Find Local Customers Online was founded by me … John G. Kelly. I am an internet expert and a bestselling author.
I combine classical marketing training with the knowledge and experience gained in the trenches.
I am a native of the UK and rose through the marketing ranks of Thomas Cook, Smith & Nephew, and Colgate Palmolive. Colgate moved me to New York and then to San Juan Puerto Rico. No small assignment as this was Colgate’s 6th largest profit-earning subsidiary.
In 1988 I moved to Boston and spent 9 years with Bausch and Lomb.
In 1997 I started my own marketing consulting and speaking business. I saw my mission as helping businesses connect with potential customers to generate more leads, sales, and profits.
I have worked with a wide range of clients: enterprise-level healthcare and software developers, medical software vendors, real estate agents, sunroom installers, aquarium maintenance, and home repair/remodelers.
I wrote and published my #1 bestseller “Stress-Free Internet Marketing for Businesses: 7 Steps to Grow your Profits and Financial Peace of Mind” in 45 days. It reached #1 in 3 highly competitive categories. It is still ranked well. Its longevity comes from being packed with actionable, tried, and tested techniques.
I live in Wayland, Massachusetts with my partner Louise. I love to play soccer, act in community theatre, tap dance, and foster kittens.
Useless trivia: I like the smell of gasoline and skunk yet I distrust sushi, tapioca, and fruit-flavored beer and tea.
