What does your business do?
We get clients ranked in the Google Maps 3-Pack.
When and why did you start the biz?
Started in August 2014 - to help small-to-medium sized local businesses
and service providers get their listing ranked at the Top of Google for
their most important keywords. It's tough for small businesses to
compete if they aren't highly visible in Google search results.
How Many People are in your Company?
Where's your office?
Our location has two offices, with all the computers and
printing/mailing devices we need to run an online business with clients
across the US.
What's the toughest part of running your biz?
The toughest part is - overcoming the negative reputation that
foreign 'SEO' emailers have created. We are professional people (one
MBA and even one attorney!) who have run entrepreneurial businesses
in the past, and understand the marketing challenges faced by small
business owners today.
What's the most fun part?
The most FUN is when we achieve ranking in the Google 3-Pack for the

What advice do you have for others?
You should calculate the ROI (Return on Investment) of the top spots in
search results. It's an investment that pays back 10x and more. You
will profit and grow your business with this online exposure - simply
due to the volume of relevant traffic that sees your listing.
How do you use Idea Cafe to help your biz?
I love introducing my clients to Idea Cafe - a neutral, safe and
informative "Executive Roundtable" to get ideas and exchange info. I
always advise to share more than you seek. It's never bad advice.
School (where, still in school, degree)?
Prior jobs or business?
A career of being an entrepreneur, starting and running businesses in
many different industries.

What are your pets' names?
Moses - Mixed breed rescue dog
Do any of these pets help with your biz?
Moses sleeps at my side while I work all day. He is very old, so he is
quiet and content.
