For someone who was born and raised in “land-locked” little Dove Creek, Colorado, Tony Semadeni jokes how only the adventure of seeing the world – compliments of the U.S. Navy – could have got him to move. For him, it was an strange world and an eye-opener on the possibilities life had to offer.
Serving onboard the USS Louisville SSN 724 Submarine stationed out of San Diego, Tony was able to visit many countries during this time with the Navy, including the Seychelles Islands, Australia, Hong Kong, Thailand, Philippines, Mexico, Czech Republic, United Arab Emirates, and Switzerland. They were treasured times for Tony, who shared his excitement with his son…who now himself is in the Navy on a Submarine.
In the mid-1990’s, after his 6 year stint touring the world, Tony Semadeni – an entrepreneur at heart – launched his first business endeavor, helping market financial services for investments, mortgages and insurance companies in Southern California, as well as working with Verizon to help market and grow their business during their startup years.
As the year 2000 arrived, newly married and the dream to start a family, Tony relocated back to his home state of Colorado, where he started a new marketing business to again sell insurance and mortgages. Then seeing the early signs of how the Internet was going to truly impact businesses, he shifted his own business strategy…to help local business owners with marketing and advertising in what would become known as “the digital age.”
Over the last 10 years, working hand-in-hand with business owners, he has brought his expertise to Google Marketing and Search Engine Optimizing. As an agent of AdZzoo he expanded local business awareness through online directories and premiere website placements in Google, Yahoo and Bing. With Qnanza, he offered a new form of digital couponing for business owners with no up-front costs. And, under his own company brand of Business Checkup, Tony consistently delivers a key set of service products that is essential for every business in today’s digital world, from Google Mobile advertising, placement in online directories, new website development, social media marketing, and online reputation repair.
Tony Semadeni is well known for truly caring for the livelihood and business growth of the local business owner. However he is also known for his love and skill of coaching youth sports — Football, Track, Lacrosse, and Basketball. If you run into Tony around town in Colorado Springs, he’ll most likely be networking with other business owners or getting a bunch of high school kids to yell with excitement. It’s what Tony does best!
