My task has been to edit (and occasionally write) the online copy for Raymond’s websites. I’ve worked with Raymond on a number of projects, and each time I have been impressed with his dedication to providing excellent service to his clients. He has an uncanny ability to think outside the box and explore—and create!—innovative online marketing strategies that enable his clients to expand their reach. He is well aware that if the audience doesn’t understand the message, then the entire effort is unsuccessful; hence he has hired me to ensure that his communications are both clear and concise. It has been a pleasure working with him on each project, and I recommend him to anyone seeking to implement new and creative business marketing strategies.

Another happy client: Car Salesman Charlie Clarke!

TO: Car dealers and salesmen

FROM: Raymond Gonzalez

RE: Web presence, lead generation, business development

Charlie Clarke is a 31 year seasoned veteran car salesman in the Saint Louis, MO region. He contacted us with a simple goal, to make his phones ring. He sells new and pre-owned vehicles and wanted a steady stream of car shoppers contacting him directly. What he asked for is exactly what we provided.

We provided him a tracked local phone number which rings directly to his mobile device/phone, sends text messages, voicemail and missed call notifications. This is all done in real-time, and connects the car shopper directly with him.

To generate these leads we utilize the most searched websites. We deliver his inventory directly to the client, and he gets the leads. In this instance, he works for a well known national chain. Chain being the keyword here… they keep him on one! Because of this, his corporate headquarters asked they not be represented in anyway during these campaigns. 

Included below is the first 10 day snapshot of his social media analytics report. They look GREAT! It also helps he is now receiving a steady stream of phone calls, text messages, voicemails, missed call notifications, web forms and emails directly from car shoppers within a 50 mile radius of his location.

He has also agreed to share his experience with other car dealers nationwide.
Interested? Call Charlie for a ‘real-time’ update on our services!

Did you know 20 percent of all emails are opened using iPhones?

By Alan Pearcy | Posted: June 21, 2012

Once upon a time, in the land of zero Gs, where Instant Messaging reigned supreme, there lived a boy without a cell phone—let alone one that was smart—who was happy to have a mere Hotmail account. 

Alas, time has passed and that same young lad has more email accounts now than he can remember passwords. As for the ones he does recall, he certainly has no shortage of devices and platforms on which to check them. 

And chances are, he’s checking those Living Social deals and New York Times headlines emails on his smartphone. That’s no fairy tale; it’s science. In the last six months (leading up to April), there’s been an 80 percent increase in the number of emails opened on a smartphone, 20 percent of which occurred on an iPhone—more than any desktop, webmail, or phone. 

That being said, email marketers will do themselves a solid by learning more about their progressively mobilized audience if they check out this infographic from Litmus and Column Five. Take it from me a boy who knows.
