Herndon, VA (PRWEB) August 22, 2012
Surefire Social®, creator of end-to-end local digital marketing solutions that helps businesses become more visible in search and discovery, announced today they acquired BringMeMyLeads for an undisclosed price. This deal combines two leading companies providing local digital marketing solutions to a variety of small businesses across North America. Importantly, the combined client relationships create a market leader in the $350 billion home improvement industry.
“Surefire Social® is growing rapidly and this acquisition allows us to add talented executives, expand and solidify services and increase our client base” said Chris Marentis, Founder and CEO of Surefire Social®. Leveraging its successful formula in the home improvement industry, the company has aggressive plans to expand into other local verticals including medical practices, mortgage and real estate, legal, office services and automotive. “We are positioning the company for the next stage of growth and this acquisition, combined with new technology we are launching, sets the stage”.
As part of the acquisition, BringMeMyLeads founder and CEO George Faerber will join Surefire Social® as an investor and advisor for the company. Other staff members will also join Surefire Social® in sales and operations.
Faerber started BringMeMyLeads to replicate the marketing success he directed for his 25-year old home improvement business. Faerber is a sought-after speaker and consultant for other home services entrepreneurs, as more than 30% of his company’s revenue stems from Internet-generated leads.
“Our approach of personalized, comprehensive local digital marketing solutions is exactly what Surefire Social® is all about” said George Faerber. “Putting these companies together gives us the ability to strengthen our services and help local businesses of any size. We felt that Surefire Social® was the right partner to take what we’ve built and expand it not just within the home services sector, but also to apply it to other verticals”.
