Search Engine Optimization (SEO) - Internet Marketing Objective:
IME approached Peak Positions to help increase company exposure on the major search engines. IME had learned of Peak Positions through the Association of Information Technology Professionals. Skeptical of web marketing companies, and the new business generation potential offered by Google, Yahoo, AOL, and MSN, IME reviewed all of Peak Positions materials, skill sets, and contacted several existing accounts that confirmed the significant return on investment that Peak Positions organic search engine optimization services provide. Many accounts reported that our site optimization program has been the most powerful advertising tool that their company has ever been involved in. The management team at IME began to realize that traditional media was no longer generating the level of new business that it used to. Peak Positions was brought in to help IME generate qualified, in-market, new business leads on a national level. Increasing the level of exposure on the major search engines was identified as a critical factor in helping the company accomplish several marketing goals for their web site. IME internet marketing goals included: brand building, client retention, client communication and new business development. Additionally, because geographic location is important to prospective customers, it was essential that IME also ranks high on 'Michigan' related keyword searches.
"Peak Positions has made our website a national sales force. This program has changed the dynamics of our company. Now when our independent medical evaluation specialists begin to work with these new business leads, we negotiate from a position of power."- Jan Parrish
