Brian Saemann – Founder of Local Marketing Hero
I think Google actually wants it to be difficult for you to get
high rankings so that you then spend money on ads.
Brian Saemann has always been interested in having his own business but until a few years ago, he didn’t take any real action to create one. He had his side hustles, an e-commerce website to sell bicycles online, and a site teaching people how to get bartending jobs. But these things were always side hustles, a way to make some extra money while Brian was managing restaurants in fancy country clubs. One day, he had an epiphany. Brian realized the skills I’d learned to create e-commerce sites and to sell bartending e-books were in high demand by people with “regular” businesses. This became a SEO business and now a business teaching others how to set up local marketing businesses.
