About buying SEO texts and working hours
Working hours are a standard that is used worldwide in almost all industries to monetarily value the work of a particular company or person.
However, this does not mean that all agencies work with a stopwatch at their side to measure exactly how long each task takes.
The people who are part of a company have a preparation behind years and months that, probably, is worth much more than any price that the market places.
It is that preparation, study and experience that allows experts to make the right decisions and do quality work.
If we go to a doctor for a discomfort that has been affecting us for months and he manages to identify exactly what we have in the first 10 minutes of consultation, how does this make us feel?
At the end of the day, we will already know what to do or what medicine to take to cure ourselves.
If that query costs, say, $300, are we paying you for the 10 minutes or for your insights that helped pinpoint the problem quickly?
Does this mean that the doctor’s hour of work would be priced at $1,800?
Probably not, but we are sure that the preparation and experience of a specialist can cost much more than that.
The same thing happens in other industries that exist worldwide.
Clarified this point, we are going to detail the first of the products to be delivered in each SEO content campaign.
How much does a content plan cost and what is it for?
To create a content plan requires, on average, about 12 hours of work .
Therefore, these would be the prices per region:
Precios content plan - Tarifas por región Región Promedio Norteamérica (EE.UU) $1200 - $1800 Europa $900 - $1200 Latinoamérica $720
The content plan ( content plan ) is the roadmap that will tell us what SEO texts to create, according to the goals we are pursuing.
What is it for? Why is it so necessary?
The answers to those two questions are in the article we referenced above: Content Marketing for Organic Positioning (SEO) .
Now, what does this plan include?
-The core message (essential message) of your business.
-The objectives of the company.
-An overall marketing strategy.
-The analysis of your competition.
-Ideas about relevant content for your customers.
-The answers to all the questions that your potential consumers have or will have.
In this video you can go a little deeper on each point:
Next, we also leave you a template in case you want to create your own content plan:
It should be noted that, in the end, the agency must prepare this roadmap hand in hand with the client.
It is he who must provide the corresponding information to, together with the SEO provider, design the map to follow.
Remember that no one knows a business better than its owner: he knows what his users’ concerns are and also knows the best way to respond to them.
1.- Set aside one or two days to create the content plan together with your agency. In this way, both parties will be on the same page and have a clear strategy.
2.- Strengthen your brand: to create the content plan , you need to know who you are and where you want to go. If you have no idea what your core message is , your objectives and your vision as a company, it means that your brand is not clear and that your business is probably not well defined.
3.- Do not underestimate this roadmap. All successful marketing strategies have been thought out: they were not random arrows shot into the sky.
Methodology to position SEO texts on the web
On average, writing an SEO text takes about 6 hours , which includes the following stages:
Backed by data , at Pencil Speech we prioritize quality over quantity.
Therefore, I will explain the importance of writing deep SEO text, before showing you how we do it.
If you want to skip this part and go straight to the process an agency uses to write an SEO copy, click here .
At Pencil we started a content campaign in January 2019 and to date, June 2021, we have published around 30 articles.
Could we write more?
Of many topics that we have already explored, we could have gotten 2 or 3 small pieces, but that would not have brought us visits or high rankings in Google.
Instead, we decided to make deep SEO copy that could rank for various industry keywords.
Pro Tip :
Thanks to the Table of Content Plus plugin , you will achieve that your texts are located on the first page of Google for many terms. Why? Because this tool will make each subtitle of your pieces become, in the eyes of search engines, a mini-article. (You can find a longer and more detailed explanation of this here ).
Due to the way the Google algorithm works, we are sure that we would not have achieved the results we have so far if we did not dedicate all the time and effort necessary to each of our pieces.
Time and effort are two of the variables that Google takes into account when positioning an article. The more attention you pay to these two factors, the better off you will be. At Pencil we made a guide on how to write perfect SEO content so that it ranks in Google? You can read it, or save it, by clicking on the link.
Now, what numbers did we get with the content campaign mentioned above?
Better to write a few high-quality articles than many low-quality articles (Case Study 2020)
From January 18, 2019 (date of publication of the first text) to March 25, 2020, we had 1,407,580 impressions on Google and 13,321 clicks to our website.
What do these numbers mean?
That in more than a million occasions different users around the world found our site and in more than 13,000 opportunities one of those people entered our portal.
