The Challenge

L.D. Smith Plumbing started in a garage over 10 years ago with a focus on high quality plumbing services at a fair price without gimmicks. It wasn’t long before the company outgrew the garage, added employees and equipment, and became part of Indianapolis competitive plumbing services landscape. The company has earned a reputation to handle the big plumbing jobs such as excavations.

Even today they aren't among the 10 largest plumbing companies, but with our partnership they continue to rank top 5 in the most searched queries for people looking for plumbing. 

The Process

In today’s consumer market, you can only get so far without digital outreach and website optimization. Referrals dry out and you need a digital strategy to keep you competitive and continue to drive sales.

Fuel VM partnered with L.D. Smith Plumbing to create a foundation for digital outreach and continue to build on it. Prior to the partnership, the Indianapolis-based company focused its marketing efforts on referrals, social media, and subscription-based home services.


Part of the initial strategy involved:
  • Customizing SEO on the primary website
  • Creating landing pages and microsites to promote select services
  • Optimizing Google My Business
  • Updating meta descriptions
  • Updating primary website to reduce barriers for different buyer personas
  • Implementing a reputation management platform to increase customer reviews
While this worked wonders for them, every company needs a carefully curated plan to solve their unique problems. 


Following our initial strategy to set a foundation for SEO and reputation management, L.D. Smith Plumbing’s online presence improved quickly resulting in exponential growth in organic traffic, customer reviews, and conversions. L.D. Smith Plumbing’s Google ranking in popular key searches related to local plumbing services also improved. The digital marketing strategy has been one of the key pieces for its expanding footprint in Central Indiana.

Our digital marketing strategy continues to adapt to L.D. Smith Plumbing’s business patterns and needs which include short-term targeted email campaigns, geotargeting efforts and more.  
increase in daily organic web traffic over the span of 18 months.
