After just a couple short hours of in-depth business conversation, the two realized the potential there was to be had as business partners. Thus, the idea of SEO Locale, LLC was built.

SEO Locale's work produced a boost in sales for several of the products. Communication and project management were seamless, but what stands out the most about them is their attention to detail and understanding of project needs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the owner and manager of an e-commerce apparel company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SEO Locale, LLC?

We needed SEO, SEM, digital display, and geofencing.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a positive ROI for all our marketing strategies.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

SEO Locale was recommended to me, so there was a trust factor established. They were mindful of my goals and seemed to understand what strategies would align with them, which helped me decide on hiring their services.

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

They were responsible for creating and implementing multiple digital marketing strategies which would help grow the several different product lines we wished to push.

What was the team composition?

We worked directly with Marc (CEO, SEO Locale, LLC). His communication and service were excellent.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

We implemented the strategies and monitored the progress of about a dozen different product lines. We had good results for the majority of SKU's; a couple of them did extremely well.

I’m very happy with their results, so I don't feel like nitpicking on any particular issue. Perhaps they could improve on brainstorming and documenting their progress, but overall, there’s nothing to complain about.

Feedback summary: 

The site looks professional, and traffic and sales have increased. In addition to being cost-effective and delivering strong results, SEO Locale continues to be accessible and highly responsive. 

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I am the Owner of Parkwood Street Road Pharmacy in Salem, Pennsylvania. We’re a full-service retail pharmacy and we deliver durable medical equipment and pretty much anything a full-service pharmacy is going to have. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with SEO Locale?

Because you can’t make any money selling drugs any longer, the only way you can do that is through nonprescription products and your best bet is higher priced items like wheelchairs and medical equipment and things like that. Our goal is to try to get more delivery and people coming in for medical equipment. People aren’t going to come 10 miles to go to a pharmacy for their prescriptions, but they will for a wheelchair.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

I was told that we’re basically starting from scratch. They were able to get my website up and running in a week. They had nothing to work on because they couldn't see my old website. They sat down and talked about all the important things, and what I wanted to say. They helped me with the wording and the site itself. I needed to give them a number of different keywords, and then rank the importance of one over the other. I don’t know exactly how they do what they do. I’m old and don’t go on the internet very often myself. If I bring up my website, it looks really good and professional looking. In general, it looks much better. I was with a big company before and was not getting anything for it. It wasn’t even as good as what I get now for the cost. The site has everything I need and SEO Locale is just easy to work with.

How did you come to work with SEO Locale?

I started out by having our website made by a company maybe five years ago. After a couple of years, we switched over to another company, which after a year or so, took over the website content and did SEO work. We did that at least a year longer than I should have. I was spending over $1,000 a month. It would vary all the time. I’d never know how much was being charged to me. Everything took time and it was very hard to get a hold of somebody and I didn’t know what was considered normal or not. The one thing I do know is the prices went up a little bit each year and I finally realized that my sales on these types of things are basically steady, but not increasing. I realized I wasn’t getting my money’s worth. I also didn’t know that my website would go completely dark when I said I wanted to stop their SEO work, so at the end of that engagement, I had no website.

I met SEO Locale at a Muhlenberg alumni meeting. Their price was very attractive, especially since I was used to paying twice as much or more. I was told my website would be up as quickly as humanly possible, which was really the most important thing to me. Not only was I able to get that site up quick, but I was saving money.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them April 2016 and have been working together since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

My sales are up by 20%, maybe a little more, which is really important in my business. I get more calls from people on the phone, people who are coming in from Philadelphia. I get more traffic to my site.

How did SEO Locale perform from a project management standpoint?

If there was a scale of 1 to 10, I’d give them a 10. I’ll reiterate that I know nothing about the business or the industry, but what I have judged them on their responsiveness and results. I don’t have complaints about either of them. I call and any change I need is done that day or the next. It has saved me money and made me money. I speak to them from time to time anytime I want to do add something to the site or make any change. It’s very easy. They answer the phone and then they do it.

What distinguishes SEO Locale from other providers?

Accessibility and responsiveness.

Is there anything SEO Locale could have improved or done differently?

They could give me a discount and charge me 11 months for the price of 12. Outside of that, I’m not going to complain about the pricing. I did call a few places and the prices, they all seem to be higher. No, I don’t think there’s anything that’s lacking. If you’re comparing several places that do this work, I don’t know that anybody is doing it for less money than this and I can’t imagine that they’re exceeding the results I’m getting. If I go on the internet and type in a wheelchair or a walker, our pharmacy ranks really high. I think CVS owns the market, but I’m above people who are even specializing in durable medical equipment. They're doing a good job and know what they’re doing.

    I’ve already done that. I go to pharmacy meetings and I say, “If anybody is interested in increasing your sales, this place that I’m using is doing a great job.”

Feedback summary: 

What sets SEO Locale apart is the attentive way the team listens to concerns and feedback, which influenced the new website. Thanks to SEO Locale’s output, the store is now easier to find online.

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 am the owner of Modern Age Furniture. It’s a family-owned store in Philadelphia that carries all types of furniture and home accessories. We’ve been in business for 50 years — same location, same store name. Our target market is primarily local.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with SEO Locale?

I needed advertising and a web presence so people could find my store. I see other furniture stores advertising on the Internet and getting responses. I wanted to see if that was possible for a business like mine, so I wanted to try it with a smaller company that’s very accessible. However, I was cynical about websites and advertising on the web. Previously, I tried a generic company that charged ala carte for everything, and it was a complete waste.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, I described our business and what I wanted to accomplish. SEO Locale seemed to understand when I shared my hesitations and asked them what I would be getting. They built a website from scratch that doesn’t look the same as websites I see all over the place. I believe the website was built using WordPress. I would send pictures and promotions that they used to customize the site. They did detailing of the services we do and what we carry. For example, they added pictures of what we have at the store for living rooms and dining rooms. They even helped with search engine optimization and picking out the appropriate keywords. Basically, they manage and update the website for me. I feel like I have my own digital marketing manager.

How did you come to work with SEO Locale?

I heard about SEO Locale through word of mouth. I was hesitant because I was already working with another company. I didn’t know how to end the engagement, but I wanted to keep my domain. Since I wasn’t getting anywhere with the current company, I decided to call SEO Locale and give them a try. I wanted to have the advantages of having a website that works.

How much have you invested with SEO Locale?

I pay around $500 a month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them July 2016 and have been working together since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They created a more interactive website that gives you a good sense of who we are when you look at it. SEO Locale also looks at the analytics and makes suggestions for me. For the first time ever, people came into my store and said they had found it on the Internet. It’s incredible. If I put “furniture store in Philadelphia” on Google search, our store comes up right away. I now get phone calls and emails because I have a “Contact me” page on the website. I had one even this morning. I love it.

How did SEO Locale perform from a project management standpoint?

SEO Locale has always answered my questions. They are always available to me. We communicate over email and phone as needed.

What did you find most impressive about SEO Locale?

I am impressed by the personal attention they give us. They actually take the time to listen about my store, which really makes all the difference.

Are there any areas SEO Locale could improve?

No.
