Hi folks, Most probably you don't know me because I'm not famous on any of the forum online as the time I'm writing this post. But I'm into Internet marketing business from 2008. You can see I created BHW account in 2009 but only did few posts. This shows all to you Question is why I'm writing this post now? Simple answer is that I'm little free today as today is Sunday. and was thinking from long time to share my offline marketing story to community that delivering to people in true sense. I think BHW is the best one these days. Before starting it up: I want to share some of my office pictures with you to see I'm a legit person. Back to my local business earning method. My method is little long and consist of 4 steps but it really works for me month after month. Infect some of my client's working with me from more then 18 months and paying me heavy checks months after month. I'm trying to explain it step by step. First Step: Market Research: First I took a survey on kind of business to target, like Real estate, Lawyers, travel agents, student consultancy and so on and find out how much each company get paid on average sale/customer. If it is enough, I jump into it with my own city at first. I'm living in Islamabad, Pakistan. its a capital of country and more then 5 Million in population. (World 2nd most beautiful capital in the world according to some survey reports ) so I have good prospects to target in my area. Second Step: Create a website based on niche and city in mind: Then I create a lead generation website with good call to action and lead forms in it. Site is totally targeted for my city's visitors. Make it look awesome. and most probably in a country's TLD. otherwise .com works fine too for me. 3rd Step: Promote That Website: Then rank it up with SEO. (I already have an inhouse team for that those rank my sites and my client's website regularly). Ranking local sites to target audience is not an issue with me, because I'm into this business from long time and with having a right formula that I developed. I don't even have a single local site that got penalized from Google. 4th Step: Call to local business owners and give your site on trial: Once site got rank for local phases, simply search a bit on Google or directories and list down the people who are doing that business in your target city. call them and take the appointment. Meet them and tell them at you already completed the work for them. Now if they are interested. Simply this website is available to them for hiring, give them simple offer and before then that give them a trial for 3-4 days to test how many calls and emails they get. Give them reasonable price and boom boom. Simple work, I already have a marketing guy who do all the meet ups and deal with business owner. when I started I used to do it myself in 2010-11. I now only go to them, meet them when we make contracts. Simple task. Things to Consider: - Not all niches are same. Some of my websites are giving me $2500/month and some only $200/month. so it all depends and you have to be sensible while selecting a niche. - There is whole lot more room to upsell things like, making their own website, redesigning, SEO, local advertisement and lot more. Keep trying them. Even they might have offices in other cities and need same thing for those cities as well to get more customers. - Don't forget to refer them new clients at 10-15% commission. They already have lot of contacts while doing business locally. - Give them some more in future as a gift so they engage with you for long term. - PPC is also a good option and I using it too but only to long term customers where I can see good prospect. I even offer them double the visitors, leads with PPC at more prices and they love it. but only after establish a relation. That's it for now. I think you can implement in too on your own. Its not a rocket science. If you need any kind of help. Do let me know. I would like to help you all the way. Thanks for reading and have a pleasant day.
