    Hey guys i am going crazy at the moment.

    Im almost certain that this client wants to work with me.

    This is what i did.

    I went on google and youtube and went searching for people who do marketing with very bad results.

    And i have found someone who is doing marketing but really doesnt know what they are doing. His site is very ugly and very bad optemized not optin list no keywords etc etc.

    So i knew they know the value about online marketing my only job was pointing out how bad he is doing it.

    So how did i pointed it out without sounding cocky, like a scumbagg or a slik marketer.

    This is what i did.

    I found 3 keywords on his market.

    2 got 6000 exact searches and 1 got 2000 exact searches per month.

    I built a 5 pages website and basicly made a site from a markter perspectief.( Optin list, social media integrated and blogpages witch we wanna rank from the keywords i found.

    A Home, About, Services, Blog and Contact Page.

    I made 3 different style of Home pages wich he can choose from and i created 3 different blog pages with the keywords i found in his market and filled it with dummy text, that are the only pages i really finished. All the other pages i put in coming soon but he get the picture.

    I found a beautiful Avada theme on www.mafiashare.net (every theme you can find there)


    Then i gave him small tips how he could improve his social media marketing using linkeding, twitter, google plus etc very basic i know nothing about that stuff but that aint important because i want to sell my website and seo service.

    I sent him an email basicly telling him the site letting him know the power of listbuilding, fb likes, tweets etc.

    So i gave alot of value upfront but i left the part out about why i choose the 3 keyword because i wanted to tell al this on the phone so i sent my first email to him with all the info above talking a little bit about google but not to much and not mentioning why i choose those kewyords and what they are for.

    Next day i regreted that i didnt mention the kewyords because that has the most valeu and me being not a good talker trying to tell him this on the phone was plain stupid.
    So i sented out a second email telling him im gonna tell him the info better via email now because maybe he would not reply or call me and if he would call me al the info i was gonna tell him would make his head spin.

    And then i went on and explained him why i choose those keywords, how many searches per month they got, that i analysed the competition etc etc, that it was rankable all the good stuff but basic stuff for us.

    I told him if he catched my second email first he better go and read my first email so he can better understand what i am talking about.

    2 hours ago i see a email of him and my hart started pounding a little bit because i put alot off effort in to this.

    And he said. Wow that is some advanced marketing indeed please sent me the first email im very interested in this :D:D

    So he didnt even saw th website ive made for him:)

    So im gonna update my first email and then im gonna sent my email when i cum back later this afternoon.

    From what i saw online i see its a very serieus and good person who is serieus about his stuff and loves what he does, i know he got money because he drives a expensive car and has alot of pictures of him traveling.

    The crazy thing is he gets enough clients but i am 100 procent shure it is not from his online marketing because its sucks. Maybe refferals but iam just gessing.

    So what i want to offer him is this.

    Email Marketing integragion.
    Maneging his email campains(sending out the content that he makes to his list)
    Complete website.
    Video Marketing( He understands the valeu i explained him everything and gave examples of other people in his marketing who where ranking good and had alot off vieuws)
    Social Media integraded in his website.
    The most importent SEO marketing with atleast 10 new kewyords everymonth and ranking those keywords.( He makes the content because he is the expert and i know he loves to do it)

    He only delivers the content i do the rest.

    I dont understand google + yet but im gonna learn that so if you guys know a good course please tell me.

    He charges 300euro per 2 hours. And i know he has a high lifetime custemur value.

    If i would rank him only for the 3 keyword with the 6000, 6000 and 2000 searches it would be worth it for him but i have found lots more keywords with medium competion plus the site are static i want to built an autorety site with video, internal linking, good backlinks etc

    How mutch would you guys ask. Im thinking of 1000 to 1200 per month or should i try more. He is a one man company so it feels a little bit strange to ask more but i would love some toughts form you guys about it.

    And maybe some good tips on closing.

    I feel very confident that this guy is gonna work with me had a good feeling all the time about him.

    Im gonna sent my first email to him and update it a little bit, i see some points i can do better on and at the and i could close my email at 2 ways.

    First way. Tell him im he can call me at date that is good for both of us so we can have a good talk or i can sent my offer first in a email and then we talk via phone or....

    leave that offer part out and just make a phone appointment what you guys think.

    And no i aint gonna meet him because he lives olmost 5 hours away from me and if he read my second email good he knows how far i live but i know that aint gonna be a problem for him.

    I am really exited this is the closest that i have ever been to IM money.

    PS sorry for my bad english im from Holland.

    Wow nice,
    But I just had one question, no offense but do you know what you are doing?
    You can say that Im worrying to much ,but 300 EURO is alot for me, what I am afraid is usually the response of the clients when they doesnt get what they want.
    Im not in the game of what you are offering so Im newbie or you can say Im bullshit, Im just wondering how you people take care when something like that happen?

    Hey Router.

    Let me honest wiht you. I have never ranked a website in my life but i am confidence i will rank here site. I know that google loves content sites with great internal linking, youtube videos, good quality backlinks and a wordpress base website. I know how to check competition and if he is willing to push content like an animal we are gonna crush the competioon because there sites aint moving as hard as we gonna do it. Im aming at atleast 50 new posts with 50 youtube videos all optimezed for different keyword but all relevant to eachother. With some quality backlinking we should rank some keywords. After a while google is gonna now his site and will give him some pr and then its gonna be easier to rank for keyword and we can then aim for higher keywords.
    If he sticks with me hes gonna love me im shure about that and hes gonna be one big testimonie. But before i get to happy and stuff im must close him first.:p Peace.

    Congrats! Is it $1k-1.2k per month for all of that (minus the website)? If so, I think you can charge more. Are you charging a setup fee too?

    Only website i would ask 500 bucks if he goes all in with the seo etc then i would give him a discount of 200 dollars off of the website. Yes 1 to 1.2k for all of that and i havent even tought about a set up fee to be honest.

    Should i ask 200 euro set up fee?

    First of all, congrads. However, Be careful bro. If you have never ranked a website before, it may be smart to spend some of the client's money on BST services that have proven results or better yet high pr blog network posts. I have been in the position of having many clients but I lost them due to not knowing what I was doing. I am starting from scratch now, a year later, with only 1 client. (ok i guess not from total scratch). Anyway, don't let that happen to you and reinvest some of that 1k/mo to get him results.

    Great Stuff Keep up the good stuff. I like your approach about giving a lot of value up front and laser targeting your prospects.

    Soon you will have so much clients that you will need a team to put up the workload

    If you don't know what you are doing, but you have the client, you should outsource to someone who knows what they are doing, and keep the difference.

    Uhhh how about YOU rank the site you built as a demo and then come at it from a position of strength and say - I ve got this site - it ranks and Im either going to make it yours or your competitors.

    It gets X in daily traffic and Y in leads captured ...

    I can either send these leads to you or one of the other guys languishing on page two trying to rank.

    Rank shit - then your the boss ...
