We got our first Google Place Optimization client a few days ago. Our client is a criminal attorney with his own law firm. We generated the lead using the same FedEx envelop method we used to get our first Reputation management client (see thread in this forum called "IN BUSINESS: Reputation management") The client took our Gold package for $1,000/mo for 3 months and then a "maintenance" mode after the initial 3 months. This package gives him 5 keywords ranked in Google Places. We are now up-selling him on a mobile optimized website, video production and our larger google optimization package. I would show you a copy of the check like I did in our reputation management thread but this client paid with a credit card right in his office! Lucky for me I had an iPad with a Square reader and was able to swipe his card right there on the spot. For those of you that don't know about Square it is a payment company started by the creator of Twitter. Every Square account comes with a small dongle (card reader) that plugs into the head phone jack of your iPhone or iPad and allows you to swipe credit cards. All you do is sign up for a free Square account, download the app to your mobile device, plug in the dongle and take payments! There are no monthly fees and they wire the money to your bank the next business day. The client has been paying another SEO company $500 a month for nearly a year with no movement in the SERPs. No results at all. After further research it is apparent that the previous SEO company has not done much SEO at all. Since the client is in a very competitive market I recommended that we focus on Google Places optimization instead of organic SEO methods. Google Places Optimization is quicker and cheaper than traditional SEO. We have already started work on this project and will keep you updated.
