Ali Walker had ZERO clients.

None. Zip. Nada.

Ali was a brand new family law attorney in El Paso, Texas…and she had no idea how to build her client base.

El Paso has a population of over 700,000 people, and there are hundreds of other law firms in town. There are a lot of lawyers competing for the same clients, and Ali had no idea how to get noticed.

Day after day, Ali sat in her office, brainstorming ideas for trying to get her first clients, and desperately hoping the phone would start to ring.

After a few months, Ali was up to her neck in bills. She knew if she couldn’t find a consistent way to bring in clients, she might need to close up shop for good.

But right around that time, Ali had an epiphany.

Ali realized that if she could get her family law practice to come up on the first page in Google when local residents searched for family lawyers in El Paso, she could bring in a consistent stream of clients for her business.

After the realization, she threw all her efforts into learning everything she could about search engine optimization for local businesses, and she worked hard every week to raise her rankings.

And Ali’s SEO efforts made all the difference.

In just three months, Ali’s law office was showing up on the first page of Google when people searched for family lawyers in her area.

When that happened, the phone started to ring, and customers were lining up to work with Ali.

She went from staring at her office phone and hoping it would ring, to needing to hire a secretary to handle all the calls that were coming into her office every day.

Now, Ali’s business website outranks many law firms in El Paso that have been in business for many years – and she’s generating tens of thousands of dollars in revenue every month.

And she’s bringing in all all those sales without having to pay a dime for pay-per-click advertising, Facebook ads, or commercials.

If You’re Struggling to Get Customers as a Local Business, You’re Not Alone.

Do any of these describe you right now?

  • You’re frustrated because you know you’ve got a great local business, but you don’t have a consistent, reliable way to produce leads and sales.
  • You’re overwhelmed by all the strategies the “experts” tell you to use – and you have no idea which marketing channel to focus on. Should you try to build your Facebook page? Get more Twitter followers? Write tons of blog posts? Try to use Instagram? The options are endless.
  • You believe search engine optimization (SEO) is incredibly difficult, and you don’t have time to learn it on your own.
  • Your competitors are currently ranking above you in the search engines, and they’re grabbing all the free leads and customers associated with those top rankings.
  • You’re relying on paying for traffic (by using Facebook ads, pay-per-click campaigns, or print advertising), or trying to get more business using time-consuming, disheartening tactics like cold calling or knocking on doors.
  • Worst of all, even with the growing sense of overwhelm, the mounting expenses, and the massive frustration – you’re still not bringing in enough clients and customers for your local business.

Maybe you’re considering working with an SEO agency to help you get ranked higher in the search engines….or perhaps you’ve already hired a less-than-reputable agency.

The truth is: SEO agencies seem like they might be able to help you get ranked higher in the search engines, but they can be incredibly expensive.

Often, these agencies don’t do a good job of explaining what they’re doing, or how their methods can actually help you reach the top positions in the search rankings. You often hand over a chunk of money each month, and you’re not actually sure what you’re paying for.

Worse yet – these agencies don’t seem to get you real results. Even after paying for months of SEO services, your company might still be stuck on the second page of the search results, where no one ever sees your listing at all.

Bottom line: The phone doesn’t ring, your dreams of search engine dominance are dashed, and you feel like you’re all the way back at square one.

The Good News Is: There Is Hope.

Trying to get customers as a local business can be lonely and frustrating – but there is another way.

Imagine what it would feel like if you could:

  • Have a consistent stream of new leads and clients coming in every single week.
  • Attract consistent, free traffic to your website each month.
  • Rank higher than your competitors in the search rankings – and receive all the customer calls that are currently going to those companies.
  • Know exactly where you should be focusing when it comes to your online strategy, and put your time and energy into steps that will actually raise your search engine rankings.
  • Understand how to do search engine optimization on your own, so you don’t need to keep paying an SEO agency hundreds of dollars every month.
  • If you do want to hire an agency, you’ll be able to manage that agency properly.
  • Stop trying to build a presence on channels (like Facebook, Instagram, or Pinterest) that aren’t bringing any leads for your local business.
  • Answer calls from new prospective clients every day – because your phone rings constantly, all week long.

These things are possible – even if you don’t currently know anything about SEO.

There are local businesses all over the world that are using smart SEO strategies to rank #1 in the search engines for the terms their customers are searching for every day.

Why You Can Trust Us to Help You Get More Prospects and Sales

Matt Lee, Rise Up Local Co-founder
Josh Wynn, Rise Up Local Co-founder

Our names are Matt Lee and Josh Wynn, and we are search engine optimization experts who specialize in working with local businesses.

