We teamed up earlier this month with fellow Greater Birmingham Chambers of Commerce member, BMS Corporate Ltd, to help them build their online presence and generate business on the web after their negative experience with another online marketing firm. Not only did we do a fantastic job for them (if we do say so ourselves!) but they have returned the favour by way of referring valuable business opportunities our way.
Based a stones-throw away from us in St Pauls Square, British Military Security Corporate Ltd are event security specialists, providing event and venue security, close protection, manned guarding and surveillance services for high profile clients. Their clients include The NEC, O2 Arena, Liverpool Echo Arena, Glastonbury festivals and they are the preferred security partner for British Athletics. We looked to take their prestige and experience and harness it in an online format to help boost their client base even further.
Our Head of SEO, Simon Foster, said “They needed urgent help. We built them a completely new website and it was live in a little over a week. We have the experience and we can respond fast.
“It was a pleasure to work with BMS Corporate Ltd. The website had to represent the business in the right way as a professional operation with a good reputation for delivering their services.
“BMS Corporate Ltd have already recommended us to a number of their associates which just shows that if you do a good job and deliver the best results for other Chambers members the word does spread quickly.”
Bruce Thomas, of BMS Corporate Ltd, said: “We approached Soar Online with some anxiety given our previous unsatisfactory experience of the web sector.
“But they did the business for us, it is a great site and we are very happy.
“Soar Online has won the contract with us, we are introducing them to our contacts, and already their hard work is paying off as our enquiries rise, a win-win situation.
“We are so pleased to work with a fellow Chambers member who is as professional as we are.”
It just goes to show that word of mouth is an extremely powerful marketing tool that remains relevant no matter how the online landscape adapts and changes. Through our introduction to BMS Corporate Ltd alone, we have seen a number of new, highly valuable clients by way of referral.
