Grand Openings Garage Door Case Study

With 7,900+ checkins and more than 350 reviews on its website, the company has more than 779 number one positions (an 11,000% increase!) for keywords that get them conversions.

The Background

Grand Openings Garage Door is a locally owned and operated, full service garage door repair, replacement and installation company that services the areas in and around Raleigh, NC. The company proudly offers affordable, trustworthy and professional garage door services performed by friendly, well-trained, experienced technicians.

The Problem

Before beginning to use Nearby Now in early 2013, Grand Openings had successfully generated many, many reviews on Angieslist. As that happened, the company became more and more locked into agreement after agreement with Angieslist, each of which came with continuously increasing costs. The company owner felt this trend was unsustainable over the long term. Embracing the review concept, he set out to find an alternative review solution.

The Solution

When the owner of Grand Openings realized the Nearby Now would effectively transform his company website into an Raleigh NC metro area garage door repair review engine that could compete with Angies List – he looked forward to forging his own path to success. He is skilled at the work he does as well as building goodwill through good customer relationships.

The Results

For five years, Grand Openings has parlayed its good customer relationships into more than 350 reviews and 7,900 checkins. The result is dynamic content and real reviews on his website, which has skyrocketed his rankings for valuable keywords in his local areas.

In November 2012, Grand Openings Garage Door’s website had only 7 number one placements on Google. Today, thanks to steadily using Nearby Now during that time, he has 779 number one placements. His business is busier than ever and he no longer solely relies on Angie’s List for his leads.

Here’s a snapshot of the improvements and a few keyword examples from November 13, 2012 to March 13, 2018:
