Part 4: SEO Arbitrage - Selling SEO
Without Doing the Work
Just because you're selling SEO doesn't mean you have to do the work. In fact you don't have to know how to do SEO all that well to sell it. However, it's still recommended that you understand the basics.
So how do you end up not having to do the work? You simply hire other people to do it for less than what your clients are paying you.
Many offline business are willing to pay a much higher rate than your typical online business. This is especially true if you're working with a high end business like dentists, doctors, and painters. It's not uncommon for some businesses to pay over $1000/mo for SEO!
These high end businesses are willing to pay a lot because every single customer that you bring in to them could be worth thousands.
