time act, but rather a continuous effort of making the website more visible for SE bots with the idea of getting a higher SERP, we
offer 2.5 hours per week after SEP 18, 2008 for this continuous work as well for further link building in topical websites, blogs,
directories etc.

DigiOptimus takes pride in its CRM. We offer a complete breakdown of actions taken and implementation process. We also point
issues that might make the SEO and SEM campaigns afterwards work smoother. Every step is to be considered with a report
provided and confirmed on by the customer. We do realize that what makes us different in this abundance of SEO consultants,
agencies and freelancers is keeping the customer up to date and involving him in the process of restructuring, optimizing and
getting actual results. All this is done through already set document templates that make it easy for the decision makers to
understand and take and educated decision that would be acted upon.

A part for reporting we will provide a certain level of transfer of knowledge, so the management stuff at Hurbania can have a good
understanding of the whole strategy and the actions taken and to be taken. For that reason we are aiming at 3 days for reporting,
discussions and changes (if found needed).

All rates are based on the standard fee of EUR 35 per man-hour. Except the translation of the website, which is a flat rate fee of
EUR 1,050.00. Please find the suggested budget below!
