With this kind of investment and ongoing costs, seeking an SEO business for sale and going that route starts to make a lot of sense as an option. When you buy an established SEO business, at least there is a local track record and (presumably) some existing SEO equity in the business. In a franchise relationship, you are buying into the strength and recognition of the existing franchise brand – and with Internet marketing franchises, there aren’t any with strong brand recognition. And if you’re not buying into a brand, then what are you paying for?

“If you decide to work with us then you are the only [insert industry] we will be working with in [insert city/country/continent].” – Explain that while you have been in contact with other businesses in their niche/area/industry, if they subscribe to your SEO services, it will come with a guarantee that they will be the only organisation you work with in that niche/industry in that city/country/continent. Obviously amend this based on what sort of company you are pitching to, a local accountant for example will be slightly different to a multi-national company operating in numerous countries.

The last day of September in 2003 was almost like any other day. I woke up at 5:30 a.m., showered, got dressed, and began my one hour commute to work in my 1999 Honda Accord. I got there at about 6:59 a.m., sat in my cubicle, and pretended to work for an hour or two. What I was really doing was mentally preparing myself to walk into my boss’s office and quit! But I wasn’t just quitting this job, I was quitting corporate America. I was done with hours or traffic, 12 hour days, cubicles, and bosses.

Great information. I especially like the fact that you broke down the difference between in house SEO vs SEO firm.

With that said, with any client that you are working with, you should know all about their business and you will be able to serve them just fine.
He said doing both would teach me invaluable lessons on doing hands-on SEO and also help give back to the online community. He was right on all counts, and I am forever indebted to him for his sage advice.
Ideally, this should be a top down approach that looks at the goals of the business and determines where the opportunities are in search and the wider digital landscape. There is a good Whiteboard Friday on this over at Moz.com.
