This is Fred Ball, Zions Bank, speaking on business.
At a family reunion in 2008, Stuart Draper overheard his brother-in-law, a dentist, talk about how expensive it is to get a Web site on the first page of Google. In fact, Stuart's brother-in-law felt Internet marketing in general was difficult and traffic to his Web site hadn't garnered a single new patient in the three years it had been online.
Stuart had recently finished his studies at BYU-Idaho in Internet marketing. He helped his brother-in-law start running ads as sponsored links on Google, which quadrupled traffic to his Web site. His dental ad now shows up on the Google Map, the Google sponsored links and in the number one spot on the left side of the Google search results when you search for a dentist in his city. The business has had three record-breaking months this year and averages 15 new patients per month because of Stuart's online marketing strategies.
Inspired by the success of his marketing efforts with his brother-in-law, Stuart decided to start a business designed to improve companies' Internet marketing practices, and the result was getfoundfirst.com. Getfoundfirst.com, launched in September 2008, helps companies manage their paid advertisements, specifically sponsored links on Google, Yahoo and Bing, as well as optimize Web searches related to their industry. The company can also provide targeted Facebook ads to reach defined audiences.
Stuart says the company started out helping dentists and still specializes in assisting them with generating new patients through their Web sites, but he now serves clients from all types of industries. As a primarily Internet-based company, Stuart works with clients all over the world from his headquarters in Rexburg. One is a European Web development company that outsources all of its online marketing services to getfoundfirst.com. Stuart says the company's low overhead costs have translated into savings for clients.
Getfoundfirst.com is unique in that it offers to show any Web site owner their ad on the first page of Google free for one day. Stuart plans to continue the company's rapid growth rate into 2010 and beyond.
For Zions Bank, I'm Fred Ball. I'm speaking on business.
