Frequently Asked About Pricing

How much do freelancers charge for SEO?

Rate on freelancers hiring platform with lowest hourly rate would be starting from RM59 in RM currency. Rate gets higher depending on reputation. Personally I charge based on different packages — hourly, scope based, project based, and monthly.

How much should I spend on SEO per month?

As SEO is a long term process and the effect will not be significant when you first started, it is important to spend at affordable rate. For start up companies, I would suggest to spend no more than RM5,000. As for small medium-sized and large enterprises, you can expect to spend more than RM5,000 for agencies if you do not have in house digital marketing team.

Personally I have seen costlier rate from reputable agency which ranged from RM5,000 to RM15,000 per month. One off project would be around RM3,000 to RM4,000.

How long does your contract last? What happens if we terminate the contract?

Unlike SEO agencies, I do not have contract for clients. I prefer monthly-basis jobs. I certainly would be happy to have one if you would like to hire on regular basis.

How do you do SEO?

I will first troubleshoot issues on the website before I perform optimization. On-page optimization comes after all the critical issues are fixed. Enhancement of advanced technical SEO elements is done after the on page optimization is completed.

Do you just make recommendations or actually implement them?

I understand that many would not prefer outsider to implement stuff due to confidentiality. I would certainly be making recommendations and implementing if I was specifically requested, providing that access to the website will be granted.

What do you do for Convertion Rate Optimization (CRO)

I will be running tests on landing pages by using tools to find out highest converting landing pages. Optimization and strategizing will be done on those pages to improve conversion rate.

What will you do as a consultant?

Upon understanding your marketing objective and depending on type of service requested, I will be defining tailored strategy for your action.

How do freelancers do SEO?

Every individual SEO expert does differently but most will go through a standard process which is to troubleshoot existing issues on the website before the actual implementation is being done. On page SEO is important as it relates to how search engine spiders can effectively crawl the website. Link building and content beef up would not help as effective if website is not well structured and not friendly to search engine spiders.

What is SEO and how it works?

SEO stands for Search Engine Optimization which it refers to digital marketing strategy that increases the visibility of a website in search results.

What does your optimization process look like?

I will start with auditing the website to pinpoint what to be optimized in terms of on-page seo and technical SEO. Keyword research and enhancement of seo elements will come after all the flagged elements in audit report were fixed. I will be providing strategies throughout the entire process. Of course, I can address issues directly without all these processes if requested.

What can you help with other than SEO?

Conversation Rate Optimization (CRO). I can help with testing and modifying elements of website to increase the chance of turning visitor into customer. User Experience (UX) Optimization. I can work on testing hypothesis by tools to understand your visitors better.
