People ask me what resources I use or just highly recommend. Here are some that come to mind:
Whitespark Local Citation Finder – My favorite paid local SEO tool.
Moz Local – The free scan is always first check-up I do, and especially for a new businesses the paid version ($84/year) can be an economical and efficient way to take care of some tricky local listings.
Ahrefs – Super-thorough backlinks analysis. I use it every day.
GetFiveStars – Handy system for contacting your customers by email and encouraging them to write reviews.
Grade.us – A great way to make a “reviews” page to go on your site or be hosted off-site. Link to it in your email signature, or give customers the URL on a postcard, or get creative.
Aweber – The email-management system I’ve used for years.
Asana – The project-management tool I and my helpers use to get things done.
Joker Media – WordPress specialists who also offer video production and hosting. Josh Benson (owner) and I have worked together on many projects over the years, and he’s great.
Touch Point Digital Marketing – David Deering is an expert in Schema.org markup, and is pretty handy at website development and graphic design projects.
Evolving SEO – Dan Shure is a well-known SEO and a straight shooter, and I recommend him if you need help with national SEO.
MeasuredSEM – Running a big AdWords campaign? Tom Demers is a PPC specialist, a good guy, and was Wordstream employee #3.
Jonathan Rozek, my father, is your go-to guy if you need an ace copywriter or a conversion-rate optimization expert. He’s been the right-hand man to a real-estate tycoon, a dentist who retired at 40, and a billionaire. Hire him while you still can.
