"Steve helped me out enormously with my small business's adwords campaign. He is responsive, organized, highly experienced, and willing to go the extra mile. I'm new to hiring a "marketing consultant" of any kind because my business is very small, but Steve quickly set my mind at ease. It became clear to me almost immediately that hiring Steve was more like making an investment in my company than just hiring a freelancer for a one-off thing. Steve replaced my DIY adwords campaign, which was bleeding money, with a comprehensive new campaign featuring new ads, targeted keywords, and full tracking through google analytics. I had all kinds of breakage going on, and Steve was able to fix all of it so I can measure the ROI for my PPC investment and reduce my PPC costs overall. On top of that, he had some great insights into improving my website to increase conversions. Throughout the whole process, Steve took the time to learn about my specific market and geographic area. I work a pretty small niche market (residential structural engineering in the Cleveland, OH area), and Steve really impressed me with his ability to learn this particular market, write ad copy that was relevant but not cheesy (I could never do this myself), and bring some out-of-the-box strategies to the table like targeting certain demographics. I felt like I was getting "big business" marketing advice from a guy working remotely from Texas on my little business in Cleveland. I'm thrilled with Steve's work, and I hope to retain him for regular consulting and adwords maintenance. He's worth every penny. Thanks, Steve!"
