What I’ve Been Writing About

My Client Feedback

Significant Increase in Business

“My experience with 1st on the List and Neeraj is that I am more involved than ever before.  I know my business and he knows what his is and together I can already tell before the website is complete that it will be a more converting style of website.  (I actually have never had anyone explain this to me or what the difference is between a ‘nice’ looking site and a ‘converting’ website)  By Neeraj getting my input on the most important parts of our business – it’s helped him to optimize appropriately.  Because of us doing this I have been completely educated on the entire process and have a full understanding of how our website will work.  

We recently started our SEO campaign with 1st on the List in December and already we have noticed from last June to this June a significant increase in business so this is good news!! Usually, we have a decrease in the % of sales when the weather is warmer however now we have had a dramatic increase! So not only have we had an increase but it’s happening when typically sales are down! Big deal on our end. There was a 19% increase in sales in May 2018 compared to May 2017 and better yet, we had a solid 26% increase in sales in June 2018 compared to June 2017.”
