We've just surpassed 4 years of being in business and I wanted to share a few things that I've learned over the last 4 years since moving from corporate to small business.

It's been quite a journey, but I've loved every damn minute of it!

Oh, and we just launched our new site... check it out!

I took the plunge and went into business for myself four years ago, shunning a regular paycheck for the freedom, adventure, and sometimes challenges...

Most business owners know they need online reviews if they want to get more customers. Some of them have actually tried to get happy customers to speak up. Very few get anywhere. Even if the business owner makes a reasonable request at an appropriate time, customers still have to follow through.

I realized something REALLYY weird with this site, mgmcdallas.com a couple weeks ago.

As you can see, the business has a Dallas, TX address and really only services the Dallas/Fort Worth metro.

They recently started getting some of referral traffic from yelp.com/biz_redir. Weirdly, they've also been getting more salespeople (especially the SEO industry) filling out their contact form and call them. He tells me there are almost 20 a day calling him and trying to tell them to hire them for SEO.. he keeps telling them no b/c he has someone local that helps him.

Take January for example, they had 164 sessions and 119 of those were from this yelp referral. They DON'T advertise with Yelp, or get traffic from Yelp anywhere in Texas. You can see from below screenshot that they are all coming from California.

I've had our SEO and developer look into and we can't figure out what's happening. Any thoughts? If someone can help with this, I'd be more than happy to compensate.

It’s March of 2015 and that means it’s time to do some spring cleaning. Every year it seems that the online landscape is changing a little more, and the moving industry is no exception. Just like your customers are evaluating whether they should move this summer, you should take a step back and take a fresh look at your website. If you are a mover in a big city, it’s very likely that you have dozens of competitors. Every little improvement you ca...

Our 1st and only visit so far went great. The place was packed, but we snagged a spot at the bar. The bartender was very friendly and even hooked us up with a special sushi roll since it was our first time. All 3 rolls we ordered were really tasty and the presentation was great.

No issues on my visit. I noticed that all the reviews talked about it taking forever. I was the first patient so no wait. Just schedule yours early in the day and you should be ok.

Patrick's team was incredibly helpful installing a new modern exterior front door on our house in the Lakewood area of Dallas. They were affordable. They reached out to us numerous times to make sure everything went well and we were 100% satisfied. They are the only door company I have dealt with in Dallas, but in my opinion they are the best.
