Frequently Asked Questions

Promoting your local business should be a combination of tactics ranging from on-page optimization, do directory listings, positive reviews, social media, fliers, email campaigns, and the list goes on. The key to any campaign is picking the right mix of these channels to target your ideal customer at different points through their day. Consistent reminders of your business will lead to increased sales locally.
There is no contract term for our services. We see ourselves as an extension of your marketing department and you can fire at any time. That said when it comes to SEO and getting momentum with a campaign, that takes the first 90 days typically.

We believe it is unethical to work for two businesses of the same kind in a competing geographic area.  Therefore, our promise is we will only work with one business of a kind in a geographic area, and will refuse work from their competitors as long as we continue work for that business.  It is our exclusive promise.

Empire Sales Consulting is proud to be one of the few marketing companies to offer premium voice search optimization services to our customers.  This allows a business to be at the top (the recommended business), for specific questions customers ask their smart devices.  It’s a business’ first opportunity to show up when someone ASKs Alexa, Google Home, or Siri.

Although almost any business will benefit from local marketing, we have found that service businesses tend to do very well.  The two types of service business models that do well are those that offer in-home services like plumbing, flooring, HVAC, carpet cleaning, handyman, remodeling, housekeeper, landscaper, painter, etc.  The other is in-office services that focus on local customers like dentists, chiropractors, yoga, massage, spas and salons, restaurants, events, farmers market, etc.  Get in touch with us to see if your business would be a good fit for local SEO.

Yes.  We get this question a lot.  Even when your business is ready for an aggressive marketing campaign, if your website is 8 years old, it might be time to update it before you share it with the world. If you are a new business, or simply want to start a website from the ground up, we can help with that.  We started as a website design company, and still develop and maintain websites for many of our customers.

We offer hosting for all businesses, not just our SEO customers.  Many of our hosting clients use Empire for simply that; they love the speed and reliability as opposed to the slow and often confusing GoDaddy or similar hosting company.

We are a team of highly skilled marketers, designers, writers, and programmers, who are focused on business.  That means the answer to the next question is “No” (spoiler).  We are straight shooters who believe in ethical SEO work, and transparency with our customers.  Not every strategy works on every business, but our experience is what separates our customer’s success from the competition.

Our promise: We only work for you.

We think it’s unethical to work for you and your competitors in the same area. Therefore, we never work with two businesses that compete in the same area. The businesses that work with us enjoy 100% of our dedication and focus to their success. Unlike other marketing companies, we will not compete against you.
