    Build a website, print some business cards and pass them out to the local businesses.

    Grab a local list of business address's from your local yellow pages. Target different unique business's and send them mail to them
    about your services. Great part is it is not cold calling so you do not have to go through that. But at the same time you can blatantly
    advertise to local business's.

    Go through friends and friends of friends that own business and need your service. If you're good then your service will spread via word of mouth. That's how I got started and it seems the most likely scenario to actually make you some money. After that, you can invest into advertising yourself to scale up.

    I was thinking about this today, I would offer free no strings advice, I mean HELPFUL stuff without you upselling anything. OR chose a super simple keyword like... "best pink flower arrangements in Los Angles", and offer it to them for free, no strings. I would do this myself, but I prefer doing work for myself rather than clients.

    If you have the knowledge to drive hundreds of targeted traffic to a site then you don't need to ask this question cos you have not the answer.

    Rank your site like you rank others and sales will flow..

    Another method that you can try is if you are familiar with PPC, you can run ads locally for different cities. Have it send traffic to a landing page and then close it!

    Follow rankings for a niche that you are interested in. Look for websites that have been hit by recent updates. Send them a customized email (or preferably call them if you can) with details on why they were hit and what they can do to get back up in the rankings. Make sure you explain details of algorithm in layman terms (instead of just saying Panda/Penguin)

    Once a day I get a random email about how the email sender will improve the rankings of one of my sites and the email contains absolutely no customized details. They go straight to the bin without even being opened. Hence, make sure your email subject is customized and relevant.

    PPC is the way to go if you have the budget, keep in mind that many other SEO firms use PPC and may outbid you.

    What I used to do is partner with web designes who build websites but dont know SEO. Have then upsell thier clients to do SEO and in turn he will charge THEM what ever price he wants and you set your own price with the web designer. He could even offer now package deals and either way you get new clients you dont have to deal with and money....win win BUT kep that communication open as yo may at some point need to talk to that client.

    Thanks for all the input guys. I was specifically looking for "creative" ways to generate more SEO clients. Using PPC or trying to rank for SEO Services is pretty saturated. I'm looking for out of the box solutions that are (a) less competitive and (b) having larger impact on the receiver.

    Open an excel sheet type SEO Client and copy paste to all columns. Here you go! okay I am just kidding. You can make some accounts on freelancer platforms and get your clients from their or you may try hire a freelancer section on blackhatworld.
