Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
3plains's work on SEO and the infrastructure design of our system have been responsible for our business. 3plains has been a strong strategic partner, and I can't think of a more powerful tool, from a marketing standpoint, than the site they've built for me. I've been able to move away from all marketing channels, except for organic search, which is a huge cost savings.
Because of the length of our relationship, it's hard to specify metrics. We've worked on many projects through the years, and I'd say that 80 percent of our traffic comes through the website. This is attributable to 3plains's work and organic search.
What did you find most impressive about 3plains?
When I started working with 3plains, the company was made up of only the owner, but they've grown to 4 people. The organization has specific expertise for design and is focused on the outdoor market. 3plains started its business in South Dakota, with pheasant hunting outfitters, but they branched out to have an almost nationwide reach, and even beyond if we consider fishing businesses in Mexico and Canada. 3plains continues to grow and develop as an organization.
Are there any areas 3plains could improve?
I can't think of anything. 3plains's professionalism and customer service have continued to improve in time.
What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with 3plains?
Listening to customers will help owners add value to their business.
