    hey guys,

    i have new interested client and im not sure how much to price him.

    he have a quite big project, he want me to promote him on Google india, Google Austlia, Google Russia and finally google.com,

    the SEO plan is :

    each keyword will get 7-10 articles published on 70-100 article directories.
    each keyword will get 3 videos published on 20 video directories.
    each keyword will get 1 linkwheel with 20 spokes.
    each keyword will get 1 press release campaign.
    finally each keyword will get xrumer/scrapebox blast.

    in general the client will get also social bookmarking which means facebook, twitter, digg, myspace etc..

    also he want a little redesign for his website and refreshing the content.

    so basically this is the SEO plan how much you think i should charge him ?

    p.s i did the keywords research and the search volumes are real low, the stronger keyword has a volume search of 10k all the rest is little more than 1k volume search so its real low but its targeted to 4 countries.

    the competition is good not so hard to compete but still its lot of work involved since its targeted to different countries.

    any suggest would be appreciated.

    Thanks

    When i do services this is how i price :
    *Estimate how much i work on the project (usually set more hours then i actually do)
    *Price this hours with a flat rate.
    *Calculate other expenses like : tools,proxy,captcha or whatever else it involves.
    *Add the tax fees ( if you even pay them ^^ )
    and other things i can`t remember now :D

    For this kinda project of yours i will bill for nothing less then 200$ / keyword

    200$/keyword i think this is real cheap, i was aiming for around $400-$500/keyword
    don't forget that each keyword should be ranked top in 4 different countries.

    but again im not sure if it's to much..

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.
    Home Page:
    I would think that you are in the ballpark @ 400 - 500 per keyword. I would price it at the higher end and if it takes you less time, give the guy a break at the end of the project when you hit him with your final bill.

    this is exactly what i thought but i wasn't so sure about the price, since i need each client and i don't want to scare him off with the price so i want to give a price that he will love to hear and still ain't gonna sound expensive for him.

    the volume search's are against me as i have to show him the numbers so he can choose the main keywords, but i hope he will be ready to pay $500 per keyword considering that i have to work with different locations and languages.

    Thanks for the advices.

    Some people have different rates ^^
    Plus you didnt mention the niche you`re working on cuz you can`t bill an wallpaper webmaster as a pharmacy website .. You also didn`t mention how much xrumer and scrapebox you`ll put in there...

    But i guess 400-500 its fine if you say that its not easy what you do in there.

    its not matter of easy or hard its matter of the volume of work i need to put in this project, i can't promise to a client that he will be ranked in google 1st page after 1 month work it should take more than that as usual and also when i get him there i cant promise him that his product will sell this is his part in the project, my part is to bring him there to put him on the front line which ill do its not really depends which niche is it, this structure should work on any niche the time is the only matter here in some niche it can take 1 month and in other it can take 1 year.
