How I Used SEO, Local Lead Generation and WordPress To Make >$110,000

I have been working a side hustle for the last 2 years using some local SEO techniques to sell leads to a major corporate office developer.

After 2 years of selling them 2-30 leads/month on the "boston office space" type traffic they brought me in 2 weeks ago and asked if I would be interested in developing a similar site for them or revamping their website.

I thought about it for 5 minutes as I excused myself to goto the bathroom.

Really it was a stall tactic to think about how much I should charge them. But then I said why does a $Billion valued developer in the Boston MA area ask a guy to "make us a website too"? I was looking for the angle.

Then I thought "how many leads have I given them in the last 24 months?" and "how many total leads have they received on there own with me?"

The first I could answer myself. I looked in my gmail account and brought up the last monthly report invoice I've sent them and figured it was about 400 leads in the 24 months we've worked together. If an office space went for $15 per square foot/year and the average space was 2200 sqft. Then that's $33,000 per year they're making 1 of my $30-$75 lead. If I sent them about 400 leads and if they closed even 10% of them then that's $1.3 million in revenue I bought in to them in 24 months.

So I walked back into the meeting (checking my pants zipper to be sure it was closed) and thought of a number to develop the same thing I had made. I was about to tell them $50,000 to make the same site and I would basically do the same thing I did with my own site.

Right before I got to that part I mentioned to them in small talk about what I did and the SEO stuff and one of the executive type guys asks me about the means I've been using to generate leads. I told them I had some websites that I sold leads to to a few clients in the "boston office space" industry.

The guys face dropped and he said "You're selling to other companies too?"

I told him yes because the contract we had in place said each lead can not be resold and they were not exclusive. Long story short they wanted exclusivity to all the leads and for me to cut out the other clients. I told them I would have to work some numbers and get back to them.

Trying to read their faces in the room to see if they were pissed or greedy for all my leads, I know how lazy I am at times and another long term contract with this client seemed boring to me. I threw out the idea of just selling them the site I had and do minimal maintenance on it for them.

They asked me to step outside and I was sweating myself thinking I just fucked up. After about 10 minutes they brought me back in and talked and BS'ed for about 20 minutes and all I can think about is what they were thinking. I checked my phone 3 or 4 times as I got texts and it seemed to make some of them nervous. One guy sat up and said "Would you be willing to sell your site to us for $50k and help us maintain it?"

A got a lump in my throat and thought "SHIT what do I do"

Trying to seem cool I said I would have to think about it. I knew that I billed them a little under $30k for those 24 month and both years around november - january it was all but dried up.

Some more talk and they said they're weren't going to let me leave without making a deal so what would it take. I said "If you want to part with $100k I can deliver the site this week" They seemed to jump at that and we all shook hands and I kicked myself quietly in the ass for not saying at least double that. The way I look at it now a few days later is that I don't have to put in a few hours/day to maintain, report, invoice and make sure the assistant I email leads to gets everything. AND I got about 3 years revenue coming in now without having to do any more of that work.

Oh and I also wanted to say that I DID NOT post that photo to show off. I just wanted to share what I could and let you guys know what's possible with the right website in the right industry.

I've got websites in industries that you would laugh at. Stupid ideas of mine that went no where. Most I get lucky on but I'd like to think I have a better business sense within the last few years where I can figure out if an idea of mine would be profitable.

Just a little motivation for you guys.

Throw it into the bank and... On to the next project!!

Edit - I'm wondering if people would be interested in me putting all my strategies and processes on building a passive income machine into some ebook. Would you read an ebook?

* Edit #2 I might release a chapter at a time instead of the whole thing all at once. Otherwise it could be weeks before it's totally complete. Subscribe below to get notified of updates.

Watch How I Promote My Ebook

Any guesses as to how many visitors I received from this?

What if I told you I've done dozens of these interviews with radio talk shows, newspapers, magazines and TV. It's all about the right pitch at the right time to newsdesks around the country. They're looking for relevant and topical content and if you have a story that fits their agenda, you can promote your stuff like I did.

BTW, I generated a total of 2.6 million visitors over a 2 week stretch promoting the site and selling that ebook about how to protect your online privacy. Eventually selling the site and profiting big from it.
