    Hi,

    I've a lot of telesales experience, either appointment booking or selling IT products B2B, my question is however - How realistic do you think it is to sell SEO services directly on the phone? I'm going to be calling outside my local area over this coming week and I don't have transport to arrange appointments further afield so I need to make the sale over the phone from Introduction right through to taking payment. Obviously I will be scheduling call backs etc and I don't expect to make the sales in one single call, but I really need to do it all by phone this week.

    How succesfull have you been in selling SEO over the phone directly?

    FYI , My prices range from around $300-500 for a 3 month SEO campaign. Thanks guys.

    It's a more difficult sell. If you have case studies, referrals, examples, etc. etc. It's definitely doable, it won't be easy though.

    Thanks, yes I was wondering about the case studies thing as my business is pretty new but I've found a sneaky way around that ;) It's more the pricing, I'm wondering how high people can go with just a telephone call. I've sold advertising spots for $2k upwards over the phone but that's more of a solid proposition than SEO so it's gonna be tricky, guess I'll just have to try it and see!

    I will do Bupler, I've got a good feeling that this can be done, I've sold $800 business conference tickets to companies completely out of the blue, pretty sure I can talk at least a handful of companies into paying for SEO.
