How Venchito Went From VA to 12 Person Agency Owner

In this episode of the Lion Zeal Show, I’m joined by Venchito Tampon, a 23 year old SEO agency owner from the Philippines.

Venchito is a SEO that’s been featured on SearchEngineLand, Ahrefs blog, SearchEngineJournal, and a number of other blogs. He currently runs an agency in the Philippines dealing with clients all over the world, providing white hat link building.

In this episode, we cover:

  • How to get your first client from just 10-15 minutes per day of work
  • Advice for hiring Filipino virtual assistants (and treating them well)
  • How to get clients coming to you so you can demand higher fees
  • How to overcome the “obstacle” of being from a country like the Philippines when selling to western companies

Enjoy the show? Venchito is doing a survey to learn more about PBNs, and would love your feedback.

He’ll be sharing the results in the group afterwards.

    It was only a matter of time!

    They are perfectly positioned to take of advantage of the tonne of exceptional talent on their doorstep and make a killing online. Fair play to him well done .

    Good video, Daryl.

      Haha, for sure. Hopefully there’s plenty of other people taking advantage of it too.

      Think a lot of people just have this fear that people won’t work with them, or pay them as well because of where they’re from.

    Really enjoyed this weeks podcast. I noticed the Sharp Rocket website one of the services offered is infographic creation. I wish you guys got into that. It’s a powerful tool that I have never mastered. I remember Venchito saying he has a full time graphic artist on staff. Maybe it’s a good subject for an upcoming podcast. I would love to see some resources on how to use infographics most effectively.

    Anyway great broadcast. Thanks again.

      Thanks buddy. There is always too many potential topics to cover for the amount of time we have lol. But different link building tactics like that could definitely be an interesting discussion.
