While my website is doing “what it’s supposed to do” – it looks good, has lots of information and is easy to navigate – I’m still very impressed by the actual results.

SEO: Vic built my site so that we would rank highly for a number of relevant searches, and within a few days of going live, was on page one of Google for most of these. Less than a week after launching I got a waterfall landscaping project in Collingwood, which stemmed from someone searching for local landscapers with this specific expertise, finding our site, and seeing our work. Within a month, we’d secured a full pool landscaping job in Thornbury from someone who first visited our website. Another lead arrived this morning… they even filled out our project form.

With the website showcasing our work, even my business cards work harder now. We’re doing an indoor concrete pool – a large contract – thanks to a Grey-Bruce homeowner seeing my card and visiting my site. The site is still less than two months old!

The tone of the website, which comes across in the feature articles Vic wrote and the design and our photos, means that the calls we’re getting are from the right clientele – people with fine homes looking for large, quality landscaping projects.

I asked Vic Michener to design my website because the samples I’d seen of his work were all eye-catching and effective.

I’d been operating for four years with a do-it-yourself website that I could alter whenever I wanted. That worked for me for a while because I was trying to define how to market my unique services and I could try different things. But I ended up with a dense and technical website that wouldn’t appeal much to anyone, and I knew I needed a professional makeover.

Working with Vic was a treat because he understood my predicament; I wanted a site that would welcome people and guide them to the services they needed in a way that communicated plainly.

Vic took my dense prose and made it accessible. He gave me a banner with products displayed, random rotation of the testimonials I’ve collected, and a blog, so that I can carry on adding my own dense prose, for those who like such things.

SEO improves: When the site was published, I monitored its traffic carefully with Google Analytics (which Vic set up for me). It’s been a few months now and I can see that the site is working as it is meant to. My only interest is in the local regional market (Port Elgin to the Bruce Peninsula to Wasaga Beach – including Southampton, Owen Sound, Wiarton, Meaford, Markdale, Flesherton, Thornbury, Collingwood) and the site is designed to specifically emphasize the areas I serve, so foreign visitors who find me immediately bounce away. But those in my area, who are looking for services like these, find me on Google and end up spending several minutes and browsing several pages and then actually calling me. That never happened before.

Since I’ve had this site, I have stepped up marketing contacts with potential clients knowing that if they take the time to visit my website they will be mightily impressed. I can’t say enough to recommend My Favorite Marketer.

I came to Vic beyond frustrated after working with another website designer who couldn’t communicate, or even bother to understand my needs. This was an Owen Sound website company that largely monopolizes the area, in fact!

Given my previous experience with the “other” guy, and with a semi-completed website that really didn’t function well and wasn’t a positive reflection of my business and what it represents, I was skeptical and cautious.

After several physical meetings and telephone conversations with the “other” guy, I was never able to accomplish what I was able to with Vic in a couple of telephone conversations and emails. I had a telephone meeting with Vic, in which we discussed my vision for the website and my business. He took the time to understand my business’ needs, and how to make the site go to work for me. He put together a proposal for my review and executed it flawlessly, giving me a fully functional website that I’m able to update and maintain myself with ease. He redesigned sections of the site, added automatic functions, and wrote friendly descriptions of my business and my service. Vic created something that I could have only imagined!

SEO – “Number One in Google”: I can’t begin to thank Vic Michener, of, enough, for all that he has done for my business. Within a few weeks of the relaunched website, Vic took my business to Number One in Google’s search engine for “Owen Sound DJ”.

Thanks Vic!
