Hello, I’m Michelle from BestEver.Studio, a digital media veteran based in Kelowna with nearly two decades of expertise.

Throughout my career, I’ve guided the transformation and growth of digital platforms, successfully scaling one to 500,000 monthly visitors before its sale. Together, let’s explore how we can overcome the common challenges faced in digital marketing.

In this industry, local businesses frequently encounter a variety of obstacles. To illustrate these effectively, we’ve created a composite character based on our clients’ experiences. Let’s meet Sally, who embodies these challenges and will help us understand how to address them.

ad management fees


High Agency / Contractor Fees

Sally was achieving excellent click-through rates with her social media ads, a testament to their effectiveness. However, the high monthly management fees charged by her social media manager / advertising agency meant that her advertising costs were consistently outpacing her earnings. Frustrated, Sally explored ‘Programmatic Advertising’—a method known for precisely targeting the exact customers she needed. Unfortunately, the costs per impression and click were exorbitantly high, and the need for an agency made it unattainable for her business.


Expensive Local Advertising

Sally is passionate about supporting local initiatives, so she naturally gravitated towards advertising with local media partners. Despite her best intentions, the costs of these media buys were steep, and the traffic generated from her campaigns was disappointingly low. Local media advisors suggested maintaining continuous campaigns to stay ‘top of mind,’ but the budget required was simply unaffordable for Sally. Determined to enhance her community engagement, Sally invested in a high-profile spread in a local print magazine. Although this move briefly boosted her visibility, the return on investment was underwhelming, with no concrete metrics to gauge the impact.


Expensive Photography & Video Production

Sally recognized the importance of maintaining high-quality visuals for her website, newsletters, and social media to keep her brand top of mind. However, the financial burden of producing professional-grade photographs and videos was overwhelming. Hiring skilled content creators required significant investment, which substantially reduced her return on investment. Compounding the issue, neither Sally nor her staff had the time to manage content production in-house, and their attempts using basic tools failed to meet her brand’s standards. Additionally, licensing restrictions on purchased or externally produced content further limited its usage, complicating her ability to fully leverage the visuals across different platforms and marketing campaigns.


Poor Landing Page Conversions

Sally’s landing page, a crucial entry point for her Google Ads, was basic and uninspiring. It lacked the emotional impact and clarity needed to effectively engage and convert visitors. Despite her strong industry reputation, the page did not reflect her expertise or the quality of her services. Sally knew that an effective landing page required not just appealing visuals but also a compelling brand story and sophisticated design. Faced with prohibitively high quotes for professional copywriting and design services, she was pushed towards settling for a landing page that fell short of capturing the essence of her brand.
