What’s the most cost effective way to grow your fire protection company? As traditional methods of advertising (Yellow Pages ads, billboards, direct mail, television ads, etc.) fail to produce a considerable return on investment, more and more fire protection companies are pushing their advertising and marketing dollars to the web. This means it’s no longer enough just to have a website; you have to have a website that can be found.
Kauffman Co. in Houston, TX and State Systems, Inc. in Memphis, TN came to Blue Corona with the exact same problem: they knew that their potential customers were searching for their services online, but were losing business to their competitors without a presence on the first page of Google search results.
Over the past several years, we’ve helped both these long-term fire protection clients drastically increase leads and maximize their return on ad spend.
See how we did it. Sign up for our free webinar today.

Did you know that 45% of people would rather give up vacation than their smart phone? People are glued to their phones and more likely than not, they are using them to look for your products and services online. If they have to pinch and zoom on a desktop version of your site on their tiny little iPhone screen, this doesn’t exactly create the best user experience.
And that’s if they can even find your website.
Want to show up in Google search results? Google prefers mobile friendly websites!
In what marketers are now referring to as “Mobilegeddon,” Google rocked the web world when it announced that starting April 21st, 2015, the search engine would use mobile friendliness as a ranking factor in mobile search results.
If your marketing strategy doesn’t take mobile traffic into consideration, that’s an increasingly growing chunk of business you’re giving to your competitors! In this webinar, Alex Perini will identify the top mobile marketing mistakes that are costing you business (and how to fix them).

Designing Your New Website with Lead Generation in Mind
What good is a beautiful new website if it can’t be found online? And even if it can be found, your website isn’t doing you any good if it doesn’t convert your website visitors into leads and sales.
Your website should be your number one sales and marketing tool, and we’re here to tell you that getting a website that ranks on the first page of Google AND turns visitors into leads doesn’t have to cost you an arm and a leg or take months to build!

Most small businesses assume that the best path to growth is more leads. But the real marketing opportunity for a lot of companies comes from converting more inbound calls into booked appointments. The amount of appointments your business books relies on the success of your customer service representatives (CSRs).
Blue Corona’s call handling team has listened to thousands of inbound phone calls and identified the top mistakes CSRs make on the phone. By learning more about these common pitfalls in this webinar, your CSR will have a better understanding of the different types of customers and the confidence needed to book the appointment—allowing you to get more from every marketing dollar you spend and squeeze more revenue out of your existing lead pool.

How to Connect Your SEO Performance to Your Bottom Line
Original Air Date: Tuesday, Mar. 24, 2015
If you want to grow your business, the ultimate measure of SEO campaign success isn’t rankings, website traffic, or even leads. Ultimately, everything on the web can and should be tracked. In this webinar, Blue Corona’s Director of Strategy and Analytics, Tyler Yost, will show you how to connect your SEO campaign performance to your business’s bottom line.
Meet the expert:
Tyler Yost is the Director of Strategy and Analytics at Blue Corona and works out of the company’s Charlotte, NC office.
He grew up on the South Side of Chicago and has degrees in economics and supply chain management from Arizona State University.
When he’s not busy helping our clients reach their growth goals through data-driven online marketing, he’s most likely training for a marathon (he’s done 9!), traveling with his wife (over the last five years they’ve been to Brazil, Dominican Republic, Germany, Switzerland, France, Canada, England, Scotland, Ireland, and that’s only the international list… ), or eating Chicago-style hot dogs.
*Blue Corona’s webinars are limited to qualified, prospective clients. Registration may not be approved for competitors and/or companies Blue Corona cannot help (ex. certain industries such as adult services and gambling, companies located outside North America, etc.).
“We trust our support team at Blue Corona completely and quite frankly are involved in very little of what they do for us. They truly understand SEO and what is needed to make it work. I would say this has been the most valuable aspect of working with Blue Corona. They do so with little to no effort on our part, which allows our sales managers to focus on sales rather than SEO tasks and education. For all of these reasons I would recommend Blue Corona to any business seeking Web design and a strong Internet presence. ”
