Atlanta Rat and Squirrel is a wildlife control company with over five years of experience, specializing in the removal of nuisance animals from both residential and commercial structures. Owner Chris Portra got tired of wasting money on Google and recently chose to dedicate the majority of his marketing dollars to Kudzu by upgrading his Enhanced listing to a Featured listing and purchasing a digital solutions bronze package from Kudzu for five cities as well, which enables him to achieve page 1 ranking in organic local search results.
"I had been using Google, Yahoo, and Bing and having decent success, but then more competitors came on board and things became cutthroat," Portra explained. "Google had become very expensive, costing hundreds of dollars a day. At the end of the day, I'd have a handful of clicks, one call and no sales. Kudzu, on the other hand, gives me good, quality leads where customers have already made up their mind about me when they call. It is a much better, and more profitable, experience."
Immediately after Portra upgraded Atlanta Rat and Squirrel's advertising expenditure on Kudzu, he saw an increase in productive calls.
"I know for sure that Kudzu works, and that the calls I'm going to get are going to be better than the ones I might get from elsewhere. I also like that I have personal sales support at Kudzu helping me out, whereas I could never reach anyone at Google. It makes sense that I would spend the bulk of my marketing dollars with Kudzu," Portra stated.
