I was not posting directly in response to your post. I agree that there are some clients that do not warrant SEO work (or it should not be the primary focus). But everyone was posting their thoughts and I wanted to post a "field test" if you will. As business owners we need to come up with a good product/service but more importantly a product/service with demand. I am running into (and have for the last 18 months) business owners that have a website but it does nothing to push their business to the next level. They can see logically that the internet should be a powerful tool but they are not seeing that in real world application. I think in part that is because their sites were designed with look/functionality as a priority (not saying these are not important) without a way to deliver the traffic. The business owner doesn't even realize WHAT the problem is but just knows there is a problem.
