Testimonials From Our Valued Customers
Supportive, Loyal and Trustworthy!“I was introduced to Michelle Darling of Projects Plus Marketing by another ProTect Painters franchisee while inquiring how to generate additional leads through SEO. I hired Michelle after our very first phone conversation and she has been a pleasure to work with ever since. Michelle is the proverbial consummate professional – hard working, diligent, extremely responsive to phone calls and emails, supportive, loyal and trustworthy. I know the word trustworthy gets thrown around a lot, but I mention it because in the internet business it’s hard to know if you’re getting what you pay for. However, with Michelle, you’ll get everything she promises and a whole lot more and at a reasonable cost. If you need some hand-holding through the whole process of SEO as I did and want your organic listings ranking at or near the top of the first page in internet searches, look no further than Michelle and her company.”
Dedicated, Hard-working, Honest, and Caring"Michelle and her company Projects Plus were recommended to me by an industry consultant. And after working with Michelle for two years I can tell you that was a very good recommendation. Any business would be fortunate to have Michelle and her team on their side. I have found Michelle to be consistently dedicated, hard-working, honest, and caring. In addition, she clearly has the skills and knowledge to help any business reach its marketing goals."
Immediately She Got My Listings Fixed!
“Michelle Darling has been doing my SEO for years now.
Prior to her coming on board my local listings (Google, Yahoo, Yelp, Bing etc.) was a mess.
I wasn’t coming up on searches for painters in Minneapolis and overall was a little discouraged about Internet Marketing.
I met Michelle through a friend who has a business in Minneapolis and he spoke highly of her skill. I can only report now how right he was! Immediately she got my listings fixed and maximized.
She was able to make some tweaks for my home page and within a few months, the phone started ringing with “organic” internet leads.
It takes a while for all the changes to have a positive effect, but it has only gotten busier. It also requires constant attention because the internet landscape changes constantly.
I would highly recommend Michelle and her team to take this project off your plate. None of us have enough time or expertise to get this right!”
A Trusted Advisor!“I have worked with Michelle for the past several months on a variety of projects and highly recommend her services. As a small business owner, Michelle has become an extension of my team – a trusted advisor to me and strong advocate for my marketing goals. Michelle offers a broad range of services and her customized approach is thoughtful, detailed, and relevant. Unlike a big “plug and play” approach she can customize a plan that fits your needs and budget. If you’re considering any of the services that they offer I unequivocally recommend Michelle and Projects Plus.”

I Do Have One Regret - Not Finding Her SOONER!
“My name is Jamie Cox with Protect Painters. I have been in the painting industry for 20 + years.In this time, I have worked with numerous advertising/marketing companies attempting to put my company in front of potential customers. Early on my marketing strategy was very simple - send direct mail, knock on doors, or put up lawn signs - and the leads were there. These days the customer base is much more complex.
This is where Michelle Darling of Projects Plus comes in. I was introduced to Michelle a year or so ago as a potential accent to my Reach Local online marketing campaign.I was never fully satisfied with Reach Local. It was a necessary approach initially getting me a degree of immediate internet exposure, but at a considerable cost per lead.
Projects Plus has since replaced my need for Reach Local's services.I was very direct with Michelle in our early conversations stating that I am NOT tech savvy nor do I desire to be so! I have a very busy schedule, and I needed someone that I trusted and felt comfortable with to handle my online presence without breaking the bank.
Michelle filled the order! Her low key friendly approach saddled with her mind-bending knowledge of how things work online has kept my company at the top of internet search results in my production areas.I could not be more content with my decision to work with Projects Plus. However, I do have one regret.........not finding her sooner!!”
Rock Solid Internet Presence"I'm often contacted by prospective owners for 'validation' calls about being a business owner. They have a range of questions most often centered on two topics: crews and marketing. Well, Michelle can’t help with crews (I wish she could) but what she can help with is marketing. She was my first source for all things internet when I opened my franchise. She was so very patient and offered extensive explanations of what she was doing for me.
Being a consumer on one side of Google is totally different than being a business owner on the other side of it.She helped me understand PPC, SEO, local listings and organic searches. I didn’t necessarily want to know this much about the internet but it’s such an important part of my business and my yearly marketing spend that it was essential that I get a handle on it.
Michelle is very thorough, knowledgeable, up on the latest Google updates and invested in all of her clients’ success.I cannot recommend her enough if you want to start out of the gate with a rock solid internet presence.”
