The campaign resulted in Twitter influence and retweets from local news outlets and accounts, alerting thousands of Woodbridge residents of the award.
Bort Insurance Services enjoys doing giveaways on their Facebook page.

This meant that over 25,500 people, who may have never heard of Charles Mills otherwise, were exposed to the Charles Mills Insurance Agency Facebook page.

This has led to the agency’s custom videos showing up at the top of both YouTube and Google search results. This has been beneficial in promoting many different lines of insurance products. The client shared in the excitement by saying, “That is great news! That has been our ultimate goal! Thank you for helping us reach it!”

Little Dog Social Media has been very attentive in managing our business social media presence. I appreciate the monthly activity reports from the multiple sites that they are managing that include the traffic that is being generated.
