    Hey everyone. The Internet is a huge place and it's always fun to find a little gem. I'm new to BHW and have been lurking some threads. Everything here is full of knowledge and advice..... I love it! I instantly became attracted to Local SEO and the idea of it. I decided that I don't want to sit back anymore and just jump into it.

    Im starting by learning to create some super simple websites (WordPress) and give them away to clients while charging them for hosting through me somehow. I want to eventually sell SEO services to them, since none of that is included when I simply turn over the website to them.

    My question is:

    How much is needed to actually rank a small/medium business, specifically service businesses for now?

    I am just wondering if there is some sort of standard package that usually works for you guys or if you find yourself personalizing each of your client's profile for maximum results.

    Again, I am new to this and am trying to learn as I go. This is actually fun and exciting to me and makes me dream of eventually leaving my "normal" job for something more independent and satisfying. I am really happy that I found this community guys. The stuff I read here constantly motivates me and makes me realize that all it takes is hard work and persistence.

    So thanks in advance all of you!

    PS: Any threads you guys recommend to learn the true basics would be appreciated. I will read it ALL

    To be frank , There is no Fixed budget, you gotta keep trying and putting some money till you reach your target ( First Page ) ...

    For Local SEO mainly you want to do NAP, Build as much citations as possible.

    Use reverse engineering process to know directories that works , Gather them up and have your VA to build citations on those pages as well.

    I don't want it to feel like I'm promoting someone's service in here but you can send a PM regarding services I've used and seem to work some of my local projects.

    I hope it helps
