The Review
Feedback summary: 

The functionality of the website improved and about 20% of the business comes from the website/social media. Experienced and responsive, The Ad Firm goes above and beyond to meet all needs, while their quick turnaround times and commitment made them a reliable partner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the operations manager for Atlanta women's health group.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with The Ad Firm?

We worked with another company, but that vendor disappeared and we never heard from them again. We were not able to make any changes to our website, so we were looking for a new company to get our website back and help us with social media marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The Ad Firm assists us with marketing and growing our patient base. They set up our social media accounts and pages for Yelp and Google reviews. We hadn't used social media before, but we were happy to jump on that train.

Also, we use different phrases for our different locations, and each month we get a report from their analytics with the common searches. They provide recommendations to help us improve the results for our website, social media, and Google searches. In addition, they'll be redesigning our website.

What is the team composition?

We mostly work with Meghan (Digital Marketing Director, The Ad Firm).

How did you come to work with them?

We were looking for different companies that would take over our site. The Ad Firm was recommended to us and we've been enjoying their work ever since.

How much have you invested with them?

We pay them about $3,000 a year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2014 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

About 20% of our customers find us through our website or social media. Before we started working with them, our website was very non-functional. Now, we have a website that is fully functional and has an online scheduling feature. They know what will help our business grow. We fully trust them.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very friendly and prompt. They have fast turnaround times when it comes to web design, which happens rarely in the IT world. We have monthly calls and they update me on our progress.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I'm more hands-on than most of their clients, but they like that about me and are willing to work collaboratively with me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Feedback summary: 

The Ad Firm's work has brought in more leads and moved the company from the second page of Google rankings to the top three results. The team is quick to respond to questions, eager to implement new trends, and proactive in managing their process.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the CEO of a company that specializes in water damage and intrustion, leak detection, mold remediation, and waterproofing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire The Ad Firm?

We hired them for SEO, web development, call tracking, press release writing, improvement of our Google rankings, and assistance with the management of our Yelp and Angie’s List profiles.

What were your goals for this project?

We aimed to improve and maintain our rankings. We also wanted to ensure that our web presence stayed up to date and that changes were made every week using Google.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We vetted a few companies to see who would work best with our goals and direction. The Ad Firm understood exactly what we wanted and knew how to get there.

Describe the project in detail.

They refresh the website and keep our rankings current by ensuring that keywords are up-to-date on all search platforms. We’ve also worked through a list of possible keywords that pinpoint exactly what we do. We stay constantly up-to-date on this and make sure that our keywords are congruent across all platforms.

They put out monthly press releases that link to our website and keep our Google rankings current. They also use call tracking to identify where calls are coming from, determine whether they are valid, and evaluate whether they produce leads. That also enables us to listen to calls for training purposes.

What was the team composition?

We deal directly with the owner and office manager. Their team works behind the scenes with them on all platforms.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Before we started working with The Ad Firm, we showed up on the bottom of the first page or on the second page. Now we show up in the top three spots and have received more phone calls.

How did the The Ad Firm perform from a project management standpoint?

They are great about staying up-to-date and making us aware when we need to do or change something. They're also good at taking calls and emails, answering questions, and helping however they can.

What impresses you about the The Ad Firm?

They have integrity and they always deliver. We never have to manage them, since they're always on top of everything and ensure we stay on top.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We had a few issues, but we discussed them and they changed immediately. Our relationship has been easy thereafter.
