    Hello fellas,

    I have been around for quite some time. At that time I've gained a lot of knowledge what helped me rank well for a lot of sites.

    100-300 article submissions (depending on pack silver, gold, premium)
    up to 1000 high pr0-pr7 directory submissions
    20 spokes with 2 posts each - Linkwheel/Mininet
    400-1000 **************** PR0-PR8 Profile Links (depending on pack)
    100% readable - unique content (professionally spun) on every spoke and article.
    Social bookmarks on 70-80% of links

    Indexing service - pinging, RSS creating & submissions, social bookmarking, nofollow profiles, Ping.FM pinging


    What do you think about the rates? What is a reasonable price for this service?


    Thanks guys


    NOTE: I AM NOT SELLING ANYTHING HERE, I AM GETTING INTO ABOUT HOW TO SELL, MY THREAD (HOPEFULLY) WILL BE SEEN LATER IN BST SECTION

    Only a piece of my service, for the same quality, is sold here at higher rates than that. I was thinking 200 and up

    Thinking higher up might be good later on but if you want to get out there and known, you'll need to have some competitive prices. For example: Lets say that you needed someone that rewrites Google Trends. Two people advertise on the same day and one says they'll rewrite the Google Trends $4.00 for 150-200 words at top notch quality, another one says they'll rewrite Google Trends $1.25 for 150-200 words and the one that has cheaper rates also offers and has top notch quality, if not even better service. Which one would you be using the most?

    I believe that in the beginning you should think of giving a discount rate. Later on you might increase the price once you build a trust with your customers but until then, I would really think about starting off with a price like between $85-$100, maybe $150 but you've got to remember that there are tons of other services like these out there, so what makes yours "special" so to speak. :D

    Of course I would offer some reviews, some discounts so people see how good I am.

    It's an Algo, of course it can be gamed.

    I'd be sure to make your pricing lower than the other guys for starters... you do not want to price yourself out of the market. Offering several options is always a great idea so your prospects are not deciding to use your service but rather which part of your service to use.

    I think it would make sense for you to see what the competition is offering and either offer more for the same money or the same for less money.

    To those of you that are wondering if he can offer something good... I've worked with him in that past and he is spot on sharp.
