Sharlene Ann Ramsey Criminal Defense Attorney

Based in Strongsville, Ohio, The Law Office of Sharlene Ramsey came to Instaboost Media needing assistance managing their Google my Business Page (which was in a hard suspension). Just like the majority of our clients, Sharlene wanted more traffic both online and in her office. She previously worked with 4 other marketing companies and saw little to no results and ultimately resulted in a hard suspension on her

Google My Business Page.


Instaboost Media started from the ground up from getting her Google My Business page out of a hard suspension and back online, which helped boost her local presence on the local search engines, after that we submitted her business to local citations (yelp, yp, etc.), Then we teamed her up with our Legal Advertising Specialist Lauren who started out by creating Google Ads for three cities where Sharlene wanted to offer her services.


From there Law Office of Sharlene Ramsey's exposure grew tremendously. She started receiving numerous amounts of calls and resulted in 3 times ROI. Her online reputation on Google turned improved significantly which led to people contacting her. Communication was key when building her campaign and without help from both parties, her listing would not be what it has grown to be.

Feedback summary: 

After working with the team, the client noticed an uptick in business. The site now appears as the first search result for the surrounding area. The project manager was particularly focused on achieving success, communicating frequently to keep everyone on the same page.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re a service plumbing company. I’m one of two owners. It’s my job to handle the financials while the other owner manages jobs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Instaboost Media?

We wanted to boost our SEO and get our name out there.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

It was important for us to have a professional appearance on Google, with a site optimized for strong, local SEO. As plumbers, we didn’t have much experience with SEO at all, so their team started from the ground up. They’ve been working to improve our search result rankings for certain terms related to our business.

Their team has also done work with Google Ads and a website redesign for us in the past.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact who’s been my go-to for everything.

How did you come to work with Instaboost Media?

I was looking into SEO services online and found Instaboost Media. After that, I received something in the mail from them. I decided to give them a call and liked what they had to say. So, they became my SEO partner. We were quoted essentially half as much as other vendors charge. 

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $15,000–$20,000 over the past year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started our work together in November 2018, and it's ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Business has really picked up since we started working with them. Our team is pleased with the work because the results speak for themselves. I’m now showing on the first page consistently each day in my local area. We also come up highly for several other cities. I check our standing regularly and couldn’t be happier with the results. 

How did Instaboost Media perform from a project management standpoint?

Our account is handled with great care. Our account manager is a real go-getter. Despite our California-Michigan timezone difference, he makes consistent calls and is on the ball with everything. I want to be able to verify and validate his services here because of that. 

We communicate through email, text, and phone calls. It’s really easy to get on the phone with him and schedule calls. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They listen to us and aren’t afraid to try new things, which really stands out. I keep giving them more work because they keep doing such a great job, our account manager in particular. They’re more attentive and get better results than other companies I’ve worked with. Everything is done in a timely manner, in part because our project manager calls at least bi-weekly to make sure the project is going well. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have anything bad to say about them. It’s been a very nice working relationship, and I hope to continue to collaborate with them in the future.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Take the leap with them, investing whatever makes sense to you initially. They’ll deliver above and beyond your expectations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Instaboost Media?

We hired Instaboost Media to market our website.

We talked to several people before working with our main point of contact.

I believe Instaboost Media reached out to me through email. After seeing something that caught my eye, I called them. Our team really liked the content that we saw.

Our phone rings due to the work that their team does. It took a while for me to see results, but we’re seeing the progress now. We have no desire to stop working with the Instaboost Media team. Once our phone starts ringing, we go to work. We ask our customers about where they found us and they say through our website.

How did Instaboost Media perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re excellent. When they say they’re going to do something, they do it. Whenever I reach out, they respond right away. Our primary contact is timely and hardworking. If he weren’t fantastic, I would be honest. If we have immediate feedback for them through email, they set up an appointment time and call right away. Whenever we’ve had a request, they’ve addressed it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve done their job exceptionally well. Everything they said they were going to do to boost our website, they’ve done. I realize it takes a while to hit the front page of Google, but we’re recording all kinds of feedback and information to make that a reality.

Are there any areas they could improve?

While I would like to be on the first page of search results, they’ve offered different plans and packages for me. In case I want to upgrade, they make all of that information available to me. With them, people can pay the medium instead of the minimum.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

If clients have any questions or concerns, address them with Instaboost Media. Ask questions because they will respond and surely help.

