    Hey guys,

    I'm really confused by this. How do SEO agencies charge? how can one agency say it will cost £500 per month for SEO and another one say it will cost £600

    What I'm asking is does anyone actually know how to put together a reasonable explainable quotation for a SEO job without just sticking their finger in the air?

    Whats the method for quotation? any help is appreciated!

    Thanks in advance

    You have to understand the enormous commercial differences between so-called 'SEOs'...

    Experience can make a huge difference to long-term cost, and this will reflect in higher consultation prices. It's not just the case of clicking buttons and charging different prices. Why does 1 lawyer charge $100p.h., but another $1000 ?

    Then you have the tools available to a bigger agency; more powerful, reaching and bespoke... They cost more than a license of SB and SENuke!

    The bottom line is; you charge according to experience, effectiveness and what the client can afford. I adopt different pricing for the same service, depending on the client and how they 'position' themselves, and what level of contact they want etc.
