    If you have an online business directory or can build one for my city
    with a few choice keywords for home repairs car dealers doctors lawyers Public Accountants or others than I can call these businesses and ask if they
    want to be in the directory with a basic listing for a small monthly fee ($25-$35) and split fifty fifty, and offer an upgrade of a regular website with an option for SEO services at a higher monthly fee.

    Basically want to get customers on tier program and the directory would be getting our foot in the door.

    If you PM send contact info to possibly discuss further and iron out details

    why would the businesses pay $20-30 for a link on some directory.. people aren't using directories anymore so I doubt the business would get any new visitors at all...

    try building one wordpress site for the highest google searched niche in your area. then contact each of them either through mail, email or in person and tell them about it and showing it to them online. nichecity.com or cityniche.com. then offer to maintain and build them a list of emails (general leads for the company) maintain a list of the emails and build backlinks for it. that's what you should do but the company doesn't care about those details they most likely don't understand it so you just have to guarantee value to the company and that you can provide sales from page 1# position in google and list building and marketing for the company. which they will pay you $1000 for or more.

    Funny! When I'm doing local keyword/niche research 8/10 of top listings are
    directory listings.
    I convert them from directory to stand alone site but everyday there are people signing up for directory entry. You're making the classic mistake of
    trying to second guess what a business needs before even evaluating them.
