I’ve chosen to focus my own personal brand on keyword research, which has allowed me to build products like my book, and more recently my keyword research training course, but in addition to develop specific services.
Get your clients some rankings: It is important to use your portfolio to show. If a client sees that you are ranking for a keyword that is according to its industry, they might contact you. So, it is very important to maintain a loss of the portfolio so that you can start.
Throughout your SEO company’s website, strategically place free downloads that your visitors will love. For example, do some research on pricing in the SEO industry, create a simple one or two page report, and give it a way for free on your website as long as the visitor shares that free download first. In exchange for sharing your website with a quick click, your visitor gets a very valuable resource (with your name on it). It’s a huge win for you and your visitor. Below I’ve listed my favorite tools for giving away a free download in exchange for sharing your site.
One emerging element of technical SEO is the creation of open data sets or APIs. If your business will thrive by getting your inventory or content into as many places as possible, consider creating data feeds or APIs for third-party developers to use.
I’ve struggled with whether I want to work for clients or work on my own authority site. I know there is good money in both. I am willing to bet that the folks ranking at the top for stuff like “best hosting” or “hosting reviews” etc must make at least 40k a month. You can make the same amount with an agency but then you would also have to deal with clients.

I’m same with you when I started my business , I also less than $100 in my bank account, 0 in saving , 0 income , my car was towed because I didn’t have any money pay for the installment, my parents didn’t understand what I was doing that time, deceived by customer T_T……..etc.I’m deeply understanding the bitterness of an entrepreneurs. After few years when you see your business growing up , the public sour things of the past is worth paying ^^
Keyword research is one of the most important ways you can make sure your site is “speaking the same language” as your visitors. If you operate a local restaurant, do you think more people are searching for “tacos” or “meat with a tortilla folded around it”?
Most websites will have a hard time generating enough organic links to raise their rankings in search engines. This is why link building is such a popular services. But you can get started on building quality links by doing some of the following activities.
Finding clients’ is just one phase of the game, educating clients is a different ball game entirely. There is a high probability that most of your clients will be small business owners that have neither heard of the word “SEO”, nor know how it works.
Awesome post! Thanks for sharing your experience. My question is does this still hold water? has SEO agency or digital marketing agency field gotten too crowded to compete or are there still ample opportunities to carve out a niche and provide good services, SEO or otherwise, to businesses? Thanks again, big fan!
