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 Mount Pleasant 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 The bad news is, many “SEO agencies” offering such services provide clients with outdated, a la carte options at ridiculous prices – and good luck getting them on the phone if you have a question that needs to answering.
Unlike some of our competitors, mediocre customer service and ineffective digital marketing strategiesaren’t in our digital DNA.
Our innovative, all-inclusive SEO services work together to form a digital marketing machine, unlike anything on the market. We call it Local Magic.
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.
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 Mount Pleasant, 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.
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.
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 Mount Pleasant available from Mr. Marketing, Google Ads can be an excellent wayfor new clients to discover your business both on mobile devices and on desktops.

MOUNT PLEASANT, S.C. (WCIV) — It's said that a dog is a man's best friend, and that's certainly the case for Jake O'Connor.
"It was a dream come true. Something about the ocean just called my name my whole childhood," said Jake O'Connor.
In January, Jake, his mother Kristen, and their Annabelle moved to Mount Pleasant to retire.
Jake has Spina Bifida, so he has spent his life in a wheelchair.
So when the family looked for an apartment, they checked to make sure it was handicap friendly.
"It was flat, so he could roll. He could go for walks. And they had a wheelchair accessible on their website. So we chose this one," said Kristen Conner, Jake's mother.
But the family says the apartment has not been ADA compliant.
First, the family says they had to wait 5 months for a handicapped parking space, forcing Jake to park far away.
"There would be days where we would have to park way down at the other end of the complex. And just roll whether it was raining or not," said Jake.
They also claim the apartment would not provide ramps. So the family had to purchase them on their own.
"Jake couldn't get into the apartment. The height was not flat, it was 3 inches. I had to pick up the back of the wheelchair, he had to hop up, then I picked up the back of the wheelchair and set him in," said Kristen.
Now the family said the apartment complex said they have to get rid of their emotional support animal, Annabelle.
She's 4 years old, and came into Jake's life at a crucial moment, he was on hospice.
"For the last 4 years we have been together every day and I couldn't live, you know I couldn't imagine another day without her, " said Jake.
"Annabelle takes her job really seriously. That is protecting and being with Jake," said Kristen.
Jake said he was told by the apartment complex his dog bit someone, but he said it never happened.
We reached out to the apartment, Arium Mount Pleasant.
They said "Our community follows ADA guidelines and the spirit and letter of the fair housing act. Furthermore, the safety and well-being of our residents is and always has been our number one priority. We are looking Into these allegations and take such claims very seriously."
Now Annabelle is with a trainer, while Jake and Kristen wait for what is next. The family is receiving legal help.

MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (WCIV) — A compromise has been reached in the planned restoration of Crab Bank in the Charleston Harbor.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Town of Mount Pleasant announced Thursday all parties involved have agreed to a new plan that will see the restoration project shift its footprint 1,400-feet farther southeast than originally planned, well away from the mouth of busy and important Shem Creek.
The restoration project will see the Army Corps replenishing the Crab Bank bird sanctuary with about 660,000 cubic yards of earth dredged from the floor of the Charleston Harbor as part of the ongoing harbor deepening project.
Originally, the Army Corps suggested depositing the bulk of the dredge spoil at the northwestern edge of the current Crab Bank location, the portion of the bank nearest to the mouth of Shem Creek.
Mount Pleasant town leaders balked at that plan, saying tidal forces were likely to erode the dredge material much more quickly there, and potentially redeposit the earth in problematic locations clogging boating channels, or even linking the tiny island to the mainland.
Such an outcome would have a "devastating" impacts on Crab Bank’s viability as a nesting sanctuary for shore birds, as a link to the mainland would allow predators to easily access the bank and prey on eggs.
Crab Bank has steadily shrunk over many years due to forces of erosion. Conservationists say that has resulted in a steady decline in birds on the bank. The decline was particularly noticeable after Hurricane Matthew in 2016. In 2017, no birds nested on the island at all.
Thus, anything that would further compromise Crab Bank as a potential nesting site must be avoided, critics of the original plan argued.
In the two years since Mount Pleasant officials first raised concerns about the Crab Bank project, the Army Corps, the S.C. Dept. of Natural Resources and even contractors who’ll perform the work have collaborated on alternatives to the original plan.
“We are excited to soon begin this important project for our community,” said Lt. Col. Rachel Honderd, District Commander for the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. “We are pleased we were able to address the concerns of the Town within the existing constraints of the approved project and appreciate the candid communication of our dredging contractor, Norfolk Dredging Company, as we performed our recent assessment.”
Army Corps officials said Thursday they feel the new plan is a win-win for Mount Pleasant and the habitat.
Work is expected to start in September 2021. When it's done, workers will have created about 28 acres of additional nesting habitat for shorebirds on Crab Bank.
“We look forward to the successful completion of this project and to a day in the not-too-distant future when seabirds and shorebirds will return to Crab Bank and visitors will again be able to experience what makes this area so special,” said Robert Boyles, Director of SCDNR.
Mayor Will Haynie, of Mount Pleasant, said, “I would like to thank Lt. Col. Honderd as well as the staff at the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for their work and commitment to the citizens and business owners of Mount Pleasant. I would like to also thank U.S. Sens. Lindsey Graham and Tim Scott, and U.S. Rep. Nancy Mace, for their efforts to achieve an effective solution for all parties.”
