    Hey Ukescuba

    I was just looking at your site, the design is awesome.
    When you started out did you start with offline businesses? They seem like the easiest to target?

    hi sycro

    i did indeed start with offline and still do to a certain agree...

    i would get our foot in the door by offering printed materials, usually business cards, flyers or brochures - in turn this would lead to web development and promotion.

    Now since i restructured my business and geared it more towards consulting and internet marketing for my clients usually at a local level, most of my clients come to us by finding my business being ranked top across all the search engines for local relavent keyterms and through word of mouth, ive never had to spend a single penny on advertising!

    When not consulting we spend time creating campaigns for our own projects or do training either way theres still good money to be made both from both sides of internet marketing - ie implementing it for yourself or others or simply teaching it :)

    hope that helps
