BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Director of Marketing for FVF Law Firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Neon Ambition?

We initially found Neon Ambition when we were looking for a PPC provider. We really liked their approach to SEO and ended up hiring them to as a longterm SEO partner. We challenged them to help us capture more of the market share and we feel they have delivered.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to capture more of the personal injury digital market share in central Texas.

SOLUTION

How did you select Neon Ambition?

We considered 3 companies for PPC and hire Neon Ambition for both PPC and SEO because we really liked their focus on data driven processes and transparency. Myself, the founders of the firm, and our COO were involved in the decision.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Neon Ambition provides a great deal of competitive research. They also write and post 8 blog pieces to our website each month and build 8-15 links per month. We review all content before it is posted to the website. We are very pleased with all of Neon Ambition's work.

What was the team composition?

The team has grown over time. When we started, we had about 5 people on the team, it has grown to 7 people.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Over organic website traffic has over doubled since we started working with Neon Ambition. We are very happy with the increase in potential leads.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Neon Ambition does a great job moving our projects forward and they are always very respective to feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I am impressed by a lot of things about Neon Ambition. Some of my favorite are their transparency and dedication to data driven decision making. I've worked with other digital agencies in the past that claim everything is proprietary and don't share how they make decisions or even what exactly they are doing. Neon Ambition is an open book.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No. We thoroughly enjoy working with Neon Ambition.

Feedback summary: 

The client is very happy with their new website and reports increases in important metrics like web traffic and click-throughs. Efficient and readily available, the team communicates well and thinks at a high-level. Customers can expect a knowledgeable partner that is easy to work with.

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 am a lawyer and the owner of a law firm with two offices. I run both offices.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Neon Ambition?

I am a personal injury lawyer. I am trying to generate more business by advertising for car accidents and things like that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I have done PPC campaigns in the past that worked fine, but they very expensive. I looked into SEO, which is what Neon Ambition does for me. I wasn’t as familiar with SEO, and they basically just helped me out from the ground up. 

I came to them with the intention of doing PPC, which was my first idea. Then, I started asking more questions about SEO. They explained that no matter what they did, they’d need to build a new website. My existing site wasn’t very good, so they built a new one to bring me new leads. The website is very nice, and I believe it was done using WordPress. It is much more active than my previous one, and I like it. They also write articles for my website as well as blogs to create different links back to the actual website as people are searching online.

We are probably going to start doing PPC soon, but right now, we are still working the SEO angle.

What is the team composition?

Initially, I worked with Jordan (Founder), and he gave me the blueprint for the company and what they do. After that, I spoke to several different people with various duties and responsibilities there. 

My primary contact has been Christina (Account Manager), and she’s fantastic. She has been helping me out, answering emails, and keeping me up to date on whatever they are doing.

How did you come to work with Neon Ambition?

I just knew that digital marketing is the future and that I had to do it. I had been thinking about it, and I Googled it. There are companies like Neon Ambition in every big city in Texas and even in some of the smaller cities. 

I thought that Austin, being the Silicon Valley junior, would have the best people to do this effectively. I Googled SEO companies in Austin, and I came across Neon Ambition. I started reading their good reviews, one of which I saw on Clutch.

How much have you invested in them?

So far, I think I have paid them around $35,000–$40,000. It will probably end up being a total of $50,000–$55,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in November 2019. The website launched in February of this year, and I am still working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The web traffic is there, and the number of clicks to my website and all of those numbers have been starting to increase over the last 2–3 months. We haven’t turned around any real leads or closed cases, but I’m being patient. My main goal is to get activity, and that is happening. People are paying more attention to my website.

How did Neon Ambition perform from a project management standpoint?

I was looking for company that was experienced, efficient, and effective, and I found all three in Neon Ambition. They communicate well and are easily accessible. My experience with Neon Ambition has been fantastic.

Unfortunately, like every business in the world, and especially in the US, the pandemic has slowed things down. However, they are easy to work with and always available. Things are done right. We mostly communicate through email. They send me updates with links and various agendas of things they have done and things to do.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

This is a hard question; I would have to be doing different projects with different providers to compare. I just like that they are in Austin and I am from Austin originally. I also like the way they communicate and the way they think. From what I’ve seen so far, they are pretty good at what they do compared to others.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t really know the business that well to say where they can improve. If I had to pick something, they could maybe set better expectations. I had an idea in my mind of where I would be now, but that could’ve been due to my lack of SEO knowledge. 

