The ChallengeBrokering Transformer sales is a competitive field. While UTB is the best in the business, they have not been around as long as many of their competitors. UTB needed two things to happen: First, a website that communicated the professionalism and stability that UTB provides its customers. Second, be found online by those searching for Transformers and compel them to use UTB as their transformer connection. UTB tried several website design and Search Engine Optimization solutions, but did not feel they were producing the results necessary. UTB also was not receiving organic traffic to their website due to not being ranked by search engines such as Google, Bing, and Yahoo.
The SolutionUTB approached Innovation Simple in Provo, Utah to help them create a website that would stand out from the crowd of competition and generate new business. Through intense keyword research, original content creation, and stellar web design, Innovation Simple created a strategic approach for UTB to market themselves successfully online. Brett Carter, President of UTB, said of the process,
“The team at Innovation Simple was able to take my industry and make it their own. They took the time to understand who my customer is and what their needs are. Those efforts resulted in an excellent finished product and overall great experience for me. They are easy to work with and professional.”
The ResultsUTB has seen dynamic results from their new website and its ability to convert web traffic into a sales lead.
Bottom line — To be honest, I expected at the peak I would receive one or two leads a week from my website. However, because of the work that is being done ranking my websites on the search engines, and the fact that once they get to my website they are impressed, I am currently swimming in leads. The lead flow has far surpassed my original expectations.The partnership between Innovation Simple and UTB has proved to be very successful. UTB is a great example of niche marketing. Because of that and Innovation Simple’s expertise in niche marketing, UTB has experienced nearly 400% increase in leads and we expect UTB will be successful for many years to come.

The ChallengeWhen we first met Rich and Gin Bontadelli, they were beside themselves. For them, it was as though they had no webmaster. Their current provider would not update their website, much less were they achieving the rank in Google that were looking for. In fact, their website was falling out of Google search engine results pages.

As we began the search engine optimization for Rich and Gin, they began to stabilize themselves in Google and over a period of a few short months, the results were apparent! Gin Bontadelli said this:
Excellent service, great follow-up, quality work, professional! We have had a great experience from the on-set of our business relationship. What is most impressive is this company truly has provided the service they were hired to do.

Company: Innovation Simple
The ChallengeIn the fall of 2006, Innovation Simple got started with no sales people and with no real experience selling marketing services. Gaydon, the owner, was committed to starting a company build on inbound marketing and not the traditional “pull” approach so often seen in business.
The SolutionA website was built and optimized over time for chosen keywords and was continually updated with blog posts, new web pages, link building and social media strategies! Gaydon Leavitt said:
My business runs on SEO – it says a lot to our clients that we eat our own dog food. Its also nice when people call in to talk about SEO and we ask them how they found us and they say “Google”.
The ResultsWith Gaydon and two employees, Innovation Simple went from no website to the highest ranking website in its sphere in St. George Utah. Later, after deciding to expand its influence, Innovation Simple wanted to dominate the entire state of Utah. As of 2010, Innovation Simple has been the highest ranking site for its chosen keywords and experienced growth near 300% each year since this move. To put it simply, Innovation Simple built its entire company on SEO and leads from search engines remain the #1 source for leads in the company.
