So, You Want to Start a Small Business in Pittsburgh

Before You Can Start a Business, You Need to Know a Few Things

A local business has advantages and disadvantages when it comes to marketing - we help you understand both and how to use them to your advantage. For business starting out, coaching is an effective way of developing the strategy that you need to be successful.

Online Directories

In our years of helping businesses to grow, get more clients, and bring more money and freedom to their owners, we’ve often been asked, “Why doesn’t my local business show up on Google?” There are several reasons why this might happen – check and see if any of them apply to you.

Local Content

Struggling to rank highly in local SEO results? The problem may be your content - your lack of local content that is! To rank at the top, you need to think of yourself as the solution provider. And the solution you’re providing? Great content that answers search queries, of course, and that’s the key to local content marketing.

Online Reviews

If you’ve been trying to increase your search engine rankings, get more clients, attract more referral partners, or otherwise grow your business, getting online reviews is one of the most important steps you can take. But getting those reviews can be a challenge, especially if your clients are busy.

Business Networking

Why do business owners struggle to create strategic referral partnerships? Often, it’s because they don’t account for the biggest paradox in networking: most people go to networking events looking to make money and get referrals, not to make purchases or give referrals.
