Inspired by the thread in this section of the forum where someone was selling videos + video ranking on the first page of Google for all searches related to the specific restaurant for a set amount per month, I went out and tried to do the same.
I put together a wordpress site, that covers most of what I do. I'll admit, I could make a better site, but I don't think it's all about that seeing as I provide them samples of videos that I would make for them, and a proposal is written up that is very easy to understand, etc.
I'm not getting many bites. Had one guy ask me for a sample vid in an email, where I actually got him a nice basic sample vid made with his details in it but I supplied that for him today - so no response yet. But not much of a response from any of the others yet either. I've had my caller call around 140 restaurants, of which probably around 100 or so gave us their email to send a proposal through (doesn't mean they were interested they just asked us to send it through probably because they get a lot of offers) and like I said, I've only heard back really from one.
It has been around 3 days since the first batch of emails went out, and I have sent out some proposals via email from the last three days, some each day.
Anyone doing something similar got any ideas on how to get the ball rolling? Thinking to do a video + vSEO to get it to the top of google for a restaurant or two for free for testimonials/reviews and also to show other clients what I can do for them as well.
The other guy doing this was charing $189 per month, which I think is too low. I am charging $250 for video production initially (it is a decent video actually - outsourced).
Then $299 per month on going guaranteeing their video is on the first page of Google, working towards the #1 spot over time (which I am sure I will actually achieve).
I don't think the price is a factor as I am sure I would have got a 'thats way too much' or something along those lines? Or perhaps they don't even bother to say 'too much' and just ignore it. Do you think the price is indeed too high? I just don't want to sell myself short, but at the same time, I dont want to be too low either (this service is valuable).
Any thoughts? I hope that if I get one or two, I start getting some referrals going because it seems quite hard to cold call and get some results (but lets hope in the next few days after the weekend I get a solid response or two)