There was one period where I thought I was not getting my money’s worth, so I asked Jordan more questions and tried to see if I really wanted to continue with SEO. They could maybe better explain what you can expect with a long-term SEO project.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

People need to do their research and understand what SEO and PPC are, amongst Neon Ambition’s other services. They need to be patient and just really let Neon Ambition know what it is they are after once they have some general knowledge of the different types of campaigns. I had this whole mindset about PPC and SEO. The little things that I had researched online concerning SEO said these projects take anywhere from 3–6 months, or a year and beyond sometimes, whereas PPC is expensive, but you get a quick turnaround for leads. Whoever wants to work with them really needs to know what they want and to be patient.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the marketing director at NameStormers. We headquarter in Austin, Texas and have been naming for over 30 years. We name companies, products & services as well as conduct trademark, domain, and linguistic screening for start-up, non-profits, and Fortune 500s alike.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Neon Ambition?

With a focus on rebranding and ramping up our SEO and content marketing strategy, we knew as a small business of only 4 employees, that we desperately needed help. With zero knowledge of how to optimize our digital presence for SEO or the best strategies for content creation, we partnered with Neon Ambition.

What were your goals for this project?

To move up in the organic Google search rankings for important keywords in our line of work and to gain credibility as a forward-thinking company by providing valuable content.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I wanted to support a local business if at all possible so I started Google searching "Austin content marketing" and Neon came up as one of the first suggestions. We had interviewed one other sole freelancer, but after meeting with Jordan, I quickly saw the value of the whole team he has built as opposed to just one person with a limited skill set.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

At first meeting, Neon worked hard to understand our business inside and out and help us to set goals for what we hoped to achieve. From a keyword search to a technical audit of our website, we received more than we expected from the get-go. We then received a plan tailored specifically for us that detailed how Neon would help us through specific action items and deliverables. This plan included monthly blog posts, content offers, backlinks, consulting, and more.

What was the team composition?

I worked with 2-3 team members on a consistent basis that all specialized in something different.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our organic Google rankings have improved every month as we are starting to see our company show up on the 2nd and 3rd pages of Google for certain important keywords instead of the 20th. Thanks to the content offers Neon has created, we now have collateral we are proud to send to our current or prospective clients. We also have built a greater database of contacts in Hubspot to help spur our email marketing campaigns forward to hopefully gain more leads.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

After some initial employee turnover and shifting on the Neon team, we were given a team of people we are super happy with that are responsive, knowledgeable, and helpful. They are willing to work with our requests, but also challenge us to stay on course when we get distracted or stray from our goals.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I'm impressed by the knowledge and expertise of their SEO expert and the writing quality from the copywriting team. The copywriting team can take very little information from us, do some further research and produce an extremely thoughtful and spot-on piece of content that even I am able to learn from.

Are there any areas for improvement?

At times I feel like it takes longer than expected to receive drafts for the content offers. I also get confused about what the project deliverables are and everything we can expect to receive.

The partner was formerly receiving less than 500 website views and had a conversion rate of zero, now they receive 4,6000 and 50–60 respectively. Neon Ambition meets expectations and consistently asks for feedback. Organization and transparency are hallmarks of their high-quality work.

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 a business manager for Paradisa Homes LLC. I handle all marketing, HR, project budgeting, and a variety of other tasks. We’re a general contractor and residential home builder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Neon Ambition?

Before the engagement, we had very little SEO strategy — in fact, we had none — so our traffic numbers were low, and overall digital presence was very weak.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Primarily, Neon Ambition provides SEO strategy services and implementation of improvements with regard to that strategy. They handle content writing, completed an entire website revision, and conduct periodic audits. Essentially, their team constantly helps us improve to make sure we stay competitive.

What is the team composition?

I interact with three individuals — an account manager, a content writer, and an individual who handles technical aspects such as backend coding and development.

How did you come to work with Neon Ambition?

The relationship was established with the individual who handled marketing before I got to the company. I picked up the relationship with Neon Ambition when that individual moved on.

How much have you invested with them?

We invest about $37,000 a year.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement started in May 2017, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Formerly, we’d get less than 500 views on our website. Now, we get over 4,600 and that rate has increased year-over-year. We used to have zero conversions and now we receive between 50–60 per month.

Our first account manager held the status quo, but I’ve seen significant improvement with our new and current one. They’re on top of things as well as are very organized and transparent. They send biweekly agendas and reports, and we go through metrics once a month. In the last year, I’ve seen a significant improvement in a consistent request for my feedback, which I really appreciate.

How did Neon Ambition perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve done fairly well with project management. We’ve had certain hiccups in the past with our website revision where there were certain things that should’ve been considered in the beginning, but we realized midway through that we forgot.

However, that happens with almost every project to a certain degree, we can’t necessarily pin down all the variables because things arise naturally. The overall communication has been really consistent.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I have a really personable relationship with all the individuals I interact with; this is simple but important. All of them are very professional and always ask how I’m doing. They’re genuine and sincere, and I enjoy our partnership on a personal level.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The best advice I can give is to come to the table with questions up front; don’t just show up and be vague. Then, they’ll provide better advice and specific answers instead of trying to cover an exceptional amount of ground that doesn’t necessarily meet project needs.
