My dream of owning a graphic design business had come true. I had my equipment, knew what to do, and had a few customers. The problem started when the economy took a turn for the worse. My local customer base dwindled to less than 5 regulars. I was not making ends meet.
I was about to consider bankrupting the business when a friend of mine mentioned search engine optimization. I did have a website that was full of my beautiful designs, but the site was getting no traffic. My friend said that this company did cheap SEO business and that their turnaround was fast.
In less than 2 weeks I had quadrupled the traffic on my website, and added few new clients. In a month I had enough business to pay the bills again.
