SEO is most frequently sold as a monthly retainer and the typical cost that New Zealand based SEO agencies charge is $500 to $5,000 per month. As you can see, this varies significantly and depends on several factors.
Before establishing a fee for a business, typically an SEO agency or SEO freelancer will look at your existing brand recognition and visibility in organic searches, business goals, target demographic, and competition among many other things to determine the work involved and put together a price.
Pricing also relies on the skill of the SEO provider, how they value their services, and what they can provide for you - as with many things in life, you get what you pay for most of the time.
Most SEO services are completed on a monthly retainer price model, however, there are consultants and those who can provide specific services related to SEO or hourly based pricing.
Here’s a summary of the average key pricing points for SEO services in NZ:
|SEO Service Type:||Cost (Monthly)|
|Cheap SEO (Be careful)||$250-$350|
