    I just need to ask, how do you know what to charge? Whether your doing SEO, or other marketing methods, there needs to be a logical way of creating a price for them. Key to this would be, i imagine, things like for example in a dentist
    average amount of clients per month
    income generated from average client
    etc
    And how would you gain stats like that without contacting each dental surgery yourself? is there some national standard statistics that are out there already to use as a guideline for things like that?

    You set yourself a price you're ready to work for and start from there. For example, if you think that $20/hour is the minimum you're ready to work for and that the work will take 300 hours - you ask for 20 * 300 = $6,000.

    This is how businesses work, and this is how they will expect you to explain your prices.

    It depends on what kind of marketing. Do you have a marketing background? A degree? Proven results?

    Are you dealing with big clients? If so, you could work for royalties.

    I don't have a marketing a degree or anything, just a masters in a science subject, and its just something I am getting into now. Just interesting to see how everyone sets their prices, but even then, I like to know things like the amount of clients they would expect to normally get, average income per client,etc. I guess its normally a case of just try it and see how it is.