In 2012, we started a local SEO consulting agency to help small business owners get more clients by getting found more often in search.

We’ll be honest: At first, we had some trouble helping our clients. We read all the top SEO books, and we tried the techniques recommended by reputable industry experts…but those strategies just weren’t working.

We knew our clients deserved better – and that is was totally possible to improve their rankings and help them start getting consistent leads through the search engines.

So we hunkered down for the next year, doing our own experiments and testing every technique we possibly could. We were like the mad scientist lab of SEO techniques.

After a full year of searching, experimenting, and testing, we had a breakthrough.

We threw out everything that didn’t work for local SEO – even the techniques some of the big search engine optimization experts recommended at the time – and developed our own successful step-by-step local SEO blueprint that will work in absolutely any industry.

Yep, that means it works with:

  • Plumbers
  • Housecleaners
  • Attorneys
  • Roofers
  • Chiropractors
  • Doctors and dentists
  • Remodelers
  • Electricians
  • Auto repair shops
  • Restaurants
  • Limousine rental companies
  • Accountants
  • Banks
  • Franchises
  • Cleaning companies
  • Landscapers

We could go on, but you get the point…we really mean it when we say it works in ANY industry.

Once we had a blueprint that worked for local SEO, our business exploded – and before long, we had more clients than we could handle. We also noticed that some businesses couldn’t afford our services.

There just weren’t enough hours in the day to help all the local small businesses who needed to improve their rankings.

Many of these business were fed up with paying thousands to other SEO agencies, and not seeing any real results.

We Knew We Had to Figure Out a Way to Help More Businesses

Now we had a system that could change the lives of millions of small business owners. We just needed to get that system into the hands of more people.

We kicked off our expansion efforts by offering private coaching sessions, so we could teach people who wanted to learn how to implement our system…but again, we simply didn’t have enough hours in the day to help everyone we wanted to help.

So we created an online course, to try to get the system in the hands of as many people. In the course, we used bite-sized, self-paced video lessons to walk people through the process of improving their search engine rankings.

In the first private pilot round of our course, our students were WILDLY successful.

Check out some of these amazing stories:

John Anderson’s company, Severe Weather Roofing in Fort Collins, Colorado, was already very successful when he joined our pilot program. He had the #7 spot in Google when people searched for roofers in his area, so he did get some customers from the search engines.

But he wanted to grow his business, and establish a more consistent stream of leads for his company. He had already tried pay-per-click ads, social media marketing, direct mail – he even knocked on people’s door for a while, to market his services.

After implementing the strategies he learned in Rise Up Local, he got his company into the #1 spot in Google’s search engine results.

Better search engine rankings transformed John’s business, and now he brings in clients consistently, without having to pay for ad campaigns, knock on doors, or cold-call people.

The difference between ranking #7 in Google and ranking #1 added up to an additional $20,000 per week for John’s business.

Todd Tenge, a personal injury attorney in Colorado, was spending a whopping $4,000 a month with a big SEO agency when he first signed up for our course – but even after a full year, that agency still hadn’t improved his position in the search engines. He was still stuck on page 9 in the results for his target keywords.

He had his paralegal take our course and implement our step-by-step system, and six months later he is now positioned high on the first page in the cities of Boulder and Fort Collins. He went from zero online leads a month to over 50 a month – and his business is booming.

Adam Winters is a real estate investor who also struggled with a previous SEO agency. He joined our pilot program, and within 5 months he had gotten his brand new real estate website ranked on the first page of search engine results in the Houston, Texas area. He’s now expanding his operations into new geographic markets.

Now we’re delighted to be able to launch our local search engine course to the public, and put these hard-won, tested techniques directly into your hands.

The Biggest Myths About Search Engine Optimization (SEO)

Myth #1: “Only the experts at the search engine optimization agencies can help me rank higher in search….it’s not something I can learn to do on my own.”

We’ve worked with some of the top SEO agencies in the country. I know this sounds difficult to believe, but there is absolutely NOTHING magical going on behind the scenes at these companies.

No pixie dust. No secret “Google juju” sauce.

Everything they do behind the doors of big, expensive SEO agencies, you can learn to successfully on your own. Honest.

SEO agencies do a great job of locking you into long term contracts – and many of them never deliver on their big promises. Agencies also don’t always have your best interests in mind, and they may actually be favoring their other clients behind the scenes!

