Do you have anything to show him? Find out what his timeline is and what his goals are and see if you can deliver Also make sure this fits your own goals (Have you set any?) What are the delays in your development pipeline? Will this interest help resolve any?
If people are saying they would pay then ask them to. The question is what are you offering in the paid version that they can't get for free and is it worth paying for. You don't want it too look like a cash grab. You also want to make sure you're not asking people to be the first at the party so make sure you have some key members signed up and active first. Consider giving them free access if it means others will buy in
Do you have a niche? What makes you different than all the other options in the market? Where are your sales coming from right now? Social media is good for lead generation if you're listening properly. The key is to generate thank you'd and wows so you can get yeses when you put out a call to action.
Given Google's current direction, I'd worry less about SEO and focus more on creating fresh relevant content people will want to share online.
I'd be wary of jumping on the content marketing bandwagon and of copying others. If what you want is word of mouth then you have to give people reasons to say thank you and wow before you can get them to say yes to your calls to action which need to be clear. Content should be timely and relevant to people's needs wants and interests whilst hilighting the expertise and passion that backs up your brand promise. This makes for word of mouth within relevant circles.
Arie was a seasoned industry professional who brought significant, relevant and timely expertise to a critical phase of our business transformation process.I am delighted to endorse Arie as a highly competent former colleague whom I would be pleased to work with again anytime.
It was certainly great having Arie on the team. He has a masterful understanding in all that is marketing and was a huge part of our original strategy. He is able to see the big picture and to think creatively within our framework.
I just wished I had the money to keep him on board.

I am happy to commend Arié Moyal for any social media and modern, internet related marketing strategies.

Arie has a great heart & international mindset that allows him to develop valuable communication strategies that support making the world a better place for us all. He's developed HugTainUSA (a growing annual social-media NFP-fund-raising movement) and I believe there will be a stampede of sponsors and clients hunting him down in the next few weeks and months.

I brought Arie in to coach my staff on best practice in social media engagement. Arie has the right philosophy and approach in this area and his conviction and passion shines through. I recommend Arie to anyone looking to improve the way they engage their customers and amplify their brand values and proposition through social media channels.
Arié is one of the most passionate supporters of Social Media to effect real change in organisations and society I have met. He knows the topic inside out and is constantly coming up with new creative ways to leverage online engagement to further charitable causes.
I first met Arie earlier this summer and have appreciated his Twitter stream for some time - he is perceptive and invariably shares useful links. When I was unable to attend a conference recently, he seemed the obvious choice to run with it quickly and effectively. Arie more than surpassed my expectations, forging key contacts and tweeting the most important content live. Employing him has been a real eye opener, because he performed as a committed member of our team and represented our company extremely well. As a recent business start-up, it is marvellous to know that Arie can help us to increase our capacity quickly and that he will represent our best interests without fail. Branding is so much more than just theory and in Arie, our experience is practice par excellence.
Arie consulted with us about our Leap CR platform implementation. His knowledge of the third sector in general is exceptional and his contacts are vast. It is always a pleasure to talk with Arie, he is usually the person I go to when I need advice about a complex issue.
Working with Arie has been extremely helpful for getting my company on target with social media. Social media for me has been a steep learning curve in understanding the mindset, importance and do's and don'ts.
Arie made it easy to understand, quick to implement and enjoyable to do.
I'm enjoying the results of a much larger base of people to reach out to, thanks to Arie's help.
"I worked with Arié Moyal at babyTEL and after his leave on other projects and was always very impressed with his knowledge of online marketing and community management for social sites. He is generous and approaches each project with enthusiasm and love for the work-ahead. I highly recommend him.
