A holistic digital marketing strategy was developed across display ads, paid social media marketing, paid search and organic search to maximize relevant website traffic that ultimately converted into new purchases for residential service. Through the use of custom reporting and analytics, The Digital Ring has been able to tie all of these efforts back to what matters most for TDS: new home service installs.
