Maryland Agency Success Story – Jerry Nicklow

Having a credible backlink is huge for SEO, and the more content puts out there—they’re building credibility every year.
Published: June 20, 2023

Pasadena, MD

“The SEO benefit [of the Advantage subscription] is worth probably the price of admission alone. Having a credible backlink is huge for SEO, and the more content puts out there, they’re building the credibility every year – and you get millions of people coming to the site, which makes Google love it as well… It’s huge.”

“It more than covers the cost of it every year… And we’ve written some really good clients. The very first year we did it we wrote a $30,000 account that’s been with us for six years now – and it’s a great account. They refer us business, they keep growing… so it’s definitely worth it.”

“When you factor in not only the new business, but the stuff that’s rolling over year after year, it’s definitely been a success. And that’s on top of all the other benefits with the SEO and everything else we’ve talked about.”
