EBay Determines Next SEO Client

Recently Agilis Marketing underwent quite a few changes in order to better serve its customers. At this juncture, the company is now a boutique SEO shop that caters to a maximum of a few additional clients per month with the larger portion of the emphasis focused to help grow existing clients’ businesses. As existing clients know this is not a departure from the current strategy, but it seemed worthwhile to place a blog post highlighting such in part to help prevent companies and individuals whom are looking for a onetime solution that such a large portion of search engine optimization purport to provide. SEM is an ongoing process and Agilis Marketing is focused on investing its time with clients whom understand this. Anecdotal evidence clearly illustrates this is the best for all parties involved.

Keeping that strategy in mind provided the idea of utilizing EBay to determine Agilis Marketing’s next client. Usage of the auction site to select a client is likely a onetime event, but it seemed like a unique way to for an established marketing company to choose its next client and an equally appealing venue for customers to select an SEO provider.

Please bid @ EBay by clicking the following link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180684849742

What does my company receive if it wins?

At first glance this might appear to contradict the vision stated at the start of this posting, but as prospective customers will notice this is not the case after looking at what is included:

  • Essentially a complete SEO starter kit for a potential long term client and provider relationship.
  • Up to 40 hours of marketing consulting on a new or existing web property.
  • Extensive keyword research, trends, and analytics, and a suggested focus based upon such.
  • Contextual references from other internet properties that point to the clients’ website.
  • Structuring of the website to include an appropriately optimized hierarchy.
  • Individual coding of web pages to ensure compliance with Agilis Marketing’s SEM standards

As likely already noticed, bidding starts at $500, the company does not mind taking a few thousand dollar hit if the bids do not reach a breakeven point, but it is unfair to existing customers if there is little interest in the auction and a company receives all that included for twelve cents :) .

As mentioned please submit all bids must go through EBay by clicking the following link: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180684849742

Please note that Agilis Marketing will spend a maximum of 40 hours for all the above; do not expect coding of over 1,000 static pages – if such is desired contact Agilis Marketing first or ask a question in the comment section below. Clients with larger websites are welcome to bid, but there is no such thing as a free lunch, thus please describe the projects objectives and we can arrange an appropriate premium for additional services. Please note that the company’s one new client for this month is determined through this eBay Auction thus it is still necessary to bid for the basic package.

Thanks in advance to all those whom elect to participate and best of luck bidding on the SEO campaign!

    Individuals/entities requested additional time to review their plans and thus created the new listing to extend the time. The links to the SEO ebay auction are updated in the post to reflect this. The original listing is at: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=180681216254 Please note that there are no changes to any of the conditions. Thank you to all whom expressed interest.

    The eBay auction closed out with mixed success. While no individuals bid directly through the medium as hoped, many did contact Agilis Marketing, and the company selected one to assist with their SEO project. The company is accepting a couple new clients this month so those who were not selected are welcome to keep in contact if there is still interested and a mutually beneficial relationship is foreseeable.
