How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

When you start selling SEO services online you quickly figure out it's a lot of work, but you may not have all the time in the world to do this, so you may want to start reselling services at a markup and keeping the profits.  Don't worry, this is perfectly legal, and there are plenty of people doing this already and making a full-time income from it.

I've sold thousands of packages that I've done none of the work for, I guess you could say I'm a power seller of other peoples services!  I don't consider myself an affiliate when I resell other peoples services, because I'm keeping all of the information and the service provider doesn't know the website isn't mine.  I'm writing this discussion because I was talking to someone earlier today and they were telling me how difficult it is to make money online.  I told them I already made $225 today and I don't have to do any of the work besides forwarding the website information to be used within the service and I keep all the profits.  They were pretty astonished at what I did, and they quickly asked how they could do it, but it's not something you can set up in a day and understand in detail right away.  Now, if you have some experience with websites and how to do SEO, you can get up and be running in a day or two and start making money online easily How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services


Search for cheap services that offer a lot
There are plenty of these kinds of services here, you just need to do a basic search for what you want to sell on your website and find the cheapest ones that have a lot involved in them.  If you're selling backlinking services, find something that offers a decent link diversity and costs between $3 and $30.  The service itself doesn't have to be amazing, just find something that looks good on paper and will be seen as a service every website owner needs to have.

I've noticed that a lot of new website owners will try to find an affordable service that offers then the most backlinks possible, so even if you sell a 200,000+ backlink package for $300 you will get a decent amount of sales.  You may only pay $3 to $30 for the service, keep the profits, and your customers will still be happy they paid a fraction of a penny for each backlink How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

Filter out level 1 and level 2 sellers
One of the main things I do when searching for something to resell is filtering out anyone that is new or just above new in terms of level.  I will filter out anyone with a level 1 or level 2 profile, leaving me with anyone that is level 3 or higher.

You can definitely find some great services with a level 1 or level 2 profile, but I like to play it safe and only work with people who have achieved level 3 or higher.

Set up a quick website to sell SEO services
Your website doesn't have to be the most advanced, it just needs to have a decent design as well as a few pages within it.  You'll need a decent homepage, a privacy policy page, a TOS page, an about us page, a contact us page, and you'll definitely need a refund policy for later on.

Take some time setting up your website and make it look as good as you can, without bringing in a programmer just yet to make everything extravagant.  You can always bring in a designer or programmer to tweak your website later on when you're making more money, but it's not necessary in the beginning, so focus more on building your own pages for now and boosting your traffic.

Set up an Adwords, Facebook, and Bing Ads campaign
After you have everything above set up, you will now need to bring in some amazing traffic that will convert into sales.  Setting up an Adwords campaign is likely going to be the best for your sales, so start there and optimize it as much as possible so you generate more sales.

After your Adwords account is bringing in a decent amount of sales each day, focus on the other platforms and see how well you can do over there How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

Be the middleman with every order
If you think about it, you're just the middleman for this entire process, but the customer thinks you're doing everything for them How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services  You're capturing the sale, sending the information along with some cash to the freelancer here, and keeping the profits for yourself.  If you sell something for $300 and it only costs you $30, that's a $70 profit for each order that is made How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

You will need to talk with the customer whenever they have a question, send reports whenever you get them from the freelancers, and make sure you get your orders done on time so you don't get any disputes or chargebacks from angry customers.  If you can do this, you can easily make money reselling SEO service How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services


In conclusion
If you know how to set up a website, set up an Adwords campaign as well as use other advertising platforms, and send all the reports that come in then you can definitely make money reselling SEO services.  You're essentially just handling a lot of information between the customer and the freelancer, keeping the profits, and building your sales upward as much as you can How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

Amazing! I need help here. How can you assist a newcomer like me realize this? I do not even know how to set up a website. I need to make money online too

It's not too difficult to start a website today, you just need to have your own basic hosting for $35 or $35 a month and a premium theme from ThemeForest so you look amazing from day 1 How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

After you get that setup, you will now need to find your products here, and you can do the sorting and filtering I mentioned above.

