“It’s few companies and people you work with that exceed expectations and deliver results. Paul and the team at Bright Green Leadership did just that. We had dedicated numerous resources and thought we knew SEO strategies but could not break from the second page of Google. With Paul’s help we are now shown as a solid #3, our traffic has sky-rocketed, our leads are more qualified AND I’ve been able to reduce my paid keyword spend. I think of Paul as not just a vendor but as a partner in my business and seek his input in business decisions in the greater context of internet marketing. Thanks for all your work Paul!”
