Prior to this, I've promoted my relative's business, with pretty good results (first page for a good number of keywords, and #1 for few). All of this was done through honest marketing, simply by implementing the things that google wants you to implement. (On/off site SEO, Directories, Local Businesses Listings, Facebook, Twitter etc).
Also I have a lot of experience doing SEO for my personal blogs and websites.
Like I said, this week, I'll have an opportunity to pitch my services for the first time to a real client. I will actually ask him to barter some of his labor for mine, but I am confused about how much I should estimate the value of my labor to be.
Since I am new do doing this professionally, I was simply going to suggest a $10 per hour value. I know its low, but should sound like a bargain to him.
But of course I wanted to check with the warriors first, to see what you guys might think.
Also any other tips in dealing with offline clients will be much appreciated, I am a bit nervous
