I wanted to share my first success story here with you, and no I don't plan on releasing any WSO
I got a call this morning and the guy on the phone asked me to meet with him because he wanted to dominate local listings in google for his business (sound and audio provider). To be honest I was shocked because I just got into offline consulting and he was my very first client.
Even more shocking was the way he heard of me. Apparently, my friend that I used to work with told him about what I do online and he wanted me to do the same thing for his local business. So i met with him after doing a little keyword research and we sat down and arranged a deal. I offered him an seo backlinking service + blog creation and a monthly charge for upkeep.
We negotiated the contract for $500 with $105 monthly for upkeep of my services. He was really happy with it too. Now it might be low for those of you who are more experienced with offline consulting but for my first client I was pretty darn happy. Actually, I was so happy I went to a buffet to celebrate afterwards. Now I am motivated more than ever to find more offline consultation projects.
I was so inspired by my first client I went on a rampage and got
two more possible clients. One barber shop owner and the other is a
t-shirt designer. I knew the barber and the t-shirt designer just happened to be
at the right place at the right time. The barber is in the process of
getting a website completed and the t-shirt guy will give me a call
for a meeting so I can show him what I can do for his business
I hope all goes well...
