Hello, Ive decided to start offering different services to local business owners such as seo, google places, social marketing, web development, and others. Where I live right now is a mid-size city in my country, and although I have faith Im going to be able to do business here, I know that I could find many more opportunities and interested people in the bigger cities. Doing some research, both in my city and the bigger ones the competition is very minimal. The problem with working with the latter ones is the distance, as I wouldn't be able to meet face-to-face with these potential clients. So my question is: do you think its possible to successfully get business owners as clients for these kind of services by only communicating through phone and internet? Or in your experience the meeting in person is too important here? What Ive thinking is offering, for the google places package for example once they get in touch, the possibility of them paying weekly, after they see their google places page ranked (should be easy to do it fast in that particular service , as the competition is almost non-existent) to develop some trust first, as I think its pretty delusional for me to think I could get paid upfront and in a considerable amount by somebody who never met me in person. Any thoughts or experiences to share about this subject would be greatly appreciated.
