There is a very real issue of trust in the marketplace, with many of our members having been taken advantage of in the past by marketing services that weren't a good investment or turned out to be scams.
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 06, 2014
There are a lot of online marketing services for local businesses to choose from these days. However, many local businesses don't have the time or expertise to decipher these numerous options - nor do they often have the budget to pay for expensive marketing services.
To make matters worse, there are countless marketing companies calling on these businesses every day with aggressive sales pitches and lofty promises. In fact, it was recently estimated that 75% of small businesses are contacted at least once a week by an online marketing company.
Growthpoint hopes to make the process of selecting reputable marketing services easier for its members by adding a variety of additional service offerings to its membership program. All services are offered to members at a 25-50% discount and include:
- Business listing management in over 50 of the most important local online directories
- Comprehensive search engine optimization to improve visibility in Google and other search engines
- Managed Facebook advertising campaigns to generate new leads and customers
- Content creation to reduce the time spent maintaining inbound marketing strategies
- Website development, with an emphasis on responsive design and SEO best practices
"What our members appreciate most about our program is having a single marketing partner that they can rely on," says Justin Fauci, co-founder of Growthpoint. "There is a very real issue of trust in the marketplace, with many of our members having been taken advantage of in the past by marketing services that weren't a good investment or turned out to be scams."
"We're very excited to help clear up a lot of this confusion for our members, offering them marketing services that have been carefully vetted and at a significant discount to what they'd have to pay elsewhere."
