SEO Packages & Prices

We offer our customers a PYOB (pick your own budget) pricing model.

It’s common knowledge amongst contractors and consultants that when developing fixed-bid proposals it’s necessary to pad the bid – often 2 – 3 times over – to cover unexpected costs in time or money. Those unexpected costs might be extra client meetings and phone calls, multiple revisions, repairs and redos, and software bug fixes, to name the most common.  But sometimes none of that happens. Then what? On a fixed bid, you pay anyway.

This is why we prefer the pay per hour and PYOB (pick your own budget) model. You get what you pay for, and only pay for what you get.

You get what you pay for, and only pay for what you get!

PYOB also gives you high-end services that are normally out of reach, at a price you can afford

What we really love about PYOB – and you should too (besides the fact you get what you pay for) –  is we are not confined to a particular package that is defined by a particular price point. No matter what budget you are on, we’ll pick whatever task we think will give you the best ROI – even if it is a task that we might have otherwise limited to a more expensive package – as long as it fits in within your budget.

How much should you spend on SEO?

It depends on what stands between you and your competition and what the value of a first place position is to you.  Done right, SEO is an investment, not a cost. For example, there are at least 860 searches on average in Google per month for a plumber in San Jose. According to research by Chitika, the first place position in Google gets roughly 31% of the clicks. So how much is 31% of 860 (or 266) phone calls a month worth to you? We’ll ask you to figure out that piece, then we’ll do the research and tell you honestly what we think is possible for you. If we don’t feel we can get you a positive return on your SEO investment, we’ll tell you.

Rank is great. Phone calls are better.

Being #1 definitely has its advantages, but you can have all the web traffic in the world and if your website is a turn-off, then you’ve wasted your SEO dollars. So never hire an SEO because their price is right! Hire them because they deliver results. And to do that, they need skills in marketing, content writing, analytics, research, and much more. Kat & Mouse brings all those skills to the SEO table to get you results.

Pick your own budget – PYOB

Here’s how our pricing works. We start with a low fixed price. That assures us we have enough budget to get a stake in the ground and a foundation that will start to work for you. (You can see those foundations below.) Then you buy blocks of hours to be used within a month – and we really do use up that time. SEO is never ending so we don’t stop until the clock does.

The more hours you purchase at one time, the cheaper they are.
