This is a guest post by Alfred Smith.

After the recent unfortunate recession, when people are not being able to get a desirable job, they are looking for a way to earn money. In the recent era of web technology, there are several ways to earn cash and one being the most important is SEO. Search engine optimization or SEO is a process that improves the visibility of your website or a webpage in search engines, either natural or unpaid search results. In general, the earlier and more frequently that appears in the search results list, the more visitors it will receive from the search engine’s users. However, before setting up an SEO business, you must have a few important things listed below.


It is needless to say that an important thing you must have for setting up a successful SEO business is knowledge. Gather as much knowledge as possible on SEO by reading out books, visiting websites, and shopping around well. If possible, work in an SEO firm for at least a year or two in order to gain knowledge as well as experience in SEO. Also consider consulting an SEO specialist who can provide you with practical information on SEO.


People who want to start an SEO business and are serious about it should be ambitious to make it large. You should always aim beyond making a living or meeting the household expenses. This will draw you to success in this business.

Logo or logotype:

Make sure the logo you design for your SEO business is similar to your business type. Ensure that the logo you design indicates your site in order to optimize it well. Doing so will help you going a long way towards credibility. If you are good at designing then design it on your own or assign the work to a local designer in your area. But make sure the designer does it keeping all your requirements in mind.

Basic accounting skills:

Like all other businesses, this type of business also requires you having bookkeeping skills i.e. how to balance a checkbook. If you do not have the skills, either learn it or hire the services of an accountant who can assist you in handling the accounts.

Seek advice from a mentor:

To survive in this competitive market, it is important to seek help and advice from someone who is associated with SEO business for a long time. Contact such experienced personalities and see if they are willing to meet you once or twice a month.

Networking skills:

The most important factor to run the SEO business successfully is to have networking skills. No matter you are setting up a new business and being associated with it for past many years, you need to build up a network i.e. you need to meet a lot of people. The best place to do so is at networking events. It takes practice, or knowing someone who can introduce around helps too.

Thus, it is to be concluded by saying that having some of the skills mentioned above is extremely important to succeed in SEO business.
