    Hey,

    I am doing the website rental model. Fortunately I have been lucky recently with some good referrals coming in, and it doesn't look like they're going to stop any time soon.

    I have 4 clients right now with another 2 which are at this stage almost certain, and 1 other which filled out a contact form on my website but is going to call me when they're free.

    So, given that most of this has all happened in around a Month period, I am fairly happy.

    I am charging the lowest (one only) at $197/m and the rest at $297/m or higher.

    While I like it, I am wanting to scale up to higher paying sites. Sites that target broader geographical areas with more searches. Competition for SEO would be tougher but it would be a lot more leads and therefore more money.

    I am interested in leasing out sites at a minimum of $1K/m.

    I will continue to do what I do now as I have a referral source with hundreds of clients, but I do want to start stepping up a little slowly.

    Who here is renting sites for $1,000 per month or higher?

    Which industries are you working in, what type of fee structure do you use, how many leads do you get per month?

    Any and all help appreciated.

    Are all 4 of your sites in the same niche, but different cities?

    I guess if you charged a one-time setup and then charged "per lead" you could get more than $1k if you had the right niche.. some niches will pay up to $200 per lead

    Just to clarify.... you make sites and then give them to companies for monthly payment?

    So in the Rental a Site model there are a few ways to ramp up to 1000+. The only qualifier is that your sites actually send good and targeted leads to the clients. Without that it is quite hard to ramp up and there are many Rent A Site marketers that do not actually care enough about the client to send quality leads. They just set up a site, rent it and almost forget it.

    Method 1 - Change to a per lead basis model. With this model you either have to have higher traffic keywords(or more keywords) OR the per lead cost must be decent($100-$500 per lead). You can easily get away with any home construction/repair if you have enough search volume. As for higher paying, I like to go into the Industrial/Commercial sector. So niches like, commercial roofing, hvac, industrial siding etc. Some of these niches can quote a job that is in the hundreds of thousands, so charging $200-1500 per lead is not a problem.

    Mehtod 2 - Go directly for the high paying niches, even if there is not much search volume. So back to the industrial/commercial niches where jobs are quoted in the tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. An example niche that I have done in the past is commercial roofing. Even commercial roof repair jobs are quoted in the $10,000+ mark. Marketing to this type of niche is a little different, since you can not just put up a 1 page rent a site. It has to have some meat and substance to it so the visitors see it as a real business site instead of just a call here to get an appointment with a plumber. Also making sure you are continually finding extra keywords helps with these types of niches since the search volume is not the highest.

    Method 3 - Normal niches, but segmented them out into separate pages and rent each segmented page out. So plumbers niche in a big enough city that has 4 distinct quadrants. Create a main page targeting the keyword +city. Then on that front page put a coloured map of the city divided into the quadrants. Each map piece links to an internal page that targets the keyword + city + quadrant(sw, nw, se,ne, central) and then rent out each individual quadrant page to a separate client. This way if you charge $197 per month to 1 client, now you are charging it times 4 clients for the same website. This method also works great with cities that are divided into communities or subdivisions.

    Those are three methods in the rent a site model that can ramp up your monthly earnings.
