How We Generated Over 50 Confirmed Bookings For A Nation-Wide Moving Company
We built 7 of their Facebook city pages from scratch and increased social media following by +128%.
The client offers moving services across the United States. As they were growing and moving into new markets, they needed help building awareness of their brand within the moving industry and obtaining more bookings in key markets. They are a startup so we needed to develop a moving company marketing strategy in order for them to see the ROI for their efforts.
We devised a plan to get this moving company lead generation, brand affinity, and qualified bookings. To do this we employed both organic and paid digital marketing efforts to help achieve the client’s goals. What started as 0 followers on all of their social accounts grew to 3,217 in 5 months. Our efforts also helped them to achieve 52 bookings.
