How much does SEO cost?

According to Ahrefs 2018 industry study, SEO experts charge from $75 to $150 USD per hour. 

However, most SEOs charge a month retainer rather than hourly rates

In the US most agencies charge $2.5k to $5k USD per month for SEO.

Ahrefs also determined the cost of 1 backlink to be $361.44 USD in 2018.

Our SEO services start from $699 per month and we consistently build backlinks at well below the average industry cost.

Our 'action item' system

Our SEO plans & pricing is based on the number of tasks we perform each month, we call them ‘action items’.

Each month we audit your website, create a report on your current standings and assign your monthly ‘action items’ to your highest priority SEO tasks. 

That way we can always spend our time on the lowest hanging fruit.

Shopify SEO Case Studies

How long will it take to be profitable?
How long will it take to be profitable?

There are a number of determining factors that influence time to profitability when it comes to SEO. It can take anywhere from 3 to 12 months to reach profitability. This can be faster if you check all these boxes or if you invest more aggressively.

i. How much organic traffic you get now

If you’ve already conducted thorough keyword research and on-page SEO. Or if you already rank for a number of keywords and have started to build your backlink profile, then time to ROI can be faster.

ii. Conversion rates

Your conversion rates will affect what percentage of visitors buy from you, and therefore the ROI of your SEO campaigns. The average ecommerce conversion rate is around 2.5%. But averages lie, these averages don’t take into account location, traffic channels or seasonal skews. Most Shopify stores have around 1% conversion rate, so build this into your expectations.

iii. Product/market fit

Your products need to have the correct positioning in your market, industry or niche and appeal to your typical customer. You can have a great product and still struggle to sell it to the wrong person with the wrong value proposition.

iv. Content quality

If you've already got great content it's possible to grow faster. Well researched, well designed, well-written content, with the right search intent can help us quickly build links to your site..
