What is the SEO pricing in Malaysia?

How much does SEO cost in Malaysia?

Why is it hard to estimate SEO cost?

This is often the million dollar question we hear everyday from business owners and managers. The answer quite frankly is always different. Every business is different and the need varies.

A good example would be: if you sell a generic products with a worldwide consumer target, you should expect to spend more on SEO services. However,  if you offer online services to a local target audience then you should expect a lower SEO cost.

The marketing goal of the two businesses in the example above defers and it would require a different strategy to tackle each. SEO encapsulates a lot of services which can help you gain more organic traffic, better user experience and increased conversion.

With that said, Its arguable to say that SEO pricing in Malaysia can be based on these few factors.

SEO Pricing Determinant

Competitive landscape

A lot of industries are very competitive and thus would mean a lot more competitors in the space. Some might have a deeper budget to hire a few SEO to work on their website, such as Insurance or real estate. On the other side of the spectrum, some  industries are late to adopt SEO and would be easy for you get a good ranking with a relatively cheaper SEO pricing.

Marketing Goal

If you are targeting worldwide consumer base as compared to a consumers in a small town, there will be a difference in the pricing.  If you are sell one product, as compared to 500 products, your SEO pricing should differ. I hope you get the picture now.

Services Offered

What SEO services will you be getting, would it cover the on-site, off-site and technical aspect of SEO. Standard SEO will include all the above mentioned, with more focus to the areas your website is lacking. It should come with an easy to digest monthly reporting.

SEO experience 

An SEO experience also plays a part. some SEO have braved the constant storm of Google updates and came out with a big grin. Those are the type of SEO are on expensive side of the spectrum.
