Making A Difference For Those In Need

PrintShare Your Faith Giving Fund

At the time we created our company, we set up a 501c3 tax exempt charitable fund. We worked with an organization called The National Christian Foundation in doing so. The folks at NCF are wonderful to work with. They handle all the fund administration, legal requirements and accounting requirements for the fund. Our team reviews issues that concern the people and communities we serve, selecting worthy organizations or individuals to receive grants.

Our firm makes regular donations to the fund. You are also encouraged to donate as well. If you would like to donate to the Share Your Faith Giving Fund, click on this link. DONATE NOW

Our support for Jack is ongoing and has including things such as web design and support, marketing and advertising support, logistical assistance, food and equipment needed for the journey.

Jack says that he really enjoys the food we provide. While hiking and camping in North Georgia and the Appalachian Trail, I became acquainted with Mountain House meals. These meals are freeze dried. They can be quickly cooked in their pouch simply by adding hot water. Jack really loves the Chili Mac, Lasagna, Rice & Chicken and Beef Stroganoff. These meals are extremely light weight and very nutritious.

wpid-20150108_172532-1Jack began his journey in Tybee Island, Georgia on November 6, 2014. He has made it all the way to Huntsville, Alabama. The cold weather has slowed his progress, but, to his credit, Jack is out there in the freezing cold, running his miles everyday. During his runs, Jack often stops at local hospitals, nursing homes and Alzheimer’s care facilities. Jack enjoys talking with the caregivers and patients and always offers encouragement and kinds words to all he meets. Honestly, you will never meet a finer man than Jack Fussell.

Making A Difference For Those We Serve

SEM - Search Engine MarketingIndustry Finest PPC Programs – Google, Bing & Yahoo

You will never meet a group of people more dedicated to helping our clients find success than the Flyline Search Marketing team. Our team will work any hours necessary to ensure our clients achieve their goals. One of the keys for us in achieving this New Year’s resolution will be to ensure that our Google Adwords programs continue to stay best in class. We have thousands of hours into development of our Adwords program and we plan to invest thousands more in our strategic design to ensure it continues to out perform others in the market. We consider Google Adwords to be a mission critical component in our overall marketing approach. Clients we serve will tell you first hand, that our Adwords program is literally a strategic weapon for them. All will tell you that their revenues started to climb immediately after we activated our program for them.

FloristsFolks ask us all the time how we know that our Adwords program is the best in the market. We look at several factors. Florists we have deployed our program for have all experienced huge growth in their online sales and overall revenues. Example: In 2014, we had a florist we support experience year over year growth in online sales that exceeded 61%. Another florist we serve experienced growth in their online sales transactions that exceeded 51%. We support florists who use the flower shop website that we created, still others who use the Gravity Free website platform and another who custom designed their own site. Our Adwords program has proven equally productive with all three of these website configurations.

We don’t often talk about our Bing PPC programs, but, each customer we serve also benefits from the fact that we create a PPC program for them on Bing that mirrors the Adwords platform we run for them. It is true that Bing does not have as much traffic as Google. The truth is, Google enjoys a huge lead in web traffic market share. Google has approximately 65% of the overall web traffic, while the merged Bing / Yahoo platform has a market share in the range of approximately 30%.  Bing PPC campaigns generally deliver conversion rates that often exceed those of Google. These higher conversion rates allow our team to produce excellent sales and revenue results from this marketing platform.

 

Home Storage Solutions – Port Townsend, Washington

HSS_logo-300x150This past year, we took on several clients who could not afford to advertise. One is Home Storage Solutions. HSS is located in the Olympic Peninsula area of Washington state. The company is owned by a gentleman named John Plake. He is a terrific person who experienced more than his share of adversity during 2014. To his credit, John never lost his faith. He stood tall and continued to be a great father and provider for his two children. John found our firm while doing a search via Google. He was looking for a marketing firm to help his business and selected us because of the Christian fish symbol we display on our website. He has always told me that he felt God lead him to us. I believe that he did in fact do just that.

