People ask me what tools, services, or professionals I recommend. Here are some that have worked well for me, and that may serve you well, too:
Ahrefs – Super-thorough backlinks analysis. I use it every day. It’s indispensable.
Aweber – The email-management system I’ve used for many years.
Mouseflow – A heatmap tool and a way to watch video replays of visitors’ sessions on your site. I don’t use it on this site, but I use it on some clients’ sites. It can help you figure out how you can get more of your visitors to take the next step.
Whitespark Local Citation Finder – Helps you identify the local directories and other sites where it’s probably worth listing your business. In some cases those are also good review sites and places to get a link, by the way.
Joker Media – WordPress specialists. Josh Benson (owner) and I have worked together on many clients’ projects over the years, and he’s even done work on this site. In addition to building and redesigning sites, Josh offers a dependable and affordable maintenance program for WordPress sites, ADA website compliance, and help on social media.
Pigzilla – Danielle Owens helps me on many projects for clients over the years, and is a smart, experienced, hardworking, and ethical local SEO. She can help on an ongoing or one-off basis, and offers a great local SEO training program (called Bring Home The Bacon).
Jonathan Rozek, my father, is your go-to guy if you need an ace copywriter, someone to ghost-write your book (he’s penned several Amazon Bestsellers), or a conversion-rate optimization expert. He’s been the right-hand man to a real-estate tycoon, a dentist who retired at 40, a billionaire, among others. If your business depends at all on your ability to persuade people, you can call in the artillery.
Whitespark Citation-Building and Citation Audit / Cleanup – These two services are just the ticket if you need help with your local citations. If you sign up for it, please consider using the discount code LVS-WS. You’ll save 10%, and I’ll get 10%. (I recommended Whitespark’s service long before they had an affiliate program.)
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.
