City Fence Summary

City Fence, Inc. was founded in Buffalo, NY, in 1978 by second generation fence professional John W “Jack” Hewson, and his sons (John and Reed) now run this family business. In early 2012, John Hewson approached 1stFlash to develop a new, search engine optimized, website that would help his company grow.

Web Marketing Strategy Developed By 1stFlash
The City Fence Web Marketing Strategy focused on targeting Residential and Commercial customers, based in the Western New York area, who are using the search engines to research/find products and services related to all kinds of fences for their property:

  • Vinyl/PVC Fences
  • Wooden Fences
  • Aluminum Fences
  • Chain Link Fences
  • Faux Rock & Composite Fences
  • Pool Fences & Dog Kennel Enclosures
  • Privacy & Security Fences
  • Sports Facility Fences…


Web Marketing Strategy

1stFlash worked with the owners of City Fence to develop a Search Engine Optimized (SEO’d) Website that would bring in e-mails and phone calls from targeted customers looking for the products and services that they can provide. SEO provides free Organic Web Traffic that does not require an ongoing budget for Pay-Per-Click services like Google Adwords. The City Fence Web Marketing Strategy document specified all aspects of the design and development of their new e-Business website, including all optimized content required for City Fence to be found by and to efficiently convert local online searchers.

e-Business Outcome

1stFlash Web Marketing Consultants offered us a completely different experience compared to the other website developers that we spoke with. Instead of talking about colors and website technology, their first focus was to guide us in defining our potential audience on the web. They showed us keyphrases and associated search volume. Then they worked with us to define the right content that our audience was searching for. They delivered on everything that they promised, our website quickly moved to the top page in a number of search engines and we have continued to receive highly targeted site visitors who actually contact us to do business. Thanks to 1stFlash, City Fence revenues have grown and our company is thriving. I would highly recommend 1stFlash to any business owner.
