Why We Started BC Local Marketing?

Liza reached Google Local Guide Level 6 – providing photos and reviews of local businesses, starting in East Vancouver! This resulted in over 2 million photo views after 8 months of posting hundreds of photos of art galleries and restaurants.

“The appreciation from local business owners has been uplifting and I’m making a real impact in my local community. Google founders are real philanthropists and they want to help the “little guy”, not just big advertisers with their Google Local Guide program.” (Liza J. Lee)
