Dealing with Additional Client Budget

One of the participants of Hump Day Hangout Episode 53 ( is concerned about requesting for additional budget from clients.

The exact question was:

“Most of the services I use to rank my clients’ websites are subscription based. So that means that I need to keep paying them every month to maintain my rankings.

However, I’ve noticed that when I start working on a new client’s site, the first 4 to 6 months rankings skyrocket but then reach a plateau.

My problem is that I don’t have any more budget to create more links so I now need to tell my clients that if they want to rank even higher, they need to invest more money.

What would the solution be to avoid that kind of situation?

Should I stop renting links completely to reallocate that budget to create new FCS networker /GSA links each month??”
