Start off by partnering with a couple local web design freelancers, then start offering web design to your SEO clients. After all, many SEO projects require an overhaul of the client’s site because the development is super old and very SEO unfriendly.

Quite a bit can be gleaned by seeing an experienced account manager deal with various aspects including: pushing back the on deadlines, communicating with clients, coordinating with various departments within the agency and meetings.
I wouldn’t hire a beginner to build my house, so why would I expect a beginner to help with something even more valuable? If you are a beginner, reading up on SEO isn’t enough. You need real world experience.
With that established, what you would need to do before you go to the meeting with your client is look at the amount of keywords you have researched for them and then look at the various costs that the SEO reseller company are charging for the amount of keywords to optimise.
the difficult thing here is that when you start… then you are a startup as well. An established company does not want to work with you most of the time for the same reasons you want to work with them. Therefore you have to work with the B-players at first until you gain some momentum. Also it is very important to know your own value and price appropriately. But that is not when you start. When you start you work your ass off for nothing. Thats just the nature of things.

See when you first started your SEO agency. What kind of tactics did you use? I know you can use white-hat and with strong content you can climb to #1 and for black-hat SEO is basically spam. What am trying to say is when you first joined “Elpac” and started to do SEO for them, did you just basically spam your way to the top because I know back in 2012/2013 you could climb your way to the top by just simply spamming your keywords – manually build backlinks use tools. I know the algorithms always change and every time it gets harder. See what would you do? SPAM your way to the top or do it the legit away? (I don’t even think there is a legit way and there’s only one way). What would you say to a beginner what kind of tactics should I do? Am not asking to give up your secret.
It’s easy to assume the buyer has all the power, but this isn’t true. If they’re talking to you, they have already indicated they want what you have. You are offering something that grows their business.
