Having already established The Local Marketer as a side hustle to build websites for businesses and churches (even contributing to popular sites such as ChurchMag and Church Tech Today) but he’d build new sites and watch them get no organic traffic. After all, people won’t visit your site if they don’t know it’s there!

So he did what he knew how to do from years of experience in IT: troubleshoot, test, and apply what he learned to solve complex problems.

After many mistakes—and lots of research—Roberto unlocked the basics of online marketing. He then began offering local marketing services to businesses and churches in the Massachusetts area. He firmly believes that a proper marketing strategy is key to attracting an audience and growing a business.

Remember, the goal of local marketing is not to reach every ship out on the open seas! The goal is to reach an audience who lives in, works in, and visits your side of the bay—each and every day. Creating a network of loyal brand ambassadors who will sing your praises to their friends.

Effective local marketing starts with knowing your local audience. Then, convey the problem you solve—and why they should care about you solving it.
