Advanced E-commerce Search Engine Optimization

Small Business Local Organic Search and Google My Business Services

46% of searches are done locally

True Success Story: In 2009, the economy crashed. No one was buying cars. My client, Tony Terraciano invented window tinting for cars back in 1976. However, he worked exclusively with car dealerships. The short story is that Tony was out of work with no website, no social media, no reputation, and no clients.

We put together an online strategy that took Tony to the top of Google within 5 months. We began with a new website, paid Google ads (short-term) and then rocked out the local search by building a reputation online, and added a Google My Business profile.

Tony reached maximum capacity within 5 months. The strategy produced a robust new website, great organic results, and excellent reviews on GMB, which brought in new customers by the droves. As a result, Chevrolet called about a new advertising campaign for the Chevy Cruze. They needed help from an experienced professional and found Tints Unlimited on the web.

After two of the cars were tinted, the ad campaign began. Chevy displayed the cars on billboards and commercials all around the Chicago area. We documented the entire process, along with the billboards and T.V. Ads and posted them on the site. This led to more recognition and more customers for Tony.

We eventually stopped the paid ads, since local organic search and GMB profile filled in the gap. After two years, Tony purchased his own building for his business and still has a near-perfect rating of more than 200 reviews on GMB alone - over 10 years later. (see knowledge panel at bottom)
