Inspirational British leader Winston Churchill once said "Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference." I took that optimistic approach and founded Integrity Marketing & Consulting to help get brands recognized and their sites ranked highly.
I often say, "trying to accomplish the desired results from SEO without great content and branding is like trying to mix cement without water. You will not get solid long term results." But I also say this must result in more prospects and an increased bottom line to make clients happy. Accountability is key here. "A satisfied customer is the best business strategy of all." - Michael LeBoeuf
Bragging rights: #1 Search engine rankings in Google for "SEO Fort Lauderdale" and "Internet Marketing Fort Lauderdale". Search for yourself to confirm.
I consider myself an entrepreneurial-minded business owner, where I take my years of experience in SEO and branding and use that to increase online awareness of companies by getting their websites to the top of major search engines for relevant keywords. I have accomplished this for myself and my clients.
All work and no play makes Brian a dull boy. Brian enjoys life with his beautiful wife and three kids. His love of SEO and Social Media play second fiddle to his family and faith. In his spare time, you'll find Brian enjoying the bread sticks from Olive Garden, rocking out to some good hip-hop or dubstep, learning from the entrepreneurs on Shark Tank, taking in a good movie with the family, and quoting random world thought leaders. "Positive thinking will let you do everything better than negative thinking will." - Zig Ziglar
Hey Gail, great post! I guess we could call this image optimization... ;)
Having an online portfolio can be very beneficial, like you've stated in this post. Especially for businesses such as tattoe parlors / artists, salons, graphic designers, web designers, wedding planners, auto dealerships, photographers and churches. Add keyword rich alt tags, descriptive captions and pin it buttons. And share away!
Great post Jonathan! The value of video marketing should not be ignored and businesses can benefit greatly by utilizing this technique. As a matter of fact, it's about time to start producing more videos for my business.
Mandy, Mandy, Mandy...let me be the Ed in your life. I hear you on not having enough time to be active on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest and Linkedin. I was the same way before December of 2013, until my marketing / developer friend Ed called me out and challenged me to give Linkedin a fair shot. He claimed that it would turn into one of my favorites. You can read my story in more detail here with some great tips "Linkedin Optimization: How to Generate Leads From Your Linkedin Profile" http://ow.ly/CgmkH. Let me know what you think.
So anyway, I gave it a shot and to be honest, since I've learned how to harness the power of what Linkedin has to offer, it's one of my favorites. I've added it to my arsenol and use it combination with Twitter, Facebook and Google+. I invested $47 in a premium account per month and the return so far has been around 5k since May. And that is reoccuring revenue from Linkedin leads. For me the numbers speak for themselves. I've now setup services just for Linkedin - Linkedin Optimization. And I'm now using Linkedin ads and so far so good.
Great post here Mandy but I hope you see the potential in my story. If not at least connect with me on there. :)

You're welcome James! Thanks for the kind words. I generally use Open Site Explorer to identify link rank, inbound and outbound. For page age, here is a cool tool http://www.webconfs.com/domain-age.php. Domain age is good to track as well. Thanks for the question, I hope that helps.
