SEO Company in Daniel Island, SC
If you are a business owner, there's probably a good chance that you have asked yourself this question before. It's a question that many entrepreneurs ask, and for good reason.
According to a recent study, the first five organic search results on Google account for about 67% of all website clicks. With more than 2.3 trillion Google searches in 2019 alone, it has become clear that if customers can't find your website online, you're missing out on a huge opportunity to grow your business.
The good news is, with a trustworthy SEO company in Charleston on your side and an effective SEO campaign, your website can show up on the first page of a Google search. The bad news is, many "SEO agencies" offering such services provide clients with outdated, a la carte options at ridiculous prices - and good luck getting them on the phone if you have a question that needs answering.

What local SEO services in Daniel Island can you expect? Keep reading to find out.
Comprehensive Link Building
Most veteran SEO professionals agree that one of the most important signals that Google uses to rank websites is backlinks. Backlinking is essentially a link that is created when one website links to another. According to recent statistics, 91% of webpages that don't get organic traffic are because they don't have any backlinks. Mr. Marketing solves this problem for you through comprehensive backlinking techniques, which adds authority to your website over time so that Google recognizes your website as trustworthy in your industry.
Online Review Management
Positive online reviews can be incredibly beneficial for your business. 93% of online shoppers say that online reviews play a part in their purchasing decisions. The problem is, many business owners don't have the time to request online reviews from happy clients, manage those reviews, or display them on their company's website.
That's where Mr. Marketing's Review Manager comes in. Review Manager is the world's first comprehensive reputation management system, allowing you to get more from your reviews. With Review Manager, you have the ability to request reviews via SMS and Email, track pending review requests, and even publish your most favorable reviews right to your website, with a few taps on your phone.
As local SEO consultants in Daniel Island, we see a lot of good-looking websites. While a website might be attractive on the surface, it needs to be optimized on the backend for it to have a better chance of showing up in a Google search. Our team of skilled web developers will optimize your website both on the surface and "under the hood", so that your business gets noticed by customers who are already looking for the products or services you sell.
Website Hosting & Updates
To make life a little easier, we are happy to host your website on our servers, so you don't have to hunt down a separate hosting service. If you have updates that need to be applied to your website, we will handle the heavy lifting for you. We even implement security measures to prevent hackers from accessing your data.
Google Ads Management
Here's a fact you might not know - Google controls more about 71% of the search engine market. If you want customers to find your business online, you need to show up in Google searches. As part of a comprehensive digital marketing strategy in Daniel Island available from Mr. Marketing, Google Ads can be an excellent wayfor new clients to discover your business both on mobile devices and on desktops. Much like online reviews, however, managing a Google Ads campaign can be burdensome and time consuming for busy entrepreneurs.

