Hi, my name is Daryl Whicker, founder of Local Top Gun Marketing, a North Carolina Internet Marketing, Search Engine Optimization, Web Site Design and Development Firm, serving local and national business owners.
My business goals are to help serious action takers dominate their local markets through the internet. My passion is to help small, medium and large business owners understand the methodology of internet marketing campaigns and how to reach your goals through several successful online marketing channels.
I’m a native of North Carolina and have lived here all of my life. I started out working in textiles when I was 16 years old. After working in the textile industry for 9 years I felt like I needed a change so I tried other opportunities and ended up in sales. I sold cell phones and was very successful. My last sales job was through our local cable company where I went door to door. I found out real quick that companies that hire sales reps want you to treat people like a number and I couldn’t do that because people are not numbers and I don’t like be treated like a number either.
I believe in building long lasting relationships and helping others get what they want and need without rushing them through the process. In 2007 I had the desire to learn about the internet. At first I was overwhelmed and didn’t know where to start or even what questions to ask. When I had questions I would ask people who I thought were at the top of their internet marketing game but no one would answer my questions. So I rolled up my sleeves and through research and literally spending thousands of hours in front of my computer taking online courses and applying what I had learned, then I was able to put the pieces of the puzzle together.
In January of 2011 I decided to start my own business in the custom website and online marketing industry. The online classes that I’ve taken include Web video marketing, Keyword research and how to effectively help businesses get found on the internet, I’ve learned how to generate leads and turn those leads into paying clients, optimize local listings, write articles and web copy, social media marketing including Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and LinkedIn, optimize websites and social media, link building, custom website development and design, Search Engine Optimization and Search Engine Marketing, pay per click campaigns for Google and Facebook. I help local, small businesses too because they make up 68% of America. I can help any size business.
I’m proud to say that I’m an active BNI member (Business Network International) and I’m also a member of the Piedmont Club in Winston Salem, NC. Through Business Network International I’ve learned how to build new relationships with like minded business owners and to nurture and build deeper relationships with the many people that I network with.
I’ve always loved helping people get what they want and need. This is what drives me to help business owners throughout the world. Having a custom website is the foundation for every business. In my years of experience I’ve helped my clients meet and exceed their marketing objective goals for their projects.
