Outstanding Advertising Results
Glowing reviews with all kinds of wonderful adjectives are a dime a dozen. The kind of outstanding advertising results that justify glowing reviews are much, much rarer. That’s why these Bright Orange Advertising reviews are light on adjectives and heavy on actual dollar-and-cents results:
A few days after our first blog post for YouCompli.com went live, the client emailed, “As you know, we posted the piece this week and sent it out to our email list and on LinkedIn. I just wanted to let you know that so far it’s making up 20% of traffic to our blog for the past 6 weeks, and people spend, on average, 4:45 reading it, compared to our sitewide average time on page of 1:30. Thanks again for your efforts – I’m excited to keep building from here!”
The owner of Senior Insights reports that “Throughout the years, Bright Orange Advertising has delivered the highest quality work, contributing to the business’ overall success and growth. Bringing industry expertise and a collaborative nature to the engagement, their team has been valuable and appreciated as a partner. Although I can’t directly tie this to only Bright Orange Advertising’s efforts, my business has seen wonderful growth of over 30% each year. All of their work is top-notch quality. They do everything possible to ensure we’re happy with the deliverables.”
Jewish Community Center– Incremental membership dues brought in by recruitment newspaper campaign produced a 10.55:1 ROI. (The campaign also won a Bronze Effie award for advertising effectiveness, tying the United States Marine Corps).
Invensys Software Systems – Ads attracted top readership scores in B2B magazines. Magazine advertising departments were so impressed with the ads that they gave them premium positioning at no extra cost. By clearly spelling out for the first time what products did and how they benefited manufacturing companies, the campaign gave focus to a floundering, money-losing division and was a major factor in achieving its first profits.
One television commercial, running on cable remnant time, increased Richmond Raiders indoor football season ticket sales by 60% over previous year. Later versions, each tagged for a specific home game, increased home-game attendance 40%, averaging 1,035 more paid admissions each game.
Milestone Solar‘s business is up double digit percentages each year, and the owner gives the lion’s share of the credit to the website we created to define and communicate Milestone’s unique brand personality persuasively. Prospects visit the site six to seven times and read almost all of the pages. When they contact Milestone for free solar evaluations, closing rate on installations exceeds 60%.
National Association of Hebrew Day Schools – Student recruitment advertising and direct mail brought participating member schools 10-37% enrollment increases.
When our client Bikram Hot Yoga Virginia Beach opened for business, its owner e-mailed, “The studio is doing so well – 32 people in last night’s 7 PM class. [The objective is 30 per class.] So many people are contacting us from the website, I feel like we’re the studio it’s ‘safe’ to practice at. Lots of people with injuries are coming in, beginners, really out-of-shape people, and they are all just loving it!…I’m surprised how many people are really getting into it for not knowing what Bikram Yoga is/was!” These are precisely the people our benefit-oriented strategy targeted. “We have gotten a lot of compliments on the website,” she added. “One lady called and asked a lot of questions She found us on Google and really liked the website and was like ‘I thought hot yoga was for super fit people…” She said the website made it sound like it was for everyone and you really can lose weight. She came in for a class a few hours after I talked to her with her two daughters. They were the average Americans, not your stereotypical yoga person, and after class they just loved it!!! The mom bought 3 Intro specials for her and her daughters and they will be back 🙂 I totally credit her calling and having the courage to come in because of the website!!!! Those are the people I really want to come in, so thank you!!!”
Virginia Holocaust Museum – One ad and mailer targeted to local attorneys raised $50,000 in donations in two weeks.
“Every time our ads run, the phone rings,” the owner of Bikram Yoga Richmond reported. The first three months of the new campaign, sales were up 9%, 10% and 13%. “The lose weight faster ad has been a hit,” she adds. “I’ve seen more overweight people coming in that want to get in shape, which is great!” Not bad for eighth-page ads running in the weekly alternate newspaper.
Microsoft – Responses to one regional radio commercial inviting IT techs to register online for Gulf Coast Windows 2000 launch event overwhelmed servers.
The Foliage Place – One 10-second television commercial costing less than $2,000 and running just 12 times brought in 185% of the previous year’s Valentine’s Day business.
