Marco Canada SEO digital marketing

“Digital marketing is something so special and so necessary in today’s business world.” – Marco Distefano

Local businesses are especially relying on digital marketing since the evolution of GeoTagging and Google Maps. When a tourist is walking around a new city and is in the mood for Thai food, what do they open? Google Maps. If your business isn’t showing up in the first 3 spots then you lost that customer. The thing is, it goes beyond that. It’s more than just the position of your business, it’s the rating. If you show up #1 but have a 2.5-star rating the potential customer goes to the next. It’s their own algorithm for finding the best place.
 
Marco has been a digital marketer and sales professional for over 15 years. He started his marketing journey by attending the marketing program at Algonquin College in Ottawa and throughout his career has worked with brands like IKEA, Novotel Hotels, SurveyMonkey, Zomato (previously UrbanSpoon) and CHEO
 
“It’s more than just attracting customers, you need to know how to convert and close them too.” 
 
After completing college, Marco founded a local startup called O-Town.ca, a nightlife directory website for college students to find drink deals and events in Ottawa, which was eventually acquired. He also put his digital marketing knowledge to use as a top producing real estate broker, selling over 65 homes a year and has freelanced as a website designer and digital marketer the entire time. 
 
 
Today, Marco is helping businesses acquire more customers using digital marketing, more specifically search engine optimization and local search. 
 
“SEO is the most organic form of digital marketing without having to pay-per-click. It is the greatest bang for your buck if you’re a business owner”.
