Feedback summary: 

Red Cow’s efforts resulted in improved Google rankings and a significant increase in website traffic and incoming inquiries. The team was very attentive and communicative in their approach to the project. The positive experience laid the foundation for a lasting partnership.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the director and owner of Wish Upon A Sparkle Ltd. We are a face and body art company specializing in glitter, face painting, and hair. We work at corporate events and festivals.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Red Cow Media Ltd.?

We needed help with SEO and media strategy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Red Cow made some backend adjustments to our website and linked it to Google Analytics to help improve our search rankings. Their team has access to all of our information and accounts, but they always check with us before making any changes.

Additionally, they help with our social media outreach efforts. Each month they run sponsored Facebook ads that target one of our many objectives. Their campaign’s strategy focuses on gaining followers, and we can further tailor it to boost online sales or to bring awareness to our services by adjusting the demographics.

What is the team composition?

We work with a team leader.

How did you come to work with Red Cow Media Ltd.?

Previously, we tried to improve our social media with a PR company, but weren’t satisfied. We had a different company work on SEO, but we didn’t find them professional. We were searching for a partner to fulfill both these needs.

Our old PR company recommended Red Cow. We were located in the same area, which we found convenient. In our additional meeting, their team was welcoming and approachable. They promised high-quality results, and they delivered.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend £1,800 pounds per month ($2,369 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in December 2016, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Red Cow sends a monthly report detailing our Google search rankings and we are happy with the progress. We are now ranking above some of our competitors. We have also experienced notable increases in website traffic since the start of our engagement.

How did Red Cow Media Ltd. perform from a project management standpoint?

Our team leader is very attentive. If there are any delays, it is usually due to a busy schedule on my end. On their side, all of their services have been great and they always deliver on time.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We really appreciate their loyalty. A competitor tried to hire them, but they decided to continue their relationship with us. We are very grateful because their efforts continue to drive incoming inquiries.

Feedback summary: 

The wildly successful campaign improved the site’s SEO rankings, yielding a 200% increase in site traffic and greater sales conversions. Red Cow Media’s result-driven approach has led to a strong and lasting partnership. 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of a consultancy business. We provide e-commerce and digital marketing services to clients nationally and internationally, ranging from small startups to established companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Red Cow Media?

Our main project involved an Amazon-focused client who wanted to drive sales traffic to their site. We needed resources to augment our team and implement a full SEO strategy. In particular, we sought people to advise our developers and ensure the site was SEO compliant.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They supported our contracted developers to build the site and ensure that all data transfer was SEO compliant. They also provided an overarching SEO compliancy document and strategy for the digital marketing team. Once we approved a budget, they implemented a full SEO and AdWords campaign over a six-month period to ensure that we ranked against top keywords. They targeted 80 keywords in total.

Beyond the scope of the project, Red Cow Media also leveraged their SEO knowledge and experience to advise us. They understood the most efficient way to build sites that appealed to an international audience. They provided an overall infrastructure review detailing how to effectively host sites on CDN in six geolocations.

What is the team composition?

Our main point of contact was their owner and technical lead.

How did you come to work with Red Cow Media?

In the past, we’ve had poor experiences with SEO agencies because they didn’t deliver the expected results. We had heard of Red Cow Media from their stellar reputation in both America and the U.K. Their portfolio and references, as well as the breadth of their knowledge, impressed us. We then decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

For this project, we’ve spent about $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work for this project lasted from March 2014–March 2015. However, we’ve actually worked with them since 2013 and have contacted them for multiple projects. If we have clients in need of SEO work, we consult Red Cow Media.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The campaign was overwhelmingly effective. After a six-month period, we saw an 85% delivery where we appeared on the first Google search page. Of our top 10 keywords, we ranked within the top four positions on Google in both the U.S. and the U.K. We also saw a 200% increase in site traffic, yielding higher sales conversions. In terms of the AdWords campaign, the ROI was about six pounds for every pound spent.

How did Red Cow Media perform from a project management standpoint?

They produced monthly status reports to show how we compared to the previous month. This allowed us to see the cumulative impact of their work. They also conducted bimonthly meetings, either on the phone or in person. In terms of communication, they were available night and day.

What did you find most impressive about them?

In the e-commerce world, the most important factor is delivery. We appreciated Red Cow Media’s commitment to producing strong deliverables and meeting expectations. They do just as they said they would do.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Like all growing agencies, it’s difficult to hire talent to keep up with the workload. Our only criticism is that they could have benefited from a larger team.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Customers should maintain as detailed a brief as possible. They should clearly understand their project scope and expectations. This allows both the customer and Red Cow Media to be much more focused on achieving specific outcomes.

Feedback summary: 

Since launching the campaign, traffic has increased every month and conversions have almost tripled. Red Cow Media's collaborative attitude and attention to detail are impressive. Their assistance has been crucial to every stage of the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the head of marketing for Gorvins Solicitors, a full-service law firm in the northwest region of England. We have more than 130 employees.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Red Cow Media?

Our goals were to improve our online profile across several departments and to gain more website visitors and conversions. Our previous agency was too large. It didn’t give us the time and dedication we needed.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Red Cow Media manages the SEO for our conveyancing, dispute resolution, wills, trusts and probates, and employment law pages.

We specify the keyword areas for each department that we want to push and their team conducts the necessary research. They edit the website as necessary and perform quite a lot of outreach. Our internal effort is on the periphery, making sure that the work done by Red Cow is helping our sections.

What is the team composition?

Their owner was my main contact. I currently work with one of their SEO managers.

How did you come to work with Red Cow Media?

We searched for Manchester SEO providers, and Red Cow Media was the first result. We deduced that any SEO agency that turned up as the first result must be good. We approached them when the company was just starting out, and they took the time to understand our business.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Red Cow Media in November 2014.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We started with the conveyancing page, then expanded to the dispute resolution page after noticing an increase in traffic. The page also began to show some good returns, so we assigned the final two sections to Red Cow Media. Since then, they have also started to show returns.

Our number of visitors has increased every month that they’ve worked on our account. Conversions have nearly tripled.

How did Red Cow Media perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve gone above and beyond our needs. The team became involved with every aspect of the website, including its relaunch. They provided regular updates, training, and industry insights. We’ve never had an issue with Red Cow Media.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They take the time to fully understand our business, treating us as a client rather than a number. We see it as more of a friendship than a working relationship.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their communication could have been better at times, and they could provide more insight into how many people are searching for specific keywords.
