    I have done a bunch of SEO for myself, some family and family co-workers. I'm getting better and had a company contact me about more information. They said they're a small local therapist company that wants to have SEO done. Not really sure what to charge per month? Any guy's doing SEO for work, how much do you charge a month? and any other advice would be good. He did say he is a small local place so I'm doubting I can get much money from him.

    You really can charge as much as you want. Feel the customer thru and try to sense how much he's willing to pay. What I would do is charge $500 and outsource the whole process and have someone do the work for me on odesk for a lot cheaper. But $500 is a fair price

    Would depend on the competition, but since it is a small local place chances are that the SEO competition would be low. But $500 is less for a one time fee. Ask for $1000 minimum if it is one time fee or go with $500 if the work would stretch for more than a month. Tell them you only do quality work :)

    ask $200 every month, 500 will scare them away.

    depends what you're doing, and where you're marketing and advertising. Just at a competitive price level where you can still make a good profit.

    SEO is a very hot spot for most businesses and it's in demand. It's consuming too. So charge min. $500.00. When going after a company, look them up and do the research on what they might be able to spend, etc. Gives you a better idea when going in
