    So BHW has given me so much. I've totally quit my job, opened up a new office and I have more clients than I know what to do with. My company makes about $15,000 a month, and my expenses run around $3 - $4k. I built it all in about 4 months (started in January). And I'm about to hire some full time help.

    It's time I gave back to the community that has given me so much...

    First to prove I'm not just talking out of my ass...please see pics of my newly renovated office (not home office...OFFICE).

    Check the huge whiteboard with a link tree drawn on it!

    LOL, mac laptop (soon to be replaced with a full size iMac) with BHW on it!!! The secret to success!




    So now you know whats possible. Here's how I did it:


    I see lots of posts on here about how to get new clients. All of them regarding some form of cold canvassing. Cold canvassing includes methods such as: cold calling, walking the neighborhood, sending emails, sending direct mail...yada yada.

    The problem is that these methods take way too much time to work, and they rarely produce any truly valuable clientele (my biggest client paid me $25,000 for reputation management in one check. I nearly fucking fainted when they gave it to me). After spending years in commission jobs dealing with these types of marketing, I've learned that there's only ONE way to get amazing, ridiculous, incredible, rich, CORPORATE clients that trust you....Referrals.

    But of course, how can you get good referrals? How can you get people to put their good names on the line to refer you to the most powerful people they know?

    Simple...you pay them.

    I sent out a blast message to everyone I know on facebook, twitter, and linkedin letting them all know that I'm offering a 10% commission for any client that they refer to me. The clients sign 6-month or 1 year SEO contracts and I pay the referrer 10% of the entire thing. Now that's BIG money!

    Suddenly, everyone I know is a salesman for my company. People I haven't spoken to in years are calling me up and telling me that they know a guy who's a VP at some big firm that could definitely use SEO. And the people they refer have 100x more trust for me because I'm not some goon who's cold calling them. I've beaten out some of the biggest SEO firms in the country for clients just because I was referred personally and they weren't.

    I tell strangers that I meet about this as well. As soon as someone asks me what I do for a living, I respond with "well i'm glad you asked...." and then I explain what SEO is and I explain the commission structure. I've had people make referral calls RIGHT ON THE SPOT in front of me.

    I also tell web designers, graphic designers, local printers, and anyone in any other form of marketing about what I do. I tell them that they are doing their clients a disservice by not including SEO in the offerings. I tell them that they can either refer me for 10%, OR they can bill their clients and sub-contract to me.

    Below I'm attaching some documents that you'll need to do this. These documents have been reviewed by several attorneys (I'm Jewish so I know lots of lawyers :cool:) and I'm giving them to you guys for free.

    What kind of keyword competition does the average client need seo for?

    How do you price your services?

    I like your mentality I share it as well. I've recently ordered 300 + business cards, I end up handing them out all of the time when someone asks "what do you do." The great thing about this is that almost every business needs SEO in some way, you just need to convice them. With a wonderful partner like Google you can really make a good career out of this stuff.

    Rep given!

    Do you use business cards where people can see the 10% offer?

    Unfortunately i think this method works only in the USA. I often made the experience that people hate if you want to use them for making merchandising non subtly or that my attitude wasn´t calibrated.

    Do you want to give out your website?

    I usually go a little tougher than the average niche site would want to be at. You're gonna wanna start small so that you can show quick ranking improvements to your clients right away. As time goes on, you can introduce new and more difficult keywords that bring real juicy traffic.

    Thanks man. I get a lot of compliments on it. Almost done

    Very true. EVERYONE needs SEO. Right now its a $10 billion industry and growing fasssstt.

    Really? Thats awesome. If you'd like to discuss strategic options I'd be interested. PM me or hit me up on one of the communication services on my profile.

    Oh and I'm quite expensive (because I'm in new york everything is more expensive).

    SEO is about 1-2 thousand a month
    Social media is about 1k per fan page per month.

    I know exactly how you're feeling. You've arrived! All that hard work and actually implementing what you have learned is paying off.
    I feel like that every morning.
    It's brilliant isn't it?
    Well done.
    I hope this thread inspires some members to keep pushing on
    and put their dreams into practice.
