Education

The most difficult part of an SEO/Client relationship is that the client has no understanding of SEO. The best thing you can do is educate your client from the very beginning. Give your client a basic understanding of SEO. This foundation will allow them to understand the research you have put into their niche, how you are helping them get a jump on competition, how the process works so they do not become impatient.

Being honest will go a long way. Let your clients know everything from strategy to pricing. It is important that your client understand why you are doing what you are doing. Be specific. Explaining things can really help them understand concepts as well as why you approach SEO in a spefic way  and why you are hcarging what you are charging. It will also help them appreciate your service and how you do business.
