Testimonials

Main Street ROI produces results. I was most impressed with how thorough Peter was at our initial appointment. He is an excellent listener, and by our next meeting, I found that his approach to internet marketing was different…and brilliant. The combination of results you might imagine a large machine-type web firm would yield, paired with a process that I would closely compare to ‘having to show my work on an algebra test’ inspired confidence and trust. Working with these guys has improved my business, and they have made it easy. They are a pleasure to work with, high communication, and have my best interest in mind. Most importantly of all, I never feel like I’m talking to a “hired-gun” when I email these guys; I value and consider them a part of my team.

I am owner of Colchin Automotive Inc. in Arvada Colorado, I know little about SEO and all the related activities but I know I must align my company with good people to help with marketing. We signed on with MSROI on the advice of our marketing agent. Morgan Gertler is our account rep and has done a great job with communicating everything MSROI is doing and my responsibilities on the road to improve our ranking on Google. As we all know SEO is an ongoing and ever-changing endeavor, so to commit to a long-term investment in marketing is scary. Phil Frost frequently hosts webinars on various topics – he speaks with confidence, knowledge and experience. I highly recommend anyone running a small to medium company to connect with MSROI – they’ll tell you what they can do for you. They seem like good people, they love what they do and they respond to email and phone calls promptly. Thank you Morgan!
 
Todd Colchin | Arvada, Colorado, Owner, Colchin Automotive, Inc.
The SEO Jumpstart course was very comprehensive. The most valuable takeaway for me was the worksheet and other resources provided during each session. I’m excited to put this training into practice for my business and for my clients. Thanks!
 
Scott Michie | Brandon, FL, Founder & CEO, ArchiTech Software & Web Solutions, Inc.
Phil always has some great advice on things that I need help with, particularly Facebook and Google AdWords. I took a valuable seminar given by him yesterday. He literally laid out all the tactics in a worksheet. The only thing missing was how to accomplish the most important of these things if you have little time or budget. But even at that, he had some good advice on which of the tactics to execute first and how to do it. Good stuff. Thanks Phil.
 
Jon Garner | Costa Mesa, California, Marketing Consultant, Garner Communications
Your SEO webinar was a simply structured presentation with not too much time spent on selling me something. I also appreciated the examples/analogies. That helps for someone who’s new to SEO/online marketing.
 
Dusty Dorin | Atlanta, Georgia, Production Manager, Advantage Dealer Services
We know SEO is important, but haven’t had the time or resources to really dedicate. This webinar had some relatively easy steps that we can take.
 
Twilla Duval | Jefferson City, Missouri, VP of Internet Services, Central Bank
Phil’s webinar “The Local SEO Formula” was a treasure trove of information. The content was well presented and highly actionable. Whether you’re a small business owner or large enterprise manager you’ll walk away with information that’s game changing for your business. I highly recommend Main Street ROIs webinars and services.
 
Kelly Grove | New Jersey, Internet Marketing Manager, Quest Diagnostics
I just wanted to say how wonderful it’s been working with you. From your consummate professionalism, deep domain knowledge, patience with my ignorance and wonderful little touches like the hand-written thank you card, it’s been a true pleasure.
 
Frank Barbieri, Founder, Chief Memory Maker
The webinar on current SEO techniques was a very thorough review. It was great that it went from historical to current actionable steps to take.
 
Helga George | Santa Barbara, California, Owner/Copywriter, Plants Rule
If you hire them they will do all they can for you. Very responsive, very skilled at what they do. Highly recommend.
 
Harry Johnson, Renters Warehouse
Phil’s webinar, “Top 10 AdWords Mistakes,” was incredibly informative! Every time I hear or read something that Phil writes, I learn something useful relating to some aspect of my business. I highly recommend not only this webinar, but any other webinar Phil has done!
 
