We're an Extension of Your Team
One valuable piece missing from most packaged marketing services at larger agencies is genuine one-on-one support and consultation.
Remember that Projects Plus is a small business like yours. We don't have a staff of salespeople, customer service personnel, or account managers. You'll be speaking with the owner of Projects Plus or one of our pros who is actually in the trenches working on your marketing and knows your business.
If you want feedback on something, have questions, want to discuss strategy, or need some guidance, we're here. Just call, text, or email and we'll schedule a time to talk.
In fact, if we're providing you with full-service local online marketing (a combination of several or all of our services), we expect you to schedule phone consultations with us every 4 to 6 weeks. Because we're partnering with you in your business and we need your participation to succeed.
Consultation is a necessary ingredient in our local marketing offering.
It gives us a chance to:
- Get to know you and your business. Seasonality, ideal customers, your challenges and goals, previous marketing tactics you've deemed successful or not - this kind of knowledge about you allows us to sharpen our customization and performance efforts on your behalf.
- Continue your momentum. Sometimes, we'll need your help. Perhaps you have inside information on a competitor we're battling for positioning with on the internet; you can fill us in on some of the frequently asked questions your customers ask; we may ask you to proof new content, troubleshoot account logins, or help us verify local directory listings.
- Add DIY marketing to your mix. There are certain things we simply cannot do for you - such as asking your past customers for online reviews or referrals, tracking lead sources, or building a project photo gallery. But we can help you or your team develop and execute DIY marketing so it becomes a regular part of doing business for you. These types of activities are very inexpensive ways to bring in new leads and repeat business.
How Does Local Marketing Consultation Benefit You?
Projects Plus Consultation Protects You
You are probably solicited frequently for various paid advertising and marketing opportunities. Let us know about it and we'll provide feedback.
For example, should you sign up with Houzz, Angie's List, Porch, or Yelp?
We'll definitely share our expertise and research the opportunity further in your local market. What works for some industries and geographical locations doesn't necessarily work for others.
In addition, if you choose to join a paid advertising or lead generation program, we'll have input on setting up your profile and maximizing the benefit you receive.
Our goal is to protect your online presence so it's as consistent and credible as possible while gaining the best results.
Projects Plus Consultation Empowers You
You can save a lot of money learning to perform certain marketing activities on your own or with the help of a spouse, administrative assistant, office manager, or another person on your team.
We will teach you and your team what to do upon request.
We don't believe it's good for a local business owner to be completely dependent upon outside marketing vendors or services. After all, who cares about your business more than you do?
Vendors and services will come and go - you are a permanent and vested fixture in your business. You should know enough to make good marketing decisions and ensure the basics are getting done right.
Having a Trusted Go-To Resource is Awesome
Just about everything you do online, and sometimes offline, affects the strength and performance of your overall online presence.
We do not provide all internet marketing services, but we want to know about the other marketing tactics you are pursuing to ensure it helps you rather than hurts you. Surely, we'll have comments, suggestions, or recommendations.
This is one way we partner with you as an advocate and ally.
For example, we aren't interested in handling your PPC, but we want to be involved enough to protect your internet presence and make sure it's working as it should.
Loyalty is extremely important to us. We've got your back.
