"Try to learn something about everything and everything about something."
I own and operate several online websites. Many people are interested in starting an Internet business or creating a website for an existing business. I encourage you to do it, and I love doing business on the Internet. But there are several things you should know before you start. Like most things that are worthwhile there's a lot of work involved in developing and maintaining a successful online business. For the vast majority of people, publishing a one size fits all website shown on infomercials or even offered by many reputable hosting services generate little or no revenue. Selecting the right products to sell is an ongoing problem.
The purpose of the service offered on this page is to offer you one hour of advice tailored to your specific business. There are hundreds of things you should know and consider. They're not all covered in one hour. After that hour you will not be an expert.. in anything new related to Internet Marketing anyway. But you'll know what you're up against, what you'll need to be successful and if selling on the Internet is something you want to do. Having some basic information on the front end can prevent you from making some expensive mistakes and avoid wasting valuable time.
You'll get an overall view of Internet Marketing, and why Search Engine Optimization is only one aspect of selling on the Web.
You'll understand the skills you will either have to master or buy to be successful.
You'll understand what to look for in an Internet Marketing Consultant.
We'll take a QUICK look at your existing website if one exists so you have an idea of where you stand.
I'll answer your questions from the viewpoint of someone who understands business and understands what it takes to make payroll.
There will be no contracts to sign and no long-term commitments. In fact, if you are not 100% satisfied with the information you get for your $200 I will refund your money.
Going forward, if you want advice you can purchase as much time as you want at the rate of $100 /hr. billed in quarter hour increments.
You already have a great product and a website, but your online results have been disappointing. I'll give it a quick review so you can get an idea of what it will take to improve the site's performance and conversion.
I sign a non-compete agreement designating that I will not sell any products or services sold on my client's site.
I sign an agreement stating that I will not accept competing clients. Some web marketing consultants boast that they are experts in a particular industry and that's a good thing if it's local SEO they're not representing competing companies in the same locality. But what if it's National SEO? Think about it. You would be getting paid by two or more people to accomplish the same goal. How do you ethically reconcile it if you're more successful with one client than another? In my mind, you can't because you violate you fiduciary obligation with the more successful client if you share the tactic and violate your fiduciary obligation to other clients if you don't share it.
I ask my clients to sign a non-compete agreement that they will not sell any product or service sold in my stores.
I bill once a month with payment due upon receipt. I accept cash, all major credit cards and PayPal.
I provide a detailed explanation work performed by date.
No Risk Full Cash Back Customer Satisfaction Guarantee.
I DO NOT SHARE OR SELL ANY INFORMATION.
I will sign whatever non-disclosure or non-compete agreements required.
Payment can be made by Check or Money Order for anyone not wanting to use their credit card under any circumstances over the Internet.
I will not constantly badger you with annoying junk emails.
