    I've been bringing in clients from all over, but really wanted to try teaching a seminar. Basically, I'll invite a ton of local businesses to attend for free, talk for 45 minutes or so, give them some awesome handouts, and close a few deals. Get a nice banquet room, some food, and make it look super professional. I want to structure it as more of a training session, where people would be able to run there own SEO from what I've talked about; but as with anything some will be more than happy to pay for it.

    There was a program out (its still available), called 10K In A Weekend, but from what I can tell; it's mostly dated. It was about doing exactly what I talked about.

    Does anyone know where I could buy a program that has the powerpoint and marketing materials ready? Or is anyone already doing this, that would be interested in selling their materials?

    I bounce back between Buffalo, NY and Toronto, ON; so hopefully that means we aren't in competing markets.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks. ~englandrm

    Yes, I agree entirely. Basically teach it 1-3 times, and turn it into a webinar for my site. Then when people come, they can give me their email and watch it. It will be a passive form of converting.

    Highly recommend using an event/seminar planning firm. If your polished enough some will even market you for a cut :) If not they are still well worth the price for making sure everything goes off without a hitch, all you need to worry about is your presentation.