The trouble is – you’re just forking over your payment every month, without any real idea of what they’re doing for you.

Sometimes, working with an SEO agency can do your business more harm than good. Greg Macchia, the owner of a cleaning business in Colorado, worked with an SEO company that used spammy, “black hat” tactics. The agency got him zero results, and their unethical tactics actually dropped his search engine rankings even further than they were when he started working with them.

Learning to improve about local SEO gives you the power to improve your rankings all on your own. After all, no one cares about your business as much as you do, and no one else will fight for higher rankings the way you can.

Even if you decide down the road that you’d like to outsource your SEO efforts, knowing how to improve your rankings yourself will help you manage an agency better. You can make sure you don’t get burned by unscrupulous companies, and you’ll be able to guide whatever agency you work with and hold them accountable, so you can get better results.

Myth #2: “There are better ways of finding leads as a local business than focusing on search. Shouldn’t I be marketing on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or my blog?”

Actually, search engine optimization is the only way to consistently acquire more leads and customers for free.

It’s the best marketing channel for local businesses today, because when you focus on SEO, you are targeting active searchers who are ready to buy – instead of interrupting people with annoying ads.

Myth #3: “I can’t learn SEO. I don’t know how to code, and I have ZERO technical skills.”

Absolutely anyone can learn search engine optimization, even if you’re not technical, and even if technology scares the heck out of you!

Dane Kolbaba, the owner of a Denver party bus and limousine company, considered himself completely “tech illiterate” before taking our search engine optimization course. Dane had ZERO technical skills, but he was still able to easily implement the SEO blueprint laid out in our course.

Within six months, Dane was able to get his company ranked in the top 3 positions in Google for all of his targeted keywords – which lead to a 400% increase in traffic, leads, and sales. Now, his company is attracting tens of thousands of dollars in additional revenue – and he’s bringing in all those leads for free.

Myth #4: “Doing my own search engine optimization is going to take forever!”

We get it. You’re a busy business owner, and time is tight. You can’t afford to spend half your day sitting in front of computer.

The good news is:

When you have the right strategy, you can implement your search engine optimization strategy in only 3 to 5 hours a week.

Remember Greg Macchia, the owner of the cleaning business who ended up ranking lower in the search engines after he was penalized for the spammy, black-hat tactics his SEO company used?

Greg signed up for our pilot program, and implemented our local SEO strategies while running his cleaning business in two locations, and managing over 30 employees.

Despite the limited amount of time he had to dedicate to the course, Greg was able to move his business from page 3 to page 1 in Google, and he increased his traffic and leads by 50%.

Now, Greg gets leads and sales on autopilot. He has completely transformed his business, and he’s in the process of opening up several new locations.

Improving your search engines is possible – and you don’t have to work full-time at it to see extraordinary results.

The Real Secrets to Getting Ranked High in the Search Engines as a Local Business

Okay, here’s where we’ve got to have a heart-to-heart with you.

We think you deserve to hear the truth, even if it’s a little hard to hear – so here are the cold, hard facts about local SEO:

  • Half of all Google Searches have local Intent. People are looking for local resources in Google when they go online.
  • The difference between a 1st page ranking and a 2nd page ranking is tens of thousands of dollars in lost revenue every year.
  • Local SEO isn’t going anywhere. It’s growing by XX percentage each year.
  • Over 60% of all search traffic goes to the top 3 positions in Google search. If you’re lower than third position in Google for the terms your customers are searching for, you’re losing out on a lot of prospects and sales.
  • 75% of consumers never go past page one of the search results when they’re doing online searches. If you’re on page two, you’re in the dreaded “No Man’s Land” of local search, and you may as well be on page 100.

What do all these statistics mean?

If you’re not ranking at the top of page one when your customers search for your services in your area, you’re missing out on tens of thousands of dollars every year – and that situation is not going to change any time soon.

So, how do you rank high in the search engines, so your potential clients can find you?

Secret #1: Focus on getting your local business ranked in the search engines.

I know you feel pulled in a hundred different directions when it comes to online marketing. Experts all over the web are telling you to start a podcast, focus on Pinterest marketing, or buy pay-per-click ads.

But the truth is, 93% of online experiences begin with entering a keyword search into a search engine. Google is where we go for information, and it’s the first place we check when we’re looking for local businesses like yours.

People don’t go to Facebook looking for things like legal services, home improvement contractors, or health care providers – they go to the search engines.

