Let’s Talk Pricing

How much does social media consulting cost?

If you’re looking for strategic knowledge, someone to give you expert advice and guidance expect to pay an hourly rate of $75-$150 an hour. 

How much does a social media package cost?

Most of our clients have customized social media packages where they use various services each month based on their needs. Our packages are a flat monthly fee based on a thorough assessment of your unique goals and needs. We focus on outcomes, not hours. Our clients with customized social media packages pay a monthly retainer fee with flexible scopes of work. You can expect to pay $2,000-$4,000/monthly, which does not include ad spend.

Do I have to sign a contract?


A contract protects both Keep it Real Social and our clients. Beyond being legal mumbo jumbo, it outlines expectations and keeps us both on the same page. We require a contract for all of our retainer clients and ask for a minimum six-month commitment. After six months, the contract automatically renews and is ongoing until a 30-day notice of termination. Our agency reviews packaging pricing for each client in six-month cycles to ensure the time, talent, and services are aligning with the scope of work.

Do contracts include exclusivity?

It feels funny for us to work with a client in the same industry and geographic region. Our contract states explicitly: “KRS has no other agreements with any other party that would conflict with this Agreement.”

We go with our gut and will always have a conversation with a client if we are not sure they’re a competitor.

Is ad spend included in a social media package fee?

No. We recommend clients use their ad accounts and set up their payment methods for transparency. We do create and manage ads, but it is a separate budget for each client.
