Saskatoon, SK and Ladera Ranch, CA – June 11, 2012
VendAsta Technologies and 180Fusion today announce a strategic partnership to provide search engine optimization, reputation and presence management solutions to SMBs.
VendAsta is an industry leader in SMB tools including reputation management, mobile platforms and social media management tools. 180Fusion, awarded the #1 Local SEO Services Company in the U.S., will leverage VendAsta’s SMB tool set combined with its world class SEO, SEM and social media management solutions to deliver the next generation of reputation and presence management.
“Local search optimization is all about maximizing the number of people that can find a local business and maximizing the number of those that actually contact or visit the business,” says Jeff Tomlin, VP Marketing at VendAsta. “There are a lot of things that affect how wide that funnel is. You have to maximize the number of search sites and directories a business is listed on, ensure the information is consistent, link those to the business presence, ensure user generated content is favorable, and ensure the business presence itself is effective.”
According to Google, social and mobile are growing in use and influence on consumers at a faster rate than other sources of information. This is drastically increasing the need for SMBs to take a holistic approach to their marketing. “The combination of real time visibility into analytics and top search engine rankings for businesses creates a competitive advantage to help fuel customer growth,” says Scott Cohen, CEO at 180Fusion. “By delivering advanced reputation and presence management solutions to the SMB market, the merchant has an easy to use and effective platform to monitor, manage, and grow its online strategy.”
