This definitely is no surprise at all. Being your neighbor in Australia, I deal with the every day people that think they know it all and that SEO doesn't work (Australia is very new to this market). Using all that feedback and the rejections, the best way to approach them is to apply basic terminology. Having done that, it has worked and people are slowly coming around to it.
In what why do I mean: "You have X, and thousands of people are searching for X. SEO is about bringing people to your website for X when they type it in the search engines. I have looked in the search engines for the term X, and X related words, you are no where to be found!"
With that approach, it really gets people thinking. You might want to provide some data to support your claim. A good way to do this is to have a short keyword list of say 5 keywords and their predicted search volume (state where you get your data). Then you may want to have a report showing where they stand for those keywords in 3 search engines, to point out that they have NO presence. This is a short proposal but it works!
I hope that helps.

Funny, we just lost a bid to that very company at that very price for a full redesign of an ecommerce site plus SEO. (No wait, they actually bid $4000 not 5!

In a company that operates like that, there are 3 stages in the client lifecycle: Loves us, Distrusts us, Suing Us.

If they knew who you really were though Jill (with all your experience on the subject) I think they will most definately kick themselves in a few months time... Experienced people generally get much more done within the allocated time. Nuff said.
