Firenza stone - Elevating Countertop Marketing From Stone Foundations to Digital Conversions

Unearthing the Bedrock: Firenza Stone's Legacy

Firenza Stone, a fourth-generation family-owned business, has a rich history rooted in the province of Molise, Italy. Today, it stands as a leading home improvement brand in Eastlake, Ohio, offering a luxurious range of granite, marble, and engineered stone for countertops, flooring, cabinetry, and more.

Firenza Stone’s commitment to excellence is reflected not only in the materials they use but also in the service provided by their talented team. Their expertise in cutting, carving, and polishing stone surfaces has allowed them to create stunning renovations and remodels for their customers.

Crafting the Blueprint: Milia Marketing's Strategic Approach

Carving Out Success: Highlighting Specific Campaigns

Milia Marketing has spearheaded numerous successful marketing campaigns and initiatives across multiple platforms for Firenza Stone. Here are a few highlights:

Google Search Ads

We've implemented a variety of strategies, including a branded campaign for brand protection, and promoting Firenza Stone's service or product offerings. The branded campaign is a low-cost solution that helps protect Firenza Stone's brand from competitors and allows us to control the messaging.

Google Display Ads

We've created audiences based on existing customer lists and implemented remarketing strategies to re-engage site visitors and past customers. These strategies have been particularly effective in retargeting potential customers at different stages of the sales funnel.

A) we target people in the affinity-market (a type of audience) i.e. who have long-term interest in the product for example, people who have great probability to remodel their house in a few months.

B) we target in-market (a type of audience) people through displays i.e. people who searched a product that Firenza Stone also offers, get served with display ads on YouTube and other Google-partnered sites.

Demographic and Behavioral Targeting

We identified key demographics such as age, gender, location, and purchasing behaviors to ensure our ads reached the most relevant audience. By understanding the typical Firenza Stone customer, we were able to tailor our campaigns to resonate with those most likely to convert.

Facebook Ads

We've utilized carousel ads to showcase new inventory, lead ads to streamline the process of collecting contact information, and video ads to engage viewers and track their viewing duration for retargeting purposes.

Instagram Ads

We've leveraged both newsfeed and story ads to reach a wider audience and promote Firenza Stone's offerings in a visually appealing way.

YouTube Ads

We've used a mix of skippable in-stream ads, non-skippable in-stream ads, and in-feed video ads to capture the attention of viewers and promote Firenza Stone's brand and offerings.

Lookalike Audiences

We've leveraged lookalike audiences to reach new people who are likely to be interested in Firenza Stone because they share similar characteristics to existing customers. This strategy has been instrumental in expanding Firenza Stone's customer base.

Lead Form Widget

We added a Lead Form widget to the website with three main goals:

  • Generate more leads using strategically placed and optimized lead forms.
  • Increase response rates with page-specific lead forms. We created one general lead form for the entire site, and five page-specific lead forms for each of the service pages. The page-specific lead forms have initial engagement messages related to the topic of the page to increase response rates through relevancy.
  • Improve lead quality to help with the sales process later. By asking the right questions early on, we can make the sales process more efficient later.

Reputation Management

became a cornerstone of our strategy for Firenza Stone. Through proactive engagement with customers and a streamlined feedback process, we significantly amplified the number of positive reviews across various platforms. This surge not only elevated their brand image but also solidified Firenza Stone's position as a trusted leader in the countertop and remodeling industry.

These campaigns have been instrumental in expanding Firenza Stone’s reach to areas including greater Cleveland, Akron, Canton South, Northern Columbus, Erie, PA, and Sandusky. Through our strategic and targeted efforts, we’ve been able to generate more leads, increase response rates, and improve lead quality for Firenza Stone.

Local SEO: Making Your Mark in the Neighborhood

In the world of countertops and remodeling, local visibility is paramount. Imagine a homeowner, eager to revamp their kitchen, typing “Countertops Near Me” into Google. With our strategic Local SEO efforts, Firenza Stone is positioned right where they need to be: at the top of those search results.

Moreover, when potential clients seek answers to questions like “How Much Should My Kitchen Remodel Cost,” Firenza Stone emerges as a beacon of knowledge and expertise.

To achieve this, we began with a comprehensive SEO audit, diving deep to understand:

This audit’s primary goal was to enhance Firenza Stone’s “local exposure,” ensuring that when local clients think of countertops and remodeling, Firenza Stone is the first name that comes to mind.

Crafting a Solid Partnership: The Milia Marketing and Firenza Stone Relationship

Our relationship with Firenza Stone goes beyond the typical client-agency dynamic. Since 2017, we’ve been working closely with Firenza Stone, meeting regularly at their showroom in Cleveland, Ohio, to review marketing performance reports and brainstorm new ideas and recommendations.

This close proximity and long-term partnership have fostered a deep level of trust, with Firenza Stone entrusting us to lead and steer all marketing decisions and initiatives. Our dedication to long-term client partnerships is reflected in our strong client retention rate.

Chiseling Through Challenges: Overcoming Obstacles

Firenza Stone faced significant challenges with their previous agency. The quality and quantity of leads they were receiving were far from satisfactory. They were left in the dark with inconsistent reporting and an unclear ROI. The communication and strategies by the former agency were lacking, leaving Firenza Stone feeling unsupported and unsure of their marketing direction.

Moreover, Firenza Stone was struggling to carve out a strong online presence in a competitive industry. They needed a partner who could not only understand their unique needs as a countertop/fabricating company but also translate these needs into a successful digital marketing strategy.

Milia Marketing stepped in to deliver easy-to-read marketing reports, review these with the client, and show a direct impact on their marketing by consistently tracking phone calls, walk-ins, and form submissions. We provided the clarity and strategic direction that Firenza Stone was missing.
