    Hey guys.. I came accross this forum searching for ways to market my SEO franchise and have been following a couple threads and I must say that I am amazed by the friendliness and the willingness to share great information here. I really look forward to becoming a part of this community and learning from everyone.

    Anyways.. I just got my hands on an Internet Marketing franchise (a company that has been in business for over 7 years) and am planning on ways to market it to small businesses in my city and around the country. The service that I'm pushing right now is a package with year on the first page of the Google Local listings under 3 keywords, a Google411 and Google Text listing, and a 30 second customized video commercial. All I am doing is finding customers. I do not personally do any of the SEO.. there is a team of specialists that take care of everything. I have done ok so far just cold calling and meeting with a local business, 3 new clients in total this past week, but I want this business to really blow up. I'm talking at least 25 to 30 consistent new clients a week. So my question is how would you guys market this to local businesses around the city I live in and the country?

    Also.. if anyone is interested in marketing this and finding clients for me it would definitely be very lucrative for the both of us. PM me for more details.

    First, welcome to BHW and I hope you discover all the answers you're seeking and will become a valuable contributing member.

    I'm a little confused, you say you purchased a franchise for this. Since you're not doing any of the actual work as far as design is concerned. What exactly did you buy if they didn't provide you with the training and tools you need to sell their services?

    Franchise is about duplicating a successful and profitable blueprint. If they don't have one they can share with you then they didn't sell you an franchise. They sold you a dream.

    This is no reflection on you but basically it sounds like they don't know how to market their services either so they thought they would sell the opportunity to others and see if anyone else could figure it out.

    I have a similar setup with people I joint-venture with but I provide them with a step-by-step-follow-the-dots blueprint for marketing my firms services.

    If you didn't invest too much into your franchise I believe you'll discover that you can outsource everything on BHW and end up with earning more income than the franchise. There's lots of very talented people on BHW.

    My response isn't terribly helpful but we did get you BUMPED up to be seen again by others who may have missed it when you posted it the first time. In the meantime, look in the OFFLINE MARKETING FORUM of BHW for more insights.
