We have one goal: Help our clients grow their business. Every win for our clients is a win for us. Read some of their success stories:
Avendra recruiters learned new skills and immediately used them through the Talent Community Site to connect with highly qualified, and valuable, applicants. This saved time and money for the company, and showed applicants that Avendra was comfortable with engaging on the social web.The project also educated other Avendra associates about social media and they used this new talent to connect with vendors, suppliers and partners. Bolstering their relationships added strength to their business affairs.The upper management acceptance of the social media plan, and how it could be implemented company wide, was a direct result of the plan we envisioned and executed.
|Land Trust Alliance (the Alliance)
Land Trust Alliance hired Holley Creative to develop a social media plan to galvanize support for their annual conference. Our mission was to increase attendance among past conference attendees and turn comtemplaters into first-time conference goers.By building a blog, performing custom upgrades to an existing Facebook fan page and establishing a presence on Twitter, we helped the Alliance create conversations across several social technologies to connect returning conference attendees with prospective newcomers.A Facebook Connect application was also built for conference registrants to share their attendance with their Facebook friends.
Not only did the Alliance reach their desired attendance levels, their Facebook page fanship more than doubled, and they established over 100 new meaningful connections on Twitter. In addition, the interactive and collaborative social platforms added a significant measure of value to the entire membership. This has strengthened the Alliance’s ability to further champion the efforts of local communities and constituents.
Porterhouse Designs, an interior decorating firm, approached Holley Creative about using social media to increase brand awareness and market a new e-decorating service. We offered consultation on business blogging and content marketing. We also helped the client launch a self-hosted WordPress blog.
As a direct result of launching a blog, the client has received several press mentions and has been featured in the Washington Post, House Calls, House Beautiful, Blog Watch and Apartment Therapy. Her blog has become extremely popular and receives approximately 500 visitors per day. Most recently she was selected to be a lifestyle spokesperson for the national brand Sherwin-Williams.
|Going Gray Blog
Sometimes success is an accident, as was the case with the author of a blog who noticed a spike in traffic after posting about the topic “going gray”. Deciding to further the discussion on this popular issue, Holley Creative was hired to facilitate and expand on the conversation women were having about “going gray.”Our solution was to create and design a niche blog that targeted a growing demographic and then connected them via blog posts and comment forums.Once the blog was running at full speed, Holley Creative turned its attention to content marketing strategy that included the creation and publication of an eBook entitled “Color Me Gray.”This publication collected the story of 24 women from all walks of life and related their experiences with defying society’s definition of beauty.
Since its launch in 2008 Going Gray Blog has been a phenomenal success. The site currently racks up an average of 700-1000 page views per day or 28,0000 per month.The blog has excellent organic search engine rankings for keywords such as “gray hair”, where it consistently ranks in the top 5 search results on Google.
The blog enjoys global readership with visitors coming from 98 countries and receives press mentions from news outlets such as the Huffington Post, Wallet Pop and the CBS Evening News.
Balancing the web presence, Going Gray features a hyper-active Facebook page and Twitter presence.
The “Color Me Gray” eBook debuted in 2011 and continues to serve as a source of passive income while channeling new visitors and readers to the blog.
Prosperity Acres,a family-owned business that sells organic beef and goat meat, contacted Holley Creative about using social media to connect with buyers in Southern Maryland and the surrounding area. To assist Prosperity Acres, we built a WordPress blog to serve as their sole online presence. We also helped connect their blog to Facebook and Twitter.
Just three weeks after the launch of their blog, Prosperity Acres sold out of meat for the entire season. Customer testimonials began pouring in on Facebook and the blog. Prospects and customers have been very impressed with new site and enjoy the interaction they now have with the owners. The success of our plan left Prosperity Acres asking – where’s the beef?
