StudioPFG Tour

Tru-Rez by Vangura

When an existing client (Vangura) came to us and said they had existing designs for an entirely separate and new web presence in hand, with an incredibly tight timeline for web programming/development only - we knew the Studio PFG website platform was the answer.

Utilizing the Studio PFG platform, we were able to take their provided design files and make them into a fully functional website in a matter of days. This allowed an impending offline advertising campaign (television/radio) to run as scheduled.

Heavy Iron Oilfield Services

After originally providing web design and development services to Heavy Iron Oilfield Services a need to re-platform the website with an urgent one week deadline emerged. At this point, the design, copy, and everything else about the site was exactly what the client wanted.

A few days later, ProFromGo was able to re-platform and launch the site on time and on budget thanks to the Studio PFG platform.

Twelve Whiskey BBQ

Twelve Whiskey BBQ is a happening place on Pittsburgh's South Side. The company was relying on social media pages to tell their story online. Thanks to some beautiful photography already available on their Instagram account, ProFromGo was able to put together a beautiful website showcasing the food and the menu in world record time.

Paxton Bookkeeping

Paxton Bookkeeping requested help moving their site off of WordPress and onto a platform that would be more user-friendly for Paxton employees to control and manage the site without agency assistance.

ProFromGo provided minor design enhancements and re-platformed the website quickly and efficiently thanks to the Studio PFG small business website platform. All clients receive a one-hour platform training session at the conclusion of the project enabling them to confidently take over day to day content updates without the need for agency assistance.

HIP at the Flashlight Factory

When a few lifelong Pittsburgher's turned a historic flaslight factory building into a trendy new event venue, they needed some help quickly and cost-effectively telling that story online.

ProFromGo provided HIP at the Flashlight Factory a Google Street View virtual tour, captured numerous hi-resolution still photographs, and quickly created a simple brochure style website featuring those rich images. All delivered on-time and on-budget thanks to the Studio PFG website platform.

Pizza Fiesta

Pizza Fiesta sought out ProFromGo for assistance with a web presence overhaul.

ProFromGo provided business photography and Google Street View virtual tour production services for the downtown and Bloomfield/Garfield locations to optimize the business for local-intent Google searches and enhance each of the company's Google Maps business listings. 

A local SEO directory citation building campaign was also completed for both of the business locations to further increase the company's online visibility.

Additionally, we completed a simple website redesign via our Studio PFG website management platform.

Within 45 days of launching the new website and completing the mentioned local SEO activities, Pizza Fiesta began to consistently appear in the top 3 search engine results positions for numerous search queries related to "pizza delivery" in the areas they...

All About Pets

All About Pets is a boutique retail shop providing pet care products, boarding, grooming, and more. The company store is located on Hilton Head Island, SC.

The new marketing manager of All About Pets approached ProFromGo as a repeat customer of our agency, who had recently begun a new position. We were able to leverage the Studio PFG website platform to provide the foundation-level assistance the store's new marketing manager needed to get control of a website she wanted to completely revamp.

ProFromGo utilized the Studio PFG platform to take initial customer inputs and setup a basic framework for her to work within. Then we provided hands-on training so that she could source high-quality photography and tell the company's story efficiently and on her own using the Studio PFG tools, to add a personal charm you couldn't get any other way.

Bella Sera

Bella Sera came to ProFromGo seeking assistance with online visibility. ProFromGo recommended content marketing (blogging) and social media activities to help bolster website traffic. We quickly identified potential shortcomings and limitations with their ability to manage and update the website despite unanimous agreement that the "look and feel" was flawless.

ProFromGo kept all of their copy and design perfectly intact and re-platformed the website onto our easier-to-use Studio PFG website management system. A hands-on Studio PFG training session was also provided to ensure key Bella Sera employees would be able to confidently manage the day to day content updates related to showcasing their business events and activities online.

