    Ok, I have been reading about some of the success stories and how people here got contracts for work but I think for the most part we are missing something, who do you use for the outsourced work and why.

    Of course this takes into account you not doing it yourself.

    Are there any people in the "Services for Hire" area that do this? I have searched and not found too many.

    I know on WF I have seen people advertising their work but I don't trust alot of what I hear over there.

    Car anyone fill us in who they use and why? Also what do you pay initially and then per month?

    I am a little concerned about people charging on set fee every month, i.e. $250 per month, every month. I can understand a high initial monthly fee but why so much each additional month. The most work comes in the beginning actually setting up the GP and citations and backlinks. After that its just maintenance unless its a difficult keyword.

    Can the people that outsource their work explain to the rest of us who they use and why?

    Thanks

    This is something I'm definitely interested in learning about. I can get the clients, but now what? How do I deliver? I go on some sites and they offer services for $10/hour. Maybe we're just looking in the wrong places.

    monthly fee is what you need to build a sustainable business... IF you think your just going to offer new SEO and just do sales all day long your in the wrong line of work. SEO isn't a quick sell and receive type of industry takes time and building. Thats why there is a monthly. If you guys need services PM me what your looking for.

    There is a difference between initial set up, which is alot more work than the maintenance. Like I said I can understand a higher initial fee but every month after there is alot less work to do.

    So I dont see a reason to pay a worker $250 every month regardless of the amount of work they do.

    I charge 45- 150 dollars for my SEO work, I offer different bundles. The reason why we have to charge per month is because it is not free for us to do it. it cost us each week/ day to do SEO work.

    So how does it work? Do I just give you the site of my client that needs work on, I pay you the initial fee, you do your SEO work, track it, give me a report to show my client and just continue this relationship monthly as I pay you at the beginning of every month for another round of SEO? Because honestly I wouldn't mind paying a recurring fee to someone who does white hat SEO and does a great job.

    Is there a limit to the amount of clients I bring in to you, as an example of course, I'd need to get the clients first.

    I'm guessing those are the easiest kw for SEO then. Right now I'm only planning ORM, but I'm very interested in offering SEO and outsourcing the work to someone who can do it. Based on what you told me however it seems I should only offer keywords with their business and the city they're in, right? Like say I have a client in the hotel niche, I shouldn't offer the same service to someone in the same niche and the same city, right?

    That bites, means I can't do SEO for several hotel owners that want that service then. In the same city I mean.

    Right, Organic SERP is much more difficult and time consuming hence the reason it costs more. and yea no more then around 2... in the same niche. Unless they ask you to be exclusive...

    K, as an example and for future reference, what's the limit on the amount of clients I can send you before you say "Stop, the amount of work to get this done with white hat SEO, along with sending you tracking reports, is too much"? I personally wouldn't mind paying someone a recurring fee for maintenance, per client, as long as that someone can get the work done.

    Again, as an example and for future reference, should we talk to each other first, get some relationship going, and then I pay you at the beginning of each month along other paperwork so we can do this for the long run.

    Almost forgot, how much do you charge? By that I mean include everything.

    Is there a site of your work, maybe a portfolio of the work you've done? I'm interested in seeing your bundles.

    Of course there's people in the services for sale section here. It's full of people offering every type of service you could use to rank your clients sites.

    I use many of them to rank sites easily. Just double what you pay on here and send the guys on here your clients details. They all provide reports which you can brand yourself and pass on to your customer. Do one off blasts for easy comp and sell monthly services for higher comp rankings.

    If you know your business you should know what is needed to rank your clients sites. There's been a number of threads about Fiverr too. People are setting up Google Places for $5. Read their reviews and make sure they have good feedback. There's FB page creations, FB banners, SEO, article writing, content creation, video reviews for your clients business services and on and on.

    SEO will be the easy. Meeting the client and selling the service is far harder especially now every Tom, Dick and Harry is jumping onboard!
