This is completely my personal point of view and my personal roadmap to content writing.
When someone gets to know that I am an SEO Consultant, I frequently get asked this question about how to become a content writer in Nepal. In this blog we will discover ways and roadmap to becoming a content writer in Nepal and earning through it.
A Content Writer is basically someone who writes. But when we talk about SEO, writing is not quite easy. When I say this, it’s not even tough, but there are few technicalities that someone needs to understand before diving into content writing. For me personally, content writing is one of the ways to dive into the Digital Marketing field. If you think you can write, if you come with a good communication skill and you are interested in Digital Marketing(which is not a compulsion), then you can start your career as a Content Writing.
How to start a career as a content writer in Nepal?
Content writing has been more like a freelancing job for the past few years. Only a few years now when companies started hiring content writers as a job. Mostly every company now hires a content writer as a job. So starting a career has been a little or more easy. However, I would suggest you start freelancing first. For freelancing, you can join Fiverr, UpWork or Freelancer and sign up as a content writer. Later, as you gain experience, you can look for professional job careers as well.
How much do content writers earn in Nepal?
What I believe is, someone who’s engaged in the digital world as a professional doesn’t limit himself to a given sum of money. There are ways to expand and earn more. However, talking about a normal salary as a content writer, companies normally pay Rs. 20,000 to Rs. 40,000 per month. But if you are a freelancer, you get paid per word. The normal pay is around Rs. 1 to Rs. 3 depending upon your experience and portfolio.
What is the qualification for Content Writer?
There’s no bar as a qualification for content writer. But one must have good writing skills. Little or more knowledge of digital marketing/SEO is a plus point. You need to learn where and how to place keywords within the content.

Till now we read about how to become a content writer in Nepal. Given below is more in-depth knowledge about becoming a good content writer, it’s technicalities and road map.
Technicalities You Need To Know
- Keywords :
- Understanding what Keywords are
- Understanding how keywords are placed and how they matter the quality of content
- Understanding ways to place keywords inside a content
- Plagiarism and Tools
- Understanding about plagiarism and its impacts on content
- Understanding about tools to minimize plagiarism
- How to search over a topic or keyword
- How to understand the content and write down
The first and foremost is to understand the above listed technicalities. If you understand and at least have the sound knowledge of above technicalities, you are more than half prepared for what you aspire to be (a content writer).
One of the major qualities in content writing is research. When you start to work as a content writer, you might sometimes need to write content about Skins and Cosmetics, and sometimes about how Apple keeps you away from doctors. A single person would never come with both the knowledge and only way to work on it is to do a thorough research.
When you complete the research and have a clear understanding over the given topic/keywords, you can start writing. I prefer to use Microsoft Words or Google Docs as they come with grammatical suggestions and that is far too completely helpful to understand. In addition, one thing in content writing to do is NEVER COPY. Do not ever copy the content from someone else’s website or if possible within the document itself. Below are a few points to care about when you are writing.
- Avoid keyword stuffing
- Avoid frequent use of same keyword
- Avoid plagiarism
- Specify headings properly
- Structure sentences to be easily readable.
When you think you have completed writing, use online tools to check for plagiarism. In my personal experience, not many online tools give different results, so I prefer using a couple before I declare the content to be plagiarism free. If you find any plagiarism, simply re-write that part of the content. You need to be scared of plagiarism but not completely discard the written content :D.
When you have completely understood these techniques, now you can start freelancing or blogging for yourself. If you wonder how to get jobs as a content writer, I would suggest you to register yourself to freelancing websites and create proper gigs. It will be tough at the beginning, but with time you will start getting jobs.
Content Writing would be a good choice, if you are currently in your college and looking for a part time income to use for yourself. Nevertheless, you can start your career in Digital Marketing and SEO as a Content Writer as it will give you a clear understanding of how contents are optimized and how content matters in Search Engine Optimization.
To sum it up, we have discussed how to become a content writer in Nepal in this article. In addition, I have tried to share more in-depth knowledge about content writing.
What would business seek for? Constant growth, better sales and higher revenues. As the world transforms itself to digitization, your competitors might have already made a better presence online with a great website and high search traffic. If you haven’t already, now is the right time. Here, take a walk-through and read about the importance of SEO for small businesses in Nepal and the importance of overall online presence and higher ranking.
