We are here to help you (the Inland Empire) grow.
We share stories that have a positive impact on the greater Inland Empire by focusing on businesses, organizations and improving our economy through education, job creation and sharing successes we find locally.
We don’t exist to sell advertising. We have no journalist on staff. We don’t break stories.
We build optimized content, great stories and strive to show truth. We have partners whom need marketing performance for their organizations. We are built for performance. We propel business forward through highly targeted and ranked content. We build shareable content, so the Inland Empire can benifit and spread the stories.
We were born out of the expert marketers, looking for a better way to help our community. Think of us as a performance based Economic Development Agency.
How can we help you? We partner with the good people of the Inland Empire to build a better Inland Empire.
We were born from entrepreneurs, a story that starts back to the 1970’s… but flash forward to 1999. The Internet was exploding and a marketing consulting company called Burgess Management, needed to build websites for clients. Born was an idea to take the Redlands, CA website market by storm, and RedFusion Media was born. A pillar of our plan was to be the largest website design company in Redlands, and to help achieve this we started a website called RedlandWeb.com.
RedlandsWeb.com was a place to get our clients found, so our local directory for Redlands quickly grew, and within a few short years, RedFusion was the largest digital marketing company and RedlandsWeb.com had the 3rd most traffic in Redlands (behind the University of Redlands and ERSI). By accident, we figured out what SEO was really about, and as Google matured we were given some true gems about how to win traffic.
Because Google kicked butt, during 2004-2005, we knew our RedlandsWeb.com experiment was over, Google really had no need for directories. As quickly as we saw our market grow, it eroded twice as fast. In 2004 we knew the hyper-local directories would be won by Google, so we bought InlandEmpire.US as a regional website platform to continue some of the success we had learned.
