Local Search Marketing–What I do

My expertise is local search marketing.  My roots spring from local retail marketing as well as internet marketing.  I work with entrepreneurs and solo business owners to help them create an internet presence that allows them to take advantage of the many customers using the internet to find a local business.  Local search marketing will do more to make a small business successful than any other marketing tool.

Why Do Local Search Marketing?

Here’s my take on what’s happening with small businesses and internet marketing.

  • 20% of all internet searches are looking for a local business, product or service.
  • Only 4% of small business owners have established a local internet presence.
  • Local search marketing is the best marketing tool to locate customers who are ready to buy your product or service!
  • Local search marketing are free services!

About Me

I live in Minnesota where the winters are very cold and the summers to short to improve my golf game.  I am a father of a 15 year old daughter,Laura, who would like to be 18–a challenge for both her mom and I.  I wrote poetry for 10 years and writing continues to be a passion of mine.

When you come from a working class background as I did, you develop a strong work ethic, you learn to do the job right the first time, and you want to be judged by your results.  I volunteer at my church and help Habitate for Humanity with my hands.

I have fun teaching others about local search marketing.  I meet some really wonderful people.  They teach me a lot; I try to return the favor. People tell me my programs has helped their businesses.   I believe you should make a contribution to the world in which you live.

Hey there Al,
I like your style and I would like to keep in touch. I think we have been on the “same page” where the FFC is concerned, or at a minimum, “in the same chapter.” Also reading your blog, seems as though we share some similar passions.

Keep in touch,