I like to use people who have hit level 3+ so I know they're dedicated to their services and I don't have to risk my money, or my new websites reputation, on a new seller who might not deliver. After you found 8 to10 services you'd like to sell that are between $3 and $35, you add them to your own website as if you are offering them. You need to write up your own product descriptions, titles, mark up the price a good amount, and add your own images as the product image so you look unique.

After you get that setup, you need to figure out how you're going to accept payments, I'm currently using 2checkout so I can catch every payment possible. I was using PayPal but they are limited accross the world, which is why I switched it up and started using 2co, but you can still make some sales through PayPal if you can't get accepted into 2co. I tried using Stripe but they don't accept SEO or marketing type websites to their processor, so I deleted my account and registered at 2co lol How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

After I had all of that set up I went over to wufoo and set up a $39 a month account and only have 1 form. I have this form as a sort of "Post Purchase" form so people can submit their exact information for the service they purchased. They give me their name, email, domain, keywords, etc. essentially anything I need to get the job done and then send them a report.


Cost Breakdown:

  • Domain - $35 (roughly)
  • Hosting - $35+ per month (I pay $44 because I now get over 800 people a day to my website)
  • Theme - $350 to $350 on ThemeForest
  • Logo - $35+ from Sajeewa here on SEOLads.

Total: $105 to $320 to startup

You can, of course, pay less and get the same results. You could already have a domain that is right for this, you might find a hosting provider that is cheaper than $35, you might have a theme already or find something cheaper that works for you, and you might not need a logo if you opt for a basic text logo you can make yourself How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services


I hope that helps How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

It is quite easy like that. Let me bookmark this page so that I come to it later and if possible consult with you

Sounds good How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

Making money like this isn't too difficult, just be sure you save up your money in case you get a chargeback (it will inevitably happen) so you have funds in your account to cover the price of the service plus the fees associated with a chargeback which are usually $25 to $85.

So if you get 10 sales for $85 a piece, and you outsource the work for $3, you'll have $135 in profit. If just one of those orders files a chargeback, let's say it's $85, you're not down to $85 after the money is taken out but now you still lose money from outsourcing the work. So with 9 successful sales and 1 chargeback, you could be at $84 in profit when you should have been at $135.

This is why I don't take money out of my accounts unless I know I have enough in there to cover 10 or even 20 chargebacks. I'm essentially protecting myself as well as saving money that I might have spent somewhere else lol.

Try to bootstrap as much as you can, put all of your profits back into your website promotions, and you will be happy you did. Think about it, if you were to start at just $85 a day in AdWords and make $45 profit from that $85 investment, you can now push it up to $30 a day and make $90 in profit. If you keep doing this you will eventually get up to $850 a day and $450 in profit, which is roughly $850,000 a year How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services You don't even have to stop there, you could get bigger and bigger over time, just be sure you save your money and put it back into your business when you do plan on spending it.

A good way to think of your money is to see it as your businesses and not your own. Pay yourself what you need in order to live, invest at least 50% of what's left, and save the rest for a rainy day. If you can do this you'll be successful How to make a lot of money reselling SEO services

Hello Stbrians. If you are interested in having your website and have no knowledge to develop it your self, then SEOLads is right place for you. For affordable price you can find someone to setup website for you in matter of hours. I would recommend to search for Wordpress developers and discuss about building web store for you, probably with WooCommerce plugin. Then after you have your website up and running, you can have look on YouTube tons of video tutorials how to use WordPress and WooCommerce. In the past i have developed many websites like this for my customers and most of them are still working great and making money. The thing is, as Tommy say, you need to invest some money in developing website, doing nice SEO for it and do some advertising or social media marketing in order to start getting noticed by customers and earn money, but any smart investment will pay off it self in future. Good luck.

