The Review
Feedback summary: 

The improved appearance of the site and SEO efforts have contributed to an increase in overall sales and customer interest. Over The Top SEO has been a critical partner in establishing a market presence. Their expertise coupled with determination makes them a valuable asset for the project.

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 owner and founder of Best Rubber Mulch. We’re an online seller of rubber mulch for playground surfacing, equestrian landscaping, military courses, etc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Over The Top SEO?

In the 12 years since we went into business, we’ve worked with two SEO firms and they both weren’t the right fit. We needed to find a company that had SEO experience working with national firms and accounts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Over The Top SEO rebuilt almost every aspect of our website from scratch to clean up the previous team’s work. Specifically, they repaired our site’s shopping cart feature and fixed the bugs. Additionally, they’re developing keywords and creating relevant content for the site.

What is the team composition?

They provide a knowledgeable team to work on the project.

How did you come to work with Over The Top SEO?

I researched several companies and contacted the top five that I discovered. Over The Top SEO asked the right questions and showed us their detailed approach to our specific issues. Their confidence and expertise were exactly what we needed and they seemed capable as a team.  

How much have you invested in them?

We’ve spent between $25,000–$100,000 per year, depending on the tasks and goals.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2018, and we have an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Over The Top SEO’s efforts have helped increase the monthly quote requests that we receive, changing from 100 to 1,500 a month. We’ve also seen a 50%–60% increase in monthly sales. We’re also currently ranking on the first page of search results on Google, which is a significant improvement from where we used to be. Additionally, the flow of the site is much smoother and more usable for our customers and encourages business. 

How did Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re a very communicative and thorough team. We receive weekly emails from their team and they provide two reports a month. There are several people available for phone calls and questions. They give us plenty of opportunities to ask questions and hear their recommendations. For example, if a task is due by Friday, they’ll have it done by Wednesday so we can give them our feedback. Over The Top SEO is genuinely dedicated to achieving our goal and they don’t take shortcuts.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their team is passionate about achieving success and their goals align with ours. They tailor their process to the individual client, understand the specific business, and they care about the work. We’re impressed by the milestones they’ve hit for us, and we’re excited to continue working with them into our busiest season.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There isn’t anything they could improve on–they should continue with what they’re doing.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

The best thing you can do is trust their expertise and be patient. SEO results don’t appear overnight, but Over The Top SEO will do the process right. Stay in contact and never be afraid to ask questions.

For what projects/services did your company hire Over The Top SEO?

We needed help increasing our client flow, as well as someone to take care of our website.

We wanted to be on the first page of Google results in order to get more job leads. We also wanted to build a new website that will attract as many customers as possible.

What was the team composition?

In addition to Guy, we work with a customer account manager, a writer/designer for our YouTube channel, and a technical support expert.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Our website is new and improved. We’re now getting a good flow of customers from the site. They’ve made our YouTube channel viral and different from that of our competitors.

Their dedicated team of specialists do a great job for us. They’re there for every inquiry we may have. We communicate mostly through the email, WhatsApp, and Skype. Our customer account manager always pushes as quickly as possible for an efficient resolution to any issue.

What impresses you about the Over The Top SEO?

Their approach was different from the beginning, offering lots of patience good advice. I can send them a message at any time of day and get a reply—literally 24/7 support.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It would be nice if they could start charging us in Canadian dollars so we can avoid the exchange rate.

Feedback summary: 

The collaboration was ended after four months of no results and only empty promises. While their sales team was proactively convincing that there would be results, their onboarding process took over a month to begin and their reports were unhelpful and seemed to be recycled from other projects.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m owner and CEO of Vizilok. We manufacture and sell the commercial privacy locks with the "in-use" or "vacant" embedded indicator.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Over The Top SEO?

We’ve had an e-commerce website for a while but needed to improve our sales by attracting more organic traffic.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them online and chose them based on their ranking on Google and positive reviews, which I now know were fake.

Describe the project in detail.

We needed to execute a combination of tactics based on a core strategy of content generation for increasing the traffic to our website. This included a full website audit, competitive analysis, and content development.

