Projects Plus Marketing Client Testimonials
Supportive, Loyal, and Trustworthy
I was introduced to Michelle of Projects Plus Marketing in 2012 by another franchisee while inquiring how to generate additional leads through SEO. I hired Michelle after our very first phone conversation and she has been a pleasure to work with ever since. Michelle is the proverbial consummate professional-hard working, diligent, extremely responsive to phone calls and emails, supportive, loyal, and trustworthy. I know the word trustworthy gets thrown around a lot, but I mention it because in the internet business it’s hard to know if you’re getting what you pay for. However, with Michelle, you’ll get everything she promises and a whole lot more and at a reasonable cost. If you need some hand-holding through the whole process of SEO as I did and want your organic listings ranking at or near the top of the first page in internet searches, look no further than Michelle and her company.
2019 Update: John went independent of the franchise and launched his own home improvement company. He says with Michelle and her team at his side, the first year's revenue of his new start-up was his best year ever over all the 20 years he owned the franchise.

Dedicated, Hard-working, Honest, and Caring
Michelle and her company, Projects Plus, were recommended to me by an industry consultant. And after working with Michelle for over 7 years, I can still tell you it was a very good recommendation. It took some time, but the leads come in consistently, and I don't do any other marketing except the services she offers (though she'd prefer I diversify my marketing mix). I have found Michelle to be consistently dedicated, hard-working, honest, and caring. In addition, she has the skills, knowledge, and field experience unlike any other marketer I've come across to help you reach your marketing goals. Any business would be fortunate to have Michelle and her team on their side.

Within a Few Months, the Phone Started Ringing!
Michelle has been doing my SEO for years now. Prior to her coming on board, my local listings (Google, Yahoo, Yelp, Bing etc.) was a mess. I wasn’t coming up on searches for painters in Minneapolis and overall was a little discouraged about internet marketing. I met Michelle through a friend who has a business in Minneapolis and he spoke highly of her skill. I can only report now how right he was! Immediately, she got my listings fixed and maximized. She made changes to my website, worked more of her magic, and within a few months, the phone started ringing with organic internet leads. It takes a while for all the changes to have a positive effect, but it has only gotten busier. SEO also requires constant attention because the internet landscape changes daily. I would highly recommend Michelle and her team to take marketing off your plate. None of us have enough time or expertise to get this right!

A Trusted Advisor and Strong Advocate
I have worked with Michelle and her team for many years on a variety of projects, and two different home service businesses, and I highly recommend her services. As a small business owner, Michelle has become an extension of my team – a trusted advisor to me and strong advocate for my marketing goals. She offers a broad range of services and her customized approach is thoughtful, detailed, and relevant. Unlike a big "plug and play" approach, she can customize a plan that fits your needs and budget. If you’re considering any of the services that they offer, I unequivocally recommend Michelle and Projects Plus Marketing.

Overwhelmed with New Business
We signed up for local internet marketing with Projects Plus many years ago (2008) and were overwhelmed with new business. We cancelled our ad in the yellow pages of the phone book as we realized that internet searches were replacing the phone book as the new way to advertise. We continue to have a valuable, highly effective relationship with Projects Plus (as of 2022). In fact, we recently asked Michelle if she could slow things down a little. Projects Plus is a company that you can trust.

I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone in search of the best online marketing for contractors. Choose Projects Plus, and your marketing problems are solved as long as you're in business.

Search Engine Optimization has Quickly Paid Off
As a new franchisee, we are indebted to Michelle for her guidance regarding the nuances of setting up an online presence for rankings. Michelle's expertise in search engine optimization has quickly paid off with ever-increasing organic leads in our designated service area. In addition, she always goes above and beyond by providing her insight on how to best combine online and traditional marketing to ensure the success of her clients. Launching a new business is full of unknowns. Having Michelle and her team as partners in my success took my marketing concerns completely off the table. Much respect and gratitude, Michelle!

There is No Comparison. She has No Competition!
Michelle at Projects Plus helped me launch my business in 2008, has partnered with me for more than ten years now, and I'm still going strong. I've been solicited by many other marketing companies, but I learned what I should expect. Those salespeople can't fool me anymore. There is no comparison, she has no competition - Michelle is the best in the industry. Your business becomes her business, she's got your back, and your best interest at heart always. She is constantly educating herself to keep up with the changing times and keep you on top. Great pricing, best value, amazing expertise, caring, honest, over the top dedication. Hire Projects Plus!

I Have One Regret. Not Finding Her Sooner!
I have been in the painting industry since the early 90s. In this time, I have worked with numerous advertising/marketing companies attempting to put my company in front of potential customers. Early on, my marketing strategy was very simple - send direct mail, knock on doors, or put up lawn signs - and the leads were there. These days the customer base is much more complex. This is where Michelle and her team come in. I was very direct with Michelle in our early conversations stating that I am NOT tech savvy nor do I desire to be so! I have a very busy schedule, and I needed someone that I trusted and felt comfortable with to handle my online presence without breaking the bank. Michelle filled the order! Her low-key friendly approach saddled with her mind-bending knowledge of how things work online has kept my company at the top of internet search results in my production areas for years. I could not be more content with my decision to work with Projects Plus. However, I do have one regret. Not finding her sooner!

