How to Choose the Best Marketing Provider for Your Small Business

How to choose the best marketing provider for your small business

As a small business owner, you know you must advertise and market your business. But with so many “marketing consultants” trying to sell you their services, who can you trust?

So Many Phone Calls, Too Little Time
Small businesses receive 24 calls each month from marketing sales reps, often making lofty or misleading claims.
To help SMBs navigate the ever-changing digital marketing landscape, the Local Search Association (LSA) created the LSA Digital Marketer Certification Program.

Digital Marketer Certification Helps SMBs Find Reputable Marketing Partners

The Certification Program evaluates and verifies the following business practices of marketing providers: 
  • Sales practices and “promises” made to clients
  • Customer service standards and accountability
  • Employee hiring and training practices
  • Service agreements and contracts
  • Clear statements of pricing for products/services
  • Security and privacy of information

Companies that become “LSA Certified” have passed a rigorous review process and are deemed trustworthy.

Haines Local Search is proud to be an LSA Certified Marketing Provider and is committed to its principles and practices.