South Carolina isn’t known for her white Christmases, and snowball fights come once in a blue moon. But this December, the Lowcountry can experience a chilly holiday tradition regardless of the temperature with outdoor ice skating at Skate the Stadium.
Skate The Stadium is a new custom-built rink for ice skating at Credit One Stadium in partnership with the Daniel Island Community Fund. Visitors are invited to celebrate the season with skating, cozy fire pits, seasonal concessions and special holiday events.
Outdoor ice skating is hard to come by in the Lowcountry. Ice skaters can get their fix at the Carolina Ice Palace in North Charleston, but the President of Charleston Tennis at Credit One, Bob Moran, wanted to bring the fun outside.
“This just came out of, quite honestly, a brainstorm that we had, thinking about if there’s a possibility of a rink that we could have during the holidays. Lo and behold, we figured out how to do it,” Moran said. “It’s not a true ice rink, but it’s called ‘Glice,’ a synthetic rink, that is absolutely gorgeous out there right now.”
Moran said that the rink is big enough to accommodate 80 skaters at a time. Though not technically real ice — Glice, as it’s called — is made from high-density plastic. The rink is sprayed with lubricants to allow for a smooth glide. Using Glice removes the hassle of keeping a skating rink frozen. There’s less water and energy involved and there’s no need to worry about ice turning to slush when there’s an unseasonably warm day.
Moran said that the Daniel Island Community Fund and Credit One wanted a way to bring special moments to families and create a holiday atmosphere for everyone to enjoy.
“I really believe we’re going to see tons of kids out there and families out there. That was actually very evident. I think we’re over 2,000 reservations within 48 hours or so. The community definitely is excited about it,” Moran said.
The skating rink will open on Dec. 2, and be open Thursday through Sunday until Dec. 30. Tickets are $10 per person, which includes the skate rental and a one-hour skating session. Non-skaters may enter for free and special assistive devices will be on hand for those who need them. Children 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult.
Credit One Stadium is a drop-off site for the Marine Toys for Tots Foundation. Visitors that bring a toy to donate will receive $2 off a skating session. To make a reservation at the rink, visit www.creditonestadium.com/skate-the-stadium/
Holiday festivities and special themed nights, like a 90s Glow Night and Ladies’ Night, are scheduled throughout December, starting with a tree lighting on Dec. 2. A full list of events is as follows:
Daniel Island Tree Lighting Ceremony: Dec. 2; Festivities begin at 5 p.m. with the tree lighting at 6 p.m. Enjoy musical performances from Charleston Concert Band, carolers singing and activities for the children then watch the holiday magic of a 22-foot tree lighting.
Holiday Carolers Thursdays: Dec. 8, 25 and 22; 5:30-6 p.m. Catch the holiday spirit with vocal performances from local high school choral groups.
Ladies Night/Bubbles on Ice: Dec. 8; 7-10 p.m. Nibble on hors d’oeuvres and sip on bubbles from Moet. Browse some curated holiday selection from local vendors. This is a ticketed event, $35 per person and includes food plus a cash bar.
90s Glow Night: Dec. 10; 7-10 p.m. Skate to your favorite songs of the 90s and sport your best glow gear.
Jazz Night & Bourbon Tasting: Dec. 15, 7-10 p.m. Sample all-you-can-eat oysters on the half shell and bourbon tasting with entertainment by Grammy award-winning Charlton Singleton & The Contemporary Flow Band.
Visit with Santa: Dec. 18; 9 a.m.–2 p.m. Stop by for a visit with Santa the last weekend before Christmas.

DANIEL ISLAND — Something happened to me that’s only happened to me at one concert ever before in my life. I cried.
For just a moment, but it happened.
That is what Elton John did to me during his sold-out show at Credit One Stadium on the night of Sept. 13.
It’s weird, because I just saw him in Columbia a few months ago for the first time, which was its own whirlwind emotional experience. But this one actually brought me to tears, a phenomenon I also endured my first time seeing Paul McCartney in Nashville.
Perhaps it’s because I was in middle-of-the-floor seats just 13 rows away from Sir Elton himself, a much closer view than the bird’s eye second-tier chair I had at the Colonial Life Arena.
Or perhaps it was the palpable united energy of the boa-and-sparkle-laden crowd swaying in sync to “Bennie and the Jets.”
Or the projected sentimental videos and old family photographs on the screen that reminded me of my grandparents when they were alive.
Or the fact I went to this show with my mom, who was an integral piece of me growing up on the soundtracks of stars like Elton John, Stevie Nicks and ABBA.
Whatever it was, it was clearly warranted, because I wasn’t the only wet eye in the house.
Elton John, with only a few more months of shows left to play in the United States on his farewell tour, was waving goodbye to first-time fans and hundredth-time fans alike. This was his last show in South Carolina, a state he said he’s played 57 times during his career.
The first time he remembers playing in Charleston is in 1997 at the North Charleston Coliseum. And though the songs he performed then may have been similar — all the hits from “Your Song” to “Rocket Man” to “Candle in the Wind” to “Tiny Dancer” to “Someone Saved My Life Tonight” to “Philadelphia Freedom” to “Crocodile Rock” (need I go on?) — there was a decidedly different mood in the air.
Certainly there was the positive, upbeat energy of his recent hits, like No. 1 single “Cold Heart” with Dua Lipa, one of many ways he has stayed relevant over the decades. (He even gave a nod to his upcoming release with Britney Spears.)
But there was such a bittersweet twinkle in his eye behind his iconic rhinestone sunglasses. (He changed pairs, along with his wardrobe three times during the show.)
When he closed with “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” he added some sentimental thoughts that, though he’s likely said them more than 200 times on this amazingly long tour, still seemed genuine.
“I take you with me in my heart and soul,” he said in his heart-shaped sunglasses and bedazzled blazer. “Be kind to yourselves, and be kind to others.”
At 75 years old and with a whole lifetime of experiences behind him, those words must’ve hit differently. He clearly will miss sharing his gift with the world (his fingers on those piano keys moved in muscle memory like the echo of a dream), but he said it’s time to spend the rest of his days off the road with his own loved ones, his husband and children.
“Thank you Charleston, and goodbye,” Sir Elton said before he gave a final turn from his Yamaha grand and waltzed offstage, his name glistening in silver rhinestones on the back of his floor-length robe.

