My husband and I own a Contractor business and we are in a very competitive market. We realized a couple years ago that we needed to beef up our marketing, because business was more scarce. We beefed up the marketing we had been doing for years, that is direct marketing, news paper ads, magazine ads and some other stuff. After a year of doing this we had no return. No kidding, NO return! Needless to say, we wasted so much money. To make a long story short, we learned marketing had changed and people look online now for everything. We hired Local Marketing Suite to help us with this transition and they were extremely helpful. Not only did they explain in laymen terms how the internet now works concerning business, they walked us through a couple strategies to choose from. Local Marketing Suite built us a great website, plugged us in all the online directories, did graphic design for new business cards, and got us showing on Google & Yahoo on the first page. We have consistently been picking up business since four months after we hired Local Marketing Suite. Nearly all our business now comes from people finding us online. They truly are local marketing experts.
I am a skeptical person by nature and don't often write reviews but felt that in this case it was warranted. I own several commercial websites and my largest producing site was hit with a manual action penalty for unnatural links back in 2013 thanks to some black hat work an agency did at that time. We went through the disavow process and tried three different agencies to help us recover our lost traffic but nothing really worked even though they all promised they could fix it. I found one of Grow Team's blogs online and when I called I was transferred directly to their CEO. He listened to my lengthy story and then surprised me by giving me what I think was the most honest assessment of my options and likelihood of success that anyone had ever given me. After several more meetings we decided to do business with them and they did find us an agency that has finally fixed our issue and restored our traffic. The results have been great, but what I think is oustanding is their efficiency.
Great Work! We hired Local Marketing Suite to correct some bad reviews that had been written about our company by a disgruntled ex-employee. This same person had written a total of fifteen bad reviews in various directories. We noticed that many of them were the same exact wording. After hiring Local Marketing Suite for their Reputation Management and Review Repair service, those bad reviews are nowhere to be found. In two months Local Marketing Suite pushed the bad reviews so far back or down that you really have to did to find them. On top of that, they added all of our positive reviews to many directories. Now, when you research our company all you see are 5 star ratings and positive reviews and articles about us. We ended up hiring Local Marketing Suite for their monthly Reputation Management Maintenance service and also to do some Internet Marketing for us. Since then we have had a 400% increase in online sales. We give them 2 thumbs up and a 5 star rating.
