Feedback summary: 

The team at First Rank increased the client’s organic site traffic by 100%, with a 300% increase in customer conversion rates. Their communication is excellent, as are their trustworthy business practices.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president and local director of a consulting firm that helps people struggling with consumer debt.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with First Rank?

We were trying to get increased exposure on search engines.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They performed a variety of SEO services to increase my rankings. This included link-building, content creation, and website updates. They regularly provide analytics so we can see our progress. We track organic search traffic to measure the success of their work. 

What is the team composition?

I had one main point of contact: Mickey (Business Development Manager). 

How did you come to work with First Rank?

I think I actually found them on Clutch when I was searching for SEO firms. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spend $2,500 per month, so, in total, we’ve invested almost $10,000 so far. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We began our ongoing partnership in December 2019. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Website traffic went up over 100% since I engaged them, which was only about three months ago. Our client conversion related to SEO went up 300% as well. 

How did First Rank perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication is excellent. They’re always available when I need them. I’ve never tried to call them and not have them answer.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In my search for a provider, I interviewed around 20 other SEO companies. They were the only company that I had confidence in. Other vendors openly admitted to using unethical practices like buying links, which is not sustainable long term. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have any complaints. At this moment, I’m 100% satisfied. 

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

I recommend talking to different firms so you can get a better understanding of the industry which will help you see the value in First Rank’s expertise.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of Anago Cleaning Systems in Winnipeg. We provide commercial cleaning and janitorial services to our clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire First Rank?

The cleaning industry has a lot of competition in Winnipeg. We needed to hire an external resource to help us rank highly on Google.

What were your goals for this project?

We had very little online presence, but we wanted to be the number one result on Google for most keywords related to the cleaning industry. The goal was to have potential clients call us for commercial cleaning in Winnipeg.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were referred to me by a reputable business acquaintance. I met with three different vendors during the due diligence process. I found First Rank to be the most professional and knowledgeable, with a clear grasp of the subject.

Describe the project in detail.

First Rank started by interviewing us in order to understand our operations. Then they listed major keywords to target. Now they handle all management of our Google Ads account. 

What was the team composition?

Our primary contact is Jacob (Founder & CEO, First Rank). A number of other members of their team work on our account.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

While the task facing them was mammoth, First Rank quickly improved our web presence and got us on the first page of Google results. We now rank in the top three spots on Google, and the phone rings non-stop.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow is quite smooth due to First Rank’s professional approach. Communication is a strong suit. All expectations are clearly laid out. Jacob and his team took over the project and really own it; we’re in safe hands.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

First Rank’s innovative approach, knowledgeable staff, and commitment to results is why I love them.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I hope they continue to do well and can be a long-term partner for us. We highly recommend them.

First Rank’s campaigns tripled call volume for service work. The team’s research informed keyword strategy, increasing website visibility and ranking. Outperforming deadlines, their accessibility positions them as a valuable long-term partner.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the president of Powertec Electric Inc/Powertec Solar Inc, a commercial electrical contracting and solar installation company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with First Rank?

We needed a partner for SEO support. We don’t have internal marketing capacities but wanted to improve our website traffic. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Predominately, First Rank performed SEO support that evolved to include social media and blog management which the team syndicated to our platforms. To optimize traffic, they developed a link building campaign and researched an improved Google Ads keyword strategy. The team redesigned our entire website, improving visual content and updating its front- and backend.

How did you come to work with First Rank?

I spoke to their team after they presented to a business group that I’m a member of. We’d done SEO campaigns with several other companies that returned poor results. The success of First Rank’s trial period resulted in our long-term engagement.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $60,000–70,000 CAD (approximately $44,900 USD) throughout the partnership.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began collaborating in June 2015, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

As a result of First Rank's efforts, call volume tripled for service work. Our website has become significantly more searchable, which has increased site traffic. Looking at our keywords, we appear in two postings on the first page and high in local results. We’re ranking quite high for all of the search items we wanted to rank for. The positive results were instantaneous.

How did First Rank perform from a project management standpoint?

We're getting the work we want so I haven't tracked progress. If we weren’t seeing the increase in phone calls, I would account for how the team’s time is spent. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Unlike competitors, their efforts quickly got results. Digital marketing is difficult for us so it was significant that the team is local, which enables us to meet face-to-face. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would say they could provide better metrics, but it's not a complaint considering the success of their efforts. If my website weren’t doing well, I would probably want a better monthly detailed report of project management.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Ensure that you do your cost-benefit analysis within the first year and track things well to find out if there’s actually a profit being turned.
