First of all, thank you so much for being interested in myself, and the services I provide.  I’ve put in nearly 20 years learning, tweaking and refining my knowledge of SEO and digital marketing.

Chances are you asked me to a lunch meeting or other ‘get together’ where we could talk about your website, your online strategy, or your vision.

And chances are you may think I’m an asshole after this next paragraph, but that’s ok.

I don’t give information for free.  In fact, I’m a bit stingy with it. As I said above, I’ve worked for years to gain a LOT more knowledge than your current web guy, and that’s probably what brought you to me in the first place.

Do I love a free lunch? Heck yeah, who doesn’t?

But would you be able to share your big trade secrets for a $7 panini?  No really, would you?

So listen, I’m not really an asshole.  But I pay my bills just like you do.  I have teenagers that never stop eating.  I have a wife that enjoys shopping.  I have a mortgage that requires monthly maintenance (in the form of a check).  So if you want to pick my brain, I’m more than happy to share my information with you in exchange for money.
