What did you like best?

Great team to work with. They took my general concept and developed an outstanding website.

What did you like least?

I assume a very popular company to work with; thus, every once in awhile (NOT EVERY TIME), I would need to send multiple emails to get a response when email requested a recipient confirmation notice. However, I'm not saying this was not a negative experience, only a potential area for continued improvement.

Describe your overall experience.

Amazing team and amazing product. We are very happy with the end result and absolutely recommend for others to work with!

What did you like best?

They are thorough, detailed, and completely transparent in how they proceed during an SEO project. I am being kept up to date on a regular basis regarding the next steps that are being planned and given the opportunity to provide input and feedback. At the beginning of the project, I was told very clearly what to expect during the first 4 to 6 months and by the end of the 12-month SEO project contract that I signed. After 4.5 months into the project, it is obvious that the stated targets were realistic and are being met. I interact with the Straight North team through Sara Rowles, the account manager for my project, who is very responsive and a pleasure to work with.

There is nothing I can think of that I dislike about my experience with Straight North. I am 4.5 months into a 12-month SEO project with them and completely satisfied.

Straight North did a great job taking our existing website and applying SEO principles to increase organic traffic leads. We have also utilized their expertise for PPC campaigns and are excited to continue perfecting our landing pages for increased lead conversion.

Throughout our relationship with Straight North we have had 4 project managers which has impacted consistency with communication and results. Our current project manager is very responsive and is the first to report A/B testing results, as well as loop in other specialists within the company to help address our questions. She has been attentive to our needs, and we feel confident she will manage our account effectively.

We probably brought Straight North in prematurely and would have had a much more beneficial relationship with them if we had waited a couple of months to figure out the types of campaigns we wanted to run before launching.

David and Sara really went above and beyond to help us 1) identify the types of lead gen campaigns that would work in our space, and 2) constantly tweak those campaigns to make sure our ads were getting in front of the right people and driving results.

Everyone at StraightNorth is highly responsive and communicative. Project management is a major strength so I don't have to worry about keeping tabs on action items and can trust they will get done. They offer in-house bench strength for content writing and blog development for topics relevant to our company and industry. They do the legwork of researching potential topics and develop well-rounded materials. Our firm has been unable to find the time to develop original publications and StraightNorth has made it easy to accomplish!

What did you like best?

I always thought the people I dealt with were personable and professional. They always take time to explain the metrics and talk through my crazy ideas and suggestions. We've seen our SEO grow and our organic traffic increase.

What did you like least?

Sometimes the writing of the blogs are sort of generic and don't necessarily scream "industry thought leader!" but you can't expect copywriters to have deep industry knowledge. That being said, they are great with submitting pieces for approval and taking edits and notes for improvement. The end result has been good and the fact that they are driving the process means we get way more content published than if I had to start from scratch.

Describe your overall experience.

StraightNorth has been good at boosting our SEO, getting organic traffic through blogs and link building. We are not first page of Google and the blogs aren't headlining industry mags but their leadership in the digital marketing area has had a net positive result and our consumer business is way up.

That is a hard question to answer since my experience has been nothing but positive. However, if I have to say something, I would say, I simply don't like paying money for marketing. That said, the return on investment is definitely there but it's still a hard check to write each month.

Describe your overall experience.

In the world of internet marketing, you don't always get what you pay for. Sometimes you pony up monthly checks to a group that doesn't get your business and you never see actual results. That is not the case with Straight North. You not only get what you pay for, you get way beyond that. They offer a full suite of services so if your website needs tweaking, they got you covered. If your SEO campaign is weak, they got you covered. If you don't understand half the stuff about internet marketing, not to worry - these guys have no problem hand holding to ensure success.
