Last week I had a chance to visit Cleveland, OH. I had a meetup with entrepreneur minded people who wanted to share their ideas about the modern business world. I’ve never thought that I would enjoy that business event so much. I met people from different states and different countries. Few individuals really struck me with their knowledge, passion, and energy. Joshua Brucci and Eugene (hard to spell last name, sorry Eugene) were young entrepreneurs who weren’t there to pitch their scripted lines, they were there to listen and share the advantage they have in their industries. I promised them to write a few words about them, in hopes, that more business owners will have an opportunity to meet them, and learn what to do to make their business more profitable in this amazing era of internet booming.
Joshua is going to take one year vacation in his home country Italy (lucky human being, he can afford it). Eugene owns company in Cleveland called euGenius Vision. Feel free to visit his page and send him some love – he is one amazing genuine person. When one my friend introduced me to him, I asked him what he was doing as his day job. His answer was: “I take your most valuable online property – your website, and I move it to the most luxurious place online – the first page of Google for the most competitive keywords!” At that moment, I was intrigued by his answer and asked a lot more questions about his approach. Let’s face it, we all had some problem in our life, and we wished for an immediate solution. Usually the first thing we do, we go online to search for a solution! I do. I did it too many times! What we do is we are typing a few keywords related to the type of product or service we want on our favorite search engine (Google, Bing, Yahoo), and scan the first few sites that appeared. My guess is that you almost never go to the second page of the search engine results page, unless you were really desperate for that solution. Imagine if that was another customer who was interested in your product, but was not able to avail of your services because while you may have a website, it was nowhere in sight. That is where Eugene gets in the picture. His company will make sure that your website is redesigned to have the desired ranking and thus making it more visible to your possible customers. How he says: “I can also tailor it to handle a specific type of customers the business would like to get in touch with. The Internet has provided so many advantages to companies to get new clients and increase profits.” Well, that was not new to me. I was learning some ranking techniques and read a lot about Search Engine Optimization since at least 2008. Now it is 2015, there were so many different algorithm updates, I could not follow all that amount of information. Some of my friends who were in SEO industry gave up after new updates. Why? Because it takes so much time and work to follow and learn everything Google wants us to do. That is why I am so fond of Eugene. This is his life – to learn, to adapt, and to help local businesses prosper! That is why I highly recommend getting to know him (just type in Google Cleveland SEO and check if he ranks on the first page of Google) if you want better results in your business, be ahead of your competitors, and similarly, do not let your competitors get ahead of you.
The small local events like this make me believe that there are so many opportunities in this world. With Internet reaching more and more places, it is just a matter of time that most of the things in business will be happening online. I am glad that I met Joshua and Eugene who are so ahead with their vision of where entrepreneur minded people should look at! Moreover, I think we all should learn something from them, and listen to Shia LaBeouf in his viral video – “If you are tired of starting over, stop giving up! Do it!”
