    I'm always explaining solutions for businesses and entrepreneurs that I meet in person. I've made quite a few sales for various things doing so.

    It's obviously not my main form of selling, but it does help to network with anyone you meet.

    You never know what type of lead you can generate or sale you can make.

    Congrats :)

    This sounds eerily similar to a deal I'm working out at the moment.. She wasn't a hairdresser, but she wants to sell a beauty product online.

    Numbers we kicked around were ~$1500 for the online store + email marketing campaign setup (opt-in forms, autoresponder, etc). Ongoing SEO starting at about $750/mo. Website setup + first month SEO retainer (as setup cost) to get started.

    2 hours with my designer (~$100), 5-6 hrs with my dev (~$200), and a few hours of onsite SEO setup (which I'll do myself.. I actually like doing the SEO work). Ongoing SEO maintenance I'll handle in <2hrs/mo - with maybe $100-150 spent on outsourcing link building/writing (probably less, competition looks weak).

    Extra cash: hosting + aweber affiliate commission, free lunch for referring her to my copywriter :p
