We’ve found that many business websites are built solely to impress the business owner,” says Troy Peterson, co-founder of Localmize, a division of Omaha Marketing Solutions. “All too often, the focus is more on design appeal than building a site that’s effective at attracting new customers.”
So Localmize is a web design firm, yes, but one with the experience to design an attractive site with search engines in mind. “We have extensive background in marketing, user interface design, and search engine optimization,” Peterson explains. “So in every website we design, it’s these key components that drive the development. We’re helping you create not just a website but a revenue-generating or lead-generating machine.”
With clients in over 15 states, Localmize has helped businesses in a variety of industries. Landscapers, attorneys, retirement communities, med spas, and home improvement contractors have all benefited from its SEO expertise. “Our products are unique,” Peterson says, “because they focus on our clients’ overall online presence and getting them found online.” It’s critical, he explains, that local businesses are found accurately whenever and wherever consumers are looking for them. “It is always our goal to improve our clients’ online presence by ensuring their business is represented accurately and consistently.
“We’ve grown pretty organically,” Peterson reflects. “We build trust by delivering results, and that leads to strong relationships and referrals.”
Of course, that growth also has to be due to the hard-working Localmize team. “I’m sure many small business owners would say, ‘We have a small, strong team that works well together and feels like a family,’ so it might seem a little clichéd,” Peterson says, “but honestly it’s rather true.” While each member of the team offers a personal focus on their specific talents, they all rely on each other to make the whole project work. “Our team is friendly, creative, and professional, which is why I think our client relationships are so strong.” But there’s more to retaining clients than just having solid relationships. “We constantly put ourselves in our client’s shoes and solve problems in ways that provide real results. We’re never afraid to prove ourselves to our clients.”
