Gerrid Smith

CEO, Map Kings

I’m determined to make a business in Ashburn successful. Will it be yours?

 

Hi, my name is Gerrid Smith and I’ve been promoting small businesses in Google for over 10 years primarily through my law firm marketing agency, Black Fin. Recently though, I made the decision to offer our high-level boutique services outside of the very competitive legal field because I noticed how poorly clients were being treated in other niches. I want to make sure every small business has access to Internet marketing veterans that can truly take their business and sales to the next level.

 

Unlike other SEO and Web Design companies, at Map Kings, we focus exclusively on optimizing map listings for small businesses. Our goal is to utilize our expertise toward the single goal of increasing the leads and sales for each small business campaign that we create.

 

We treat each client’s web presence as our own – your success is our success. Our no-contract policy only exists because of our confidence in our ability to produce results. Give us a chance to prove our expertise to you today!

 

Thank you,

Gerrid Smith

10+ Years of Internet Marketing Experience

I’ve been providing Internet marketing services to small business for over 10 years and the last eight years have been focused on “Local SEO” and “Google Maps Optimization.”

We're Small - You're Not a Number to Us

Unlike some of our competitors with hundreds of employees and thousands of clients, we have a small team and are highly focused on providing an unmatched customer experience.

Proven Process

Our Google Maps Optimization process has been tested and proven over many years (I’ve been providing SEO services for over 10 years). This process has ranked hundreds of small businesses in the maps.

All We Do Is Maps SEO

We’re not building your website, running your PPC campaign, managing your social media or writing your content. Our goal is to be world-class at maps optimization so we’ve put 100% of our focus in that area.

Affordable for All Budgets

I setup our packages to be affordable for the majority of small businesses in the US. The last thing I want is to lose the opportunity to help a great local company generate more business and boost our economy.

Cancel Anytime - No Contracts

For 10 years I've had the philosophy that I NEVER want a company to feel 'locked-in' to work with me. I’ve heard too many horror stories of lousy marketing agencies tying small business owners into contracts while providing terrible service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there a monthly contract?

There is not, but as a fellow business owner, I would ask that you give our services 90 days to generate results. As you can imagine, results that can be achieved overnight can also be lost overnight. We want to create results that will last for many years to come.

How long do results last?

This depends completely on your competition. If your niche is uncompetitive, you won’t likely need more than 90 days of our service. If your niche is competitive, you may need our services for six months or even longer.

How long does it take to see results?

Most companies see results in 90 days.

How long have you been promoting businesses in Google Maps?

I’ve been personally promoting businesses in Google for 12 years but the last eight years have been focused on “Local SEO” which includes maps optimization.

How does Google rank small businesses in the maps?

While Google hasn’t explained exactly how their algorithm works, MOZ has published a fantastic article here that provides an overview of the key factors: https://moz.com/local-search-ranking-factors

Is there a company this won’t work for?

Because we’re focused on map optimization, it would be important to note that Google should be showing map results for the keywords that are important to your business for this service to work for you.

Is there a guarantee?

Yes. I’m so confident in our services that if we accept you as a client, we guarantee a top three ranking in Google maps or we will continue to work on the campaign at no cost to you until a top three ranking is achieved.

Do you accept all businesses that want to work with you?

No, unfortunately we cannot. Sometimes businesses do not align with our values and ethics. A huge key to success these days is that your business must have positive ratings in Google. It would not benefit us, or you, if we ranked your business well if it had a low rating (2.5/5 stars). We reserve the right to refuse to work with any company that we feel we can’t help, or isn’t a fit with our values.

I’ve had terrible experiences before with other marketing companies, how can I be sure you won’t rip me off?

The reality is, you don’t. And there’s no simple way to determine if someone truly knows what they are doing or not. That being said, scammers have terrible search results in Google. If you were to Google their name, you would find negative listings about them and their businesses. I would encourage you to Google me. What will you find? Information on my law firm marketing company, Black Fin, which was just listed in this year’s INC 5000 list (we were the 5th fastest growing company in Cleveland). You will find articles I’ve written on sites such as Forbes and INC.com. You will probably also find my Facebook page which you can view here: https://www.facebook.com/gerridsmith I think you’ll see that I’m a real, genuine person who truly cares about his clients.

Can you send me examples of clients you’ve ranked in Google Maps?

Yes, absolutely. Due the private nature of our business, we don’t publish client results on this website but I am happy to send you examples of our success by email. Just fill out the form below.
