Greater New York City Area

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.
We are a driving school in the New York City area. We have a couple of driving school locations in the New York suburbs.

What is your position?
I am the vice president of the company. I handled the work with ThinkBIGsites and am responsible for our website and marketing plan.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with ThinkBIGsites.com?
I wanted to drive more revenue to the company. We want parents and student teachers to find us online after searching for relevant schools. We operate in a competitive industry because there are many driving schools and private teachers.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.
ThinkBIGsites offers only SEO [search engine optimization] services to our company. Paid search is handled by a different agency.

How did you come to work with ThinkBIGsites.com?
We made a Google search and interviewed three or four firms, ultimately choosing ThinkBIGsites. It was important to us to find a firm that was an expert of their own craft. We only wanted to work with companies that were highly rated on review sites and all over Google's front page.
We didn't want to work with a small agency that couldn't rank their own website. ThinkBIGsites was well known and accessible, so it was an easy decision.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
The annual cost of ThinkBIGsites's services is $10,000 or more. I cannot give a more precise amount, but it's definitely more than $1,000 per month.

We have been working together for a year and a half. We have a monthly arrangement with ThinkBIGsites. We have no immediate plans to leave them and will stay with them as long as we see results.

Under $15,000 Per Year

"The cost-per-acquisition has gone down significantly. Even though we're now paying $750 per month instead of $500, we're doing five times the business. To me, this was a good result and makes ThinkBIGsites a great value." — Owner Dog Breeding Co

2-10 employees
Nashville, Tennessee area

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.
Hurricane Creek Doodles is a business specializing in designer dogs. We raise purebred poodles combined with other purebreds. The Bernedoodle is our number-one bestselling animal, but we also raise Goldendoodles and English doodles.

What is your position?
I am the owner of the company.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with ThinkBIGsites.com?
We wanted to increase sales and profits through our site, where most of our business is run. We sell high-dollar dogs that can't be sold in the numbers that we produce in a small area. We're located in Tennessee, but we sell our animals to Connecticut, California, Alaska, and so on.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.
ThinkBIGsites provides SEO [search engine optimization] services for our business. My son-in-law designed our website and got our online presence started. We do not run a pay-per-click campaign. We used to have paid ads, but it was too expensive. We buy dogs on an ongoing basis as part of building up our breeding stock. I know what looking for a dog can involve. I often visit the same site 10 times, without buying anything. I don't know if this same behavior was true for our site, but we needed to get a good return-on-investment for our advertising. We were paying between $500 and $1,000 per month, without actually making sales. I needed a solution that would place our site at the top on a permanent basis, making us available to people who actually search for breeders instead of simply clicking on an ad. SEO has a cost, but it's still cheaper and certainly more effective than pay per click.

How did you come to work with ThinkBIGsites.com?
We had used another company in the past, but they didn't deliver the results that we wanted. I liked the concept of SEO, so we started shopping around for other agencies. We made web searches, looking to see what companies appeared in the top results, as this would be a direct indicator of their efficiency. I also read reviews on a few different rating portals. I met ThinkBIGsites' principal [Mark Arner] and found him to be very personable. I also liked the fact that, in the beginning, we received a month's services for free. We weren't bound by a contract and could opt-out at any time. We'd been badly burned by our first company. We paid them $5,000 without seeing any sales as a result. ThinkBIGsites plan had a lower risk, so we were fine with taking a shot. We saw immediate results from that, even though they were not overwhelming. Right now, though, we receive seven to 10 contacts each day.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
The monthly cost of ThinkBIGsites' services is $750.

What is the status of this engagement?
We have been working with ThinkBIGsites for around six months. We haven't decided on having a long-term relationship with ThinkBIGsites yet, but I would not consider stopping the work right now.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
I figure out what my expenses are on a yearly basis in order to determine what the profit for each litter will be. In the past, advertising was a huge expense, relative to our business volume. The cost-per-acquisition has gone down significantly. Even though we're now paying $750 per month instead of $500, we're doing five times the business. To me, this was a good result and makes ThinkBIGsites a great value.
It is hard to determine what the actual impact of ThinkBIGsites' work has been, given that we can only sell the number of dogs that we currently have. No matter how good their services are, I cannot go past that number. As such, I wouldn't even want to limit ThinkBIGsites' results to the 400 percent increase in our sales. I've had to put some clients on waiting lists, which is partly because certain breeds get more demands at certain times. Based on the people that call to inquire, I estimate that our sales could even be double, if we were able to meet the demand.

