Under the parties' agreement, Monster Offers will extend local search engine optimization (LSEO) service offerings to its clients. Through this new arrangement, Monster Offers will be offering unique marketing to those businesses that have previously relied on more traditional forms of paper-based advertising such as Yellow Pages, newspaper advertising and direct-mail. With this addition of services offered, these businesses can turn to Monster Offers to get help using online search engines in reaching out to consumers seeking particular products or services.  In today's world dominated by internet-based communications, this reflects a more direct, efficient and cost-effective way for businesses to reach out to their customer bases, and complements to the existing offerings of Mobile Marketing and analytical services provided by Monster Offers. .

According to a 2012 Citibank survey, small businesses are increasing their use of the Internet and social media platforms to connect with customers and grow their businesses, and Monster Offers is certain to position itself in the right place at the right time with this new partnership.  

The following core product offerings are components of a successful online marketing strategy and form the foundation of the Hozio product and service platform:

  • Creating a highly professional online presence that provides accurate information to prospective customers.
  • Assuring that companies will appear in desired search engine results when prospective customers search for their type of product or service.
  • Purchasing search terms so that businesses appear in desired or targeted placement positions during a consumer product search.
  • Applying advanced search engine optimization and listing techniques to localize small business reach and marketing spend.

"We have been waiting for the right time to partner with a company like Monster Offers, and we believe that this is definitely the opportunity we have been looking for. Their existing and growing client base of small and medium-sized businesses should benefit greatly from our new partnership," observed John Bosco, President of HOZIO. "We have an intimate understanding of how to utilize the Internet to drive new customer acquisition and incremental business, and see this as a  great value-added services that Monster Offers provides to its clients."

As part of the deal, Hozio is offering a free advisory service, providing clients with detailed analytics as to their current rankings with the big five search engines; Google, Yahoo, BING/MSN, Ask, AOL. Having a clear understanding of rankings ultimately helps businesses to take advantage of how the search engines actually work.  Also, Hozio will provide ongoing evaluation of the success of online marketing campaigns and will assist in the creation of long-term marketing strategies that provide immediate and sustainable results for the growing client base that Monster Offers is targeting.  

"Unlike traditional search engine optimization & search engine marketing," says Wayne Irving II, CEO of Monster Offers. "Hozio has something very special that provides precise and effective results.  Their clients love them, ours will too!"
