Another method of making some easy money in the offline local business world, is to offer blog creation services to local businesses. A blog is super simple (and FREE) to create. You do not have to have any technical knowledge whatsoever. I recommend using http://www.Blogger.com because they are owned by Google, so you know that it will rank nicely on Google's search engine!
You can actually log in using your existing Google account if you have a Gmail account or any Google account. It's the same username and password as your Gmail account. Or, you can create an account for free.
Make sure you create the domain name of the blog to be the name of your client's businesses. It will come out looking like this "YourClientsBusiness.Blogspot.com" in case you don't know already.
The main purpose of the blog is going to be an additional source of traffic for your client's business. It will also link back to their main website, giving them a valuable back link which is helpful for SEO (search engine optimization).A blog is basically a website, but
with more bells and whistles. They Targeted traffic = leads = customers. That is why having a blog is important for your client. Also, nowadays people love blogs and they love reading other peoples'/businesses' blogs.
Most major companies and multimillion dollar businesses have blogs...so why shouldn't your client? <--- This can serve as a great selling point when pitching this to businesses.
As far as how much to charge an offline business for creating a blog (or multiple blogs) for them -- It's really up to you!
Some people enjoy the concept of charging low prices for this service and getting more clients because of it. For example, if you charge only $100 bucks for this, you might be able to do 5 or 6 in a week easy. That's $500-600 a week ($2,000+ per month) which is a great living for many people.
Others would rather charge more (like $499+) for a custom blog and they would rather have less clients. Instead of needing to get 5clients to make $500, they only need to get ONE!
I like both of those concepts and both have worked for me before, so again, it's really up to you.
