“ Digital Marketing is a long game.”
Real success in digital marketing is measured in year over year growth.
When done right, you will see early wins, quick gains and long term success but it starts, oddly enough, with a good plan for a solid foundation that's designed from the ground up to grow.
Year over year can be a bumpy ride.
The history of this account actually dates back to 2009 but the data was recorded in another profile, as a Sr. SEO Specialist for an ad agency in Orlando.
I left that agency as a W-2 employee to go back to freelance contracting.
Shortly after my departure .Com Marketing (the former Ad Agency) white label contracted up to 90% of their clients through me.
.Com Marketing eventually became something else and then was sold off.
This particular account left the agency sometime during the transition and waited out my 12 month non-compete to hire me directly.
They're still with me today and one of my favorite clients.
In those days SEO was king and I could get any site ranked in a few weeks, days or even hours under the right circumstances.
But the Google landscape is very different these days.
Results are created differently and the pace can be a marathon if you're under funded.

Local Google Marketing
Getting Found On Phones
This is HOW people find you on their phones.
It is the core focus of local search marketing.
Sure they can find you on any other number of devices like their tablets, laptops and desktops.
But it's the phone that's with them almost all day.
Understanding how local search works and how it fits as a cornerstone in your marketing foundation is a critical key to long term success...*even for online businesses with no physical store.