Joseph Palmer | Oklahoma City, OK, Sales Manager, Bott Radio Network
Phil is very knowledgable, thorough, and presents it in an “easy to understand” way.
Ryan Greenwood, Frenzy Designs
Phil, does a consistently awesome job with my Adwords Campaign with any budget. He is very easy to work with and is always reachable to address my concerns with his tech savvy. Phil, has a first class operation that has gained my respect from my first conversation with him. I give Phil and his team my highest recommendation.
 
Dr. Kenneth R. Eye II | Harrisonburg, VA, Exceptional Smiles Family Dentistry
I found Main Street ROI . . . very professional. They not only audited our website but improved it in terms of SEO.
 
Franziska Dooley | Clarence Town, Australia, Safety Check Shop
We are very impressed with Mainstreet ROI, They have been most professional and transparent in their approach. Despite us being far away from them in Australia, I have never felt the distance because of their great communication and regular updates. Choosing Mainstreet ROI for our SEO services has been a great experience. Would definitely recommend Manistreet ROI to everyone.
 
Venkatesh Shivaramakrishnan, Poetry Designs
I have been using Main Street ROI since mid 2013 and I have been pleasantly suprised and overwhelmed by the outstanding professional service that Phil and his dedicated team have delivered in all of the services I have used. I run a Personal Training Fitness business in Melbourne Australia and have had mixed results from several marketers who promise so much and deliver so little.

I requested Phil’s services with Local SEO and within months I was able to get to the top of the first page within my local area and since then the website has been my number 1 source of leads. But even better than lead generation the quality of the leads are red hot customers ready to sign up. Previously we would get leads but they were not very good and more or less time wasters. Now we are regularly getting hits on the website and converting leads into clients into our program. Our service is very specialised and the website target marketing is crucial for us to get right and this is where Phil not only set up and ran our campaigns at the start to give me a real good start but also taught me the valuable tools and strategies to look after the campaigns on my own afterwards.

I have recommended Main Street ROI to many of my business colleagues and I continue to use their services with everything from Google Adwords to SEO and build a stronger and more secure business online. Thanks Phil
 

Nick Jack | Melbourne, Australia, Health, Wellness and Fitness
I am a current client of Main Street ROI. I own a real estate title agency and my business is regulated.

I hired Main Street ROI to complete an SEO tune-up and I more than made my money back from just one title/closing transaction client. The client found me online and after speaking with the wife briefly on the phone, she decided to use my services.

I would definitely refer Main Street ROI to my closest friend. They are extremely knowledgeable, responsive and most importantly, will get you results.
 

Jennifer Cassels | Green Brook, NJ, President of Park Avenue Title Agency
The Main Street team knows their stuff! They are professional, experienced and easy to work with. As a small business owner, I would never be able to compete online without the intelligent suggestions and implementation I’ve received from Main Street.
   
Doug Greenhut, Bulk Book Store
Phil is very clear in explaining the workshop content and organizes it in a way that it is easily understood. His worksheets are great tools! This is the second training I have registered for and found both workshops very helpful on how I approach SEO and social marketing.
 
Barbara Lysenko | New Jersey, Director & Co-Founder, Kids Music Round
Phil Frost is great. Very Knowledgeable and clear when he presents.
 
Emily Krueger | Pewaukee, Wisconsin, Marketing Coordinator, Goff’s Entreprises, Inc.
Your SEO webinar was really useful and easy to understand.
  
Dylan Mitchell | Cannes, France, Business Development Manager, Worldwide Property Company
Pete and Phil have been extremely helpful. I struggled for months to set up an effective Adwords campaign. Their Adwords Success Formula course breaks it down into simple steps that really teaches you the fundamentals to building out simple or complex campaigns. Pete and Phil also do a great job at making themselves available and accessible for any questions. Overall I would highly recommend Main Street ROI to any small business owner or junior marketer.
   
Cortney Thorley | San Francisco, CA, Marketing Manager
For common-sense marketing strategies — that are easy to implement for the small business owner — Main Street ROI is outstanding. They are responsive, patient, and excellent teachers. Phil really knows his stuff, and just as importantly… “knows” the small business owner’s daily challenges and limitations.

