The Best Way To Begin A SEO Company - Learn How To Begin A SEO Business|}
It is nearly 14 years since I formally began my search engine optimization business. I can honestly say it's one of the best things I've ever attempted to do in life. It's also one of the most painful, stressful and frustrating things things that has happened to me. So here's the short list of what I've learned as its first manager, CEO and adviser.
Constantly be Prepared to Socialize
Stories, case studies, experiences, consequences -- these would be the stuffs of the future. There are tons of theories, tons of how-to's, tons of sales talk in our day and age. Stories hold enormous weight in pinning down a potential customer to a purchase.
Exterior of a revenue standpoint, story-telling in your circle of friends can make a huge impact in rippling out your company to other people. My very first enormous client (that's still my customer so far) came in the brief chat whilst riding the train on my way to my then day task. We were not really close. I advised him that I had been into SEO and shared its value and what it did for my site. He explained that he'd talk me.
Turns out that he did. I must close the deal.
After that lesson, I never stopped evangelizing.
Yes I understand, you would like to get paid a month. While it could be true that what you know is worth every penny to everything you are charging, no cost consultations construct trust. More frequently than not, it has let me get the entire organization.
Clients appreciate the little things. They also feel much more secure once you provide them more information about what they're getting in to and what they need to learn about other elements of internet marketing. You can leverage on giving them what they desire to understand rather than telling them vague generalities about the industry.
I have a client today that signed up because of their principal product's SEO and signed up with another search engine optimization firm because of their new product's SEO. They wanted to see who is the greater SEO services supplier. While I'm easily 60% more costly in my yearly retainer compared to the other SEO business, I gave away complimentary consultations to the proprietor.
"Call me anytime in the event that you need anything -- except for money." , I stated. And that he did. He predicted up to wake me up frequently times (I sleep soundly and wake up late while he's an early bird). But it was all worthwhile.
The entire business is now granted to us and we are only waiting for the contract of another (much more affordable) SEO company to expire. I don't know whether they are doing a good job or not. What I do understand is that I gave away free, anytime consultation -and it worked!
It's among my own trump cards on client acquisition.
Do not be Afraid to Jack up your Price
You need to know that SEO especially here in the Philippines is still considered 'fresh' by many businesses. The dominant (and effective) form of promotion here remains TV. That leaves us with an 'free market' plus a free market means that the budget is crazy.
There are companies that offer SEO for as little as $300 a month. And yes, they claim that it is white hat -- with all the linkbuilding tips you can ever imagine. If I tried to pull that stunt, I would be out of business in one month's time.
While I read Seth Godin's Linchpin, I knew the significance of pricing. Louis Vuitton can afford to charge that much since they are all for quality and exclusivity. I would like to be a company like that. That is 1 reason why we provide customer exclusivity for their niche/industry. And we also bill premium for this.
Companies can butt-heads on decreasing costs. It can be the weapon of choice to many SEO companies. The customers win and the SEO business loses.
My weapon of choice is increasing the standard of our services and building a brand. This way, pricing is both secondary and I am quite satisfied with the few genuinely fantastic customers I have.
Consider Louis Vuitton. Win.
