Great company to do business with. Honest and fair with pricing. Our requests were small, needed some assistance with configuring email services but Bold City diagnosed the issues quickly and completed the work on time. We will be back for future help.

Cabe & team, we love you guys!  Keep up the great work.

- Marcus Yoker


It’s so difficult to find a technology contact that understands time is money.  We’ve gone through a few that did good work when you could get them on the phone but that was a rarity.  We would go 1+ weeks and not even get a response.  This was costing our business literally thousands of dollars due to issues with our website and email.  Bold City has been nothing but a blessing.  They return my calls and emails promptly and thus far (fingers crossed) have always met their promised deadlines.  If you’re looking for a company that understands the importance of communicating with their clients, you’ve found the one.  They have my recommendation.

- Abby Timmons


Who ya gonna call?! BOLD CITY! But seriously, nothing but a pleasure to work with.  We trust them completely and they have our business for life.

- Lona Mayer


Best website design company out there. USE. THESE. GUYS.  Affordable, fair, great communication and great work.

- Susan Johnson


As a technology company we know great work when we see it.  We had an internal learning system that was built by a previous employee.  When that employee moved on from the company we had nobody internal that understood WordPress enough to make changes and continue to improve the system.  We outsourced the project to Bold City, they took it head on and we’re able to make our required changes.  We plan to use them more in 2019.

- Mike Dawker


Bold City built us a fantastic website the showed off our company perfectly.  They recommended fantastic additions including the video on the homepage which really sets our site apart from anybody else.  We get soooo many compliments on our website and the new patients we’ve brought in have been fantastic.  Great work guys!

- Brittany Higgins


Great work as always!  We’ll be back when we need additional help.

- Jenny Walker


Cabe & team are awesome at what they do.  Fast, reliable and most importantly communication is A+.  Finding people that are able to communicate what they are doing and regularly hit promised deadlines is a rarity these days but Bold City delivers!

- David Ayers


Best WordPress designers out there!  If you’re on the fence about hiring them, jump off!  You’ve found the best company out there!

- Samantha Lloyd


I’m not a very tech savvy person so I wanted to find a web design company that could take my vision, turn it into a reality and handle the management.  Bold City has been terrific and I always know my website is working in the background.

- Jannis Darring


We’ve been working with Bold City for over 5 years and never have had a bad experience.  Quick and reliable, A+.

- Jane Walton


After extensive research, we hired Bold City to handle the re-design of our 10+ year old e-commerce website.  Bold City took every challenge we threw at them head on.  Going above and beyond just design, they assisted with payment processors, shipping and made several recommendations that have improved our bottom line.  Their in-depth knowledge has been  major reason for our continued success.

- Jonathan Vemus


Awesome, awesome, awesome!  Fast, reliable and very cost effective for our business.  Bold City took over our website from our previous designer who was retiring and the transfer process was seamless.

- Jennifer Handler


These guys were awesome.  We contacted them to move hosting providers as we were struggling with communication with our current host.  They transferred our site same day at no cost.  Cabe was terrific to work with and has been very easy to get in touch with since.

How To Get More Local Leads – Local SEO Services

How To Get More Local Leads – Local SEO Services

Google and other search engines have been giving greater emphasis to localized search results for the last several years.  The goal is to help residents find small businesses local to them to do business with.  In return, this has created the need for specialized ‘Local SEO Services’ that focus on growing search ranking for small businesses within their community.

Here at Bold City, we work with local clients within Jacksonville, Ponte Vedra, St. Augustine at doing just that, local search engine optimization & digital marketing. 


What Even Is Local SEO?

Great question!  What’s involved in local SEO will depend on your business type & competition for your targeted keywords but generally involves:

  1. Location-targeted landing pages
  2. Product/service targeted landing pages
  3. Reputation management for business profiles
  4. Generating positive reviews across business profiles
  5. Creating business citations
  6. On-page optimization including behind the scenes meta titles & descriptions that promote your website to your target audience.
  7. Website speed improvements as needed
  8. Website structure & design modifications as needed
  9. Pay-per-click and re-targeting campaigns
  10. And more!  We’re always learning & improving our methods to market your businesses locally. 

With the majority of the options expressed above, there are right and wrong ways to go about implementing them and ensuring search engines are indexing your changes.  Performing these integrations the wrong way can have negative implications for your small business in terms of Google penalties and duplicate content de-indexing.


The Proof Is In The Results

Sounds cool.  How do I know it’s working?  How do you measure results?

We can talk about it all we want but we know you want to see results.  Most of our results are measured in comparing data through Google analytics.  If you already have Google Analytics installed on your website, great!  If not, we’ll install it upon starting the project and compare data from the first month of our services to the third or fourth.  What we look for is:

  1. Increase in the amount of visitors to your site
  2. Increase in the amount of pages they look at in a single visit
  3. Increase in the amount of time they spend on your site
  4. Decrease in the bounce rate (this is the rate at which people come to your site, visit only one page and then leave)
  5. Ranking improvement for our target keywords in Search Console.

The results of your specific campaign will vary based on your business market & competitors in the space.  Generally, we take our first in-depth measurement of your campaign after 3 months.  At which time we will provide detailed comparison reporting as well as tweak our plan of action based on the data.


You Mention Reviews – I Like Those

Who doesn’t love a profile full of 100 5-star reviews?  We can help with that!  Reviews are a major factor that goes into your organic search engine ranking.  They also play a major factor in your ability to show up in Google Maps for mobile & desktop devices.

Bold City helps small business locally in Jacksonville, St. Augustine, & Ponte Vedra as well as businesses around the world by improving their Google, Yelp, Trip Advisor, Houzz, etc. business profiles with the collection of reviews.  We use three primary methods to collect reviews:

1. Arrivala Automated Review System

Arrivala is a product that was created by Bold City to automated review collection for our marketing clients.  The system will automatically request reviews from your past customers and follows up with them via email or text message to make sure the review is written.  After receiving the review, we work with the same past customer to help distribute that review across all of your business profiles (Google, Facebook, Yelp, Trip Advisor, etc).  Arrivala also has a bunch of other really cool features that you should check out at  Or give us a call at 904-755-0091 to discuss how Arrivala can fit in with your business.

2. Google Review Link Generator

Have you ever wanted to ask a past customer for a review on Google but couldn’t provide them with an explanation on how to do it?  Fear no more.  Bold City has a method to provide you with a simple link that you can send such customers.  The customer clicks the link on their computer, tablet or mobile device and it instantly takes them right to the review page.

3. Google Review Handout Generator

What about those customers you meet in person?  What if there was a quick one-page handout that you could give them as they left your business or a project was completed?  Bold City has designed just that for our local marketing customers.  We’ll give you a one-page PDF that is specific to your business and makes it easy for past customers to review your business.


How Do I Get Started With Local SEO?

It’s easy, just get in touch with us.  Whether you are local to Northeast Florida or in a land far away.  If your business is looking to gain traction in search or map listings within a local radius we have the answers.  One-time Local SEO services can start as low as $500 while long term growth strategies can be as low as $500/month.  If your business could use more local leads give us a call or complete our contact form to learn more!
