It’s a fact of the information age we’re living in now: customers are searching online for the products and services that they want before they buy, and they are buying from the businesses that they find when they search.

So if your business is not getting found in online searches for your product or service categories, or you’re not on the map when customers do location-based searches on their smartphones, then the reality is that your competitors who are getting found are getting the benefit of all that new business.

In today’s hyper-connected online world, the printed Yellow Pages have become virtually irrelevant, newspaper & magazine advertising have essentially lost their audiences, and even radio advertising is less effective than it used to be.

Effective Solutions
At, what we know is that for most local businesses, finding the time just to understand your marketing options in the online world is hard enough, but on top of that, figuring out which online marketing solutions are going to be the most effective and not wasting your precious time or marketing dollars can seem almost impossible.

What do you really need?
For starters, while it’s true that having a website for your business is required these days, it’s also true that a quickly-thrown-together or out-of-date website can do more harm than good for your business. What you really need is a well-designed, attractive website that is also optimized to attract search traffic in your business categories and your local geographical area.

Next, “if you build it, they will come” does not work on the internet – if all you have is a website, and you haven’t implemented any marketing strategies for getting your website found by your target market, then your website is not doing the best job that it could for you. To get found, the first thing you need to implement is an effective search optimization (SEO) strategy. For example, if you search on “SEO consulting in Bellevue” or “Kirkland SEO” in your favorite search engine, you will find our site ranked well for those categories.

Search engine optimization is a powerful strategy for positioning your site as high as possible – ideally in the top position – in the search engine rankings on Google, Bing, and Yahoo. The problem is that there are so many “SEO experts” out there who use “quick and dirty” methods to get your site ranked quickly to impress you, but the methods they use are ones that can actually penalize your site in the rankings over time. They might get your site onto page 1 fast, but it won’t stay there long and then it may be next to impossible to do quality SEO work the right way to get you ranked again.

At, we work with you and use only quality SEO methods that have been proven to deliver effective results over time, so you can rest assured that your site will maintain its ranking for as long as you continue to work with us. In fact, we guarantee it, and we provide an online dashboard personalized for your business where you can check on your site’s ranking any time. What you’ll find is that SEO is really an investment that pays dividends – having more customers finding your site first translates directly into more sales and revenues for your business.

Beyond SEO
Besides quality SEO, Local Business Listing Optimization (or LBLO) has proven over time to help tremendously with establishing your businesses website as a trusted source with the search engines. With LBLO, we optimize you business’ listing in the three major local business directories (Google Places, Bing Local, and Yahoo Local) as well as up to 340+ additional local business directories on the internet, and even in many specialized directories we go find for you that fit for the categories in which you do business. We not only offer separate SEO and LBLO packages, but also combined packages that help your website get ranked while keeping more of your marketing dollars in your pocket.

While SEO and LBLO are the basics, we can also help you with designing highly effective and economical Pay-Per-Click advertising campaigns, innovative Social Media marketing strategies, and we even have great strategies for using Text Messaging marketing and affordable Smartphone Apps customized for your local business.