We operate with a truly unique approach. Going above and beyond is just what we do. Our team built John a new website. He had a website, but, the site did not allow for easy landing page development. We created a site, built are an incredibly robust WordPress framework. The site is a powerhouse and will allow us to properly support John as he works to grow his business. You can visit that website by clicking on this link: OlympicClosets.com  In addition to the website, we also felt that John was going to need a stream of new business leads, in order to get his bank account back to healthier levels. That said, we helped John with some funding for Google Adwords. The ads we ran proved very effective. They delivered enough results for John that he was quickly able to sustain his own funding for the Adwords program. Slowly and surely he is battling and building a company that can support he and his two beautiful children. Our plan is to help John achieve that goal.

Holiday Flower Shop Sales Achieve New Heights

Christmas Tree We are just now wrapping up what has proven to be a very successful holiday marketing effort for the flower shops we support. Floral design firms we support all experienced strong growth in overall sales volume, conversion rates, average value per sale and gross revenues.

During fourth quarter of 2014, which includes three major holidays; Thanksgiving, Hanukkah and Christmas, adwords campaigns we manage generated more than 3,274,751 ad impressions and 54,900 clicks for florists we support. For the record, our Google Adwords program designs are some of the most sophisticated used in the floral industry.

We originally created our first flower shop marketing program for Carithers Flowers, back in 2009. Over the past five years, we have deployed our strategy and marketing platform designs for other florists, located in New Mexico, California, Colorado and Ohio. Over the past five years, we have modified and continually improved the original program design. Each new installation has provided a treasure trove of new learnings, including unique demographic elements and information gleaned from the thousands of hours we have spent pouring through sales and analytics data. Our adwords program for florists has grown from a highly productive tool into a strategic marketing weapon, that allows our clients to achieve dominant positions within the markets they operate in.

SEM - Search Engine MarketingDuring the past three months of 2014, our Google search marketing program management team maintained an average overall conversion rate of 7.06%, for the florists in our floral group. The conversion rates they achieved from our Bing search advertising programs were even higher than those achieved on Google. I cannot stress enough the importance of these paid search platforms we run for our clients. The sales results are clear. Our search programs are in fact out performing other search platform designs that are available.

Our search program designs are highly evolved. In fact, they are absolutely some of the most sophisticated designs used in the floral industry. Flyline Search Marketing Google & Bing program designs are so good that we can virtually guarantee any new floral client that we will outperform anything they have ever been able to generate in the past. The proof is in the results. We recently allowed a prospective customer in New Mexico to speak with a number of our largest clients. Every single flower shop owner we allowed them to speak with all delivered the same message. They told the prospect that Flyline Search Marketing is extremely good at what they do! If they give you a chance to sign a contract with them, you should do so immediately.

I don’t know how many of you are independent business owners like I am. Let me tell you that from my perspective, there is simply no greater honor than to hear that your current clients have advised a new prospective customer to sign up and sign up quick. Even though this occurred a few months ago, it still makes me smile every time I think about all the wonderful things our customers told that prospective client about us. What an honor and a privilege it is to work with such fine people.

graphs and chartsResults in November and December were exceptionally strong. Thousands of the search advertising clicks we generated ended up turning into sales conversions for our florists. In addition, we produced thousands more sales transactions by also using a very high tech call tracking and recording system, as part of our holiday marketing strategy. During the holiday shopping period, we generated more than 3,700 phone calls for flower shops we support. Let me add some clarification to help you better understand where these calls were generated from. Each time we take on a new client, we routinely deploy call tracking and recording phone numbers in the Google Adwords and Bing sponsored search campaigns we run. In addition, we also use tracking numbers to monitor the performance and sales contribution coming from others marketing platforms, such as; Yelp, Kudzu, YP.com, Blogs and social media accounts. These call tracking and recording phone numbers provide an extremely accurate way to capture the sales contributions of each individual advertising program or platform.

arrow upAll combined, overall holiday sales for our flower shops were truly eye popping! While I won’t share actual sales data for any of the flower shops we support, I will say this much. Each florist in our group significantly outperformed their 2013 online holiday sales results. All of our flower shops have also significantly grown their sales volume, average value per sale, conversion rates and overall revenues during 2014. Each of them is positioned to effectively compete for market share and a number are already enjoying dominant positions within the markets they operate. Most of them have advised us that based on information shared with them from other shop owners they know, they are far out performing their peers in the industry.

