    Most mainstream SEO agencies iv seen/worked for aren't that profitable. From my experience, white hat agencies only receive around 3 - 6% net profit.

    Is this a fact with most agencies? Does anyone else here have any insight that could shed some light?

    No, whenever I worked or run an agency we ensure that we are making decent money or we wouldn't work. We would close down, or reduce staff. Most is what the sales person/director can get away with charging - based on a presumed budget unless we are pitching against others. Sometimes we won't waste time, is the monthly value would be too low. We also upsell to, providing other services. Certainly, each client has their ups and downs but again, not worth the employees value unless we are making an ongoing profit. I hate outsourcing and prefer to work with everyone in-house for many reasons. Mainly to do with control and ease of access to everyone verbally in an office unit.