Their sales person was very convincing and promised that we would get performance and activity reports every two weeks. Nobody from the development team contacted me for a long time, even though I submitted a very detailed onboarding application. They didn’t even request access to our development platform. After I insisted that they needed to start working on my website and gave them an access to the backend, I noticed several log-ins from different countries like Ukraine, Russia, etc., which seemed odd to me.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Our website’s traffic decreased after four months of working with them and paying $1,000 per month. They sent me a couple of reports with generic descriptions of what is SEO, as well as one report for some other company. They didn’t even bother to change the name under the graphs.

They did send me a competition list from Google searches and a few search keywords, but it was all something I already had because my web store has existed for over five years. They provided no useful data nor reports on my website’s activity as they promised.

How did the Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

The project management team does not exist or wasn’t introduced to me. It was always a different person sending me useless reports.

What impresses you about the Over The Top SEO?

Their sales people are great. They managed to sell a service they do not provide and then kept making promises to make sure that the money was paid.

Are there any areas for improvement?

This is a scam and I lost $4,000. I don't want other companies to lose their money and time as well. It’s no good that such phantom companies and services can exist and cheat small businesses of their hard earned money.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of Abbys Photography.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Over The Top SEO?

We were looking to take a new approach to online marketing.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to bring in more leads and achieve top rankings in our niche.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Friends of ours recommended searching online for SEO providers, and Over The Top SEO was always one of the top results.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

They performed a thorough analysis of our business needs and online presence, devising ways to improve all our metrics. They then presented us with an account manager, a team, and some starting steps to take. This process continued for several weeks, during which they answered questions and incorporated comments and input from us.

In the end, they gave us an online marketing strategy (including link-building and off-site SEO) designed, customized, and optimized to attain our organization’s goals. We've seen the results of their work and hope to further our partnership.

What was the team composition?

We had a lot of contact with the account manager and have also worked with their content manager, marketing manager, SEO experts, and a few others.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

When we approached Over The Top SEO, we were in a bad place, spending too much on online marketing strategies that produced minimal ROI. Shortly after we implemented our new marketing strategies, our organic traffic increased almost twofold. We also saw substantial lead growth and our conversion rate rose by nearly 50%. Their team has helped us achieve significant improvement in both our customer base and revenue, and we plan to continue working with them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Over the Top SEO’s team has shown amazing expertise in handling our business. Open and receptive, they always keep the communication flowing, giving us their full attention.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Our organization benefited immensely from working with Over The Top SEO. We’re fully convinced that the best people are handling our online marketing strategies. They lived up to their word, which is a rarity these days.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I can see.

We wanted to improve our conversion rates and expand our customer base.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to have measurable improvement in page ranks, content engagement, bounce rates and overall conversions.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Over The Top was consistently at the top of my searches for professional next-level SEO services. Seeing as they could market themselves so well, I thought they would be the right experts for our business.

Describe the project in detail.

They conducted an initial meeting which was very informal, but every member of their team took their time to understand the company and our goals. They immediately articulated a marketing plan that covered details that we hadn´t even thought about.

They are currently continuing to create content, provide SEO implementation, and are optimizing/redesigning our conversion funnel. 

What was the team composition?

We work with the head of each department including graphic design, content, marketing, and development. The company´s CEO is also present at all the meetings.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Content production increased by 75%, and conversions increased by 60%. This translated into more sales and revenues. We also see constant growth of our customer base and are now able to realistically project a nationwide business expansion in the next year. We find it easier to get contracts with large companies because of our content and our redesigned conversion funnel.

How did the Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

They really take care of every detail of the project, and their teams do a great job articulating objectives and setting goals. We never experience any delays or setbacks during the whole process. After a few weeks, they helped us organize our teams so we could keep up with the new demand.

They impress us with their ability to translate our perceived problems into opportunities and how knowledgeable they are. We are learning a lot about online marketing and content creation with them, and they bring the excitement back to our business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Over The Top SEO?

We hired them to assist with SEO and brand awareness.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to make more people aware of our festival, which is held twice a year. We wanted to reach as many people as possible within our community.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were referred to Over The Top SEO by our CEO's colleague, who owns a local motor business and saw amazing results after working with them.

Describe the project in detail.

