    So the method is basically you send out letters to companies telling them you can rank them for certain local keywords.

    Instead of telling them I could get to the first page. I bought a domain 5 months ago, ranked it to the front page and now I am sending out letters to every company in this niche which is the Chiro niche.

    Keyword is "city name chiropractor"

    Sending out 17 letters today.

    I modified the letter and might share it with you depending on my success rate.

    I will update this thread with how everything goes.

    I am asking even if they are not interested to meet with me to discuss my company.

    Total investment to date = $20 for seo and domain name.

    The only thing I have used was SENUKE , wordpress, and I don't even have one article on the site. It is a a fauk chiro site so far.

    How did that turn out for you? How many letters did you send?

    I will not give up the city name.

    If you landed one, how much did you charge? Are you getting monthly income from it?

    Edit: also, I have no idea when i got to first page as I have been busy with other projects. Just getting back to this old domain! lol

    Have not heard from 1 yet but just used the google places letter and only targeted the 10 or so I found uing adwords as they were already used to spending $ online. Plan on giving it till the end of the week and doing an email campaign and also going down page 2+ and sending letters to them too! Did you use exact local searches in your letter,phrase or broad? I used phrase which said 6k per month but exact still was around 1k p\month. I plan on monetizing via either seo for their existing page\rent a site or outright sale of the site. Mhy preference is outright sale so I can target a tougher local term with a higher cost per click. As for what I charge I base it around cpc and what the client might pay if they used adwords... so far it has been around $1200 p\month...for places only going to ask for $500 p month to rent a sute $1k p month and for a sale I am looking for high 4 figures low 5 figures. Let's see what happens..

    Which kind of envelopes did you use to mail yours? Like the ones the OP has pictured or did you use Fedex/UPS and mailed theme first class mail through the post office?

    Did you include a return address on your mailers or not?

    So did you mail them using USPS Priority mail? Isn't that like $5 a piece to mail? Or you using some other USPS envelope to send First class mail?

    I think he's selling advertising spots, so it's recurring income.

    I was just wondering why do you need the op's letter? Why not write one yourself..

    These kind of letter/email's should be personalised because at some point your going to meet the client and do business right?

    Put them in the USPS Priority pack and send 1st class... :)
    I give them options: Rank their existing site... "See I have done it already can do it for you too."

    Rent a site "I can rebrand this site for you"

    Or sell "Best value is to buy the site"

    here is how I figure it, the cost per click is over $10 and almost 1000 exact searches. So if they get just 10 clicks per day(if they advertised via adwords) that would be $100 p/day over 30 days if they maxed out the budget they could spend $3K every month. So the value of the site is really $3k per month or so for how ever long they can keep the site on page 1.

    for my purposes I project a 6 month timeframe so the site could/should have a value of $18K for someone spending money on adwords IMO.

    I know it does not work exactly like that but in reality a top 5 ranking for that term is probably truly valued at hundreds of thousands of dollars if the site stays ranked on page 1 for years.

    Downside, not 1 call from my letters yet and not 1 reply to about 5 emails I sent out 2 days ago.

    I may need to JV with a GREAT Copywriter and if I can sell the domain give a cut of the profit. Any talented copywriters/sales pro's want to take a stab?
