3. Do not worry about selling. The main reason behind that is that you are going to act as a marketing consultant, and not a vendor.
4. For your first client, choose the businesses that will be easier to get leads for. Could you tell me why this is a good idea? High end businesses such as dentists or plastic surgeons are of course less likely to be easy to generate leads for as they have so much value, compared to a plumber for instance.
5. Finally, reduce your fee by 50%. And this is important because of why? Of course this is not charity work as you will offer this discount and you will ask the client to make a testimonial for you. This way, you will get instant and easy marketing for yourself. Are there any additional reasons?
As you follow these 5 tips carefully you are very likely to have very satisfactory results with launching your internet marketing business for the local businesses. You will then enjoy the many fruits, joys and benefits thereof. When you ignore them, best get ready for worse results than those you could otherwise achieve.
