A good analogy for building a web site is that it's like building a house. If you were to ask a contractor how much would it cost me to build a custom house, the contractor would probably have a bunch of questions for you. For example, what kind of house do you want? A rambler, colonial, detached, row house, split-level? That would be a high-level question.
The cost of online marketing (much like the cost of a web site) is very specific to what your goals are, what industry you're in, the strength of your competitors, your current ranking ability, the size and online marketing proficiency of your in-house team, and a myriad other factors that come into play when pricing out a complex range of services. That's right... online marketing is not just one service.
Many people think that it's an "either-or" decision when it comes to Pay Per Click (PPC) marketing versus Search Engine Optimization (SEO). The truth is that SEO and PPC have a symbiotic relationship that you'd do well to recognize. PPC provides rather immediate results, and while it takes quite a while to really optimize a PPC campaign and figure out which keywords provide the best ROI, it's quite possible to not only learn a lot about your target keywords fairly quickly (which are duds, and which generate online sales), but also to run a profitable campaign.
