    It depends on how much the person get's per customer and how many searches a month and of course competition. Let's say I'm doing SEO for a NY Criminal Lawyer and that's the keyword and it get's 60k searches a month and competition is a 7/10 hard and he get's paied 400-500 per customer I would charge $5k without a doubt and throw some ppc up while the site is moving up so he will be satisfied.

    it depends on who they are.
    Personally i think people that own there own businesses dont have a clue what SEO is so for maybe a hairdressers charge them a couple 100 dollars a month to keep them top?

    But if its some business like a dentist that can make 100's just of one visit because of you i'd charge a good grand or 2 :) haha

    Painter for instance I would charge no more than $500. Depends on location, I wouldnt sell yourself for less and would charge $200 minimum. Get 20 painters a month and that's around $5,000 net :).

    Just don't give them any promises or that will ******** you over in the long run. You should get a lawyer to make a contract for you if you're serious about this business

    In my experience the smaller service industries aren't really worth the effort. You charge them a price you think is too low, they think it is too high and have unrealistic expectations (no matter what you tell them up front) and they are usually a support nightmare. A $200 per month client will usually take up more of your time than a 5k client and be talking smack about you to all of his friends (other business owners) even though you have them on top of goog for a dozen keywords.

    Unless you just look at them as a quick cash scam for 3 months and use a different name or work out of town they are useless. Stick with the big ticket advertisers who will be happy just to see their site on top of goog.

    I wouldn't charge less than $500 a month and that is low. You'll find out that it is too much trouble to target anyone without a high transaction value for their service. Small businesses with low transactions just isn't worthit.

    For a good SEO usually there is a charge between $5000 to $8000
    and after this is complete, you can charge a monthly fee to keep them on top google page.
    Good luck
