    Month 1: (Total Backlinks: 400)


    Week 1: (Total Backlinks: 50)

    - We will submit 5 articles (400 words) in Top 5 article submission sites
    - Blog commenting: 20 (It also includes Social bookmarking of approved comment and pinging for indexing)
    - Web 2.0 Submission: 5 (Each articles will be 300-350 words)
    - Social Bookmarking: 20

    Week 2: (Total Backlinks: 50)

    - Article Submission: 5 (Each 400 words)
    - Forum Posting: 20 (It also includes Social bookmarking of approved comment and pinging for indexing)
    - Web 2.0 Submission: 5 (Each articles will be 300-350 words)
    - Social Bookmarking: 20


    Week 3: (Total Backlinks: 50)

    - Article Submission: 5 (Each 400 words)
    - Press Release submission: 5
    - Blog commenting: 20 (It also includes Social bookmarking of approved comment and pinging for indexing)
    - Social Bookmarking: 20

    Week 4: (Total Backlinks: 50)

    - Press Release submission: 5

    Is there anything that would need to be improved here?

    Sounds like you're about to be ripped off.

    All that you've mentioned is fairly standard seo practice and can either be really well done or done in an hour with automated tools.

    Trust me, I would, but I am working on two clients sites, and one is very anal, and wants mainly white hat. What type of work exactly should I be expecting at $400?

    This sounds like a lot to pay for what you have listed. You could probably have the same thing done on Fiverr for $50 but honestly, all of that will probably not do a lot if the terms are really competitive. Most of your links will likely end up as nofollow and I have not seen any value from Press releases, other than for indexing, in years.

    Look for people that will build followed, contextual links and that are willing to give you an initial sample for a low price. You may want to also set up web 2.0 pages/profiles and build links to those rather than your main sites.
