Is SEO Business Profitable?

I want to branch into Video SEO business, but is it more profitable than my current Videography service?

Here's what I found...

  • Neil Patel built an SEO agency and made millions from it.  - 2013
    • Stumbled upon the business after giving his college speech on SEO, where he got his first client.
    • The main ways to get new clients is through (1) speaking at conferences, (2) blogging,  (3) helping out bloggers and (4) referrals. 
    • BLOG posts with more technical content and data get MORE LEADS.
    • SPEAK at non-SEO/marketing conferences that charge at least $1000 per ticket.
    • Talk about tactics people can use. Show example of companies using the tactics. Wrap up with data that shows your methods were successful.
    • GIVE free SEO for bloggers and companies, in exchange for a link back to your site "SEO by...".
    • SEO Clients rarely stick with you for more than 3 years. (My videography clients stuck with me for more than 7 years and still sticking!)
    • Keep in touch with clients monthly (Like all other businesses)
    • Take on clients that you can provide results.
    • Charge client based on what they can earn from the raking result.
    • Work with large brands at lower costs to use as case studies to secure future sales.
    • Take on clients that pay you six figures and not a few thousand.
    • Give detailed FREE proposal on how they can fix their current problem.  If they have the time to do it on their own, fine... otherwise hire you.
    • "The quickest way to increase revenue is to become the outsourced arm of bigger agencies."
    • Work with ad agencies. Let them white label your service. Ask for six-figure contracts.
    • Never stop giving and give without expecting anything in return. 
Do you own an SEO business? If yes, please share your experience.

The original "idea" journal posted on Aril 28, 2015. I have a request to shoot a corporate internal talk and stream it to a live audience in seven different countries.

First 3 things that came to mind is...

1. Video conferencing system.
2. Google+ Hangouts On Air with YouTube Live.
3. Other Streaming services like Ustream.

Video conferencing system is out as that would require a whole set of dedicated equipment.

All I have at this point is.


MacBook Pro Built-in Internal Microphone Location

There's two of them and both are situated inside the left speaker vent.

The dual built-in microphones are designed tor educe background noise from behind the notebook. The also create an adaptive audio beam that intelligently adjusts to detect your voice — instead of the noise around you.
