The Local Blitz Difference

 

“Digital Marketing Done Right”

In the ever-changing landscape known as digital marketing, we at Local Blitz pride ourselves on implementing campaigns that are always in line with our slogan “Digital Marketing Done Right”.  So what does that mean?  Well, it means that as an agency we are committed to taking a data-driven and scientific approach to our processes to ensure every possibility of getting results for our clients.  No matter what type of online marketing campaign we run for our clients, our approach as an agency is to let the data tell us what to do.  We do not offer pre-planned cookie cutter packages for our clients, but rather custom solutions that fill their exact need.  In this fast-moving industry of digital marketing in SEO this is what must be done as it becomes more complex by the day.

A Digital Marketing Agency committed to transparency.

In addition to our mantra of “Digital Marketing Done Right”, we focus on transparency for all of our loyal clients.  We have heard horror story after horror story from new clients about past experiences with SEO companies and digital marketing agencies. Stories were they, as the client, had no idea what was happening and even suffered from basic communication issues about whether or not they were getting results.  Our focus on reporting is to always report on key metrics for our clients, such as lead flow and lead sources, and other KPIs dictated at the project start.  A little-known fact is that the average client retention for an SEO company or digital marketing agency is less than six months.  We have clients that have been working with us for over five years and we attribute this to our dedication to communication and transparency from the start of our relationship with our clients.

What Our Clients Say About Us….

Digital Marketing FAQs

How do you track ROI?

This is the question we get the most.  Many people we speak with have run campaigns in the past with mixed results and had no idea whether or not the investment actually delivered a worthwhile ROI.  This is a major issue for many clients we work with, but the good news is that we have solved this problem!  At the start of the project we always identify KPIs with our clients and make sure those are being properly tracked and reported on often.  If lead genearion is why you are starting an SEO camapign or online advertising, you are in luck as we track every single lead from click to call so you know exactly what your marketing investment is doing for you!

What types of businesses do you work with?

As an SEO and digital marketing agency, we have worked with businesses of all shapes and sizes.  From startups to established businesses, we can work with almost any marketing budget.  We have worked with Ecom businesses, local service-based businesses and many other types of businesses.  As a rule, if we don't feel we can get you results we will never take you on as a client and point you towards someone who may better serve you.  That said, we have gotten results in countless niches and would love to speak with you about your need first!

Do you have a track record of results or case studies?

You bet we do!  We have been hustling for our clients since 2009 and have a long track record of results in SEO, online advertising, social media marketing and email marketing.  If you would like specific case studies or to speak with a client that we have worked with we are happy to comply.  Just ask and we will make sure you are 100% comfortable of our ability as an agency to get you results.  After all, that's what its all about, right?

How much does Digital Marketing or SEO cost?

This is a question we get often and the answer is it depends.  Depending on how much work will be involved to get you results, the costs vary from project to project.  Generally speaking, the more competitive the niche the more work it takes to get results and that is the biggest driver of costs associated with digital marketing and SEO.  That said, if we feel that your marketing budget and our ability to get you results are out of line, we are always upfront about that from the get-go.  Our continued growth since 2009 is a direct result of building relationships and getting clients results, not just gaining short-term business. 

How long does it take to get results?

This is a common question we get as an SEO company and digital marketing agency.  The reality is that every situation is different, but we always try and be as transparent with our clients from the start, so they know what to expect.  Especially with ongoing SEO work, the timeframe for starting to see results can vary widely from industry to industry and the same applies with well optimized online advertising campaigns.  The typical drivers are how competitive the industry is that we are working in and also whether or not there was anything in place before we started.  Generally the more competitive the business niche the longer it may take to get results.  Additionally, if there has never been any SEO work or digital marketing work done in the past, or if there has and it was done poorly, that can be another big factor in the timeline to gain rankings or get results for your specific campaign.  All this to say, we will always remain as transparent as possible, as we are here to forge long-term relationships with our clients and that transparency is exactly how we have built a business over the years.

The Local Blitz Process

The very first step in the process is to address what the client needs actually are.  Are you looking for leads? If so what kind of leads? Are you looking for rankings and traffic? If so what type of traffic?  Additionally, this is the phase where we will gain information on your competition so that we may have to opportunity to reverse engineer some of the things they are doing that are working so we can then launch you past them!

Once we fully understand the need, then it's time to use our industry experience and digital marketing and SEO knowledge to put together a working strategy for you as a client.  As Benjamin Franklin once famously said, “If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail”.  This is exactly what we keep in mind at this phase, we must put together an actionable strategy to get the client results, all the while remaining fluid as the digital marketing landscape changes from day to day and year to year. 

Now that we know what the client is trying to accomplish and we have a strategy in place, we are ready for project kick-off.  Generally, this involves a call with a Local Blitz team member and key people at the clients business to ensure that the client has all of their questions addressed and understands how reporting will work and who to reach out to for any questions that may arise from time to time.  Now we are ready to get to work on implementation!

This is the point where generally the client can sit back and our team gets to work on the ongoing strategy that we have put in place.  There are many moving pieces in a digital marketing and SEO strategy, which is why we have put in place great team members, all of which will have some touch points on your project.  This is where it gets fun!

Transparency is the key to a successful online marketing campaign and business relationship.  As the project progresses we will generally report monthly, sometimes more often, to make sure you, the client, understand what is going on behind the scenes. Also we want to make sure you have all of your questions addressed.  The key here with ongoing projects is to ensure you, the client, have the information you need about your marketing investment and we make it a priority to communicate this with every client as we move the needle!
