    Sounds like everyone wants to automate, scale and get out of the trenches. Good for you! That is the only way to truly grow. It is a challenge for a service oriented business, but it can be done. Anyone wants some advice on those points hit me up, happy to share our experience.

    My list in no particular order:

    1. Continue building on our portal for partners
    2. Refine our training process
    3. Add new products to our service lineup
    4. Find a web design company we can trust to refer clients to!
    5. Get 6 more white-label partners for our G+ Social SEO service.
    6. Keep going to the gym 5 days a week ;P

    It's really fun reading this thread and seeing which way the wind is blowing for so many of you who consult with local businesses. In 2017, I hope to:

    1) Increase the educational resources at Moz for local business owners and the agencies that serve them

    2) Dig deeper into the facets of local search marketing campaigns, hopefully finding new, helpful angles to research and write about which have yet to be thoroughly explored.

    3) Learn more about the concept of aspirational marketing and tying that to local businesses, serving the rising generation of customers who want to feel that the businesses they patronize are good companies that benefit their communities in terms of social justice, environmental justice or other desirable qualities.

    Wishing you all a happy 2017 in which you meet all of your goals!

    We've made a ton of improvements this year which has only increased my appetite for 2017, ironically. In 2017, we want to start spreading our wings into other areas of digital marketing like social media, marketing automation and acquisition automation.
