Too much offline work for me tho.. I like the quick set up and go campaigns that brings in 7k per week.
ahh, now that is good money! I have loads of offline experience and I wanted to put something together for those people in a similar situation. I know it took me ages to figure out how to leave my day job and do this shit full time, and now I have much more free time, and no boss. Good enough for me. But I wouldn't mind bumping it to 7 k a week!
I really need to set something like this up in the UK but i'm 17. Don't think businesses will take me seriously.
Hey don't let age stand in your way.
If you know someone within your network who is maybe a little older, you can do the leg work and be the brains behind the operation, and they can front it.
But hey, don't get too down about being 17, you are already way ahead of the game, just by being here, you have loads of years left to hit this market.
Another thing you could do is approach seo/online marketing companies, be straight about your age and offer to do something for them for free to show them that you are this online marketing whizz kid. As soon as they see your results, they will want to talk more to you. At this point say you want 10-20 of the seo spend for the client, and you will do all the work.
Most ad agencies/marketing companies/pr companies outsource. They ususally pay 50% of the client seo spend to outsourcers, so you never know
Any chance you could find the link to IBP? I've been looking everywhere and I can't seem to find it!
Did a search found this..
swoffire, I am very interested in your project I too live in the UK and I am really thinking about doing so I would love to hear form your experiences. I do have a lot of questions but at the moment, how do you charge the services? Do you have like an online shopping cart which bills a set price each month for each client? How did you go about creating the contracts? What kind of stuff do you put in the contracts?
I try to charge all services using the paypal subscription service. It just saves having to run around chasing for payments. I charge based on a 80% profit margin, so basically what ever I buy in here or other online resources, only comes to about 20% of what I charge my client. I create customer landing pages with the paypal link in for them to order through, no online shopping facility as each package is different. I just use a standard order from, and some terms and conditions I put together based on what I found on other seo company websites.
I think its quite important to not over think this, if you get out and speak to potential clients you will soon realise that you know 1000% more than they do.
your right it isnt, But its all about showing your customers value.
If you can show that you have been active then they will be impressed.
Ive been doing it around 4 years, and only in the last 12 months do i seem to have cracked it. the fees are about 3% of everthing that goes through from paypal
No followup from cybertron?
Do you outsource any of the service? Is that what the part timers are?
The OP is describing the formula normal brick and mortar businesses use that turn over more than 1 million a year.
Referrals are the lifeline of many businesses.
Thanks for the share,i will use some tips
Many areas in Canada are also untapped. Many businesses slap up a static website that some advertising company promotes to them. The businesses buy these websites because;
They don't know any better
Their competitors don't know any better and bought a website before they did
Its quite funny actually. The retail I work for, all the "upper management" agreed and bought one of these crappy sites for over $10,000. I laughed and told my boss I could have done better for $100. He was not impressed with me and thought I was lying to be an asshole.
Nice guide! Thanks for sharing!
i really like this method good job
