Testimonials

Our company has been working with David Carleton since 2010.  Since that time we have doubled our annual total sales due to his Total Integrated Marketing Strategy (TIMS).  Since we do not have an in-house marketing specialist we rely on David to continue to market our website with TIMS.  Due to Google’s constant changing of algorithms we could not keep up with the changes and rely on David to show us the best path forward.

The best path forward is discussed monthly with a review of previous month(s) performance – detailing not only what worked for the past month but also previous months with respect to all facets of TIMS.  We have had great success with our Free Report download on our website and highly recommend this product as the ROI is the best of all marketing mediums we have tried in the past 6 years. In summary, we have been pleased with David’s marketing guidance and we are grateful he is on our team! Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

====================================

We retained David Carleton as an outside sales and marketing consultant to help us grow the company by improving and organizing our sales and marketing efforts. I am happy to say that David delivered as promised.

He started off with a strategic planning meeting for our management team.  This helped clarify our thinking and lead to a written sales and marketing plan including a SWOT analysis.  The strategies Dave implemented included a variety of methods from traditional print advertising and press release marketing, to direct mail, Internet marketing, video marketing and social media.  Dave also improved our Google ranking for our major  keywords through search engine optimization.

In addition to marketing, Dave also spent time in the office and out in the field with our sales team and intake coordinator learning the business and providing suggestions for improvements.  Dave even coordinated a meeting with one of our competitors to see how we could work together for the benefit of both companies.  If you are looking to grow your business, you can count on Dave to help you get there faster!

Patty Mahoney, Capital Hot Tubs and Saunas

====================================

We have made only one major change in terms of marketing in the last 3 months – we hired David Carleton from Local Business Marketing Success to upgrade our Internet marketing efforts. We decided to focus on my Minneapolis stores and I am pleased to report that traffic and sales have increased. I credit Dave’s hub and spoke marketing strategy.

What I like about Dave is that he takes the time to explain his strategies, solicit our input and then executes as promised. In addition, Dave has made himself available to answer my questions even on weekends when most “traditional” marketing agencies are closed. If you are looking for an “out of the box” approach, personalized attention and proven results, then I suggest you call Dave.

Thad Schaben – Hot Spring Spas of Iowa and Minnesota

====================================

I attended one of Dave’s free workshops on local business marketing and based on the information he presented thought he could help me establish my business in San Diego.  Within a week I hired him to do just that.  Within a few short months we were getting first page placement on Google for our two targeted keyword phrases.

Dave also helped me start my own BlogTalk Radio Show, grow my social media following, create a very successful MeetUp group.   As if that were not enough, Dave also helped me jumpstart my business by getting me involved in online magazines, offline speaking engagements and creating some information products.

Matt Hackett – ABRA

====================================

I asked David to provide a social media and referral marketing plan for our school. David spent a great deal of time with me getting to know our school and our needs. He asked me very well designed questions which helped us define very attainable and measurable goals. When David presented the final plan, I was impressed by the number of ideas and options he presented, none of which were strategies the school currently utlized.

His recommendations were very straight forward while at the same time very thought provoking. is suggestions helped us develop several new approaches to our overall marketing strategy. David has continued to follow up to see if I had any additional questions. I would strongly recommend David to any organization that is seeking to leverage social media but does not know where to begin.

Jim Price – The Child’s Primary School

====================================

I have hired David to do a variety of projects over the last few years including Search Engine Optimization, video marketing, other internet marketing strategies that I don’t want my competitors to know about. The results have been great.

Traffic and sales are up, we rank either #1 or #2 or both on dozens of keywords on Google and we continue to grow our business. I have told David that whenever he develops a new Internet marketing strategy , if he recommends it, then I want to do it. Dave is reasonably priced, honest and over delivers on his commitments.

I highly recommend David to any online or “bricks and mortar” business looking to grow their business.

Phil Sandner – Easy Spa Parts

====================================

I run a traditional “bricks and mortar” store selling high-end products. With the slumping economy, we were looking for new ways to drive more traffic to our website and ultimately to our store.

Dave did a website makeover analysis and we were very impressed with what we learned. Not only did Dave give us some great tools to use, he also showed us what our competition was doing right and wrong and how we could use that to our advantage.

He even showed us how to tie in our website to some aspects of our offline prospect follow up program to help close more sales. The website makeover analysis was definitely worth getting!

Tae B. – Spa Retailer

====================================

I Highly Recommend Street Smart Sales and Marketing for Any Web Based Business; It Was Worth the Investment.

The website makeover analysis that David did for our company was extremely useful and thorough. It provided us with concise thought-out suggestions that were specific to our particular website. There were many things that I would have never considered had it not been brought to our attention by David.

He answered all of our questions, and presented us with an excellent presentation outlining everything. I highly recommend Street Smart Sales and Marketing for any web based business; it was worth the investment.

Audrey C. – Bridal Accessories

====================================

Thank you so much for the website makeover analysis. The in depth information you provided was excellent. The suggestions you made for on-site search engine optimization were very helpful. In addition, you going over our website stats was very helpful.

The great thing is that much of what David suggested, were things we could do ourselves in a very short time. We have already implemented many of the suggestions and are already seeing the results. Even our customers have complimented on the new look and feel of the site.

Thanks again and would indeed recommend your makeover to other businesses.