What distinguishes ThinkBIGsites.com from other providers?
I've only used two SEO agencies so far. The first ones talked about their future accomplishments to great lengths, but they didn't deliver. When I confronted them about this, I was told that I'd bought the wrong package. I told them that they should stand behind their work and do something to address the results instead of telling me that it was my fault. ThinkBIGsites gave me exactly what I wanted.
I recently talked to them about adding a new search term for another dog breed. ThinkBIGsites did it without extra charge. Right now, I have zero complaints about them.

Is there anything ThinkBIGsites.com could have improved or done differently?
They could contact me more often, but the phone works both ways. I can call ThinkBIGsites whenever I want.

RATINGS

We ask that you rate ThinkBIGsites.com on a scale of 1 - 5, with 5 being the best score.
How would you rate them for the quality of their service and deliverables?

4.5 - Our site is not on the first page of results for every breed that we sell.

How would you rate them for scheduling, as in meeting deadlines and compliance with a project timeline?
5- I'm more focused on selling my puppies than on what our online status is. If ThinkBIGsites ever missed a deadline, I wouldn't know. My website was a constant hassle before using ThinkBIGsites, but now I hardly look at it. I usually only update prices and enter new litters. I don't check to see if it's running correctly, which is a huge improvement. When we were running pay-per-click advertising, I would have to be on top of it every day. ThinkBIGsites is in charge of my advertising, people call me and I pay the bills. As long as business is running, I don't care if ThinkBIGsites is on time or not.

How would you rate them for cost, as in value and conformance with project estimates?
5 - ThinkBIGsites did exactly what they said they would do.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
My account is small in terms of most clients that they service. I only spend several hundred dollars per month. I spend less than $10,000 per year, but my investment makes a large impact. I don't track analytics but I know my ROI [return on investment] is strong.

What is the status of this engagement?
I've been working with ThinkBIGsites.com for almost one full year [since 2015]. The work is ongoing, and I have no plans to stop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
ThinkBIGsites.com has been helpful to me in many ways. I haven't done any meaningful tracking of my metrics, though. I don't pay attention to the Google Analytics reports because I'm not skilled with the technical parts of my website. I can say definitely that my customer phone calls have increased. I am growing my sales because the help of ThinkBIGsites.com. I probably should track results, but I haven't yet.

How did ThinkBIGsites.com perform from a project management standpoint?
They are very friendly and attentive to my account although it's not large for them. I appreciate their communication and professionalism.

What distinguishes ThinkBIGsites.com from other providers?
Thinkbig gets results in terms of leads generated and sales. I've tried other SEO firms that weren't good and didn't deliver any meaningful results. ThinkBIGsites.com is the real deal.

Is there anything ThinkBIGsites.com could have improved or done differently?
I couldn't say anything major. I am happy with the results provided by ThinkBIGsites.com. I only judge them based on qualified leads that call me. They are successful in this regard, so I have no complaints. I would recommend them to other small business customers.

Greater New York City Area

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.
We are a golf travel company. We set up custom packages for clients of golf courses in the United States and Europe. We help people book vacations easier and save time and money.

What is your position?
I am the founder and Chief Executive Officer of the company. Our website is our primary asset and I am the main employee.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with ThinkBIG?
I wanted to have a better ranking on Google, on the SEO side of things. We generally focus on Google organic search results to get most of our new and most valuable clients

My goal is to find the best types of clients that will book several vacations over several years. These clients are worth thousands each to me.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.
ThinkBIG manages all the factors that go into getting the best possible ranking on Google. They provide article submissions and SEO improvements. I only engage in organic SEO, with no pay-per-click advertising.

How did you come to work with ThinkBIG?
I did some online research, looking at how different SEO companies were ranked. If I recall correctly, ThinkBIG appeared consistently within the first five positions in many lists, with few fluctuations. I called the companies that ranked in the top positions most often, and was sold by the conversation had with the representative at ThinkBIG. They also have very good pricing, compared to what they offer. ThinkBIG is far more competitive than any other SEO companies which I contacted, and from what I understand, they are able to achieve this by employing a remote staff and not paying for a large location. They pass on the saving to people like me.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
The monthly cost for ThinkBIG services is $500. I've made some changes to our package and estimate that the monthly cost will rise to $750 to $1,000 in the future.

