“Over the past seven years I’ve contracted with several SEO agencies to assist with search marketing for my business and on behalf of my clients. They all ultimately failed to deliver what they promised and it was hard to determine what actual work they had performed. I’ve worked with Phil for almost a year now and his services have been highly effective. He builds high-quality links and has provided great content and on-page SEO advice. He is easy to work with and the services he delivers are completely transparent. In my 30+ years in business it has been rare to work with a vendor who provides as much value for the money as Phil does.”
—Bill Frink, Owner, Frink Inc. Advertising
“Helped Bottom Line”
“Phil’s knowledge and expertise in organic SEO is as good as it gets. He has helped my business and my bottom line. My return on investment was better than I had hoped. I highly recommend Phil to anyone who is looking for an honest SEO professional.”
—Michael Mandis, Owner, Alliance Mortgage Funding, Inc.
“Our Campaign Site Went to #1”
“Absolutely can’t write enough good things about Local Visibility. Top notch. Able to explain technical jargon in layman’s terms to we mere mortals. With LV’s guidance, our campaign website went from nowhere-to-be-found to top of page 1 in less than a month. A miracle, I tell you. Communicative, accessible, helpful and patient.”
—Shareen Crosby, Campaign Manager, Natasha Von Imhof for Alaska State Senate (later won election to State Senate in November 2016)
“Steady Flow of Clients”
“Phil is a top-notch guy to work with in every sense of the word. He is super knowledgeable and stays on the cutting edge of everything related to online marketing. Phil’s passion for his work…and MY SUCCESS…has been obvious from day one. I’m from the ‘Show Me State’ and I must say I was a bit skeptical at first. But Phil has done just what he promised – Shown me the RESULTS! After just 2 months of working with Phil, my online business jumped 220% and I’ve been setting records ever since.”
—Shannon Anderson, Owner, Heartland Counseling Center
Cape Girardeau, MO
“Increase in Calls”

—Ayodeji Badaki, Esq., The Badaki Law Firm, LLC
#1 in Hagerstown for “bankruptcy lawyer” and “bankruptcy attorney”
“Progress in Short Time”
“I had Phil do an X-ray for my business and was completely blown away by how thorough and detailed his reports were. He even helped with things that I did not expect. I have already increased my rankings greatly and it has only been a short period of time. I now have a very clear plan that I am following to improve my website and rankings. This was priceless. Having everything laid out this way has been so motivational! It used to be a chore to try and figure this stuff out and implement it now it is actually fun. Phil is just an incredible person, he actually cares about his clients and goes way above and beyond to help them out. I always know that when I get hung up on something I can send a quick email and he will help me out. If you are skeptical about his services, don’t be! He is the real deal.”
—Lenny Kammes, Kammes Colorworks, Inc.
“People Drive 40 Miles to Get to Me”
“My business as a firearms instructor is very local. Most of my revenue comes from teaching a handgun law course that is required for the Texas License to Carry. While there is a lot of interest in this, there are also a lot of instructors, probably 20-30 within 20 miles of me, including every shooting range. The conventional wisdom has been that clients won’t travel more than 10-12 miles for such instruction. Customer loyalty is a very minor factor, as most of these people I see only once.
Because I come from a computer science background, I was able to build my own website, but I knew there were features of both technical SEO and social media marketing that were beyond me, as well as traps laid by Google that could sink my rankings. I was looking for some help in optimizing my exposure without a long-term contract, when I found Phil.
I was hesitant at first to spend several hundred dollars, but after reading his free newsletter, and the articles on his website, I decided that if he could give away such valuable tips, the ones he sold must be even better. I was right.
His list of suggestions had remarkable results. There might not have been any single item that was a game changer, but the sum of the suggestions, and the directions they took me, allowed me to position my business so that, when current events led to a surge in interest in my offerings, I was in the right place. My website traffic now is double and triple what it was, and people are registering for my classes over a month in advance. Some people drive 40 miles to get to me.
“Do not hesitate to do business with Phil; it will absolutely pay for itself.”
—Dr. Sandy Keathley, McKinney Firearms Training
“To the Top We Went”
“Once we worked with Phil on Google Places, we shot up to the top in no time. We have had a great return on our investment….. When we ask new patients how they heard about us, they say that our listing was the top search for ‘Fresno Dentist,’ and seeing that we were at the top of each category, they knew that our office was right for them. Thanks for your help in taking us to the top Phil! Your work is absolutely appreciated.”

“Allows Me to Focus on What I Do Best”
“After getting sick of paying through the nose for ads, I hired Phil back in 2010 to help get my landscaping business more visible in local search. He helped me do so and within a few months my local Google rankings got to the point where I was able to turn off my ads and save about $1,100 / month in ad spend.
“I then got Phil’s Done for You service the following winter (for my wintertime business, rooftop ice removal). He kept me in the Google Places Top 3 all winter (and I’m still there to this day), and this was a major factor in having the most profitable winter in my 16 years in business. I’ve since hired Phil for help in just about every other online aspect of my business.
“At this point I consider Phil a partner in my business. He sets em’ up, and I knock em’ down! I can no longer imagine my business without Phil’s services. I certainly wouldn’t be where I am today without my visibility to local customers. I profit more than I used to because I’m better able to focus on what I do best (landscaping) by allowing Phil to do what he does best (getting me found).”

“Our website went live in August 2013 and after a year we were doing well in the organic results for all of our main keywords but couldn’t crack the Places listings. Phil used his super x-ray powers to show us what we had to do and within just three weeks of implementing his suggestions we were in the A and B spots across the board! Traffic has nearly doubled and our books are steadily filling up. All with squeaky clean, nothing shady SEO. It can be done.”

