“I have people calling about the workshop already… thanks for all your guidance. I am getting lots of feedback about my website and how wonderful it is, very pleasing, very informative. Kudos for you and your team.”
“I am very impressed of how nice the blog turned out especially since I gave just a few topic titles for you to work with. When I answered your email the other day, I was in a rush in between patients and I realize that I did not give you a lot of information. You obviously did your research and homework on the topics and made it work! Thanks again for a job well done.”
“I just wanted to say AGAIN how delightful your staff is to work with… What a RELIEF! I am grateful – it seems like service with a smile should be the rule of the day, however it often is not. My experience doing the first webpage [with another company] bordered on abuse and I think I actually might have post traumatic stress syndrome regarding it! I look forward to working with everyone at McDougall Interactive. Thanks!”
“I had an old cgi shopping cart with about one hundred products in it a few years ago. Our site was in frames and people complained that if it did come up in the search engines they only got part the frame. Now I have a nine hundred page site that ranks in the search engines for so many key phrases and instrument names that my traffic has increased dramatically. I have had to pay more for bandwidth because my hosting company says they need to charge me more since so many people are using the site. They have increased the bandwidth charges 2 or 3 times. A good problem to have.Much better than the 25k a mo. banner ads that I’ve heard can generate less clicks and have poor conversions. We have also done a bit of pay per click advertising and have had some success there but we feel there is a better ROI on the optimization, especially given the fraudulent click problem with PPC. Now I’m convinced that optimization is where it’s at.”
“I wanted to take an opportunity to thank you for all of your hard work, diligence and attention to detail throughout the entire process of creating our website, PinnacleLending.biz . We have been extremely pleased with all you have suggested, come up with and put into action. You are truly a team player. We would be happy to recommend you to any business owner who would like to create their own website. Thanks again!!”
“After a couple false starts with other companies, I finally found the perfect partner in McDougall Interactive. They paid attention to what I needed and listened to my ideas. Their designer came up with the perfect look and feel for my business. Also, the audio on my site sounds great and works without a hitch, thanks to McDougall Interactive’s multimedia expertise. Now that I’m higher-ranked in search engines, I’ve been getting more calls from prospective new clients.”
“Thanks John, we were in England last week and did a google search for one of our artists – we came up as the first hit! We are thrilled and feedback has been very good!!”
“I just wanted to drop a line and say it was great to attend your seminar yesterday. Stephen and I both felt it gave us the opportunity and space to think creatively about our work and help reinforce our marketing goals (especially in regards to content!).”
“John, I just wanted to thank you again for putting on such a great seminar yesterday, it was one of the better ones I have ever been to. I have already started the process of making videos/podcast to promote the firm, thanks again!”
“Hi Abby – We really like the initial web design – it looks great! We had hoped to sit down today to review the text, but never got a chance – I am sorry, we are busy and overworked and understaffed!”
“These guys are truly professional – they listen, analyze the problem, develop a plan, advise you, and produce results without killing the budget.
The most impressive thing about them to me is that they not only respond quickly, but they actually know their business. We have tried other SEO & SEM firms in the past that produced little or no results, because they didn’t have the capabilities or knowledge about search engines that they claimed to possess.
One company (a large East Coast ad agency) actually did things that hurt us badly – their sloppy methodology inadvertently removed us from the search engines for a period of time. MCDI came in, fixed the problems, and we’ve used them ever since.
The person you want to speak with is the owner, John McDougall – nice guy, no high pressure, and extremely knowledgeable.”
“Thanks to both of you (and anyone else who helped) for the SEO of my website — it was amazing to see how quickly I rose in the ranks. I’ll have to be careful it doesn’t go to my head being #1. LOL. Of course it will take time, I’m sure, to see the real life results of what that means for my business, but I’ll keep you posted on the progress.
You’ve been great to work with on this and made it very understandable to a computer illiterate like me and got it done so quickly.”
“Yesterday, a couple hired me for the husband’s DWI. His wife, who did the online research on Google, told me that it was the videos you filmed that were the deciding factor in her choosing me over several competitors.”
“John delivered a compelling program at the chapter’s regional conference on Internet marketing that left the audience with practical strategies on the best ways to increase your ROI. It was quite apparent that John has an in-depth understanding of web marketing strategy, as well as Google Panda and Penguin algorithms and how they impact search results.”
“I truly enjoyed working with you and your team! You educated, informed and drove results. It’s been an absolute pleasure!”
“Hi John, Thanks for all the hard work you continue to put in. cheers.”
“You and your team did a wonderful job for us and I was excited to see the improvements you made to our digital marketing efforts.”
“Hi John, This is perfect! Thank you so much for sending this along – it is exactly what I was looking for and helps me easily translate our success to date.”
“Great results so far! We’re very excited about our progress. Thanks!”
“Picture a blind man (me) being guided (by you) through a (Google) minefield. Everything you (and the “McDougall Team”) have done for me and my website is more than I ever could have imagined. I’m trying not to sound “unprofessional,” but it’s wonderful! Again, thank you!”
“I learned more today about web-based marketing than I have in the last 10-12 years. As you will come to learn, I’m not too sentimental, nor am I shy or humble about my abilities. I’ve often struggled with the fact that I’m one of the very best trial lawyers around (both DUI Defense & PI), but my internet presence was either stuck or becoming just another face in the ever growing crowd.
I can’t wait to harness all the talent, vision, creativity and knowledge that each of you bring to the table, and I appreciate your willingness to explain things to me as we go. I’m actually inspired. It feels like some very dynamic, strong, smart people “have my back” on the web, while I wail away in Court day after day. The reduction in my stress level from a business/practice perspective can’t be overstated. I can’t wait to kick butt on the web and bring my firm to the next level. Thanks again for all you are doing.”
“The shopping cart might break because of the activity! Sales attributed to search engine optimization grew 100%.”
“McDougall Interactive built a new site for The Essex Room, which launched less than 6 weeks ago. They’re also doing search engine optimization and paid search for us, and already we’ve gone from 4 leads per week to 15 leads per week. Everyone at McDougall Interactive is kind, courteous, super smart, and easy to deal with. They put difficult, hard-to-understand concepts into layman’s terms and break complex processes into easy-to-understand, logical steps. The experts at McDougall handle everything from search engine optimization and analytics to social media and conversion optimization, and they’re all charming people.”
“I just wanted to say that I am blown away by you guys. If Washington D.C. worked like this group, I would feel no need to run for office.”
“Because you did an excellent job ranking HAOL to #1 in yahoo, I got an offer from a competitor to buy me out! It’s not an outrageous sum of money, but it worked! Thank you.”
(The company has since been bought out based solely on the #1 ranking.)
