Meeting John Claypool, CEO of Accuracy Plus California

I was recommended to John Claypool, who was looking for a digital marketing consultant by another business owner who I worked with a long time ago. 

John Claypool was an expert and certified Pest & Termite Control Exterminator for over 20 years and operating in the pest and termite control business in Orange and Los Angeles county since 1994. He established Accuracy Plus California.

John was a very humble man, and his customer-centric business approach had made him very popular in the pest and termite control business. He operated his company in the city of Brea and Los Angeles for over 20 years. 

His company, Accuracy Plus, was performing very well from the year 2000 until 2014. His main business leads came from his two websites on the first page of Google on major keywords search. 

Unfortunately, his SEO technicians used the “BLACK HAT TECHNIQUES,” as a result, Google penalized both of the sites of Orange County and Los Angeles in 2015 as they introduced new algorithms PANDA & PENGUINS. 

His business had diminished, and he sought digital solutions.  His colleague recommended my services, and on the day John was considering filing bankruptcy he contacted me.

Starting with John: 

I carefully listened to his problem and suggested he did not need to file bankruptcy. It took 3 to 4 days to perform my research and analyze the pest industry market, customer segmentation, service categories, other competitors’ websites promoting their services, and how they created a marketing pitch.  He provided me with the primary 45 keywords that he wanted to optimize and also run pay-per-click ad campaigns he was targeting.   

I researched for three or four days and found out that- 

  • The websites are lacking the Google algorithms to be indexed as a healthy website. 
  • The SEO Description, Title, Keywords were not correct; thus, it fell into Keyword Spamming.
  • The content was very disorganized and failed to create a buyer’s persona. 
  • Pictures were very old; there was no photo gallery showcasing the work. 
  • No Video Gallery addressing the issues on pests or termites
  • The websites didn't follow a flow or an organized structure. 
  • No Sitemaps 
  • No blogs

So I created a comprehensive report. He was very impressed with my strategic plan. He hired me as his marketing strategist and analyst to rebuild and restructure his company's entire digital marketing efforts following all Google Algorithms. 

I worked relentlessly for six months to build the foundation for his digital marketing efforts. So we could keep making it as days go by.

What Our Client says about this project

It was a pleasure to work with Sabina. Sabina showed a significant amount of expertise in developing SEO and online marketing strategies for the five sites. Both websites were black-listed by Google as my previous technicians used black hat techniques. My website was nowhere on Google search. I was about to file for bankruptcy. I had zero leads for months before I met her. Sabina came in and right away started recovering the site with her technical skills and strategy. Within three months both sites showed up on Google organic search. The result was phenomenal. My main essential website targeting Orange County and Los Angeles came on the first page of Google, with at least 20 keywords within one year increasing 200% in sales. She possesses terrific problem-solving skills and also is an excellent marketing researcher. She learned all the legal complaints, product concepts, target customers, and nature of my industry very quickly. She gathered all the data, recreating marketing and SEO techniques as my business grew. She always discussed her plans with me and prioritized my concerns and feedback. Her communication ability was outstanding. When I needed to talk, she was available for me. She has shown profound collaboration in a team environment and brainstorming ideas. And most of all, compared to her expertise, she is very affordable and fun to work with. I look forward to working with her in the coming years to grow my business more. It has been a pleasure working with her.

God Bless her!