What is the team composition?

Feedback summary: 

The client received more reviews and a higher volume of leads. After initially working with a second vendor, the client chose to keep Instaboost Media as its primary digital marketing partner. Customers can expect a knowledgable team that delivers on every requirement.

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 CEO at a moving company that opened up shop earlier this year. We serve homeowners and businesses, occasionally for moves that cover relatively long distances. We also do packaging services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Instaboost Media?

I hired them to help me with my web presence. I’m unfamiliar with the nuances of web design and Google ranking, and I wanted a partner who could draw an audience through online marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first project that I hired them for was a revamp of my company information on Google. Instaboost Media uploads pictures for me, as well as useful information about my business, such as our standard rates. In terms of ranking, they’ve helped me with my keyword strategy, and I think some ads as well.

The website that they delivered has four main pages. There’s a home page, an “about us” section, a list of the services that we provide, and a reviews page. At the end of the reviews page is a contact form that customers can use to connect with us.

What is the team composition?

I’ve had one web designer assigned to me throughout the project. 

How did you come to work with Instaboost Media?

They contacted me.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent just over $2,000 to date. The web design project was $1,000, and they charge a monthly rate for the other services.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in June 2019 with the Google information project, and then shortly after we moved into the site design. The partnership is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site looks amazing. They finished it very recently, and I’ve already seen a response on social media. Since they started helping with my Google presence, I’ve seen a notable increase in views and recognition, which leads to more calls. We also have over 30 5-star reviews on Google.

How did Instaboost Media perform from a project management standpoint?

I connect with Instaboost at least once a month. I’m talking to the same person every time, and he knows my project well. We communicated back and forth about the design of the site, and he did an excellent job of matching my vision.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They go above and beyond to meet my needs. They’re also experts when it comes to Google rank. I plan to keep them on as a partner as long as I can. We have a collaborative relationship, and they seem to truly care about my success. For example, I recently got a call from my contact at Instaboost, where he wanted to congratulate me on a professional accomplishment of mine.

I was working with another digital marketing agency when I hired Instaboost, and I got rid of them because I felt that the quality was incomparable. Instaboost just seemed to care more. That enough should tell you about how impressive they are.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s always room for improvement, but I can’t think of anything specific right now. I would recommend them to anyone, especially for a partnership like mine.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Keep up with their energy. They’re going to be invested in your business and will want to understand everything about it. That being said, they’re also easy to talk to, and if you keep communication lines open, you’ll see daily growth.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of Celtic Wood Floors, a flooring installation and refinishing company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Instaboost Media?

I was hoping to increase awareness of my company to generate more business.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They gathered several business requirements, including details about the location range I wanted to reach. After solidifying this information, they began developing strategies to increase my company’s visibility on search engines.

What is the team composition?

I worked with Caitlin (Web Content Specialist, Instaboost Media) and a few other members of their team.

How did you come to work with Instaboost Media?

I discovered Instaboost Media after searching online for digital marketing companies. From the very first conversation, they knew exactly what I was looking for in terms of advertising services. I ended up choosing them because their prices were more reasonable than the other firms I saw.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent approximately $3,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with them in 2017, and I’ve just recently decided to move jobs, which is why I'm ending the partnership.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Thanks to their efforts, I’ve had a steady stream of new business opportunities. When I first began working with them, I immediately saw a difference in the number of phone calls I was receiving compared to the previous year.

How did Instaboost Media perform from a project management standpoint?

They responded to every one of my calls in a friendly manner, and sent me periodic emails to let me know about my website’s search rankings. I had some questions at the beginning, and they were very helpful in answering them. We didn’t need to communicate very often for them to be successful.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Working with Instaboost Media was a completely different experience than I’ve had with other vendors. They were clear about their rates and the results their work would bring, and they achieved what they set out to do. They were also very affordable, especially given the impact that they delivered.

They were outstanding from start to finish. I’d recommend them to anyone else, including my new employer.

Are there any areas they could improve?

From my perspective, there is nothing they need to improve. The outcomes of this partnership have been phenomenal.

Instaboost retrieved and activated my Google listing, audited it, and corrected and amended it with my help, namely the provision of some information and pictures. They fleshed it out and planned posts.