 

Carithers Main Home Page Slide_edited-1

In addition to all the holiday search advertising we managed, our team was also neck deep in the organic marketing efforts for each florist in our group as well. We themed each clients website and blog for the holidays. We also did the same for their social media platforms. Our marketing team created stunning holiday graphics, like the banner shown above, and added plenty of seasonal products to each of our florists websites. Our team spent hundreds of hours optimizing all mission critical areas of each website. We updated landing pages, products, descriptions, meta information and much more. The plan was to ensure that every online shopper who visited the website would have a great holiday shopping experience with our client. Based on the stunning sales results that were produced, I am planning to give my team a huge pat on the back and a few, well deserved, days offs. They performed like true professionals. I am just extremely proud of the work they did and results they achieved.

Paid search, website optimization and social media are huge components of the work we do for each flower shop we support. We take great pride in the fact that we deliver far more service than what our contract requires. During the holidays, we, along with our flower shop counterparts, all work some pretty crazy hours. Still, we feel that extra effort is worth it in the end. Our extra effort has historically been rewarded through great relationships with the flower shops and owners we serve. A number of those clients have recently shown their gratitude, as several have just signed multi-year contract extensions with us. For us, the equation is simple. We work to earn your trust, respect and our main desire to be a partner with you in your business. Great working relationships and true friendships are the by products of this strategy. We value those things, far more than we do any financial benefit we might achieve from the actual work itself. In the end, nothing is more satisfying than to see our flower shops flourish in today’s very tough and highly competitive environment. We put everything we have into the work we do. The data clearly shows, the extra effort we are putting in is truly helping our clients enjoy a high level of success. That my friends is why we do this!

Between paid search, social media, blogging, public relations news releases, phone call tracking and our organic marketing efforts, we estimate that our holiday marketing strategy generated more than $1,200,000 million dollars for our florists this holiday season. Job well done team!

Flower Shops Enjoying Astonishing Growth

Flower Delivery 300Flower Shop Growth Rates Off The Charts

Data from The Society of American Florists indicates that the number of locally owned and operated flower shops in the United States continues to decline at an alarming rate. This downward trend has been going on for years. Industry leaders and flower shop owners have all shared opinions and feelings about what they feel are the root causes. In our estimation, there are likely many factors that are truly to blame. One red flag that stands out to us is, we see far too many local flower shops who don’t know how to effectively generate sales leads for their organizations. Relying too heavily on wire-in order volume could potentially be a formula for disaster, if you haven’t laid the proper ground work to win with that business model. Our advice. Learn how to generate your own sales leads.

10678508_869043607941_482773389807749643_nWhile the floral industry continues it’s shake out, flower shops supported by Flyline Search Marketing continue to grow at astonishing rates! We routinely hear back from our flower shop owners that their growth rates far exceed those of other flower shop owners in the industry floral groups they participate in. Why are they doing so well you ask? The secret lies in the great vision and leadership of folks like Charles Carithers, Brad Levy and John Veldkamp.

These florists didn’t just hire a marketing vendor to do some work. Instead, they chose to treat us with great respect and to add us to their team as a strategic partner. They placed their unwavering belief in us that we could successfully drive positive change for their businesses. Then they gave us the latitude to do our job to the best of our ability. Some think we are far too quick in taking on the heavy burden of helping a flower shop to turn their fortunes around. Heck, where we come from, we call that opportunity! Who wouldn’t want the chance to partner with some of the greatest families in the flower business. It’s a once in a lifetime chance to help these families thrive, while at the same time giving us the chance to deliver stunning results and prove that we are the best marketing team in the floral industry.

