Custom Website and Content Marketing Strategy

Project Overview

Dodson Pest Control is the largest family-owned and operated pest control company in North America. Over the past 75 years, the company has grown from an idea to a highly successful organization of more than 600 employees serving thousands of customers across seven states. While the company had experienced substantial growth, Dodson’s marketing and sales efforts centered around traditional lead generation – billboards and advertisements. By 2016, the company was ready to invest in a new website and digital marketing strategy with the goal of boosting lead generation.
