This is the proof we all look for. Proof that SEO Services for small businesses work in Vermont and New England. Really where ever you’re located. Properly executed marketing can bring some surprising rewards. It can increase your business locally, regionally and now technically internationally. We don’t have to be a giant company to get these kind of results. Dont actually think a huge corporation would notice these results. Since they are rather personally. Not easily tracked in a market matrix or huge sales revenue increase.
Yesterday I was at a local eatery, by the name of Juniper’s Fare to meet a potential new small business SEO client . Recently I added Juniper’s to my client list. As a barter client even. And met their photographer and graphic designer at this meeting. When we finished up, the photographer asked if “I would be willing to talk to him about how to best promote his business online via Search Engine Optimization”. Of course I agreed and a meeting time set. Might seem like a conflict of interest, since we both are small Vermont Graphic Designers and Digital Photographers. But always looking to expand my client base and help out other VT Businesses I agreed.
Figuring we both enjoyed the food at Juniper’s we decided to meet there for breakfast in a few days time. Fast forward, meeting day around 10am. Sitting down with the graphic designing digital photographer we ordered coffee and some food. And the long list of things to be done to help with their SEO began.
In walks a couple, they sit and look at the menu. Up comes the waitress to take their order. Now the waitress, she is polite and friendly and sociable. They begin talking about menu choices and the what ever it is they talked about. Now Vermont is a small state and since this is a small town. New customers are greeting with curiosity, where are they from or what brings them to this neck of the woods.
Turns out the couple in question were from Toronto, Canada. Seems they were on a bit of a road trip holiday and had decided to visit Waterbury Vermont as they headed further down south. These lovely people then volunteered that they had found the restaurant when looking for a breakfast place in Waterbury, VT., by doing a web search (ok, Google search) for a place to eat here.
Keep in mind, I and my new client are one table away. I see his eyes go wide. I see the waitress face start smile even more. She starts pointing at me, tells the customers ,” Oh that is great, we just started working to get the place found online!“.
She points to me, letting the travelling couple know that I am the reason they found Juniper’s. In turn one of the customers cranes his neck around , smiling at me . His wife (I assume) is facing me, she smiles and waves. Says something to the tune of ‘great job and thank you’.
Needless to say, new client very happy. What would soon be a new client (the graphic designing photographer) pretty much signed on the dotted line right there.
