So I finally sold my first website to a client. This is how the story went:
I've been advertising my business using Social Media Marketing. You can find me on LinkedIn. I try to post on my LinkedIn on a daily basis which posts to my twitter and Facebook Fan Page.
During the day, I'm a full-time Sr. IT Analyst and my manager has been following what I've been doing. Anyway, he e-mailed me about his cousin which has been hired as a 'Marketing Manager' for a Mechanic Shop in Brooklyn, NY (I'm in Atlanta)
After a couple of conversations with her, we agreed to work together. She's also agreed to refer business owners to me once the project is complete. I honestly am not making much from this project, however considering that I am completely outsourcing the 6 page site, I'll take it. (Plus the experience)
$700 ($300 profit)
$10 per/month hosting (hostgator reseller account)
Made sure to have a contract in place
They filled out and returned a detailed questionnaire
My next move:
I'm going to try and sell them SEO services to drive targeted traffic to their website.
I'm going to ask the client for the referrals promised and contact them via e-mail/phone.
BTW, all this was done without my website being up. My website is still in the works. Anyway, I would like your advice.
I have $300 that I will reinvest into my business to continue growing it. How would you invest the $300.00 to target dentists for SEO services? What would you do?
I hope this encourages other Warriors to sell whatever service they have, but making sure they market themselves first. You can do anything you'd like.
Thank you in advance for any advice you guys give me!
