Our Story

What’s a Rich Text element?

LSM was founded by Trevor Emerson in 2006. The company, then known as Local Search Masters, initially focused on providing small businesses in the Nashville area with local search engine optimization. Based out of a kitchen and entirely self-funded, this early incarnation of LSM involved a lot of cold calls to local business owners. During these discussions, it became clear that being a SEO agency alone wasn’t enough: these companies needed comprehensive advertising and digital marketing solutions.

Over the next several years, we began expanding the scope of our operations and were soon attracting clients from outside the state. The formula — a combination of down-to-earth transparency and powerful, enterprise-grade analytical insights — proved successful with businesses of all sizes, including multi-location franchisors.

By 2018, the company had formally adopted its shorthand name, and expanded services to include web design, advertising campaign management, branding, and more. With expertise in paid search advertising, digital advertising, online reputation management, and a plethora of other marketing services, LSM has established itself as a reputable and innovative agency that delivers results. Our team of specialists also provides web development services and custom software solutions to streamline your business operations, as well as, social media management services and full-scale creative, to amplify your brand's online presence and engage your target audience effectively.

Today, LSM is a full-service advertising agency. Currently based out of Nashville, TN; Denver, CO; and Las Vegas, NV, we’ve come a long way from our humble beginnings, but our commitment to helping businesses build and maintain a winning online presence remains unchanged.
