Thanks in advance.
What I find is that some are willing to spend thousands, while others aren't willing to spend even a little.
The hardest part is getting them to put the trust into your SEO Skills.
Hit them for what you can.
- medical insurance
- business overhead
- the number of billable hours you'll have will decrease because you'll be wearing new hats, like sales, administration, accounting, janitorial ;). (Offset slightly by the fewer number of showers you'll eventually take.)
Build your rate structure so that you can hire yourself and still leave profits for the business on top of that.
5,000.00 a month for key word advertising
Well, as a guideline, we won't touch PPC campaigns for less than a 20% agency fee. (20% of their monthly spend and we have a minimum amount the client has to spend)
I agree wholly with jamesa... you'll HAVE to make at least twice what you make as an "employee" to surive as the owner. And you HAVE to make sure to hold enough back for taxes or you may be hit with a HUGE tax bill that would put you under.
