    Red face Announcing FREE Promo Friday at the Forum

    Introducing FREE Promo Friday

    We're going to test out adding a member perk some of you might like.

    We're pretty strict here about the no self promotion or link drops to your own site rule!
    And you guys are SO GOOD! If you go to other forums you know they are usually spam ridden and full of self promotion and link drops. I've owned, managed and been a member at a ton of forums and have just never seen one as clean as our community is!*

    So to reward you guys I decided to start
    FREE Promo Friday

    Many people want to advertise here to take advantage of our traffic.
    (3500 avg Local Search focused visits a day.)

    A long time ago I had planned to start a low cost advertising option here in the marketplace.
    But with my crippled up hands, just have not been able to pull it off.

    So as the name implies, this thread is a place you can promote ANYTHING on Fridays.
    (Provided you meet the requirements below.)


    FREE PROMOTION:

    .:. Have a Local Search service to offer? Post it!

    .:. Offer a Local Search software solution? Tell us about it.

    .:. Want to turn our members onto your blog OR a great post you wrote?
    Feel free to tell us about it and share the link. (This is the only time link drops are allowed.)

    .:. Webinar or other event coming up? Let our members know!

    .:. Did your company just win an award or hit a milestone? Share the news!

    .:. Hiring? Have an open position? Some great pros are here!

    .:. You get a full page ad. Use it! Add images and/or links. (Links are no follow.)


    REQUIREMENTS:

    - Must be a member in good standing with at least 20 posts.
    (This perk is designed to reward our active members!)

    - Anything deemed spammy or gray/black hat will be removed.

    - One post per person or company.

    Q & A

    WHY? I want to reward loyal members by hopefully helping some of you get new business. Plus want to facilitate networking among members of our community.

    WHEN? I'll start a new promo thread Friday at 7 AM PST.

    If I already posted a promo last Friday, can I do one again this Friday?
    Yep! Tomorrow and every Friday! (The limit is just one post per Friday thread per company.)

    OTHER QUESTIONS? Ask away below?

    LOVE it - or HATE it??? Let me know below! I have very limited use of my hands, so have to carefully choose where to put my energy. As long as you guys LOVE and appreciate the idea, I'll keep it going!


    h/t to Ben Fisher who gave me this idea for our Local Search Dynamics G+ Community. I decided to test it out here 1st, because it's a more controlled environment and there are not 102,000+ members here. :-p

    * The fact that we are so spam-free is largely due to my forum admin, David Baxter who works diligently on the back end keeping spam out AND to our mods who nuke anything that does get through.

    NETWORK - SHARE - Do BUSINESS with EACH OTHER!

    DO NOT START A NEW THREAD - add your post to this one. You'll have a better chance of getting your promo seen, as people check out all the posts to see what everyone has to offer.

    So post away today and every Friday
    I'll start a new promo thread each Friday around 7 AM PST

    re: Announcing FREE Promo Friday at the Forum

    Well....I guess I'll go first

    I thought I'd highlight our White Label SEO product which many on this forum are actually already using This is the overview of it. If you want pricing feel free to PM me.

    White Label Local SEO
    If you wanted us to do work on your clients each month for SEO, we would charge you a one-time set-up fee for each client you send us. This would allow us to do an audit of their current situation. We’d do up a report that would include their current situation, what items need to be fixed, what we are going to be focusing on and what major ranking issues are keeping them from ranking well. This is a report that we could put your logo on and you can send it to them. Most business owners love this because it gives them a clear picture of what we’ll be doing and why.

    Then for the monthly service, we would charge you a monthly fee. This would include us doing all Local SEO aspects for your clients - citation building/fixing, onsite optimization and Google Places optimization (reporting/fixing duplicates) and more. We would send you a monthly report which includes a ranking report and work summary. Both will have your logo on it instead of ours so that you can forward these to your client.

    For the ranking tracker we use, you can see an example here: mikechurchinsurance | Ranking Reports

    This tracker runs daily on every client and takes a screenshot of the SERP. To see the screenshots for every search results page, click any of the numbers and a box will come up with an option to see the screenshot.

    Thanks Advice Local!

    Ben were your ears burning? I didn't even have a chance tell you yet. (I'm kinda slow these days.)
    Sorry about the spelling. I know better so maybe Dragon did it?

    Thanks to you both for sharing!

    re: Announcing FREE Promo Friday at the Forum

    There might not end up being anyone who reads this that's a good fit for my offer, but what the hey, since I'm here.

    If you're a full time photographer with wedding photography as one of your areas of specialty, I'd love to offer a free hour of consulting. I'll look at your website, I'll look at the state of your business both on and off Google, and I'll sit down and give you at least a few easy wins you can do to improve your visibility online. If you've ever felt lost in the sea of information and wish you knew what to work on without wasting your already limited time, or if you feel like you've tried everything and aren't sure why you just can't show as well as some seemingly less deserving competition... this is a really easy, free way to break through the fog and get a plan in place.

    So why am I offering this for free? I'm doing research for a new business I'm developing, and if you are willing to spend an hour with me in exchange, answering basic questions about your business, your experiences since you've started, and what you've done (and haven't done) to market your business, then that makes all this more than worth my while and I'd love to help you in exchange. Just send me a PM if you fit the bill and are interested, and we'll take it from there.
