When ENAfocus came to us, they were interested in completely rebranding their company. With that said, this leading business in the IBM sector needed a new identity. Starting from scratch, we crafted a brand with cohesive elements that were carried throughout the typography, brand colors, logo, and tone. A new design direction sparked a streamlined user flow that simply directs users to exactly what they are looking for.

When Custom Video Production came to us, they were looking to enhance their digital presence and accurately target their customer base. Our team was able to increase all rankings through our SEO strategies.

They led me through the whole process. I’m not technology savvy, so they advised me on what would be best for the website.

I actually won a contest to receive web support from them. 

How much have you invested with them?

Their work was done at no cost to me as part of the contest I won.

We started working together in December 2018 and wrapped up mid-2019.

I get a lot of positive comments when people go to my website. That's huge because you want to have a really nice website, especially in the service industry. They did a great job of presenting us as a professional organization. I’m grateful for that. 

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was great. Sometimes we had creative differences, but they were able to articulate their process and integrate my ideas with what makes sense from a development perspective. They explained things in a way that made me feel comfortable and confident in their expertise.

Overall, their communication was the most impressive. I was able to voice my opinion, feel heard, and have my concerns resolved.

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 marketing director of Woodhaven Lumber & Millwork. We’re a building material supply company encompassing a wide range of products from lumber, millwork, sheetrock, windows and doors, decking, stairs, cabinetry, closets, flooring, roof and floor trusses, wall panels,  hardware, tools, and more.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

When I started my position, the state of the company’s marketing was all over the place. The previous digital marketing company wasn’t bringing value and or a meaningful ROI. We needed to find a new partner.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Semgeeks manages our digital marketing and advertising efforts. This includes PPC, social media marketing, and SEO services. They manage both organic and paid content as far as boosting and campaign development go; this includes our video-display ads across the Google network.

What is the team composition?

I have one main point of contact. However, there are about 4–5 others on the team. Also, I’m sure there are individuals working behind the scenes.

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

I worked with them in my prior role at an agency so I was already familiar with their work and the results they could generate. They did a mini-pitch of our business because my previous client was in a different sector.

In the end, I liked how they expressed they’d approach the engagement. It was clear that their focus and strategic KPIs were going to be effective for our business. They needed to be able to move our paid search efforts in the right direction. I knew from prior experience that they’d get me the results I needed.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $50,000–$200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our ongoing partnership began in May 2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We saw a huge jump in the quality of our leads when we shifted from a traffic strategy to a conversion strategy as well as an increase in phone calls and online form conversion.

With our site redesign in 2017, the combination of the new site and quality of the traffic increased our leads even more. The number of repeat and new visitors went up and our site’s bounce-back rate decreased. We collaborate constantly to optimize our campaigns. 

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

We collaborate through email, Google Drive, and weekly/monthly calls or in-person meetings. The Semgeeks team is very responsive. As our business has grown, they’ve provided an account manager that I maintain daily contact with. She and I have established a very good working communication over email with how we work together.

When I’m working with the SEO or blog team, I’ve found that there’s a really nice rhythm, and the same is coming to be with the social media group which is a newer engagement. 

Sometimes, things take a little longer than I’d like but that’s not to speak to their dedicated efforts. I often want things done a little bit faster, but that’s because I can be a little intense on expectations. Overall, I have no complaints.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re really smart and understand what they’re doing with all things digital. I feel very comfortable and confident that they’re leading me in the right direction. I really do trust them. The Semgeeks team is full of nice people who are level-headed and don’t try to do the dog and pony show with me. They’re sincere, authentic, and transparent.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There are only a few things here and there but nothing is glaring or consistently an issue. Some things could have been completed more cohesively or strategically across the board of campaign strategy. We’re still finding our rhythm on a couple of matters like that. I’m sure it’s going to come together. They’re very responsive when I express that I want to fix something.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You must have open communication lines. Make sure to lay out what you’re looking for and play your role in reaching those objectives. Work with them as a partnership and understand your role in that. If you do, I know you’ll get the results you’re looking for.

