    Hey everyone!

    Got my first SEO client!
    The company is from Canada and they contacted me through my site. It's a 6 month contract (on renewal basis), and I'm charging them $700 a month (so that's $4200 for the entire period). They said that they might hand over 5 of their other projects if this one goes well, do the math :D

    Thought I would share it with everyone here, since BHW has helped me a lot! Any questions? Shoot.

    Let's get this going! :D

    THANKS A LOT everyone! BHW is such a great source of encouragement! :)

    I think they got my site from the SE.

    I offered them white-hat SEO, but off and on page. It was an extensive list of things I ordered, along with quick communication and straight forward answers. The guy was pretty impressed!

    Well done mate, this is very inspirational stuff. Did you cold call at all to generate business or do you rely purely on getting leads from your site? Please may I also ask, what was your lead time from first enquiry to actually getting paid?

    I just want to make a comment about this guy SIXINCHANAILS!!!, he is from India and he just posted some offensive text on my site, here it goes

    He spammed me with his seo services, usual spammer from India, I got at least 10 emails per day from people like this!!

    So when I declined his services and tell him his english language sucks, this is what I got

    FIRST PM on BHW PM


    How the fuck is is your post a joke any way you fucktard? Read it again, and if you still think you tried to joke then you've got no sense of humor or sarcasm.

    You racist son of a bitch, quit trolling around.

    Jobless turd.


    THEN COMENT ON MY SITE
    Hello racist fucker what are you doing in cambodia did you swear at all the locals in english and laugh at them?!


    THIS GUY IS INSANE; PLEASE MODERATOR; BAN THIS GUY; HE IS JUST A SPAMMER AND OFFENSIVE PERSON, THANK YOU

    I know how this guy gets clients, he spams the hell out of them, he abused me verbally on skype etc. It is just my opinion to not work with spammers. But somebody should ban this person. I never saw indian people so offensive

    THANK YOU, BTW COMMENT IS STILL LIVE ON MY SITE IF YOU WANT TO SEE!!

    That pretty exciting. I was worried there might be too much competition to concentrate on bringing in new clients online. Clearly there is lots of opportunity.
