The Client

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dallas
Industry: Plumbing
Location: Dallas, Texas

Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dallas is a professional plumbing and drain cleaning company servicing Dallas, Texas and surrounding areas. The team at Mr. Rooter is licensed and insured, and handles a wide range of residential and commercial plumbing issues, including drain cleaning, sewer line repairs, leaking pipes, water line repairs, maintenance, plumbing installations, and more.

The Challenge

Low Return on Investment in a Competitive Market

Dallas is an extremely competitive plumbing market, and Mark from Mr. Rooter Plumbing of Dallas was not getting the results he was expecting with his current provider. He reached out to Matt from Digital Shift to see if we could help his current situation, as well as increase lead volume without having to spend more money on advertising and pay per click.

His primary goal was to lower his overall customer acquisition cost while improving the number of phone calls and leads.  Mark also wanted to increase organic (non-paid) drain and sewer leads, and needed a better way to measure the output of the work that was being done by his digital marketing partner each month.

The Solution

A Targeted Approach Focused on the Dallas Market

To further evaluate Mark's current situation, we conducted a local citation audit. A local citation audit looks at a business name, address, phone number and website (NAP+W) listing consistency online.

The consistency and accuracy of business information play a role in ranking locally.

Citation Audti Report Mr. Rooter Plumbing Of Dallas

After conducting a local SEO citation audit, we found a total of 1,606 citations:

  • Correct Citations: 296
  • Incorrect Citation: 173
  • Duplicate Citations: 1,137

The business listings were mismanaged and in addition to many duplicates, the wrong business name, old address, and wrong phone number were found. Since incorrect and duplicate citations hurt rankings and have a negative impact on SEO, starting the citation clean up to fix these issues was Digital Shift's top priority.

The Digital Shift team determined that the best approach was to fix the business listing issues, as well as to create a social media and content strategy and start an outreach link building campaign to acquire backlinks to increase authority in search engine results.
