Group Twenty Seven Testimonials

We work with many types of clients in a wide variety of industries. Here’s what some of our clients have to say about our services and results:

Their mix of creativity, data driven solutions, and transparency sets them apart.

"When we started working with Group Twenty Seven, we were ready to spend more in order to make more — but we weren’t sure how to do it strategically. Pauline and her team came in and tested new approaches and strategies that are taking our results to new levels. At the same time, they stay aligned with our goals and keep us well informed. It’s this mix of creativity, data driven solutions, and transparency that sets them apart. I highly recommend them."

—Christopher Case, CMO, My Foot Shop

Couldn’t be happier with the results.

“I’ve worked with a variety of PPC/search companies over the years, and Pauline and her team, continue to be outstanding. We are in a very difficult position bidding against some of the larger cancer organizations out there, and Pauline and co continually find great ways to compete without breaking the bank.

We’ve been working with Group Twenty Seven for about four years, and I couldn’t be happier with the results. We meet with their team on a weekly basis and review status and performance. They are very responsive to our needs and always think outside of the box, as you know it’s an ever-changing field.”

—Peter Anton, VP of Marketing, International Myeloma Foundation
Client since February 2017

A partner in every sense of the word.

“Pauline and her entire team at Group Twenty Seven have been amazing to work with. They’re smart, organized and always on top of new trends and platform updates. We initially contacted them to fill a void until we could make an internal hire, but given the value they’ve brought us, we’ve kept them on board for over three years. They are truly an extension of our team with a high level of collaboration and understanding of our unique business.

We are not a traditional e-commerce company with unique inventory rotating on and off our site daily and they have gotten creative, analytical, and thoughtful to test out new ways to drive results. They are always looking for new ways to optimize our campaigns and collaborate with us to ensure we are able to demonstrate ROI. Most importantly they will let us know when something isn't working so we can decide to iterate or take a different approach. They are thoughtful of our budgets and make sure we always get the most out of every click. Group Twenty Seven is a partner in every sense of the word asking the right questions and driving results through their work.”

Group Twenty Seven delivers.

“Simply put, in the past ten years, Pauline and Group Twenty Seven have helped me grow a small start-up team building company into the largest corporate event company in America. Since then, I’ve enlisted Pauline to handle another one of my start-ups, with two more launching this year. Any company can say they can manage your PPC marketing, but Group Twenty Seven delivers.”

Steady increase in ROI year over year.

Better ROI on Google Ads dollars.

“The Group Twenty Seven Team knows their stuff when it comes to Google Ads. They were able to overhaul my advertising account to provide a similar rate of conversions at substantially less cost. They are great communicators, friendly and pleasant to work with. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Group Twenty Seven to anyone looking for better ROI on their Google Ads dollars.”

Professional knowledge guiding our PPC campaigns.

“After managing our own AdWords account for several years with limited success and an ever increasing budget, we decided it was time to find someone to help us better manage and analyze our campaigns. We’ve been working with Pauline and her dedication of time and energy to our campaigns has been a huge weight lifted off our shoulders. Pauline keeps us well informed and truly cares about the quantity and quality of leads her team is driving to our site. We are thrilled with the services she offers our company and are thankful to have her honest opinion and professional knowledge guiding our PPC campaigns.”

We are able to close more sales.

“I am writing to you to express my feelings towards the work you have done for Sunvent Industries and our Google Adwords and Microsoft adCenter Campaigns. I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your dedication and service to improving our PPC campaigns. Not only have you saved us a tremendous amount of money that would have been otherwise wasted, you have honed in on our keywords and campaigns in general making them so much more efficient.

The leads we now receive are almost all pertinent to what we actually manufacture here, rather than having call after call from potential customers that are not even looking for a product we carry. This has made it much easier for us to deal with phone calls and email inquiries as they are far more relevant. We are able to close more sales due to the fact that those that contact us are actually looking for a product we can provide to them.

Your tracking, dedication and reporting is extremely helpful to us. At times I feel that you are working only for us as you are so focused on our company’s success. This is greatly appreciated and I look forward to a continuing, long lasting relationship.”

—Lori Joseph, President, Flood Solutions & Sunvent Industries

PPC expert who puts the client's needs first.

“Group Twenty Seven has been a joy to work with. Pauline Jakober is professional, knowledgeable and caring. She is a PPC expert who puts the client's needs first. I have an unusual business and have been impressed by her taking the time to learn about our product lines, and figuring out the best way to find the right audience. She's also patient in helping with client education. I would highly recommend Group Twenty Seven to anyone.”

Leads were significantly more qualified and ready to engage.

“We turned to Pauline Jakober and Group Twenty Seven when we realized that we could no longer manage our PPC campaigns. Not only did we cut our expenditures by more than half, but our leads were significantly more qualified and ready to engage with us. Pauline and her team are highly responsive and turn around data and recommendations with lightning speed!”

—Lyn Chamberlin, Vice President for External Affairs, Vermont College of Fine Arts

Real “money in the bank” results.

