Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is essential for effective marketing. If your business isn’t on the first page of Google search results, you are losing money to your competitors. Local SEO, in particular, is critical to the success of modern businesses that must compete for customers within a specific geographic area. When area businesses transform their sites with an eye toward becoming top Daniel Island SEO performers, their efforts are translated directly into increased popularity, improved exposure and more sales. But business owners like you can’t do it alone. Doing local SEO right requires the help of a Daniel Island SEO firm like Mr. Marketing.
SEO isn’t a “set it and forget it” job. It’s an ongoing process that requires constant tweaking and a continuous education to keep up with the latest strategies. It’s my job – and my passion – to stay current with my knowledge and expertise when it comes to SEO, and I’m here to help you save time, stress and money, all while giving you the edge you need to maintain your company’s presence at the top of the first page of Google search results. I analyze the competition and my team works diligently to identify keywords that enhance the power and reach of your website considerably. Sure, most Daniel Island SEO consultants will make the same promises, but they can’t deliver the total local SEO package like Mr. Marketing can! Consider the current local SEO landscape: today’s best practices require business owners to attack SEO from a number of angles. Yes, completing and maintaining an accurate Google My Business (GMB) profile is crucial, but it only accounts for about 19% of a comprehensive local SEO strategy, according to moz.com. Link signals, on-page signals, citation signals and review signals all factor in significantly. And with social media become increasingly prominent, it’s important to consider social signals such as Facebook and Twitter engagement as key factors. We are Daniel Island’s experts in local SEO because we keep our skills and knowledge base sharp and up to date. However, our secret weapon is our ability to consult with business owners like you to determine exactly what makes your company unique and valuable to customers. We work hard to understand where you are coming from as a business owner, and our ability to discern the needs of your customer base gives us the “special sauce” that will ensure that people who want what your business offers can find you online easily.
I understand if you’re wary about hiring a Daniel Island SEO agency because of cost concerns. Running a business means minimizing losses wherever possible while keeping expenses down. But when you invest in a local SEO strategy, the return you can expect is considerable. When you enhance your site’s local SEO, you reach a targeted audience, hungry for what your business offers and actively searching for solutions.

For the first time ever, the South Carolina Aquarium is adding a haunted house experience to its fall festivities. The Haunted Trail will offer visitors the opportunity to get their fill of gills, chills and thrills as they traverse through spooky-themed rooms that are sure to give anyone a fright. The experience will be opening October 1 and will run through October 31.
Among the many innovative and frightening effects that will be found in the Haunted Trail, there will be a series of Scare Control sensors. Visitors who are daring enough are encouraged to wave their hand in front of the sensor to truly test their tolerance for all things scary.
The Haunted Trail will be the latest experience built fully in-house by the Aquarium’s talented exhibits team, following their most recent installation, “Monsters: From Micro to Mega.” The experience, creativity and craftiness of the three person team, combined with material donations from Buck Lumber and Building Supply, Inc. and Lowe's have made it possible to bring this haunting new experience to life.
Kevin Kampwerth, director of aquarium experience, is grateful for the generosity. “We love making our team’s ideas a reality and offering our guests fun and unique experiences, especially around the holidays. We had concerns that it would not be possible this year but thankfully, Buck Lumber [and Building Supply, Inc.] and Lowe’s stepped up with generous donations that have allowed us to create an experience guests will thoroughly enjoy.”
Haunted Trail will be available to all guests who visit the Aquarium and is included in the price of admission. It is meant to give chills and thrills to all who enter, so the Aquarium recommends a minimum age of eight years old and requires that all children under the age of 13 are accompanied by an adult. Social-distancing guidelines are still in place and will be enforced to ensure the safety and health of Aquarium guests and staff.

This spring as the COVID-19 pandemic took root, many residents found their green thumb and gardens sprouted up all over town. During stay at home orders, many residents started pandemic planting and preserving home-grown fruits and vegetables.
Growing fruits and vegetables is the perfect pandemic project, giving residents time outside to get some much needed Vitamin D, while still allowing social distancing.
Gabrielle Barnett, owner of Charleston Farm Fresh, the local company that delivers fresh farmers market items to residents, has always been an avid gardener but during the pandemic she started growing and giving more. Barnett shares her abundant bounty of everything from fresh berries to Belle peppers with friends and family.
Her children love being involved with the process of producing garden goodies.
“It definitely gave us something to look forward to. It’s exciting to watch a plant grow from a tiny seed into something beautiful you can eat. My children have always loved planting and picking vegetables in the garden since they were toddlers,” said Barnett.
