    Hi
    I have found an exact match domain for SEO company, and a major city in the united states.
    I am wondering if I could target this city, given that I am a few states away from them.
    I have only had one SEO client and he insisted to meet face to face to discuss things.

    Do most SEO clients want to meet face to face? or everything can be done thru phone calls and emails?

    another question: can an SEO company get in trouble for black hat?

    Just do it - if you don't try you've failed already!

    You won't know if you don't try and living a "what if" life never gets you anywhere.

    You will find some people will want to meet face to face some wont care... make money from those clients that don't care - do a good job and you will continue to grow your business and wealth!

    Always cover your ass - you cant get in trouble if you disclose everything you are doing and they are aware and accept the the risks involved - make sure you have it in writing that they agree.

    Good luck to you - and all the best for 2011!

    In the words of Dan Kennedy... "pitch what you got".

    If you want to go local, than make that your advantage. "I'm local so we can meet face to face, I'm part of the community... you can find me, not some company that you can't reach".

    If you are not local you say, "I have clients all over the country that are able to get world-class service from us... you're not just stuck with the local guys you have in your city".

    Very few of my clients are local. I have never had a problem with that. I think either method can work perfectly fine... the question is which are YOU more comfortable with???

    Additionally you can say that you work remotely to reduce overhead and costs so as you can pass the savings on to your clients - not to mention it enables you to reach more people and HELP THEM with your exceptional SEO services! :)
