With more than six years in my field, I'm a student and a teacher on all topics related to it. My peers respect my advice, some call me an expert. I've built a successful agency offering comprehensive digital marketing services.
This time, I want to help small business by providing affordable services and sticking around for the long term. So I'm using the best of what I've learned, and the best tools, to provide small businesses with the opportunities of the big guys.
This is not about the big accounts. No problem with those, but I'm for the real small businesses. The mom-and-pop local retailer. The electrician. The artist. The food truck. The dentist. The small local chain of cleaners. The little spa. The bed and breakfast. You get the idea.
On that mission, I'm building Ally Digital.
But I can't do this alone. I've been blessed with many friends and professional acquaintances from all walks of life. And many ask me how they can help. That's easy. Please tell a business owner about this.
Tell them Ally Digital offers affordable subscription-based internet marketing services.
Tell them about Ally Local, probably the most important service they're missing. It's a combination of Local SEO (local search engine optimization), Directory Business Listings, and Social Media and Reviews (Reputation) Management tools for local retail and service area businesses.
Ally Local is particularly helpful to retail businesses (those that benefit from walk-in traffic, like stores, restaurants, automotive service, cleaners, dentists, chiropractors, spas, etc.) and service-area businesses (like electricians, plumbers). ($75/mo.)
Tell them about Ally Sites, the last website they'll ever need.
Ally Sites – Affordable, agency-quality small business website design, development, hosting, and support, as a subscription service. ($95/mo.)
