"Ed’s been on retainer with us for over 2 years overseeing our two websites for continued development, SEO and reputation management. We are delighted with the way Ed laid out the strategy and tactics necessary for us to move to an organic model.

Previously, we were investing heavily in PPC and not getting results. After a ramp-up of 6 months, were ranking #1 and #2 in 17 of our keywords (and, Ed did this with an investment less than we did with PPC).

Ed’s stellar efforts has led to us getting the first phone call when our customers are looking for our niche services and equipment."

"Ed provided great expertise in setting up a targeted social media ad campaign. He reviewed previous campaigns and then designed a new, exceptionally successful campaign. He was a pleasure to work with."

"Ed is a terrific adviser for small businesses. His strategic direction and guidance is deeply insightful and comes from a place of long experience and extensive expertise. He knows how to steer you toward big profits and away from dangers. If you run a small business and are looking to improve your business, call Ed."

Leon Altman

Owner/Founder Altman Communications

"Ed is very thorough and passionate about his online endeavors and I would at any time sit under his guidance to realize success."

Edward Abrahams

Owner, OnBrand

"I was lucky to be included in an online “webinar” that Ed taught about SEO. Over four 1-hour classes, Ed shared a lot of secrets for building a successful website. I was really impressed by his communication skills as he presented everything clearly and in a way that is fully comprehensible to an audience that knows less than he does about computers. I can see this as a major advantage for anyone considering hiring him as a consultant. Second, I found him to be extremely knowledgeable and up to date about resources and “tricks” to turn your website into a real business. And Third, Ed demonstrated dedication to his customers, taking care of us with numerous emails and skype ‘office hours’. He is truly generous with his time and knowledge.

After taking this course, I feel like I am more “on top of it” when it comes to SEO optimization, especially as I now understand WHY we need to do certain things to get those top rankings.
Ed clearly knows his stuff, so I can easily recommend him as a consultant now or for any services he chooses to offer in the future."

"I have learned so much from Ed Forteau. He stands out as unique in the sales and marketing world.  He’s low hype, highly ethical and honest, and because of that, people trust and respect him.  His teachings on how to turn prospects into clients successfully are crucial to anyone who wants to make sales in person, in email, or on the web.  His approach is both counter-intuitive and successful and can be applied not only to business but to life relationships.  

Ed did a teleseminar with me.  The comments we received from the audience were uniformly positive, and he helped us to establish credibility as a source of high quality internet marketing professionals.  I feel lucky to have Ed Forteau as a business partner."

Lynn Carnes

CEO, The Great Life

"Ed delivered on everything he promised, and much, much more. Working with him was an absolute delight. Just using a few of his techniques I was able to increase sales over 50%. I'm really looking forward to any opportunity to work with Ed in the future."

Fairlyn Montella

Owner, LITTLE GENIUS TOYS

"Ed is a rare breed in the internet marketing arena, being both a top level strategist as well as a detail-oriented tactician. He's particularly gifted in the area of Search Engine Optimization (SEO), able to quickly spot and then exploit opportunities to get first page rankings for even the most competitive terms. 

Unlike many of the "so-called" SEO consultants who dazzle and amaze clueless clients by getting them rankings for complete worthless (no one's searching for them) long-tail keywords and phrases, Ed takes on the challenge of getting rankings for high-value, high competition keywords and...delivers results. 

If you ever get the chance (he was talking about retiring from any type of SEO work for anything other than his own sites) to hire Ed's SEO skills, jump on it, you'll be glad you did."

Roque Lachica

Integrated Offline/Online Marketing Specialist

"Ed is very adept at identifying weak copy and offering suggestions on how to improve it. Couple that with his email marketing and blogging skills and he is a heavy-weight in his field. I have been fortunate enough to experience his passion for his work and I look forward to looking to Ed for future projects as well."
