How Much Does SEO cost in Singapore
Depending on whether you are working with a freelancer, a consultant or an agency, they may charge you based on a variety of models.
- Hourly SEO Rates may vary between $25-150 per hour.
- Monthly SEO retainers averages between $800 - $5000 per month.
- One-Off Optimizations may cost anywhere from $1000 onwards.
Honestly, there is a large disparity of pricing that SEO Companies are charging these days. How do we decide what is fair and what is not?
Let's breakdown the actual costs of each component of an SEO project. Remember, these are all the key elements that any SEO company should do, so do benchmark your SEO provider to this list.
Everything that happens outside of your website:
Offpage SEO Optimization
- Citation building ($3-5 per citation)
- Media Exposure and Press Releases ($100-$1000 per PR)
- Guest Posting and Link Building ($60-$1000 per guest post)
- Other Miscellaneous Link Building Efforts ($varies)
So how much does SEO really cost again? This will largely depend on the competitiveness of your industry.
Let's consider a hypothetical scenario for a month (let's exclude all the necessary work that's required on the website and consider offpage work only.)
- Citation Building ($300 , $3 per citation)
- 1 PR per month ($250) *PRweb charges $389 USD for their Premium Release*
- 5 guest posts ($500 , $100 per guest post)
That would sum up to be: $1050 / month
Remember: This is a bare minimum of a proper SEO campaign that is somewhat on the less competitive industry. If your industry is more competitive, you'll be looking into acquiring more citations, more PRs and more backlinks in month.
At this point, we've yet to factor in the time and expertise of the SEO consultant or agency for the planning, and working on the website itself.
At Adscelerate Marketing, we don't have a standard SEO pricing or package per se.
We'll always audit your current business and where it stands with your competition before we can advice a pricing for a strategy tailored for your business.
A good ball park figure for a less competitive industry would be $800 per month, and a more competitive industry $1,600 - as a starting point.
