Start A Link Building Service

Building links is necessary as it helps businesses improve the site’s visibility. However, link building can be overwhelming, so business owners hire experts.

If you are interested in starting an SEO business, anything along with link building can be a profitable venture. To become a link-building expert, embrace learning new SEO techniques, focus on producing valuable content, and network with other content creators.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a link building service:

1. Get Found XL ($420K/year)

Justas Markus (from Vilnius) started Get Found XL over 6 years ago.

Revenue
$35K / month
Team
2 founders / 4 employees

Case Study

Hello guys! My name is Justas Markus, and I’m the co-founder of GetFound XL, a link building company. I started the company almost 4 years ago with my buddy Tomas Laurinavicius who was interviewed by Starter Story a few months ago.

For our agency, it was a perfect decision to focus only on one thing. All the processes are optimized, it's enough to have 3-4 full-time employees and, most importantly, deliver the highest quality services.

Amit Raj (from Glasgow, UK) started The Links Guy over 6 years ago.

Revenue
$25K / month
Team
1 founders / 10 employees

Case Study

I’m Amit, the Founder of The Links Guy, a link building & digital PR agency based in the UK. We specialize in link building, and this is our core (and only) offering. We tend to work with very tech-focused clients, however, our client base has ranged in everything from cybersecurity, B2B SaaS, cosmetic dentistry, finance, and citizenship by investment. You name it, we’ve probably worked on it in some form!

We’ve undergone a re-brand (was originally Amit Digital Marketing). Since we started back in early 2016, the brand has gone through several changes, expanded in size, and especially in the last 2 years, has increasingly been improved by input from individuals in my team. We’re in a much more stable and fruitful position than when I started, and have worked with clients and built connections with people and organizations I never dreamt I would have when I first dabbled in link building all those years back.

3. Novus Digital Ltd ($240K/year)

Alex Robinson (from Northampton, UK) started Novus Digital Ltd over 3 years ago.

Revenue
$20K / month
Team
1 founders / 7 employees

Case Study

Hi, my name’s Alex and I’m the founder of Novus Digital. We’re an SEO agency with a twist, meaning that rather than bamboozling clients with buzzwords, our campaigns are all about delivering measurable return on investment.

We’re currently a team of 8, with ambitious growth plans for 2022. Currently generating $20,000 per month, we’re currently deliberately running on below target profit margins. The goal for this was to build the strongest possible foundation in terms of team and processes in order to allow us to grow exponentially, whilst minimising the operational pains that come with this.

Tim Leland started a link management and URL shortener tool called T.LY in 2020.

The founder comes from a software engineer background and has deep knowledge of programming & software development.

He wanted to create software to simplify the process of creating short links with just one click. As a result, he developed the URL Shortener browser extension, which streamlines the process of designing, sharing, and tracking short URLs.

The concept for the URL shortener extension emerged as Google was deactivating its own. T.LY currently tracks more than 100 million clicks from more than 10 million short URLs.
