4rd Marketing

Moving Your Business Forward Online

A Local Atlanta Digital Marketing Agency & SEO Company

When I survey the Atlanta SEO and digital marketing space I see a need for a SEO Consultant that not only understands the technical aspects of SEO and Atlanta Local SEO but one that understands what it is like to run a business.  What was once highly technical, SEO is now a foundational piece of any Digital Marketing Agency.  With my experience in running my own Atlanta small business as well as my development background I feel we are the best Atlanta SEO company to work with.

Many of the companies are actually not local at all and are simply targeting our tech rich and internet savvy businesses here.  While the business can be global there is often a great opportunity to capitalize on local prospects.

The 4RD Marketing Story

Atlanta Digital Marketing AgencyIn the beginning…

Since the internet has been available to the public, Joshua Jarvis has been online trying to figure out how it works.  While at college at Georgia Tech, Joshua completed web development contracts and digital marketing (of course back then, they just grouped all the online community into “web designers”).  Around 2002, something called the “dot com” bubble burst and Joshua found it much harder to find these contracts.   Instead of changing industries completely, Joshua founded Jarvis Team Realty as well as an e-commerce import store.

As a real estate professional (and to a lesser extent the ecommerce business), Joshua learned what it means to be a small business owner and eventually what it means to have employees and co-workers that count on you as their provider.   During this time Joshua leveraged his digital marketing skills in the Atlanta area to be his lead generation source for his businesses.

Joshua became well known in the real estate industry for his technical abilities and was asked to be a speaker at Keller Williams conferences as well as the national conference, Xplode.

If there’s one word that defines Joshua, it’s growth.  He’s constantly trying to improve himself, whether it’s spiritually, physically or entrepreneurially.  Ultimately, this growth led Joshua to be a consultant to small businesses.

4RD Marketing is born.

Joshua Jarvis - 4rd MarketiingAt the time, Jarvis Team Realty’s slogan (still is) “Moving Families Forward.”  It only made sense for the marketing company’s name to be 4RD (Foward) Marketing, with a very similar purpose, “Moving Businesses Forward.”     (Incidentally, Heroic Event, Joshua’s non-profit’s “slogan” is “Moving Purpose Forward.”)

4RD Marketing truly has one purpose and that’s to help it’s clients achieve their goals, and we use a variety of marketing techniques to do this.

Not a Typo, Local SEO is a separate discipline altogether. For local business, local seo is the low hanging fruit often because it means competing with local competitors on Google Maps vs national competitor for “keywords.”  As a digital marketing agency, this is one the biggest missed opportunities we see for small businesses in Atlanta.
