Surefire Local®, creator of end-to-end local digital marketing solutions that helps businesses become more visible in search and discovery, announced today they acquired BringMeMyLeads for an undisclosed price. This deal combines two leading companies providing local digital marketing solutions to a variety of small businesses across North America. Importantly, the combined client relationships create a market leader in the $350 billion home improvement industry.

“Surefire Local® is growing rapidly and this acquisition allows us to add talented executives, expand and solidify services and increase our client base” said Chris Marentis, Founder and CEO of Surefire Local®. Leveraging its successful formula in the home improvement industry, the company has aggressive plans to expand into other local verticals including medical practices, mortgage and real estate, legal, office services and automotive. “We are positioning the company for the next stage of growth and this acquisition, combined with new technology we are launching, sets the stage”.

As part of the acquisition, BringMeMyLeads founder and CEO George Faerber will join Surefire Local® as an investor and advisor for the company. Other staff members will also join Surefire Local® in sales and operations.

Faerber started BringMeMyLeads to replicate the marketing success he directed for his 25-year old home improvement business. Faerber is a sought-after speaker and consultant for other home services entrepreneurs, as more than 30% of his company’s revenue stems from Internet-generated leads.

“Our approach of personalized, comprehensive local digital marketing solutions is exactly what Surefire Local® is all about” said George Faerber. “Putting these companies together gives us the ability to strengthen our services and help local businesses of any size. We felt that Surefire Local® was the right partner to take what we’ve built and expand it not just within the home services sector, but also to apply it to other verticals”.

Chris Marentis is a passionate entrepreneur and innovator determined to leave a legacy bigger than himself. Chris grew up in an entrepreneurial family with a father who owned a home contracting HVAC business. When traditional media was disrupted by the online world, empowering consumers to rely less on sales people and advertisements to make decisions, large companies with big budgets could afford to play the game, but the local entrepreneur, like Chris’s father was left behind. This disadvantage inspired Chris to write Surefire Local: the guide for local SMB’s to compete in the digital world. Chris was invited to speak at events and demand grew for ways to implement his ideas. Chris turned his vision into a reality when he started Surefire Local in 2009. Feedback was strong. Businesses began asking for help implementing their digital marketing and Surefire evolved into a SaaS and services business. The company’s dramatic growth came with only 1-2 sales people at any given time and a limited marketing budget, thanks to referrals from rabidly loyal clients. The company’s latest innovation Surepulse, an SMB’s Digital CMO, provides data insights and competitive tactics to marketing novices, giving them complete control over their online marketing activities. Chris has spoken at the following events: SMX, BIA/Kelsey, Hanley Wood International Roofing Show and Contractor Summit, NAILBA National Conference, Tech Summit, CCN, GAF Wealth Builders, Gutter Helmet National Dealer Meeting. Publications Chris contributes to: Street Fight, Search Engine Land, iMedia, Social Media Today, Franchising World‏.
