For years now, many of have noticed how spending advertising dollars online seems to be a wise choice. We see the conversion rates of online campaigns. We try to explain this to others, but it often gets ignored – especially by the big companies and the big marketing agencies.
This week we have some proof.
Silicon Alley Insider provides some big picture hard numbers…
Everyone talks about advertising dollars shifting online, but when you’re fighting all day in the trenches it’s easy to miss the big picture. Here’s the big picture:
Basically, if you live or work in the Lake Norman region, you know these guys and the work they do. If not, something is seriously wrong. You owe it to yourself to become acquainted with them (and what they do) as soon as possible…
To start with, McBryde Website design has built the majority of websites that are local to Mooresville, in particular. Don’t believe me? Check out their portfolio here.
Already own a website, you say? Then check out Best of Lake Norman. It’s a good opportunity to get more visibility and a decent local in-bound link, which is so important to search engine visibility.
But the best part is meeting the men behind McBryde web development in person. These two are focused on just plain doing a good job for their clients. They care. Period. They aren’t so obsessed with making money that they forget about the human beings that they service.
It’s a refreshing model that just plain works. We feel the same way here at Hippo Internet Marketing. We look forward to working with them more in the future and referring clients to them.
By the way, if you are looking for a simple, well optimized website, contact these guys. They know good, basic SEO and Kevin in particular is looking forward to joining us for our upcoming SEO Classes in Mooresville.
I got a head start on my networking “surge” for August by attending the Charlotte Chamber “Member Orientation 102” meeting yesterday (July 31). The program had two parts to it:
The Charlotte Chamber has plenty of research information if any of their members need it. That’s great. In fact, I’ve already emailed Erin Casullo (director of research) to see if she can provide me some info we’re needing.
They have plenty of advertising opportunities available to members (no big surprise).
L. A. Management Company (Lou Amico)
At the end of the meeting, Lou Amico of L.A. Management was one of the sponsors and explained to all in attendance that his company operates locally. They do multimedia, web, and SEO, among other things.
