A Little Customer Love

Scott Price Sandlapper Soap“Keyword-based SEO improvements increased our inbound search engine traffic from single digit percentages of our traffic total to more than 30% of our total inbound traffic during the past Christmas season, our busiest time of the year. The 300% increase in search engine traffic floored me. Sandlapper Soaps remains a big fan of Kim Merrit-Butler and The URL Dr.”

What others say about us

Scott Orth

“When I created a virtual in-house team for our International Nutraceutical client, Kim stood above all in her expertise of complex, multiple site PPC engagement. Kim did an amazing job wrangling a ton of data, and getting these accounts in order. Also, her analytic skills gave the team the ability to see where ad budgets were being wasted on poor ROI, and where we could better position our online marketing dollar.”

“The 300% increase in search engine traffic floored me. n our second year of operation, we were profitable on fewer number sales, but with an increased average sale price due to our engagement and reduction of advertising costs. Wow.”
