What We Do

We Help Small Business Owners & Partner Agencies Get The Most Out Of Their Websites

The Internet world has changed dramatically since we began offering our Digital Marketing & Local SEO Services more than 15 years ago. Luckily, we have adapted with the times. If your website doesn’t appear in search engine results, isn’t getting the traffic you anticipated or continues to underperform & underdeliver (or is buried somewhere deep on the 10th page), we can fix that. If your competitors continually & consistently outrank you in search results & online presence, we can correct that. If you’re a small agency looking to expand upon your B2B/B2C capabilities, we’d love to partner with you! Our local digital marketing experts can perform Technical & Accessibility Audits (aligned with Google’s best practices & algorithm factors), Keyword / Ranking Assessments, and Competitor Analysis to give you the standout edge you need to be successful.

How We Do It

We Take An Integrated Marketing Approach To Driving Quality Traffic To Your Website

If you want to stand out online, your website content (i.e. language, etc.) must be as relevant as possible to what your users are searching for. Think of your website content like an academic term paper. In a research paper, if you employ clear language, discuss information with detail, & use quality sources, then your professor will be pleased, & you will receive a good grade because your content aligned with what your teacher wanted.

Likewise, if your website content aligns with what Google expects to see & is relevant to your prospective audience, then you will receive a good grade in regard to search engine output. So, in any proposed marketing solution, we may include the following services to help support your site or that of your clients’:

  • Digital Marketing Strategy – providing a holistic approach to getting in front of quality leads
  • Content Creation & Syndication – getting your content out there to the right people
  • Social Media – making sure that you’re visible to your users & the sites they interact with most frequently
  • Email Marketing – maintaining regular communication with your users is important for helping maintain relationships & growing your business
  • Paid Search/PPC – putting together a series of paid ads to help reinforce your brand/messaging/product sales/promotions through Adwords, Bing, Facebook or other networks
  • Local SEO – capitalizing on your target market (most people look for services or shop within 35 miles of where they live)
