My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Justin Sanger, Founder and CEO of SMBchain. Justin is a serial entrepreneur who’s dedicated his professional life to solving the marketing challenges facing small businesses. This is Justin’s second appearance on the show.

He founded LocalLaunch back in 2003. LocalLaunch capitalized on the massive shift from print to digital. I started my career at LocalLaunch and I was captivated by Justin’s foresight then and I still find him to be one of the most fascinating people in the industry.

What’s he doing with SMBchain?

Justin looks at the promise of Web3 and blockchain technology as the next big frontier for innovation that can improve people’s lives.

Crypto, blockchain, web3, NFTs – these are some of the most popular topics on social media. There are skeptics, there are people investing large sums of money into it, and there are plenty of people who don’t get it. I’ve wanted to have a conversation like this one for a while now but I needed someone with Justin’s level expertise to do it right.

This episode isn’t only about web3, it’s also about how Justin is positioning SMBchain to solve a major problem for smbs. In short, he thinks SMBs should own their own data online and he’s on a quest to make sure that they can.

Grab something cold to drink and join me for a conversation with Justin Sanger. We’ll talk about the enormous potential of web3, he’ll tell me about SMBchain’s “proof of business” concept, and we’ll spend a little time talking about how SMBs can regain their authenticity online.

My guest on this week’s episode of Suds & Search is Alex Alexakis, Founder of PixelChefs.

There’s a recurring topic that comes up on industry blogs and on SEO Twitter – the relationship between SEOs and web developers. Long story short, it’s often a challenging relationship to navigate. SEOs complain that their changes never get implemented. Web developers complain that SEOs are annoying. It’s often a fraught relationship but both pieces have to work in order for a client to experience any kind of success.
