"I am writing to you because I am so pleased with the results of our working with Mannix. Every part of our experience has been positive, from the very first contact with Valerie to the results of our being on your web site. When Legacy signed up for Saratoga.com, Albany.com, Lake George.com and Adirondack.net, we were hoping to increase our local exposure, and change our marketing from trade shows to web based. It was one of the best marketing moves we ever made! As a result of being on these sites the traffic at our web site has increased beyond our expectations. Our Business web site went from page 10 or more to the first page when searching for timber frames in NY! We are now are getting a majority of the inquiry calls from people who saw our web site and want more information.
Our business is doing very well this year; it's looking like we may even have our best year ever in 2009. And almost all of the jobs we are getting are local, which is a first. I believe our advertising with Mannix has been a major reason for this success. People are now doing so much of their research and shopping on line, and in an economy where people are thinking longer and doing more research before making major purchases, the key is having a presence on the web and being easy to find. Mannix does a fabulous job helping our company be more visible.
I thank you for everything, our business has definitely increased as a result of working with you."