“I grew a lot of lettuce because I was not comfortable eating it from the grocery store at the beginning of the pandemic. I did make a lot of tomato sauce to jar and freeze. I also started to plant kitchen scraps — leaks, celery, fennel, scallions, and lettuce. I just placed the root end of the vegetable in a glass cup of water and placed it in a sunny window. It would start to grow roots and I would then plant it in the garden outside,” she added.
Daniel Island’s favorite music maker, Kris Manning has been busy using her creative talents to grow lush vegetables and herbs in garden boxes. “I planted an enormous veggie and herb garden in raised beds and have been delighted with the results. I can’t wait for the fall new plantings to thrive,” she exclaimed.
The stay at home orders gave Daniel Island resident Brad Stanley time to focus on his garden. “I had more time to plan out my garden and tend to it. My youngest son helped me with tilling, planting, and picking. Gardening gave me an activity to do since we were homebound. I enjoyed going outside and working with my hands.”
His variety of vegetables included several types of tomatoes. His wife and daughter canned homemade salsa for future use. Throughout the season Stanley shared his fresh harvest with neighbors.
With four growing boys, Theresa Dennis doesn’t have a lot to freeze or have much left over to share. “With four hungry boys we eat what we grow quickly. I do share basil as it grows fast and I can’t use it all.”
Dennis uses a Tower Garden to grow lettuce, basil, cilantro, chives, tomatoes, peppers, spinach, and cucumbers year-round. The Tower Garden is a vertical growing system that doesn’t use soil. “It’s a simple and convenient way to be sure your produce is free of pesticides. It grows a lot faster than produce growing in the ground. The flavor is incredible because it’s so fresh.”
Longtime gardener Laura Sullivan owns Container Garden Concierge, a business that specializes in small gardens and container plantings. “People are always pleasantly surprised to learn that I grow all my fruits in veggies in containers and they can too!”
During the coronavirus crisis, she was able to devote time to tending her garden.
“This spring I grew kale, lettuces and Brussel sprouts,” she said. “This summer I’m growing tomatoes, okra, pole beans, basil, blackberries and blueberries.”
What her family doesn’t eat is shared with friends and neighbors.
Her children are involved in the process and love consuming the fruits of their labor.
“Over the summer my kids love going out first thing and eating the berries right off the vine,” Sullivan said. “We rarely have any that make it into the house. I love including my kids when I garden because they’re more likely to eat what we grow.”
Opioid suspected overdose rates in South Carolina remain 50 percent higher than this time last year, according to the South Carolina Department of Health and Environmental Control (DHEC). South Carolina rates reflect national trends of increased opioid overdoses throughout the pandemic. DHEC expects COVID-19 will contribute to an elevated risk of overdoses in the coming months.
The one bit of positive trending: DHEC notes that suspected overdose numbers have decrease since May.
A DHEC health advisory issued earlier this week offers preventive strategies for prescribers and prescription drug dispensers across the state to address increased opioid overdoses since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic.
"We closely monitor suspected opioid overdose reports in every county across the state and coordinate with prevention partners to support local response efforts,” said Emma Kennedy, director of DHEC's Division of Injury and Substance Abuse Prevention. “This collaborative effort enables state-level staff to engage county-level counterparts in high-burden areas to encourage targeted response efforts.”
Since March, South Carolina has seen a steady increase in suspected opioid overdoses and first responder Narcan? administrations over last year. In May alone, EMS personnel responded to an estimated 915 suspected opioid overdoses in South Carolina, the highest monthly number in the state’s history, and nearly twice that reported for May 2019. Year-to-date preliminary data suggests an upward trend in overdoses from both prescribed and illicitly manufactured substances and overdoses involving other drugs like benzodiazepines but is not conclusive.
"Even in these times when we've had to hit 'pause' on so many parts of everyday life, treatment is still available throughout the state,” said Lee Dutton, Chief of Staff for the South Carolina Department of Alcohol and Other Drug Abuse Services (DAODAS). “Our local service providers are delivering effective and safe care for patients via telephone and telehealth in areas where on-site services are reduced or eliminated during the COVID-19 crisis.”
Dutton emphasized that treatment services are available in South Carolina through DAODAS’ system of state-licensed and nationally accredited service providers. For information on how to access treatment in our state, call 803-896-5555, or if you are experiencing substance use issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic, call the 24/7 support line at 1-844-SC-HOPES.
DHEC, DAODAS and other organizations have additional resources available to learn more about opioid misuse and overdose prevention:
"There are many resources available to help prevent, respond and treat opioid use disorder,” Kennedy said. “We encourage people to use these resources to learn about the risks of opioids, about opioid antidotes and where to get them, and learn how to help people struggling with opioid use disorder find the right care and treatment. Everyone has a role to play."
DHEC’s efforts to address opioid overdoses in South Carolina also include:
