More and more details are emerging about the Geosign businesses that attracted the $160 million in VC (see previous post on thefart.com).
Apparently, earlier this year Geosign acquired a company called SWI Digital in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, but this time it doesn’t appear to have made any public announcements (correct me if I’m wrong.) The company’s execs seem to have learned that when you’re in the type of business they’re in it’s better to keep quiet about it.
So what exactly does SWI do? Well, it owns and operates 30,000 domain names — to add to the 90,000 Geosign owns through NYCGroup.com — and it’s got some of that magic less-expensive-to-produce Web 2.0 content.
SWI Digital owns 17,000 legal websites and holds the largest legal portfolio in the Nation! We are looking for ONE attorney or ONE firm to represent our websites in their county as an EXCLUSIVE LISTING partner for the year.
What this means to you is every time one of YOUR potential clients goes to one of our websites (CriminalDefenseLawyer.com, DrunkDrivingLawyer.com (SIC: THIS IS WRONG IT IS DrunkdrivinglawyerS.com), DivorceLawFirms.com, PersonalInjuryLawyer.com, and the other thousands of websites we own) they are prompted to enter their zip code. If they select the numerous zip codes in your selected county, we guarantee that they will find you, and only you and your firm, and NONE OF YOUR COMPETITION. Plus we guarantee front-page placement on GOOGLE for the entire year.
SWI Digital is NOT a referral service, and we DO NOT sell cases. Our competition is Lawyers.com and FindLaw.com with one unique exception. Instead of placing you on a multiple listing with 150-200 other lawyers, SWI Digital uses your firm and only your firm only, in your County!
The pricing on the EXLUSIVITY in your County for the year will be determined on the population of your County. Pricing may vary between $1000-$6500 for the YEAR! This program is right now the best method to attract and generate new clients to your firm. Counties are being sold right now, so please call with your practice and which County you would like to be exclusive in.
SWI Digital has around the clock SEO Engineers that keep these websites ranking number one in Google our of millions of other law firms, advertisers, and marketers that are looking to Optimize their own websites to be placed on the first page of Google. We include this Optimization Team as part of your annual fee.
It’s not hard to see why Geosign prefers to be known as a publisher of “high-quality” consumer websites. It’s a much more respectable business even if it pays way worse than speculation.
