Hi all,

I have an idea for a business that would generate leads to local companies for their services. I did some initial research and believe the idea is niche enough, but has enough volume to lead to a lot of paying customers.

I'm pretty new to this and basically just wondering how I would get started with this? Should I build my website first and reach out to local businesses work out a commission structure? Or should I reach out to the businesses first? How exactly do people get started doing this?

I know MJ started with his taxi business and was very successful at converting browsers to customers, but how exactly do I get started doing something similar? Are there any good resources/guides to read about?

Thanks,

D

So pick the service youre thinking of and google "service lead gen" then checkout the competition.

To answer the question though build the site and generate leads first , then you can give leads away upfront to grease the wheels on a sale.

One thing to keep in mind is your ppc cost while your trying to rank the site organically , whats a lead worth? Whats the competition charge? Hoe many clicks will become sales?
