What differentiates us
Most online marketing companies are publicly owned which means they answer to Wall Street. The Hedge Funds who are the background owners of these media companies care about one thing - profits and any and all costs. Other marketing companies focus on selling we focus on providing the best possible return on investment (ROI) for our customers. We work with only the best partners to provide the best value, customer acquistion, customer retention and we can move on a dime when online tactics change and new capabilities are introduced.
How we were trained
The founder of Cherish Local, Marty Carry, was fortunate to have a 23 year experience in the Newspaper and Online industry. Marty quickly became nationally recruited as he swiftly built a track record on rapidly turning around underperforming companies. A large part of each of these challenges was how to grow online marketing while minimizing the loss of traditional revenues. By strategically surrounding himself with the best Software as a Service companies and pushing them to modify their offerings to best help the customers Carry delivered top performing numbers for every challenge. What drives Marty is "finding the new" never being complacent and always being involved in personally overseeing the success of every customer. Carry received multiple sales and online training through these victories but most was learned actually researching and getting his hands dirty finding the gold in each program that would help his team's customers. Core sales training back in 2001 and Marty recently graduated from Dale Carnegie and was voted top in his class by the other students. Carry's biggest strength is his unmatched experience at overseeing online marketing success and the prospective he brings from his first career. Before finding his way to advertising in 1993, Carry worked in the food service industry. Starting as a busboy at The Holly Hotel in Holly Michigan and later growing to Head Waiter at The Fenton Hotel in Fenton, MI. When Marty met his soon to be bride Mary Elliott at the Perry Place Apartments swimming pool in July of 1990 he knew changes were needed in his life and career to maximize his potential. After a long struggle with alcoholism, Carry committed to sobriety in October of 1990, Married his wife Mary in September of 1991. Thanks to a referral from Carry's Mother, Amelia Pauline Carry (Knapp), Carry secured his first advertising job selling for a Homes For Sale Magazine for The Oakland Press Newspaper in Pontiac, MI in June of 1993. The Carry's bought their first home on their 2nd anniversary in September of 1993 and welcomed their beautiful daughter Megan Amelia Carry, to the world in March of 1994. Carry's highest W-2 prior to entering his advertising career was $16k in annual earnings. From the day he started his career in advertising he never forgotton where he started. He quickly saw how many colleagues in the industry took their positions for granted and he quickly found mentors. During the formative years of his career, Marty Carry, found what mattered most - if you work hard to be creative for your customers, bring them ideas and ensure their success, everyone will win. Carry received his first supervisory role at The Oakland Press in 2007 and from that point on he was recruited to Milwaukee, WI, Flint, MI, Livonia, MI, Detroit, MI, Wichita, KS, Springfield, IL, and Tucson, AZ. Although the career was amazing and the wins were nationally recognized at the largest media companies in the nation, Carry's work life balance suffered. This led to his family moving back to the Grand Blanc, MI home they have owned since 2003 and had been renting out for 7 years. Cherish Local was born in April of 2016 and is rapidly becoming known as an agency who is willing to do whatever it takes to properly serve local businesses all over the country with the most vital online marketing tools then gradually ramping up the tactics based on their budget. After an incredible 2017, Carry's team of now 6 is poised for rapid growth which means local businesses in United States finally have an online marketing company that is truly focused on their success, not feeding the greed of Wall Street.
