Feedback summary: 

The SEO work High Level Marketing implemented has already garnered a lead. High Level's personable approach exemplifies their investment in the project. Their team consistently meets deadlines and delivers quality results.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the CEO and executive director of a health and fitness corporation. We specialize in holistic health including life coaching, personal training, nutrition, hypnotherapy, and motivational interviewing. We offer a whole package so our clients can develop a balanced lifestyle that optimizes their health.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with High Level Marketing?

We hired them primarily to increase web visibility, optimize SEO, and for target marketing. We wanted to target predominantly affluent and socioeconomically stable customers. Our business was new, and we wanted to organize our marketing strategy appropriately.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

High Level Marketing met with us in person to understand our business plan and ideas. Then, they developed a fantastic web page and incorporated our feedback. They are currently providing monthly SEO optimization and planning out how to market to our target audience.

What is the team composition?

We work with two project managers and an SEO manager.

How did you come to work with High Level Marketing?

I liked their portfolio and client list. I reviewed their previous work and was impressed. Since the beginning, our managers have been phenomenal.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested $5,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the engagement in April 2018 and it is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Thus far, given the fact that we've been open for less than two days, we already have a lead and that client has scheduled an appointment. Overall, we are content with their work so far.

How did High Level Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Two of their project managers are phenomenal to work with. However, I did have some communication issues with one of their managers in the beginning. Occasionally, I sent her emails containing the information she requested, but she would email me back asking for the documents I just sent her. It was frustrating, but we worked it out in the end. We communicate primarily through email, sometimes phone calls, and rarely through text.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are personally invested in our business. They take a personal approach and aren’t just in it for the money. Their team closely follow our feedback.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their initial prototype of the web page wasn’t thoroughly reviewed. There were pictures that were missing furniture and some typos. We had to review it ourselves and make some editorial changes. However, this might just be a personal complaint as I tend to be quite anal.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Verbalize your expectations and communicate clearly what you want.

Diligent project management and a learned understanding of the industry were key in creating a site and logo that suited the business superbly. The team communicated effectively and delivered all aspects of the project on time.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a co-founder of Detroit Boxed Socks. We collaborate with local artists and print unique designs on luxury dress socks. We also donate a portion of our sales to Beyond Basics, which provides books, tutors, and other resources to Detroit public school students.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with High Level Marketing?

We approached them with the primary goal of improving our site’s design to more effectively compete with larger department stores.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

After we provided fonts and a general idea of what we were hoping for on the site, they took a lead on the design and development in creating a custom e-commerce site. They also designed a logo that suited our business very well. After consulting with them, we decided to opt out of SEO services due to the nature of our competitors the retail industry. They were very smart and honest throughout the project.

The new site includes a blog function, and the administrative end of the site is very intuitive. It’s easy for us to make changes and updates when necessary. They used their own code to build the site, as opposed to a CMS template.

What is the team composition?

I worked with a sales director in the beginning of the project, and moved to work with a project manager and a content strategist as the engagement progressed.

How did you come to work with High Level Marketing?

I used to work in the sales department at High Level Marketing, so I had a preexisting relationship with them. I know that with their team, I was going to get an intuitive, high-quality site that would allow me to make changes without the need for additional outside resources.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested about $5,000 in the site before hosting fees, which are about $30/month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2017, and the site launched about four months later in December. They still provide occasional maintenance services as necessary.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve gotten a lot of positive feedback from users, which mostly focuses on its professional appearance and intuitive layout.

How did High Level Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

The team was very effective. Everything was delivered on time and we communicated regularly throughout the process. I had no problems with customer service, and we appreciated their attentive project management. We primarily communicated via phone and email, with several occasional face-to-face meetings as necessary.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The administrative end of the site is easy to use and incredibly helpful in my day-to-day work. Their customer service was also very impressive. They followed the project closely from start to finish, which made for a very simple and pleasant experience.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Afford them the freedom to do what they’re good at. Many business owners want to take control during these types of projects, and we we’re very happy that we gave them creative agency. They’re professionals with a lot of experience that can benefit you and your business.