They listed the site on 30–40 directories, in the context and confines of the particular mechanics of each one. They provide me with periodic physical reports about the performance of the website on search engines, as well as across a matrix of different rankings.

How did you come to work with Instaboost?

I get least three calls a week from SEO companies from all over the place, and they’re all frustrating. However, when I got one of these calls from Instaboost, it struck me differently, so I engaged with them and they made an offer to me. The deal sounded very good, especially in comparison to what I knew other companies offered.

How much have you invested with them?

They began with design services for one company, for $199 per month. Their deal was that, if I wouldn’t get to the front page of Google in 90 days from when we started, then they would stop billing until they got there.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in June 2018 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’ve seen a boost in my metrics but, more than that, I’ve just gained my first client. I’ve also had two other people contact me through the portal on my website.

How did Instaboost perform from a project management standpoint?

With only one exception, when I make a call, I get to speak to somebody. They also perform well in terms of giving me guidance on what it is we’re doing and why, and on how to understand the data and bar graphs.

It’s been an amazing experience, way beyond what I thought it would be like. They’re professional and energetic, and they really seem to have their system nailed down.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate their depth of knowledge and their professionalism. Whoever’s in charge of Instaboost has put together a great group of people. They project themselves as though they have numerous departments and people all over the place, even though they’re quite small. That’s hard to do, and it’s something that only comes after a lot of seasoning and evolution.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of any. I came into this not knowing much, and now I know quite a bit more than many other people. They’ve always been fair—when I told them that my website wasn’t on the first page anymore, they agreed not to charge me anymore.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

No.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Search rankings have improved dramatically since the engagement began. Instaboost Media's understanding of digital technologies helps them respond quickly to any inquiries or technical concerns that arose. They also offer useful tactical advice that was subsequently implemented.

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 own Twigery, a floral design studio in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. We handle everything from weddings and events for high-end customers to tourists picking up a single stem.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Instaboost Media?

Something happened with Google’s algorithm. We were no longer showing up at the top of the search results, even though we’d been voted best florist for the last seven years in Carmel-by-the-Sea.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Instaboost Media started by interviewing me about what was important, what the business was like, and what was our focus. They went over keywords with me to determine what would draw business to the shop.

They confirmed that our ranking changed not because of anything we’d done but because of Google. They made some suggestions for changes to our site, including adding more pictures. One photo that was showing up on our listing wasn't one of our photos. They worked with Google to get it removed.

While the main focus is Google, they also work on Bing and other search sites. They give me a monthly report. It shows me where we stand and how things have moved from last month to this month.

What is the team composition?

I had an initial contact who went over what they were going to do. Then for a while I worked with whoever got back to me when I called with a question. For at least the last seven months I've been dealing with Caitlin (web content specialist, Instaboost Media).

How did you come to work with Instaboost Media?

They sent me an email, so I called and spoke with them on the phone. They advised we try it out for a couple of months. I did some online research and looked at what others were saying about them on Yelp. They seemed to be reputable so I went with them.

How much have you invested with them?

It's $199 a month. I've spent almost $3,200 to date.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2017 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It took them 30–60 days to get us back up at the top of the results page. We’re one of the three companies that come up on the map when you search florist and Carmel. It’s really important to be there. We’ve noticed that we’re now getting more phone calls, inquiries, and orders being placed. They don't care how big or small we are. They're concerned about making us the best we can be online.

How did Instaboost Media perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team is excellent. It was a collaborative effort from the very beginning. I didn’t have a dedicated lead in the beginning so they had different people work with me. None of them ever let the ball drop. Caitlin now follows up with me on everything, which is extremely helpful. She sometimes calls just to check in. Most of the time we speak by phone. She calls me on my cell, which I prefer. She’s very responsive. I've been impressed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I kept getting calls from Google saying our listing was inaccurate. Caitlyn looked into it for me. She let me know that everything looks good and that's just Google’s way of doing marketing. I still get those calls but I can ignore them. I trust Instaboost Media that there aren’t any issues.

Are there any areas they could improve?

It would’ve been nice if they let me know when there was a change of personnel. My go-to person when I first started working with them left and they didn’t tell me. Improving that communication would be the only thing I’d change.
