    OP don't listen to him. The correct answer is 13 hours, 37 minutes and 17 seconds.

    This is inbound marketing 101.





    ...but in all seriousness there is no answer. 10 outreach links on shitty fake sites? 10 minutes. 10 great links? Doing it yourself? Days...months...never. Paying editors? Again, minutes. All comes down to $$$

    What you are asking for is impossible. What sites? Is the clients site even worthy of links? How long will it take the editor to finish eating his lunch, taking a dump and wiping his ass before he reads your email? What if he leaves the office on his lunch break and meets a hot chick and calls out the rest of the day to lay pipe? See...so many variables. It is IMPOSSIBLE to answer your question. Sorry, but that is the truth and reality.

    Do you own your business or does he? I don't walk into a store and declare I am paying for my groceries with rocks and sand.

    Well thats the thing I'm sort of new to this, and hes talking about having a position for me, like an assistant, where I can get these links, to work with him.

    It will be good experience for me and I have a lot to offer I just have no idea what to charge

    So many variables - really hard to give you advice. You need to know what your time is worth and charge based on that. Also, the type of inks you are going after - the sites, etc.

    It's a numbers game.

    If you are using a service like Grouphigh, pitchbox or seo powersuite and can do 10-20 good pitches an hour, expect 3-4 of them to respond.

    Then expect one or two of those that responded to actually post your content.

    Time writing content, pitching and getting a response realistically would be around 1-2 hours per link.

    OP, your question is like asking how long is a piece of string. You can only give an average of what it normally takes you, as you obviously haven't done this before then you can't give an answer and how long it takes somebody else is not applicable because these things vary.
    You don't know what he is providing for you and you don't know how long it will take you so you can't quote him an hourly rate, I bet you haven't researched the sites yet and have no idea how difficult/easy it will be to get a link there so you can't quote him per link.
    Looking at your previous posts tells me you are pretty much a noob ,so you shouldn't really be taking money off people to provide services for them, as you can seriously fuck with somebodies business.
    Not putting you down, just suggesting you gain more experience before taking on clients.

    You obviously don't want to listen. What you are asking for is impossible to provide you. Not suer what part of that you don't understand.