0f0d452The florists we serve are truly some of the brightest and most innovative minds in the floral industry. Most of them prefer to leave the industry spotlight to others. The vast majority of them actually seem to favor maintaining an effective degree of anonymity. These folks are simply brilliant, tactically gifted, forward thinkers who are the some of the most successful people in their industry. Oh the truth be told, not everyone we have served falls into this category, although the vast majority have truly embraced the value of a strategic partnership with our firm. At the end of the day, we can honestly say that we put every ounce of energy we have into our service. To those who continue to put their faith in us, we are honored, thankful and truly blessed for the chance to serve you and your family. Thank you for allowing us to contribute to your success.

FloristsWhat Flyline Search Marketing ultimately brings to the table is an incredibly well thought out strategy, a comprehensive marketing approach, industry leading PPC platform designs, relentless drive, a competitive spirit and and dogged determination to drive success for those we serve. It’s not money that motivates us. It is the chance to be a part of something special. We relish the challenge of helping a flower shop owner go from good to great! We will always place a higher value on our clients success than we will ever place on our own. Those who place their faith and trust in us are rewarded. We are fiercely loyal and never rest until the families we serve have achieved their goals. For those that say they don’t understand, it is not your money we desire. Instead, we seek to earn your lasting friendship, trust and respect. That is just how we are wired!

The Flyline Search Marketing team out works and out performs those we compete with. If you want to beat us, you had better plan to spend a ton of sleepless nights because while you are sleeping, we plan to be up kicking your backside. You can ask the florists we serve, our team will work whatever hours are necessary to ensure we deliver on the promise! Our program has been deployed in some of the largest and most competitive cities in the United States. It has delivered results in all of them. We are talking cities such as; Atlanta, Albuquerque, Columbus, Denver, San Diego, Long Beach and more. As new clients have partnered with us, our knowledge and ability to identify local and regional demographic differences has steadily gotten stronger. In addition, the new marketing opportunities have allowed us to continually refine our approach and platform designs.  Our advertising program was capable of delivering a seven digit annual revenue result five years ago. Today it has morphed into a strategic weapon, designed to deliver astonishing results for florists who partner with us. The truth is in the sales results. Flower shop owners we support have significantly grown their brand strength and now hold commanding, dominant positions in the markets they choose to operate in.

Couple visionary leadership with the best marketing program in the industry, sounds like a formula for a very successful, long term business partnership. Are you interested in working with us?

New Website For Pete’s Plumbing

Home Page Employee PhotoPete’s Plumbing Inc.

New WordPress Website | Responsive Design | Robust Framework

We are nearing the completion of the brand new website for long time client, Pete’s Plumbing. They are a local, family owned plumbing company that we have truly grown to love. The owners are Rick and Julie Lippitt. If you haven’t met them, you are missing out. They are two pretty incredible people!

aboutuspageJulie runs Pete’s Plumbing and Rick runs their sister company, R. A. Lippitt & Sons. Julie and Rick also have several children and some of them work in the business with them. Pete’s Plumbing handles residential and commercial plumbing business in Alpharetta, Atlanta, Buford, Cumming, Dawsonville, Marietta, Roswell and other surrounding communities. They can fix anything from a leaky faucet to a main waterline problem. R. A. Lippitt operates with a focus on commercial plumbing business. Their primary customers tend to be Condominiums, Apartments, Colleges, Schools and large office complexes. R. A. Lippitt serves customers all over the southeastern United States.

Wordpress LogoThe new website we are creating for Pete’s Plumbing is built on a robust WordPress platform. The design is responsive in nature, meaning the website is actually able to detect the specific type of device that is trying to access it. Once it determines the device, the website adjusts it’s display to maximize the users experience on the site. For example, if  a person with a Samsung Galaxy S5 were to try and access the site, the website would serve up a full mobile version of the content to that user. If you have a smartphone, you may want to visit the site to see what we are talking about. On your smartphone, open a new browser, then key in the development URL we are using, which is (http://www.PetesPlumbingAtlanta.com), you will see how the site configures into a full mobile website. Then, assuming you have an Apple Ipad or a Microsoft tablet, run the same search. You will see how the site adjusts the display for the tablet device to look more like the full desktop version, with the exception that everything is sized perfectly to fit the screen dimensions of the tablet. Pretty cool technology for sure.

