Many ecommerce clients are taken back by the retainer or pricing if they are newly inquiring about an SEO campaign or paid search campaign. However, the goal of any e-commerce consultant worth their salt is to continue to show a higher return on investment with time. Much of the work involved in an SEO campaign for example is very strenuous and daunting the first couple of months as traffic and revenue do not reflect much of a change. Please browse our case studies of ecommerce clients and you can see a traffic spike typically around month 4 or 5 that continues to explode. It’s imperative that we chose a retainer or monthly campaign block of hours that is relative to your existing revenue and allows enough bandwidth to scale your business.
