Whirlwind Post Holes & Fencing Case History

Whirlwind Post Holes & Fencing, LLC of Appleton, Wisconsin, provides fence installation and post hole drilling for residential, industrial and commercial properties. Whirlwind is an expert in all fencing, from wooden privacy fences and picket fences to chain link dog runs and security chain link fences. They also provide post hole drilling services year round.

In the spring of 2015, Whirlwind started questioning their current advertising partner on the effectiveness of their campaigns and ROI.   They contacted BPM for initial talks on how their online presence should be managed.  A large portion of their budget was going towards pay per click advertising with a well known yellow directory.  Whirlwind was spending $2,200 a month, and results were slim to none.

BPM started research with website analytics and other keyword searches. It was found that pay per click advertising was still going to be the best option for Whirlwind.  BPM started the campaign and was able to save Whirlwind 70 percent of their pay per click budget each month.  The customers were now being delivered to Whirlwind’s website in droves.  In talking with Whirlwind about the 2016 season, they grew so much that we have added radio advertising as one of the tools this year.  We have also started recruitment advertising on radio due to the huge growth.  Whirlwind now has the capacity to add additional fence installation crews.

“The transition from our previous marketing firm to Baer Performance Marketing was easy and proved to be an excellent choice for our business. From the moment our online campaign kicked off, the phone started ringing. We had a meeting to discuss the strategy and areas/keywords to focus on. Jake did a great job explaining how everything works and gave us feedback right away on how things were working. Jake even came to our business to show us again how things work for everyone involved in our business. A few minor changes afterwards and the calls started coming in. We get consistent feedback from Jake and Aaron on our monthly reports. The detailed feedback is extremely helpful. We can see that everything we talked about is working. Any questions or concerns have been quickly addressed and answered right away.

From the results from our online campaign and the proper “keywords” combined with the knowledge and experience that Aaron and Jake bring to the table has helped us grow our business and reach out to many new customers.

If you are ever questioning what you were paying for before or had any doubts in the results of your previous marketing company. Contact Aaron and his team. They can give you the straightforward feedback on what those actual numbers are. They can take that info and create a plan to better utilize your respective budget, get you better results and show you those results.

We look forward to working with Aaron and Jake and the rest of the BPM team in the future on many more projects and marketing needs. Their ideas and innovative strategies are priceless. Makes us wonder what we were paying for before, now we know.”Chris Lang,  Whirlwind Fence
