    Hello fellow BHers

    So I recently started a firm in my country. The idea is to consult with smaller bloggers and smaller businesses, basically tell them what they're doing wrong and so on and advice them on how to improve.

    The idea is golden, since I can then branch out to offer them other services (SEO, traffic and such).

    The thing is though, how can I find a good way to contact bloggers. I am considering Facebook Ads and Adwords (My webhost offers me 100USD free adwords so...)
    But what should I target, for example on Facebook.

    Note that while my site will be in English, I will still primarily focus on clients in my own country, since I want to have a more personal relationship with my clients and work closely with them.

    Also just a secondary question, I was thinking of helping some of my clients with ads, so that they can make money. Would there be an ad network that allows a firm to do this? As it feels that AdSense would ban my ass if I tried to suddenly add like a 100 new sites.

    Thanks for any help and advice you may have. I always find the best tips here on BHW.

    You feel like adsense would ban you If you suddenly 100 sites. Getting 100 paying clients is hard to get quickly. So you won't be adding them suddenly

    Your best bet is offline marketing to local business.

    Every blogger in the world get's a couple dozen spam messages a day advertising SEO services, so reaching out to them online is nearly impossible (and expensive).

    And don't put clients on your AdSense account. One of them will eventually break Google's ToS and you'll be banned.

    Charge them consultation fees to help them setup their own accounts.

    Yeah but I will focus on smaller bloggers in my country, they don't get this type of spam. I did find some good sites to advertise one, just gotta get the cash for it now..Which is a huge problem.

    But for local business I was thinking I just start by using newspapers and those Ad monitors in stores. Once again, just gotta find the money for it first.
