BEWARE! Don’t Sell SEO As A Digital Marketing Agency

One of the biggest mistakes that I have ever made was selling SEO services for low monthly retainers

Because of this, I ended up getting a bunch of dissatisfied clients who eventually fired me for providing little to no results

This was a case of overpromising and not having the budget available to implement the proper SEO

But in reality, if you are selling to lower ticket clients, you may want to consider selling just a piece of the SEO service or create a product that entails certain pieces of SEO

The term “full-service SEO” generally comes with a higher price tag due to the intensity of developing a proper SEO campaign

What you need to do is productize your offering, add in a few pieces of the SEO and create a package around that

The most successful agencies know the work it takes to implement the right SEO, therefore, they create the small, medium, and large packages for their clients

It is impossible to sell full-service SEO for $1,000, trust me I have tried and have failed miserably.

    I am selling SEO apart from other services, but on my local Czech market, much easier to deliver quality services & results especially with long term clients. the longest one I have is 9 years:)
