We’re not doing the Local SEO work for you, we’re helping you figure out what the work is and helping you do it yourself.

Local SEO Problems We’ve Solved

The Problem: “I just wanted to learn more about Google and Local SEO.”

The Solution: The client in question wanted to learn Local SEO for his own local business. He didn’t want to pay a company thousands of dollars a month to do it right. He wanted to do it on his own. We equipped him with the knowledge he needed to get the job done and outrank other local businesses in his city with 1/8th the budget.

The Problem: “I’m a prominent chiropractor in my area and Google wasn’t reflecting that. We weren’t ranking very well at all.”

The Solution: The client actually had multiple Google My Business pages that was suppressing his ranking. He also had moved within the last 5 years and didn’t close down his old listing either. There were some other issues as well and once all of these were taken care of, he popped right back up to where he should have been otherwise.

The Problem: “I just wanted to learn more about Google and Local SEO.”

The Solution: The client in question wanted to learn Local SEO for his own local business. He didn’t want to pay a company thousands of dollars a month to do it right. He wanted to do it on his own. We equipped him with the knowledge he needed to get the job done and outrank other local businesses in his city with 1/8th the budget.

The Problem: “Our business was planning a transition. We had 2 locations and decided to sell our main location. We needed to transfer our business name to our 2nd location and move everything over there. Our website, business name, everything was involved in the move. We wanted to make sure nothing would get messed up Local SEO wise.”

The Solution: This client was actually very smart and took proactive measures to make sure they kept their Google ranking by coming to us. Knowing that any change in information submitted to Google could go awry, they consulted with us on the move and we helped make sure everything was done according to best practices. They successfully navigated their move and maintained their top ranking on Google, which is extremely rare.

The Problem: “I had been ranking well on Google for a very long time. I decided to drop my Local SEO company and needed someone to help educate me on how to maintain my ranking on Google.”

The Solution: The client here needed a way to keep his ranking without continuing to pay his Local SEO company. He understood he would have to take on the work they were doing to maintain it and that he was willing to do. All he needed was to know what to do, which we were more than happy to help.

The Problem: “I wanted to increase my local business’s ranking on Google but couldn’t afford to hire someone. I had an employee that was capable of doing the work, she just needed to know how to do it.”

The Solution: For this particular client, we met with her employee and taught her everything she needed for internet marketing. This empowered the employee to do her job and allowed the employer to employee a skilled internet marketer without the price tag.

The Problem: “We were a new business and wanted to learn how to get up and running on Google.”

The Solution: We took the client through the steps of learning how to rank on Google and educated her on what to do first and all the way through the Local SEO process. She ended up with all of the knowledge she needed to do Local SEO on her own.

The Problem: “We were a fairly new business but were having a really hard time ranking in Google Maps.”

The Solution: This client was actually suffering from a mistake on Google’s end. The old business that was located at that address before was still showing there on Google and suppressing his ranking. We took a creative approach to the problem and helped them notify Google that they were the only business at that location anymore. We also then helped them develop the right Local SEO strategy that would continue to help them make the proper gains on Google.

The Problem: “We had two businesses that we wanted to rank on Google. One was doing really well but the other was performing very poorly.”

The Solution: This was actually a very special case and took some digging. We found out that both businesses were at the same location and Google was accepting one of the businesses but not the other. We helped them navigate this and helped Google understand they were both two separate businesses. We then proceeded to educate the client on Local SEO and prepared them to take their ranking even further, to the next level.
