About Me | Your Friendly Local SEO Pro 

ABOUT ME_elaine bulawin Elaine Bulawin

Hey there, I'm Elaine Bulawin, and I'm so glad you've stopped by!

I'm a SEMrush Agency Partner which means I have access to exclusive tools, insights, and support that allow me to deliver data-driven, results-oriented SEO strategies to help your business thrive online.

But, I'm also a mother and a loving owner of a delightful malti-poo, Wally, so I know about juggling life's many adventures.

Helping small businesses like yours shine in the digital landscape through personalized Local SEO strategies is what I'm passionate about.

A Journey of Creativity and Connection

Believe it or not, I wasn't always knee-deep in keywords and rankings. In a past life, I was a balloon artist and face painter, bringing joy to countless children's parties and events.

And yes, I even penned a book—Twist Balloons Profitably: How to Build a Balloon Twisting Side Hustle—sharing my tips and tricks for turning a passion into profit.

But as my love for creativity evolved, so did my fascination with the world of Local SEO.

Finding Purpose in Helping Others Succeed

What started as a curiosity quickly blossomed into a passion for helping businesses like yours reach their full potential online.

I believe every business has a story to tell. And through the power of Local SEO, I'm here to help you share your unique story with the world.

From keyword research, on-page optimization, listing management, optimizing your Google Business Profile (formerly Google My Business) listing to crafting engaging content for your audience, I'm committed to helping you stand out from the competition.

SEMrush Certifications and Expertise

I've dedicated many hours to developing my skills and expanding my knowledge, earning a growing list of SEMrush certifications along the way. I'm a SEMrush Agency Partner and Google Analytics certified so I'm equipped with the knowledge, tools, insights and expertise to help your business rise.
