    I just outsource this to 3 different people. The first guy does my first 40 citations manually ($10).
    Then a month later I forward that list to a 2nd guy who builds an additional 80 / month for 3 months at $120.
    And usually half way through I find someone to do map citations too.

    It costs around $140 but those citations slowly get done over 3-4 months which is how you want it.

    During this time I use a private review network to drip feed reviews to G Local, Yelp, Yahoo, Insider Pages, Merchant Circle & Kudzu.

    I put a lot of time into managing these accounts and just as much time into writing the reviews. It's not unusual for me to spend 20-30 mins on each review. But I'm not doing this for a client. I do it for myself to broker the leads. I know from experience those reviews blow up your bottomline like nothing I know of. Conversions explode. Traffic explodes. The quality of the leads does a 180. It completely changes the game. You get far less tire kickers. People who call need to use you since you have more and better reviews than anyone else in that industry. They'll pay more for the same service. Clients will wait weeks just to be seen. Without reviews they'll leave and just call your competitors.

    There's no way I can explain how profitable those reviews really are. In my industries, it would be hard to calculate the true lifetime value. But I know for a fact it's A LOT. We're talking thousands and thousands and thousands... it could be $15-20k per review (no bs). This is why after leads start rolling in (from fake reviews) we offer HUGE INCENTIVES for customers to leave reviews on their own.

    We'll offer free shit over $1000 for 1 review. We'll give people HUGE discounts on work. And since we raise prices as our reputation grows clients obviously pay for those discounts.

    I also do lots of other shit too like SEO, huge silo'd sites, hundreds of geotargeted pages, geotargeted YT arbitrage and ranking videos. I put a lot of time into the copy on the sites. Everything gets done better than our top competitors. And I slowly rank the sites some industries take 6 months others take 1-2 years but in the end the profits are incredible. And it helps that I get paid for performance. That means ALL my funnels perform and make money. ALL my funnels are built to be around forever.

    The problem is you said you're working for a restaurant. And the model I use would never work in any food industry. Restaurants have HORRIBLE profit margins. There's too many people involved. Even high end restaurants I've been contacted by owners. They still have low profit margins and way too much overhead. They always wanna pay a monthly fee and have full ownership over the real estate YOU BUILT online. Anything YOU BUILD you >>>NEED to own permanently. Cause if you do a great job for them, even if you're getting $5-$10k / month all they gotta do is fire you. Then if they make $1,000,000 over the next 3 years thanks to your work.... you're not seeing a penny of that. And even if they grant you equity or permanent royalties there's too much risk involved, too many variables you can't control.

    Same with doctors, dentists and lawyers. Even though those industries would perform better than restaurants and have higher profit margins I still avoid them like the plague.

    I'm ranting now but that's how I rank G Locals. 1) I fund and own everything I build no exceptions. 2) I pick low risk industries I can control with huge profit margins in the long run that get most their leads online. That way it's just a few people making a lot of money. Noone feels undervalued or unappreciated.... and most important you can build real, stable, sustainable, high profit funnels that will be around forever with minimal bullshit and are easy to grow (home improvement type industries).

    That's just how I do it.