Feedback summary: 

In addition to strong ROI, the site has generated positive user feedback and the number of new leads has risen considerably. The team’s ability to execute design and SEO strategy distinguish them from other vendors. They also have effective communication and efficient workflows.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of a property management firm. We manage rental properties, homeowners associations, and condo owner associations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire High Level Marketing?

We hired High Level Marketing to design a website that would provide prospective owners and tenants with information about our services and processes.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to generate owner and investor leads through the site.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Several vendors specialized in canned property management or real estate websites, but we weren’t happy with them because their offerings were outdated and not fully-customizable. We selected High Level Marketing because they could create a custom website that allowed to make quick and easy changes at no additional cost. In addition, their CMS was a cost-saver and user-friendly for employees at any level.

Describe the project in detail.

I oversaw most of the project on our end. We had a strategy meeting where they got our goals and some ideas for the design. Next, they built the site and did follow-up design revisions per our requests. We have continued to use their services for SEO and PPC management.

What was the team composition?

The account manager is my main point of contact. In total, I’ve worked directly with three people including the project manager and designer, who handle my SEO and PPC.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Both current and prospective clients have praised the site. Of the four PPC vendors we’ve engaged, High Level Marketing is the only one we’ve been happy with. The number of new business calls rose significantly after we switched to their team. The other firms just wanted to spend our money and didn’t care about results.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Both the regular reports and check-in phone calls are very effective. Recently, we requested some changes via phone and they responded quickly; the results were immediate. Overall, the team is very efficient and understands our needs; we don’t have to micromanage them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

While several firms can design sites, very few can handle lead generation. High Level Marketing does both well with a straightforward approach.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We had in-person meetings at the start of the engagement, but everything else has been remote. More face-to-face communication would help build a closer partnership.

The launched site increased the company’s online presence, landing them on Google’s page 1 for multiple search terms and adding over 25,000 web contacts. This growing audience corresponded to a steady increase in e-commerce sales, thanks to High Level Marketing’s exemplary skills.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the marketing manager and one-person marketing department for a company in Novi, Michigan. I handle everything related to marketing issues for the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with High Level Marketing?

Clearly, it’s ideal for a company to have a digital presence so that their present and future customers can learn about the company, their products, and services. 

Visitors can interact with us not only during business hours but while employees are finished with their work day, sleeping, or on vacation. A website markets on a company’s behalf consistently 24/7/365.  We hired High Level Marketing to make the most of our digital presence and leverage our site to grow our marketing audience. We also count on them to keep us informed as to changes in the digital world that affect our success.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

High Level Marketing worked with us to develop the overall design of the site and offered ideas about how to encourage visitor engagement. This included forms that allow visitors to ask questions, request a return, register their new product, read news and announcements, find a local contractor, and more. All of these interactions resulted in new contacts with whom to continue the HVAC conversation.

They also host our site, offer technical and SEO support.  They’ve landed us on page 1 of Google for various search terms, which we’re pleased to see. They’ve also done some design work for our literature. They offer other services that we haven't taken advantage of yet.

How did you come to work with High Level Marketing?

I think I interviewed 5 or 6 different developer companies before choosing High Level Marketing. I interviewed a company that came recommended to me out of California, but I wanted to support Michigan business, and I wanted to find a company that would best fit our future goals and needs for the website—one that offered great service once we were engaged with them. High Level Marketing really fit those needs.

How much have you invested with High Level Marketing?

We pay a monthly maintenance fee; annual costs are roughly $8,000–$10,000. In terms of the hours they work, that would be best answered by them. My concern lies in the results they provide vs worrying about the hours they spend getting those results.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our work with High Level Marketing is ongoing, and we’ve been working together since 2011. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or impact of the engagement?

We are 100% satisfied with High Level Marketing’s work, and they have helped our company grow our online presence. We’ve probably added over 25,000 contacts via the website, and I am able to export that information in any way I need. I also can maintain the information, and I can dive into the details. I know who has ordered from us, who has submitted a product registration, and who has asked to return a product. I also can see specific information about the ways that people engage with us.

