Digital Cornerstone, a freelance UK based SEO consultant explains the true cost of SEO. The cost of SEO services is always a topic of much deliberation amongst SMBs and eCommerce website owners. Most businesses feel that their agencies are overcharging them. Very few business owners understand that SEO takes time to generate results, especially if it is a new business or a business that needs a complete revamp. But the fact is that the fees can vary depending on the size and/or complexity of the SEO project. SEO costs in the UK can start from a few hundred dollars per month to tens of thousands for one to two years.

Sometimes, it is not just paying for the services. It is also about making decisions so that the website achieves optimal results on the search engines while improving its organic growth. The process may involve changing the current website design or the platform. A well-established agency or a freelance UK SEO consultant must divert these tasks to suitable professionals. This means incurring additional costs to hire these experts. And there is content optimization wherein expert writers are brought into the picture. They are responsible for providing unique, business-specific, and Google-worthy content that gives the website a much-needed boost.

So, how much does an SEO service cost? As mentioned earlier, it all depends on the size and nature of the project and business requirements. A simple on-page optimization or a content writing service might start from Pound 500 and can go up to Pound 1000 per month. A more complex project including social media marketing or link building can go up to Pound 10,000 per month. SMBs and eCommerce stores don't have to be alarmed looking at these costs. Discussing various options with the SEO consultant before jumping to conclusions is always better. A professional consultant can always draft a more customized strategy based on the needs and budget of the business.

There are several agencies that charge by the hour but not all of them follow the same rates. Some consultants can complete the task in just a few hours while others might take extra time. The costs also depend on the experience and the skill needed to complete the project. The average cost starts from Pound 2000 and can go up to Pound 4000 with an average being Pound 7000 per project. The most important thing to remember here is that most SEO agencies operate with high overhead costs, which is why their charges are higher compared to SEO specialists or freelance consultants. Digital Cornerstone does not leverage margins or operate on overhead costs. The projects are carried out by an in-house content and outreach team, so their costs are affordable and competitive.
