A little while back we did Google Places Optimization and started an Internet Directory Marketing program for a transmission repair shop. Business had been slow for them. This business didn't appear on the front page of Google for local searches like "transmission shops" and "transmission repair" (with the exception of one search where they were towards the bottom of the first page). The owner was spending several hundred dollars a month on online marketing with YellowPages.com, but he wasn't seeing results.
Within 3-4 weeks of us beginning work, this business began to appear on the middle of the first page for over half a dozen different local searches related to transmission repair. Most importantly, they began regularly receiving new calls from customers who found them on the internet.
A couple of simple internet marketing services performed for this business have had an immediate impact on their bottom line!
