How do I do it? Just start sending emails to people asking for price?
It depends on the industry you are in but I would take that $2000 a month and invest it into quality content that will hopefully get some linkbacks. Think of it as link bait. You could also post links on your social networking pages linking back to your content to drive visitors to your site. I am not thinking of these links as links to improve your ranking but to get visitors onto your site which will then hopefully link to your site directly and not to your social media pages. The problem with social media is it can become the center point and not your site if you post to much content on it.
...we find that it is easy for relatively new and unknown sites to beat us...
That may be a sign that your site is not established if a relatively new site can overtake you that easily.
If your on-page and off-page are done in a thorough manner then your rankings will be on solid foundation. If it's not then it will be subject to shifting because the barrier to entry is set low.

[edit reason] no outings - no links [/edit]
Google is a lot more lenient on Australian search results because of lack of local content and lack of competition...
I am now thinking of spending around $2000 a month on SEO and all of that on good quality links (no analysis, no audits, no on-page, no other #*$!).You might not want to hear this, but if your'e planning on spending $24K on links in 2015 - I'd at least spend some of that money on getting a proper audit and sorting out the on-page stuff.
good quality links (no analysis, no audits
because I've already got those areas covered
