Take the case of Mondal Enterprise providing packers & movers and real estate brokerage services along with stationery retail shop in Birhata, Bardhaman. Until March of 2015 before coming in touch with us as part of our face-to-face marketing with local businessmen, owner Bimal Mondal was generating orders only through his local contacts, word of mouth references. Here are the three things we did that led to Mondal Enterprise seeing a significant rise in the number of leads now generated through the World Wide Web:
- Launched separate websites of their real estate business www.bimalmondal.space and packers & movers business www.mondalpackers.space.
- Listed Mondal Enterprise on Google My Business.
- Created Facebook business pages (packers & movers www.facebook.com/mondalpackers; real estate www.facebook.com/bimalmondalrealestate).
Though the owner himself seldom uses computer, all he needs to do is attend phone calls to convert leads generated by our online endeavors into paying customers.
