FINALLY Got My first Client!!! A $1500 a Month Client

27 replies
sigh I am all smiles right now.. I Finally secured the client, cheque has cleared and I am starting the SEO campaign as I type this.

This Client is a relative though, not that it matters he is still a business man and wouldn't just give me money because He knows me.

Anyway what happened was. I contacted him a few months earlier and told him what I was doing and he was not interested .. Oh well I moved on to the next prospects and so on. I was with him again yesterday and he over heard me explaining to my sister how valuable this actually is and he asked me about it again ( I think he was just starting a conversation) . So lucky for me I had my laptop with and showed him exactly what happens on Google and that near 600 people where searching for his services but couldn't find him. Lets just say he was Semi sold until he saw one of his BIGGEST competitors show up on the search and I promise you he was practically glued to my screen and signing the cheque at the same time.

When He asked how much I would charge him I replied , $1500 and all he said was ok come through to my office tomorrow and pick up the cheque. I just couldn't believe it.

I now realize how valuable they see our services. He is a Building Contractor So he knows if I could get him even ONE project every 2 Months it would more than cover what he is paying me.

Anyway I have always wanted to be the next to post this. I am just so exited.
PS: He also told me if this works for him, he has a few Engineer, Architect and Consultants who he thinks could use my service. So I am keeping my fingers crossed.

OK anyway let me get back to getting clients for MY client Ciao!!!!

    Cheers!!!

    Great story on how to "show" the value of your services.

    Every business owner (person for that matter) has their buttons that push them. If you can find that trigger early, the sale will come easily.

    Great to read about your success!! Build on that momentum and get 2 more clients by the end of October!

    Best wishes in the future.

    Congratulations!

    Now, the trick is to put in $5000 worth of work and build a case study around him. If you can show value quick (first 30 days) and that he's made money with you, you can build a nice case study and target building contractors, using your case study. Then your income with explode!

      Voazi makes a very good point.

      The faster you're able to provide RESULTS, the more likely your client will be to continue AND provide referrals. If you're doing straight seo, you'll need to time to get the results you desire - perhaps you'll want to consider a small ppc campaign to get some traffic/leads right out of the gate.

      My 2 cents.

    Congrats. It's all downhill from here. Like Voasi said, do a great job and build a case study. That will sell everyone else. Case studies can't be emphasized enough.

    Great work.

    Really, you only need a couple of clients to start in this business and if you know how to deliver and then some, things will go fast and you won't have to cold call anyone ever again.

    Congrats!

    I'm all the way new to this concept of offline marketing. Stupid question:
    Where would I start to "learn" SEO and autoresponders?
    Is a computer actually necessary? I ask that question, because I don't "own" a computer. I just use others...hey you gotta start somewhere!

    Great story. My first paying clients for web design was a relative as well. It is really motivating to start getting paid some decent money and it can provide the catalyst you need to grow your business.

    Good luck!
