Building on its founder’s 15 years of experience, V-Max Plumbing provides a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing services, including hydro jetting, reverse osmosis water systems, trenchless sewer repair, sewer camera inspection, and 24/7 emergency services.
The Seal Beach, CA company boasts a 5.0 rating on Yelp based on more than 100 reviews, and it has an extensive list of satisfied customers who generate referrals. “We’re genuinely transparent and honest, not pushy,” says owner Ernesto Altamirano. “We do great quality work at good prices. We give clients options, a, b, and c, and we educate them so they know what they’re getting.”
Wanting to generate more leads to help the company expand, Ernesto ended up choosing Kris Gragson and GK Media. Why? “Kris is just very approachable,” says Ernesto. “You trust him because he’s a good person, a solid guy, and he simplifies things, doesn’t geek out. He understands me as a person and my goals”.
“Kris said it would take six months,” says Ernesto. “And the months went by, and the results were there.” GK Media optimized the V-Max website to better generate organic traffic from local searches. Then it implemented a Google AdWords Pay-Per-Click campaign which it refined over time to identify critical keywords that yielded quality leads at an affordable cost. . .
The Result: On-Demand Growth
“Due to Kris’ efforts, we’ve had exponential growth,” says Ernesto. “Anytime I want more work, I just call him to get more work. Google ads are awesome, along with Google organic traffic”. He adds, “I haven’t had to spend a dime on ads for 30 days. I’m booked solid for a month. If I hired a guy today, I’d just make a phone call, and I’d have work coming in like crazy.”
Ernesto and Kris enjoy an excellent working relationship, and they have become friends. Says Ernesto, ““He’s a guy you like and trust.”
