It was already October when the owners of Greenwich Pool Service approached us with the idea to sell kiln dried firewood strictly through the Web as a means to offset their Summer business. Fortunately, it has been a warm start to autumn and because their target market for firewood was the same as for pool services, coming late to the game had little or no impact. Still, we had to design a logo and build an ecommerce website in record time (we opted to use Google Checkout for the ecommerce). Within two weeks Fire It Up Firewood was online and open for business!

To help spread the word, we did an email and a direct mail invitation to the company’s existing customers as well as an ongoing Google AdWords Pay-Per-Click (PPC) campaign that has already yielded high conversion rates. In addition, our smart approach to organic Search Engine Optimization (SEO) has placed Fire It Up Firewood at the top of search engine results pages for highly coveted key phrases like kiln dried firewood and firewood delivery within a week of launch. Needless to say, we hit this one out of the park and our client was pretty impressed. We aim to impress.
