The site overhaul completed by Foster Web Marketing contributed to more leads being generated and increasing site compliments. The team ensured they were available for questions and adhered to the input they received. They made the process smooth and provided value worth the cost.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of Yolofsky Law. We provide services for estate planning and corporate legal needs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Foster Web Marketing?

I needed the website to be more responsive to current and prospective clients. The website only existed as a static brochure and had no SEO or integration with my other web pages.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to have one of the most useful corporate and estate planning websites in the market. I wanted my clients to learn everything they need to know by coming to the site.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I chose Foster Web Marketing because they came highly recommended by other attorneys. Myself and the founder also share common experiences and interests, which contributed to me choosing them.

Describe the project in detail.

They performed a complete overhaul of my site. They reorganized and reformatted everything so it was more accessible to users. The site is built on a CRM platform so we are able to create and manage campaigns directly on the site. They added videos and now reports are available to download.

What was the team composition?

Foster Web Marketing provided their team and made decisions on staffing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site has already generated more leads for the company and people love it. I also frequently receive compliments.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

There were a few misunderstandings but Foster Web Marketing always made sure to ask for our input and guidance on the project. Communication was smooth and they answered all of our questions quickly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated the fact that my questions and comments always reached the right person on the team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I’d like more features, but who wouldn't want that?

More than 55% of visitors find the site organically. Foster Web Marketing established a mobile-friendly site and made productive suggestions. Their team was helpful and responsive.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a law firm that specializes in family law in Richmond and Williamsburg, Virginia. We handle divorce, custody, adoption, estate planning, elder law, and related matters. I’m the firm administrator and marketing assistant.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Foster Web Marketing?

We wanted a professional website with strong organic search rankings and a good UI.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They designed a completely new website and upgraded our UX and UI. They focus on long-term solutions to attract high-quality leads. They made our site relevant for our target audience as they search for legal answers. There are multiple ways for users to enter the site and contact forms make it easy to communicate with us.

They also helped with our SEO. They eliminated toxic backlinks and weeded out material and articles that were underperforming. We have a quarterly meeting with a marketing coach and they make suggestions and divide up the work.

What is the team composition?

We interacted directly with two marketing coaches who also act as project managers.

How did you come to work with Foster Web Marketing?

We attended the Great Legal Marketing Conference in Fairfax a few years ago and met them there.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in the middle of 2014 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our organic search results have improved a lot since we started working together. As an example, we had 146 visitors yesterday. Of those, 81 came to us organically, 26 came though PPC, 17 came direct to the site, and 22 were referred. That’s a huge increase over the same time last year. Over 50% of our visitors come to us via mobile and they’ve helped us improve our mobile-friendliness. They put in panels, implemented our vision, and made suggestions.

How did Foster Web Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very productive and our team has been great. They get the work done and are very responsive. We’re really happy with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re not marketing vultures and they never go for the quick fix. They have a long-term view and focus on quality.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are somewhat pricey but the value they provide makes up for the cost.

Foster Web Marketing has a great reputation. They have been really easy to work with and have addressed all of my concerns.

Foster Web Marketing’s site has garnered praise for its appealing and accessible design. Furthermore, their DSS system provides an in-depth overview of the site’s metrics, which enables users to curate the site themselves. The team’s client-focused approach helps distinguish them from competitors.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of a law firm called Mesolella & Associates. We’re a private practice, servicing plaintiff civil justice, advocacy, personal injury, businesses, and litigation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Foster Web Marketing?

We needed resources to build a compressive website for our firm, leading our overall efforts to establish a digital presence across all mobile and desktop platforms. This included but was not limited to web design, social media consulting, and SEO strategy.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to create a website and implement an SEO strategy that would serve us for a vast amount of time.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We hired them over all other competitors because of their unbelievable customer service, one-on-one assistance, and customer-centric approach. They weren’t simply accruing a massive year-end cost. Rather, they could turn ideas, media, and blogs into tangible deliverables that immediately benefited both potential and existing clients.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We started from scratch, conducting initial meetings and teleconferences to educate their team about our mission, goals, practices, and daily tasks. Given their experience, they were able to create a web platform that assimilated all of our information and SEO goals. The site featured a user-friendly design, chat services to assist clients, and a data distribution service (DDS) that allowed us to internalize our web data and analyze it. Currently, they continue to oversee our SEO and digital marketing efforts.

What was the team composition?

We primarily worked with Chad (Business Development Strategist, Foster Web Marketing), a content assistant, a technical assistant, and media assistants.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Foster Web Marketing has built a beautiful, easy-to-use website, transforming our digital presence. Compared to our previous site, their web platform allows us to see all of our online metrics, review it, and implement adjustments to accommodate a dynamic client/location-based market. Instead of limiting our access to the DSS system and forcing us to go through them for simple changes, they’ve maintained full data transparency. This has empowered us to seamlessly modify the site ourselves without accruing unnecessary costs.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Working with them has been one of the easiest experiences I’ve ever had. There has never been a time where we haven’t received their best one-on-one service from their company. Chad and his team have made us feel like we’re their only client. It’s simply amazing to work with them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciate their customer service and data transparency. We have the ability to access our site on a level that no other company allows.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to mind.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of Clifton Law Office, a new firm practicing in personal injury and criminal defense law.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Foster Web Marketing?