We’ve given the control over to their team since we don’t have much experience in the world of marketing.

What was the team composition?

The size of the team has never changed. We always have a dedicated writer, designer, developer, and two people from their SEO department

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

The work they’ve done for us is truly remarkable, judging by the sheer volume of people who came to our website and signed up to see the festival. Our attendance has grown from 1,000–2,500 to 15,000–20,000 people per event, and it’s all thanks to the amazing team at Over The Top SEO.

How did the Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

We don’t have an active role in the management of the campaign. However, we are very happy with that decision since Over The Top SEO is always organized. From the start, we’ve had a dedicated group chat on Slack for instant communication. This also allows us to be fully involved in everything, from the brainstorming to the execution. We are always up-to-date with our marketing visibility.

What impresses you about the Over The Top SEO?

We are impressed with their ability to live up to their promises. It’s so rare these days to find people with such great abilities. Everyone talks and talks about how good they are, but these folks come in and actually do things well.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner of a studio that deals with special art items.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Over The Top SEO?

We hired them to do our SEO and get us more leads.

What were your goals for this project?

We’ve been a word of mouth company for our entire existence, so we wanted to step outside of our turf’s boundaries and get more people to come see our inventory. We decided to try online SEO. Our goals were to reach out to the people outside of our business circle and make people come to see us from all over the country.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online for “Professional SEO” firms because we were tired of going with amateurs. We figured if a company would rank themselves by such a keyword, they must be fairly knowledgeable. We tried a few companies from 2016 to 2017 before finding Over the Top SEO. Communication is what got us to go with them in the end.

Describe the project in detail.

The minute we signed up, we were invited to a private chat with all the team members that were assigned to our project. We brainstormed our goals and how to expand them.

What was the team composition?

We had a dedicated project manager but we also talked with senior members of Over The Top SEO.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any statistics or metrics that speak to the quality of their work and impact of the engagement?

Our ROI has increased by over 900% from the day we met Over The Top SEO. We started as a small, local business and now we’re getting traction from all over the US. We’ve sold more artifacts and art items in the past year that we had in the past 5 years. We rank for all of the keywords we initially aimed for and are continuing to grow.

How did the Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated via Slack, email, and phone. We’re proud of our decision to allow Over The Top SEO to take the lead in this relationship. They were very organized and knew what each person's tasks were. They also allowed us to be much more organized in our operation as well.

What impresses you about the Over The Top SEO?

Their ability to rank themselves in comparison with all SEO companies in the world stood out to us. They know their game very well and each and every person who works for them is well aware of their role in the company. Finally, they actually gave us results, which will increase our revenue and allow us to grow and expand.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

From getting the client mentioned in top publications to increasing backlinks, Over The Top SEO’s transparent project management and creative methodology produced dramatic results.

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 CTO of a rapidly growing web platform that allows academics to share their research worldwide. We have about 18 employees right now. Academics use our platform to get a deep analysis on everything that happens in their research field. We’re at nearly 50 million users right now and growing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Over the Top SEO?

In the beginning, we didn't know if we should hire an outside company to help us with our outreach campaigns or if we should do that work internally. Eventually, we hired Over the Top SEO to do all of the outreach and SEO [search engine optimization] for our company, and we’re very happy we did. We’re thrilled with their performance. They pursue a unique methodology.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Over the Top SEO helped us raise almost $17 million in two years, and we’ve had our company featured in almost every notable publication in the world. We’ve been in Wired, Fortune, The Economist, Washington Post, LA Times, New York Times, TechCrunch, Bloomberg, and Forbes. The list is endless. We stopped doing outreach around October 2015, and then we started concentrating on SEO, and everything is still going pretty well.

How did you come to work with Over the Top SEO?

We started working with Over the Top SEO almost by accident. We were referred to them, and we talked to them a few times, but then we chose to hire a different company that ended up doing a terrible job. They were garbage. About a year later, one of our colleagues mentioned Over the Top SEO again, and then we started talking with their CEO. Our work has been great since then.

How much have you invested with Over the Top SEO?