Pete’s Plumbing is a second generation plumbing firm. The company was started by Rick Lippitt’s father, some 40 years ago. They are an absolutely fabulous company. If you are looking for a high character, ethical and professional plumbing firm, we highly recommend Pete’s. They have handled all of our plumbing needs for the past six years and honestly, the price, quality of service and professionalism of the plumbing technicians has just been outstanding!

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Beautiful Faucets

[one_third last=”no” class=”” id=””]Faucet 225 C[/one_third]
[one_third last=”yes” class=”” id=””]Faucet 225[/one_third]

Water faucets come in all different styles, shapes, colors and sizes. Pete’s offers virtually all major brands, including favorites such as; Delta, Moen, Kohler, Price Pfister and American Standard. Their prices for faucets and installation are very reasonable and Pete’s does offer a full guarantee on all work they perform. Again, we have been using Julie and Rick for all our plumbing needs for the past six years and they and their folks have really taken great care of us.

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Gas & Electric Water Heaters

[one_third last=”no” class=”” id=””]A.O. Smith Vertex 50 Gallon[/one_third]
[one_third last=”yes” class=”” id=””]American 30 Gallon[/one_third]

Water Heaters are the mission critical to any home. There are lots of brands out there and Pete’s offers all the most popular. The biggest question in most homes though is what size water heater do you need? We encourage you to contact Pete’s and let them help you to determine the right size and type of unit to best fit the needs of your home. We have a three story home and Julie recommended that we go with a larger 50 gallon gas water heater. We had a 40 gallon that originally came with the home and honestly, there were times when we just ran out of hot water. So far, the 50 gallon unit is working well and even when we are running lots of laundry, we still seem to have plenty of hot water for showers, the dishwasher and other needs. We were actually tempted to try a new, more expensive tankless water heater system, but, Julie convinced us the 50 gallon gas unit would do the job. Glad we listened.

Pete’s Plumbing Offers Tankless & On-Demand Water Heaters

If you have never experienced a whirlpool or garden tub, you are missing out. There is nothing better after a hard day of working in the yard than to come in and soak in a luxurious whirlpool tub. All the aches and pains of the day seem to just melt away. There are tons of great styles and models out there so it’s easy to get lost in all the advertising and special offers. My vote is to ask someone like Pete’s, who installs and services garden tubs. Folks, like the Lippitt’s do this for a living and are most likely going to be able to give you the best advice on which type would be right for your home. I know one thing for sure. If our whirlpool tub breaks down, we are calling Pete’s Plumbing to come and fix it!

wpid-imag44811Our good friend Jack Fussell is about to begin his second run across the America. That’s right. Jack is planning to run, walk and talk his way across the entire United States. Jack completed a similar run in 2013. The original journey took him approximately 7 months and two weeks to complete. Very soon, Jack will begin his second journey #AcrossTheLand. This trip will include even more stops at Alzheimer’s facilities, nursing homes, senior care facilities and hospitals. Jack also hopes to stop in and visit with each of the Alzheimer Association offices that he meet with during his 2013 journey. He formed many friendships with the various staffs and volunteers who work in those offices and he forged a very strong bond with many of them.

Veldkamp’s Flowers Signs A Two Year Contract Extension

10678508_869043607941_482773389807749643_nFlyline Search Marketing CEO, Mark Lein, announced today that Flyline and Veldkamp’s Flowers have agreed to terms on a new two year service agreement. Mr. Lein advised that a full press release would be issued later this week, providing more details about the contract.

Veldkamp’s Flowers originally hired Flyline Search Marketing in November of 2013. They tasked Flyline with designing and deploying a comprehensive marketing strategy for their firm. The comprehensive program Flyline created proved extremely productive over the past 12 months. Paid search and organic marketing elements of the program helped Veldkamp’s to significantly increase online sales. The program not only delivered increased productivity from the website, it also generated stunning increases in call-in sales, walk-in sales, credit card sales, wire-out orders and drove additional wedding and event flower business for Veldkamp’s. Veldkamp’s has been able to lower their dependence on wire-in orders. They have also benefited from an overall increase in brand awareness.

