This is the first in our series of client spotlight blogs. In these blogs, we’re going to highlight the client, how we’ve worked together, and the results they’ve seen since working with Alyssa Gay Consulting.
Today, we’re going to look at Two Stories Media. Two Stories Media is a full-service production company based in St. Petersburg, Florida. They specialize in photography and videography for businesses, brands, and events.
I started working with Kevin Echemendia of Two Stories Media in 2017. We had a consult and I then went into the research, audit, and strategy phase. During this phase, I research your company and industry, learn your brand voice, and review what you’ve been doing for social media and digital marketing. I then provide you with an audit outlining this along with a custom strategy to begin implementing. Thank you to Kevin for taking the time to chat and answer the following questions!
QUESTION: HAS ALYSSA GAY CONSULTING MET OR EXCEEDED YOUR SOCIAL MEDIA & DIGITAL MARKETING GOALS?
Kevin: “She has exceeded all goals and expectations. When we began we had a minor social media presence with absolutely no consistency. Since she has begun our posts are regular and have a consistent theme/look. Because of that our visibility has increased, our engagement has never been higher and most importantly potential clients can review our work quicker and easier.”
Initially, we focused on crafting social media and blog posts. Two Stories then went through a full website redesign, which I helped manage. From there, we dove into search engine optimization (SEO), website content management, traditional marketing, reputation management, all while continuing with social media management and blog posts.
QUESTION: HOW HAS ALYSSA GAY CONSULTING POSITIVELY IMPACTED YOUR BUSINESS?
Kevin: “Our engagement on social media and through our website has increased. Our first page rankings on Google have gone to 1 out of 16 to 9 out of 16 possible listings. Also, our inquiries nearly have quadrupled throughout the last 6 months.”
Since implementing the strategy that Alyssa Gay Consulting created, Two Stories Media has seen substantial growth. This has occurred via social media engagement, inquiries, bookings, website traffic, and their Google search rankings!
QUESTION: WHAT HAS BEEN YOUR FAVORITE PART OR THE BEST PART ABOUT USING ALYSSA GAY CONSULTING?
“The best part is no longer having to worry about social media. This was an element we technically could accomplish ourselves but having Alyssa meant our time could be better spent building the business, going to meetings and not constantly worrying about the changing landscape of social media,” said Kevin Echemendia.
By having Alyssa Gay Consulting managing their social media and digital marketing strategy and presence, Two Stories Media has the time to focus on what they do best – their productions and business.
QUESTION: HOW HAS ALYSSA GAY CONSULTING ADAPTED WITH YOUR BUSINESS NEEDS/CHALLENGES?
Kevin: “We struggled to gain visibility over local competition. Alyssa constantly shifts her thinking to make that happen while our services continue to grow, that way when a potential client sees us we can meet or exceed their expectations.”
Social media and digital marketing are always changing. Whether it’s best practices, times to post for maximum engagement, or algorithms, it’s a lot to keep up with – and your business/industry is also changing, too.
By providing monthly reporting, we are constantly monitoring your strategy and business to see what’s working and what isn’t. This allows us to draw conclusions and alter your strategy according to audience behavior and platform changes.
QUESTION: HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR EXPERIENCE WORKING WITH ALYSSA GAY CONSULTING?
Kevin: “The experience has been outstanding, Alyssa helps forward our business and take on responsibilities that either we cannot do or do not know how to do. Our business continues to grow in part because of Alyssa. It’s an easy decision to continue to work with her.”
Overall, since working with Alyssa Gay Consulting, Two Stories Media has seen an increase in website traffic, social media engagement, brand recognition & consistency, and inquiries & bookings.
“If you’re thinking of working with Alyssa, do it. If you are currently in the research phase or have been considering your options just help yourself, help your business, and move forward with Alyssa. It was an easy decision for us but I know that won’t be the case for everyone. However, having Alyssa has consistently proven to be a good decision, month after month.”
Cheers to you, Two Stories Media! We’re so excited for the success you’ve seen so far & cannot wait to celebrate more in the future!
