Let me start be stating the obvious: We're already miles ahead because you're actively examining and considering marketing, the lack of which has been one of the major downfalls of Steem, Hive, etc. So... YAY for that!
Marketing is a long term commitment. But it can have psychological value as well as tangible value in that marketed projects tend to send a message that they are serious about what they are doing, and not just dabbling.
SEO is a great tool but should be placed into the greater perspective that many web users are "browsers" rather than "searchers." On top of which, most people actually don't know exactly what they are looking for, except in very general terms.
Lastly, if your project has a CLEAR VISION, it's really important to keep firmly in mind that marketing (and SEO) needs to serve the project and not end up in an inverse position where the project serves the marketing and ends up being a "caricature" of what it set out to become.
So, the cost is $18K. And I see a bunch of tools and potential promises. What is the quantitative objective of this investment in LeoFinance's future?
Looking forward to more!
