Ty's Outdoor Power Case Study

A sales & marketing strategy that
grew annual revenue by 62%

The Challenge

Ty’s Outdoor Power & Service wasn’t seeing ROI from its marketing efforts, which were primarily focused on traditional outlets, including radio, print, and TV. The company’s internal marketing coordinator was unable to show revenue attribution to the marketing tactics — and unable to find a path forward through new, more profitable mechanisms due to a lack of knowledge and experience.

The company’s founder and owner, Ty Lisiecki, knew there had to be a different, more effective way to get his message to a broader audience, but he needed some outside expertise to help him make it a reality.

The Solution

Peer’s research and discovery process revealed that, with big-box stores like Home Depot and Lowe's offering more options in the small engine division, Ty’s needed to reach residential customers and show them the value of buying local, from a specialized shop. We put together a comprehensive turnkey solution that coupled Ty’s product capabilities with their reputation for excellent customer service, creating a compelling, locally focused narrative to engage prospective customers.

First, we researched how the marketing budget was being spent, channel by channel.

From there, we created a strategic message that aligned with buyer problems and presented Ty’s as the solution.

After taking the time to understand what had worked or failed in the past, we quickly implemented a digital marketing strategy, fully connected to the sales team via HubSpot CRM.

Every lead was immediately routed to an outside or inside sales rep, who followed up within minutes of receiving the lead.

As we reported on the efficacy of each channel, funds were moved away from poor performers and injected into more effective mediums.

Our digital tactics included:

Search engine marketing (Google ads)

Peer was critical in helping us better connect the marketing to our overall sales strategy. They definitely put more balls in the funnel, but more importantly, they build the collateral we need to convert those leads to closed deals.

Peer’s decision to use digital marketing to gauge interest in the new market resulted in a groundswell before announcing Ty's next grand opening. And, within the first year of our partnership, Ty's saw significant growth, allowing the company to open its third location in a new market.
