Client Spotlight: TreeBien Tree Care

Charlotte tree service company - TreeBien Tree Care

We are excited to take on TreeBien Tree Care as a new client for our business portfolio!

They approached us just a few weeks ago after moving to their new location in the Plaza Midwood area of Charlotte.

A little background on TreeBien: Led by a husband and wife duo who run the business out of their home, this Charlotte tree service company has been in business officially for about a year now, though the husband, Mike, has over a decade of experience as a tree service professional. He started pruning trees, grinding stumps and supplying firewood to residents of Fort Mill, SC and surrounding areas in 2002, using all of his own equipment stored in a shed in his back yard. Today, he regularly services over 100 clients in the Charlotte area with the help of a large crew, some of which is outsourced from other tree service companies in the city with whom he has chosen to collaborate.

Up until recently, his wife Chelsea has handled the marketing aspect of the business, but she will be taking a backseat and moving into a receptionist position as her health has declined significantly due to stress. Mike approached us in hopes that we could help him take his marketing efforts to the next level so that he could expand his business beyond Fort Mill. After he told us his plans to move into the city of Charlotte, we were thrilled. Not only are we confident that his customer base will grow; we are excited about the challenge at hand: getting him more online visibility. (Let’s face it folks. Charlotte’s a pretty competitive market, especially in the tree service industry.)

TreeBien Tree care specializes in all types of tree services including tree removal, tree trimming/pruning, stump grinding, lot clearing, dead wooding, and firewood supply. Check out their website and be sure to follow them on Facebook and Google+!

We’ve partnered up with a local SEO agency and will tell you more about them in another post very soon. We’ve decided to outsource some of the work since this will be a pretty hefty project. But it’s one that we are very excited to take on. We’ll be posting our progress, including the company’s growth trajectory and the lessons we’re bound to learn along the way, so if you’re not yet subscribed to our RSS feed, be sure to do that before clicking away! Stay tuned for more updates in the coming months.

Does Online Marketing Work?

Digital Marketing is NOT dead


We hear it all the time.

“We just don’t think online marketing will work for our business.”

I get it. You watched another business owner try the internet lead generation thing and fail, so you figured it was useless for you too.

Or perhaps you’re not sold on a certain aspect of online marketing like social media or SEO.

I get that too. Not every business needs to be active on Instagram or Twitter. Not every company will be able to successfully target their niche market through search engine optimization. Different strokes for different folks…

That’s one of the reasons why we don’t choose to work with all businesses who submit our contact form. Some jobs are much more difficult than others, and we want to make sure we feel confident that we can deliver the results you’re looking for. If we can’t, then we’ll point you to someone who can.

We employ a very unique set of strategies that work best with certain types of businesses. More specifically, our primary focus is search engine optimization and lead generation for small, local business owners, in specialized mobile service niches like home repair or lawn care. We don’t pretend to be experts in all aspects of online marketing. We’re not a jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none type of agency. We don’t bite off more than we can chew, and we’re not ashamed of that.

So, does online marketing work? We believe it does. And our client testimonials are proof that it does. It works if you begin with the end in mind. That means having a goal, having a budget, and outlining a concise plan to achieve that goal in a specified timeframe. At Thayer Ads, that’s how we approach every online marketing project we take on.
