    thanks for the suggestion, pest control is already in my big list of niches im going to target. here in the uk the average CPC for pest control is £5, not the same as the US but still decent money

    Contacted some more businesses and actually got some replies. Instead of emailing them which 99% of the time gets ignored, I looked for companies on facebook and messaged them from my personal account. So far every business I messaged has got back to me.

    Interesting journey, OP! Are you planning on doing anything with GMB listings to help gather leads?

    How do you get your listings up? Do you receive the Google pin at your home or you buy GMB's from the marketplace?

    Interesting journey. I'm going to follow this one and maybe do something similar in my country. Keep us updated! :)

    I'm sending over 200 messages a day from 1 Facebook account. Use a nice aged account, warm it up for a week, don't send messages too fast, and switch up the message every few replies.

    This one looks interesting and it resonates with me because I'm also working on a local business for online presence.

    I've seen some services providing GMB without verification. Not sure how those work but you could look i to that to give your site a bit of a push.

    What kind of links are you planning to build?

    What delay between each message do you think is good to avoid their filters?
    Do you use a tool with spintax to send your messages?
    I can't do it by hand, too many things to do beside this

    A couple second delay. If you do it too fast the account will get locked.
    Right now I'm doing it manually because I am using 2 accounts but Jarvee did the job with spintax when I was working in bulk.

    thanks mate.
    In fact I've used a few seconds delay already and was stopped from sending messages. I thought you would have saud something like 15 minutes between each message. Well I don't know maybe fb acts randomly depending on many factors.

    I forgot to mention that I add a really short delay when I am replying to messages. I add a longer delay when I am first starting a conversation.

    Only doing citations, forum links and niche edits. Not going to use PBNs if I can rank without them.

    Heres my two cents:
    Im in a lead gen FB group where this is all they do. I think its common to actually send free leads to a prospect for a week or so and warm them up, since you can track them, after a week or two you contact and say hey and list those specific customers that contacted them, let them know that was all you.
    Then ask them what its worth to get those leads consistently. The tell them great well its 300/month.
    If they decline, just move on to their competitor, and also tell them they will get exclusivity, ie one rank and rent per area code per industry. You wont go and then try to rank their competitors.

    Also, def with FB people answer more bc they assume you are a customer, whereas email is assumed spam.

    Lastly if you dont make a sale come back again and again every month. Im finally getting one prospect to take cc processing with me after FOUR different pitches and solutions that he rejected. I kept looking for a better solution and kept in touch.
    Ask them about their business in general too. Just bc you are SEO/Leads doesnt mean you cant help them elsewhere, show them the value of you. Even if you just refer them to someone who can solve their problems you become an asset.

    Some were interested, one laughed and another will likely be getting free leads from me until the site ranks better.

    Tiny update

    Received my report for the 5x niche edits I bought, 2 of them are recently indexed/cached by google, 1 is indexed but was last cached 1 month ago. 2 are not indexed/cached. I expect to see some rank improvements in the next 2 weeks from these links. Will also be ordering 5 more niche edits.

    Also got someone that is interested in buying the leads from me, will be giving him free leads until the site ranks better. Just waiting for him to send me proof of insurance so I know hes fully covered.
