He lives in the US, is self-employed, and has a family. The American dream right? For he and his wife to have a second child, they would need to get a group health plan at least 60 days prior to the wife becoming pregnant. Say that everything works out to be on-time, they are looking about an increased cost of about 20-25k over the course of a 9 month period to have a child in the United States!
I really like the idea of setting out exactly what is wrong with a client’s approach and the process they need to take to improve, it really helps to show the value in the SEO service delivered, and backing this up with real life data that demonstrates the cash value to their business is the clincher.
Sure I can advertise other places…but I can’t reach Google’s customers there. As an individual I can choose to use another search engine, but as a business I cannot magically make potential customers do the same. I HAVE to use Google or give up a huge market share.
It’s recommended to have your NAP or local information listed on every page. If you have multiple locations, you can either use multiple landing pages, or have them all listed on a single “contact us” page, which is a popular approach.

One online business industry that is particularly popular at the moment is the ‘Search Engine Optimization’ industry, or simply SEO. It is one of the only industries that opens their doors even to the most inexperienced individuals, who have a serious passion for doing business. Not only is it easier to be employed within this industry, but it’s reasonably simple to start your own SEO business!
That really depends on the business. If you are charging people a lot of money and not bringing results then you will lose clients. So honestly, you must have a process that works at a competitive price if you really want to make money.
You can also thrive in the face of competition by focusing on a niche. You can combine your passion / hobby with your SEO skill and provide a laser-targeted service for specific people. Example of such niche services are: SEO services for Chiropractic practitioners, SEO services for fashion designers, etc.
