What were the results of the project?
With the landing pages, I wanted to know if we were going to get in trouble with Google. Bobby showed me examples of some of our competitors. He would show me what they were doing wrong, and explain why we were doing it differently. I know Visionfriendly knows what they're doing, which is nice.
I also want to tell you, I would get so many compliments from customers on our actual website – how it looks, the colors, how easy it is to navigate, and everything like that. People would say, "You've got one of the best looking websites out there."
Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?
When we first did the landing pages, they always say it can take up to eight months to a year for it to work, but literally within six weeks we were already on page one with our organic landing pages, and we remained there, which is great.
Is there anything unique or special about Visionfriendly.com that really makes them stand out?
I feel like Visionfriendly.com does their research with what is allowable content and what is going to send up red flags. They never try to get ahead of the game by doing something halfway. They would rather do things the right way, and have it take a little bit for us to come up on page one or two versus doing things the wrong way to get us on page one immediately, but then it would send up a red flag to the search engines and we could be blacklisted. They do things like that.
Bobby always says to me, "We've got this new thing we're doing, and I want to try it out with you. Let me tell you all about it. This is what the cost is, this is what we're going to be doing, and this is what our goal is." Whenever there was something new, he would call me and we could discuss it and decide if it was something we wanted to do. I've always gone with what he said. Like I said, he knows what he's doing, he does a great job at it, and he does everything honestly.
Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?
It's so funny because I only contact Bobby because he gets back to me quickly, even if it's not anything that has to do with what he does there. Years ago, I don't remember who I had to email, but he didn't get back to me right away, so I emailed Bobby, and then he took care of it. He's on his email all the time. If somebody sends him an email, he wants to get back to them as quickly as possible so they're not waiting around. That's what my experience is mostly with him, quick with things. I appreciate that.
