In my past experience running my online SEO business I started the client the day they paid. So if they paid April 13th, the report was sent May 13th (monthly reports). I found this to be very annoying and would be much easier if I generated reports on the last day of every month rather than throughout the month. This also helps with keeping everyone's monthly plan organized. So for my local SEO business I am starting I am thinking I should delay the start and tell the client that I will be working on his or her campaign for more than a month for the first month (so they think that they are getting more). Is that a good plan? If you have any ideas feel free to pitch in!
