    Exclamation Why Great LOCAL SEO Is Expensive - Infographic

    As I often do, I'm taking good SEO info and putting a Local SEO spin on it. Below is a great infographic which tells the tale, BUT I want to focus on a comment that's made in the intro.

    "...that has led much of the market to focus on strong sites & made SEO consulting a money losing game for those serving smaller businesses."

    Here's an important double edged sword. Getting a GOOD ROI, for consultants and SMBs alike, is tough!
    If the consultant charges too much, then the ROI is not there for the SMB in Podunk Iowa, because
    there are just not that many clicks - no matter how great a job you do! But on the other hand for you,
    the consultant - local search is so labor-intensive, you CAN NOT AFFORD to do a GREAT JOB, unless you
    charge on the high end!

    I know lots of Local SEO consultants that are struggling to make a profit. My comment above and the infographic below, is part of the reason. See posts in our Consultant's Corner for help and insights about growing your Local SEO consulting business.

    A Look at How Costs Have Risen

    Over the years Google has made SEO far more complex, which in turn has made it much harder to predictably invest in SEO. As the layers of friction & uncertainty have increased, that has led much of the market to focus on strong sites & made SEO consulting a money losing game for those serving smaller businesses.

    Any SEO infographic that weaves in Bob Ross automatically wins a double thumbs-up from me.

    This is one of those info+text-graphics that deserved far more content.

    Re: Why Great LOCAL SEO Is Expensive - Infographic

    First of all, who is Bob Ross? I suppose I'll have to do a Google search after this reply.

    The million dollar question then is...how do local SEO consultants (or SEO consultants in general) make money???

    LOL I wondered too but no time to ask. I think he's an artist or something.

    They don't! Kidding of course. OK, I'll shut up now. No more wise cracks.

    Re: Why Great LOCAL SEO Is Expensive - Infographic

    Yes, you need to search for him. If you can find one of his shows, I highly recommend watching. He's a landscape painter and an icon. His voice, mannerisms and overall demeanor is so calming. If you've had a bad day, right after taking a shot of your favorite liquor, watch his show. The guy just has a knack for making everything seem so peaceful. I know I'm off topic with all this, but Travis' "who's Bob Ross" comment just makes me feel old.