We spend between $500,000 and $750,000 a year with Over the Top SEO. They do pretty much everything for us.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Over the Top SEO in 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Over the Top SEO has done some pretty special stuff with our company. With other SEO companies, you kind of have to chase your own tail, and they keep a lot of aspects of their work hidden. When we started working with Over the Top SEO, we learned that that level of secrecy is unnecessary. Now we know exactly what’s happening on our website, and it’s fun. We get a live feed on every backlink that comes to our website and every article that is written for us. We know where it was posted, how effective it was, how many people it reached, and so on. We can evaluate everything Over the Top SEO does before it goes live. The control is fully in our hands.

Over The Top SEO helped us get into a lot of academic and educational websites throughout the country and around the world. They also helped us earn Google’s trust. From 2008 to 2011, nothing much happened with our website in terms of outreach. Our “trust score” around that time was maybe 13 or 15, but now it’s pretty high. We can see all the different websites that are connecting to us, and they’re all quality websites. Over the Top SEO is doing terrific work on that angle, and we’re happy with that.

How did Over the Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

Over the Top SEO delivered everything on time, they are organized, and easy to talk to. They have great communication skills.

What did you find most impressive about Over the Top SEO?

Over the Top SEO helps us with anything we need with our website. They refurbished it, and that project was completed without any issues.

Are there any areas Over the Top SEO could improve?

I can't think of any areas that Over the Top SEO could improve. I have no complaints.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Over the Top SEO?

I would tell potential Over the Top SEO customers to go with their gut because these guys are not your typical SEO company. They’re not the kind of company that asks for a lot of money and doesn’t deliver. In terms of quality and advice on how to begin a project, I would tell potential customers to take Over the Top SEO’s advice. They know what they’re doing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Over The Top SEO?

We needed to get our phone to ring consistently and spread the word on our business since we're a fairly new company.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Over The Top SEO helped us build our current strategy for local outreach to local communities on a 45-mile radius from Deerfield Beach. They took care of everything related to online marketing, social media, pay-per-click and organic results. Over The Top SEO's team sat down and taught me the key terms for everything related to their work, and I was also given access to a portal with live feeds of everything being done. Over The Top SEO built our website and continued to update its content; the site is SEO-ready. They also created our newsletters, generating constant content for our potential clients in the area.

In the beginning, we had a set of thoughts around what would be best for our company, but, after meeting with Over The Top SEO and talking about our needs, many of those priorities changed. They really taught us how to make the best use of online marketing.

How did you come to work with Over The Top SEO?

We found Over The Top SEO online through a Google search. I was initially looking for a web designer, but I read an article about the importance of combining design with SEO, so I decided to start on that front. I googled phrases like "best SEO experts", and found Over The Top SEO listed in the regular search. I knew that someone could buy a position within the sponsored links, but you can't buy the ones below. I gave Over The Top SEO a call and found them to be nice and genuine people. The relationship has been good since then.

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

Our marketing budget is $70,000 per month, and we've been working with Over The Top SEO for almost a year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Over The Top SEO almost one year ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We have been featured in The New York Times, Miami Herald and Chicago Tribune as a five-star facility. Over The Top SEO got Google to come by our location and make a tour.

Our newsletter has reached almost 5,000 subscribers since it was started. It has resulted in some outreach to clients. Most importantly, our phone rings.

The overall experience has been enlightening. After reading about the subject online, I realized that there are many downsides, so I feel lucky. I don't have to worry about Over The Top SEO's work very much. Right from the gate, they told us that their team would be in charge, so we could let go.

How did Over The Top SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

We have a monthly phone call with one of our account managers. We also have live access to the project tracker. Over The Top SEO has done an overall splendid job.

What distinguishes Over The Top SEO from other providers?

Over The Top SEO may not be the least expensive company in the world, but they're fair. The work has definitely been worth it. We could always complain about paying too much, but I really do enjoy their services.

Is there anything Over The Top SEO could have improved or done differently?

Over The Top SEO is the first agency I've used, but, in my opinion, there isn't anything to improve.

Do you have any recommendations for others considering working with Over The Top SEO?

I advise clients not to listen to all the stories out there, and let Over The Top SEO show proof of their capabilities. This way, you can be more comfortable in letting go, and giving Over The Top SEO the ability to do the work.