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 founder of Custom Video Production. I produce corporate videos. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

We partnered with them to exchange services: I provide Semgeeks with video production while they manage our SEO. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Semgeeks manages our SEO. They keep us on the first page of Google and relevant on social media. They run ad campaigns for Google, LinkedIn, YouTube, and Facebook. We give them a budget, and they manage the campaigns and adjust things as they go. 

They also research and write impactful blogs for my demographic. They figured out my business and my audience before writing their pieces. 

What is the team composition?

I interface with about 30 people. They’re a pretty big company.

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

I came across them through word-of-mouth. Semgeeks has such a high impact in the community. They’re a professional company with employees, a brick and mortar facility, and a solid foundation in social media. I started pursuing them for a partnership rather than a one-off project.

How much have you invested with them?

The value of their work for us is about $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The partnership started in January 2016 and is ongoing. In fact, we’re shooting a video for Semgeeks today!

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They keep us on the first page of Google. Their writers are really good as well. 

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

Nobody’s 100% perfect, but Semgeeks is pretty close. They’re very on point in what they say they’ll do and how they’ll do it. They run their company professionally and are accountable for the actions. They absolutely provide value for what they do. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their accountability and measurable results stand the most to me.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’d love a better definition or more precise explanation of the impact and ROI of advertising on social media. Semgeeks doesn’t answer phone calls to bring you business; instead, they’ll make sure the phone is ringing and get people to your door. 

Any advice for potential customers?

Have a plan and a budget. You can’t hire them and set and forget. You need to work with them. It’s an engagement that requires time to see results.

Feedback summary: 

The team’s services proved to be helpful to sales after one of their campaigns led to a 16% increase in revenue over the previous year. Experienced and empathetic, they learned about the company and suggested areas for improvement in campaign efforts. Their audience segmentation skills added value.

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 marketing director of a restaurant group that operates 12 properties. We run 11 restaurants and one event venue.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

We didn’t have much of a digital presence: our websites were outdated, and we lacked digital strategy. I started working with their company on website work and PPC strategy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started with Facebook advertising. There’s something for everyone with our restaurants, so it was challenging designating an audience to target. They worked with us on crafting messaging for our several different target audiences, providing us with direction on how to find them and how to use our budget to engage them with our content. In that effort, we tested content with different audiences to get our name in front of as many people as possible in the most effective way. We’ve recently started with PPC efforts through Google.  

What is the team composition?

There were likely about eight people working on our projects, between our website work and PPC.

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

When I first started at the company, they were the existing vendor. I know they received good referrals locally to organically catch our attention.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $30,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

 The project started in November 2017, and our work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Audience segmentation was a real benefit to working with them. They were good at keeping an eye on campaign performance and making recommendations along the way, so we could maximize our dollars. In terms of metrics, our sales come in waves in this industry, so it can be difficult to pinpoint one thing that demonstrates their impact. 

However, we do a March Madness campaign to encourage people to come to our establishments to watch games. We noticed a 16% increase over last year when there had been little to no advertising. So, they were able to identify and build an audience of people who enjoy college basketball that helped us draw customers in.  

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

They are clear with communicating expectations and accurate with their timelines. Their team is particularly knowledgeable in their field, so they’re always providing us with best practices or a solid strain of logic to inform what we’re doing. If there was anything I was unfamiliar with, they explained why we needed to take action to ensure everyone was on the same page.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re always learning and growing. If they have new knowledge to share, they’re willing to jump in and try something new. They’re evolving with the products, trends, and algorithms that are constantly changing in their industry. It’s been great to rely on them for that inside information on Google and the digital market. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything at this time. We’ve only scratched the surface in terms of their capabilities based on our needs. I know that they’re capable of much more. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

They laid the foundation of our project plan, and there were no surprises. Their team can handle it.

