I clearly remember the day me and my business partner started PlacementSEO. The days of telling ourselves that a “X” amount of customers paying 500.00 per month would allow us to pay ourselves an actual self sustaining salary. Does that style of thinking seem familiar? Generating more than half a million dollars in revenue our first year in business it’s always fun to take a moment to reflect on how me and Gary made it this far with our agency, and how we continue to grow quickly to this day.
Looking back and reflecting on our success is what has inspired me to write this post as I want to share with those of you who are getting started in the SEO business how to work towards landing your first client at a decent monthly retainer. That’s right, a retainer. For those of you who have little to no experience in running your own SEO agency I want to offer you hope, hope that you CAN get clients on a monthly contract retainer at a price much more than just a few hundred bucks per month. In this blog post, I’m going to tell you exactly how we did it at PlacementSEO, which lead to retainers that continue to pay in tens of thousands of dollars per month.
