A Guide To Local SEO Services Pricing
Pricing is always such an ugly topic when it comes to SEO, and especially Local SEO services pricing. When dealing with Local clients, money typically is not overflowing from their business checking accounts looking for a home with your search marketing services.
As a quality marketing shop we think pricing should be last on our client’s mind: our shiny results and amazing customer service are worth it, right?!?!? Unfortunately, local SEO costs are typically the first thing on a local business owner’s mind.
Let’s get a couple things straight. We hate the terms costs, pricing, spend, and any other synonyms. What we do like is “invest” and “return”. We want business owner’s to know you invest in search engine optimization for the long term gains and returns – you do not call us 20 days after signing up to complain you have not gotten any leads.
