Country Classics is a new home builder serving the New Jersey and Pennsylvania area since 1988. In September 2014, Country Classics turned to Builder Funnel in an effort to better their digital marketing and overall sales performance, and we've been working together ever since!
"We strive for excellence within ourselves, as a team, and as a company. Our goals is alwasy to have satisfied homeowners, living in community they canv be proud to call home" - Scott & Todd Van Cleef
The previous marketing efforts at Country Classics were disjointed and hard to track. Tracking growth from online sources proved to be challenging, and marginal growth was reported year over year. The owners of Country Classics wanted to better their digital marketing strategy by implementing targeted campaigns, designed to reach their target audience.
Other goals included increasing their online presence, consistent lead generation, and ultimately increasing revenue. Prior to enlisting Builder Funnel’s services, there was very little reporting and analysis being done. It was up to Builder Funnel to implement a concrete digital marketing strategy, and accurately report on the successes of our new campaign.
The data below is reflective of the website traffic for a full year before Builder Funnel's online marketing strategy. As the chart below shows, the majority of traffic came from organic search (10,849 visits) in the previous year. The next highest sources of traffic were from referral traffic and direct traffic at 4,704 and 3,336 visits respectively.
Builder Funnel was brought in to implement known successful marketing strategies to increase online traffic, leads, and new sales. Specifically, Builder Funnel would use the Inbound Marketing Methodology to generate new sales. The inbound methodology is the process of attracting strangers, converting visitors into leads, converting leads into customers, and finally converting customers into promoters for the company.
