


    The service outline:

    Basically my potential customer would give me a broad niche and I would break that niche down to find valuable keywords that can easily be ranked in the top 5 on Page 1.

    I would target 5 other keywords to expand the search reach.

    The goal of these sites is to rank high in Google and provide targeted real traffic.

    So I would build a complete custom website, optimize content (about two or three articles) and then rank the website.

    The entire process would take 6-8 weeks just to insure rank stability.

    A demo of the quality of the site would be:

    http://www.mychristmaslingerie.com

    The above site is not ranking as I have not put work into it as I built it to late for the season.

    --------------------------------------

    I'm trying to figure out my pricing, I am thinking $297 for the custom design, setup, affiliate program setup, and backlink work.

    In the end you are guaranteed a product on the first page of Google (top 5 spots).


    I dunno... what do you guys think

    --------------------------------------

    for the naysayers I have analytical data, screenshots, I can even do a video logging in to my affiliate networks to show how these sites make BANK.


    --------------------------------------

    What are your feelings is $297 too much, too little, a waste of my time?

    thank you for your time.

    I think you and 1000's like you are trying to same thing..... (including myself) -- just with different twist. $297 is too cheap.... I would go $500 minimum..... good luck!

    Hey Kosher,

    Thanks for your advice, however, I guess the keyword would have to be able to produce a higher ROI with the higher price.

    You should do it based on the competing sites. Like .0001 cents * how many results for that kw. Basically for every 1million results, it would be 100 bucks. Then add the price for your building the site and doing the research. You may want to factor in another equation for how stiff the first page competition is for that kw.

    shifty,

    good advice... however I don't know if competing pages would be the best factor or if search volume would be.

    Reason so because I've had a 4Mil competing page keyword rank better then a 50,000 competing page keyword due to the strength of the Top 10.

    Another idea would be selling the site giving the customer a buyout option at a higher price, or a lower priced option where you keep a percentage of everything the site earns. Now whether you then put the site management in the hands of the customer or hang onto it at that point is up to you, and I see many ways in which the latter could go south- but it's a thought.

    Why sell it when you can set it up and profit.

    Set up 1000 of these throw some adsense on them, then keep earning income.
