How to price yourself out the market?
You may not know this but a lot of people who outsource work to say Asia do it because they can’t afford to hire native people for example most SEO only make sales of between $0 to $2000 a month so if you are expecting to charge say more money as native people most people will not hire to you .
Here how this story started an Indian group contacted me offering me SEO services which are more expensive than if I hire out to a British based SEO services since I could get all the services they offer very easy from India for like 5% of the costs or from British SEO agency for around 25% to 50% less if you are wanting to charge people more than the native people no one will generally want to hire your group the point of outsourcing is to save money nothing else .
In a Western country these costs which are way bigger than most other countries in Asia or other poorer themed countries normally
Rent or mortgage cost
Food or drinks
Government related things
That means if someone has to pay someone $1000 on expenses out of $2000 that only leaves $1000 for other things such as say $500 for SEO services and say $500 profit so that it, not a lot of money if your other expenses go up meaning if you are charging the same as a Western company or more they will probably not outsource to you since you killed over the attraction to save money.
If you come from money such as rich parents then paying $10,000 or more for things may seem like small money but if you are not from money then expecting people to pay you big money is not likely to happen.
The costs of rankings up a website have gone up and up as a whole for example 7 years ago you could have ranked up a website for low to medium for like $100 a month now to do the same cost like $2000 a month for SEO services meaning if someone can save say $200 or more a month to outsource to this could allow them to pay native people later on or if they like you enough employ you for more money later on.
The basic costs for SEO work like this on a small scale month bills to pay
Other software costs $50
buying links $200
If you make sales of say $1000-$570=$430 so as you can see here not much money left for things if your link costs go up to more than makes you have just $330 left so as you can see here being a SEO on a small scale is hard so if you can outsource work to be somewhere where you pay someone like $3 a hour or so this can allow you to become successful later on but you want to be paid like $50 hour then Western people will probably not pay you since attraction gone now.
One final bit to add in.
I know a lot of people claim all Western people are millionaires or very rich that is not true plenty of people have big debts or not much money for whatever reasons .