What is the status of this engagement?
We've been working together for one year. I have put the work on hold for a month and a half because the quoting system for my company is changing. This had nothing to do with ThinkBIG.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
I haven't hit the first page of Google results yet, but this is more to do with my budget and the competition in my field. We've stayed on page 2 for the bulk of our targeted keywords, which is satisfactory to me.

How did ThinkBIG perform from a project management standpoint?
Whenever I have any concerns or issues, ThinkBIG is by my side helping me out. They're good for SEO issues, but if I happen to ask a question that is outside of that scope and has more to do with what would be best for the website, the ThinkBIG team is more than happy to have a discussion with me.

What distinguishes ThinkBIG from other providers?
I've enjoyed chatting with the CEO of Thinkbig and picking his brain. He understand the overall business environment for online businesses and knows how to grow in many industries.

Is there anything ThinkBIG could have improved or done differently?
I can't name anything that ThinkBIG should improve. I am completely satisfied and even consider their top people my friends. I can even joke and laugh with them while we discuss business and personal matters.

We have 5 additional questions. For each of these, we ask that you rate ThinkBIG on a 1-5 scale with 5 being the best score.

"ThinkBIGsites has been very responsive whenever I asked for early reports, delivering them to me without complaining. They are much better than other SEO agencies I tried." — Senior Advisor and Cofounder, Lending Agency

11-50 employees
Washington DC Metro Area

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.
AB Nicholas is headquartered in Washington, D.C. We provide lending against securities portfolios for franchises and businesses, acting as a business founding company.

What is your position?
I am the senior advisor and a cofounder of the company.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with ThinkBIGsites.com?
We were targeting a number of keywords that we knew were quite popular, but also difficult in terms of obtaining a high Google ranking. I had developed a few sites with a previous company and knew that getting on the first page of results could take a few years. We developed a new site in 2011, and it became very difficult to obtain a good ranking.

We chugged along on our own, trying our best to use LinkedIn and other social platforms without getting a higher ranking on Google. We also bought AdWords, which was very expensive. Eight months ago, we decided to try an SEO [search engine optimization] service, being fully aware of the fly-by-night companies out there.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.
ThinkBIGsites provided SEO services for us. We made a selection of five keywords and went to work. Within the first month, we received a report through which we could see some improvement on the words that we were targeting.

ThinkBIGsites employs individuals to actually write articles for us and publish them with our embedded links. They are actually solid, interesting articles on the subject of securities and related topics. They're placed into good-quality sites, which I was surprised to see.

How did you come to work with ThinkBIGsites.com?
We simply wanted to find a firm with good reviews and a good track record. We wanted to find a positive reference as well, so we did our homework and narrowed the selection down to a couple of options. ThinkBIGsites was the one that we chose. Their principal explained the process for us, and we also spoke with a project manager who worked with us on solidifying the best possible keywords for the project.

I can't remember exactly how we found them, but it may have been a top-ranking review site that compared SEO services. I looked at a couple of firms and found one that looked legitimate. Whenever I research a company, I will look at their website, determine for how long they've been in business, read testimonials, certifications from the Better Business Bureau, and so on. From all of the choices, ThinkBIGsites looked like the most solid fit for us.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
The monthly cost for their services is $500, so the total cost is about $3,000 to $4,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?
We have been working with ThinkBIGsites for six to seven months. We've to take a pause for the moment, but may go back to them if we see sliding for some of our keywords or if there are new ones that we decide to prop up. ThinkBIGsites is only keeping an eye on the keywords for us and letting us know if anything major is going on.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
One of the biggest keywords targeted was "stock loan." When we started out, our site was on page nine, reaching the fourth page within a month. During the next month, we hit the bottom of page one, so ThinkBIGsites worked very quickly. Other ones moved up as well, but slower.

Out of the five keywords we targeted, our site ended up on page one for three of them and on page two for the other two. There have been a number of three-word searches that we didn't even solicit and for which we're suddenly featured on the first page. "Stock-secured loan" is one example. We're pleasantly surprised to see this, and ThinkBIGsites has done a good job for us.

How did ThinkBIGsites.com perform from a project management standpoint?
We receive reports on the actual work being done, including incoming links and what kind of publications those are featured in.

