It's gonna look like bragging, but I'm just feelin' damn proud of myself

by JeremyL 19 replies
Hi friends,

I just wanted to share a great feeling I have at the moment before I leave the office tonight.

Today I finished a website project for a (mainstream) client which included logo design, web design and SEO. I launched the site yesterday.

A couple of hours ago I checked google for rankings and was very happy to see that my client's site www.keystoneinstallations.com.au was No 1 on Google.com.au for the 3 keyword strings we had decided upon for the SEO campaign and No 2 on Google.com for one of the keywords. This happened within 24 hours

Admittedly, it's not a fiercely competitive industry like others.

I used a linking strategy with some other keyword rich domain names that I suggested he (client) buy as well as a sitemap.xml submission through Googles webmaster tools.

Anyway, just wanted to share this news. I'm feelin good!

Cheers
Jeremy

      Excellent stuff and it demonstrates yet again how simple it really is to get good rankings on Google for business related keyword phrases if you just use some effective strategies.

      Great that you're putting your internet marketing SEO skills to use and turning them into real income for yourself too.

      Kindest regards,
      Andrew Cavanagh

                Do remember though that Google's results tend to bounce about, especially when you have a new site live.

                  Congrats!

                  Ranking for non competitive terms like that certainly is easy with a bit of basic SEO by your side. I've also had nice success with targeting local terms as well. You could get them ranked for things like that, and charge some extra $$$

                    Congrats Jeremy.

                    Sometimes this stuff is not easy, but if you do it right with a little research it really works.

                        I Love this Forum!!!

                        Thank you everyone for your kind words and well wishes!

                        As Matt, mentioned, it doesn't take a bunch of knowledge at all to rank highly for a non-competitive industry. Although, I do have 1 & 2 spots for my 2 entertainment companies which is in a very competitive industry not only in Australia, but worldwide.

                        It is something to consider, nonetheless, you can get some really nice earners from off-line businesses. We run our businesses out of a business centre where there are about 40+ small businesses offices and we are involved in a fair bit of person-to-person networking. I speak to many small business owners and it's amazing, (actually I'm genuinely gob-smacked!) at how little they know about web technologies / email / seo etc.

                        I take pride in customer service and I am straightforward with what I can deliver to a small business client. TRUST is everything I believe.

                        If you are good with people and have patience with business owners who know very little about the internet, there is a lot of opportunity out there. Also, because a service like this is localised, it's less competitive. I do find that small business people are extremely appreciative of advice regarding e-commerce, and if they feel there are geniune benefits to a service you might provide... they do have the bucks to pay you!! (I think Herb Cohen said it best - "You Can Negotiate Anything")

                        Obviously, there's more to consider with partly offline activities, ie space for client meeting, business stationery, hard copy promo materials, however person-to-person transactions can indeed be lucrative.

                        Once again, thanks to you all for you kind words. Your support has made my day!
                        PS: Yeah Brian... Beers go down a treat!

                          Congratulations, Jeremy, on a job well done. It IS something to be proud of. Plus, the good effects will bring you referrals for more of the same, especially in your close-knit business community there. So you can enjoy it now, and enjoy even more later!

                          I'd have to second that. I often feel a little lost reading some of the threads here, since some of the content goes right over my head...but then I talk to some of my 'regular people' friends and I realize that basic web surfing is as advanced as most people get. If they actually make a purchase online, then they graduate a level.
                          Good work on the SEO!

      Thanks Guys!

      I have spent quite a bit of time in 'student' mode with SEO. I guess its paying off now.
      I like that Babe Ruth saying Brian "If you can do it .... it ain't braggin'!" - Very cool

      Cheers
