£3k/mo contracts sound sexy

But there’s endless people paying £100-£1k/month just for:

- Basic website
- Hosting
- “Support”
- bit of google ads

Most are getting a bad service...

So, create a better offer

Running website = truly embedded in company + secure client for years.
Used to call 50-100 local biz’s a day

Selling my services

Tons of my clients were in the same boat

Monthly payments to a company like Yell

But no continuous benefits

Steal these clients from MFers like Yell in 2021

Low effort, good LTV, easy to help etc.
Just had this msg in

Great local tradesman who I poached from Yell

He was paying tons per month for low amount of leads

I re-did his website

Got him top for his KWs

Smashed his GMB

Now it’s basically hands off

Low effort for me, consistent lead generation for him Image

Selling Local SEO to Yell customers works well

They’re familiar with:

- Paying monthly
- Getting nothing
- An impersonal service

I called thousands of these guys.

Many are unhappy.

I have ex-Yell clients

Yell do us a favor by priming local customers to pay monthly

Yet they deliver nothing, usually.

This allows us to swoop in and outperform Yell in every way:

- Results
- Communication
- Real relationship
- Bespoke approach
The problem we face?

Yell customers get bombarded a LOT

In order to win their business, you’ll need to:

1. Be different
2. Followup a lot
3. Have a great offer
4. Fix their problems

Let me explain these four points...

When making a local lead gen website, avoid trying to rank for everything.

Most niches have enough services/sub-niches to rank for anyway

No need to make a monster website like property management that tries to rank for roofing, carpentry, flooring etc.

Roofing ALONE has:

- Repairs
- Replacements
- Fascia & Soffit
- Commercial
- Thatched
- Garage
- Guttering
- Chimney
- Bespoke
- Solar
- Flat
- Maintenance

Tons to do in this niche alone, let alone trying to turn this into a huge property management website

You also end up diluting your relevance
Better to stick with one decent niche bros

Or, pick a niche which is closely related to other niches, therefore not diluting relevance.

For example, these niches crossover well:

- Carpentry
- Joinery
- Sash windows

All are woodwork, but slightly different...

Easy & Safe Local Links 🐺

In 3 Steps:

#1: Get high ranking websites in the same locale or niche

This can be client websites, your own websites or a mixture.

Send links between these sites.

Doing this grants you links that have:

Trust: Because the sites rank high & get traffic

Relevance: Because they are in the same locale & or niche

Power: Our sites will have SOME power

These three link strength factors were covered in the @mattdiggityseo linking YouTube video released today:

We likely don’t gain a LOT of link "power" compared to large affiliate sites.

... But enough power to add decent value in easy-medium difficulty local niches.

Easy niches especially have weak linking profiles, because competitors are rarely investing into their SEO strategy.
