    Red face Consultant's Corner - Business Issues

    By popular request we just added a new section to the forum.

    Welcome to the Consultant's Corner!

    This new forum is dedicated to providing resources to help manage the "Business Side" of local search consulting. And as importantly, is a place for the community to share business-building and organizational ideas OR ask questions about business-related issues.

    Great topics for this forum would include anything related to:
    prospecting, pricing, packaging, billing, time management, productivity tools
    or anything about managing and GROWING a more successful business!

    I have some helpful resources/posts in the works, but here are the 3 so far I just added today.

    How to Write Universe-conquering Proposals by Portent
    Just Say No to Bad Local SEO Clients - Let them Walk!
    Biz-Building Tips for Local SEOs + How to Find a GOOD Local SEO for SMBs


    STAY TUNED FOR AN EPIC LEAD GEN & PROSPECTING POST
    WITH TIPS I CAN'T BELIEVE I'M GOING TO SHARE PUBLICLY ABOUT
    WAYS TO GET NEW CLIENTS, I BET MOST OF YOU DON'T KNOW ABOUT

    FEEL FREE TO START A NEW THREAD ABOUT: New business-building articles you read, productivity tools you like or to ask questions about business issues you may be struggling with.

    We're here to help and learn from one another!

    re: Consultant's Corner - Business Issues

    Thanks guys, it's another labor of love - something I've wanted to do for a long time.

    Have lots I want to share and even more important is the fact that you guys are a wealth of knowledge and can all help each other as well.

    (Edited to add: Sorry, when I 1st replied I only saw Don's post, then I came back 3 hours later and there are Travis and Colan's replies I never saw. Guess we all kinda posted at the same time.)

    re: Consultant's Corner - Business Issues

    So excited to see this. I am part of a few other forums and the business questions seem to always go unanswered. I REALLY hope this community is up for actually helping, especially those of us trying to transition into their own business and away from the agency realm.

    Hey Mike,

    Yes I think you'll see this forum be pretty active. I'm pretty passionate about helping folks anyway, but if you are trying to get out of a J. O. B. to do your own thing, then I'm even more committed to helping when I can. (Def pro self employment). Didn't realize that was your situation Mike. I'm sure lots of the guys here have been in your shoes and they should have good advice to share.

    re: Consultant's Corner - Business Issues

    Hey Linda. Sorry I've been MIA

    Have been transitioning from the "Yeah, we'll do that" category to the "Here are a few great contacts that may be a better fit for what you're looking for" category

    Trying to shift around some time commitments to be more active here and on a choice few other Elite Local SEO Forums.

    Looking forward to sharing some great strategies and learning from fellow Local gurus as well. Thanks for the passion, commitment and vision it took to make this happen!!
