About The Founder

My name is Jerry Kennedy. I’m a Christian, a husband, a dad of 3, a former chiropractor, and the founder of Purpose Local. When I was 24-years-old, I opened a chiropractic practice and began my journey of small-business ownership. Like most small-business owners, I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. It was much harder than I thought it was going to be. 

It’s a miracle that I didn’t have to close my practice in those first few years. I was a hot mess. Eventually, with a lot of trial and error, things started coming together. In fact, I really loved being a small-business owner.

After 9 years in practice, I decided to close up shop. It turns out that I liked business and marketing more than I liked being a chiropractor. I very much appreciated my patients and the time I spent in practice, but it was time to move on.

Since I closed my practice, I've had my hand in several different pots. One of the main things I have been doing is working as a small-business/marketing consultant for chiropractors. I help new and struggling chiropractors get their practices on track. It’s a role that is near and dear to my heart because of my own struggles as a new chiropractor. 

One of the things I have realized over the last several years is that the small-business struggles that chiropractors deal with are not unique. In general, small-business owners struggle to grow their businesses to the level that they had hoped for when they started. It's incredibly frustrating.

My goal for Purpose Local is to help small-business owners alleviate some of that frustration. I want Purpose Local to be a trusted resource where small-business owners know they can get tips, services, and tools that will help them reach their small-business goals and take their local business to all-new heights. 

I needed some help fixing up my local business website in terms of making it look more professional, easier to navigate, and get more traffic. After working with Jerry from Purpose Local, my website is already greatly improved in every area in just a few weeks. Highly recommended!

When I started my business I had no idea how to setup a website or how to use social media to promote my work. Jerry really helped me get it all set up and people are coming in because of it. I get customers all the time that say they found me online or follow my work on social media. I knew how to work on cars but Jerry helped me market my work and get customers in the shop.

Great software to help build your online business reviews. Easy to use and lots of customization options. Tech support was timely and helpful, and they also do periodic webinars when they roll out new features the community has requested.

We've been using Purpose Local for a while and we have been pleased with the product experience and have had good results in getting our patient's to review our business using the service. EVEN MORE THAN THAT - if you want to do business with someone who is truly authentic, speak with Jerry. Seriously, one of the nicest, most sincere business contacts I have come across. You can tell he genuinely wants to help people succeed, and he walks that talk. 5 stars for sure!

I’ve been running my own company’s website for over a decade. As time passed, my ability to stay on top of the SEO game dwindled. I literally found myself on page 37 of Google and was appalled at how poorly my ranking became... After a consultation with Jerry from Purpose Local, he listened to my situation and offered to help. He did a thorough review of every aspect of my site that relates to SEO ranking and tirelessly explained the myriad issues I’d created for myself by incorrectly managing things on my site. I was thrilled to hear that so many fairly simply improvements could be made. I applied all of his advice, and expected not to see the results for at least a month. But in about 48 hours my website was back on page-1 of Google. I was stunned by how efficient, accurate, and logical this process turned out to be... and I’m so grateful for his help and guidance. Not once did he try to pressure me or sell me on anything. He just answered my questions, shared his expertise, and IT WORKED! Thank you so much!
