The Story of Near Me Website Marketing
Our First Small Business
Weâ€™re David & Lynn, the creators of Near Me Website Marketing. Married for 15 years with two amazing kids, we were both raised in Northcentral Missouri. In late 2016, after David served 7 years in the military, we moved back to our home state of Missouri and started our own business â€“ Macomo Kennels & Retrievers. We bought 20 acres of raw land, built our own kennel with some small attached living quarters, and poured our heart and soul into the business. David trained retrievers for waterfowl hunting and competitions and Lynn ran the day-to-day business and boarding operations.
SEO – What is That?
Like most small business owners, we didnâ€™t know very much about SEO or online marketing. Getting a Google Business Listing set up and spending many frustrating hours to try to build a decent-enough website was the best we could do (looking back it was no where decent enough for Google, but we didn’t know that). We knew we needed help but had no clue what we needed for our business and didnâ€™t really have the budget to hire help. Searching online for help just lead to an overflow of information and confusion.
After a lot of searching, we went with a company who said they would make our website better and have us rank higher. Two months and $1000 later, all we had was a website full of broken-grammar descriptions and broken links. Apparently, the company was outsourcing overseas where English was not their first language. We were left to pick up the pieces, fix the errors, and were back at square one.
With the business shutdowns of 2020, and our business barely surviving as it was due to no marketing efforts and still being in our financially-strapped startup years, we were forced to permanently close our doors and sell our business. It was a hard time for our family, but we learned many valuable lessons from the experience.Â
That is why we’re so passionate about helping small business owners succeed! We know the struggles of trying to “get your name out there”, waiting on the phone to ring, not knowing when or what your next payday will be. We work with all small businesses and can customize the right marketing solutions to fit your budget!
