Before these fine folks stepped in, I didn’t know much about search engine marketing. They built me a website when I didn’t even have one and, bless their hearts, made sure it was in tip-top shape. They worked their magic with that SEO stuff and the Google Business thing, and lo and behold, my store started popping up all over Google Maps. Local folks and tourists started coming in. My little shop ain’t so little anymore. Heck, we’ve got a big ole mall to ourselves in Maggie Valley now, thanks to their hard work. I couldn’t be happier. They really put me on the map, in more ways than one.

Small business owner in a big marketplace here. We have been working with Stone, Pat and Gaby for about 6 months. Their expertise and understanding of search engines and proper website construction has been immensely helpful. We have been very pleased with the performance of our site since they have been working on it. This is a five -star operation. If you have a website that seems to underperform, these folks can fix that!

My local start ( Pat Reuning) created and built an amazing and professional website for my company Signed In Ink, LLC  Mobile Notary Public , on Google business profile. The hard work and accomplishments by Pat -with My local start -did her research , thorough details,  colors, fonts, and really getting into knowing about what and where my business services,  provides, add more. She really dedicated her time and applied everything the website should need for my clients and future customers Q & A’s & more. 

If I could give My Local Start 10 star rating, I would, so I’m going to give it anyways!
