Client Spotlight: Urban Water Works

Local SEO + Web Design Case Study

“Really economical and results speak for themselves!”

The Project

Start Date: September 2017

Project Duration: Ongoing

Investment: $$$$

Urban Water Works is a waterline and drain specialist based out of Vancouver, BC servicing the entire Greater Vancouver Area. Owner Jeff Fitzpatrick describes business prior to 1st on the List as spotty at best. Relying on YellowPages for new business wasn’t producing the results he needed to grow business and bring in the jobs he wanted.

With the goal of better exposure, Fitzpatrick began to seek out the Top 10 SEO companies in Canada and he found 1st on the List among the best. Even though he wasn’t sure his budget was sizable enough to be represented by 1st on the List Fitzpatrick gave us a call.

This was the start of a positive upward growth in business!

The Strategy

  • Local SEO

  • Website Design

  • Content Development

Upon launching the Local SEO Campaign, Urban Water Works started to get some good listings for the targeted cities and services but had trouble translating rankings into actual jobs.

While the Local SEO Campaign continued to run our Web Design team reviewed the website from a user and conversion perspective.

A new WordPress website was created in order to better represent Urban Water Works’ services, brand, and reputation and provide a much more SEO-friendly website platform to continue running the Local SEO Campaign on.

Results Achieved

Obtained $19,000 job through new website!

Since starting to work with 1st on the List, Urban Water Works has achieved more consistent calls for jobs. The most noticeable results were noticed after the website was relaunched in WordPress and revamped for a better, more action-evoking user experience.

One recent example Fitzpatrick was thrilled to share was a website lead that turned into a one-week project producing $19,000 profit!

That type of ROI is unheard of for almost any other type of advertising spend.

“Look around and then look at 1st on the List. You will be glad you did. Their rankings speak for themselves. They were honest with me, reasonable, professional. RESULTS. In addition, their staff is amazing and they always answer their phone.”
