It was 1999 and my sister Melissa landed a HUGE contract with ResortQuest International to build one of the first online booking vacation rental properties for them. I was hired to help train each one of the 28 properties on the content tools being designed.
That job quickly turned into a position of ranking each of these sites in the Search Engines Lycos, AltaVista, DMOZ, HotBot, Excite, Infoseek, and a few others.
What a thrill it was to learn all about Search Engine Optimization (SEO) back in the day. We quickly ranked these vacation sites with keywords such as “beach vacation rentals” “ski vacation rentals” “(city name) vacation rentals” and so many other popular keyword phrases being used.
Realizing that my efforts in ranking just ONE of these vacation rental companies increased their revenue by the MILLIONS was enough for me to continue in this field of work.
Ranking clients’ websites on the first page of Google and watching the leads come in and their revenue grow is not just a job or a business to us…it is our PASSION!
Along with SEO, this family of entrepreneurs is also all about the sales and marketing side of the business and that is where our Dad comes into play.
Allow our family to help your family grow your business online and/or offline by using the talents God has blessed us with.
Founder/SEO Strategist (Daughter #3)
LivinLyfe Marketing was birthed back in 2009 when I decided to jump out in faith and head back to college. This time I knew what I wanted to do with my life so I signed up for a Marketing Degree at Full Sail University.
While going to college, I continued helping local clients rank their sites on top of home-schooling my children. In 2011 I graduated Valedictorian of my class with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Internet Marketing.
Since then I have designed websites, worked with local businesses to grow their online presence and increase their revenues, and have made some dear friends along the way with other small business owners.
I sincerely look forward to working with more local, God-fearing, patriotic business owners that are looking to take their business to the next level.
Y’all Be Blessed,
Marketing Director/Processes & Systems Guru (Son #2)
Ben comes to LivinLyfe Marketing with fervor and resilience that I have not seen in a while. After serving our country for over 20 years in the United States Air Force he has decided to venture out into the civilian world and tackle SEO and Online Marketing like his life depends on it.
He has jumped into this wonderful business helping with the systems and processes needed to not only rank a site but also market that site through Google and FB Ads.
He loves to help all businesses but has a special place in his heart for the Veteran Owned Businesses.
With his fun-loving never say die or quite attitude you better believe he will bring that to your business while ranking it and marketing it so you can laugh all the way to the bank.
Our Go To For Sales & Marketing (Husband & Father)
When it comes to sales, marketing, and knowing what to say to close that sale, our Dad is the master of it.
You would think we wouldn’t need to call up our Dad on a daily basis considering when we were growing up we had to listen to Zig Zigler, Foundations of Sales, and other personal development records instead of hanging with our friends.
It was these moments that instilled in each of us kids that servant’s heart and entrepreneurial spirit.
Resident Geek/Web Development (Daughter #1)
Don’t let her good looks deceive you, Melissa, who is the oldest of us 6 kids has been designing websites since 1995 and is the smarty pants in the bunch (I say this with much love and admiration). She actually built a site for a local builder back in 1997 and because of the Virtual Reality tour she did for him, he was one of the first businesses to sell a home to someone on the other side of the country. She and Dad have always been on the bleeding edge of the Internet, pulling clients with them into the future of technology!
Melissa not only can design and develop a website like no other, but she is also amazing at numbers and Excel which helps us deliver your monthly reports in an easy-to-read and understandable way.
