"If you want to really get it done and move the needle. James Martell and his SmarterLocal team are whom you want in your corner. I’ve listened to his podcast for years absorbing all the value he so freely gives. The knowledge, value, and experience he gives are second to none. TOP NOTCH! It was because of his experience I chose him as my mentor for my podcast and to work with him to revamp my website."

"I have worked with James and Arlene now for over 4 years. They have earned my trust and I’m grateful to have them on my team. They have done my website, search optimized it and shown me how to blog and podcast on my own. Their work has greatly contributed to the success of my business and I would refer them to any business owner looking to succeed online. Plus, they are great people."

"I was looking to grow my new whale watching adventure company. James Martell helped me to understand the fundamentals of growing a successful online sales and marketing program for my business. James and his team then assisted and mentored me to implement that program which quickly helped me grow from ZERO to full boats of whale watching adventure seekers."