That is a good idea. I hope it won't be very expensive. If it is maybe I will postpone to a future date. Am experiencing a tough financial crisis at this time.

If you experiencing a tough financial crisis at this time and can't make such investment as it's described here, you may start affiliate marketing on social networks and try your luck to make some extra income. Soclerks offers great affiliate program too

I will have to join that one. Maybe the affiliate program will help me make some money.

I have read a lot of discussions about Wordpress and I have to agree that you wouldn’t be needing the web designers since the Wordpress is already a website in itself. All you need is to tweak the design for your specific requirements and there are also the themes that you can choose. But I have no experience with installing a Wordpress so I cannot say if it is really easy for a non-techie to handle.

I think tommy laid out the steps pretty much clear. I'd only add one more thing here that you need to know your niche. Like what work to do. Or what work to buy from others to serve which client. Knowing client is how you are going to establish your business. That's how many people are making money in this context.

I’m just at the point of understanding SEO for my own business needs, but I love that there’s so much room to grow with reselling SEO services too. All the more reason to be able to do it well!

I believe that resell is just about possible in any kind of business whether it's online business or offline business. So, on getting to know that it's still possible to resell SEO services proves the point already. So, if there is room to resell your SEO business services, it's profitable to take it on.

I feel you too. I am interested in developing a platform for my content but knowing that the scope of the business and potential is great. Lots of options are always beneficial.

I never knew that it was possible to resell SEO services. Taking into account the fact that there are many webmasters who are willing to pay for such services in order to get high rankings in the SERPs, I believe that should anyone actually try this then there is a high likelihood that they can make decent money from this business.

I have a question though.

Once you start your business is it possible to make a part of it (say responding to customer queries) automated so you can spend most of your time marketing the business itself and draw in more customers?



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

anwebservices

Surely you can make decent money from this business, but you need to build trust from your customers and invest in advertising or social media marketing in order to get buyers.

Not sure of what kind of automated customer queries you think here. So if you want everything absolutely automated, then i guess best option will be to become affiliate and let SEO suppliers deal with everything, even with customer queries, but more money could be made as reseller, because you could set your own price, where you will need to deal with your customers and their quieries

People do look down on being the middle man in sales but they are the ones that actually makes lots of money without much stress because in every sales, they are actually making incredible money. Also focusing on cheap services tend to be less expensive but more profitable.

That's just the truth as I have come to realize that they are the people that are going to fix a price that will make them a whole lot of profits while the seller just get a token from it which is not really great to me. If I have sales to make, I always try as much as I can to relate with those not the middle men.

The thing is you don't have to tell the people that you are middle man. And you have to just work as remote in their eyes. That way they can understand and less likely to judge you. You have to focus on money part. If you can make a lot of money as a middle man. Why let that money go away?

Kakashi2020

Yep that could work but it's not easy. You need a lot of time coordinating things and if you're not an expert you'll end up losing money or getting your reputation tarnished. But if you're an expert and comfortable in all the facets of SEO then it could be very profitable.

I think bartering is a good idea if you know another person well. And that way you can easily help each other out. And you don't have to spend your money. And it can benefit both the parties. I think on that note it'd be definitely beneficial for many out there. I guess many people out there would be willing to make use of the SEO services that can be useful on many levels.

I really like how you explained how to become the middle man. This one is very interesting for some people who's not really in SEO, but interested and wants to earn something and learned. I think this a good way to start and learn.

treecko142

Yeah, you are essentially acting as an assistant to others not very familiar with SEO services and you really can make a living off it with proper research and work ethic. You just have to look for cheap offers and build up a reputation until you can increase your charging rate.

The thing that we do on the internet has grown to the extent that understanding basic things such as setting up the website is all that matters. I always look at that as a way that we can be able to get things working pretty well. The site will make people that want to buy such services to be able to locate you easily.

Reselling services is actually a strategy that can not only be applied to SEO, but pretty much any sort of freelance service available on the internet. I’ve seen people make tons of money reselling everything from logos and graphic designs to articles and even videos. It’s a bit manipulative, but it works.

