The Challenge

Halt Pest Control understands the importance of marketing and advertising online.

It’s why they hired a local designer to build them a website.

It’s why they created pages and pages of digital content loaded with helpful information about pests and pest management.

It’s why they decided to enlist the help of a digital marketing company to create and run ads on Google.

But Halt Pest Control also understands that an investment in digital marketing and advertising doesn’t come with guarantees. They made a sizable investment in digital marketing and advertising, only to see little in the way of calls from new customers with new jobs.

Halt Pest Control was doing a lot of online marketing and advertising, but they weren’t doing it the right way.

  • Halt Pest Control had a website—but it looked the same as every other pest control company in their community.
  • Their website had plenty of helpful content—but none of that content was created to position Halt Pest Control as the best service provider in the area.
  • Halt Pest Control invested in pay-per-click (PPC) advertising on search engines—but they weren’t actually tracking their results to see which ads were working and which ads weren’t.

“After years of no clear Internet marketing strategy, our online presence was a mess, and we weren’t seeing the growth we wanted. I was looking for a marketing company that could take our digital presence to the next level.”

—Robert McMaster, Owner of Halt Pest Control

The Solution 
A distinctive website that clearly promotes Halt Pest Control’s services.

“Our new website helps customers see that we’re a premium service company, and they’re able to learn about what sets us apart. Ever since we launched our new website, the quality of our leads has gone up. It’s easier to make sales because the people who are calling in are already sold on our services.”

—Robert McMaster, Owner of Halt Pest Control

Digital advertising that attracts customers from all over the county and boosts transparency with trackable data.

“We started to get a lot more calls from people who were finding us on Google. And as a result, we’ve been able to meet and exceed the goals for growth that we set for our company.”

“What’s nice about our new marketing company is that I don’t have to constantly check in with them because I know they’re always working on our campaigns and paying attention to what’s working and what’s not.” 
—Robert McMaster, Owner of Halt Pest Control
