Surefire Local Overview Video
Surefire Local’s founder and CEO Chris Marentis grew up in a household that looked much like those of many other small business owners. His father started a contracting business in 1948. From an early age, Chris understood what it took to start and run a small business, including the critical role of lead generation.
In 2007, having run several venture-backed Web 2.0 technology companies, Chris created a “system” to help small businesses rank well in search engines and gain more online visibility than their competitors. After seeing significant results, Chris wrote the e-book “Surefire Local” and started speaking at small business events. Listening to attendees, Chris heard the frustrations of small business owners related to the emerging internet marketing scene, and the “internet gurus” who promised results that never worked.
The e-book Surefire Local resonated with business owners and Chris started getting more calls for help with website development, search engine optimization and social media marketing. Seeing the demand for small business marketing knowledge and insight, Chris and his team spent the next three years building the most powerful local digital marketing services company in North America and thus Surefire Local was born.
