(Phone call testimony)
It’s been an absolute pleasure working with you, Kathy. You are consistent and your work ethic is the kind America is losing. This project is the biggest thing I’ve ever worked on and you have been a big part of that. I truly do appreciate your help with our product.
I just wanted to say how much I appreciated your work on the CNS project. Having spent 10 years with Foote, Cone, & Belding; Mojo; and, DDB I have seen some great writers. Since those days in the 80’s, I’ve seen a lot who did not know anything about selling, about strategy, and it was a joy to find someone who ‘got it.’ You demanded background, a creative brief, strategic thinking and, as such, you were able to create truly professional work that will sell and build business. I also like the fact that you continually revise and edit to get things right. Rich Vitaliano, a great writer and friend (he wrote the TV spot that taught E.T. to ‘phone home’) always insisted that you cut and edit until the ad or website had to go live. You did that. Great Work!
I paid quite a lot of money to a web developer who did do a good job, but I needed some help … previously I had been told, ‘It’s up to Google; it’s up to Google; just wait for Google.” Which is true to a degree, however, like most business people I don’t really like waiting for other faceless organizations … once Kathy Andes had given me some tips, my sales increased by 40% alone … my bounce rate has dropped to about 8% … I’ve probably earned eight times what I’ve paid her in her services, so it’s definitely worth it.
Kathy, I just want to let you know that since you worked on my web site, my in-store traffic is up 21% and delivered sales are up 26%. Plus my advertising costs are down 11% over the prior year, same period. Thanks!
There’s nothing but good news on the Internet. Someone in San Jose found us. He has a place in Oakhurst. He ordered $13,000 in flooring … I deal with a lot of professionals everyday and you are by far the most professional person I work with.
My Internet business was up and running for two years without much success or calls. By the grace of God, I found Kathy. In a short time, she was able to reword the pages of my web site in such a way as to use keywords that were suitable for the product I sell. The results were immediate. The phone started ringing and the orders came. She wrote the pages so well that when they call, they’re ready to buy. Come up first in the organic search without having to pay a dime to Google. I would recommend her services to anyone who wants to get results and more customers.
Kathy, I just wanted to take the time to drop you a line and say thank you for the great job on the website. Your attention and follow through on the project was refreshing. Although the changes have only been active for around 8 weeks, the already good phone traffic from the internet has had a dramatic change. Analytics and statistics aside, we still do it the old fashioned way, “How did you hear about us” Thanks for a great job and we look forward to future business.
Kathy, Just thought you would like to know that I just spoke with someone from Bruce Wilkinson’s [author Book of Jabez] organization, and he said that our website and banquet page are excellent. They work mostly with CPC’s, and many of them do not even have a site, let alone one as nice as ours. He was practically in awe that we have such a nice site and have links to purchase tables, etc. I wanted you to know that your fame is spreading!
