Chuck Magee, Founder & CEO

While the internet was still young Chuck Magee in 1999, while watching the History Channel, formed a revolutionary idea that would lead him into his next successful business adventure: a real estate listing platform. He put his years of business experience to good use in the development and marketing of this new platform.

Understanding the vital role SEO would play in the success or failure of his new real estate listing platform, Chuck dove into the new world of SEO and going after Google rankings. Search engine optimization, or SEO marketing at this point in the history of Google who was still new, and the internet was changing almost daily. Hard work and the desire to learn the new world of SEO drove his new platform, Mississippi-landsource.com, to rank number one on the Google search engine in less than 24 months against other national brands.

With over 125 members of this new platform, mississippilandsource.com, Chuck’s SEO work was starting to get talked about. Real Estate brokers started asking for SEO services for their websites. So, Chuck started freelancing for friends in the real estate industry. This is how doing SEO for others got started for Chuck.

In 2013 Chuck created SSA, Store Share Access, a roofing CRM. Once SSA was starting sales to roofing companies in the United States the word once again got out about Chuck’s SEO skills and internet marketing and roofing company owners started asking for help. Roofers needed help with their own websites just like everyone else. The first thing Chuck noticed was roofers were getting taken advantage of since they did not know about SEO or what an digital agency should really be doing.

What makes Chuck’s SEO different for roofers than other digital agencies, is that Chuck started a roofing company from scratch. Within two years Chuck’s roofing company was Platinum Preferred with Owens Corning, Select Shingle Master with CertainTeed and Master Elite with GAF. Chuck knows what it is like to meet a client, sign a contract, meet an adjuster, build a roof and collect the check.
