SEO services were probably the most lucrative means of earning several years ago. This was in a period when Search Engine ranking was governed by relatively lax policies.
Many people made a ton of money using black hat SEO techniques. It was possible to push the rank of a website using strategies such as keyword stuffing on dummy websites.
Today the ranking algorithms are very different and it is not quite as easy to improve page ranks – at least not that fast. For this reason marketing SEO services is quite challenging – here are some tips for fellow SEO types.
SEO service provider’s today blog just to market their SEO services. Many of these websites share, discuss and argue about strategy just to become visible.
Personally, I believe this is an excellent method to market SEO services – it’s affordable and shows you are constantly improving. Quality blogs draw plenty of attention and get shared, tweeted about and widely circulated.
Freelancing is picking up and the market is far from saturated.
On freelance platforms such as Upwork, Fiverr, iWriter, you will find you can sell written content at very competitive prices. Writing high quality content on these platforms is one sure way of marketing your SEO services especially content creation skills.
In addition to the money you can make writing and selling articles, you get to create a profile that you can use to showcase your services and samples.
Social media serves a variety of purposes today one of which is bringing professionals together.
Like Facebook and other casual social media websites, LinkedIn allows registered users to form groups and post articles discussing collective issues. Joining and contributing to these groups is one of the best ways you can market your SEO services.
The best part is LinkedIn moderates the interaction in such a fashion that you can be sure you will be sharing with peers only. The quality of interaction alone is sure way to find clients if your work is outstanding.
Some web sites use frequent competitions to help freelancers stand out.
Registering on platforms such as freelancer.com will put you dead on the track for weekly, monthly and seasonal competitions. In some cases you will need to form groups and in other you get to go it alone. Either way you get to market your SEO services in a simple way.
Competitions are especially good given that they often come with financial rewards and badges, all of which say something about the person behind the picture.
These are just some of the options you have to market your SEO services. You can also use the traditional social media channels such as Facebook and Twitter; though you will need to know how to tweak the privacy and security to keep your account from prying hands. You could even borrow ideas about competitions and run campaigns of your own.
