    I had read the "CHECKLIST: How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency & Hit $5K in Less than 90 Days" thread a while back. Got caught up with some personal issues for sometime, but finally managed to get back here and stumbled on that thread again.

    My Advantages:
    • Am pretty f**ing good at SEO
    • Have some SEO assets (PBN, news sites) around the law niche, so I most likely can do that very economically
    • Know a tiny bit of python for simple web automation tasks.
    • Live in a third world country with a large English speaking population. This would make it easier to scale things and outsource easily.
    My Obstacles:
    • Terrible. Terrible work ethic. I am working on it. Woke up at 4am and got started at 4.30am today. On an average I only work 10-12 hours a week.
    • Low capital. I am in a third world country at the moment, don't make much. I might have maybe $100/week to put towards this.
    • Suck at sales. I have never sold anything to anyone I already didn't know (dropship site doesn't count as sales experience). All of my past freelancing gigs were with people I already knew, or people that approached me due to recommendations from their friends. Having a bit of an accent wouldn't help me either. Maybe am overthinking this. Anyhow, I am trying to avoid getting on the phone as much as possible.
    Progress so far:
    • Finalized a name
    • I am no gfx designer, but decided to do the logo myself and save some money. Yes, I am a cheapskate.
    • Setup an email + built the basic site (home/services/contact).
    • Got a US based VOIP number just in case someone does decide to talk on the phone etc.
    Next Steps:
    • Figure out the different SEO packages, pricing in particular
    • Brainstorm a well-defined sales process, write the email sales copy etc.
    • Setup a tool like SuiteCRM to keep track of things
    • Since I already have web assets around the lawyer niche, I was thinking about going after local lawyers in US. Make a list of 50 lawyers in 10 different cities that look like they could use my services.
    • Setup the bank account + paypal. Second option is to use 2CO. I don't know if 2CO allows individuals to singup. Opening a bank account in the name of the firm is going to take some time.

    Good luck with the journey!

    Don't worry about the accent. I have one as well and so far it has not caused me problems. Play it to your advantage!

    What VOIP are you using? I set up Sonetel and it is absolutely horrible. Could really use another service.
