About BretRoyster
Joined October 2018
Hey I'm Bret!

I've recently moved to Northwest Arkansas and more recently started my own software contracting freelance business - but I've been interested in online marketing and building a more 'leveraged' online business for a number of years now.

I've attempted a lot of paid marketing in the past attempting to sell memberships to an online network marketing company I was involved in (and no longer involved with...) and more recently attempting to sell affiliate products on native marketing platforms without a lot of success due to time constants from my last job.

I've always 'known' about SEO/free marketing strategies like blogging, etc - but I've never been patient enough to really give it a strong go. I'm excited to make that transition now! This looks like a great platform to move me in that direction.

I'm super excited about completely breaking away from the 9-5 office life (I'm only half way there right now)!

I love software, marketing, and business. And I'm probably 'good' at those things in that exact order currently ;-)

Great to have you here Bret. With your skill set and motivation, once you go through all the training you could even open up a local seo consultation business. There's webinars on it in the Live Events section (left menu) if you want to check it out.

Anyways, I want to make sure you get off to the right start... Check out this post by the owner Kyle before you choose a domain name or niche idea. Hope all is well and let me know if you have any questions about Wealthy Affiliate or how to get started.

Cheers,
Todd

That's actually a great idea!

One of my challenges starting to freelance on Upwork was just this feeling of "this business will never grow beyond me if its tied to my hourly work".

So I know I was interested in doing something more 'agency-like' where I could leverage my time better. SEO would be a great and valuable service I could build out!

Yeah, it's a skill set that most local businesses don't have and so it's a nice business model. You essentially need to be able to go into a site and know what to do to get that site to rank locally.

It's not that hard after you go through the training. Once you get the skill down, then you just need clients. The cool thing with this business model is that you set them up on a maintenance fee for 500/mo and then keep their websites in top position.

You just have to have the skills to get the clients as well which takes a bit of hustle.

Just build a niche website and take the classes and after you go through the training, assuming you complete each task, and you'll get it all down.

There's lots of options, but the key is to take action, take the classes and get to it.
