This page has been put together for the Darke County Meow Project by Michael Blackwell to show credibility for himself and his company, Dry Rain Media.
Please do not hesitate to call, text or email with any questions.
Why Are We Here?
My name is Michael Blackwell. A lot of businesses have a website that is basically an online brochure… in a closet. It is literally doing nothing for them and, definitely, isn’t generating any revenue or leads for them.
I have been in the industry since 1998 and a business owner since 2004: I can confidently say that our websites are revenue generating machines and have taken businesses to a new level by giving them, essentially, a free salesman.

Goal is to hit the four main objectives starting in Darke County, Ohio.
Two | We Rank Websites
Ranking a website is different than ranking the Google Map Business Listing. This is called Organic Rankings. Using a phone or laptop, go to Google and type “Barn Builder Dayton Ohio”
We did the website for Dayton Barns & All Steel Buildings.
Scroll below the Google Map listings and you will see a list of websites.
These are the organic rankings. The only way to achieve Page 1 of Organic Rankings is with Internet Marketing (also called Search Engine Optimization SEO). The only way to get on page 1 is to do this monthly.
Three | We Rank Google Map Listings
Google Map Listings are completely different from your website.
It takes separate hours of work and, when done well, becomes a separate funnel for leads and revenue working along side your website.
When you search for your main service keyword, you’ll notice the Top 3 Google Map Listings aka The Google Map Pack.
Being in the top 3 can increase your business by 80% in some niches.
If you aren’t in the Map Pack, you’re missing out on an entirely new level of business!
Four | Monthly Updates & Protection
A giant misunderstanding about web development is that once the website is live and online, it will automatically just work from that day forward.
A website is never finished, it is never done. You need to think of it like a relationship, this website needs constant care, attention and upgrades, edits and changes.
Many different softwares run your website and they get updated as softwares get better. But, as more and more websites begin accepting user’s information, hackers step up their game, as well.
Running a website without a monthly maintenance package is like dating someone once, calling them your spouse, and then never taking them out on a date again.
It would never work.
We can discuss these packages whenever you are ready for this information and pricing.
Five | Credibility
I’ve been in the industry since 1999 and a business owner in it since 2004; there is nothing I haven’t seen nor done when it comes to Online Marketing.
