How to find individuals providing SEO services for blogs, not firms.

Looking for some advice on SEO. Currently, we are paying about $1500 a month for SEO work, but the only value I see is the SEO on 10 content pieces per month we write in-house; not something we should spend $1500 a month on.

How do I find an individual for SEO work? Google only gets me firms that view us as either too small of a client/scope of work, or try to upsell us on site revamps/diagnostics that I don't need.

    Hey Calvin,

    You can certainly piece together parts of the content marketing machine for cheaper, but maybe not a whole lot. I've paid my writers $40-90 per article but it requires myself or a VA to get it uploaded and promoted.

    I don't know how complicated/technical your content is but happy to help where I can.

    I do SEO, manage a portfolio of sites, and also have friends who run affiliate sites and agencies in the cannabis industry.

    Happy to help where I can. Just shoot me a msg.

    Unless you have a really big and complex website the best option would be to learn how to do SEO yourself.

    $1500/month for on page SEO only is crazy high! They should at least do some (white hat) link building.

    I've heard good things about the folks at https://www.yourgrowthmachine.com/blog who specialize in exactly this.

    Good luck!

    I'd be interested to chat. I'm creating SEO software targeted to blog owners, and not larger businesses.

    It would be great to get an understanding of exactly your situation, both so I can learn and also so I could do my best to advise you on how I feel you should move forward with SEO.

    I've been in the industry for 10+ years, and it is REALLY tough finding someone to rely on for SEO.

    You can get me on [email protected] - I'd love to chat.

    I'd ask your firm to lower prices until you see a return. They're probably good. Just asking too much.
