About the client

The Gardens at Spring Shadows is a senior living community in Northwest Houston. Our agency began managing this business in December 2013 and rebranded it under this name. Previously, it functioned as a multi-family residence and provided excellent service to its customers for over 45 years.

the challenges

  1. The Gardens at Spring Shadows faced a significant challenge as they heavily depended on aplaceformom.com, a lead provider that charged high fees for each lead and claimed sales commissions.
  2. The outdated listings and incorrect contact information linked to their last name, “The Terrace at Spring Shadows,” caused significant problems for the community’s online presence.
  3. Their website’s rigid design restricted their ability to be flexible in their digital marketing strategies.
  4. As a senior living community in Houston, the client had to fiercely compete for online visibility against many other communities, including those located beyond our local market.
