Our Story

We’ve been entrepreneurs for the past 20 years and many times small business owners. We get it. We know the hard work and the hassles and the overwhelm. We also know the victories and what it’s like to run a rapidly growing business. The Bighorn philosophy is that you shouldn’t have to be an expert at online marketing in order for your business to succeed and grow.

You should be an expert at what YOU do. Ideally, you should have the time to focus on your craft, learn and become the best at it. Seek out marketing professionals that you trust and let them do what they do best. Trust that they’ve got your back and will respect your budget as if it was their own.

We created Bighorn Local SEO to give business owners some peace of mind knowing their online marketing is the best hands possible.  We each have many years of experience working with hundreds of clients across dozens of industries. We’re learning every day to stay on the leading edge of this rapidly evolving environment. We’ll never sell you something you don’t need and we’ll always strive to point you down the best path. If your best path is a Bighorn Marketing Package, then we’re glad you found us!

SEO Strategist

My career has been focused on Local Search since 2008, back when how to get found on Google was a mystery for almost everyone. I successfully launched two companies based on Local Search technology  Trumpet Local Media and Sites for Law Firms and have worked directly with thousands of small business clients. In 2013, Ramblin’ Jackson acquired Trumpet Local Media to bring Local SEO services in-house and asked me to develop their SEO subscription packages.

After 13 entrepreneurial years in Boulder, my wife and two small kids out-voted me so we moved out west to the magical Western town of Sisters, Oregon. Here the stars shine brighter, life is sweeter, and folks sometimes order their coffee to go via horseback. I’m not kidding. Oregon’s newest Digital Marketing Agency – Bighorn Local SEO – puts a new twist on a proven successful approach to affordably help small businesses grow online.

Our company has been working with Bighorn Local SEO for a few months now. All I have to say is "WOW".  I wish we knew them 9 yrs ago!! I tried on my own to optimize our moving company website and it didn’t work so well.  They have fixed my site, added pages, linked to other places and so on. Now the website has seen a 400% increase in traffic and we actually show up on Google now! Jeffrey is great to work with and really knows his stuff. Thank you for all your help.

I have been working with Jeffrey Magner ever since I opened my acupuncture practice 10 years ago. He was there to support me with my new business, and I know because of him that I have a thriving practice.  I’ve never needed to advertise. He is very knowledgeable about SEO and always has great ideas on how to optimize my website.  He has taught me a lot about the technology side of having a practice, and because of him I have ranked incredibly high since the beginning.
