    EXECUTION After almost 7 years on here, I have finally have a revenue-generating business

    What's up guys, figured i'd give an update as it's been 6 months. I have failed. I was profiting around $2-2.2k a month before taxes and this isn't feasible. I am going to have to get a job and my contracts dried up. There were 2 main problems I had: 1. I was working in my business and not on...

    article submission problem: SEO gurus please help

    What is your goal with these submissions? Are you looking for a guest post where you get a link back to your website? Unless you have an established relationship or have really good content (and I'm taking super good), then they will just ignore you or ask you to pay an "editorial fee"...

    EXECUTION After almost 7 years on here, I have finally have a revenue-generating business

    For sure, also the client I lost has asked me to keep posting monthly articles for them. While it isn't as much as the big SEO package at least it's something. July revenue i'm looking at so far: Monthly SEO Packages: $2000 + $500 Monthly Articles: $120 One-time projects completed (Upwork)...

    EXECUTION After almost 7 years on here, I have finally have a revenue-generating business

    Yes, I plan to ask my old client for referrals soon. We just ended the contract the other day so I want to wait a little. I bootstrapped so far and don't have too much money to reinvest. I am living very frugally. While I do have savings I do not want to tap into it at all. I want to keep...

    EXECUTION After almost 7 years on here, I have finally have a revenue-generating business

    Update: Lost my biggest client. $1350 which is like 40% of my revenue was gone. The initial 6-month contract ended and I assumed we would renew since I have been killing it for them. Unfortunately they are shifting their focus away from SEO. I felt sad and this is the first time I really...

    GOLD! CHECKLIST: How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency & Hit $5K in Less than 90 Days

    How are you doing your research? It isn't possible for EVERYONE in a niche to have a strong online presence. If everyone is "strong" then no one is. Strong is relative. For example, in SEO if the company is not on the first page they are not strong. Only about 4-7 businesses get on the first...

    GOLD! CHECKLIST: How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency & Hit $5K in Less than 90 Days

    Big city = more opportunities I would much rather operate my marketing business in a major city/region then a small city. Don't compete with the major marketing companies and look for smaller businesses to start. There are tons in big cities.

    WEB SCHOOL I have a follow up call with my first prospect - how do I close the deal?

    Yes, if your OK with working for a low price then why not? Especially if your just starting you can charge low prices, build your portfolio and slowly scale up to bigger projects.

    WEB SCHOOL I have a follow up call with my first prospect - how do I close the deal?

    You'll learn to be upfront about pricing. I always state a bracket monthly rate (for me I usually say $1-3k) so you guys are at least on the same page. It's a waste of time for both parties if he's looking for a $100 website. You can't convince these kinds of people and you just have to let...

    WEB SCHOOL I have a follow up call with my first prospect - how do I close the deal?

    If you know SEO, then you should upsell that. If you know SMM, then you should upsell that. But you shouldn't just create him social profiles and put that on the website, there is no value there.

    WEB SCHOOL I have a follow up call with my first prospect - how do I close the deal?

    First, communicate the value and make sure he understands the value you can provide for him. At the end, give him your pricing and go for the close. Also "build him a facebook/twitter/instagram page to rank better on google" is not how SEO works.

    EXECUTION On the Fastlane - Starting My Own Digital Marketing Agency

    Agree with Andy, you haven't taken any real steps yet. The only thing that matters in digital marketing businesses like this are SALES. When I first started back in December, I spent ONE DAY on building a quick wordpress website. Kind of like an MVP, then I spent the next month focusing on...

    Selling a business?

    You should definitely contact an actual business broken for a business this big. Congrats on $300k/months revenue though that's impressive. I'm always curious but what is your profit margin on the $300k. You don't have to answer if you don't want to though.

    EXECUTION After almost 7 years on here, I have finally have a revenue-generating business

    Update: As May is coming to an end, I wanted to post some screenshots. I have been seeing growth for these past couple months. While these may seem like really small numbers (they are), I am proud of what I have accomplished so far. Still no where near my 2019 goals but we are getting there...
