    Starting this journey while this pandemic is not yet finished.

    From now on I will stop complaining and making excuses. F*ck hahaha curse those procrastination days.

    I hate myself for being good at procrastination and being lazy.

    I'm gonna be serious from here on.

    I will enable my email notification for this thread so whenever someone replied I can quickly see it. Also, I want this notification thing to serve as another motivation. If you notice that I am slacking or not updating, just reply in this thread, you can say anything hahahaha feedbacks are welcome.

    Also, I noticed that there are Local experts here in BHW, I would love to be learning from you people.

    Enough about my self.

    Here is the plan.

    I'm gonna target local businesses from the US. (I am from the Philippines). Why the US? I think people from the US tend to search more on Google rather than here. But maybe, in the future, I'm gonna target one of the cities here.

    I'm gonna target service-based businesses like roofing, plumbing, etc.

    1. Search for cities (not the big cities because the competition will be harder)
    2. Keyword Research and Competition Research
    -I'll be using this type of keyword [niche] + "in" + [city], [city] + [niche]
    3. I'll be finding these so-called "low-hanging fruit" keywords so I can rank easily.
    4. I'll be buying a domain with the city and niche in it.
    5. I'll create the website with contents based on the keywords.
    -each page will be focusing on one keyword
    -On-page SEO
    -Page speed
    6. Backlinks
    7. Track the rankings manually.
    8. Set up Phone tracking with a whisper in it.
    -the whisper is like this "Referral from [my name]"
    9. Find the client and send 1 or 2 calls for FREE then email the client and ask for a deal.
    10. I'm still thinking if I need to charge them per lead or a fixed payment per month.
    -I think this will be easy to choose when I'm already in this phase.

    Also, I think it is necessary to mention that I want this to be as free as possible (for starters).

    I only have around $300 in my PayPal haha I'm gonna try and make this count.
    My first priority for expenses are
    -domain
    -hosting
    -phone tracking

    the rest, I'll manually do it.

    As of May 23, 2020:
    Expenses: $0
    Earnings: $0
    Ranking: 0
    Website/s: 0


    Let's do this journey to freedom.

    Local lead generation can be extremely profitable if done right.

    While I haven't really being able to scale it myself the times I've tried, I know there are members on this forum that are ranking and banking like crazy in their chosen niches in their cities.

    One question. Why target U.S. cities when you're living in the Philippines? Why not target local businesses?

    Some of these people are going to want to meet you face-to-face. They most likely won't just start accepting some leads somebody is throwing them over email. You'll easily have to call these people at the very least. Preferably meet them as well for this to work.

    It will be hard to gain trust from the other side of the world, but I'm sure it's possible.

    I don't want to deter you from your goal but I must admit you're a legend for trying to market services to local businesses in a pandemic :)

    I wouldn't dare doing what you're doing right now, nor a year from now. Or it's a great opportunity, who knows...

    In my hometown small businesses are all closing down and most likely wouldn't be interested in purchasing any marketing.

    I should also add that Medium.com is a good parasite for ranking local keywords. Try that out and I assure you, there will be calls.

    Hey man, thanks for some suggestions.

    I want to target US because based from my research, US people tend to use google for finding services they need.

    But I'll also do this here in my country maybe for my 4th site (hopefully I get to this point haha).

    How do you plan to sell the leads and make sure you get paid for the leads you provide?

    The website I will make will display a tracking phone number. (not the client's)
    Every call the client received will be recorded from the call tracking software, so I can send an invoice or hopefully the call tracking software have an automatic invoice in it.




    What do you mean by that? If I can provide YOU leads from London? Or do you want to TEST if it is possible to generate leads from London?

    It is always better to find solutions instead of excuses. Good luck with your journey. Will be following.
