SEO Company in Myrtle Beach 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 The bad news is, many “SEO agencies” offering such services provide clients with outdated, a la carte options at ridiculous prices – and good luck getting them on the phone if you have a question that needs answering.

Unlike some of our competitors, mediocre customer service and ineffective digital marketing strategies aren’t in our digital DNA.

Our innovative, all-inclusive SEO patented technology and 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.

Online Review Management

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.

OrthoSC torpedoed residency program to maintain Myrtle Beach monopoly, lawsuit alleges

A potentially prosperous orthopedic surgery residency program was shut down due to threats by a group of Myrtle Beach-area doctors who “did not want to be training their competition,” according to the former director of that program.

Dr. Scott Duncan, a longtime orthopedic surgeon who was tasked with starting the graduate medical education program at Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, filed a lawsuit last week against his now-former employer and OrthoSC alleging illegal interference and civil conspiracy, among other claims.

HCA Healthcare, the parent company of Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, recruited Duncan in 2017 from Boston, Massachusetts, where he was serving as chairman of the orthopedic surgery department for Boston Medical Center, to start and serve as director of a new residency program, the suit states.

They promised Duncan could serve as director at least five years with an extension likely if the program was successfully implemented, and the two sides agreed to work together to persuade OrthoSC to provide doctors to serve as staff for the program, according to the complaint.

OrthoSC represents a contingent of at least 30 doctors in the Myrtle Beach, Conway and Murrells Inlet markets that specialize in orthopedic surgeries and treatment, and its members have surgical affiliations with Grand Strand Regional Medical Center, according to its website.

When Duncan felt that conversations with representatives from OrthoSC indicated they weren’t interested in 2018, he began interviewing other candidates, as HCA had agreed to hire its own staff for the program if OrthoSC wasn’t interested, the suit states.

But after OrthoSC was given a deadline to decide, one of its executive board members, Dr. Gene Massey, sent an email to the president of HCA’s Southeast Atlantic division threatening to pull all of their surgical cases from Grand Strand Regional Medical Center to one of their competitor’s hospitals if the residency program continued, Duncan alleges.

“Massey also stated and represented to (the HCA division president) words to the effect that Defendant OrthoSC and its member doctors ‘did not want to be training their competition’ and that the GME program threatened Defendant OrthoSC’s monopoly in the relevant market in Myrtle Beach, Conway, and Murrells Inlet,” the complaint reads.

As a result of those threats, HCA canceled the residency program and terminated Duncan without cause in April, prior to conclusion of the five years promised in his employment agreement, according to the suit.

Duncan, who did not respond to an interview request, is seeking unspecified financial damages. Massey and OrthoSC could not be reached prior to publication.

Katie Maclay, a spokeswoman for Grand Strand Health, responded that they are aware of the lawsuit but declined to comment on the allegations.

Long known as a summer tourism destination, Myrtle Beach might not be the first place that comes to mind when you think about wintry fun.

This year, the city and local chamber of commerce are trying to change that. Myrtle Beach’s first “Winter Wonderland at The Beach” festival opens Friday, the day after Thanksgiving.

The event features an outdoor ice-skating rink and a walk-through light show.

This region doesn’t get snow like the northeast — so why not bring the frosty fun directly to the people?

“We’ve had many requests for ice skating and are happy to provide an outdoor rink this winter for the whole family to enjoy,” Myrtle Beach mayor Brenda Bethune said in a press release announcing the event. “It’s a must-do destination for our winter vacationers, who enjoy Myrtle Beach in the off-season, and a great activity for local residents. Real ice, right on the Boulevard, will be real nice, especially with the light show for that special holiday flare. Many thanks to the business community for making this possible.”

“Here at the beach, we swap the snow for sand and icicles for seashells — and we couldn’t be merrier about it,” the chamber’s holiday guide says.

Winter Wonderland is located downtown right next to the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk, in between Ocean Boulevard and Highway 17 Business. It runs from Nov. 26 to Jan. 2 and is closed on Christmas.

Winter Wonderland at The Beach tickets are available at the gate: $7 for adults, $5 for kids aged 5-12 and those 4 and under get free admission. Ice skating costs $20 with a skate rental or $15 if you bring your own. The festival runs seven days a week — 3-9 p.m. on weekdays and noon to 10 p.m. on weekends.

“Myrtle Beach is the place to be for families who are looking to get away this winter and incorporate a new tradition into their holiday plans during this unconventional year,” chamber CEO Karen Riordan said in a press release. “All along the Grand Strand, visitors will find glittering light shows, events and performances to make this an exceptional holiday season that will undoubtedly become an annual tradition.”

Last month, Travel + Leisure magazine named Myrtle Beach as one of its “25 Festive Christmas Towns to Visit for the Holidays.”

The Winter Wonderland festival arrives as Myrtle Beach expects one of its strongest years for off-season travel, according to booking data tracked by the chamber. Expedia announced earlier this fall that Myrtle Beach was the No. 7 top destination to visit for Thanksgiving. And at the end of October, the chamber said vacation rental bookings for the 60 days ahead were higher than usual, nearly 7 percentage points ahead of 2019 and 2 percentage points ahead of 2020.

Need more to do? Here’s some of the other holiday events happening this season, all of which have dates starting in November through end of the year. Full details for them can be found online.

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. (WBTW) — The inaugural “Winter Wonderland at The Beach” opens at 4 p.m. on Friday at the Burroughs & Chapin Pavilion Place in downtown Myrtle Beach.

The monthlong festival centers around a walk-through light show and features an outdoor 3,500-square-foot ice rink.

The festival is the first of its kind in the city of Myrtle Beach.

“I think this experience actually accentuates some of the other events in the area,” Mayor Brenda Bethune said. “I think that when we look at the events that are in the area, Brookgreen Gardens’ Nights of a Thousand Candles, this just gives people one more thing to do during the holidays.”

Bethune said she expects the festival to draw out-of-town visitors and locals alike to the city’s downtown area, benefitting local businesses.

“This is a gift that we can give our residents, something fun to do during the holidays,” she said. “But it’s also great for our business community and for our visitors.”

Bethune said the city plans to work each year to make “Winter Wonderland at The Beach” bigger and bigger every year.

“This is our starter year,” Bethune said. “We are excited about it, but it’s something that we want to help increase and grow each year to give people something new to come see.”

Victor Shamah owns Duffy’s and The Bowery across the street from the site of the festival. He said he’s been pushing for a winter attraction in Myrtle Beach for years.

“Oh, I’m pretty excited about it because, like I said before, it’s the shoulder season and we try anything here to increase business here in the downtown area,” Shamah said.

Shamah hopes the festival becomes a long-term success.

“With the right sponsorship, and the right people, and the right activity here, this neighborhood will grow into and be a year-round neighborhood,” Shamah said.

Information on hours and pricing is here. The city of Myrtle Beach is looking for volunteers, who can apply here.