FYI, I’m a 30-year marketing veteran who’s always trying to keep current… and, I learn and benefit from every Main Street ROI interaction. You do a great job of communicating effectively, and making “hard things” simple.
   

Kevin Kinsella | Chicago, IL, Lead Consultant
Your training provides a great foundation for local SEO fundamentals. Highly recommended.
   
Emily Babisz, Empire Today
I am the owner of a small business who handles most of our online presence myself. I needed someone who can help me help myself. After searching fruitlessly and finding only people who want to take total control of my online presence (not what I wanted), I found Phil.

Phil is extremely knowledgeable about SEO, advertising/marketing, and maintaining a healthy online presence. I have been subscribing to his newsletter (email) for a while, and love the tips and info. I really got a lot out of the webinars I watched as an Inner Circle Member. I recently hired Mainstreet ROI to conduct an SEO Audit for a very reasonable price, and was very favorably impressed with the analysis and the suggested next steps of action to fix the issues. I plan to get him to audit my Google Adwords campaign next, and to get him to help me out with various other things.

Phil and his staff are very attentive, provide good analysis, and have lots of integrity. Hard to say about lots of the Internet Marketing “experts” I have come across in my life…

Thanks, Phil!   

Judson Bobo, Everything Billiards
I’m a small business owner with limited cash flow during my slow season for local Residential/Commercial Moving. However, am blessed by information that we continue to receive from Main Street ROI via free webinars, discount offers, email tips etc. I brag about you guys all the time! If it were not for your guidance, not sure where we would be.
   
Sabrina Scrivens | Murfreesboro, TN, Peoples Choice Moving & Storage LLC
I want to thank you once again for your work and assistance you’ve given. As I’ve noted previously, it’s been great to have reasonable-cost access to leading ideas and practices!

Jessica Day | Oceanside, CA, Western Regional Sales Manager, Oxbow Activated Carbon, LLC.
As a former trainer of BusinessWeek trainers, I know superb training and service when I see it. Phil Frost and Peter Kennedy at Main Street ROI provide some of the best trainings, updated info, and client-centered responsiveness that I’ve ever experienced. If you want to learn and keep up your expertise in SEO, Adwords, and local search, consider these folks your guru!

Francis Andrew | Ashland, OR, Consultant at AH&A, Inc.
Your training provides good, simple advice that I don’t think most small business owner are following (but should be).
   
Zach Parker
Phil Frost knows what he’s talking about when it comes to online marketing. Even better, he understands and respects the fact that today’s small business 100 percent needs to see positive return on investment (ROI) on marketing dollars spent. If you want to see more ROI from your online marketing and be able to measure and track results, check out Main Street ROI, Phil and his team are at the top of their game!
   
Andrew Freiburghouse | Los Angeles, CA, Creator of Pronto Tax Class & Enrolled Agent (E.A.)
Thank you for the SEO recommendations. Your frank analysis of our deficiencies and strengths is just what we needed after 7 years. Thanks also for the phone call support and responses to our numerous emails. I’m very happy we decided to use your services in spite of the big timezone difference between Australia and New York. It was well worth the investment and we have recommended your services to many of our colleagues.
   
Chris Browne | Wheeler Heights, Australia, Owner & Editor of RatesMate.com.au
If Phil Frost can turn me into a competent digital marketer for my business in a matter of weeks his program can help ‘anybody’. I highly recommend his up to date and no nonsense approach to making the most of online opportunities.
   
Tim Purcell | Sydney, Australia, Marketing Manager
Phil is our go to guy when it comes to PPC and landing page strategies. He is specifically helping my new company turn a profit on our Adwords campaigns. Phil is one of the smartest people I’ve worked with. He helps build financial models, put pricing strategies together, better understand our market, improve our sales funnel, and much much more! I’m really glad we found Phil. I’m more confident in my own business with his help.
   