So your focus needs to be on getting ranked higher in Google – and you need to use SEO strategies that work for local businesses.

After all, the strategies that work for nationwide businesses or bloggers won’t work for you. You must use a system that is specifically designed for local search.

Secret #2: Build incoming links (or “backlinks”) to your site by creating linkable assets.

Want to know what can really improve your search engine rankings?

Getting Incoming links to your site.

When another site links to your content, that’s an “incoming link” or a “backlink” to you – and Google sees that link as a big thumbs-up for your website.

According to the Google algorithm, if other people link to you, that must mean you know what you’re talking about…and over time, they will reward you for those backlinks by improving your position in the search engine results pages.

When it comes to SEO, 80% of your efforts should be focused on link building (trying to get more people to link to you).

But you’re not just looking for any old links – you need to focus on proven local link building strategies that will help, not harm, your rankings.

And one of the very best ways to get high-quality backlinks is to create linkable assets on your website.

A linkable asset is a piece of content (like a useful infographic, outstanding article, or top-quality video) that people really want to consume, share on social media, and link to.

Many local businesses publish teeny little blog posts on their sites because they’ve been told they need to blog on a regular basis – but that’s not necessarily the best way to improve your rankings.

Mediocre content isn’t going to cut it for local search. Unfortunately, you’re simply wasting your time if you’re publishing fluffy, 500-word blog posts twice a week, just to satisfy some checklist about what you “should” be doing to market your business.

Instead, you should put your efforts into creating high-quality linkable assets that will help you build incoming links. When it comes to your content, you must emphasize quality over quantity.

You can attract more backlinks with one piece of incredible content than with 20 uninspired blog posts – and those incoming links are what’s going to help you get to #1 in the search engines for your targeted keywords.

Secret #3: Optimize your website for the right keywords.

A lot of local businesses owners think they know which keywords their prospects are searching for – but they might actually be making wrong assumptions.

For example, when someone needs a professional organizer in Philadelphia, are they searching for the term “organizer Philadelphia” or “professional organizing services Philadelphia”?

Before you optimize your local business’s website for the search engines, you need to know exact what keywords your potential customers are typing into Google.

You can’t assume…you need to do the research and find out the most profitable keywords for your niche.

A wrong assumption in this case could lead to thousands of dollars going to your competitors, instead of you – so it’s critical that you get this part of the search engine optimization process right. That’s the third local SEO secret.

Now that you know the “secrets” behind search engine optimization for local businesses, you’re probably wondering…

How Do I Actually Get on the First Page of Google, and Start Bringing in Leads from Search?

The way we see it, you’ve got three options:

Option #1: You Could Try To Figure It Out On Your Own

If you want to manage your own search engine optimization efforts, there are plenty of online resources available for help you learn.

The problem is, much of the online advice about search engine optimization is confusing and contradictory – and most of it doesn’t apply to local small businesses.

Online SEO experts will advise you to publish a new blog post every day…or stuff your web pages full of hundreds of keywords…or worse.

These tactics don’t work, even if you did have the time to implement them.

So, what else can you do?

Option #2: You Could Hire An Agency To Do It For You

You can hire agencies to manage all your search engine optimization efforts for you, but that doesn’t already mean you’ll get the results you want.

SEO companies don’t always have your back, and they can often charge you thousands of dollars a year for the services.

And unfortunately, you aren’t always sure what you’re paying for when you hand over your payment every month….and the results are far from guaranteed.

That brings us to your last option…

Option #3: Invest in a comprehensive training that gives you a step-by-step SEO blueprint.

An online course will give you a simple, easy-to-implement system that you can implement on your own.

…and that’s exactly what Rise Up Local is all about. It’s an end-to-end training that walks you through how to get your local business ranked in the search engines for the search terms you’re customers are searching for, right now.

And you can get this course for a fraction of the price of hiring an SEO agency.

“Good things happen when you show up #1…”

Epic Adventures use to host the most amazing summer camp programs that no one knew about! It was frustrating to see our competitors sell out of their programs year after year as we struggled to get awareness only because they ranked high on the first page of Google. That all changed after we purchased the Rise Up Local course. We used the SEO strategies from the course to rank on the first page of Google for over 45 keywords. The results were incredible. We had over 120 campers sign up compared to only 30 last year. Good things happen when you show up #1 in the Google search results. I highly recommend this course!

“I’m saving $20,000!”

I have my website on the first page and it’s actually in the first three slots on Google. I’m not paying for pay per click anymore, so I’m saving $20,000! So right there I’ve made my money back just by buying this course. I can expand to more sites and can do whatever I want because I feel like I’m expert on SEO now.

