Hi, I’m John Richards, your local SEO Expert. I work exclusively with small businesses that depend on local consumers for business.
Why should you listen to me?
Like you, I am a small business owner who’s lively hood depended on getting business from the locals. I started my first home based business in 2005. I’m a bit shy, so going out, meeting people, shaking babies and kissing hands was never my thing. I knew if I was going to survive, I needed to have a website on the first page of Google! So I did what most business owners do. I paid a someone to build a website and hired other companies to do other forms of internet marketing for me.
After the first year of getting ripped off and barely getting by, I decided I needed to learn everything I could about local online marketing web design, SEO, PPC, and anything related to internet marketing and fire all of those bozos. It was the beginning of my evolution as a local SEO expert.
It took me almost a month to build my first website. But it was worth it because in less than a month my website was on the first page of Google. In 2006 there were a lot less websites than their are today, so it was a little easier back then.
Nobody Is Perfect
I have had set backs. My website actually got dropped off the face of Google because I tried to take some short cuts. At first, my website went to number #1 for my most competitive keyword. When Google caught on to what I was doing my website dropped like an anchor. I learned the hard way, there are no short cuts if you want long term internet success!
As I became more educated, a funny thing happened. I was becoming a local SEO expert and consultant. Other business owners would ask me “Who does your internet stuff?” When I told them I did, they would start asking me questions. Then I began getting phone calls from people saying “So and so told me I should call you.” Everybody I helped would ask me how I knew so much about SEO and internet marketing. It’s actually pretty easy. All I did was give up sleep, took the time to educate myself, got experience doing the work and I still had to go out everyday and do the jobs I was generating.
All of the people I have helped in the past told me I was in the wrong business and encouraged me become a local SEO consultant. So that’s what I did.
Today, I sell the leads from my old company website to one of my former competitors. He could never get to the first page of Google!
I want to help more local business owners get real results from their internet marketing efforts.
When I did pay for local SEO expert services, they never had terms and conditions that I liked. I hated getting stuck in long term contracts, set up fees, no exclusivity and no guarantees. So I wanted Local Online Marketing HQ to be different.
