Google is one of the biggest (by market capitalization) most profitable companies in history, largely due to the fact that its search engine has become a fundamental component of the modern purchase process. It doesn’t matter where or how people hear about a product or service (via social media, television, word of mouth, etc), almost all consumers will “google it” before making a final purchase decision.

For your business to succeed you need customers and most of them will come to you through referrals. You will need to build good relationships with professionals in your industry so that they can refer customers to you.
As I said, luck is usually the sum of preparation + opportunity. Give yourself a pat on the back for being so then keep up the good work. This field changes so often that it’s almost impossible to stay current on everything and still have time to apply that knowledge to your actual work! That’s why I suggest specializing in a particular aspect of the field. It narrows your focus, concentrates your skills, and makes you more valuable to clients (not to mention employers!). Congrats on your success, Vanessa!
Would like to put a bug in your ear about providing MySEOAuditor.com users with the ability to “switch” between customized report themes within MySEOAuditor.com for at least running manual reports from the backend. This small “custom theme switcher” would be a great addition to your current custom profile feature and would be SUPER DUPER handy for SEOs who perform white-label SEO work for other agencies regularly in addition to our own freelance SEO work or SEO / Online Marketing Businesses… Being able to switch between “customized report profiles” would save me a TON of time, hassle and headache personally! At the moment, I’m having to cut and paste in “customized” profiles setups (which I’ve saved into Evernote to at least save me a little time), since i have to go through these paces every or every other time I run a new manual report. Oi! It would be absolutely amazing to just be able to quickly switch report branding from one agency profile setting to another that I perform white-label SEO work for when I want to quickly run a manual report for a new client prospect. So, how about it? Pretty, pretty pixel please? Hehe!
Try it on your site. It’s 100% free for 10 days. You don’t need any money or a credit card. Sorry for the pitch, but this is important. Again, I literally created MySiteAuditor because the contact forms on my agency’s website were so unreliable.

The most basic thing to do is to make sure that you know all you need before starting up the business. It may seem like an easy thing, but a true expert takes years of practice and reading on this topic. The most important things are: to identify and analyze the relevant keywords, to write qualitative content with the keywords, to use Google Analytics, to write good meta tags and descriptions and many more.
My advice to anyone who is looking to start an SEO business is actually learn how to do SEO on your own sites for a period of time before actually taking on clients, test numerous things and actually do some heavy research first.
Once you have joined these groups and been accepted (some require a moderator to approve you but not all), if you then click on the member list of the group, you will see that there is an option to private message each one of them. It’s not uncommon to find LinkedIn groups in your area with hundreds of business owners in them, the opportunities are endless!
Many people think that lack of initial money to start your own business is what is stopping them from leaving their jobs. Yes, it is true that money can limit us, but that is only if you let it! A famous Buddhist entrepreneur once said; “Money only becomes a problem when you treat it as a problem!”
I once read from an agency owner that it’s impossible to scale if you have 30+ client meetings a month. I don’t agree! I believe keeping that connection is important if you want clients to stay with you for the long-haul. And if you don’t have the time to make many of the meetings, get an account manager that can.
