    Heya!

    You know, it's all well and good to have made a buck in offline marketing - some of us are even generating $5k+ a month doing it. But without solid, REAL value provided, retaining clients and being recommended by word-of-mouth is difficult.

    How many of you have provided real value for your client(s)?
    List what you've done to help improve their business, and what you did in order to do this.

    I'll start it off - I helped a recent client setup an opt-in form and autoresponder to help collect emails of people that visit their site so potential customers do not just disappear - we're working on launching an information product of the service they provide within the next few months.

    Success case: I once cooked some instant noodles for a client, then patted her on her back until she burped. Then we had wine.

    I am offering ORM services using 7878 method, and its working beautifully. Not only I see their reputation & reviews increased significantly over their competitors, but I've also executed a couple emailing marketing and social media campaigns for a few clients.

    I started working with them around 4-5 months ago, and till today, they are still my clients and always asking for more.

    If you are not offering REAL VALUE to your clients it is better for you to start finding a new job that you can make better and provide REAL VALUE to your clients.
    To provide a service or anything to a client when you know that you will not give him a REAL VALUE it is same like stealing them because they are paying for something that they will never get.

    With my services i help my site build an ecommerce store. His site is just like 6 months old but the domain is like 4 years old. I did some quality SEO for him as well and he is now ranking number 1 for the main keywords., HIGH COMPETITION !! He inspired me to carry on with my SEO work and that's why i left all the designing/developing work and totally enjoying SEO.

    Been studying and learning seo from the last 4 years but he inspired me to choose SEO as my fulltime work. Imagine, yourself ranking on number 1 for something that you provide to customers. How awesome that would be ?

    I only provide result oriented services to them. If the services are outdated and if he won't get any result or won't get expected result then I give him/her give the right advice and always provide work on time. The most imp thing for any business is repeat customer and that what I always have.

    P.S: This page is for sharing not for advertising what you're providing to your clients.

    In my opinion - providing quality services is easy if you know what your are doing. And if you have the time - it's always good idea to throw some extras to your client( like things you will need few mins to set-up and cost you nothing, or cost you low enough that it doesn't matter). For instance is someone hires you for SEO, helping him develop his Facebook and other social network accounts is good idea. Throwing free opt-in form as said above. Giving him adwords vaucher. Or even buy few Fiverr perks on his behalf without him knowing the price. The fact that you can do something or buy something for 5 dollars doesn't mean the client knows how easy it is for you to provide those perks.

    I know those are small things, but if your services are quality, the client will be happier if you throw some of those perks as bonuses. He will appreciate the little bonuses that you gave him, and often those things will add value to his campaings.
