The Year In Review
As Local Web Experts gets ready to decorate the tree and see in the New Year in style, we’d like to share our achievements for 2016. Thanks to our amazing clients and the dedicated efforts of our staff, we’ve gone from strength to strength this year helping us achieve a great outlook for 2017.
“With growth comes knowledge, so we’ve learned a lot this year,” says Local Web Experts director Dan Horne. “Our stellar success has humbled us, as well as driven us to continue to strive for success for our clients. These are exciting times that lead us into 2017 with so many positives.”
Premier Google Partnership
Being awarded a Google Premier Partnership was a feather in the LWE cap early on in 2016, while reaching the top 10 for two consecutive quarters was the icing on the cake for client benefits. This means that the service clients have been receiving for AdWords is among the best in Australia.
New 24/7 Reporting Platform
With the launch of a fresh reporting platform, LWE has been able to offer clients round-the-clock premium management plans, which enable live access to view their campaigns in real time.
LWE Branded Product
Along with the new reporting platform, Local Web Experts developed its very own power-packed product called SEL (Search Engine Listings), which can help your business dominate the local online competition. A component of SEL is the valuable Online Review Platform, which enables you to weed out negative reviews about your business in order to see a clean slate of positive testimonials on Google’s front page. Please feel free to talk to our knowledgeable staff about how SEL can help your business.
The Drive To Go Further
“Not only have we employed four new staff members and have a 100% retention rate for the year,” says Horne, “we have implemented a positive and supportive office environment that attracts daily successes. This, combined with the new LWE signage on one company car, has helped give our business the fresh face it’s been looking for.”
Being awarded the Gold Coast Business Excellences Awards for top Emerging Business was an exciting time for directors Horne and Adam Boote, who accepted the award from Mayor Tom Tate in June this year. This was proof the business was on the right track for client ROI.
Greater Brand Awareness
Creating a Local Web Experts presence at Google events in Brisbane, Sydney and San Francisco has greatly helped bolster the LWE brand on the Gold Coast. This is also motivated by the business’s growth into South-East Asia, with new clients coming onboard from Singapore.
“Although this was only our first year being sighted at these global Google events, the response has been overwhelming,” says Boote. “We’ve had such an encouraging reaction from clients and competitors alike, with many discussions driving us forward with confidence towards our next achievements.”
In rounding up a momentous year of success, the team at Local Web Experts would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and safe festive season with your loved ones. We’ll be back in 2017, with much more to offer the digital advertising market.
