    When I go on your site, I have very little idea what it's about.
    The more time I spent on there the more confused I got.

    Check out socialtrigger.com. It's run by Derek Halpern and he gives away an amazing amount of actionable content relating to psycology, converting leads, website design and a lot more.

    find a yellow pages directory,
    check how many businesses don't have websites,
    talk to them and explain the value of a website for their businesses, and tell them you can do it for them for an affordable price.
    You will be getting businesses continuously.

    Maybe u can even sell them a monthly package for updates. Do a superB job, so they will refer you to others as well.

    I say write high quality content with your phone number or online order link and the act of very high quality content with the keywords and long tail information will actually get you the SEO traffic that you are after and the search engines will find you all of those people. It's a great way of filtering.

    Write blog posts regarding the benefits of such services, or write how-to guides to show your readers that you know what you're doing. Also, don't be too promotional as your posts will look to be nothing more than an over-decorated and lengthy sales letter.

    Also, why not start your own authority site? Since you have a blog, you can start adding in back-links to help you get traffic to your main site. Having an authority site will help customers understand that you mean business.

    When you have your own website, not just a blog, your customers will take you more seriously.

    The first advice I’d give to business bloggers looking to ‘sell’ through their blog is to be careful.
    While blogs can be used as a tool for selling they are at their best when they are relational, conversational and offer their readers something useful that will enhance their lives in some way. Ask most blog subscribers why they follow a particular blog and you’ll find out that in almost every case they get something out of the blog (whether it be entertainment, advice, research, ideas etc).

    Every company will have customers who will subscribe to a purely sales oriented blog because they are fans of the products that that company makes and want to keep up to date – however in most cases this will be a fairly small group of people.

    Most people will not react overly positively to a blog that is just sales spin. We get it all day, on the radio, on tv, in our inbox, in our real mailbox etc.

    So what is a business blogger wanting to ‘sell’ to do?

    If I were a business blogger (and I guess I am in a way – but that’s another discussion) I would spend more time actively engaging with and enhancing the lives of my readers (and potential readers) than selling to them.
    Make your primary focus to build trust, credibility, profile and perception of expertise while doing everything you can to develop a large, loyal and engaging community around your blog and you’ll find that on those occasions you do sell that your message will be all the more effective.

    You’ll also find that instead of pushing your products on readers that they’ll push themselves on your products.

    As others have said, you need to write posts about the services you're marketing - but you need to do it with the end-user in mind.

    SEO, for example, is the most unrelenting boring subject to most regular business people until you explain the benefit to them - more $ALES. Then their eyes light up.

    You just need to write blog posts that connect your services (SEO) with their objectives (make more sales) to win them over.
