How Much Does SEO Consulting Cost?

The cost of SEO consulting depends on your website size, industry competition and marketing goals. We view SEO as a business necessity and price our services to suit a range of budgets, which also correlates to campaign aggressiveness.

With most clients, the actual work we perform is the same—regardless of the budget level. The difference is the volume. For instance, an eCommerce website with thousands of products will need more work than a local business offering one or two services.

Just fixing your website is a good place to start and can lead to a meaningful boost in traffic. However, we recommend budgeting for content marketing development if you can, as it is another key SEO area that continually drives organic traffic.

How Much Does SEO Consulting Cost?

How Our SEO Consulting Services Work

We’ll perform a free 20-point SEO performance audit, and present you with results that detail the full scope of your current digital marketing situation and prospective work. Our comprehensive analysis reviews your:

  • On-page SEO
  • Off-page SEO
  • Technical SEO
  • Local SEO
  • Link building strategy
  • Content marketing
  • Keyword relevance
  • SEO agency performance

Should you decide to partner with us; we’ll enter a monthly retainer agreement, so the real work can begin. Search engine optimization takes around three to four months to work, after which you’ll start to see tangible results.

During this time, our SEO consultants will improve all aspects of your SEO strategy and online marketing. We’ll take a look at your website’s UI and UX, as well as copy and content marketing assets.

Once we’ve made initial changes, our team will carefully monitor improvements and continue to optimize your web presence for as long as you require.

At the end of your contract, we’ll conduct another full-scale audit showcasing where the most growth occurred and offer suggestions for further improvement. At Comrade Digital Marketing Agency, our SEO consultants have the knowledge and experience to help you capture the market!

When Do You Need an SEO Consultation?

It is time to get an SEO consultation

Website Redesign

If you’re planning a high-level overhaul involving a significant change to code, content, structure, and visuals, you’ll want to conduct an SEO audit to ensure your frontend and backend are correctly optimized. An SEO audit preserves existing optimization and offers opportunities to update your website performance for improved user experience and revenue.

Website Migration

Because website migrations change a site’s locations, platform, structure, content, design, or UX, they can affect search engine visibility. To ensure your website rebounds as quickly and strongly as possible, you’ll want to conduct an SEO audit to troubleshoot technical issues and reclaim and build upon your existing SEO practices.

Poor Progress

An SEO audit will diagnose why your current SEO strategies aren’t achieving business success. Whether it’s broken links, poor site structure, ranking for unsuitable keywords, or on-page SEO, you’ll know what to fix to increase customer quality, improve user experience and resolve faults that have stopped you from ranking high on search results.

Google Algorithm Updates

Search engines are constantly evolving and updating their algorithms to provide the best user experience. As part of diligent SEO maintenance, an SEO audit is recommended after such updates to prevent a sudden drop in website traffic and ensure your strategy is up-to-date with Google’s best practices.

How Long Do SEO Consulting Services Take?

An SEO consulting company provides eCommerce websites with strategies for improvement, implements changes, and monitors progress. As you can imagine, this multi-faceted process doesn’t take place overnight.

Consulting services typically work on a monthly basis. Realistically, you’re probably looking at between three and four months at a minimum, if you really want to reap the benefits of search engine optimization.

SEO is a long-term digital marketing strategy with the best ROI, so it should always be viewed as an investment. Some of our best-performing clients see their best results after one year. So, like any good investment, SEO takes time to grow!

Remember, an SEO audit is not the same thing as SEO consulting. SEO consultants are responsible for planning, implementing, and managing a business’s overall SEO strategy. This includes a wide range of duties like digital marketing, analytics, technical optimizations, content strategy planning, keyword strategies, link building, and more.

SEO consulting services may include audits, but it depends on what clients request.

Which Businesses Benefit from SEO Consulting Services?

Different businesses benefit from SEO

Every business with an online presence benefits from hiring an SEO consulting company. If you have a product or service to offer, chances are people are searching for it online.

It doesn’t matter if your business is B2B or B2C, all businesses need to make sure their client base can find them when needed, and SEO consultants make that possible.

Due to their competitive positions, key demographics and propensity to influence consumer searches, the following businesses tend to receive the highest ROI from SEO:

Startups and Small Businesses

Businesses with limited brand awareness, resources, and revenue can use SEO to gain an edge over larger competitors by targeting smaller niches within shared demographics. SEO also reduces strain on budgets, yet still provides room to scale.

Professional Service Companies

Did you know? 97% of users search for business online. Therefore, any company that offers customized, knowledge-based services to clients, like IT consultants, financial planners, accounts, consultants, healthcare professionals and lawyers can reach their target audiences more effectively with local SEO.

Home Repairs / Renovation Businesses

People in need of renovations and repairs will search for the nearest businesses, which is why these companies should target customers in their service areas with local SEO. HVAC maintenance, roofing, electricians, plumbers, and builders can use SEO to dominate their service areas.

Real Estate

Real estate is all about location, and search engine optimization ensures these businesses better serve their clients looking for property in specific areas. SEO can optimize a realtor’s presence for towns, cities, zip codes and even property types.


SEO consulting can connect manufacturing businesses with a new age of B2B buyers and help acquire more qualified leads. Getting on the first page of Google search results pages remains a key priority for manufacturers and industrial companies that seeking to reach more customers online.


Search engine optimization boosts eCommerce sales and revenue. SEO consultants ensure products rank higher, and display the right way, so potential customers can find the products they need, and make repeat purchases, transforming from leads to loyal customers.

SaaS Companies

While SaaS companies may have exceptional products, they can have a hard time marketing them to the right audience. However, leveraging SEO strategies can boost brand awareness and help new software companies capture their market share.
