I'm wondering if anyone can give us an idea on whether it is preferable to have all search optimisation costs totally transparent for a potential client so that when they come onto the website they see exactly what the costs involved are.
Alternatively are clients happy to request more information from a company with only a rough idea of the likely costs?
Some search companies seem to offer fixed price projects that they apply to all projects. I'm not convinced by this so am looking to get some feedback here :-)
Hope that make sense!
I'd be grateful for any feedback.

hi, Andrew, how are you?
I'd do a bit of both. eg. you could provide pricing options for audits, reports, etc & leave full projects to be price specced.
I hope that helps!

I think having fixed price for all the projects is wrong, because that doesn't make any sense for different websites and different keywords.

Why not have a starter pack price... which could be zero!
Then, once they have experience your wisdom you can sound out their position in the evolutionary chain and price accordingly.
I was with a customer today who reminisced about their first agency job where he proudly took his priced up pitch to the powers that be and was told to stick a nought on the end so not to offend the client!
