Partner Profile: INTEK Cleaning & Restoration


How Our 5-Year Partnership Has Transformed INTEK

When was the last time you stuck with a digital marketing agency for five years or more?

Sadly, switching agencies every year or two has become the norm for many businesses. Whether the work didn’t deliver results, the staff didn’t respect your time or budget, or the grass was just greener somewhere else, you might have found yourself “agency hopping” in search of “the one.”

We understand the temptation, but we also know the value of a long-term relationship. In fact, we like to call 9 Clouds a partner rather than a vendor because we truly seek to come alongside your business and help solve your challenges — whatever they are.

We’ve been working with INTEK Cleaning & Restoration since July 2015. Over the years, 9 Clouds has become a trusted ally for the INTEK team, helping them streamline their digital marketing and establish themselves as an expert in their field.

 “9 Clouds keeps us at the forefront online. It’s a competitive market out there, and it’s good to know we have a team keeping us relevant.”

– Todd Lubenow, Director of Business Development, INTEK

How We’ve Helped INTEK Show Up Online & Boost ROI

As part of INTEK’s digital marketing package with 9 Clouds, we provide search engine optimization (SEO) services that include blog posts, landing pages, and technical improvements to the website.

Over the years, we’ve written hundreds of informational blog posts on a variety of cleaning- and restoration-related topics. These posts not only educate local homeowners, but also help INTEK show up higher in search results.

It’s fair to say that, by now, INTEK has pretty much dominated Google. Along with getting some coveted featured snippets, INTEK’s organic web traffic has skyrocketed, with a 500% increase in unique monthly visitors over a five-year period.

To drive even more traffic to the INTEK website, 9 Clouds posts creative content on social media sites like Pinterest and runs targeted digital ads on platforms like Facebook, Google, and Bing. These ads are extremely effective, costing an average of just $0.40 per click in 2020.

Generating clicks doesn’t matter, though, if those clicks don’t translate to sales. Fortunately, INTEK has seen a great return on investment (ROI) since working with 9 Clouds.

Director of business development Todd Lubenow says, “With how busy we all are, it’s hard to stay on top of social media and SEO. We trust 9 Clouds knows what’s happening and is helping get us the best return on investment.”

We love knowing we’re providing positive ROI. Even more than that, we love knowing we’re making our clients’ lives easier.

Todd says he appreciates “the one-on-one personal contact” and “having a consistent person to review things with us and stay on top of our opportunities.” He’s talking about his account manager, Jenny Lockhart, who has been his main point of contact for the past five years.

Talk about client longevity!

“Honestly, it’s nice to have one less thing to worry about, so we can focus on the business.”
