I got a call from Dan Hobin, G5’s CEO, who tells me that they have just become an ‘authorized reseller of Adwords”.

G5 Search Marketing is one of those great Internet marketing companies you’ve never heard of.  They focus on servicing the self-storage industry and by their account they are kicking butt and profitable.  I am not sure what the big difference is between being authorized and unauthorized, but at the least G5 gets to use Google’s name in a press release.

Anyhow, the thing I like about G5 is that they are in line with my theory (or is it a postulate?) that those who focus on niches and own the web presence for SMBs are the ones who are going to be in control of the future of local search.  So congrats to G5.

I  am a bit rushed this morning but I may post some more data about this later this week.

    although this is a great accolade, i have clicked through from your link to the site and immediately i am turned off by a couple of styling issues:

    What we Do – stock imagery with the watermark still intact (not purchased)

    White paper request going through to a quote form (submit quote button), i don’t want a quote, i want a white paper.

    Perhaps i am being pedantic but in my experience it is always the little things that make all the difference. And that stop your customers running for the hills (the back button)As a company offering marketing services i would immediately have concerns about their attention to detail and make judgements on the quality of of service they could provide.

    small points things make a big difference

    Yea, i agree with gavin, it’s small things that make a difference. And Interent is a place where everything has to be almost perfect. Because one tiny mistake can lead to huge load of negative feedbacks towards the website.
