Welcome to Episode 147 of Building My Legacy.

 In this podcast, we talk with George Copeland, the CEO of Laborem Edge, a digital marketing agency that works primarily with companies offering home services — such as landscapers, home remodelers and pool installers — and law firms. George’s introduction to digital marketing came when he was forced to learn how to build a website because the company he hired didn’t meet the deadline. This experience also taught him that, to win and keep business, he had to lead with integrity. George cautions against working with agencies that “promise the world” because it all “starts with transparency and knowledge.” George’s message is relevant whether you’re developing or refining your digital marketing strategy or building your legacy.

So if you want to know:

  • How a Google tool can show you which marketing efforts are working and which are not
  • About “word of mouth” advertising and concerns you should have about its relationship to social media
  • Why starting a digital marketing campaign is a lot like starting a business
  • How to know if you’re really ready for digital marketing
  • How to use the free Google My Business service
