Barry Best Seamless Gutters needed an online marketing strategy that made it easier to increase visibility, attract new prospective customers within their local market, and improve marketing ROI.
Highly Engaged & Active Online Presence
Local SEO & Website Optimizations
Digital Marketing Strategist
Barry Best Seamless Gutters wanted more visibility online across all the channels used in today’s customer journey as well as to attract more prospective customers through local activities.
Prior to partnering with Surefire Local, their team had a difficult time keeping up with maintaining an active online presence. Their website was designed by someone who created websites as a side job, not a professional by any means which meant they quickly outgrew it. It was time for a change in strategy.
Wanting to optimize their digital footprint and maximize their budget, they began their search to find a professional. What ultimately led them and attracted them the most to Surefire Local was the chance to work with a Digital Marketing Strategist who could help them create and launch a strategy that touched on all aspects of their online presence.
Working with their Digital Marketing Strategist, Barry Best Seamless Gutters established the following goals:
- Build a new website and increase overall search visibility within their local market
- Generate more leads at a lower cost
- Grow revenue
Barry Best Seamless Gutters teamed up with Surefire Local to tackle their digital footprint challenge. Their team knew from the start that they provided exceptional customer service, it was just a matter of becoming more visible online so that more prospective customers could find them. They also understood that building a strong digital footprint wasn’t a set-it-and-forget-it type of strategy, and that a multifaceted approach would be required.
Together, with guidance from their Digital Marketing Strategist, they focused their efforts on three core areas to improve the business’s digital footprint: Relevant Content, Online Reviews, and Lead Management. Their blog now attracts national attention, which in turn has improved their credibility with Google and has become one of the most-read blogs for their industry.
"I love the platform, that’s the starting thing. Going on there to see the leads and see the data myself instead of having someone call us once a year saying ‘Here’s what we brought in for you.’ That’s the honest part because I know it’s true. I can go right in there and verify it."
