Question and answer

Q. Describe the most common types of jobs you do for your clients.

A. Sidewalk Branding Company knows that today’s small business marketing strategy is complex – the need to get-it-right is more important now than ever. Online marketing, search engine marketing, search engine optimization, and social media marketing have become the standard toolset for small-business business marketing.

Dollar-for-dollar; online marketing puts your business in front of more customers and keeps you connedted with past clients better than any other marketing activity.

Our most popular service includes getting existing websites listed prominently on search engines and thus found by consumers. Additionally, we frequently construct professionally designed social media profiles - such as Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and others.

Need help assessing what marketing activities will give you the biggest bang - consultation is FREE.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Years of experience?
Percentage of business is small - medium - large business?
Where have they been published?
Customer retention rate?

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Knowing the top 3 words/phrases you want your website to show up for when searched on Google would provide for a meaningful conversation.

Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?

A. Do you remember the days when people would gather on sidewalks in front of their houses and businesses to talk with their friends and neighbors about what was going on in their lives?

Having grown up in a small Connecticut town – I sure do.

What I remember most about that talk; was how it often was about the simple things in life - what business in town sold the best stuff; where to go for a bite to eat, who could fix your car right, how the Little League team was doing, or what business had the friendliest service.

"Word-Of-Mouth-Advertising" was what businesses called it then - now fast-forward a few decades, and we find words like Google, Foursquare, Facebook, SEO, LinkedIn, Blogging, and social media household phrases - the new media marketing tools for forward-thinking businesses.

Times they are a changin' - what got businesses where they are today is not a guarantee it will get them where they want to be tomorrow. Today's businesses needs more than just a sidewalk-talk marketing strategy, local businesses need to actively target market their audience online to be discovered by the people searching for the products & services they have to offer.


"This is what I do; and this has been my passion since 1997" Chris Sheehy - owner

Q. How did you decide to get in your line of work?

A. Way back in 1997 I opened my first business; I had a lot of passion but not a lot of cash - so I bought my first computer (Dell) and build a website to promote my new company.

Within six-months my new website had gained enough online exposure that it was nominated Website Of The Year within my industry. Three years later - 100% of my clients found my services via the web.

I've been helping businesses get online and get found online ever since...

Q. If you have a complicated pricing system for your service, please give all the details here.

A. There are no cookie-cutter marketing programs here - each prospect has a through qualification process to both determine a good strategy - but also a good mutual business fit.

We are looking for the brightest of businesses who want to succeed in online search marketing.

Initial consultation is complementary.