Do you know a study finds that more than 88% of consumers search online for local business and services before visiting the physical store? Yes, it’s overall worldwide data. Nepal is not too late to follow the same trend. Most of Nepalese customers seek for business deals, services and reviews of any business before making a choice. Big businesses are already implementing SEO and have generated more than a hundred thousand visitors per month. No business, if small or large, every business carries it’s own importance looking for a potential customer, targeted revenue generation and better outreach. If you are running any business, now is the perfect time to transform your online presence, rank higher on search engines and ultimately drive high search traffic with high potential conversion to your website.
Looking for correct business has been as easy than ever. Every business seems to have a website, a business profile, social media presence and all. Everyone makes a mistake, thinking that’s all that has to be done. But there’s more SEO optimization, better keyword ranking, optimized content and a great user experience as a whole. Nowadays all big and small business is shifting to the online platforms for better publicity and exposure. No doubt that SEO is crucial for all kinds of business websites. And for small businesses, it’s even more important because they have to let their potential customers know that their business exists and offer quality products and services.
Here I point out major Importance of SEO for Small Businesses in Nepal and why you should choose SEO now.
Reduce the costs of expensive Paid ads
Facebook and Instagram with no doubt, are great marketing platforms to grow your business and generate higher revenues. Ads marketing is great because it let’s you target the exact customer with your desired objective like brand awareness, conversion, store sales and more. But, you need to pay for every click or visitor that comes to your site/store. This increases marketing cost for any business. The same goes for Google ads, it’s even more expensive than Facebook, and we have to pay per click.
Imagine if you have a Skin and Hair Clinic in Kathmandu and you ranked on the first position on, for example, “best skin clinic in Kathmandu” and “best hair clinic in Kathmandu. You don’t need to invest in Google and Facebook Ads because your customers can quickly find you on search results whenever they need. This increases your conversion rate because the customer will find what they look for and exactly when they look for it.
This will reduce your expenses, that you will no more need to run paid ad campaigns. And let me tell you this saves a lot of money for you.
Increase your Website visitors
The main aim of SEO(Search Engine Optimization) is to rank higher on search engines for potential keywords and ultimately increase your website’s visitors. It can be to your home page, product page, blog page, service page, and/or other potential page where you would expect a potential customer to land.
The main aim of SEO for small businesses is to increase their sales. Still, sometimes the objective is to raise brand awareness by driving more traffic to a website for the product/service they want to order or drive the customer to any helpful content, which can help businesses in the long run. Simply it’s called content marketing.
Increase the number of new Leads / Calls / Office visits
Most of the customers today would look for the service or business they are willing to take service from directly on the internet. That place on the internet might be any social media or search engine. That is the reason that every small business in Nepal should implement SEO to their websites. This will result in more website visits and obviously generate better and higher leads. More people can find your business portfolio directly online and contact you with ease.
From fresh vegetables, groceries to hotel and restaurant booking, even doctors and hospital services also can be booked online nowadays in Nepal. We have a habit of searching anything on search engines like Google, Bing, and YouTube to find the desired service or product. Even this Coronavirus lockdown teaches us to find everything on the internet. So SEO is essential for Nepali small businesses thinking to expand online. And 2021 is the perfect time to start implementing SEO to your website.
Imagine when you appear on search results when customers are looking for your products; they are more likely to buy with you because they found you when they needed you. They searched you rather than buying after seeing your paid ad banners, so at this time conversion, chances are high.
That is the reason that people sometimes say that one keyword can change our life.
Increase the number of Sales and Revenue
The goal of optimizing a website and investing in SEO is to increase sales and revenue. SEO can bring visitors to the websites, and we have to convert these visitors into customers, by which we can improve our sales. And more sales obviously means more revenue.
Once you generate the first sale, you can also start implementing other marketing techniques such as email and SMS marketing for your existing customers.
The overall Importance of SEO for Small Businesses in Nepal is that it helps you rank higher on given keywords, drive higher search traffic, increase search volume and directly drive potential customers looking for services or products online to your store or website. This ultimately helps you generate higher revenue, better conversion, quality leads or your potential customer visiting your office.

Yes, SEO agencies can help you achieve what you are looking for, but which company should you choose to get better results?
Most youngsters call themselves SEO experts nowadays after watching videos on YouTube, Udemy, or similar platforms. But it is not as easy as they and probably you are thinking. Everyone needs to understand that SEO is not just about optimizing title, meta tags, and creating backlinks. SEO is way more than that.

