James Schramko is one of the frequent commenters....look at what he had to say regarding car dealers and realtors:
Spot on Andrew,
Car dealers will pay $6000 per website and there are plenty of other businesses out there in a similar situation.
Finance and realty brokers are another example. Basically any business in the small to medium segment (who balk at $20,000 agency sites) will lap up a $6 - $10k SEO ptimized, copywritten custom site.

Excellent post Andrew. Most of my efforts in late 2007 were aimed at brick and mortar businesses and ways of building residual income streams using the very expertise that you point out is common knowledge on this very forum.
It really IS that easy, although when many hear that they need to actually get out and talk to
local business owners they lose their enthusiasm for some reason.
Those business owners are looking for places to spend their advertising dollar... and will spend it with you if you show that you can deliver results.
