I have been working on this one niche site which I have setup as directory/ profile website. I have optimized specific pages for local keywords.
For example: city name +cuisine type
I'm starting to see pages starting to rank and traffic is starting coming in. I need some opinions on my sales approach. I have had this approach down in my mind before I even built the site.
Each of the optimized pages will carry 6-10 spots where restaurants can claim a spot for their business to be on the first page of Google through my website. They will be given a 1 page profile with all information about their restaurant as well as a video and photos of their establishment.
I'm thinking of just adding restaurants into the spots, let their profiles sit there for a week, walk into the restaurant, show them they are ranking on the first page google for a very targeted keyword (city + cuisine) and show them the page view count installed at the bottom of each page. Hopefully the view counts, their profile already up and ready, and ranking on first page of google will lead them into the sale.
I'm willing to offer first 30 days free to people that don't budge or see the advantage of it and or else $89/month.
What are your opinions? I would really love to hear what John Durham and Amir have to say about this.
