SSD Inc. Announces New Local and Social Marketing Services

Houston, TX, March 26, 2012 – Server Side Design is proud to announce the launch of new online marketing services upLOCAL™ and upSOCIAL™. As of March 23, 2012, these services, exclusive to SSD, Inc., are available to clients to assist in increased overall online visibility. Users now have the added advantage to reach customers on an intimate level, creating an improved client-consumer relationship.

 “For local businesses that service and/or sell products to a local customer base, ranking high in local search results, primarily maps listings, is extremely important,” said James Ryan Cooper, SSD’s Director of New Technology. Cooper continued, “upLOCAL™ is designed to deliver a highly focused search solution that will allow local businesses to dominate map listings and effectively market their products and/or services to their local customers.” The localized online visibility allows Server Side Design clients to reach customers within their geographical area through calls and walk-ins, allowing for a greater ROI.

Services provided with upLOCAL™ include citation building, customer review posting assistance, link-building strategies, and local social networks presence. Through setup and optimization on Google Places, Bing Business Portal and Yahoo! Local Listings, Server Side Design clients have the added capability to reach more individuals within their local area.

A soft-launch at the beginning of 2012, allowed upSOCIAL™ to be tested by select Server Side Design clients. “upSOCIAL™ allows SSD to engage in two-way communication on our client’s behalf, creating a relationship of trust within the social community, said Roger Janik, Server Side Design principal and founder. “Posts are both relevant to the client, as well as their industry, this enables a client to be confident in the business’ abilities in the marketplace.”

As social networking continues to expand, the need for upSOCIAL™ services becomes more relevant. Facebook, Google+, YouTube, Twitter, LinkedIn and blogs have become avenues businesses utilize to engage customers. Through upSOCIAL™, SSD clients can not only market to new and existing customers, they can provide customer support, public relations and research and development for future endeavors. Results provided with upSOCIAL™ include improved search rankings, increased web traffic and conversions and monitoring of conversation regarding business services.

The launch of upLOCAL™ and upSOCIAL™ services seeks to elevate Server Side Design clients to industry leaders through social SEO. Current social media marketing options are available by contacting Server Side Design at 888.736. 2384 or visit SSD online at
