NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Josh Gardner is an Internet marking specialist that guarantees results. Search results such as getting your company to the top or near the top of Google.
"People have changed the way they find new companies to buy from," said Gardner.
Finger that use to do the walking through the yellow pages, now just do a little typing.
"If your ad is not right there or your website is not listed at that moment your competitor gets the business," Gardner explained.
So Chris Roberts, a printer, said he hired Gardner, and within a few months his print shop came up as one of the top results for business cards, wedding invitations, and other terms they figured customers would use to search for a printer.
"It was really something we had a tremendous amount of skepticism about initially. And it really blew away our expectations," said Roberts.
Roberts said it has increased business by 10 or 15 percent.
So much so that for a period he had to turn his online listing off. Business has been so good for Roberts that he has other printers offering to buy his website.
