I believe our new inbound plan is going to be a game changer for us. In our industry, which is dominated by SMB's and a small group of large companies, this program is putting our marketing efforts at the level of the biggest players.

The folks at Search Engine People have quickly become an essential part of our team at Roadtrips. We really appreciate their enthusiasm for what we do. Plus, they've given us some huge SEO and PPC wins that have resulted in noticeable revenue gains.

By J. Wills of Roadtrips

During our expansion into the Canadian market we needed a digital partner to help us establish an online presence quickly. We engaged Search Engine People for their reputation, growing leadership and expertise in Pay-Per-Click services. The team at SEP took a strategic approach, aligning with our business goals to help us successfully enter the Canadian market achieving over 20% YoY growth. The PPC campaigns attracted qualified traffic that converted into sales, contributing as much as 50% of total revenue generated. SEP provided the professionalism and attention that we needed to hit our online marketing goals as a growing business.

With respect to PPC initiatives they (SEP) have been equally successful in optimizing our budget and maintaining a 4.52% conversion rate. They helped identify the best performing landing pages, identified top converting and least converting pages and changed low performing URLs to relevant highly performing URLs to increase our conversion rate by 157% and decrease cost per acquisition by 68%.

Search Engine People are true experts in their field. They hit the ground running, onboarding during an extremely busy time for the Foundation. They completed a full overhaul of our AdWords account and implemented new tracking all within a two-month period. On a weekly and monthly basis, we receive accurate, timely results alongside suggestions on how to continuously improve our activities. The SEP team tackles each new challenge with innovative thinking and results-driven strategy. They work side-by-side with members of our team in partnership. They care and it's evident from the great work they do.

Since we have engaged Search Engine People to run our search and social advertising campaigns, we've seen nothing but strong results. Our conversion rates increased by 30% and CPAs have dropped a whopping 66%. With amazing results like these we count on SEP's expertise and advice to keep moving our business forward.

Alex and the team always make sure to answer any and every question I have regarding search engines and how advertising works within the search engine sphere. They're always so friendly and personable and never make me feel like I've asked a stupid question.

Cracking the secrets to a successful Search Engine Marketing campaign is challenging enough on its own, but as a managed hosting provider with a relatively high price point, low volume and long sales cycle it was doubly challenging to attract the right type of lead and avoid creating a lot of requests that simply were not the right fit for us. Search Engine People rose to that challenge in helping Fusepoint create effective Paid and Organic SEM campaigns that have led to game changing results in our ability to attract a very specific target audience in a niche market.

Your Smile Dental Care chose to work with Search Engine People because of their great reputation and commitment to getting results. The SEP team really took the time to consult with us and understand our challenges and goals before developing the right strategy for us. Today, we have a great looking website, we're ranking for our top keywords on page 1, and our traffic is up 56% from last year! We look forward to continuing to get excellent results with SEP!

Thank you Search Engine People for your persistence in striving to improve our rankings and your recent success in getting us to the number one spot for our top keywords! There were times we were admittedly not sure if we would ever get there, but SEP continued to stay the course and after over a year of hard work and patience we have finally achieved our primary SEO goals together!

I just wanted to write a note of thanks to express how grateful we are to you and your SEO team! We so appreciate your experience and feel confident that we are going to benefit from your expertise!! During our discussion about our monthly report this morning with you and Rob we felt that all our questions were answered and that we continue to learn more! It's just so fabulous FINALLY having someone take over this part of our business and to actually explain how we are progressing with our SEO management. Thank you in addition, for undertaking the changes necessary to make our website more productive.

Selecting Search Engine People to manage our online search marketing efforts is one of the best marketing decisions CIBO Clinic has made. SEPs knowledge about the LAP-BAND and weight loss marketplace was exceptional. From an organic standpoint they've succeeded in nine short months to increase our organic traffic to 44% of overall site visits and develop a conversion rate of an astounding 4.04%. They also established over 1,900 links to our website and a Google page rank 3. We now rank organically on page 1 across Canada in our marketplace for our industry's most relevant keyword terms in the top page positions.

Weve had an amazing journey with Search Engine People. To compare where we began to where we are now is sensational, and truthfully, we couldnt have done it without the help and guidance from our team at SEP. Were a smaller business with a smaller budget, but the attention and time given to us is unparalleled. When we signed on with SEP in 2012, we had no idea of the strategic partnership our team would bring to the table in helping us thrive.

