Your business has a long-term view on search marketing.
Your business has high-value leads and clients. Flagstone specializes in law firms and other SMBs with an average value-per-lead of $1000 or more. High-quality SEO and PPC are an investment, and you’ll see the return sooner when your return per client is higher. Your business has a high-performing website (or wants to). A search marketing campaign is only as strong as the website the clients eventually reach. Our clients come with websites that already perform well for their business – or come with websites that ARE NOT performing, and request our help in an update or a redesign, before we launch any campaigns. *** Are you a marketing agency? A good percentage of our clients are agencies who come to us for specialized help in PPC, SEO and Local SEO. We’re happy to take our years of experience in running SEO and PPC campaigns and put it to use delivering ROI for your clients.
Hey, I’m Carlton. I’m on a mission to help companies like you get maximum ROI out of your online marketing budget.
I started my quest 20+ years ago, at the dawn of the internet (back when it was called ‘The Information Superhighway’ and Netscape was the web browser of choice). As a nascent journalist, I found myself increasingly drawn to the world of words on the web. My last official journalism stint crossed the lines as Time, Inc.’s senior manager of Search Engine Optimization. When I saw what I could do for Time’s publicity with SEO, I decided to use it to help other businesses as well. Flagstone Search Marketing was born in 2011. I’ve helped dozens of clients from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies maximize what they get out of the web. (If you want to see who they are, scroll down to the bottom of the page.) Now, instead of writing in the media, I’m featured in the media, in places like the Huffington Post, Forbes, The Chicago Tribune, Business.com, and Inc.com.
