"I started in 2009, and before Carlton did my SEO strategy, I was appearing on the 6th or 7th page for my search terms. Now, I'm always in one of the top two spots (with other pages from my website appearing multiple times) on the first page of a Google search. I get at least 98% of my business from my website. For the modest amount I invested, it's paid for itself literally a hundred times over. It's the best money my business has ever spent. Without my website appearing on the first page of Google, I won't be booking trips. I really can't overstate how much of a boost his SEO work did for my business."
Tom Campbell, Destiny Unbound Angling  
"The work by Carlton and his team was truly amazing. I have been pleased and impressed by the work they did on my website."
Senator Cam Ward  
"During the months that followed the tragic events of April 27th, 2011, our non-profit needed to reach a broad base of individuals with one goal in mind, raising funds for storm relief. Having very little experience with web design or non-profit fund raising for that matter, I turned to Carlton Smith, with Flagstone Search Marketing. Carlton and I had worked on several other projects in the past, and I knew that he had the expertise that we so desperately needed! He created a top-of-line website that helped to communicate our message to the public and raise the necessary funds for our organization. Our communication was delivered by multiple videos and images that Carlton developed for the site. He also added a fund raising component which was critical. With the help of Paypal and “Text2Give” our website was turned into a self-sustaining fundraising machine!"
Garrett Jemison, Rising Tide Foundation  
"Carlton helped us with a cost-effective implementation of Wordpress and a search engine marketing strategy that's been a steady source of leads for our business."
Meredith Brown, Brown Business Brokers  
"Carlton and Flagstone are the perfect combination of what my business needs in web consulting: they know what works, they know how to implement, and they get it done quickly with results. The thing that sets them apart is that they are intuitive and responsive to client needs, and not afraid to speak up when there's a better way to accomplish the team goals. I've used them on many client sites and projects, but also on my own website. If you need anything from a full web presence for beginning a business, to crisis management SEO, to punching up an existing project - Flagstone Search Marketing and Carlton Smith will get it done!"
David Mowery, Mowery Consulting Group, LLC  
"We wanted a website that conveyed a clear message and was easy to navigate, and Carlton did a great job in creating it!  He met with us, listened to what wanted to achieve, gave us solid advice, and produced an outstanding, professional website.  He was also there to make changes quickly when we needed to do so.  We received a lot of positive comments about our site, and we highly recommend Carlton!"
Judge Howard and Kathy Hawk  
"I had a great experience working with Carlton on my web redesign. He was affordable, professional and delivered a turn-key design that met and exceeded my expectations."