Our account manager Kristen is unbelievably knowledgeable, and she willingly shares that knowledge with us. We learned over time that our teammates at SEP want us to succeed as badly as we want to succeed, and as business owners, there is no better partnership to have.

Thank you for everything

I've been working with Kareem and Patrick for the last 6 months and cannot express how pleased I am with the progress we’ve made thus far. Not only are they awesome guys, they are super helpful and extremely knowledgeable in SEO. They implemented goals to help my business grow and in a short amount of time I've seen a number of positive changes take effect on my website and blog. As a photographer, keyword activity and traffic flow are integral to being acknowledged by Google. From day one they offered sound advice to help turn the traffic I was receiving into tangible business by increasing my rankings on Google. They also went above and beyond for me whenever I had a technical issue with either of my websites. Kareem and Patrick are trustworthy. They understood my needs as a small business owner and worked with my needs and my budget. I couldn't have asked for a better company to help my business grow! Using Search Engine People was one of the best business decisions I've made yet and I'm not looking back! I would highly recommend their services to anyone who wants to increase their online presence and marketability.

Great work, my phone has been ringing off the hook all of December. I haven't seen business like this for 3 years!

Graham Smith

Our ranking for all the major search engines has gone up within the first month of signing up with SEP. This has saved us money allowing us to focus on other marketing aspects other than always being the "Sponsored" listing. The support from the SEP staff has been unbelievable. I called my SEP Sales Rep with an idea and within hours they implemented and executed a strategy that delivered immediate results through Google.

T. Lovallo

I have dealt with Search Engine People through their rep Craig Ellis for approximately 5 months now. The results are way beyond my expectations. Since the beginning of last April the leads from my website come on a daily basis (something I expected to take at least one year to bear fruit). I cannot say enough about their service, interest and results. It's the best money I've ever spent.

Robert T Design

The service with Search Engine People has exceeded my expectations as far as getting placed in my key areas for Google searches. Thanks and looking forward to a long relationship with Search Engine People.

Thanks Bunmi for your recommendations and taking time out of your busy day to review the proposed changes and next steps. You and Jackie have been a pillar of support through this transition for Cote Law. Given that we are a small account relative to some of your clients, you always make us feel like we are a priority. The SEO team exudes an excellent customer service acumen and is certainly something that Patrice and I value.

These guys (SEP) impress me not only with their results but also with their enthusiasm. It really feels like they are part of our team. I want to keep talking about how we can achieve more with them.

Our team decided to use Search Engine People to help us with our SEO efforts. Their search engine marketing strategy has significantly boosted our traffic from organic search with more keywords appearing in the search results and more clicks. Since we were pleased with the SEO services, we also decided to move our pay-per-click campaigns to SEP from our previous agency. We're excited to have Search Engine People work on our paid search with the same hands-on approach, expertise and vision as they have on our SEO campaigns.

When our website traffic dropped significantly, we enlisted the help of Search Engine People to correct the issue. They were able to identify that we had been hit by a Google Penalty, and devise a clear, actionable strategy to help us recover our lost traffic. Since working with SEP, not only has the Penalty been lifted, but we're also seeing an increase in traffic to our website.

Prior to working with SEP, we did not have an effective strategy to drive customers to our website. After an extensive search of potential partners to help us, we chose SEP. After conducting an analysis of our website, and those of our competitors, SEP built us a plan to affordably drive significant new and “quality" customers to our website. Very shortly after we gave the go-ahead to implement the plan, we saw strong, consistent increases in customers coming through our virtual doors; after only 6 months, we now generate approximately 17% of all new customers, to our bricks and mortar operations, from the web - up from just 6%!

We look forward to continuing the great relationship we have built with Search Engine People, and anticipate continued success working with them.

For me, what set SEP apart was the fact that they listened. A simple concept, I know, but more and more I am receiving pitches from companies telling me what I need with little or no knowledge of what it is our company actually does. SEP's approach was refreshing. They eagerly gathered as much information from me as possible and asked intelligent, thought provoking questions. I received a prompt, professional and on the mark proposal which clearly illustrated they were the right company for the job. The results speak for themselves, we far exceeded our target. If you are looking for a comprehensive and effective way to grow your social media presence, hiring SEP is the answer.
