Justin Liles is the Chief Product Officer for Advice Local, where he leads a team of more than 650 people. He has overseen the submission of more than 4 million business listings to directory sites through the company’s proprietary listings management technology.
Justin began his career in Internet marketing in May 2009, selling online visibility services and quickly mastering the processes of how businesses were placed on major search engines, and best practices, helping those businesses dominate their local search area.
Justin was originally a contractor at Advice, through his own company, working in the trenches to handle the setup and optimization of Google My Business local business listings. In November 2011, Justin’s company was acquired by Advice, allowing him the opportunity to move up through the ranks to his current C-level position.
With degrees from Temple University, University of San Francisco and Full Sail University, he is well versed in sound business practices and all facets of Internet marketing, which he continues his learning in by reading one chapter, everyday, from various industry books. When he is not “incognito” with search and local SEO, you can find him practicing martial arts, hanging at the closest beach or spending time with the people he loves.