+ On the homefront: The median price of a house in the Charleston area in July stood at almost $400,000, but where in the growing region can someone find a home for that amount of money? Click here to find out.
+ Inching forward: A divided Charleston County Council is slowly moving ahead with plans to develop affordable housing in a rapidly gentrifying part of the Charleston peninsula on a property that could be worth $30 million if it were sold.
+ Reconnecting: Officials are discussing a plan to stitch Union Heights back together with affordable housing decades after Interstate 26 split the North Charleston neighborhood.
A new 122-unit apartment project is slated to be built at 29-35 George St., where a parking lot now exists behind a block of King Street businesses. Behind the proposed apartments, a new 50-room hotel and 22 condominium units are planned off of Society Street.

A $20-million-plus lodging with a restaurant, event space and guest cottages is being proposed for Daniel Island.
The city of Charleston’s Design Review Board recently signed off on plans for a 38-unit hotel at 1995 Daniel Island Drive near the planned 320-unit Nowell Creek Village Apartments.
The site is across from the former Blackbaud headquarters building, which is now a multitenant office structure called Marshside. The board suggested a few aesthetic revisions, but otherwise unanimously voted for the hotel project.
A small office structure currently occupies the site and can be moved to make way for the new project once it clears other approvals from the city.
JT Industries LLC, an affiliate of developer King and Society Real Estate of Charleston, bought the 1.5-acre parcel near Beresford Creek in 2019 for $1.25 million, according to Berkeley County land records.
“We have a unique and interesting waterfront property on Daniel Island and have been working to find the best use and need for this location,” said King and Society founder and CEO Troy Barber.
He estimated construction will take about 14 months after permits and other approvals are received and hopes the project will be completed in 2024.
Barber said a firm price had not been set on the hotel, but he believes the project will be more than $20 million.
The main 11,200-square-foot building will house guest rooms, restaurant and event space in three floors over parking. The proposal includes four guest houses of 8,500 square feet each, two 866-square-foot cottages, two 592-square-foot cabanas and 50 parking spaces.
The site plan shows the venue as a likely wedding venue, with separate suites for the bride and groom, a ballroom and an outdoor ceremony site overlooking Beresford Creek. Barber said it could also be used for corporate functions.
King and Society will be the developer and handle construction as well, Barber said.
At the mid-year point, South Carolina is home to three of the top-selling 50 master-planned communities in the U.S., even as sales slow from last year.
RCLCO Real Estate Consulting ranked Cane Bay Plantation in Berkeley County at No. 5 with 525 sales during the first six months of 2022. That’s down 9 percent from last year’s midpoint.
Nexton, also in Berkeley, came in at No. 22 with 308 sales, down 5 percent from the first six months of last year.
Latitude Margaritaville in Hardeeville near Hilton Head Island ranked No. 39 with 234 sales, down 29 percent from last year from January through June.
The top-selling, master-planned community continues to be The Villages, between Ocala and Orlando, Fla. It had about 1,500 sales, down 25 percent from last year at the midpoint.
Almost all of the top 50 are in the southern tier of states. Texas posted the most with 20, Florida landed 15, Nevada had four, California and Arizona saw three each, and Utah and Washington state notched one each.
Total new home sales among the 50 top-selling master-planned communities declined by 18 percent in the first half of 2022 compared to the same time period last year, according to RCLCO.
“Supply chain issues and inadequate new home inventory have continued to pose problems for developers, as price increases and interest rate hikes have begun to impact traffic from potential buyers in recent months,” RCLCO said in its mid-year report.
Nationally, the average price among all new single-family homes is up 15 percent since mid-2021.
“The results of this updated mid-year report confirm that supply chain disruptions continue to have an impact on the ability of master-planned communities to meet new home demand, though climbing interest rates and price appreciation have begun to have an impact on that demand, at least in the near-term,” said RCLCO principal Karl Pischke.
“However, it is important not to overreact to the slowing of sales seen over the last year, as these are still short-term trends,” he said.
“The long-term future of the for-sale housing industry, as evidenced by favorable demographic tailwinds, is strong,” Pischke said. “And the future of master-planned communities, particularly in their ability to capture an outsized share of buyer demand during uncertain or difficult economic times, provides another reason for optimism.”
