    today I was at this social gathering and this girl asked me what I do (dont get jealous, she was ugly), I told her internet marketing and seo. she said "you guys are such assholes, whenever I dont pay my seo guy, he makes my site go down"

    anyway, she asked something that caught me off guard. It's a common question and I should have an answer prepared for it. she asked "how did you learn seo? did you take classes?"
    I said "no, there is no classes to take. I was working for this guy and he wanted me to seo his site, he told me either I would learn seo or get fired. so I bought some books and joined some online forums and just learned it." For some reason, this came out really unsexy. it's a true story, by the way.

    what is a better answer?

    she also said "you seem really new, how long have you been doing this?" is this a shit test? what is a good response to that?

    What a stupid bitch. Not even complaining about the service but rather that the service stops when she doesn't pay ... NO SHIT!

    Is that an alternative to the more commonly known urine test?

    Rather than "internet marketing and seo" say Internet Entrepreneur. Then when she still walks off you can pretend you have the money to pay for some high class hookers. That will show her.

    Most of the time, I find it easier to just say I'm a drug dealer.

    Why do so many people make a thread about what to tell people what you do for a living? Just tell people your a web designer, and nothing more. You dont need to tell them in detail alot.

    because that's how you get clients. if they dont know what the hell you do, how are you going to get clients.

    If I may quote from Taktical's legendary offline referral thread:

    [here: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...empire-earning-15-000-month-three-months.html]

    Would you disagree?

    Explaining to strangers what you do and perhaps educate them a little on the subject of SEO will definitely get you places. Doesn't have to be a referral as explained in that method, could be a potential client as well. If the OP would have made a more professional impression, he could have had her as a client right now. She was pissed at her current provider, golden opportunity if you ask me.

    The question I ask myself is, why you try to get customers at social gatherings and talk to people who dont even pay for the services they buy?

    mate! if she was a random ugly girl in a social event , why were you so worried about your answer, just be yourself. To me shes just plain rude and per-judged people.

    "you guys are such assholes, whenever I dont pay my seo guy, he makes my site go down"


    "you seem really new, how long have you been doing this?"

    You don't need clients if you do seo for your self, and not waste time making others money.

    Being worried about sounding sexy to an ugly girl when sharing what you do for a living, trying to land her as a client(knowing she doesn't want to pay for services, and expects it free) just doesn't make any sense to me at all. Reconsider what you're asking about here.
