How Much Will It Cost?
I know it can be very frustrating trying to find out how much SEO costs, and what is included in any costs you can find online. In many ways, the mystery behind SEO still lingers with many SEO agencies over-promising or offering low prices, which if anything can damage your online presence for a very long time.
Each and every client is different and requires a bespoke approach. So a small business website with low competition is going to be at the lower end of our price ranger rather than a large website with many pages in a highly competitive market.
The facts are, none of the tricks which many black hat SEO / Social Media practitioners used a few years back, work any more. The Digital Marketing industry has grown up and now includes content creation, website development, Social Media and Video marketing. (Make sure any Agency you approach also offers this integrated approach).
To give you a detailed cost we need to know the following:
- What is your current situation? (How is your business doing, how is your website performing, and are you a local business, national or international?)
- What are your objectives, what will success look like to you?
- What are your expectations – how quickly to you want to see change?
- Who are your competitors – how competitive is your market?
- Your current content strategy – what platforms are you using?
These are the key elements we need to calculate an actual monthly (or project) cost for your business. We will work with you on a content strategy for your website and social media channels.
Our Packages can include
- Website Updates / Development
- Content Marketing
- Social Media
- Video Marketing
- Video Reporting

Your Business Will Grow and Be Safe With Us
Nobody can guarantee page one positions in Google, so when you see these promises, just walk away. If you get penalised by Google for using dodgy SEO techniques, it is your brand (not the SEO agency) which will suffer.
The facts are, SEO and Social Media takes a long time and is more complicated now. Researching keywords, your market and creating content and media takes time if it is to be done professionally. At Genius Loci, we also create and edit your content for different platforms and audiences.
Are we held in a contract?
No, not at all. We just need one month’s notice to stop.
However, we would recommend a term of at least 3- 6months to really see the benefits. SEO is not a static state, and as your market share increases, it is important to be mindful that your competitors will most likely also increase their SEO spend as well.
