SEO clientsContracting an SEO firm is a major commitment — and even with an award-winning Internet marketing firm that’s been around since 1996, hearing what actual clients say about their experience with BCI is invaluable.

Clutch (formerly SourcingLine), an independent research firm based in Washington, D.C., recently interviewed four BCI clients as it prepared to release a series of reports ranking digital marketing agencies in major cities (Clutch currently ranks BCI as the No. 1 digital marketing agency in Los Angeles and the country).

Read what the following clients had to say in completely independent interviews regarding their experience working with BCI:

  • The Golf Warehouse
  • Soundproof Cow
  • Sylvan Learning
  • Netpicks

The Golf Warehouse: ‘It’s All About Web Architecture, Rather Than Performing for a Particular Term’

The Golf Warehouse, a sporting goods retailer, rated BCI:

  • Quality of Work: 5/5
  • Ability to Meet Deadlines: 5/5
  • Value for Money Spent: 5/5
  • Overall: 5/5

The Golf Warehouse approached BCI after attending a few SEOToolSet Training sessions. With a goal of improving organic search rankings, BCI played a consultative role on SEO matters including site architecture, page load times and overall improvement. The result? A 50 percent increase in traffic, which has doubled since last year.

“Everything that they tell you to do is grounded in that general approach to SEO site-wide rather than one project’s web architecture,” said Tom Murray, the content development manager for The Golf Warehouse.

Soundproof Cow: ‘We Are Definitely Satisfied. They Are Extremely Knowledgeable and Easy to Work With’

Soundproof Cow, a company specializing in high-end soundproofing equipment, rated BCI:

  • Quality of Work: 5/5
  • Ability to Meet Deadlines: 5/5
  • Value for Money Spent: 5/5
  • Overall: 5/5

Soundproof Cow started working with BCI after meeting Bruce Clay at an SMX event last year. The goal was to corner the soundproofing market with a newly-branded website optimized to increase web traffic, call-in volume and website sales. BCI was hired by the soundproofing company for monthly SEO consulting and pay-per-click management. After working with BCI for almost a year, Soundproof Cow reported significant increases in keyword ranks and a 10 to 35 percent increase in traffic volume and revenue. The biggest impact was the decreased cost of acquisition by almost $100 per click.

“We are definitely satisfied. The way that BCI and all of their employees operate is extremely professional, they are extremely knowledgeable and easy to work with. We signed with them for another year,” says Michael Unger, Soundproof Cow’s director of IT and marketing.

“Soundproof Cow was very diligent about implementing everything we suggested, which played a huge role in their success,” said client liaison Justin Moreau. “The key to a great working agency-client relationship lies in trust and open communication, which was present from day one with Soundproof Cow.”

Sylvan Learning: ‘They Over-Delivered in Almost Everything’

Sylvan Learning, a national tutoring company, rated BCI:

  • Quality of Work: 5/5
  • Ability to Meet Deadlines: 5/5
  • Value for Money Spent: 5/5
  • Overall: 5/5

Sylvan Learning reached out to BCI after seeing Bruce Clay at a conference. The tutoring company needed to establish the groundwork for a new website being designed by a separate agency without a strong foothold in SEO-friendly web development. The search engine optimization agency was brought onboard to work with the third-party agency to oversee development of the site while keeping SEO in mind.

Sylvan’s digital marketing manager Matt Corasanti noted that the BCI team was “very clear in setting expectations.”

Since working with BCI, Sylvan Learning reported an increase in valuable traffic.

“Within weeks, we were able to show up on first page ranks on 18 new strategic keywords. That is a big task, given how competitive our industry is,” said Sylvan’s senior director for digital marketing Ya-Yung Cheng. “Bruce Clay was on the entire time. There wasn’t anything I would change in their service, deliverables, or commitment to us. If anything, they over-delivered in almost everything. They were so flexible in working with various players: the internal tech team and outsourced tech teams. They actually communicated and delivered meeting notes with every detail, so we and our technical teams were clear on what to develop.”

Netpicks: ‘I’m Very Satisfied. I Haven’t Worked With an SEO Firm This Structured and Organized’

Netpicks, a trading education company for active investors, rated BCI:

  • Quality of Work: 5/5
  • Ability to Meet Deadlines: 5/5
  • Value for Money Spent: 4/5
  • Overall: 5/5

BCI helped Netpicks develop an SEO strategy that included reorganizing the website for improved visibility and removing search engine penalties that was impeding their success in search.

“Some of the cleanup work and getting fresh eyes has helped quite a bit and probably improved the user interface,” said Netpicks founder Mark Soberman. “You have to be patient, but once you are, it pays off. I haven’t worked with an SEO firm that’s been this structured and organized. That was always the downfall for the others.”

The CEO reported a 25 to 40 percent increase in organic traffic and the reappearance in SERPs for key terms that had dropped off the radar previously.

“Netpicks has a great team that works well with us to accomplish tasks and meet their deadlines,” said BCI’s client liaison Stacey Bullington.