Feedback summary: 

The improved site has seen a significant increase in the number of visitors and the amount of visibility since ProFromGo was first engaged. They accept constructive input, and also bring creative ideas of their own to the table. The team’s quality deliverables set them up for continued engagement.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of a chiropractic practice that recently converted into a medically-integrated practice. We combine traditional medical services with alternative medical treatments.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ProFromGo Internet Marketing?

While we’re one of the largest practices in our area, we weren't getting any referrals from the Internet. A website analysis done by a local university flagged a lot of weaknesses. We needed help to make our site more relevant, show up in organic searches, and begin generating referrals.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They started by creating content for our site and social media channels (Facebook and Twitter). They create and post the majority of content for us. We’d create internal posts from the office, such as a photo of a client getting adjusted. ProFromGo produced research-driven articles related to our industry and world events. They also did a research analysis of the most popular search terms to inform the SEO strategy. Once we decided to move forward with the medical integration of the practice, we asked them to help us with a rebranding project. We're actually in the process of finishing that now. They’re working on everything from a logo concept, to a new website, and working on a new SEO strategy. They also added an auto-scheduler and a pop-up box on the homepage to help visitors make an appointment.

What is the team composition?

Chris (founder, ProFromGo) was my initial point of contact. I work regularly with an account manager. My marketing manager works directly with their person who does the social media and website posts every week. We’ve also worked with a designer.

How did you come to work with ProFromGo Internet Marketing?

I was referred to ProFromGo from a CEO organization that I belong to. Chris is a member as well, and I liked his focus on business development. He’s committed to the health of his business the same way I am to mine.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $45,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in August 2015 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’re seeing an increase of 900% of people visiting our site and clicking on links. In the past, we rarely had anyone cite the website as to how they learned about us. We get a lot of word of mouth referrals. We know that people often go online and research the company once they learn about us, and use the website to get our phone number or make an appointment.

How did ProFromGo Internet Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re super responsive. We’re the ones that hold decisions up and slows things down. For example, I have in my inbox the last version of our site. They got it to me on time, and are waiting for me to do a final proofread and give the okay to go live. Whenever we made modifications or wanted to try new things, they're always willing and ready. They bring us ideas that we wouldn't have thought of on our own. They evolve with us as our business has evolved.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I really appreciate the accessibility of the leadership team. If I need them for anything, they respond really fast. They're honest, and willing to let us know if something we tried isn’t working. I really like that they're transparent and accountable.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s been a learning curve about the content they post. One of the articles they proposed at the beginning was about massage therapy, for example, which we don’t offer. Or the content generated ads for other similar medical practices. So there was some work necessary on our end to help them target the right content, but they learn very quickly. After a few weeks of reviewing their proposed posts, they got to a place where they know what’s okay and what isn’t.

Feedback summary: 

The improved sites and system received positive feedback internally and externally for its strategic design and user-friendly functionalities. They facilitated content editing and reduced upload times by half. ProFromGo communicated clearly, met deadlines, and finished the project as specified.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a senior compliance and executive officer for the National Animal Supplement Council (NASC). We’re a nonprofit organization that advocates for animal supplement regulations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ProFromGo Internet Marketing?

We had a bad experience with previous web developers who were supposed to complete our sites within three months. However, the process extended to six months, and they didn’t build the sites according to our agreed objectives. We needed resources to revamp two WordPress sites and refine our product tracking system to include our desired functionalities.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, we conducted weekly conversations to assess our sites and identify potential pain points, including SEO compliance, graphics updates, and areas where we could improve efficiency. At this stage, they established the timeline estimates and gave an overview of the feasible functions they could add.

They completed and published two WordPress sites: renovating our main NASC site and its members-only section as well as our annual conference site. They also worked on our adverse event reporting system (NAERS), which allows suppliers to track products and keep updated any product issues. Finally, they introduced us to HubSpot to manage our membership base.

What is the team composition?