“Above and Beyond”
“If you want to be found in local search, stop wasting time & hire Phil. I have seen a tremendous increase in my calls / leads for my target market since hiring Local Visibility System. I am now coming up in organic search + regular search. I learned a ton as I went through the process with Phil….The amount of work / education that Phil and his team provide is way above and beyond. The level of detail, responsiveness & expertise is unmatched. In addition to all of the above, Phil is great guy, honest and extremely trustworthy. I recommend him to anyone that wants to grow their business.”

“Business Has Picked Up”
“Let’s face it, running a business is not an easy task. Most days spent dealing with customers, paperwork, and figuring out how you’re going to fit a decent meal in between. I’ve had to learn through the years to take a step back and really think about what I can and can’t do for my company. Websites, reviews and Google Places is not my strong suit.
I met Phil and his team some years back through a gentleman that built my website. They have done numerous projects together and I have seen the evidence of what Phil does working for many businesses, not just my own. After hiring Phil and his team to work with one of my sites I got to really work hand in hand with him. His communication skills, patience and expertise are top notch. I’ve never gone without a return phone call or email to one of my genius questions I seem to have from time to time. Business has 100% without a doubt picked up because of the work Phil and his team have done with my site. I highly recommend Local Visibility System to anyone that is looking to ‘Step it Up a Notch’ for their business and knows when to take a step back and realize we can’t do everything that has to do with our business. Phil is honest, upfront and will walk you through the whole process. That’s why he’s already worked on our second website and continues to work with us on other projects.”

“Phil definitely knows his stuff. We moved into a new market and felt that getting up to the top of Google local would be very important. In 3 months, we were #1 in local Google for our search. It has been over 6 months now and we are still #1. In addition, our website also ranks high in neighboring cities. I attribute much of this to Phil’s knowledge of Google and other important listing sites. He’s been great to work with, and has continued to be there to help us through any glitches. Thanks Phil. I highly recommend you to other businesses, and will be using you for any future needs we have with Google Places/Maps.”

“Delivers a Competitive Edge”
“If internet marketing and your local search results are important to your business you NEED Phil. At Closet Tec we spend a great deal of time and money marketing our company online. In fact, on a weekly basis we track both local and organic SERP’s for over 160 parameters. So we know a little bit about SEO and on a daily basis we keep tuned into what the industry experts have to say. Prior to hiring Phil our search results were very good. However, our market is very competitive and we were looking for a competitive edge. As Phil said in our initial interview, internet marketing is often “a game of inches”. Despite thinking we had all our bases covered Phil was able to deliver those needed inches and help our search results tremendously.””
—Jeff Unthank, Closet Tec Inc.
“How It Should Be Done”
“One day I received a call off my webpage from a potential client. Before the client discussed his case, he wanted to tell me that he is an IT professional….He wanted me to know that I was the first professional he has spoken to where he can’t tell me that he can help me with my website or search engine optimization. He stated that whomever I am using, it is money extremely well spent. He said that as soon as he did a Google search in his area for a lawyer, I immediately came up on his screen. The following day he hired me.
“Not only has Phil’s Google visibility program brought me clients, but it’s nice when those clients include IT professionals who look at your website and online presence and compliment you by saying ‘this is how it should be done.'”

“Business Has Picked Up”
“I had signed up for Phil’s newsletters and started getting VERY valuable, succinct, SEO information. There is so much out there to read and stay up on but he would focus his newsletter on just achieving one thing. The more I read, the more I liked what he had to say. If I shot him a question back, he was always quick with a reply and if he didn’t know the answer he told me where I could find it.
“I hired him to do an X-Ray of my website and he provided me with some great feedback, which I implemented. Business has picked up and I think that in the long haul it will even more. It was money very well spent! Thanks so much for all your help Phil!”

“An Asset to My Local SEO Company”
“Phil has been a tremendous asset to my own local SEO consultancy business. Whenever I run into any complex issues with Google+ Local or any aspects of local SEO for that matter, I turn to Phil. He’s always quick to respond with helpful advice. But what I like most about Phil (aside from his extensive knowledge on all things local), is that he’s honest, ethical, and just a great guy to work with. We are lucky to have someone like him in our industry!”
—Travis Van Slooten, Local SEO Consultant, TVS Internet Marketing
“Customers Actually Showed Up”
“Searching for a better way to reach local customers, I clicked on a PPC ad and ordered a $300 guide to getting found locally. Phil’s Local Visibility System came and I followed the steps. Each one was logical, simple and easy to enact. Within a month I saw results. Not just impressions, or clicks, but real results in terms of sales. Customers actually showed up and told me they found me online and more importantly told me how and what they clicked to find me…I made the $300 back in just one sale and have benefited from my investment in the Local Visibility System many times over…I am buying Adwords clicks at about $2.50 each. That means that I got $5700 in clicks for a one time investment of $300—and it’s an investment that lives on and keeps bringing me customers.”

“Getting 50 to 100 Calls a Day”
“Since I bought one of Phil’s local search reports for Google Places my site is producing off the charts. I used to think that just having a web site was enough and I would get a couple of calls here and there but now with a couple of fast, free and easy techniques and tweaks that Phil showed me I am getting 50 to 100 calls a day. My phone literally rings off the hook! The economy is horrible but I am wringing out every drop and doing better than I did when it was booming thanks to where I show up in the search engines. I highly recommend Phil’s help to everyone that has a business and wants to dramatically reduce advertising costs and increase the volume of calls to your office. It was money well spent! Thanks Phil!
“PS I get an email every week or so from Phil with suggestions and advice. I follow it to the T. He helps me keep my Google Places page at the top of my Priority List and at the top of Google.”
