Hopkins County Sheriff Website

Newly Launched!  Hopkins County Sheriff Website
Sheriff Matt Sanderson asked for a website that would reflect the professional men and women who so proudly serve the Hopkins County Sheriff's Office.  I found quickly that the office is truly diverse and has several layers with many duties that we all remain unaware of as we travel our streets safely.  The sheer number of calls they answer as well as handling the taxes and working with ongoing Vice-Narcotics investigations in cooperation with the Madisonville Police Department as well as other City, County, State, and Federal agencies gave me a whole new appreciation for these men and women.  It has been a true pleasure to work with them through the project and I am honored to have been selected to do the job.  Their website features a real close look at our Hopkins County Sheriff's Office from Division Information - CCDW - Tax Information - Maps - Monthly Statistics - Photos - Quick Links - Crimestoppers Newest Video - Submit A Tip Program - Emergency News, Community News, Press Releases, Fallen Heroes that will feed into their Facebook - Quick Links - Community Links and so much more.

I am very proud to announce that my team has received national recognition earning Top 10 Automotive Website 2016 by ASA's AutoInc Magazine on the criteria of being mobile-friendly, having a call to action, first impression and visual design, objective and purpose, consumer friendliness, technical usage, credibility and social media presence with www.menkesauto.com for Menke's Auto Repair of Newburgh, IN.  The website and award was featured in their November/December issue.  *article information below.

I am honored to work with those who have a strong commitment to quality and excellence and to have our downtown Madisonville business recognized on a national level by a program like AutoInc Magazine which would not be possible without with the owners of Menke's, Verne and Barb, who spent so much time on the project.  Their standards are equally high and they devoted a considerable amount of time and effort to ensure everything was perfect.  Working with them helped us step up our efforts and learn more so that we can help other shops we work with and I thank them for choosing our team to work with. 

CMR Inc has worked with 93 garages since earning the recommendation of JASPER Engines & Transmissions for their Owner-Installers and that is another matter of pride for us as their products and history show them to be a strong company with high standards.  We learn something new daily from our garage owners and continue to build the www.JASPERwebsites.com program and brand.   We also have a great time helping them grow their businesses.

It is no longer an option - your business has to be online!

With the explosion of mobile search and local search it is no longer an option for you to put off getting your business listed online the right way.  Simply put business has changed, marketing has changed, and your customer base has changed providing opportunity as well as challenges.  Different and new can be intimidating, however, it really is EASIER - FASTER - LESS EXPENSIVE than traditional marketing has been which are all positive factors.  Quite simply if you are not online, your customers are not finding you as that is where they are looking.  Mobile media use overtook desktop use in 2013 and earlier this year Google took the stand that mobile friendly - responsive websites would benefit over those sites that were not in mobile searches.  Why?  Because their users want information faster - easier and they want to provide it for them. 

The first question I ask customers is when is the last time you went through your website with the mindset of a customer?  Is it easy to find everything?  Have you looked at that website on your mobile device and more importantly have you searched your business and looked at all the directories?  It is what your customer sees when they search for you specifically.    You'd be amazed at the places you are not listed and the errors where you are.  Search your business here now.

However, you also need to show up on the more than 70 online directories with your information correct and make it even easier for customers to find you.  Costs are reasonable to get you there and keep you listed correctly, or you can do it yourself FREE.  Simply start your own Facebook account, claim your Google places, start a Google Business page, claim your Yelp, MapQuest, White Pages, Bing and Yahoo pages.  Tutorials are available online - just search for your specific need and Google - Yahoo - Bing - Youtube will find it for you.  If not we can get your directories fixed then keep them organized - claimed - effective here with our Smart List for $199mo once we get you up.  (Initial setup and launch fees start at $400 for small businesses with bigger businesses requiring more brands, depth and services at a higher rate).

I am living the dream and enjoying every minute as owner and President of CMR, inc where my job is to make it EASY for your business to grow while decreasing costs! I have been very effective at doing both throughout my 21+ years of marketing experience because I believe in a strong work ethic, delivering on promises, and I always look at the expense as if I were paying the costs. I've worked in radio and had the pleasure of being the Marketing Director for West Kentucky Bank as they branched out over multiple counties building 3 new branches then as Marketing Director for Hudson Automotive with 6 vehicle lines in a tri-state market area. My next position was Sales Director for Commonwealth Broadcasting with 5 radio stations growing their sales over 8 years. In 2008, I built my first company, iSurfHopkins.com, a purely local online newspaper where I focused on search engine optimization and online marketing and was very successful with our news featured on CNN Nancy Grace, Nightline, Metro Nashville and Evansville TV stations, and picked up by News.Google.com. We were ranked ONE in all search engines within 12 months. I left to launch Complete Marketing Resources in 2011 to provide a complete marketing - advertising approach delivering all products and services throughout my career. CMR inc has built some outstanding specialty programming products such as our CMR EasyNews as we focus on SEO which is focused on content. Adding articles in 3 steps with multiple photos, pdf files, and embedded youtube videos. There is no one size fits all so we customized our approach for your business. We are RECOMMENDED by JASPER Engines as well as SCAG for their customer websites which speaks volumes about our commitment to quality and customer service. Consider CMR for full marketing consulting, advertising placement, budget analysis, website design, custom graphics, specialty programming and commercial printing services. You will find my team is energizing, intuitive, proven, and we simply enjoy what we do! - Marion M Miller, President CMR, inc