Most Positive Marketing Tool I Have Used!"Michelle and Projects Plus has been the most positive marketing tool I have used in my business by far. She has enhanced my business immensely with her SEO and local listing to give me higher rankings and many more leads.
Her attention to detail and customized service has been a tremendous advantage and I really enjoy the personalized service.She is a great asset to my business.”
Very Personalized Approach!"I switched to her from another company and the service she provides far exceeds what I was getting from the previous company. She takes the time to really understand your needs and works diligently to get everything set up correctly. I highly recommend Projects Plus Marketing to anyone considering this service.”
She Doesn't Stop with Just 'Good Enough'"I would highly recommend Michelle of Projects Plus. After working with another company to set up local listings and SEO, we were referred to Michelle. The difference was night and day. Michelle has the personal touch I appreciate. She took time to meet with me personally on the phone and clarify all of our company information. I could see the results of her work right away.
Previously, the company we used communicated with billing on time, but I did not see the changes/updates we needed for months.Michelle works hard for me. I see the changes/results. I also see she is going the extra mile–she doesn’t stop with just ‘good enough’. She goes deeper and works on all the aspects of the listings. Thanks, Michelle!”
An Important Part of My Strong Revenue Growth!“I strongly encourage franchisees, seasoned veterans and new ones alike, to avail themselves of the services offered by Michelle Darling of Projects Plus. Unlike most vendors who are quick to fade into the background after the deal, Michelle plays a role more like a partner who assists you in setting up a strong internet presence, a foundation for rankings and visibility for organic leads. I believe that her efforts have played an important part in my strong revenue growth in 2014.”
I Have Seen VERY Noticeable Improvement in Leads!
“Hi, Michelle.I just wanted to let you know that since you have started managing my Internet presence and SEO, I have seen a VERY noticeable improvement in leads through our website and through searches on Google, Yelp, and several others that I didn’t even know about! It is remarkable how effective your work has been when I was paying the same thing to another service and getting nothing – for nearly a year with them! Thanks for your efforts Michelle. It is paying off for me!”
I Can Confidently Focus My Attention on Other Areas of the Business.“It’s important to get off to a quick start as you open any new business. In the painting business, one of your least expensive source of leads is going to be internet listings. Michelle and Projects Plus becomes a key partner, not just a vendor, in getting all my listings up, complete, and accurate. She took time to understand my business and made sure we were presenting ourselves in the best light. She keeps her finger on the pulse of the ever-changing search/listing/reviews world and makes sure that we are adjusting to those changes on the fly. With Michelle on my team, I can confidently focus my attention on other areas of the business.”
Customer Service at it's Best!“Full support any day, any time always with professionalism, friendship and of ‘course customer service at its best. Their services produce results! As a new owner, Michelle took care of me launching my business and set up all my marketing logistics/strategies fast and effective, and as a new business this a must to boost a new business right from the beginning. Thank you very much, Michelle and Amy!!!”
I Was Able to Double My Business This Year!"Michelle and her staff at Projects Plus are outstanding. They really know how to get you the best exposure and results on the internet. I get the majority of my business from the internet and Michelle and her staff makes sure my page is always up to date and current with minimal work on my part. I have been using Projects Plus for over 2 years now and I know they are a big part of how I was able to double my business this year. I recommend Michelle and the Projects Plus team highly!”
Close Co-operative Spirit ... Willingness to Listen
“Michelle Darling of Projects Plus Marketing has been known to me since 2012.
Our business relationship commenced as our company arranged its online presence and has succeeded since then.
As online marketing experts, that early contact with Projects Plus Marketing has grown into a close cooperative spirit with Michelle and her staff – providing a list of services and advice commensurate with my growing business.
I have come to admire in particular her willingness to listen, plan and tailor my online presence to suit my personal and business needs.
Projects Plus Marketing strengths are that they stay focused on the long-term sound “placements” rather than the short-term gain.
In the turbulent times of internet marketing, with rapid fluctuations, this has resulted in steady performance to keep us relevant – that has not been typical across the board in this category of internet placement.Their pricing structure and fees provide a strong springboard to constantly monitor and re-balance my account/listings. Their business presents itself as a close-knit family atmosphere, and they have always been pro-active in holding regular information briefing sessions with me in the rapidly changing search category. I trust that this collaboration will continue in the future, and would be pleased to recommend Michelle Darling (and staff) in the capacity in which they have served me.”