I hired Foster Web Marketing to build a website and to digitally secure my documentation.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted a clean website that easy to navigate, informative, and allowed me to continually add content.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended to us by other attorneys.

I contacted them and they explained in detail my options and the services they provide. I gave them a budget and he created the package that would fit my initial needs while also allowing future growth.

Describe the project in detail.

Their project manager and design team conducted several phone meetings to discuss our options for color, practice areas, and content. After I sent them samples of websites I liked, we discussed my background, experience, personal life. We decided to go with a more personable content approach and their team sent me drafts of their work for revisions or comments.

Once content and designs were set, I provided the photos I wanted on the site. Then, they fully developed the site and sent it to me for approval. However, I decided to change the name of my firm and Foster Web changed everything to reflect my request.

After my final approval, we launched the site. Then, their team trained me on the document security system (DSS) program, content management, and other features.

What was the team composition?

I was assigned a project manager, a design team, and a content team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It is still very early, and we do not have metrics comparing the site to competing legal sites. However, the site is easy to use and I have complete control. I can add content daily and whenever I had problems learning to use the features, Foster Web immediately helped out.  

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

They were amazing in every aspect—management, communication, scheduling, content, training and follow up. Knowing that I am a new firm and on a limited budget, they tailored a plan to my needs.

They always had quick responses to all my questions. I was able to speak directly with their employees, and they sent everything to me to be approved. We worked together as a team and they listened closely to my feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their team is full of great people. I was very nervous starting my own practice, but they made the process enjoyable. I cannot say enough great things about Foster Web and how the project was handled.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I don't see any.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of marketing at the law firm DeLoach, Hofstra & Cavonis. We have six attorneys, and our practice areas are injury law, estate planning, elder law, real estate and association law, litigation, and probate.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Foster Web Marketing?

We had an old, static website that wasn’t mobile-friendly or bringing in clients. Our previous service provider gave us a quote for updating the old site and also for making a mobile-friendly version, which seemed redundant. We wanted one site that was visually stimulating, provided tracking, and also mobile-responsive; we thought they were trying to take advantage of us, so we decided to look for a new provider.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

From the beginning, we worked very closely on designing the site and making sure it matched our brand. Foster modified our content to make the site easier to find and attract more clients. They built a site that’s beautiful, responsive, and easy to navigate. One key component we wanted was a call-to-action, so Foster included a video with large buttons right on the home screen to schedule an appoint, get free information, or come to a seminar.

Now that the site’s built, we have 20 hours a month with Foster that we can use however we see fit, to talk about online review strategy to videos or anything in between. With our other provider, it was a complex process to get things changed on the site, and often it was done incorrectly, but Foster made it so I can do simple changes when necessary. If it’s something big, I can email the dev team and they take care of it. For example, they created a portal where our clients can watch videos, and they made a slideshow for a ribbon cutting ceremony we did.

We also participate in Foster’s reputation management services, which allows me to monitor and respond to reviews placed nearly anywhere online. I get an email notification whenever someone reviews us, and Foster provides a platform where all the reviews are collected and I can respond in there instead of visiting each separate social media site.

What is the team dynamic?

I’ve talked to a few team members and gotten to know them, but Cody Moulton [Digital Marketing Strategist] is my main liaison, which I like because it’s streamlined and efficient.

How did you come to work with Foster Web Marketing?

I originally heard about Foster at a legal marketing conference, and I liked their positivity and knowledgeability. After we left our old provider, I did an RFP and made sure to include Foster in the process. We liked that they’re an American company and have a good reputation, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

To date, we've spent approximately $60,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2016, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve had great success with the site; it’s increased over 19% in organic traffic since October 2016. People are finding us online, downloading our free information, reading reviews, filling out contact forms, using the live chat function, etc. We’re building our baseline still, but the site is definitely bringing in business.

How did Foster Web Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They're very responsive. When Hurricane Irma hit, our office lost power, so I asked Foster to put a notice on our website, and they had it up within an hour.

Cody is amazing, and I have a strategic phone call with him about once a month to talk about marketing and how we can improve the site. He doesn’t just answer questions, but he also gives recommendations and is willing to try new things.

What did you find most impressive about them?

When we first started, Foster knew we were apprehensive because of our previous provider. Chad Foster [Business Development Strategist] worked hard to make us feel appreciated and respected, and the whole team was honest and ethical, which is extremely important. A lot of companies don’t have their client’s best interests in mind, but Foster does and that makes them a great partner.

I consider them an industry leader because they’re innovative, creative, and always striving to do better. They offer ongoing education, so I can watch a webinar once a month and gain marketing skills to become more self-sufficient. They know a lot and are talented, but they don’t condescend or make you feel stupid. Everyone on the team is nice and enjoyable to work with and wants to make sure you understand so you can be a fully-contributing partner. They’re good people, and I can’t say enough great things about Foster.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I've been 100% satisfied. If anything, the relationship just gets stronger and stronger.

Advice for potential customers?

Don’t wait to hire them. The sooner you work with them, the sooner your site will get where it needs to be. Listen to Foster’s guidance and make time for all the help they offer.