I’m very happy and very pleased. I would do this again! And for any small business owner I would recommend this course. It will change your life. It will change your business.

But don’t take our word for it…see for yourself. Here’s what the students from the pilot round of Rise Up Local had to say about the program:

Pete Averson

Pete Averson
Founder of Boulder Commercial Real Estate

“The leads are pouring in everyday now.”

The results speak for themselves. Just search for the keyword “boulder commercial real estate” in Google and you’ll find my business at the top of page one in the map listings and very high up on the organic search results. The leads are pouring in everyday now. This course helped me even the playing field against larger competitors. Thanks so much Josh and Matt! What an outstanding course.

Thomas Ingle

Thomas Ingle
Founder of Apartment Pros

“…we are now getting 60 to 70 more leads each month.”

This course has completely changed the way we think about marketing and lead generation for our business. Over the last two years we hired 3 SEO agencies before finally throwing in the towel on SEO. These companies were taking our money each month, but were not delivering on their promise of higher rankings. I was skeptical when we were first introduced to the Rise Up Local course because I thought SEO was something that only highly skilled SEO companies could do. The Rise Up Local course was super easy to follow and understand even for a non-technical person like me. After implementing the strategies from the course we are now getting 60 to 70 more leads each month. This puts us on track to increase revenue by 40% while decreasing our advertising costs by over 70%.

“We’re getting about 7-10 phone calls a day.”

We’ve implemented all of the strategies and I am now on the first page of Google! We’re getting about 7-10 phone calls a day. It’s really fun and exciting as a business owner to go into the office on a daily basis and hear those phone calls come in and know that they are a direct result of all of the strategies that we’ve implemented from the course.

This course has dramatically transformed my business and I would highly recommend it to any local business owner trying to grow their business!

Frequently Asked Questions

Got questions about Rise Up Local? We address the most common questions below. If you have additional questions, feel free to contact our support team at [email protected]

1. Does your course work in competitive industries like personal injury, real estate, and home improvement, financial services, and medical practices?

Yes, absolutely! We’ve tested all of our methods thoroughly, and they are proven to work in all industries – even very competitive ones like personal injury, real estate, home improvement, etc.

If you’re still on the fence, remember that you can try our course completely risk with our hassle free, 30-day guarantee.

2. Does your course work for franchises or large companies with 10’s, 100’s or even 1000’s of locations?

Local SEO can be tricky for these types of companies, but yes – the strategies in this course work beautifully for franchises or companies with hundreds (or even thousands) of locations. We even have special training for multi-location companies within the course. That training reveals exactly how to set up your local SEO strategy when you’re got a multi-location business.

3. How long will it take me to complete the coursework?

You’ll get all the training modules right away when you sign up today, so you can work through the materials at your own pace, and on your own schedule.

Once you’re done with the course and you’re ready to start implementing the strategies, you can implement your search engine optimization strategy in only 3 to 5 hours a week.

4. How long will it take to see results?

How long it will take you to see results really depends on your industry and location.

However, we will say that many of our students have seen life-changing results within months of taking our course – and they have seen those results much faster than when they’ve worked with their previous SEO agencies.

5. Will this course continue to be updated? If so, will I get free access?

Google regularly does updates so they can fight against spammers and unethical practices, and we’ll update the course whenever there’s a major update. You’ll get access to all of those updates for free when you sign up for Rise Up Local.

6. Will this work for someone that doesn’t have a lot of technical experience?

Absolutely! We welcome folks who aren’t technical wizards!

We’ve had a number of students who said they had “zero technical skills,” and they were able to implement the strategies in the course and get great results for their businesses.

7. Money is very tight. How can I afford this?

As a business owner, only you can answer this – but there are times when you need to invest in your business so it can grow (or in some cases, just so it can stay afloat!)

We feel that SEO is the single greatest sales and marketing channel for local businesses, so we have full confidence that you’ll see a huge return on your investment if you take the time to implement the course blueprint.

If you don’t see results, we feel like we don’t deserve your money, and we will gladly give you a refund.

8. Will this course really teach me everything I need to know to achieve a first page ranking in the search engines?

Yes – we leave no stone unturned. This course is the most complete and updated local SEO course on the market today.

If you are willing to put the work in, you will achieve a first page ranking and enjoy all of the rewards associated with that position. That means more leads, sales, and revenue for your business, day after day and week after week.