What distinguishes ThinkBIGsites.com from other providers?
I've had a couple of bad experiences in the past with small SEO firms. When I first started working with ThinkBIGsites, I was skeptical. For the $500 I was paying each month, I wanted to see something. ThinkBIGsites has been very responsive whenever I asked for early reports, delivering them to me without complaining. They are much better than other SEO agencies I tried.

When we asked a detailed list of the results of their work, ThinkBIGsites went beyond the two keywords that we were targeting, instead listing three to four items. We checked each one and saw that they were right, not just giving us a pretty speech. On many instances, our company was number one after the ad listings. I have only positive things to say about their group. They pretty much do what they say they're going to do. ThinkBIGsites is a bit pricy for a smaller firm, but $500 per month isn't such a bad price, considering the results we've received.

Is there anything ThinkBIGsites.com could have improved or done differently?
ThinkBIGsites allowed me to swap one of the keywords targeted, given that it was clearly unachievable due to its attractiveness to mortgage companies. They were realistic with me and let me know that it was a tough one to tackle. We only ever came to page three of the results for it. I asked ThinkBIGsites to swap the keyword, and they allowed me this, although the new one didn't get high results, either. I explored whether we could swap the word once more, but they told me that it wouldn't be possible without moving to the next pricing class. I consider that they were justified in their decision, and I don't resent them, but ThinkBIGsites could allow two swaps every six months or something of this nature, whenever a keyword isn't working out. I would call it a minor issue, though.

We were initially on the sixth page for it, which was unacceptable if we were to attract the right clients to our business. Within a little more than a month, the keyword reached page one, which I consider to be an amazing feat. From my perspective, ThinkBIGsites did everything that they promised, plus a little bit more.

Feedback summary:
The client is very satisfied with the work delivered by ThinkBIG. They delivered a huge increase in traffic and qualified leads that lead to a direct, measurable increase in the firm's bottom line. ThinkBIG is highly recommended to others in all industries.

" At the start, we would get around 40-50 referrals from previous customers, and 10-15 from the internet each month. We are now seeing 60-70 referrals from the internet after ThinkBIG took over. This has led to a growth in our business." — Office Manager, Fencing Company

11-50 employees
Pittsburgh, PA Area

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.
We are a garage door company located 20 miles north of downtown Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. We are a family-owned business focused on installing and servicing garage doors, entry doors, and awnings.

What is your position?
I am the Vice President and Treasurer of the company. I am also in charge of marketing and sales.

OPPORTUNITY/CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with ThinkBIG?
We hadn't had great luck with our organic search efforts and were looking for a new agency. It’s very difficult to find and keep a solid SEM [search engine marketing] agency.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.
ThinkBIG offer organic SEO services to us. We're currently focusing on 20 keywords, with great results. I check my rankings personally in order to make sure that we're still in the top positions on Google, Bing, and Yahoo.

I am using a different company for ad words. I am happy with them and I don't want to switch. I also don't like putting all my eggs into one basket.

How did you come to work with ThinkBIG?
I came to know them through a friend who suggested their company. I met with one of their representatives and also checked references. I had to be careful, given that our previous company had been very hit-and-miss in terms of results. We contacted them and engaged in a test project, focusing on ten keywords.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
The typical annual cost for their services is around $10,000-12,000. ThinkBIG is very competitive within the market, especially when comparing their services to ad word costs.

What is the status of this engagement?
We have been working together for two years. The work is completely ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?
I am very happy with ThinkBIG. Initially, we found new business through referrals, not focusing on the internet. When we did engage in more internet marketing and started working with ThinkBIG, our leads increased two-fold. At the start, we would get around 40-50 referrals from previous customers, and 10-15 from the internet each month. We are now seeing 60-70 referrals from the internet after ThinkBIG took over. This has led to a growth in our business.

How did ThinkBIG perform from a project management standpoint?
Even though they're based in New York, they feel like a local company. Whenever I need to make a change or fix an issue, I can call them and have it addressed immediately, instead of leaving voicemails and waiting for days.

What distinguishes ThinkBIG from other providers?
Organic work is very cut-and-dry, as long as the customer knows what they want. The hardest part of it is choosing the right keyword. ThinkBIG has provided extensive research for what terms are right for our business, broken down by the categories that we supplied, like garage doors, awnings, and so on. They've picked variations of words relevant to each one.

Is there anything ThinkBIG could have improved or done differently?
I wish that they had a local representative. I like to actually meet the person I'm buying services from once every quarter. ThinkBIG will email and phone me occasionally, but I wish we could have more personal contact.
