    Hi all,
    I have resources to sell services to webmasters to increase SERP's. But, I couldn't find customers. Right now, I have been going to individual websites and using their contact pages to inform them about my service. However, I have received a reply from only 6 of them, and converted only one client from after almost filling out almost 200 websites' contact forms. I would like to know where I am going wrong, or how I can improve my strategy.

    Join BST here at BHW if you can offer a really good service with an awesome support.

    I ignore all SEO offer emails i get daily.

    You need to build trust first. Work for free (cheap) and ask for testimonials. Word of mouth is the best marketing strategy.

    I (and every webmaster in the world with a contact form on their site) receive hundreds of emails like yours every day. This is why you won't get many answers, promoting this way is really not your best bet.

    You must find other ways to promote your service, i.e. :
    - Webmasters forums
    - Sell a cheap service on fiverr and try to upsell your main service
    - Make a website to advertise your services and promote it (SEO, PPC, etc.)
    - Etc.

    Thankyou.
    I will try to offer my services here free. But, as people keep adding their services, wouldn't my thread go down? How do I prevent that?

    I receive these emails every day and they're usually saying how my website doesn't rank well, and it's #1 for all its money terms. You have to realize that people don't know what you are capable of doing and who is legit vs a scammer, so best bet is to do what others mentioned and put a thread up here or on other forums so you can build up a reputation as someone capable of doing the work well.
