    Hey!

    I want to entice potential SEO clients with a free of charge 'value' service, I want this to be very easy/passive for me but i want them to see it as a huge favor and something proactive coming from me. Do you guys have any ideas on what it might be ?

    Im thinking of a free seo audit or report of some kind, but anything else tangible?

    (serious replies please)

    Do you have current clients or people you've done work for?

    I don't believe in giving things away to try and capture business.

    However, what I have done before is this:

    Created a mini booklet with my portfolio inside. Shown past clients and how I've helped their businesses. This is what I did for them and I can do the same for you type thing.

    Show them exactly what you do and HOW IT HELPS THEM, i.e. by ranking in position one for this keyword, we increased lead flow by X% which resulted in generating X amount of sales resulting in $X

    I've found this approach to work really well.

    I'd use that effort for engagement in your sales outreach... example:

    If an audit isn't comprehensive then it makes your service look weak. So if you can identify a few problems then it is less work and the optics are better because of the friendly favor.

    I think a SEO report will do just fine. Just point out their flaws and mistakes.
    Also if they're your regular clients, just give them some tips to optimize their content. Maybe give them some keywords in their niche and stuff like that. You can find those keywords easily. Most don't know about them so they'll love them.

    Provide them some backlinks through expired 20 DA tumblrs. They are very easy to find if you have the right tools. ;)

    Have you thought about giving discounts for longer term contracts?

    40% off for 2 year contract for example would be an awesome gift
