Here’s what a few of our clients have to say.

 

Our experience with David Carleton has been Platinum.
Bottom line…we get leads, and lots of them, because of what we
have deployed through David’s knowledge and experience.

We enlisted the services of David Carleton two years ago to help us optimize our website, increase our rankings and get lots of leads. With David’s wealth of knowledge and depth of experience, we worked with David well through a process of exploration, examination and execution. He has such an awareness that others that we tried didn’t have and he expeditiously implemented a marketing plan that continues to bring leads to us from people who are somewhere in the sales funnel that we can work through to eventually get sales from.

Dave responds quickly to all communications and gets things done without delay and need for further follow up , which saves us time, aggravation and money.

David has been refreshing for us because we tried several other web site developers and they simply didn’t know how to put us in a top position to be the store of first choice for those seeking to buy our grills, hot tubs, spas and fireplaces.

David’s approach is a winning strategy that works well in all of our sales efforts. He works quickly to implement what is discussed and is a great networker sharing experiences from other retailers around the country as to what is working and what needs tweaking or reformatting.

Our experience with David Carleton has been Platinum. He isn’t the low cost guy on the street. He gives us a non-compete territory, honors it and produces measurable results. He is Street Smart…literally and is a great value at what he charges for his services.

Bottom line…we get leads, and lots of them, because of what we have deployed through David’s knowledge and experience.

Dave is much more than your typical Internet marketer. We have definitely generated a lot more qualified leads and conversions due to his efforts

Dave Carleton came highly recommended by several other pool and spa dealers that have been impressed by his results for years.

I am glad to report that he did not disappoint. We have definitely generated a lot more qualified leads and conversions due to his efforts!

Dave is much more than your typical Internet marketer. His experience and understanding of the pool and spa industry combined with his proven strategies make him unique.

Although we initially hired him to work on our hot tub Internet marketing, Dave has made it a point to understand all our major product categories so that he can help us promote our seasonal lines like patio furniture, fireplaces, game rooms, etc.

We have frequent online marketing meetings where we review our analytics, past performance, and search engine rankings and then make adjustments and plan future strategies. Dave has made many website improvement suggestions and then taken the lead on and worked with other outside vendors to get the assignments done.

I highly recommend Dave Carleton to any dealer looking to gain better search engine rankings and ramp up their lead generation efforts.”

We hired Dave Carleton to get us on page one of Google. I am pleased report that he has exceeded our expectations in this area.  Not only are we on page #1 (which is hard enough to do), but in most instances our website is  #1 on page #1.

We also asked Dave to help us develop a strategy to turn website visitors into leads.

Dave created a hot tub buyer’s guide then implemented a unique Internet marketing strategy to drive more traffic to our website. The system worked and almost immediately, the leads started coming in.

In addition, Dave took over the monthly maintenance of our website and updates it as needed to make sure we stay current with our hot tub promotions.

Dave is quick to return our calls and has provided very quick turnaround on all our website changes.

In addition, he takes the time to explain what he is doing, why he is doing it and what results we can hope to achieve.

 Dave Carleton has directly affected our businesses growth by sky-rocketing our internet presence and lead generation.

He keeps current with SEO tactics and has helped us dominate Google pages with organic rankings and Pay Per Click ads.

All his efforts to drive business to our website and capture a lead’s email address, has directly affected the growth of our business in an economy where most businesses have suffered a decline. His efforts include creating a mobile website, modifying our existing website, creating a Buyer’s Guide for online users, updating social media pages, and creating monthly campaigns targeting specific cities.

I am pleased to report that traffic and sales have increased. I credit Dave’s hub and spoke marketing strategy

We have made only one major change in terms of marketing in the last 3 months – we hired David Carleton from Spa Pool Dealer Success to upgrade our Internet marketing efforts. We decided to focus on my Minneapolis stores and I am pleased to report that traffic and sales have increased. I credit Dave’s hub and spoke marketing strategy.

What I like about Dave is that he takes the time to explain his strategies, solicit our input and then executes as promised. In addition, Dave has made himself available to answer my questions even on weekends when most “traditional” marketing agencies are closed. If you are looking for an “out of the box” approach, personalized attention and proven results, then I suggest you call Dave.

David was recommend to me by another Internet marketer. After our initial meeting, I hired David to update and optimize my website and create a few mini-sites for specific keywords in my niche.

David also took the time to explain the logic behind the strategies so that I knew “whys” behind what he was doing.

Thanks Dave for your help.

Traffic and sales are up, we rank either #1 or #2 or both on dozens of keywords on Google and we continue to grow our business. I have told David that whenever he develops a new Internet marketing strategy , if he recommends it, then I want to do it. Dave is reasonably priced, honest and over delivers on his commitments.

Dave did a website makeover analysis and we were very impressed with what we learned.

I run a traditional “bricks and mortar” store selling high-end products. With the slumping economy, we were looking for new ways to drive more traffic to our website and ultimately to our store.

Dave did a website makeover analysis and we were very impressed with what we learned. Not only did Dave give us some great tools to use, he also showed us what our competition was doing right and wrong and how we could use that to our advantage.

He even showed us how to tie in our website to some aspects of our offline prospect follow up program to help close more sales. The website makeover analysis was definitely worth getting!

Our sales have increased over the last few months and the only thing we did different was to hire Dave Carleton to do our Internet marketing.

Dave optimized our website, created a lead generation strategy and then implemented several strategies that have gotten us on page one of Google for our most important keywords.

When we ask our prospect customers how they found us, they tell us that we seem to be everywhere on the Internet. That’s what we hired Dave to do and that’s what he did.

Melinda Dalacas – Southwest Spas

Our company has been working with David Carleton since 2010. Since that time we have doubled our annual total sales due to his Total Integrated Marketing Strategy.

Since we do not have an in-house marketing specialist we rely on David to continue to market our website with TIMS. Due to Google’s constant changing of algorithms we could not keep up with the changes and rely on David to show us the best path forward.

The best path forward is discussed monthly with a review of previous month(s) performance – detailing not only what worked for the past month but also previous months with respect to all facets of TIMS. We have had great success with our Free Report download on our website and highly recommend this product as the ROI is the best of all marketing mediums we have tried in the past 6 years. In summary, we have been pleased with David’s marketing guidance and we are grateful he is on our team! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

We are noticing a significant increase in phone calls & foot traffic.

Just wanted to thank you both for all your hard work for us. The website is working and providing much SEO, better than it ever has since it was started in 2009. We are noticing a significant increase in phone calls & foot traffic; people are telling us they found us by going online & searching keywords & having us pop up in certain areas. The PR, YouTube Vid, SEO, Website, everything looks great and we really appreciate it.

Just wanted to let you know that the SEO your team did is making a difference.

When I type in “hot tubs” with no city attached, we are on the first page four times. This is exciting to me as previously we were not on the first page at all, in spite of our 42 reviews online. I have no doubt whatsoever that this is money well spent.
