SEO Request for Proposal RFP

Reading Time: < 1 minute

In my push towards helping to create some standards, demystify search engine optimization and help more and more people get search engine optimization into their marketing budgets, I developed a free SEO RFP template for those seeking search engine optimization services, 12 years ago. As you might imagine, a lot has changed since then, and so I have updated the SEO RFP Template to account for things that you should be considering, today.

SEO Request for Proposal RFP” Comments

  1. LOL your way to nice to your clients. Mind you where I work we have a guarantee so we tell them they have no choice as we have to meet the guarantee, but contract outlines that all 😉

  2. This is very useful. I think it might also include a section on relationships with other subcontractors. A lot of times an SEO project requires working with the original designer who is retained for content updates… and these relationsships can get soooo sticky.

  3. This is very helpful to get clients engaged in what they want and how that will happen. Great way to create expectations. Love your column!

  4. Mark, this template is excellent. Thanks for sharing and making "SEO" a creditable word!

  6. Great proposal. One thing I may add, is what is the anticipated time to see a return on your investment. I always find this useful in deciding a strategy. If I think of anything else will ley you know. Thank you

  7. Great proposal template, very useful.

  8. I would have liked to add:
    – Date of submission of the RFP

    – last date for giving the proposal.
    – Date for decision making and awarding the contract at the customer.
