Words of Wisdom
As the owner of a “brick and mortar” business where location matters, a top ranking in a search engine with a mapping feature such as Google Maps or Yelp will lead to increased sales. As a consumer, how many times have you used these search engines to find a local service provider? When Trevor helped his client rank in the Top 3 of Google Maps in his area, his sales increased dramatically. This simple strategy can keep a continuous flow of new customers rolling in for a long time to come!