It is as if we had delivered a million pamphlets to consumers interested in SEO and with that we had managed to get more than 13,000 potential customers to enter our store.
In addition to this, we receive qualified leads from: Spain, Canada, Panama, United States, Guatemala, Argentina and Venezuela.
Which means that of those 13,000 people who entered our store, several asked for prices.
Now imagine the numbers you could have in your industry.
How many people would you reach?
How many users do you need to buy your product or service for you to be financially free?
Only in the month of April 2019, our article How much does it cost to position a website in Google? it had 7,600 impressions and 75 clicks.
For June 2021, the article How much does it cost to position a website in Google? It has already generated, since its publication (January 18, 2019), +900,000 impressions and +20,000 clicks .
Process: How do you write an SEO text?
At Pencil we use two modalities to build a client’s SEO texts.
Modality #1: Pencil Speech handles all content creation
In this category is that the 6 hours per article fall.
Because we must go through the entire creative process to deliver a quality text.
What does that process consist of?
Step One: Research
Once we know the topic to develop, we must find out everything related to it.
To do this, we will have to:
1.- Interview the subject-matter expert : sit down with the client, extract all the information necessary to write the article, obtain figures, evaluate case studies, learn about examples and understand the company’s procedures (1 SEO hour) .
2.- Gather reliable sources : group the most authoritative voices in the industry so that they validate and give credibility to everything we are going to write (1 SEO hour) .
Google attaches great importance to this point.
It is not the same for a company that is starting to affirm something without anyone validating it, as for that same company to rely on a brand that has been in the industry for 35 years.
We must rely on other experts to give credibility and authority to our text .
Second step: Planning
After we have all the information ( background ), we must organize it and create an outline of the points that the article will touch (1 SEO hour) .
What should be the introduction? How many edges will the text address? Will you have conclusions or recommendations?
As soon as all the above questions are answered, we can move forward.
Third step: Writing
After spending about 2-3 hours working, we started to write.
In this section, we transform the information that we have collected and organized into a text that is pleasant for users and for Google (1-2 SEO hours) .
The idea is not to confuse people with technical terms that do not help them solve their problems.
Therefore, it is advisable to write in the simplest and most friendly way possible.
In this way, Google will position the client for years with an article that will only need to be updated very occasionally.
In this step, we take advantage of and place all the links, images and infographics that the text requires.
Remember that presenting content in a unique way is paramount.
Fourth step: Edition and publication
Here begins the carpentry work.
The editor must correct all spelling issues and adapt to the company’s style (1-2 SEO hours) .
In addition you have to make sure that all links work and correct possible errors.
When the article is ready to publish, with the Yoast SEO plugin the editor will do the following:
-Write the title tag.
-Create the meta description.
-Edit the slug (the final part of the URL).
Once verified that everything is ready, the content is published .
Modality #2: the client creates the article with the recommendations of the agency and Pencil Speech edits, optimizes and publishes
With this option, the client saves half the hours (3 instead of 6).
In this way, the company that contracts the SEO services undertakes to deliver the texts, according to the times of the editorial calendar, so that they can be edited and adapted for the web:
-As we have commented previously, the majority of Internet users do not read, but rather scan.
-We cannot use long paragraphs and we must answer important questions as soon as possible.
In conclusion, only the fourth step of the previous modality would be carried out .
Here is an article explaining how it can take up to 8 hours to write a piece of 2000 or more words: https://www.rankxl.com/how-long-to-write-a-blog-post/

Conclusion: cheap is expensive
Kari DePhillips, owner of The Content Factory , explains how much it costs to write professionally for the web world .
In his text he tells a very interesting anecdote about when he investigated the amount that professional writers in the United States charged for writing the content of a landing page .
The range he was able to determine was between $1,000 and $25,000 per page.
The interesting thing, however, came when one person said that he charged $100 to do the same job.
Many colleagues were upset and replied with data that reinforced why it was wrong to quote so low.
One of the most striking examples was the following:
In the end, you can probably get “good SEO texts” at much lower prices than what we talk about here.
Remember, however, that what you pay is what you will receive.
You can’t expect to dominate Google with unprofessional, credible work.
These articles may turn out to be the most important investment you make in your digital marketing efforts.
Think about it and make the best decision.