“The Group Twenty Seven team is very data- and numbers-driven with a good understanding of AdWords. Pauline is a prompt and frequent communicator, which for me is an A item. And unlike many consultants, she will listen to you and work to understand your business.

Perhaps the biggest complement I can give Pauline is that she understands that my business is about making money. She is focused on using pay per click to improve our bottom line—not number of visits, not cost per click … but real ‘money in the bank’ results.

Through the years, I have wasted a lot of money with 3rd party PPC companies with results ranging from poor to terrible. The time and money we have invested with Group Twenty Seven is time and money well spent. I consider Pauline an extension of the Sign Art Etc team.”

—Doug Ellenberger, President, Sign Art Etc

A teaching atmosphere was presented.

“By finding Pauline Jakober at Group Twenty, a teaching atmosphere was presented to us since we wanted to learn more precise PPC tactics in order to tweak changes over time to our own campaigns. Our CTR% increased from low percentages to 10%+ immediately. With attention to detail, a timeframe respected, open dialogue to explain simple and complex questions, we would HIGHLY recommend Group Twenty Seven for any level of help needed for Adwords and other PPC Management.”

Turned out to be exactly what I needed.

“I wanted to learn PPC online marketing and I was referred to Pauline Jakober at Group Twenty Seven. I signed up for a multi week training course that turned out to be exactly what I needed in learning how to plan and create my own Google advertising campaigns. I’m now managing my advertising myself and Group Twenty Seven made that possible. Thank you!”

Great results immediately!

“We engaged Group Twenty Seven to help us with our corporate Adwords account. They delivered great results immediately! I worked directly with Pauline Jakober and found her to be bright, knowledgeable, generous with her time, and sensitive to our needs. She was able to take control of our account, make improvements and get positive results very quickly.

Group Twenty Seven was responsive to phone calls and emails, and went above and beyond the terms of the engagement, including spending a lot of time answering questions and explaining strategy and tactics. I definitely recommend Group Twenty Seven for anyone who is looking for better results and ROI from Adwords.”

—Julia Altman, Marketing Director, Burning Glass Technologies

Our revenue has doubled.

“We couldn’t be more pleased with the services Group Twenty Seven has provided. We started working with them in 2011. I spent some time talking to Pauline Jakober about what I wanted to accomplish, and provided her some of the keywords I thought were important, based on what we have seen in the past. Since working with Group Twenty Seven, our revenue has doubled when I compare the same months from the previous year. Since we have made no other changes to our business, I can only attribute this to the work that Group Twenty Seven has done for us.

For most of the past 7 years, we have managed pay per click for our business in-house. I did use the services of another pay per click manager for about 6 months 2 years ago. At that time, there was only a slight increase in gross revenue. So I took pay per click management back in-house. The biggest thing I’ve learned is you get what you pay for! For years, I thought I couldn’t afford a pay per click manager. My only regret is that I didn’t find Group Twenty Seven earlier.”

—Beth Engel, CEO, Engraved Stones Direct

Our revenue from Adwords has almost tripled!

“It has absolutely been a pleasure to work with Group Twenty Seven. They really got to know our business and who we were trying to market to. Equally importantly to us is what type of business we wanted to avoid. Because of their thoroughness, they were able to give us great new ideas not only for PPC campaigns, but for ways to generate organic growth.

They're as excited as we are to see the results as they come in. Since engaging with Group Twenty Seven, we’ve seen our ROI more than double, our click-through rate has nearly doubled, and our revenue from Adwords has almost tripled. We couldn’t be happier with Group Twenty Seven and would recommend them to anybody except our competitors.”

—Brett Haney, CEO, Microfibre Wholesale

Out-performed my expectations.

“Pauline has a take-charge attitude and subtle-yet-confident approach that resulted in her being immediately embraced by our development department when we first engaged with her PPC agency in 2010.

She is not only creative but possesses the rare skill of being able to communicate her ideas and their associated benefits effectively, which in our case resulted in immediate improvements in our project performance. As she became familiar with our customer base, Pauline suggested a unique methodology custom fit to our complex business model which out-performed my expectations. And, best of all, she did all this inside my tight budget restrictions. Put another way, Pauline gets results.”

—Brad Barber, Vice President Advertising, Al’s Formal Wear

Traffic up and costs down.

“Group Twenty Seven’s service with our Adwords campaigns resulted in a very targeted approach with traffic up and costs down.”

A positive return on investment.

“High Rankings has been successfully working with Group Twenty Seven for many years. Our clients have been extremely pleased with Pauline’s professionalism and knowledge of the latest search marketing trends. But more importantly, they have been amazed at how she is able to take lackluster PPC campaigns and breathe new life into them.

Pauline explains exactly what she’s doing throughout every step of the process, and is readily available for any questions or concerns that might crop up. Pauline ultimately provides our clients with more targeted website visitors at a lower cost per lead which creates a positive return on their investment.”
