Whitespark’s citation intake and reports are non-branded so if you upsell this to clients, they probably won’t know you outsourced this. They also offer a citation clean-up service if they’re a complete mess.
The biggest challenge relates to trust. SEO and Internet marketers have become the used car salesmen of tech (no offense to used car salesmen!). There are several reasons why business owners do not trust SEO agencies:
You’re probably asking yourself now, ‘What should I be saying in the meeting???’, glad you asked, let’s cover what you need to do and say in the meeting to ensure you give yourself the best chance of closing the deal…
PayPal: PayPal *IS* an option, however, they are extremely unreliable. PayPal has by far the worst customer service and support I’ve ever experienced from any company, BAR NONE!