Invested in All of Her Clients' Success
I'm often contacted by prospective owners for 'validation' calls about being a business owner. They have a range of questions most often centered on two topics: crews and marketing. Well, Michelle can't help with crews (I wish she could) but what she can help with is marketing. She was my first source for all things internet when I opened my franchise. She was so very patient and offered extensive explanations of what she was doing for me. Being a consumer on one side of Google is totally different than being a business owner on the other side of it. She helped me understand PPC, SEO, local listings, and organic searches. I didn't necessarily want to know this much about the internet, but it's such an important part of my business and my yearly marketing spend that it was essential that I get a handle on it. Michelle is very thorough, knowledgeable, up on the latest Google updates, and invested in all of her clients' success. I cannot recommend her enough if you want to start out of the gate with a rock solid internet presence.

Most Positive Marketing Tool I Have Used
Michelle and Projects Plus has been the most positive marketing tool I have used in my business by far. She has enhanced my business immensely with SEO to give me higher rankings and many more leads. Her attention to detail and customized service has been a tremendous advantage and I really enjoy the personalized service. She has been a great asset to my business for years.
Louis - San Antonio, Texas
Very Personalized Approach
I switched to Michelle from another company, and the service she provides far exceeds what I was getting, for a lot less. She takes the time to really understand your needs and works diligently with a very personalized approach. I highly recommend Projects Plus Marketing to any contractor who needs marketing expertise, wants more leads, a loyal ally, and a trusted advisor.
Sherry - Seminole, Florida
She Doesn't Stop with Just "Good Enough"
I would highly recommend Projects Plus Marketing. After working with another company, we were referred to Michelle. The difference was night and day. Michelle has the personal touch I appreciate. She takes the time to meet with me personally on the phone and clarify all of the work being done. I could see the results of her work right away. Previously, the company we used communicated about billing, but I did not see the changes/updates we needed for months. Michelle works hard for me. I see that she is going the extra mile. She doesn't stop with just "good enough". She goes deeper and works on all the aspects of your marketing and gets results.

An Important Part of My Strong Revenue Growth
I strongly encourage seasoned veterans and new business owners alike to avail themselves of the services offered by Michelle of Projects Plus. Unlike most vendors who are quick to fade into the background after the deal, Michelle plays a role more like a partner who assists you in setting up a strong internet presence, a foundation for rankings and visibility for organic leads, that brings in consistent leads. Her efforts have played an important part in my strong revenue growth, and I don't have to worry about the marketing side of my business. I highly recommend Projects Plus.

Very Noticeable Improvement in Leads!
Hi, Michelle. I just wanted to let you know that since you have started managing my Internet presence and SEO, I have seen a VERY noticeable improvement in leads through our website and through searches on Google, Yelp, and several others that I didn't even know about! It is remarkable how effective your work has been when I was paying the same thing to another service and getting nothing – for nearly a year with them! Thanks for your efforts, Michelle. It is paying off for me! The internet went from being a source of a few leads to being my leading source!
Mike - Yorkville, Illinois
Still the Strong Partner I Need After a Decade
It's been over a decade since I started working with Michelle, so it's time to update my review. After a couple of years working with her, I gave her high accolades for the incredible results she produced. I can say that, all these years later, she is still the strong partner I need to ensure my business is visible to prospective customers, my internet presence looks great, and I'm making good decisions where marketing is concerned. Michelle is a problem-solver, an exceptional marketer, and ferociously loyal. You can't go wrong hiring Projects Plus.

Boosts Revenue Right from the Beginning
Michelle provides full marketing support with professionalism, expertise, and customer service at its best. Projects Plus services produce results! Michelle took care of helping me launch my business, set up all my marketing logistics/strategies quickly and effectively, and brought in the leads. As a new business, this a must to boost revenue right from the beginning. I've been solicited by other marketing companies, I've listened to what they have to say, and looked at their offerings. But Michelle trained me well. I know what they should be doing and why. Projects Plus provides exceptional value for the money. But you're not just a monthly invoice - you're her pride and responsibility, and she won't let you down.

Honest, Ethical, and Responsive
The Projects Plus team is amazing. We have worked with them on numerous projects over many years, and love the fact that they are very honest, ethical, and responsive to your needs. That is so hard to find in the marketing industry, so we were thrilled to find Michelle. She is a partner we completely trust to do what's best for us.
Evelyn - Chandler, Arizona
Now I Can Confidently Focus Attention on Other Areas of My Business
It's important to get off to a quick start as you open any new business. In the painting business, one of your least expensive source of leads is the internet. Michelle and Projects Plus becomes a key partner, not just a vendor. She takes time to understand my business and make sure we are presenting ourselves in the best light. She keeps her finger on the pulse of the ever-changing search/listing/reviews world and makes sure that we are adjusting to those changes on the fly. With Michelle on my team, I get the leads I need and can confidently focus my attention on other areas of my business.
