Client Story: Hillcrest Plumbing

The story of the original Uncle Bill’s Hillcrest Plumbing & Heating is a classic tale. It’s a small business that has been around for over 50 years and is trying to stay competitive amidst changing industry dynamics thanks to big corporations like Home Depot.

Uncle Bill’s Hillcrest had a unique branding challenge because they had sold the rights to their business name to another plumbing company who opened an office under the name “Hillcrest Plumbing and Heating” just down the street. The ‘other’ Hillcrest was investing in digital marketing and had achieved high local and organic Google rankings.

Prior to engaging with us, the client was a mess of a situation. They did not have access to its own website data. They had no tracking mechanisms in place to measure the churn of its digital assets. Plus, they were being outranked and outplayed by their competitors.

The Problems

  • Competitor with the same business name
  • No access to website data
  • Lack of tracking to measure results
  • Outranked & outplayed by competitors

The Solutions

  • Implement a comprehensive tracking plan to measure and nourish the impact of its website and other digital assets​
  • Increase search visibility for local and organic keywords
  • Increase the number of inbound phone calls
  • Increase the number of followers and engagement on social media channels