The main three-person team included designers and developers. Their co-founder served as our main point of contact, maintaining constant communication to ensure project completion.

How did you come to work with ProFromGo Internet Marketing?

One of our employees referred us to them. After researching their company, we conducted a conference call to meet their team. Unlike other companies that outsource to international developers, we appreciated that we could meet their entire staff because an in-house team would encourage responsiveness and mitigate miscommunication. 

What distinguished ProFromGo Internet Marketing was their willingness to speak frankly. We’ve gone through at least five different web development agencies where the biggest challenge was over promising and under delivering. They told us what we wanted to hear rather than what we needed to hear. Unlike their competitors, ProFromGo Internet Marketing openly told us what we could achieve with our technology and what couldn’t be done.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $80,000–$100,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work began in 2016 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their modifications and recommendations substantially improved efficiencies within our organization, reducing our content upload and revision times by 50%. We also streamlined our marketing workflow with HubSpot, which automated portions of our prospective outreach efforts.

Externally, we received a lot of positive feedback from our 250 members about the new site. They praise the site’s user-friendly functions and overall design.

How did ProFromGo Internet Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

I wasn’t involved with the software as much as one of our other employees, but I know that they used a project management platform to track task status and timelines. In terms of communication, their co-founder communicated consistently to ensure that they completed the project to our satisfaction—it was a much-appreciated personal touch.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In addition to their straightforwardness, they articulated the terms of the project in a comprehensive way: the current progress, what needed to happen, and what they would do to meet the deadline. Their transparency, personal touch, and frank communication contributed to one of the best experiences I’ve ever had with any company.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind. I've been extremely happy with them in all aspects.

Feedback summary: 

The sales are on the rise and successful HubSpot integration set the project up for success. Creative and experienced, they tailored their solutions to the unique needs of the business, while their affordable rates and professionalism contributed to the ongoing relationship.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the VP of Global Marketing at Apex International.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with ProFromGo Internet Marketing?

We moved into marketing automation about two years ago and we didn't have any experience with HubSpot. We wanted to get as much out of the system as possible, so we were looking for a company to help us optimize our use of that system, introduce us to best practices, and assist with lead generation.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They introduced us to the best tools of the marketing automation system and helped us integrate our website with HubSpot. They handled the multilingual component of the project, so we now have a multilingual website within HubSpot. In addition, they found a way for us to transition between HubSpot to WordPress, which is the platform our website is based on.

What is the team composition?

We primarily work with the owner of the company.

How did you come to work with them?

We found them through an online search.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent roughly $40,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in April 2017 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They're a small company and can easily adapt to our needs despite the fact that we have a lot of competing initiatives and projects. They've been great at helping us see the technical side of marketing and handle the multilingual components of our website, finding some out-of-the-box solutions. We're a manufacturing company and can't spend a lot on marketing, but they have very affordable rates.

Last year, we had a business project that emerged out of the blue. We needed help with our website and ProFromGo came up with the right solutions that were based on the size of our business and helped us improve sales within our market.

How did they perform from a project management standpoint?

They update us monthly on the status of the project and created Google solutions that work great for project management. Besides, they're patient and flexible. I'm very pleased with them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I enjoy working with them. They're a small agency and give us custom solutions. As a manufacturer, we have a lot of unique business needs in terms of how we reach out to our customers and connect with them. Our customers are not always tech savvy, so we need to both leverage the new technology and understand how our customers can adopt that technology. ProFromGo helped us leverage social media in a way that is totally different from the practices a large B2C company would implement, but it’s still impactful and allows us to connect with our customers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be clear about your expectations. One of our challenges is that we don't always know what we want to get out of our marketing spend. We're trying to be as clear as possible with ProFromGo so that they know what direction they need to go.

What is the team composition?

No, everything went very smoothly. There’s nothing I would have changed.

They also experimented with Google AdWords and created a weekly social media schedule to organize various publications, research on sources, and write Facebook and LinkedIn posts.
