Learn how to use SEO software and sell a service to website owners
Whenever you see someone running a top of the line SEO company they likely started off using software for their own websites as well as their customers. This means you can learn how to use popular SEO software, even if it's not as effective as it use to be a couple years ago, and you can sell a service to people who need a little boost in the SERPs. Over time you could build up your clientele list, offer them bigger and better packages, and you could potentially make 100k a year in profit
I started off using SEO software for clients over 10 years ago, they would get top rankings, and now I still have a few of those people still paying me $750+ for my higher quality services that don't involve any sort of software. You need to understand that you'll have to start somewhere, and you need to build massive amounts of backlinks for clients if you want to bring them on board, and doing that all by hand is pretty much impossible.
Below I'll talk about some things you should expect to be doing when you're learning how to use SEO software for yourself as well as your clients and what to do in order to make money from them
Most SEO software websites charge a monthly fee
You need to understand that most of the top SEO software out there will have a monthly fee to use it. Some are just $15 a month while others are $250, but each has its own purpose and usually, you pay for what you get in return. There are pieces of software like SEnuke that cost $247 a month and you can use their best software while there is something like Xrumer that costs just $15 a month but you have to pay $750 up front to access the software.
Know what software you want to use before you make a plan for the future, because you may not be able to afford everything you want. I would suggest you start slow and find a piece of software for under $75 a month and start selling services for $15 a pop. You should easily be able to profit if you set up your own website, run some AdWords campaigns, and just run a good website service for anyone that is purchasing. People will usually purchase a cheap package to see what you can do and they will purchase bigger packages when they trust you
Know exactly how to set up, run, and send reports before you sell
If you set up a website now, learn the software as you're selling, and don't really know what you're doing for your first few orders... You'll just harm your website and profits later on because you're going to get negative reviews online, and that's something that will kill your profits.
As for reports, you should work with some sort of free file upload that doesn't require users to login in order to download a file. I like using something like this that is password protected, so only the person I give the URL and password can access the file and download it. If you can do that, you will be profitable in a short amount of time, and you will avoid any sort of spam filters within major email services
Update your links list as often as possible
There is no push button SEO software out there, you actually have to manage it and build your own link lists, or you can actually buy other peoples lists. It doesn't matter what software you're running, you'll need to scrape and filter your lists if you want to have the absolute best work possible for your customers.
Not everyone purchasing SEO services is an idiot, they will know what to look for when running your links through DA checkers and finding the links. If you're giving them DA 1 websites with a not hyperlinks to their websites, you're going to have a pissed off customer lol Scrape, filter, and test every list you have so you know you're giving away the best possible links the software can build.
Sell a package, not a service where you're running software
When I started off I quickly found out that selling a service will make you less than selling a package. People will think they're getting a service, expect much more than what you're selling, and they will not be happy with the service provided. With SEO packages you will be selling a specific amount of links and the customer will understand exactly what they're getting.
Not only will you get fewer clients angry about their order, they will order more from you because a service is seen to work all month while a package can be done in a day or two, and that means they will need more work done within the month
99% of the SEO specialists out there, myself included, started using SEO software to build our own rankings as well as to help clients. Back in the day this would work really well for customers, and just using software doesn't work as well as in the past, but it still helps customers increase rankings if you know what you're doing Study everything, test out your packages on burn sites, get statistics and images to help back your claims of increased rankings, and always have the best links possible to run through the software to have the best success rate and please the clients
