Atlasphere provides full-service accounting to small businesses that have a growth-oriented mindset, love technology and are interested in a long-term partnership.


Marketing goals

  • Build credibility as an expert provider of cloud technology and accounting

  • Pique potential client interest and drive website traffic

Actions and results

  • Develop videos to answer frequently asked client questions in a way that’s both informative and convey Atlasphere’s unique culture

  • Experiment with videos posted across our website and social channels; measure effectiveness

“We started developing videos to answer frequently asked client questions in a way that’s both informative and shows off Atlasphere’s unique culture. And posting them on social media was another way to show off our personality. But it’s hard to track the ROI of the videos or social media advertising as a stand alone activity. However, we are clear that the videos drive traffic to our website and boost its SEO. Also, many clients have talked about the videos on intake calls so we know that they are getting viewed, and that folks enjoy them.”

Insights

“Be on the lookout for positive, unintended consequences.”
