EKHO — How A Brand New SAAS Agency Broke Into A Saturated Market & Scaled To $2.3 Million In Revenue In Just 8 Months
Invested $30K To Start Up & The Goal Was To Make $20K MRR By First Quarter’s End
Content is crucial to Ekho’s strategy in organic growth. We had the technique, the brains, and the money but we didn’t have a plan until January 2022. We refined our offer down to an SEO-specific service and built out from there.
Our SEO service is based on a proprietary technology we do research and development for, so not being able to completely promote the software we struggled with our messenging. People either thought we were full of it, or that we were doing something super sketchy.
It wasn’t until we were able to build some trust with a few key agencies and clients, that we really started to realize how we could position ourselves within the market.

Month 8 — What Are The Results?
We’ve grown to a 7-figure company, building relationships and partnerships with 2 Fortune 500 companies, 3 marketing agencies, and 4 consultants with their own client base. Our team is passionate and incentivized, and our clients are fulfilled.
Together we’ve grossed $6.7 million in revenue, with EKHO being a 35% profit sharer.
Our client’s also say good things:
I have run a media buying agency for 25 years. I have worked with a lot of clients and vendors over the years. I recently hired Ekho to help me with a major drop in sales we experienced due to the changes in ad regulations.
They were able to restore our conversion rates back to the “”good ol’ days”” within the promised 90 day timeframe. It was a huge endeavor that Ashley just ‘tweaked’ and made it seem easy. This is the least of what Ekho has done for my agency. She has helped guide me in many digital endeavors of the business – I have expanded my services, grown my agency beyond what I could have done on my own or with anyone else. I’m able to finally live my life the way I want and work with clients I choose.
Ashley is 100% devoted to the very best services available today for SEO and every single aspect of data-driven SEO. She is accountable, provides clear result reports, and is available to answer all my questions. She integrity and commitment is simply… quite impressive. She is very leading edge for results, performance and for any company to have greater success. Anyone would be lucky to have her on their team! I know I am.

After a year of interviewing SEO “experts” we went with Ekho. Ashley, their Data Scientist, demonstrated she knew how to leverage our domain to return on its investment. We have campaigns that Ashley has launched and managed that are closing in on 205% ROI!
Ashley is responsive and makes herself accountable to the outcomes. If she is not sure of something, she is always straight-forward about it and offers an alternative approach. She will lose you in the details of her capabilities, and it’s clear she’s passionate about what she’s doing. Speaking with her and learning from her has been an experience in itself, and I’ve never been so happy with an SEO professional before.

When we decided to re-design our website we decided to go with a different marketing agency, but it was a disaster. The website was beautiful, but it was slow and our rank was slowly declining, so we were losing traffic and sales nearly every week that passed.
I reached out to Ekho to help us out with a website audit to find out what was going on, and within 2 days I had answers and a plan. I was delighted to see how prepared and professional Ashley and her team were. They took the time to explain all the options to us and came up with some creative solutions to achieve our goals while keeping our budget in mind. We’ve since worked with them in different areas of our business and have been very satisfied with the outcomes.
We’ve been working with them for about five months now and I never worry about whether we’ll be getting more customers, because it’s been steady ever since we signed with Ashley. The site is SUPER fast and we’re ranking high in pretty much every location we sell locally at. People are even starting to find us from other locations around the states and buying online.
If you’re looking for a company that is professional, personable, and does an amazing job, I’d recommend Ekho 1000%.