Rishi Shah | San Francisco, California, CEO of Flying Cart, LLC
When I launched my private practice, I had no idea how to market my business online. Cashflow was tight, and my business experience was limited. Main Street ROI guided me through my first Adwords campaign and in 2 days I had 34 scheduled visits. It was exactly what I needed to get my business off to the right start.
 
Dr. Sean O’Grady | San Francisco, California, Owner of Chiropractic Practice
WOW! I love your training. You have done an excellent job putting it together in a usable way.
 
Thomas LeBlanc | Baker City, OR
SEO Jumpstart helped me get my SEO strategy in place, and I started seeing higher rankings pretty quickly. For years I had been researching and incorporating keywords, but it wasn’t until Phil and Pete showed me what I was doing wrong that I actually made progress. They have so much information, and they’re so good at explaining it and helping me apply the lessons. It’s the most personalized, fun SEO training I’ve ever taken.
 
Stacey Morris | New York, NY, Focus Copywriter
Prior to taking the AdWords Success Formula course, I took a stab at AdWords on my own. To say the results were disappointing is putting it mildly. I originally reached out to Main Street ROI to see if they could recommend a PPC management company. They made a good argument that a) I could probably do it myself; and b) even if I did eventually hire someone I should know what I’m doing. So I took the course. Well worth it! We saw our first sale within 2 days of launching our campaigns and profit within a week.

As for the course, it is organized in well thought-out blocks that build upon one another. They are presented clearly and without jargon. In addition to the videos, the spreadsheet provided for everything from selecting keywords to creating ads is an amazing tool.

At this point, I find creating and optimizing campaigns fun!
 

Andreas Thomson, Marketing Manager
Thank you Phil for arranging to speak to me via Skype here in Australia where we are 14 hours ahead of your time.

This was the first time we had talked directly with each other over our website and the improvements that must be made.

The mini survey provided by you before the discussion was helpful for us both. I was struck over how quickly you were able to comprehend our circumstances; then to provide ideas that will immediately enhance our website to convert people from just looking at our very general home page to something that will interest people immediately in different fields of activity. These ideas will potentially increase sales to a number of different streams of users. In 30 minutes, you conveyed to me the expertise you have developed to get to the core of the matter speedily and so provide real help in a short time, all much appreciated
 

Rob Thomas | Managing Director, www.ezyshaid.com
I started working with Main Street ROI on the SEO side of our web site. We have had a noticeable improvement in phone calls. We are now also working on the Google AdWords side. Thank You for the team at Main Street ROI. Mike
 
Mike Schmitt | Broomfield, Colorado, Aquaserve4U
About a month ago, I ordered The Local SEO Formula and started going through the steps. I’ve noticed my Google rankings moving up and right now I’m at the #1 position for my most important keyword in my area. I’m now receiving phone calls from my listing, and I just started working on a case that came in directly from Google Places. This case has more than paid for the program!
 
Barney Connaughton | Chula Vista, California, Family Law and Divorce Mediation Office of Barney Connaughton
Before I went through AdWords Success Formula, I tried 2 things. First we outsourced our PPC campaign to other company. All they did was waste around $5,000 of our money with almost zero results. Then I gave the task to a “marketing expert “inside of our company to do this job and it was also very poor. After that I decided to learn all about AdWords on my own and purchased this training.

At first I was not sure exactly what to expect, however all the parts in the training are explained very very well. Everything is done step by step easy to understand and easy to apply.

The best part is AdWords Success Formula does not only teach you about technical parts of PPC campaigns and AdWords, but you can also find lots of very interesting marketing tricks inside which can also help other aspects of your business.

I would recommend AdWords Success Formula to every business owner that is interested in AdWords…even if you wish to outsource this, you should know what that other company will be doing with your money.

