What are the best Offline services to offer clients?

Profile picture of the author Just Jarius by Just Jarius Posted: 07/11/2012
I know this is a little bit of a broad question, but I just wanted to know which services do you feel are the best to offer clients?

When I say "best" I am looking for something that is lucrative, can be easily outsourced, offers a real value to the client, etc.

I know there are several services that can be offered but I'm trying to narrow it down to a good few. Don't wanna get bogged down with too many things. Thanks!

    Website creation. It can be easily outsourced for less than what you will make the customer pay.

    Yea, that's definitely on the list along with Mobile websites and SEO. Just wondering what else was working well for everyone.

    For example, I'm interested in Rep Management, but is that something that can easily be outsourced?

    Although I offer various offline services, I always start with Webdesign.

    Why? It's an easy sale for customers who either don't have one or need their current site improved.

    More importantly, it's a great gateway product. Once you sell a nice website optimisation naturally follows, then you can move into Social Media Management, Mobile, or whatever else you specialise in.

    This works well for me.

    The best service is the one you can offer, speak intelligently about, develop a bulletproof system to deliver, and your market consistently has a need for. Doesn't really matter what that product or service is - just find out what they need and deliver.

    I think Web Design, Mobile Design and SEO are the best to sell frankly because these are the easiest to say you 'NEED' these whereas PPC campaigns are not so, well, 'in need'.

    Right on man. Something that you know will deliver results, and that you can implement without hassle!

    If your selling something for the sake of selling it, you're going to have a hard time growing your biz.

    It's worth noting for anyone reading this - when I first started going after offline businesses I fell victim to "the more the better" syndrome. I thought if I offered more services, I would get more clients...nope.

    I was doing web design, seo, sms, ppc, reputation mgmt, social media marketing, direct mail, you name it.

    But what I slowly found out was that my core clients - the people that will stay with me forever - they value websites and SEO. That's it. So, I ditched the other stuff. I'm not saying the other stuff doesn't have value, it really does, but 99% of the time I stick to my core services.

    So, now I do those two things, and my business has grown beyond what I could have imagined. My point is, find your groove - find the thing your clients love - and get really good at delivering it to them.

    Content submissions? How do you plan on trying to sell someone on content submissions?

    Right now, 'Reputation Management' has proven to be a great foot in the door technique, because you can educate your Client and have things up and running, with an immediate truly valuable service in a matter of days or weeks, at a time when many are desperate for help in this area and have no idea where to turn.

    Then obviously, once you have delivered real results in their business, you can offer an array of 'Value Ad Services' with ease, through Consultative Sales as their Go to Expert.

    Tell them that you will set up their own WordPress blog for them for X payments of XXX $.

    I've been successful with that. Mostly because my clients and other business owners have HEARD about blogs, but they are just not confident or they don't know where to go in order to set one up.

    Well every service produces income. There is no best. Because at the end of the day you are the one setting your own prices.

    Your success doesn't boil down to what service you're offering. It's all about how you market yourself and your service. It's all about the effort your willing to put into getting out there and attracting clients.

    The harder you're willing to work, the better the pay off. and that goes for any service.

    sms to restaurants. you dorn't need to outsource it, you can deliver the work yourself and it won't take you longer than 2 minutes every time you send out a texts for a client.

    plus they benefit a lot from it. for them its like having their own groupon

    I know a chick who would go around to different shops around town telling them that they would get increased exposure by setting up fan pages.

    You could set up all these social networking sites and have the owners write content and then just syndicate everything if you want them to rank for a keyword.

    Or you could just help them get on facebook/other social networks.

    The best service to offer is one that will provide the best ROI to your clients.

    This will make them love and refer you.

    However, you have to sit down with them to find out what that service will be in their particular circumstances but it works every time!
