Simply Be Found was created out of a marketing and advertising discussion between Rob and Dean. Rob posed the question of how well Dean’s business was being found online and mobile devices. Dean was confident he was being found because his business was seeing steady growth. So, Dean was standing in his screen-printing showroom and a voice search was done, and his business did not even make the list on his phone screen.
The proverbial gauntlet was thrown down and the question was raised: How many other small businesses are having the same issues of being not found by customers, and not knowing that there is a problem and how to fix it? After some research, the Simply Be Found platform was created to help small businesses. It is designed for simplicity and being straightforward. All business information and data are controlled and owned by the business owner or manager.
Also, it is affordable for any business size, no contracts are required, we have a month-to-month payment plan where you can cancel at any time. We want to earn your business membership every month. The idea of membership was developed because we want and need feedback from you to remain dynamic in the quest for better online advertising for entrepreneurs. Just an update, because of using the tools from Simply Be Found, Dean’s business is now seen in the number one slot of the local map three-pack.
As a member, we built our platform based on what your needs are, so we get something useful and not just another tool. We do not have a company board. Instead, we have members who propose and control new features and aim the direction to where we are heading.
Simply Be Found has a personal stake in our business member’s success first. Whether you are a small one-person startup or a larger multiple-location business, Simply Be Found is there to guide you to grow your customer base using the tools on the platform, informational videos and documents, and our team, always ready to support you. We would always want your feedback on what you think customers need to better find your business
Dean started his life as a baby, but seriously he has had an entrepreneurial spirit for most of his life starting in the second grade selling Creepy Crawlers out of his desk before and after school, moving on to mowing lawns, and delivering papers. While still in his teens, he also partnered up with a wrestling mat manufacturing company before his journey into the corporate world. He was a machinist, electronics technician, and after college a process engineer during his years in the corporate realm. However, like most entrepreneurial spirits he wanted to own and run his own business and has done so for close to 30 years. Dean has always worked in durable goods but has now partnered and ventured into the frontier of online services. He brings a unique skill set of tying the creations of our developers to a simple straightforward advertising experience for time-constrained business owners and managers.
Rob is a serial entrepreneur that has started over 10 online businesses in his career, helped start multiple startups, been on many different boards, and grew up in the small business world. He has been doing marketing and programming since 1995, which gives him a unique perspective on business. He is a fourth-generation entrepreneur, and that corporate life does not appeal to him. On top of being a Founding Member of Simply Be Found, he owns and operates his own marketing firm, Marketing By Rob.