20140421_120231Mr. Lein, explained that the program deployed for Veldkamp’s was originally created for Carithers Flowers. Charles Carithers, owner of Carithers Flowers, operates one of the most highly successful Flower Shops in the Southeastern United States. Charles hired Flyline Search Marketing in January of 2009. He originally tasked Flyline with helping his firm to improve their Internet presence and online footprint. The comprehensive marketing approach for Florists, grew out of the relationship between Flyline and Carithers. That program has since been deployed by Flyline for other flower shops located throughout the United States. Flyline currently serves some of the most successful florists in the country, such as; Carithers Flowers in Atlanta, Peoples Flowers in Albuquerque, Allen’s Flowers in San Diego, Flowerama in Columbus, Veldkamp’s Flowers in Denver, Allen’s Flower Market in Long Beach and Allen’s Flower Market Online in Reseda.

daffodilWith the addition of each new florist to the Flyline client group, came the opportunity to collect even more data from the program and to enhance and improve the overall design of the various platforms being used. Over the past six years, this comprehensive program has grown from a great idea into a strategic weapon for florists it’s deployed for. Every florist in the Flyline group has reported tremendous growth. Most report that their overall sales and revenue results far outpace those of other florists in various floral groups they participate in.

Another component of the program that has really paid huge dividends is the fact that all the florists in the group have done a great job of communicating with each other on things like best practices, flower vendors and top performing products. Flyline has created an open forum and an atmosphere that promotes a safe and secure environment where florists feel comfortable in sharing all kinds of strategic information and knowledge. This approach has delivered tremendous value for all the members of the Flyline Flower Shop user group.

New Website For Rain Metal Systems Inc.

Roof Gallery 1Rain Metal Systems, Inc

Just put the finishing touches on a brand new website. We created a new site for Rain Metal Systems, Inc. They operate a firm out of West Georgia that offers Metal Roofing and Gutter installation and repair. The company is family owned and operated by Mr. Jeff Hudgins. Rain Metal Systems offers all types of metal roofs. They specialize in hi-tech roffing such as Copper, Corrugated Metal,  Tin, Aluminun, Galvalume and Steel.

The website is built on a sophisticated WordPress framework that is fully responsive. In essence, the website is designed to alter it’s display to provide the best possible experience for Desktops, Laptops, Ipads, Tablets, Iphones, Androids and other smart phone devices. When the site renders for a smartphone, it actually creates a true mobile site design that is aesthetically nice and extremely user friendly.

Roof Gallery 10The folks at Rain Metal Systems, Inc. have been a customer of ours for nearly five years. We support them by providing website design and management services, Pay Per Click program management and website optimization. The website will provide their prospective customers with useful information and a great portfolio of high definition photos of jobs recently completed. The site is also designed to allow customers to easily communicate with the principles at Rain Metal Systems in requesting Free Estimates for work they need done at their home or office.

30_albumRain Metal Systems provides services for both residential and commercial applications. They are famous for the work they do with Copper. Check out the photo just to the left of this text.  They installed an incredible copper gutter system for a homeowner in the Atlanta metropolitan area. The copper gutter project was completed using all copper fixtures, including the unique collector heads featured in the photo. Rain Metal Systems serves West Georgia, North Georgia, the Atlanta Metro area and parts of Tennessee and South Carolina.

Roof Gallery 9Another really cool project they worked on was the installation of a beautiful copper and glass roof. The roof also has a number of built in Skylights, set in copper framing. This particular project was done for a residential homeowner in the Atlanta area.

We created three photo galleries on the website to help customers of Rain Metal Systems to see the great work that they do. We built a gallery for Metal Roofs, another for Gutters and a third for Under Deck roofing installations. We plan to update the home page design to eventually include a responsive slider so that customers will be able to glean even more valuable information about Rain Metal Systems from the home page. The website has a full featured Customer Management System that is extremely user friendly. Our client has full access to the CMS and also has been given access to the C-panel account as well. We created a number of email accounts for the customer, with forwarders set-up per the customers instructions. The monthly hosting account we provided for Rain Metal System cost only $29 dollars per month.
