The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the owner of a real estate investment firm in the Midwest. We primarily buy houses to flip and grow our rental portfolio.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Paper Box SEO?

I hired Paper Box SEO in order to grow our online presence, specifically, our organic rankings.

What were your goals for this project?

We were looking to build our online credibility by obtaining more high authority links in hopes of increasing our organic rankings within the major search engines.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed approximately 5 SEO companies and asked them all the same questions related to how they work and how they measure results. Ultimately, I decided on Paper Box due to

Describe the project in detail.

I needed someone to build ethical links (both backlinks and citations), increase organic traffic thereby increasing warm leads.

What was the team composition?

I communicated entirely with Russell.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Received a noticeable increase in links, traffic and more importantly, leads. The only reason I stopped was for a huge internal budget issue (my issue, not with their cost) and I had to pause. I'll be starting up again as soon as it makes sense for me financially.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Super easy. I was hardly asked for anything in terms of support but when I did need to do something, the instructions were clear and I was able to knock out what they needed from me immediately.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

1. Responsiveness. They were always quick to respond. 2. Skill. It's not easy to build quality links and the team got some really good ones. We also noticed an increase in traffic and leads that can directly be attributed to their work.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I received a high-level report with the most important things that were done over the course of the month. It may have been nice to have a report of everything that was done but I'm not sure how realistic that is for them to create or for me to review.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Paper Box SEO’s work, the client has enjoyed a sizable upsurge in the number of business inquiries. They’re considering hiring another employee to better handle the increased call volume. On top of being responsive and friendly, the team lead has demonstrated his versatile skill set.

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 managing law partner of Smith & Eulo Law Firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Paper Box SEO?

Although our business was performing well, we wanted to achieve even higher levels of clients and inquiries through SEO services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Paper Box SEO delivered organic growth strategies like backlinking and finetuned our web content to be SEO-friendly. They launched a scholarship campaign for universities to endorse, which encouraged backlinking to our website.

The team lead also contacted our current vendors and assisted us in generating content for their websites, which linked back to our pages. They provided analytics for me every month.

What is the team composition?

My main point of contact was Russell (Founder, Paper Box SEO). I believe he utilized some other teammates behind the scenes.

How did you come to work with Paper Box SEO?

Our growth had stagnated with our previous SEO firm. We hired Paper Box SEO to do an SEO audit for us, with the expectation that we’d hire them instead if the audit yielded valuable insights. We ultimately felt comfortable moving forward with them.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend around $4,000 a month, so it’s been around $32,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in July of 2019, and the work is still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve experienced an upsurge in calls in the last two months—probably the best I’ve seen in my career here. Thanks to their work, our call volume has been off the charts. We’re currently thinking of hiring a new attorney next month, given the amount of business we’re seeing.

They consistently propose innovative solutions for us. He’s great at thinking ahead and has done an excellent job so far.

How did Paper Box SEO perform from a project management standpoint?

Russell has been on point with communication. Every message I send out, he responds back within a day. He’s on top of things and also very easy to talk to. We have conference calls, but for the most part, we communicate via email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I would highlight Russell’s availability and turnaround time in resolving a wide range of issues. If we have a problem with the website, Russell will jump in and make it look right. I appreciate the versatility of his skills.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t think so.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They’re a good company, so I’d definitely go with them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We are an e-signature and e-notary platform provider allowing users to get documents signed quickly, and for notaries to be able to e-notarize documents, and I am the CTO

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Paper Box?

We were looking for an SEO consultant well-versed in all types of SEO so we could stay competitive with some of our well-funded competitors. We needed someone to assess our current SEO situation and tell us what we need to do better, as well as create a long term strategy for consistent, reliable growth.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals for working with an SEO consultant were to start growing our presence on search engines more, especially for a few vital target keywords. Our biggest customer acquisition channel is through organic traffic so we were hoping to capitalize on the success we'd already had.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

SEO has always been a challenge with lots of different companies offering similar services, but the results were usually mediocre at best. With Paper Box we got the results we were told we would expect, and as a result the project has been an ongoing one.

Describe the project in detail.

We needed and wanted to have better results on the various search engines especially on google. There was a lot of collaboration and communication to achieve the goals we aimed for. They were able to improve all of the aspects of SEO including our on-page SEO and off page SEO.

What was the team composition?

We communicated with the founder Russell, but he has a team of remote employees who were equally knowledgeable.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Certain keywords on the various search engines our rankings greatly improved as well as getting more exposure on the social media sites.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Even though we're 3 timezones apart, they were always responsive to emails and calls. We're able to work together very smoothly, better than any other agency I can remember.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We found Paper Box to be a top-notch company because they communicated with us every step of the way. We found their knowledge in this space to be very impressive.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There are always areas for improvement, but nothing comes to mind for Paper Box as they really did go above and beyond to help us achieve our goals.
