Best SEO in Charlotte or not?

Best SEO in Charlotte or a scam?

Best SEO in Charlotte

Does a company offer the “BEST SEO IN CHARLOTTE” or is it a scam?  There are so many people offering SEO, website design, social media marketing and online marketing on the internet today- who do you trust? Which ones are just novices- fresh out of class- just wanting your money?

It’s rare that I get really upset about something, but there are so many deceitful people in the SEO and online marketing industry- sometimes I just need to vent …and, it’s important to teach you how to protect yourself from these people! If you’d like a copy of my ebook on Internet Scams- click here.

The most recent scam I have experienced is a man, out of England, who teaches an online class. He tells his students to list themselves as “experts” near the end of class, encourages the students to all leave fake references for each other on LinkedIn (which they copy onto their websites!)

This particular student:

  • Backdated the founding of their business, by using an old business name- now claiming, on day ONE, six years of experience

o    The funny part, with this is that she said she founded her business 3 years before the teacher founded his business (that taught her the class!)

  • Posted the fake references from fellow students on her website.

o    How to check this- just go to their LinkedIn profile and click on the reference- you will actually be able to make a list of students that just finished this man’s course

This sort of business, based on false promised, lies and deceitfulness will never be successful long-term; lying is never an option to begin a legitimate business….Simply unbelievable.

What to look for in a legitimate company:

  • Years of experience
  • No contracts! You use their services as long as you are satisfied.
  • References. (Genuine, real references from clients who have received services from that company.)
  • Exclusivity. Companies that offer their services to everyone in your market will never help you get ahead.

Not many of you know that I became interested in the online marketing business because I had several people ask me for help. They saw the work I had done on my own website, The Blended and Step Family Resource Center, and my years of work online, and they wanted help with their websites, social media and wanted to grow their businesses and practices. I was a best selling author, social media guru, and highly respected counselor- but would never have considered myself an SEO expert or would have the audacity to put “Best SEO in Charlotte” on my website.

I helped two medical practices for free- then realized that I could found a business based on my social media, online marketing, and SEO skills- BUT, I knew I needed to offer the very best for my clients. I went back and took more classes, was mentored for months, THEN- I offered my services AT NO CHARGE to a medical practice. (Actually, I bartered with them for Lasik Eye Surgery for 3 months of online marketing.) I received fantastic care and 20/20 vision due to the expertise of Dr. Ivan Mac, and Metrolina Eye Associates received 3 months of my best online marketing skills. Here is the result:

“We have been very satisfied with SCD Consulting Services online marketing services. We have seen impressive results and we are reaching our goals for the search engine rankings for our keywords. Her services more than pay for themselves.”  Top qualities: Great Results, Expert, High Integrity

Ivan Mac MD and CEO, Metrolina Eye Associates

When you do an excellent job- and produce results- you don’t have to lie or deceive.

Trust your online marketing, SEO, social media, reputation management and more to a company you can trust!  It doesn’t have to be my company, heaven knows there are enough large and small companies all over Charlotte and the United States. Some provide great services, and some, like the one listed above- just jumped into the industry as “Experts” – and want to cheat their way to your business.

I challenge those companies to work your way to a legitimate business- it may mean giving some business way, or bartering- but prove your skills legitimately- don’t dirty my field of expertise with your lies. There are so many good companies out there that are legitimate.

Laser Resurfacing – Charlotte, NC

Choosing a provider to provide BOTOX® injections

One of the most popular ingredients for smoothing furrows and wrinkles is BOTOX®.  This medication is used to treat crow’s feet, wrinkles, and frown lines.  Used for many years, BOTOX® injections may be offered by many clinics, spas and doctors’ offices and it is really important that only a trained and certified medical professional do these injections.  BOTOX® is a drug and should not be administered by anyone other than a trained, specialized professional.  In Charlotte NC, Dr. M. Sean Freeman administers BOTOX® injections to those patients he feels will benefit.

Choosing the right BOTOX® provider

Considered the best facial plastic surgeon in the region, Dr. Freeman is double board-certified and has more than twenty years of experience.  Dr. Freeman meets with every patient to evaluate their facial skin and bone structure and determine if they can benefit from BOTOX® injections.  The best candidates for BOTOX® injections are those who have dynamic wrinkles which are formed by repeated movement of the facial muscles

Performing the BOTOX® procedure

When he performs a BOTOX® injection, Dr. Freeman injects a very small amount of BOTOX® into the facial muscles which are responsible for the wrinkles.  BOTOX® then relaxes these effectively diminishing or completely eliminating lines and furrows.  It may take several days to see the effect of the BOTOX®.

Dr. Freeman is extensively trained in BOTOX® injections and has many years of experience using the drug to diminish or eliminate deep wrinkles on the face and neck.

