It’s simple, create a video tutorial of you doing your thing. Teach people in a thoughtful and engaging way.
Using videos to build your audience is a great idea, while there are other types of landscaping vlogs out there you can make one that is unique for sure, there is enough room for you in this space.
After you have recorded your video, use that content and break it down into a publishable article. The great thing is you have pictures you can capture from the video, it’s a win-win for double content.
People like honesty and expect it, if they feel everything is not on the up and up they are going to bounce.
Always keep in the back of your mind that you should be authentic, original, and opinionated. Provide value above all else and always ask for your readers to like and subscribe.
Make video reviews as authentic as you can, it helps if you have actually used the product.
When we are trying to monetize content a few of the fastest and simplest ways to get started are:
- Affiliate Marketing
- Display Advertising
Eventually, you may be able to make it to brand deals, but let’s not put the cart before the mower and focus on actionable things we can take advantage of right now.
Being patient is going to open up doors as we stay consistent.
If you want an online business in landscaping that is highly profitable with low overhead lead generation may be the best business model for you.
Lead generation, more specifically local lead generation will require you to rank well for local search terms, capture a quote request and then turn around and sell it to companies that are willing to pay for incoming leads.
Take the Progressive approach, giving the customer multiple options or at least multiple contact choices to choose from.
Remember: Lead generation requires patience or money. Patience is the long game and money can all you to go all-in with local ad spend to generate leads to your site that you can then in return sell to others.
Monetize your lead generation further by trying the following:
- Selling top spot promotion
- Cost per call (CPC)
- Cost per lead (CPL)
- Cost per click (CPC)
- Cost per view (CPM)
The greatest part about landscaping lead generation is that it’s extremely scaleable once you get the formula downright. Focus on one market get it running smoothly then move on to the next market. Scaling is as easy as repeating the same steps over and over again while increasing your income every step of the way.