Also the support is great. One of the best thing is that when you actually SET UP your campaign, they check it out personally and tell you what you did good and where you sucked. Super useful.
 

Mitja Mirtic, CEO of Goolets.com
Your training is very informative and broken into “doable” steps. You suggested some great tools to use and showed how to use them.
 
Craig Cameron, hockeycanada.ca
The “Introduction to Social Media” video training is a great social media overview that comes along with notes and a worksheet taking you step by step through what you need to do.
 
Noland Anderson | Los Angeles, California, Publisher, PostProduction.com
Just a few weeks ago, when people were searching for a dentist in our area, our practice was nowhere to be found. I purchased The Local SEO Formula to learn how to improve my Google rankings, I’ve followed all of the steps, and it’s already working! Previously we were on the 3rd page of Google for our keyword terms, and now we’re on the first page for most of our keywords, including dentist, dental office, and dental care.
 
Adriana Settenhoffer DDS | Fair Lawn, New Jersey, Fair Lawn Dental Care
I had doubts this course would show me anything I didn’t already know because I had done a lot of local SEO research already. But I’m so happy I decided to give it a shot. I now have a complete understanding of how to get my Google Places pages ranked #1 and in just a few months I’ve seen great results!
 
Chris Azzari, Founder of Cornerstone SEO
AdWords Success Formula is a great course! It was very helpful and action driven. The Ad Planner is a great tool for streamlining, planning and implementing a successful Adwords campaign. I recommend this course to everyone doing PPC on Adwords — even if you’ve been doing PPC for years, you will learn something new.
 
Cristina Zapata | Providence, RI, Marketing Director, Xzito
The Local SEO Formula is a great name for the product. However, I would have named it The Complete Local SEO Formula. I have purchased a lot of products from Internet marketers, and most of them did not deliver what they promised. However, I was really surprised that The Local SEO Formula delivered what the advertisement stated and so much more. The information includes good quality videos that give step-by-step instructions on what to do, where to do it, and how to do what you need to do to get ranked on the first page of Google. I could go on and on, but I will let you discover for yourself. I give the product two thumbs up because I am implementing the techniques and strategies, and they are working for me and my business.
 
Jum Ra’Oof | Fayetteville, Georgia
After just 1 month, I started ranking in Google and I’ve already gained 2 new clients! I would recommend The Local SEO Formula to anybody who’s just getting started with online marketing. I’ve already made my money back from these 2 clients.
 
Sharlene Alviar | Kamuela, HI, Massage Therapist
Excellent marketing firm with friendly employees and expert knowledge in all aspects of digital marketing. Would highly recommend to any business.
 
Michael Bradley | Joliet, Illinois, Best Hybrid Batteries
Your training is worth every penny! I felt a little overwhelmed with keyword research and picked up several good tips during the training. Also, learning the latest tools and settings was helpful.
 
Louise Wong, achinglaw.com
Before I started working with Main street ROI, my website was nowhere to be found. I knew there were potential clients searching for my services, but since no one could find my website, I was not getting any new business. Main Street ROI showed me how to improve my website and gave me other strategies that caused my website to be noticed. Today, my website is the very first listing for many keywords and I’m getting phone calls every day from prospective clients. I highly recommend Main Street ROI to any business owner seeking to increase its business from internet exposure.
 
Peter Roach | Syosset, New York, Principal of Peter T. Roach & Associates, P.C.
Took The Local SEO Formula, very simple to understand and use. I was so glad somebody gave me something that would help me and my customers. I have spent the last few months working to cut through all the stuff out on the web and Phil gets it! Well formatted and willing to share his knowledge and tools. I actually sent him an Email with a question and he answered right away. Thanks again.
 
Chad Stewart | Punta Gorda, FL, Log In Marketing Solutions
Very professional and personal service. It was a pleasure coordinating with Phil and see the positive results it brought to our marketing efforts.
 
Jessica Agosto | New York, NY, Virgo Business Centers
Phil always is so clear and informative. Every time I attend one of Phil’s webinars I learn something that I can use in my business.
 