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 principal and owner of Assured Health & Safety Solutions. We’re a health and safety consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

We’re a new business, so I needed a logo and a website. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I first showed Semgeeks some websites of similar businesses in my industry and at the same size. That way, they had an idea of what safety consultants do, including the type of work and specialties within the industry, and could organize my website appropriately. Semgeeks took the project from there.

The website—built in Wix—is more informational than transactional. People can learn more about my services, read my blog, and contact me through the site.

What is the team composition?

Pete (Marketing Director, Semgeeks) is my main contact to get information about what I was looking for and to exchange edits back and forth. There’s a person who put the website together, a graphic designer who worked on the logo, and the accounts payable person for billing. 

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

Being a brand-new business, I didn’t know what was needed and what to look for. I knew I wanted a third-party provider to make my logo and website in order to make my company look professional and larger than a one-person operation. 

My daughter knew the team at Semgeeks and recommended them to me. I considered a few other companies based on who other people in the safety consulting business had used. However, Semgeeks stood out to me because they were positioned to work with my needs as a small business owner and not lose me in the shuffle.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $4,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from February until May 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I started with no business, facing the costs that every startup has to pay to get started. Now, we’ve been in business for over a year with a positive cash flow, and I’m earning a decent enough salary to continue doing it. That’s a testament to Semgeeks’ work in getting me visibility. I’ve gotten lots of compliments from people praising my website and given lots of referrals to industry peers asking who did it.

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

Semgeeks was really easy to work with. They were laid-back but also serious about getting things done and looking professional. We communicated via email. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

The ease of working with Semgeeks impressed me the most. They’re extremely responsive and quick to understand our requests. As someone who never started a business before, it was very helpful to have a patient, understanding partner to figure out what I needed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not that I can think of.

Any advice for potential customers?

In general, when working with any outside partner, be specific about your needs. However, Semgeeks was able to understand my business and what I needed even when I couldn’t put it into words. Still, providing details is helpful for any relationship with a contractor.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

At our sandwich shop, we offer a sub above – one that’s measured in more than inches or seconds ‘til served. We carefully consider every aspect of what we do – every slice, every sandwich, every store. We provide our customers with sustenance and substance too. I'm a Multi-franchise Owner

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire this vendor?

Digital marketing, PPC, and social, web design, and web development

What were your goals for this project?

We approached Semgeeks seeking a comprehensive digital marketing and branding strategy for individual franchises. the partnership was twofold: 

  1. promote new franchises and increase in-store traffic
  2. develop a portal for potential and current employees to log into for application, scheduling, and other company services
SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

through due diligence

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

Web development: It began with the website. Franchisees needed an area to keep Human Resources affairs in order, so we developed a website that also served as a login portal for potential and current employees. This login portal allows us to keep track of new hire applications and manage employee schedules, the policy guide, and more.

Social: We created a social marketing promotion plan to build individual franchises’ following on Facebook and increase in-store traffic. The campaign encouraged users to share exclusive offers with their social media followers. Each franchise that ran the promo saw anywhere from 750–1,500 in-store transactions from the social marketing campaign. These hyper-targeted campaigns around individual franchise locations allowed marketing dollars to be tracked in the most effective way.

Creative: To complete our full digital approach, we utilized PPC marketing campaigns to increase in-store traffic, and ultimately, our bottom line. Working on Google’s Display Network, we showed visually engaging banner ads to a targeted demographic, enticing them with coupons and offers to get them into the store. For those who didn’t convert at first, they continued to see our brand message in front of them on a multitude of other websites through the power of remarketing. Staying top of mind to customers helped our franchises increase brand awareness and boost ROI.

What was the team composition?

The team is their greatest strength and they continue to answer every challenge with innovation.  it is impressive to watch them work the problem.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

With our updates to the website, we have a more effective and user-friendly system to approach onboarding and business management. Our social media campaigns not only expanded our online presence, but it also brought new customers to our franchises and inspired them to return. Semgeeks’ integrated approach helped a multitude of our franchises become one of the most recognized brands in the U.S.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it? Did you use any specific project management tools?

