Local Online Marketing for Land Surveyors

I wrote a recent article on local marketing for land surveyors that tells about some of the work I've been doing with local land surveyors and getting them found on the front page of Google for certain relevant keywords. If you want to know more about that, go to USALandSurveryor.com  and watch the Fishing video and read more about Search Engine Optimization.

I think that I'm one of a very few land surveyors who are in the marketing business to help other surveyors. I write most of the articles and I understand what surveyors go through in order to get the work. I've run a land survey and engineering business since 1989.

Call me at 888-316-4124 if you have questions or want to discuss your local marketing efforts. Leave a message if I don't answer please.

Tiago Dias replied to J Keith Maxwell's discussion Rent Equipment vs Buy Equipment?
"Working at the moment in a surveying rent company I believe RENT is the best option for testing and explore new equipment models as well the best for short works (a couple months for exemple and depend on the equipment value)."
