    First off there are MANY restaurants that invest a ton of money in SEO

    But to your question, 1. i dont work with resturants 2. I dont do SEO so idk how you assumed that
    like said, not willing to reveal the specifics right now, but just showing ppl the potential out there

    Missed your reply buddy, yeah were doing things slightly different from what I just read in your thread but absolutely there a ton of ways to go about it.

    In fact im going to meet a BHW member this week hes local too (wont reveal his name w/out permission) and we plan to do something locally so thats cool, will update

    lol some people...
    good call.

    I mean we could def go work for some multi-mill $ company, or we can start or own company, offer that service to multiple multi-mill companies, and build a multi-million $$$ company ourselves eventually :)

    @zionbar after reading this thread i made a phone call to one of my local barber shops, hes interested in running multiple instagram and im meeting up with him thursday. I just want to ask what i should charge? hes only interested in having people from our city buying so im planning on running automation and following ppl from x city.

    WOW! Thats awesome thanks for letting me know, inspired me to know that I made someone take action!

    Your question is so general I couldnt even start thinking about it :D

    So ill give you a general tip on how to go about it

    What I suggest is this -
    1. look at his social media presence
    2. build 3 packages with different options
    3.Ask him about his needs and wants
    4. offer the packages and go from there

    * when you present the 3 options, DO NOT reduce prices, instead offer a different package.
    "Mr. Barber, the $5000 is too much for you? no problem, lets start with the $2500 package, it doesnt include the "FB ADS campaign" but will give you this this and this, and we can later scale to the $5K package"

    Good luck buddy.

    He currently only runs one account on instagram, he told me though that he had customers off it so im thinking that the service im running is valuable. Also its in the clothing,barber niche so there interest on instagram for sure. But me i was thinking of offering like 300-400 dollars a month but now 5k looks more reasonable, but honestly i dont think he could afford it but minimum he could pay 1.5k a month but i have to see on thursday.

    If you cant charge him over $1000 / month its not worth your time and you're in the wrong niche / pitching the wrong business / dont know what youre doing... see which one is the problem and fix it mate :)

    U said IG ads work great for him? perfect, why not offer FB ads create a compelling offer (get a free haircut if you bring 3 people with you or idk what ) and charge him $1500 / mo

    he used a regular account just following and unfollowing he never paid for any ads, also his site is garbage, no seo done, i just think i could offer him a ton of services that i could easily do for $0 or very cheap.

    @zionbar i closed the sale thanks for this thread but I want to know if I should do cold calling. Finding email is hard but phone numbers easy what i notices though is if I call I’m never talking to anyone with purchashing ability’s

    $450 but before I offered two package one 3000 and another 1500 he didn’t care but he said he was having a lot of success with one he wanted to test the waters with 10 and if it goes well he going to add more. I can’t complain because my investment is $25 lol

    Thats good man, start with the $450 show him some value and get him to a 1500-3000 package.. once he sees the value hell be glad to pay more.

    For sure because he was already seeing success with one accounts it’s just a matter of scaling now. I’m trying to offer some Seo too and charge an extra 1000

    Exactly this.

    Google is gradually rolling out their Local Services programme across the US - https://www.google.com/adwords/local-services-ads/

    It is going to be very hard for local SEO to work when Google is aiming to take a big chunk of the home services leadgen.

    Yeah you're all right... except I never said I offer any SEO services so Idk who decided I do local seo? :D

    Anyways starting to think this should be in the make money online/ journey section lol but ill update.

    UPDATE -

    1.Got another business owner on a signed contract, charged him the down payment yesterday
    2. I keep out-reaching other biz owners, some called me back but I need to follow up
    3. recorded a short video that explains the service we provide, and I include that link in the email (youtube link for trust) so ill see how that goes

    Hope this gave u some ideas.. I know just from the replies here I got some and I created the thread so I assume that someone with no exp in local services will get some serious gems out of here
