Are you looking for help marketing your painting company in Ontario? In a competitive field like painting, it can be hard to get noticed and found in the digital world. This is what makes having an expertly crafted and targeted digital marketing campaign necessary.

At Intrigue, our team has a thorough understanding of how to market to homeowners and businesses, and we have ample experience in producing results for painting companies.

Take a look at the work we’ve done with New Approach Painting in the following case study:

The Client

New Approach Painting is a professional painting company based out of Kitchener, Ontario. They provide professional commercial and residential painting in the Tri-Cities, Guelph, and the surrounding area.

New Approach Painting separates itself from their competition because their approach is different (as their name would suggest) than most painting companies in two ways:

  1. They have a permanent team of professional painters. This means no seasonal workers, higher quality results, and increased accountability.
  2. They research and test all their products. This ensures that when New Approach Painting vouches for a product, they have the first-hand experience to give expert recommendations.

The Marketing Services

New Approach Case Study- Digital Marketing Services

Intrigue began helping New Approach Painting with their digital marketing in 2017. Since then, New Approach Painting has seen their sales increase 50%.

Our team has executed a number of marketing objectives, including:

  • A new website design that reflects the quality of the brand
  • A comprehensive content strategy that includes monthly blogging and quarterly emails
  • A lead generation campaign using a Google Ad strategy
  • A photo and video shoot to elevate the brand and provide a stellar user experience on their website and in their content

Proven Results in Lead Generation

In the last year, New Approach Painting has seen terrific growth on their website with total users up 219% and a huge rise in traffic during targeted ad campaigns.

Overall, total thank you page views rose from 38 to 91 (up 139%) from their last campaign to their current campaign. Thank you page views are an important variable in measuring success in a digital marketing campaign. When a lead sees a thank you page, it means they completed a form or fulfilled a call to action.

This information tells us that more visitors are converting to leads for New Approach Painting than ever before.

New Approach Painting’s digital marketing campaign was a four-pronged approach for success:

  1. Blogging
  2. Video Production
  3. Email Marketing
  4. Google Ads


New Approach Blog- Example

New Approach Painting’s blogging strategy has led to hundreds of page views and has increased their authority as a local painting expert.

Our blog strategy focused on answering the many questions customers have about how to paint, stain, and wallpaper their house. Each article incorporated a call to action (CTA) that encouraged the reader to contact New Approach Painting for expert services.

Email Marketing

New Approach Email Wins

Intrigue developed an email marketing strategy for New Approach Painting that included sending three email newsletters per year that highlighted their blog posts, provided high-value painting tips, and encouraged readers to leave a Google Review.

Google Ads

New Approach Conversion Wins

Intrigue ran a Google Ad campaign that increased ad sessions by 479% and total website sessions by 341%.

This dramatic jump in traffic led to a significant boost in conversions and thank you pageview conversions increased from 23 to 56 (up 144%). 31 of those conversions came directly from the Google Ads campaign, proving that with the right keywords, design, and copywriting, ads can turn into highly-qualified leads.
