The Local SEO Pro Kit is a product that will actually have damaging affects on your business. If you’re considering buying this product, I can’t urge you enough to stay away from it. It cannot deliver on its promise and the $14 bucks you lose buying it will be the least of your problems.

Summer is here and every couple of days someone comes to my house promoting their pool cleaning business. It must be a weather or season thing, because I also had someone promoting a home security system, grocery delivery, and even a kid selling candy. Going door to door is so 10 years ago.

We get to interview Chris M. Cloutier from Media Fresh Press and talk to him about local search marketing. I also rant about Apple and the stock market, and give you my 5 step process (tried and tested with experience) to become an expert (or at least skilled) in anything you want.
