Mike, the owner of Arizona-based Scottsdale Air, approached us because he was frustrated by the results of his current lead generation efforts.
He had been investing for several years into HVAC digital marketing lead generation campaigns that were built and run by big box agencies.
Mike had expected much better results based on the amount of money he had invested in these campaigns.
The company’s promises of high-quality traffic and leads never came to fruition and felt that his questions and needs weren’t addressed in a timely manner.
So, Mike reached out to our team for a more effective lead generation campaign from a company who would tailor their efforts to his industry and work with him every step of the way.

DETAILED PLAN OF ATTACK
#1. Website Development and SEO Optimization
First, we addressed the website layout and design. Our web design team focused on creating a website that would make it easy for site visitors to convert into actual leads.
We based our updates on proven lead conversion optimization techniques and SEO best practices.
The result was a more user-friendly, responsive design and layout specifically formulated to enhance site engagement and attract more qualified business leads.
It is very important that your marketing team pay close attention to the constantly refined SEO algorithms in order to help your website to maintain high keyword rankings.
For example, our SEO experts ensured a mobile-friendly design for Scottsdale Air’s new website; if we hadn’t done this, their website would have ranked far lower in Google search results because Google Algorithms put so much weight on mobile-friendly websites, especially for home service businesses.
#2. SEO Optimized For Google
You’ll see a significant increase in the amount of search engine traffic driven to the company website in the below graph by our proven SEO lead generation campaigns.
This increase in targeted traffic has played a key role in helping Scottsdale Air become an undeniable authority in their local niche market online and, more importantly, attract 3 to 4 new high-quality customers a day from the Internet.
Ranking Six Pages on the First Page of Google
Our expert SEO team was able to rank Scottsdale Air on the 1st page of Google for six of their pages.
When someone would search for a target keyword like Scottsdale air conditioning, the company occupied 6 positions on the first page of Google with the following associated business properties:
- Their website homepage
- Their website contact page
- Their Yelp business page
- Their BBB.org or Better Business Bureau page
- Their Facebook business page and their business location.
- Their maps listing
That’s OVER 50% ownership of organic results for main keywords on Google's 1st Page.
#3. Email Marketing
Next up for our HVAC digital marketing plan, we wanted website visitors to sign up for the company’s monthly email newsletter.
Scottsdale Air's email newsletter continues to generate impressive results while providing a constant means of communicating with customers and more chances of turning them into lifetime buyers.
The campaign has a lifetime open rate of 39.2%, which means that over the course of the company's 2+ year-old eNewsletter campaign, just under 40% of all recipients opened their e-mails.
Almost 10% clicked on a link inside the email—that means their email list is active and likes what we are sending their way.
#4. Social Media
Next, we got to work optimizing Scottsdale Air’s social media pages.
By establishing a consistent brand and strong message on popular social media websites like Facebook, LinkedIn, and YouTube, Scottsdale Air gained immediate credibility and positioned themselves as a serious player in their local HVAC market.
Staying active on social media has helped the company build a fence around their customers and prospects.
In addition, when interested prospects are looking for a trustworthy HVAC company on social media, Scottsdale Air makes a strong impression by remaining available to answer questions online.
#5. Integrating an Automated Customer Review System
Online reviews are becoming ever more important to a business’s overall reputation.
That’s why we implemented a turn-key customer review system that automatically requested reviews from their customers so the responsibility to get customer reviews wouldn't fall solely on the techs.
We eliminated that responsibility from the company's customer review request standard operating procedure.
Our customer review system consistently converted 30% of happy customers to glowing online reviews; this boost to Scottsdale Air’s reputation was priceless and has directly impacted the company’s prospect-to-customer conversion rate.
Take the Hard Work Out of HVAC Digital Marketing
When Scottsdale Air partnered up with Online Visibility Pros, they needed to build an Unstoppable Online Lead Generation Machine, capable of consistently attracting profitable customers from the Internet.
Fast-forward a few years and our HVAC lead generation team has help Scottsdale Air generate a consistent flow of new, profitable customers from the Internet every single day.
Highlights – HVAC Digital Marketing Campaign:
- 430% increase in online lead generation efforts in first 5 months of the marketing campaign
- Integrated a turn-key online review system into the Scottsdale Air business that helped produce consistent, high-quality online reviews at a predictable 30% customer review rate.
- Consistent social media posts that engaged followers through education, humor, and timely promotions that engaged audiences.
- Leveraged an award-winning monthly eNewsletter service (Maxx Email™) that generated a 39.2% open rate over a 2-year period. According to Constant Contact, the average open rate in the construction industry is 22%.
- Attracted on average 3 to 4 new customers every day from the Internet, far exceeding Mike’s original goals.
Just as importantly, the our team helped Mike do two very important things:
Mike gave us the grunt work and led us into his vision that ultimately saved him effort and time that he would have invested in learning and implementing techniques that may not even work.
He saved time from:
- Researching marketing techniques
- Labor over communication with his marketing company
- Conduct time-consuming experiments to find the best marketing strategies.
Instead, Mike and his team were free to focus on the most important part of their business — serving their customers — while our team improved their digital footprint and kept them updated with comprehensive marketing reports.
Mike received a tremendous ROI from his investment in our digital marketing services.
He saved money by:
- Outsourcing his marketing needs. In-house marketing experts can cost anywhere from $50-100,000 per year to achieve what we achieved at a fraction of the cost.
- Not hiring and training employees, paying taxes on them, paying their benefits, and providing both office space and equipment is enormously expensive.
Mike made the smart investment by avoiding all of those extraneous costs and choosing a partnership with Online Visibility Pros that would take his HVAC company's online presence to the next level and allow his business to grow for years to come.
