Each year, the US Commerce Association (USCA) identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and community.
Also, a copy of the press release publicizing the selection of Raise My Ranks Service has been posted on our website. The USCA hereby grants Raise My Ranks Service a non-exclusive, royalty-free license to use, reproduce, distribute, and display this press release in any media formats and through any media channels.
There's even a picture of my lovely trophy attached.
Of course, my company name is not Raise My Ranks Service. It's Raise My Rank [singular] SEO Services [plural]. And I'm not a web site designer. I suck at web site design.
And of course, a search for the US Commerce Association returns a bunch of pages warning about them scamming people by selling them bogus awards.
I actually recognized the wrong company name. Yahoo Local had me listed as "Raise My Ranks Svc" for a while. I fixed it years ago, but I still get spam snail mail with that name in the address. It clearly means "I got your information by buying a cheap, out of date mailing list, so feel free to send me straight to the bin."
