How Does One Find New Clients for Search Engine Optimization?

Feb 12, 2008 - 9:53 am 7 by

A High Rankings Forum member is starting his own SEO consultancy firm and wants to know how to find clients. Where would you look if you're just beginning?

You can try to go to your Chamber of Commerce and other local business organizations. But be careful:

Don't try to sell them directly. Become a member, then volunteer to give presentations about how having an online presence can benefit small businesses.

People find that method to be extremely successful. What's your take?

Additional tactics include starting up a PPC campaign, spreading the word, starting a blog, participating in forums, and even buying banner ads on sites. Do they help or hurt in your experience?

Forum discussion continues at High Rankings Forum.