At last, If you know any other SEO agency of Nepal which needs to be featured on my blog, feel free to comment down. I will recommend it to my readers after analyzing their service, reviews and previous work results.
Every day I will receive a message/ email and calls from business owners, and the common question everyone asked me is how much does SEO cost in Nepal? How much will you charge to rank us on the first page?
Every business owner wants to be on the first page, in fact, on the first position of Google. But you may have no idea how SEO agencies/experts will calculate SEO price/ cost to get there.
Today in this article, I am going to explain everything about how we SEO experts make pricing for business owners like you to rank your website higher.
Note: I am not going to write here about what is SEO and how it actually helps your business. If you don’t know about it. You can read the importance of SEO for business here.
There are tons of factors that affect SEO price in Nepal. Actually, not only in Nepal but everywhere. Here are some factors that I consider and check before giving the exact price details for my clients.
Keywords generally mean search term on which you want to show your website on top results. Every SEO expert will ask you a list of keywords before telling you the SEO price.
We(SEO Experts) will check the keywords’ difficulty at first, which means who are your competitors, who are ranking on the first page/position on those keywords, how authoritative they are and how they reached there.
After analyzing those things, we will get an idea on which SEO strategy we should follow to win above them, how much optimization we have to do on your website, how many backlinks we have to create to win against them and many more.
Also, the number of keywords that you want to promote plays a vital role in pricing. Simply, the more keywords and their difficulty, the higher the pricing and vice versa.
Timeframe means How soon you want to rank on top positions of search engines. The lesser the time frame, the higher the price because we have to do more optimization on less time frame, more backlinks/ content promotion on less time frame, etc.
As I said, a lesser time frame means a higher price; you may have thought that how fast we can rank on top position. It depends on various things such as your current keyword position, the current level of optimization and more.
Do not expect to rank within a month. As professional SEO experts will always use the White Hat technique to rank a website, you must have patience and give at least three or more months to rank your website.
Careful: never hire someone who says i will rank you top1 within a few days or a month. They may use Black hat techniques, which will affect you in the long run. If you are serious about your business, never hire and buy those services.
Current SEO Status
Current SEO status means how much organic traffic you are getting every month. How trustworthy is your website in the eyes of google? What kind of content are you producing? Are these helpful to your readers?
We check a few things for pricing, such as your years of experience in the business. To make it more transparent, we check whether your website is new in the industry or you’ve been running your website for a long time.
Simply newer, the site higher the cost. It also depends on the keywords you are choosing; if you are new and you are selecting high difficulty keywords or business leader keywords, it might cost you higher. Otherwise, if you are happy to go with long-tail keywords with less difficulty, which we call easier, it will reduce your pricing.
Don’t worry if you have no idea about it. Your SEO expert will suggest to you what keywords you should target first and how you can compete in the long run with high competitive keywords.
The brand value is the most significant ranking factor. You may have seen most of the time; popular brands were ranking well on every search term of their niche.
For example, you may have seen that Nepal’s biggest e-commerce brand, Daraz, is currently ranking well on most of all keywords related to online shopping.
Since we are talking about SEO price in Nepal, we always check how much brand value you have in your niche; who are your competitors? Whether they are the biggest multinational companies or local Nepalese ones.
We also analyze How many peoples know you, how popular you are, and your brand within or outside Nepal. We also check your brand query on search engines, whether people are searching for your business online or not.
Simply, the bigger the brand value lesser the SEO cost, and vice versa.
As I said at the beginning of the article, tons of factors affect SEO cost in Nepal and everywhere. The above mentioned are the most important factors that we never forget before making a customized SEO package for our clients.
Want to know how much you should spend on SEO to rank your website in the top position? Feel free to email me with your website URL and a list of your desired keyword.
So, how much is the best SEO Price in Nepal?
White talking about SEO Price in Nepal, it starts from Rs.10, 000 a month. Most of the freelancers and SEO companies in Nepal charge Rs. 10000 a month for their introductory or starter SEO package.
Because only a few companies are taking SEO seriously, Nepal’s SEO industry is still not much difficult except for the travel and e-commerce industries.
The basic package may include all of the essential SEO activities required to rank your business for a few and less competitive keywords. If you are a small business owner and have fewer keywords to target, you can go with that package.
You can even reduce that cost by hiring freelancers. For example, I charge Rs—10000 per month for both on-page and off-page SEO, including ten keywords. You can find tons of freelancers by just googling Freelance SEO experts in Nepal.
