Local Online Marketing & Websites


Local Business Online Marketing

Can people find your business on Google?

As a 'Local' business, the single most effective marketing you can do is to keep your Google Business Profile (GBP) up to date.


  • People searching for businesses on Google are 'ready to buy'.
  • It's free. You just need to know what to do.
  • Regular updates make your business more 'credible' to Google which means higher ranking in Google Maps and Search results.
  • Neglecting your presence on Google frustrates customers.

Website Design & Development

As a small business or nonprofit, the first important decision you need to make about your website is... how often do you need to update the information on the site?

A 'business card' website is only occasionally updated. The information on the site is 'evergreen'. It lasts a long time. Changes to hours, holidays, menu items and booking or delivery orders can be handled on your Google Business Profile.

A 'dynamic' website, like WordPress, is good for businesses that continuously update inventory or write blog posts as part of their marketing strategy.

December 5th, 2022

As a small, local business owner, the goal isn’t to get people to visit your website. The goal is to get people to come into your store, or call for an appointment.

A website is a marketing tool. So, getting people to your website is about making sure your marketing dollars are well spent.

Local Business SEO Consultant

Since 2010 ~ Yolo County, CA

Established in 2010 in Yolo County, CA, I help local, small (and very small) businesses and non-profits build a solid, maintainable online presence.

I specialize in developing well-crafted, useful and successful websites, providing affordable Google marketing services to my local community (Yolo County, CA) and writing about web development and small business marketing.

I am an experienced front-end web developer and digital project manager. I use the best standards of the day to ensure my clients' websites are fast, searchable, accessible, secure and easy to use, whether on a desktop or mobile device.

I'm more of an organizational and technical type than a creative type. I believe in the power of measurement and strategy to build success. That's what I advocate for with my small business and non-profit clients.
