    Ok, so I was able to find quite a few people in my local area that have absolutely horrible websites. I know for a fact that not much, if any at all SEO was done.

    I want to approach them with affordable redesign services and local search engine ranking. With possible recurring monthly billing.

    Can someone please guide me in the right direction for out sourcing the local SEO side of things, I can handle the redesign and make a WP blog that will blow their original webpage out of the water. I mean if it is profitable enough I will outsource the redesign also and stick strictly to selling.

    I appreciate everyone's advice.

    Set up your own website selling these services - then test out different vendors to rank you for local terms. If they perform then you can confidently re-sell what they are providing.

    Just because someone says a service here is good it doesn't mean it won't tank all of these clients - then your business is done before it even gets off the ground.

    Also set up some local websites to test providers...this way you can not only see what works and what doesn't...but you will also have some examples of your rankings.

    Don't just throw random services at these people - you could ruin their ability to rank in the future.

    Great idea, and I never actually stopped to think about doing that. Because honestly I was worried someone was going advertise something they could not produce.

    Maybe try requesting SEO gigs for the city/state on fiverr or peopleperhour. I've had success asking for writers from a particular place before. It worked great because they knew the area and what was relevant.

    Download a WordPress template, upload, throw some stuff up and then APPROACH THE FRIGGIN BUSINESSES.

    Too many people here try to think of every variable before they contact a business and most never do.

    You're much better off seeing if you can sell the businesses on your services before you invest a bunch of time building a website and trying to perfect everything.
