Bruce Porter Jr: Hi beautiful, what are we doing today?
Emme Porter: Also what Bruce is doing, is buying this virtual real estate on the internet, and using it. So I think he would also like to promote his techniques with SEO and the Social Networks Manager™, which is really where his talent and passion is.
Bruce Porter Jr: ..and how it all integrates. You know we have the reality TV show, and of course we want the reality TV show to be a great hit, but realistically, if what we do it use it to brand our clients then it serves it’s purpose. So we want to use all these different methods of media in order to brand ourselves and our clients. Because keep in mind that the branding and publicity is very important to us, not only for getting new clients, but also getting new models. We have thousands of models on staff and it takes a lot of SEO to get them in here.

Bruce Porter Jr: (speaking about Sports Buzz) ..for companies like them that have an android and Iphone app, marketing companies like us are very attractive. We not only staff the models for you, but we also promote you and get you in there on the first page of Google. If you Google “Sports Buzz Launch Event DC” of course you will see us, and the picture are filed and everything.
Emme Porter: He works tirelessly. How Bruce likes to describe the internet is that it’s alive, and so it’s a constant thing you have to work on all the time because it’s like a living breathing animal.
Bruce Porter Jr: SEO is one of those things that sometimes you’re really not sure why this happened or that happened. You just have to do so many things to get the results that you want. It’s a learning process. You know we’ve made mistakes too. Even a few months ago we made a big mistake and then you realize that is how that works and you have to work overtime to make up lost ground, but it is very effective… To go back to using the models, we take our models that are nationwide and do promotions, that is our business model. Then we use those models to promote ourselves and our clients. That is why when you Google us there are so many results and of course the name of the game is back links.
Emme Porter: Now that we have grown and are national company people use Google or Bing and they search for promotional models or trade show models and whoever is relevant is who the call first.
Bruce Porter Jr: As you know there is a huge difference if you appear on the first page of Google. It didn’t start off that way for us, there are a lot of companies out there who think they have the best promotional modelsor they are the best agency. People have been staffing models for years. It took a while to get there but we are now on the first page of Google for most of our key terms. That keeps the phone ringing and while word of mouth advertising is good, when large corporations hire promotional models, chances are they are going to hop on the internet and Google it, and call the first few people they see.
