I need to know what are the international market rates for SEO, I have 1.5 years of experience in SEO for dynamic sites, link-building, traffic-building.
Can you help me determine correct costs for my services?
Eg, if you were working full time - what would that pay? 50K, 100K, 200K? Then, once you know what you would like to make, you can translate that into how many clients you would need to be able to make X, and then given how many clients you can manage at a time, easily come up with a figure.
This is what we've done for our pricing model, some companies complain "we're expensive" and others don't bat an eye at the prices.
At the end of the day, you need to charge enough per client to make the total bucket of clients you sign worth your time. Everybody puts a different value on their own work, so it's a personal decision once you map out the variables.
Also...keep in mind your USP or unique selling proposition - is it something people would pay extra for? Or, given the way you sell & position your services, are you the "discount service provider"...eg, does your collateral say "we'll beat competitors prices & we accept all competitor coupons" or do you say "looking for a discount, try these guys - looking for a highly trained professional, try us".
Hope this helps - good luck.
