RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

Sur-Ryl Marketing has saved us time and effort by letting us focus on the business rather than marketing. Additionally, their expertise in digital marketing have been invaluable.

How did Sur-Ryl Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Sur-Ryl Marketing, we believe, is the industry leader in providing innovation services. They give exemplary customer service, and their pricing is affordable. We're a small business, a federal contractor, and so their prices were very affordable. They demonstrated professionalism at all times. They were trustworthy and dependable. They paid attention to detail. They took initiative by advising us of the things that we needed to do.

One of the things that I loved about them the most is that I didn't have to manage the project or go behind them to check on their work. Every single thing that Sur-Ryl did exceeded our expectations. Every project exhibited extreme quality, and we received it before time or on time and definitely within budget. The other thing that stood out for me the most, the reason why Sur-Ryl is our preferred marketing firm, is because although they have many other clients, the professional service that they provided us made us feel that we were their only client. They always anticipated our needs. It seemed that they knew what we needed before we knew we needed it, and I think that's what stood out the most for me.

What distinguishes Sur-Ryl Marketing from other providers?

Sur-Ryl Marketing advises us on the things that we need. They know what we need before we know we need it, and that has been a tremendous benefit for us. It allows us to stay ahead in our field. They take the initiative in every aspect of our project.

While they were updating our website, we hadn't even talked about the social media portion yet, and they took the initiative to update our social media when they did our website, which was incredible for me. I'm sure you can imagine that with doing a company name change, there's so much involved – the legal aspect of it and everything – the social media was the last thing that was on my mind. By the time I thought of it and went to Sur-Ryl group to talk to them about it, it was already done. That was just amazing that they took the initiative to do that. Like I said, they advise us on the things that we need, and they know what we need before we even need it. That allows me the opportunity to focus on my core business and not on my marketing needs. I think that is the true value that Sur-Ryl Marketing brings to my firm.

Is there anything Sur-Ryl Marketing could have improved or done differently?

No. Absolutely not.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Sur-Ryl Marketing created an effective website that received ample traffic and ranked will in terms of search engine optimization. The client praises the agency for their responsiveness. Sur-Ryl Marketing is highly recommended to others.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I am the sole proprietor of a company that markets certain specialized tax services for small businesses. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Sur-Ryl Marketing?

About a year ago I was just getting myself started, and I wanted to find a way through an attractive, well-organized website to present my business and opportunity to potential clients. The person I worked with at Sur-Ryl had a suite of services, and we talked about how those might fit with what my objectives were. Then, I selected from the suite and they performed those for me.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

First, Sur-Ryl was responsible for the design of the website. We worked together to determine what kinds of things should go in the website. I generated all of the content. They developed it and presented it in a way which would be visually appealing and well-organized. They also did some smaller things like making business cards and the development of my logo. 

How did you come to work with Sur-Ryl Marketing?

I don’t remember. I had an interview call with my rep. I was really impressed. I didn’t do any comparison shopping. 

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It all cost under $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It was completed more than a year ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I got very good traffic. What I was missing was a bit more lead generation. That wasn’t something Sur-Ryl could have provided. The website ranked well when I checked from a search engine optimization standpoint. I didn’t really have anything before that to compare it to. The website was the start of the business and I was pleased with the visibility that I got.

How did Sur-Ryl Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Sur-Ryl was great to work with. It was all very personal, having constant contact with my rep. I always knew what was happening and when. It took some time to do these things, but I didn’t have to call to find out what was happening. She would ask for follow-up input if she needed it.

What distinguishes Sur-Ryl Marketing from other providers?

What I typically find in other service providers is that you are the one that has to prompt them. They’re not typically sensitive to keeping the client updated appropriately. That’s been my experience. Other people do quality work as well for the services they provide but what made them stand out was their responsiveness. Sur-Ryl understood from the initial conversation how I like to be treated and that was important to me. They made sure that I was updated.

Is there anything Sur-Ryl Marketing could have improved or done differently?

No.

    I can’t say I have a basis of comparison. I was fine with the cost, but I wasn’t astonished at how low a cost it was.
