directSMS Co-founder Ramez Zaki says…
“More Traffic and Conversions, Without Increasing Costs”
“We did our own online marketing mainly through Google AdWords for years. And while we were having some success we could never dedicate the time/resources to do it justice. We were probably having a much easier time of it at the beginning circa 2003 – 2005 but as everyone started jumping on the bandwagon, we found that we kept having to up our ad spend for the same amount of traffic. There was also a big element of “you don’t know what you don’t know” in our decision to seek help.
You can sit there and try and work it all out for yourself, which would take a lot of time and a lot of money, or pay for the expertise. We opted for the later.
Marketing Results has helped us get more qualified traffic for the same ad spend every month. In addition, we have more than doubled the number of qualified enquiries via our website with increased lead quality.
We have a number of plans to branch out into new areas over the next year and naturally, we will seek the help of Marketing Results again.”
