Question about charging for updating blog posts

I apologize if this isn’t the right place, but I’m struggling with how to charge a client. This is on a WordPress site.
I was asked to quote how much it would cost to post a blog post on an established blog page while also doing the SEO optimizations for the post. They would provide the content for the post. I would be doing about 3-4 posts a month.
My initial thought was charging my hourly rate, but with knowing it was going to be only 3-4 a month, do I go the retainer route…or per blog post route?
This is a large digital marketing and media company and I am just starting to contract out with them…so I’m hoping this could lead to bigger projects with them, so I don’t want to screw this up.
Does anyone have experience in this or can offer some advice?
Thanks in advance!

  1. How much to charge is completely up to you. How you charge is also up to you, but if the amount of work is going to be roughly the same each month, then do a retainer (allocate 1 day per month, for example). Otherwise, just say it will be a fixed cost, e.g. 2 hours x your hourly rate.
