PERTH, Australia, Sept. 06, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Locafy Limited (Nasdaq: LCFY, LCFYW) (“Locafy” or “the Company”), a globally recognized software-as-a-service technology company specializing in local search engine marketing, announced today that it has acquired Jimmy Kelley Digital, a marketing firm led by SEO and e-commerce specialist Jimmy Kelley.
In conjunction with the acquisition, Kelley will join Locafy as its new Global Head of Search Technology, effective immediately. Kelley is a highly regarded SEO traffic expert who specializes in organic search innovation on several data platforms. An industry thought leader, Kelley brings to Locafy over 20 years of experience in highly competitive internet markets, including eight years spent developing e-commerce marketing strategies.

As SEO and SEM technology continue to advance, large players in the e-commerce marketing industry are placing an increased emphasis on local search. Combined with my technologies, Locafy’s scale and cutting-edge solutions can therefore provide increased value for a widening range of clients. I believe that Locafy is poised to take advantage of a vast market opportunity, and I’m excited to blend my expertise into the team in the coming months.”
