Then I thought I should run a PPC campaign for my keywords and increase traffic that way (I had just gotten 2 coupons in the mail). So in case I rent it out, the client would get some decent results right away.
The thought was then that I would continue to build their organic rankings after they start paying.
My goal is to rent out 3 sites a week. I just don't have the funds at the moment to do all the SEO on all of them and then wait for top rankings. This way the client pays while I build the rankings and they are getting results while the organic rankings are being built.
In my research I keep running into ReachLocal.
What Online Marketing Costs | ReachLocal
Their prices are very high and they only do PPC for the most part. I heard that they only put about 50% of that into PPC. Once in a while I see a reachlocal site where it looks like they attempt some organic rankings, but they are usually very poor.
So with this hybrid model the client can have instant results and I have instant cash flow for myself and to build their organic. I just need to find the right price point that I can rent these out at. It will probably be cheaper than ReachLocal with a ton more value.
Once I have enough sites with a decent income I think I will go back to organic only. Then I can afford SEO and waiting for rankings before I rent. Who knows by then I may get a bunch of referrals, too. I am just trying to jump start the process and make some quick money.