Sally Orcutt, stretch4success.com
AdWords Success Formula taught me how to take a pay per click program all the way from research to execution. I would recommend this course to small business owners and to marketing agencies who are looking to expand their service offerings.
 
Nick Robinson | Philadelphia, PA, Director of Client Services Social Media HQ
If you are looking for the best and fastest way to do Local SEO then you want to use Main Street ROI’s Local SEO Formula 2.0. Unlike other products on the market, The Local SEO Formula really does deliver a lot of helpful information. Citations are the key to getting Local SEO to work for you and in The Local SEO Formula there is an Excel spreadsheet tool that helps you organize all of your citation submissions as well as your business listing information plus much much more. The course is pretty straightforward and directly to the point. I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in business and looking to get locally ranked in Google.
 
Mihail Mitov | Surrey, BC CANADA, Deon Designs
As a consultant I wasn’t sure if this would work or not. As it turns out there is a lot of good information to learn in The Local SEO Formula. Entering all of the information needed is not as clear cut as most people seem to think. The course is pretty straight forward & I highly recommend it. In just a few months, I have attracted 5 new customers so far and those customers have already started attracting new customers. You would be nutty if you did not give The Local SEO Formula a try.
 
Moshe Handler | Brooklyn, NY, Consultant
Thanks for everything, you guys do a great job!
 
Gordon Conwell | Flourtown, Pennsylvania, American Term Life Insurance
The Local SEO Formula which I purchased works great! It was only 4 days ago I purchased the product from you and now as of tonight I made the first page in my market which is York, Pennsylvania. I realize I still have a lot of work to do but WOW I am excited that in such a short time that I made the first page I am now #3 which hey not shabby and I am confident that #1 is within reach.
 
Bill Neff | York, Pennsylvania, Owner of Neff’s Lock, Safe & Security, Inc.
Before I met Phil, I was trying to learn AdWords myself and I was getting frustrated and overwhelmed with all the info available. Now, whenever I have questions about my campaigns, I talk to Phil. He has the ability to take complex marketing topics and explain them so anyone like me can understand and implement quickly.
 
Steve Little | Gilroy, California, CEO of Zero Limits, LLC
About 3 months ago I began to take steps to improve my online visibility. After my business went through the verification process with Google, the tele-marketers started calling every hour it seemed, offering this and that promising results. After about 2 1/2 months of trying different products, I became disillusioned realizing that these people didn’t know what their talking about. Nobody seemed to be on the same page. Frustrated, I really started to worry. Somehow I stumbled upon Main Street ROI. I decided to take a chance. I’ve only been with Main Street ROI for about 2 weeks but I’ve been impressed with everything about this company from the start. Any technical problem I’ve had or any question I have asked, Phil has been right with a quick email response. The whole program proceeds with clarity and great detail and if you have any questions about anything, ask. I highly recommend this program to anyone. I wish more companies would follow this pattern for their business success. Quality and customer care first. It makes the world a better place.
 
Tim Hellane | Hagerstown, MD, Owner of Musician’s Quest
I stumbled upon The Local SEO Formula by mistake while doing research, but I’m so glad I did. There’s a lot of information available about how to get found on Google that speaks in theories and broad strokes, but sometimes I just don’t have time for broad strokes. I need specific step-by-step tasks to complete so I can get the job done and move on. That’s what The Local SEO Formulaa did for me. There is a real time commitment required to go through all the steps, but it’s an efficient use of time, which is something every business owner needs to consider. I will recommend this product to my clients and partners.
 
Julie Umnus | Chicago, IL, Owner of Artisan, Inc.
The Local SEO Formula is an excellent resource that I would personally recommend for those of you who want a step-by-step guide on getting your business ranked in the top local search results. The SEO team here at ChooseWhat.com, has reviewed this video and found it to be an excellent resource for guiding you through the Local SEO process
