Great quotes from clients…

This is a quote from a client… the message title was “YOUR EXTRA SPECIAL JOB”. I had previously contacted him and offered some more innovations to increase his visitors even more and he declined saying he had all the clients he could handle.

Hi Mark

I must say that I am thrilled with our web site. Thank you for all the time and expertise that you have put into it. I am sure that it will now work even better for us.

Best wishes,
Ron and Shirley
Orchard Corner B&B, Cape Town

Another of our clients is a butchery equipment client.

We built their site late last year and this year I’ve been emailing them to let them know about their visitor stats – see below – and I got no reply. Eventually I got this reply…

Good Morning Mark,

Not ignoring you intentionally, promise. Have been extremely busy. We have had up to yesterday lunch time 18 machines brought in for repairs and everyone is urgent.

Have plenty feedback from the website. Besides the calls in to the office for small spares/machines have had requests for quotes on machines from Ghana, Kenya and Malawi. Only problem is they want the quotes in Us $. Not easy to do with the exchange rate being what it is. Anyway we shall prevail.

Regards,
Sharon

Ha! They were so busy with orders that they could not reply. Bingo… job done!

Every website designer says they do a great job. Each and every one of them.

I go further and make the claim that my clients become busy after I build a website for them. I back up my claim by inviting potential new clients to contact my past clients.

Our SEO client is 2nd for their primary search phrase

I just notified our client whom we launched late last year… they are coming 2nd… what a great success story for our SEO!

Their primary search phrase is “vacuum pump“. That is what they sell… in all shapes and sizes. It was our goal to come on the front page of Google for that search engine term… and we have come second!

We also target about 50 product names for them, but this is the biggie “vacuum pumps” because that it primarily what they sell.

Enlarge your online business

Maybe you have a website already but you want more sales from it. This is what you need to know… this how you get more customers through your website.

If Google loves your website, then it proudly displays your website on it’s front page results. If Google doesn’t love you, no one will know you exist. I they can’t see you, then they can’t visit you and buy from you.

You need Google to love your website – and that’s what we do for you.

Orchard Corner Success Story

As before I explained to the client that his first customer is Google. If Google “buys” then the world will know he exists and they will get a chance to see his page and buy from him. If Google and other search engines don’t “buy” then he is lost on the second and third pages of the search engine results.

So we made a list of his products and figured out his target market. We create a page for each opportunity. You can see the list of links below…

So how did we do?

For the phrases that we targeted we are coming second (today: 27 October 2011), see the image below…

We rank 2nd on our keyword phrase that we targetted

They also have a very rich listing… take note that we have registered in Google Maps, made a Facebook page, a YouTube video, submitted that video to Facebook… all of this results in a rich listing. The result is that the listing takes up the whole visible area of the page, visibly removing the distraction of other competing websites.

Orchard Corner rich listing takes up the whole page!

Pinelands Accommodation success story

Here is an example of a rich listing for a client of ours: Pinelands Accommodation.

In the image below take note of the following… if someone searches for “pinelands tourism” this is what they would have seen on April 2011. The 1st result is our client and their listing is so “rich” that it takes up the whole first page.  This is useful because searches almost never view below the page fold… or to put it another way, they don’t scroll down if they don’t have to.

Cape Town Cleaning success story

Here is another search engine result success story. This client (Cape Town Cleaning Services) did not have a website before we started. Their new website would be completing against many many mature websites in the same field.

In our site design we made a page for each of the main products that they sell.

How did we do? See below…

Vacuum Pumps success story

For any small business to grow you need to come top or near the top of the Google rankings. I explain it to clients this way… Google is your first client, if they don’t buy from you then no one else will even know you exist.

Here is a client: Vacuum Pumps which we launched last week.

We built one page per product… I have highlighted the links to the pages in the image below…

If you aren’t on the front page, you won’t get the business – it’s that simple.

How did we do? Do his products rank well in search engine results for Google, Microsoft Bing and Yahoo?

Summary of the report

Out of 81 product pages in the 3 major search engines

  • 50 product pages are on the front page of the engine – 61% success
  • 10 are 1st in the results for their keyword – 12% success
  • 27 are in the top 3 results for their keyword – 33% success

PLEASE NOTE:  Any keyword which is highlighted in red is ranking 1st, 2nd or 3rd. In green is 10 or under… which is still on the front page.

Right away, just one week later, we are ranking 1st on all the keywords that we have targeted… and what is amazing is that our pages rank ABOVE the original manufacturers pages. That is probably because of localization. If the search was done in Germany the manufacturer’s site would come higher than ours.  (NOTE: Ignore the first three lines, they are Google Ads)

1st... even above the manufacturer!
