    Hey there everyone, I have been a member for awhile now and have been following threads about people posting their secrets on how to make some extra cash from current clients and prospect clients. What I would like to do is give a bit back now and this is my guide on how to sell to current clients that you have done web design for.

    What you will need:
    1. Access to their Analytics (Google Analytics is the most popular)
    - I always setup an account with any client free of charge (included in price) through Google Analytics so that I can access all of their information and resell to them based on their views/who's viewing.
    2. Clients
    - It always helps to have a few clients to pitch this to (;

    That's it :)

    What to do:
    1. Log in to Google Analytics (or whatever tool you use to track traffic).
    2. Go to Audience > Overview > Mobile > Overview.
    3. Open Audience > Overview > Mobile > Devices (in a new tab).
    4. Now look at the juicy data you have in front of you and analyze how worth it it is for your client to get a mobile site. On one of my clients sites he was getting %38 of his traffic on tablet/mobile devices.
    5. Go to the top of the page under Overview you will see an option to Export the data. Export it as a PDF and drag it into whatever you would like to build your report in.
    6. Now go and view your clients site as a mobile device and screen shot that.
    7. Create a proposal with your 3 different pieces of information attached.
    8. It's time to call them and set up a meeting.

    In the meeting you will discuss the different SEO benifits of a mobile responsive site and also pitch a few re-design options. You can show them the data that you have and what their site looks like now to a mobile user. Explain the traffic coming to the site currently which will most likely be around %25 and then tell them that they are missing out on those potential clients.

    This really will be a huge benefit for any business and will also give you the opportunity to provide a service for you client. EVERYONE WINS YAY :)

    I have had a %75 success rate with this method on current clients and thought I would share it. Let me know what you think!

    Just a quick question: wouldn't they ask from where you got those mobile statistics?

    Absolutely. This is for CURRENT clients. You would need access to their site to install Google Analytics or have pre-existing access. The reason why it is a successful method is because you are literally showing them the traffic they are not catering to.

    The most simple things can make or break you as a businessman. Hopefully it helps a few people get some current clients to come up to speed on the net :)