It’s made especially easy by the existence of sites like Fiverr. The fact is that while many clients demand high quality content, a lot of them wouldn’t know the difference if you gave them something of moderate quality. You can go on Fiverr and get some average work done for $10 and resell it to a client for several times the cost of your investment. I don’t do it myself, cause like I said it feels a bit shady to me, but it’s technically a legitimate business tactic. It's kind of like outsourcing your work.

I like this idea. Though I don't think of it as shady. It's already being done in the real world. Chinese products are being repackaged and sold as branded products in my country. Nobody seems to care. As long as they get what they paid for. In the end, it's all fair play when everyone gets what they want am I right?



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

DenisP

Well yeah, I certainly wouldn’t say that you’re wrong. I realize that it’s actually a fairly common business tactic, and—if I’m not mistaken—is referred to as flipping. Obviously, it’s called flipping because you acquire a product at a low price and flip it for a higher cost, therefore making a profit.

However, what I personally find a tad bit shady is selling someone a product that you’re passing off as your own. The customer probably expects that the product they’re receiving was created by you, and that they’re working with you directly. Still, it wouldn’t be in your best interest to tell them that you’re working through a third-party, as that may turn them off.

That being said, I suppose that if everyone is content with the transaction in the end, who really cares?

Thanks for the great tips on becoming a SEOLads affiliate. I have often thought about setting an affiliate store for SEOLads, however, I do not know how to do it. Are there any scripts, themes that help me to set up SEOLads affiliate store?

jaymish2

Thanks for the great tips. People that know how to offer SEO services actually make good money. You are right you could be a go between and collect a commission without doing any of the work. However I think to supervise anything you need to know something about it, you need to know where to correct the person if they go wrong. One way of doing this is learning all you can about SEO first. Great idea!

I agree that being a middleman or a reseller will earn you money with little investment. That’s what I see in drop shipping. They find good items and sell it at a profit. However, it is easier said than done because finding the supply and later on finding the demand is not that easy to come. Besides, there is the complicated situation when the buyer learns that the supplier is not really you. Anyway, that reselling SEO services is still a good idea for those who are well versed in selling.

I agree on the middle man strategy. But I I find disturbing is giving 5 dollars to the seo service provider then getting 45 dollars as a middle man. That is way too inhumane.



Enter a reason for deleting this comment

anchoreztin

I also believe that you can make a lot of money from reselling SEO services but I really find it offensive that you will pay level 1 seo provider with 5 dollars while you get 45 dollars as profit. That is beyond humane. Then you say find some one who is willing to give more services at a very low cost. You might as well give the seo provider fair wage for the efforts they are doing. This world can be a lot better if we have more compassion to others. It will not always be about the money and material things in life. You can say that you are rich and successful but remember those who help you have that money who gave their time, blood and sweat.

It made me think about it thats actually one of the secrets for us to survive and be successful. Let's say you earn the right amount as your goal for the day, thats the payment you got because of your effort. There are times you earned more to your goal, instead you spent it, why not keep it, and "save it for the rest of the a rainy day". Love that part.

IT was also unknown to me to resell about the services. Is it legal? As per SEOLads affiliate rules I am able to publish my affiliate URL worldwide and previously I have been trying for long term about RSS feed with blogspot and word press. From there I am getting traffic but I am not getting the huge sales. For the last 3 years try I got only $1410 affiliate sales and I got profit $141+. I thought this is the only rules.

By the writing of Tommy- Am I able to copy and paste the services from here and am I able to re sell the services by setting up an e commerce or Woo commerce based website at outside by PP API platform. Will it be legal? I think after getting clear idea I should need to get permission from SEOLads administration section.

The matter is not 100% clear to me. I will be happy if Tommy reply me on here with more details for me.
How do I find the resell link for every services of SEOLads.

Wish you all the best.

Thanks
Centurion