If you are considering BOTOX® to improve the appearance of wrinkles, frown lines or furrows on your face, your best choice for a provider is Dr. Freeman, Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon.

The facts about teen rhinoplasty surgery

Teens request rhinoplasty surgery more than any other facial plastic surgery procedure.  They may desire the procedure for a number of reasons, including changing the shape or size of their nose, balancing their facial features or repairing a breathing or respiratory problem.  Dr. M.

Desired outcomes from teen rhinoplasty surgery

Since rhinoplasty surgery refines the shape of the nose, bringing it into balance with the other facial features, teen rhinoplasty can be especially helpful for restoring a teen’s self-confidence at the same time improving their appearance.  Rhinoplasty patients, especially younger teen patients should always have clear, realistic goals and a clear understanding of just what is possible with teen rhinoplasty surgery.

Consultation with Dr. Freeman

Before any teen rhinoplasty procedure, Dr. Freeman will meet with both the teen and their parents to discuss the details of the procedure and evaluate the teen for surgery.  Dr. Freeman will perform the teen rhinoplasty surgery in his state-of-the-art operating suite at his Charlotte NC clinic.

The teen rhinoplasty procedure

During the procedure, Dr. Freeman will make a small incision within the nose allowing Dr. Freeman access and visibility into the internal structure.  Most of Dr. Freeman’s patients do not need nasal packing and will see most of the swelling and bruising disappear within ten days.

Dr. M. Sean Freeman is Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeon. His expertise and skill make him Charlotte’s best choice for teen rhinoplasty surgery.

Lip Augmentation

Considering lip enhancement

Lip enhancement or augmentation increases the size of your lips and can reduce the appearance of fine wrinkles around your mouth. In Charlotte NC, Dr. M. Sean Freeman, a double board-certified facial plastic surgeon performs lip enhancement procedures with either injectable fillers or surgical implants.  .

Lip enhancement with injectable fillers

If you desire a more subtle improvement or change to your lips, Dr. Freeman may recommend injectable fillers.  When you meet with Dr. Freeman during your initial consultation appointment, he will discuss the patient’s goals for their lip enhancement procedure and help them decide upon the right procedures to reach their goals.

The options for lip enhancement surgery

Dr. Freeman believes the best material for augmenting lips by surgical implant is allograft dermis.  This is because it provides a more natural look.  Surgical implants are performed at Dr. Freeman’s clinic in Charlotte NC.  It is an outpatient procedure and most patients are able to return to normal activities within a few days.  One of the benefits of using allograft dermis during lip enhancement is that the material may be rolled, stacked or folded to provide just the right amount and type of enhancement.

A lip lift

If you want something a bit more dramatic or are unhappy with your overall facial appearance, Dr. Freeman may recommend a lip lift.  Dr. Freeman evaluates your face for facial balance, looking for a one to two thirds balance between the length of their upper lip and their lower lip and chin.

Whether you are thinking about lip enhancement or a lip lift, Dr. M. Sean Freeman, Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgery will give you the results you desire.  Call his Charlotte NC office today to set you your appointment to discuss lip enhancement.


What Botox treats

Laser Resurfacing-Dr.Freeman Makeover

What Botox is

Botox was first used by ophthalmologists in the late 1980s to treat optic muscle disorders.  In 2002, the FDA approved its use for treating moderate to severe frown lines between the eyebrows.  Botox may be used to treat not only frown lines, but also crow’s feet and forehead furrows.

How Botox works

While injectable fillers add volume to depressions in the skin, Botox blocks the release of the chemical which causes the muscle contractions which result in wrinkles.  Botox relaxes the facial’s muscles so they cannot contract and the results from a Botox treatment are usually visible within one week of the shot and will remain between three and six months.

Botox treatments should only be performed by a licensed physician such as Dr. M. Sean Freeman, one of Charlotte’s best facial plastic surgeons.  Dr. Freeman can perform Botox injections at this state-of-the-art clinic, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery located in Charlotte NC.

The procedure

Botox injections, as well as injections of other types of cosmetic fillers require a precise knowledge of facial anatomy.  Dr. Freeman is considered one of the best facial plastic surgeons in Charlotte NC, as well as the entire Southeast and possesses extensive experience and knowledge of both of these cosmetic treatments. Depending upon your individual situation, Dr. Freeman may also recommend additional procedures.  If you have lines and wrinkles on the lower part of your face, you may also do well with injectable fillers such as RADIESSE® and Restylane.

Botox injections can help improve the appearance of wrinkles and frown lines. Call Dr. Freeman’s clinic in Charlotte NC, The Center for Facial and Plastic Laser Surgery to schedule your Botox appointment.
