What was the scope of their involvement?
TC Interactive Group started building our website from scratch in WordPress. They educated me about the need for a website as well as making the website more appealing to search engines, integrating social media, and using meta tags. While we were making the site, Google changed their algorithm pretty significantly, and TC Interactive Group made changes during the implementation almost overnight to adapt to that.
They started by talking to me and getting an understanding of what I wanted to accomplish. They put things into perspective for me, including the best way to put my company out there and separate myself from the competition. It was really enlightening. I thought I knew a lot about the business, but they opened the doors to other possibilities. They pointed out what my competition was and wasn’t doing and positioned me to take advantage of those deficiencies within the market.
TC handles all of my social media marketing. From a budgeting standpoint, that’s made a lot of sense for me. I like PPC marketing and jump in from time to time. It’s expensive because it’s so competitive. TC helps me time the spending well so that I get the best ROI and don’t waste money. They put together a comprehensive package that’s diversified and allows me to continue to generate leads. My business is weather-driven, so we do PPC during summer as well as a social media campaign utilizing Yelp, Facebook, and Instagram, which gives me a steady stream of potential leads. TC also provides video production. Since YouTube and Google are video-oriented, we’ve focused on engaging that area. We invest a lot in training at our company, and they blasted the web with that info.
What are the features of your site?
Online booking is really important. We’re in the process of creating a chat function to increase my response time and accuracy. I have a preferred partnership with a distributor and a manufacturer, and TC is working with them to tie our marketing into theirs under their co-op program. I will be able to piggyback on all of their efforts and benefit from their national marketing. TC has thought of everything in establishing that for me.
How many resources have been assigned to your project?
I was in contact with 5 resources. From what I understand, other people worked on the project as well.
How did you come to work with TC Interactive Group?
I don’t know much about this industry and was calling different firms for suggestions, some of which conflicted. That left me with more questions than answers. I reached out to a colleague who had great success with TC. They came in and made sense of everything I was hearing. Sometimes, companies want to drive business towards a certain feature for their own reasons. TC assured me that was not their objective. They wanted to help my business first and foremost.
How much have you invested with TC Interactive Group?
They are very reasonably priced.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with TC in January of 2017, and the work is ongoing.
