A Hypothetical Question

Just throwing out some numbers:
1-2k for a website usability touchup (and possibly content added)
2-3k for optimisation
2k for paid inclusion in top directories and sites
3k for PPC, spread over 3 months
This will obviously vary wildly depending on the site and niche, but I'll throw that out just to get people flaming me

The reality is in general can do around 15-20 websites for the amount you have mentioned if the work is outsourced offshore. Well if i am in USA, the process splitting will be identical to Ian's.
Website Usability Analysis, Search Engine Friendly Re-Design or Re-development, Content Development, Link Building, PPC etc. The timeline also varies depending on the market, If keyword is like "britney spears". After finishing the work i will move to a new office with more facilities!!

I won a job over that amount not long ago and let me just say, that that was quite sparing now that I am conducting some of the tasks that just aren't going to plan and burning up more of my time than expected. A five page website, yep, a real website with many many pages, and the same results......questionable.
To the question though.....I am like Ian....I would divide the money up into make believe SEO for my own site and be sitting in Tahiti or somewhere thinking about it all for when I return.

New to this forum. Just developed a site and soon to get started on some internet marketing with a budget of 5-10K. (a newbie to doing business online) I noted the original question to read 10K for SEO and "Internet Marketing" What about any $ allocated to affiliate marketing and/or banner deveolpment and advertising. Or are these avenues a waste of marketing $ .
2nd question: Would link building be a part of the $ spent on SEO, or a separate animal

If you are sure the site is primed to convert, you might look into paid directories and other "permanent" links from respected sources that will boost your link popularity then invest in a PPC campaign both for traffic and to test the most profitable keywords you want to target.
Now if it's an inheritance... I'm headed to Europe! Get me a Eurailpass and a map...

Banner advertising is not much effective now.Text links are much more effective and can add to PR also.

SEM stuff generally pays off pretty quickly. Investments here aren't typically big judgment calls. But website upgrades are a much harder sell.

$10k isn't a lot, especially if you are just starting out and have to buy inventory (the widgets you sell), fit out an office (desks, computers etc) or actually have the site designed. So what you really need to do is work out where you are weakest (it could even be in business management, thus the money would be better spent on a business course at a college).
Have a look at not only your businesses soft points, but your own. An education lasts forever, and is well worth the money spent.
