The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner and principal attorney of a boutique law firm located in San Diego, CA. We assist individuals and businesses with all sorts of business law and tax law related issues.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire SunCity Advising?

We have had bad experiences with previous SEO/marketing providers. We were not ranking that well and our website had many errors. This was reflecting on our lead generation. We hired SunCity Advising to perform SEO services that include on-page, off-page, and local aspects.

Additionally, they assist with managing lead generation and conversions through the marketing funnel. Social media posting and content creation services are also included.

What were your goals for this project?

The overall goals was to rank better on google and to get more leads from our blogs, social media and website.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We performed extensive research before hiring SunCity as our vendor. As we have had bad experiences in the past, we knew we could not rush in our decision. We considered several companies, talked to at least 5 other vendors and end up partnering with SunCy for a couple reasons:

  1. they are local - it was important to us to work with a company in our time zone and that we could meet regularly, if needed;
  2. they ranked well on google;
  3. there services and approach lined up with our goals and what we were looking for in a vendor;
  4. their price was fair;
  5. they were very communicative and showed that they cared about us and would do their best to help us achieve our goals.

Describe the project in detail.

We started off with an in person meeting with the CEO and the account manager that would be taking care of our firm directly. They understood our goals and explained the process and what would take to get where we wanted to be. They helped us identify issues with the website and how to fix them.

They also helped us determine the best keywords for us to target to assist with our ranking. They outlined topics and how we should structure our blog posts to reach maximum reach. They provide content for some blog posts and assist with social media posting as well with other marketing material that we need. For example, they help us with our monthly newsletter, they designed the proposal we send to Clients, etc.

What was the team composition?

I have an assigned "account manager" who I talk to in a regular basis. We have bi-weekly phone calls to discuss our progress. He's there for me for whatever I need and to answer any questions I have. He assists not only with the SEO (on-page, off-page, local...) but with any other marketing needs I have, including social media, blog posting, content creation, PR release, etc. I am also in constant communication with the CEO, who helps identify SEO and marketing strategies for us to achieve our goals.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I receive monthly reports and can see the improvement on our ranking, lead generation and website health. We rank in the top 10 for google for a couple keywords and are working to rank higher in all of our targeted words.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I have nothing but great things to talk about Dan and Ivan and all the members of SunCity Advising. They are very accessible and communicative. They respond promptly to any requests/questions we have. Dan and I have bi-weekly phone calls and I know I am always welcome in their office, if an in-person meeting is needed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Besides all the hard work they put in every month, I can see how dedicated they are and that they truly care about us. They don't just want our money, but want to help us grow and succeed. Other vendors we worked with were not as dedicated and didn't seem to really care about our company and our growth. I feel like they have truly become part of our team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, I have no complaints.

They’ve been more available than I would expect. I have a weekly meeting with Ivan which helps me prioritize and focus.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Ivan has been very professional and timely with things. We decided to go with them for another year because we’ve been happy with the results so far.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. Ivan has taken the time to find out exactly what to do or how to improve the things that he wasn’t up to speed on.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?