Project management is one of their core principles of success and is well balanced throughout each client engagement

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They take the time to understand the unique buyer personas per location and operational profit center to layout a strategy of solutions for the long and short term.

Are there any areas where they could improve?

No

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 vice president of marketing and product management for a global software company. We develop products to help manage data center infrastructure, power, and cooling.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

We were a new company, and we needed to gain brand recognition. We wanted to build out a new self-service website that would attract traffic and convert that traffic into leads.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We used them to create, maintain, and enhance our website. They also work on SEO and our ad management. I think the site is built in Drupal. It's designed to accommodate customer learning and buying processes. It has information about our services, and we have videos and other useful content on the site. Semgeeks did a tremendous amount of keyword research, and they scrub all our content to make it easy to read and optimized for web searches. They also manage our ad copy and landing pages.

What is the team composition?

We have a primary account contact for all our work, and we work with subject matter experts in SEM, SEO, and web development.

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

They responded to an RFP. We compared three companies, and Semgeeks scored the highest among them.

How much have you invested with them?

I would guess we spend about $10,000 a year on their services. In total, we've probably spent around $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The collaboration started when we were still a part of our parent company. We began the partnership around February 2012, and we've worked with them independently since 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They helped us establish a leading brand name in our industry. Within four years, we went from almost no name recognition to a highly visible brand with a lot of site traffic.

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

They are very good project managers. They lay out all the objectives, give us their project plan, and meet all their requirements. I receive a file of all their outputs.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their design expertise, their ability to meet deadlines, and their flexibility all stand out. They're also reasonably priced.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can't think of anything they should do differently.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Establish clear, measurable objectives to achieve your goals. Once they understand those objectives, they will propose a strategy to meet your needs.

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 chief communications and corporate development officer for a helicopter provider based in NYC. We do sightseeing tours and have a 300-mile-radius charter service.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Semgeeks?

We hired Semgeeks to manage our digital and social media marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Semgeeks developed our WordPress site and integrated Checkfront. They also implemented a chatbot service. The team now maintains the site, which is our e-commerce platform as well as marketing hub and landing page for most of our clients.

Semgeeks develops ads and runs our PPC campaigns. They oversee our social media outpouring on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook. They provide SEO, ensuring that we appear in Google searches and manage our rankings on sites like TripAdvisor and Expedia. The team tracks our marketing results and makes changes as needed. They also create all of our content.

What is the team composition?

Olivia (Account Strategist, Semgeeks) is our main point of contact. We work with 6–7 other team members.

How did you come to work with Semgeeks?

When I joined my company, they had already signed Semgeeks onto a year-long contract.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $70,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

My company began working with Semgeeks in November 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website is very good. They completed it in a reasonable timeframe, and the design was very well orchestrated. The chatbot ensures that our bounce rate is low. Also, by tailoring social media posts, they target influencers and groups, and we’ve seen a lot of positive results from that.

Users often comment on how easy the website is to use. They appreciate the customer service. A lot of backend issues arise with Checkfront, but Semgeeks does a great job of getting around those; their webmaster comes up with creative solutions.

How did Semgeeks perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve worked with several other marketing and PR teams, and I’ve never had a liaison as intuitive, knowledgeable, and organized as Olivia. She oversees initiatives from creation to implementation to tracking the results. She’s one of the best professionals I’ve had the pleasure of working with.

The team is readily available and accommodating of last-minute needs. They work with us to change initiatives or provide recommendations if certain plans aren’t going as intended. We communicate via email and weekly calls.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

They maintain a “the client is always right” mentality. They’ve never been combative; even when we express our opinions, they’re respectful and work with us to solve problems. When you give them a website initiative, they follow up and work with other parties to complete it.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they do a really good job with everything.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be ready for a partner that can take pretty much any marketing function and come up with a solution, while being attentive and organized along the way.
