Boutique Online Business Development

What we do and how we do it…

A lot of people visit our website and then contact me to ask if the online marketing consultant rates and fees being charged to them are fair. While price is often the first concern, sequencing is often not thought about.

Would it be terrible to offer what seems to be a higher rate, when in fact, it is for properly timed services? So you don’t eventually learn through mistakes, nor waste precious time, or tie-up cashflow?

I’m always honest with my clients and want to state that my hourly and project fees are not the cheapest “out there.” Fees in this industry vary just as much as they do in your own. When making your decision to hire a consultant or to contract work to be done, you need to take a lot of factors into account, some of which are listed below.

How We Work With Our Clients
We work with our clients to assess their real marketing needs and to help them make a plan according to their business model, industry competitiveness, and the factors listed above.

There is no “one size fits all” for online marketing plans.  and, therefore, it would be hard for me to lay out a full fee rate for your specific needs. But, I am giving you an example of what you could expect to be charged by an online marketing consultant. Keep in mind the following about my fees:

Marketing_Consultant_Salary__United_States_Years of Experience

Doing a search online for “Online Marketing Consultant Salary” you’ll find the range is anywhere from $36,000 to over $200,000 a year. You can see one sample here:

What do you think is one of the biggest differentiating factors that determine what you should be paying? Yes, years of experience.

The salary of someone with two years experience will be much lower on this spectrum than that of an experienced consultant with five, ten or fifteen years experience. The consultants hours or project fees will be reflect in their prices.

The best will have had experience in other fields of business as well, thus enhancing their understanding of strategic development of your site as well as the specific skills needed in an ever-evolving field.

Level of Expertise Needed For Work Required

What your business needs at this time should drive the levels of expertise you seek.

Are you looking for a new website, re-design of an existing website, help with your online sales efforts, or looking for a manager for the paid-per-click campaign?

Maybe you are looking to launch a new internet business and need a consultant to help walk you through the ins and outs of starting a successful internet business? Perhaps you are up and running and now recognize you need someone to coach you on how to mange your own online presence and all the caveats of that today?

All of these types of work require different levels of expertise and factor into the hourly or project rate you will pay for online marketing help.

How Quick Does Work Need To Be Completed

Speed and immediacy is also a factor. If you are looking to have a project turned around quickly or do you have time to work within the consultants schedule Expect to pay a premium if you need a quicker than usual turnaround time.

Length/Size of Contract Between Both Parties

Larger projects usually come at a discount, as does a relationship that is going to be longer term. A new website by itself may cost you more than a contract to design the same website and have a monthly maintenance contract with the consultant to help improve your SEO efforts.
