Hi, I’m Aaron- owner of Local 9 Marketing.

Since ‘About Us’ pages can often influence a buyer’s decision, I wanted to think up something catchy or clever.  After several attempts to sound smarter than I really am, I opted instead to consider my wife’s recommendation to show off my biceps..

I’m kidding…no clever dialog is as effective as honest and open communication- so I’m going to write this page like it was a letter to a friend.

Which ….in many ways, it is.

Anyway – what do you want to know about us?

I’m a 33 year old dad of 2 awesome kids and a dog who chases lasers. I live in Philadelphia with my wife, Emily. My team consists of over-sea experts whom I have personally vetted over the years and who have become my friends.

My guess is that’s not the kind of stuff you’re looking for.

You’re probably wondering,

Is This Worth My Attention To Read?

For many readers, my answer is NO.

Here’s why:

You have to actually learn some SEO to be able to inspect what you expect

This website is designed to share the important basics so that you know the value of good SEO service when you consider hiring a team. Thorough research takes time and patience.

If you want a quick fix,


keep shopping.

Don’t believe a proposal that offers guaranteed results in less than 6-12 months. There are plenty of proven methods on how to rank a website fast- but I don’t recommend it.

Remember: Careful internet marketing is more effective than hasty results that risk penalties. Penalties can either get a website de-indexed or keep the site obscurely stuck on the second page. The unnaturally fast rankings may impress but hardly ever endure.

I prefer investing efforts in lasting results.

Sloppy work is a waste of time and money. If you want to waste time I recommend doing it in a less expensive and more enjoyable fashion like watching a good T.V. series like Poldark.

If you are looking for a “Google partner”, look elsewhere. I disagree with false pretenses.

SEO companies use this purchased certificate to lead people to believe they have a direct “in” with Google or worse they get you to believe they are calling from Google.

I have only seen that certificate used to mislead. I have personally received several phone calls from “Google” representatives who learned a sharp lesson about honesty from me each time.

Here’s what you can expect from me and my team.

  • A complete overview of how SEO works. 4 half-hour long required sessions with me will help you know exactly what to expect. We’ll establish a solid working relationship and get on the same page with how to best help you dominate your industry online.
  • Immediate deliverables in the form of a robust system for online customer reviews, your business directory listings, and Google places implementation just to name the smallest first steps.

L9 operates by the “in order for our customers to want to keep putting money in our pockets… we must put plenty more money in their pockets” trick.

This means we actually make a difference in your bottom line.

We rarely lose a client so it seems to work like a charm time and time again…

Well, I suppose I must share my “self-aggrandizing biography” filled with stories fraught with dragon slaying and an enchantress to make this a more exciting ‘About Us’ page – and you’ve already read this far anyways, so here goes:

I was building websites for people in 2009 but it wasn’t until a short while later that I learned just how lucrative it is to have a website at the top of Google.

I have always loved building businesses and was bent on establishing a local window cleaning service by going door-to-door finding customers. It wasn’t until I managed to get our website at the top of Google and reap the subsequent flood of inbound calls for window cleaning that I realized just how valuable it is to be found online.

In order to maintain my top position I became insatiably obsessed with mastering SEO and I subscribed to every course, joined every forum and social group, and finally befriended some of the very best who became my mentors.

During this process I began to help friends and family succeed online and yield the increased new customer profits. I build my team of amazing friends overseas through trial and error.


Did I make money? I started to, yes.

But I limited my customers to only the number I knew I could deliver results for and all of my first customers are still with me.

At the beginning I helped:

  • a brand new diesel company go from nothing to the busiest in town within 10 months. They had to relocate to a 10 car garage instead of the original 2.
  • a senior care center grew from 1 facility into 4
  • a water damage company went from almost laying people off to a company receiving so many calls they had to hire many more hands to service new customers.

And there began to be increasingly more success stories.

We’re still a smaller company but we’ve grown to help global websites. Our work started showing up on bigger websites like with names like ABC, Fox News, MSNBC, etc.

I believe our mutual success continues to happen because we chose to do it the “right” way. We keep choosing to maintain the same level of quality to ensure every new business’ website brings them more money at the end of the day.

Here’s What I Will Help

You With, Specifically

Our main focus is to get you showing up at the top of Google when people type specific phrases looking for the type of thing you offer.

It is, in my opinion, the Holy Grail of marketing but we do much more than that.

We also focus on your positioning on Google maps and the reviews found on all the major platforms. In other words, we take the Amazon approach: The top results with the best and most five-star reviews are the ones people choose.

Here’s My First Sales Pitch To You:

I invite you to select the best day and time for an appointment- or put your number in the provided field.

I will only use your number to personally call you and talk about your goals for your website.

I won’t sell you anything. I’ll help you with an understanding of the 3000 ft view and your next best step to take on your own and I’ll even give you part of the road map on how you can do it on your own free and clear.

It’s okay if you think you may want our team to do deeper research then what I can do with you in 10 minutes. You may find yourself wanting the improvements to your website and that’s okay too.

We’ll put together a proposal and send it to you within a day or two so that you can make the best decision. Then, if you decide to move forward, we can get you started on the right foot.


Thanks for reading this page. Let’s get you up and going!