Our primary customer is a wholesaler, and they do not buy from us online. But, we do sell replacement parts online for folks who would prefer to do the replacements themselves. If I go to Google Analytics, I can see that the audience who visits our site is growing every year, and our sales have grown every single year as well. We are able to market specifically to those folks, offer them promotions, and remind them to change their vapor pads or their air filters. The e-commerce portion of the site has been a real benefit.

What did you find most impressive about High Level Marketing?

A lot of companies will engage a new customer and then forget about them. High Level Marketing does not do that. Their service is exemplary. They have grown quite a bit over the last 5 years; no matter who you speak with at the company, they’re helpful, professional, knowledgeable, and courteous. I’ve never had a bad experience with anyone there.

The response from the company is immediate, so you never have to wait a long time for someone to respond to any questions or concerns you may have. They’ve done a really beautiful job in terms of hiring. Their business growth has been invisible to their customers (i.e. they haven't closed their offices to expand or make internal changes). The only reason we know they’ve grown is they said they’ve added employees and a second floor to the office building.

Are there any areas High Level Marketing could improve?

I can't think of anything on which High Level Marketing could improve. They’re experts in the digital world. I’m always trying to educate myself, and I feel like their knowledge is above and beyond everything I’ve learned. I don't have all the terminology at my fingertips, but High Level Marketing definitely seems to stay on top of industry trends.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with High Level Marketing?

I would suggest that prospective High Level Marketing customers do their homework and understand what might be required of them to build a website or move an existing website. They should have all of their IT and website contacts lined up so High Level Marketing will know who to work with to make the transfer. Be sure to include anyone within your company who has an IT perspective. I definitely had questions I could not answer when we made the move, and it was helpful to have those contacts ready.

    Once High Level Marketing engages you, they don't raise your costs because they know that you already have invested your time and money with them. They are concerned about offering you the best value for your money.

High Level Marketing has demonstrably increased brand recognition through their digital marketing efforts. Professional and organized, they delivered valuable reporting on their progress. Their services were much appreciated.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a beverage company. It's a seven-year-old company based in Michigan. The beverage was created from an 80-year-old recipe. We are currently promoting our brand. We are doing business with a number of locations. We are currently interfacing with Meijer and Whole Foods. We're waiting on Kroger. We have at least 56 other companies that are selling our product. We are very active at Eastern Market and  the Lathrup Village Farmers Market.

What is your position?

I am the chief operating officer. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with High Level Marketing?

We had our website created by High Level Marketing. We've done some Facebook promotions. We're looking at Facebook to create a business page. We don't sell the tea from our website yet, but we want to use our website and social media to push our brand recognition.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They simply created our website and recently started Internet marketing and reporting. They will mail me regular reports on our website traffic and performance.

How did you come to work with High Level Marketing?

I had a personal referral.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The cost is confidential, but it was an important and influential project for our small company.

What is the status of this engagement?

I have been working with them for a year.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The reason I'm with them is because initially I came in as an investor. The company had financial difficulty at one time. Our job now is promoting the brand. Brand recognition has improved substantially. 

There are some new areas that we're working on improving. But, nobody becomes a success overnight, so it takes some time. Every company has areas that need improvement. We're still working on improving those aspects of our company. Our long-term goal is to become a household brand name.

How did High Level Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They are responsible and organized. I am satisfied with their project management.

What distinguishes High Level Marketing from other providers?

High Level Marketing did an excellent job on our website. I have no complaints. I did ask Courtney [McKenna, key account executive at High Level Marketing] to send me a list of all the items that come with the website. I want to figure out what services High Level Marketing could also provide to enhance our online presence further. We haven't used them for anything else. After I get that report, we will probably pick up some other services.

Is there anything High Level Marketing could have improved or done differently?

No. It was a positive result.

    I think it is an excellent firm if you're looking for a website. It depends on what you're seeking as a business owner.
