My fellow business owners, I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of you for your loyalty, and your continued faith in our ability to handle your businesses' online marketing campaigns. While the last few years have been economically challenging, we stand prepared to turn the tide. Equipped with new technologies and a fresh array of industry-leading experts, eGumball is ready to lead America's local businesses into a brighter, more prosperous, and stable future.
It's hard to believe that we launched our first website way back in 1996, before the term SEO was ever coined, and a full two years before Google officially launched. Reflecting back across a decade and a half of work in this industry, I understand how much online commerce has evolved during this time, and how consistently eGumball has been at the forefront of this evolution.
Over the years we have provided clients with optimal solutions for even the most complex and challenging marketing initiatives. As time has passed, Google's focus has become more localized. The search engine giant has launched a number of services to satisfy its users' growing tendency to use Google to find local businesses. From the business owner's point of view, the most crucial of these has been Google My Business(formerly known as Google Places for Business), the only online business directory with listings which are fully integrated not only into Google's organic search results, but also into Google Maps and Google+.
Once again, the nature of local, online marketing is evolving, and once again eGumball stands as a leader in these advancements. We are ready to capitalize on the rewards of these emerging opportunities for all of our clients.
As a fellow company owner, I want you to know that understanding your business is my business. Rest assured, as eGumball's client, we will always go the extra mile to promote your company online. If ever you have any questions about our service and support, contact our Customer Service team and ask to be connected to the office of the President. My door is always open.
