Alright, so if you're like me you have a ton of outsourced CEO monkeys always spamming the hell out of you, offering to do SEO for you. I decided to try an experiment last week, and instead of fighting I started talking to them, mostly out of curiosity. But as I was talking to them my curiosity slowly grew into an opportunity. These motherfuckers fight like crazy for your business, and are willing to jump through all sorts of hoops. Nothing seems strange to them, because they're used to sucking the dicks of any mom and pop dentist out there in an effort to dupe some fool into paying them for SEO. Once they are getting paid, it turns out, they pretty much send a bunch of automated shitty links to your site, hope it ranks well for a bit, and eventually their PBN gets found out and mom and pop get totally screwed. Bad business. So I started talking to these motherfuckers and ended up asking for all examples of their work - I asked for 10 references each, and most ended up supplying 10-15 examples of sites they were working for. I hired a VA to contact all of these folks (but you can do it on your own), and ended up sending something like 149 emails explaining the situation and selling what I would do for their sites if they hired me instead. Told them the basics of how SEO works, the whole 9 yards, you get it. The key here is I actually took the time to do the grunt work. That's where 99% of people go wrong anyway - there's nothing wrong with the method, you just can't be so damn lazy and you have to actually do it well. I found the keywords I would _actually_ go after, a few link opportunities I would _actually_ get for them; none of this "let me not think about you and spam the hell out of your site" bullshit. Actual, real work. I hit up all of those people with very detailed info - about 150 in all. I showed them what was wrong with their sites, gave them a realistic estimate for how their sites could change, etc. Within a week I had 13 new SEO clients all paying $400/month. Do the math - = $5,000+/month, and really basic stuff. At the end of the day everything you read on here comes down to a lot of hard grunt work. Do that shit and you'll bank.
