    Thats sound pretty smart. I am assuming that it helps build value in your services and keeps clients from cancelling their services with you.

    Anyone else have something different than what Peanut provides to his customers?

    Heh, it's the only reason I end up back in the forums these days - because I get notifications from threads I posted to and then someone digs them up and replies again. Fun times. :)

    I would love to hear more from the "SEO is dead" guy (latehorn). What can you point to to prove your assessment?

    I think you may be correct. I'm just looking for insight.

    I consider SEO to be purely related to on-site work

    I do full time marketing and seo. I live in Thailand and have the flexibility to go back to england to visit family and move around, its great.

    I find friends/businesses that i trust and market their product (mostly using seo) and i ask for a percentage.

    The best way to go full time is to work on your own sites. Find some profitable niches, build sites that convert, and then work full time promoting them.

    When you work for someone else, your profit is limited.

    I'd like to SEO my own sites and make money but the 2,500 visitor a day keyphrase only gets 10 to 20 people for # 3 spot. Maybe other keyphrases are different so I'm going to make a site with the keyphrase in the domain (another keyphrase with an even bigger daily visitor search).

    either a)latehorn has no idea what they're talking about or b) they're trying to yield people the wrong direction.

    i'm going with B.

    Hi Bilz,

    My SEO experience runs the gamut. I started at an agency, then moved inhouse and am transitioning to ownership of my own company.

    Typical monthly SEO service fees run from about 1K -5K per month from an agency. I would say this is the average monthly quote for professional SEO services.

    I guess the question I would ask first is where are you at experience wise? If you've done some work for companies with brand recognition the skies the limit. If you've done some smaller businesses like the rest of us, you'll usually need to start lower.

    The best way I've gained clients is through referrals from other clients. If you're going to charge them a lower fee make a list of referrals part of the deal. Sure I'll knock off $200 a month if you provide me with 3 quality referrals who might need my help. Always be looking for opportunities like that.



    I am curious how many of you do SEO work as your full time job. Do you work for a company that pays you to do work for the company and their clients?
    Do you have your own consulting firm? If so, how do you gain new clients and how do you determine pricing?

    Personnally, i'm stuck doing SEO work since I can't afford to pay some monkey to do it. I should be developing sites and interesting algorithms because thats my talent, but since i started out solo, i have to do SEO to get my website seen. On the plus side i have some SEO helper tools in the pipeline that might be successful them selves.
