Local Internet Marketing | OrangeSoda

Has anyone used before? I called them today to talk about advertising and stuff. They said it takes about 3 months to really start seeing results. However is cost $100 a month for a guaranteed 40 clicks which seems extremely pricey. I guess they have pro's who run all the campaigns for you and test the best keywords for getting you traffic.

Any success stories from people here on WF?

    40 clicks or 40 sales?

    40 clicks has to be a joke for $100?

      I'm running a special right now for 40 clicks at $50, that's a 50% savings.

      But wait, there's more!

      Act now & we'll double the offer at 80 clicks for a one time payment of $50!

      That's double the clicks for half the suggested retail price!

        You're so Billy Mays! haha

        Thats 40 clicks from PPC right? Orange Soda is very reputable but anyone here will tell you it is not that hard to run local campaigns for yourself. Guess it depends how long term your goal is. If you just wanted to get some volume in for a little while maybe their program is good for you. However long term would probably be best and in that case you may as well learn how to run a campaign.

        If it is for SEO then its for local and that is why they said about 3 months, either way its a bit confusing and you may as well do it yourself. Plenty of guides online.

      Save your money and the heartburn. That's all I can to say about that without getting into hardcore bashing.

      I've been up against them several times in the seo dept, my kids do better than they do.

      They do have the local market saturated in the Chicago area because they are backed by the major yellow pages up there. btw...they only do local.

    really love their design just enough more than my own local SEO site to keep me up all night tweaking my design LOL

    You're in a marketing forum filled with marketers, we wouldn't really be good marketers if we needed to use another's marketing company would we LOL

    I'm getting you're trying to get local traffic to an offline businesses website? 40 clicks a month sounds right depending on the market and size of your city. Plus assuming the keywords are very targeted towards consumer intent.

    You can do everything they will do yourself for $12 a month based on $0.30 per click. Not really hard and google gives you all the help/walk-through you need to get it going. Just start small and work your way up.

    More personally involved you are with the marketing of your company the better anyways. If you try it and still decide to hire an out of house company, you will at least have your own ability to compare theirs too.
