  1. Thank you everyone for watching! I hear a lot of people in the industry say hourly pricing is a bad idea which is simply not true. If you can price your services at $100 an hour you can get someone better than you to do the work for $25 – $30 giving you margin for scale. A huge PRO as well is the client understands exactly what they are paying for, there is no secret as to what you did that month.

  2. Ruan, you promised some time ago that you would share what program/tools you use to create your websites.

    I have been struggling to find a good builder that has the speed and ease of use to efficiently build multiple sites.

    Thank you for all the information that you have shared in all of your videos.

  3. Thanks Ruan, you are the best in SEO. Quick question Ruan, am from Nigeria a country in Africa, what is the minimum amount of money I should charge for an SEO client, and how do I get SEO client for my agency?

  4. Yaaayyy! 😊😊😊 Super incredibly helpful- the time tracking per project is absolutely genius!!! 🤩🤩🤩

    Always excited when you post new content! Keep up the great work, Ruan!!!👏🏾👏🏾👏🏾

    Question: For client monthly reporting, do you include the Time Doctor Tracking Report as part of the "Full Month of Reporting" or more as an "Per Client Request" ordeal- if they ask??? 🤔🤔🤔

  5. I've heard others on YouTube say that you shouldn't do hourly pricing, that you should do value based pricing.

    Essentially you ask the client how much value the website or the SEO service will bring them. Then you price your service based on a percentage of that. So if a website and SEO will bring in 30 more customers a month, and they get $5,000 extra revenue as a result. 5×12=60k. Then you charge 12k, or something like that.

    They say that in hourly pricing, the incentive is wrong. For example: You have a seasoned web designer that can complete a website in 3 hours. So you bill the 3 hours. But if you have a new web designer and he doesn't know much, he take 15 hours to complete. You make more money on the new one vs the seasoned vet. So it wouldn't be in your best interest to hire top talent because they cost more money and bring you less revenue.

    Similarly, the opposite effect can be true. A task such as designing a logo might take 1 hour to complete, and cost the client $100 dollars. They might feel your company is of low quality because they believe logos should cost $500 or $1,000. Some of the higher end logo designers charge $10,000. So either the client thinks the logo is low quality, or the logo designer didn't spend enough time on the logo.

    How do you deal with those issues on an hourly pricing model?
