Hi guys first of all, I wanted to say that I really appreciate the help I get here. I feel like this is the best place to get advice about issues because many of you guys have been through the same thing so you truly understand my situation. also, please don't be scared by the long post. it's quite interesting. so I have this legal/attorney website that ranks for a few keywords. I am trying to rent it to an attorney. I wanted $1000 a month. considering that the website is getting at least 10 visitors a day, and PPC charges $25 a click, I believe this is very reasonable. looking at it another way: if an attorney wanted to hire an seo company to seo their own site, it would cost $3000/month for at least 6 months. either way, $1000/month is cheap (I think so, no?) I have met with this group of 3 attorneys who work together in a law firm. to avoid making the post too long, I will just list all the bad things that have happened: They tried to get me down from $1000 a month to $300. Finally, I agreed to $400 a month and said "let's see how it goes, I may decrease or increase it" the next day, I emailed the main guy, asking if I could pick up the payment. He said he wants 2 months free because any time you move into a house, you get 2 months free (WTF? I have NEVER heard such thing) I said i dont do free trials. he said "ok, at least give us a week free. let's start the cycle next week" next week, I emailed, he said "I am not in the office now, come tomorrow" the next day, he told me I could go in. I went in, and he said he wants to suggest another business model. what if he pays me for every client that he gets? I said no, I dont work that way. so he went to the back room and came back with $300, saying "I dont have another $100, I will pay you later" which is complete BS. every day, he or his office mates email me 20 times asking for stupid changes to the site. If I dont make the change right away, they call. They email me garbage articles and ask me to include in the site. I have to waste my time fixing the articles. when I told the main guy that an seo company would charge at least $3000 a month, he said "no, this isn't 2006 any more. SEO is an $8/hr job" < exact quote. their excuses for not paying $1000: there is no guarantee that the site will not disappear tomorrow....and what if they dont get any leads? (not my problem) to summarize: these are the type of people who will take advantage of you as much as they possibly can. so what should I do to get paid more? I dont think I want to dump them because I have found it difficult to find people who are interested. how much do you think is a fair amount, and how should I approach them, should I be rude, should I be polite, should I be cocky, should I be humble, should I call, should I email? can you just break down what I should do?
