    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if reselling seo packages was an interesting activity or if the commissions were too low to make it a real opportunity ?

    Any serious BHW providers worth having a look at regarding this ?

    Thanks for your views ;)

    PS: not sure it' the appropriate place to post this...

    High risk but potentially profitable. Works up until the point your service provider fails to deliver and you get a huge shitstorm of angry customers.

    Honestly I don't think it's worth it but it is entirely possible if you have a reliable service provider

    I know what you mean. Makes sense. Thing is I dont have time (and propably lacking experience as well) to do everything by myself. Finding clients is already pretty time consuming.

    I've since two different styles of providers so far:

    - BHW guys (usually with a solid reputation)
    - bigger companies (with whitelabel dashboards and an array of tools for you and your customers).

    If you've got some honest reviews or if your doing this yourself, I'd be interested in your views and conclusions ;)

    Cheers

    SEO service will be the least thing I will promote as an affiliate, the downsides are damn too many. There are lots of worthwhile affiliate products to tap into with less competition.

    I'm pretty sure "white label" is not the same as "affiliate".

    White label means blank label, as in invisible, unnamed, hidden. You provide an SEO service from your end, while you actually outsource the tasks to this "white label seo provider".

    What you want to do is analyse the most time consuming/technical aspects of your strategy, and outsource these, while you offer "the whole package" at a premium price.

    So for example, if you wanted to provide a client SEO service for a business/e-commerce site, then you could say use Budget Rank (as an example) in the Marketplace, for some general link building, while you dealt with on-page, niche/manual links, content marketing etc, and hire a freelancer to clean up the code, and charge a higher overall price.

    Cost=£200-300, Sell=£600-1000p/m

    That's right, Im not talking affiliate: I'm talking white label which is basicly outsourcing the link building and focusing on the rest.

    Anyway, it doesnt sound like a good idea. Its true that you have to be a 100% sure the people you're working with are good. If not, clients might get pretty pissed off with results long term....
