Elizabeth Sturges Equipment Rental Center

Challenge: Keeping the equipment rental center digitally relevant in the market

Elizabeth Sturges, an account executive at The Eagle, has only been selling media for a little over a year, but in that time has become comfortable enough with AdMall’s Digital Audit that she knew it would help her when she approached a worried equipment rental center.

The Equipment Rental center specializes in operating a full-​service rental company to commercial businesses, contractors, homeowners, and residential clients,” said Sturges. “[They were] looking for an SEO Audit after expressing the concern that [they were] spending money elsewhere, but were not confident that the specific agency [they were currently using] was doing [their] business any good.

Solution: Turn to AdMall’s Digital Audit for the equipment rental center

AdMall allowed me to complete a digital audit of their current efforts in the digital space,” said Sturges. “The [equipment rental center owner] was looking to invest money in the commercial side of his business of renting equipment instead of the smaller residential rental clients.” 

We used the digital audit to customize a proposal for the client and with the information retrieved from the digital audit [made] recommendations on what we could do to better serve their needs.”

Result: An SEO campaign with room for growth

The [equipment rental center’s] current campaign is [focused on] SEO, with the possibility of digital advertising in the future,” said Sturges.

The client signed on for a one-​year contract for a total value of $12,000. Sturges has recommendations for how other new sales reps can take advantage of AdMall’s vast sales tools.

I started using AdMall when I first started here at The Eagle in February 2021,” said Sturges.” I would research clients and perform audits to anticipate what their needs might be or have information on what they are currently doing. Other information such as co-​op dollar opportunities and monthly incentives running for businesses also allowed a foot in the door to a conversation for a specific business.” 

[New reps should] definitely take some time to peruse the information that AdMall offers! Look at what is trending and what information can be gathered about like businesses in your market. The capability to look at local prospecting opportunities and current incentives, savings events, and local promotions gives you firsthand knowledge when prospecting new clients or even pitching an increase in budget and/​or tactics to a current client. Knowing about a client’s business and industry beforehand and approaching them with direct information about their business allows for a more personable conversation.”

These establishments primarily rent equipment on a short-​term basis to homeowners or contractors. The market is comprised of three main segments: Heavy construction, light construction/​general tool/​, and party/​special events. Typical rentals include lawn and garden equipment or construction equipment. Clients rent the equipment because they have a limited need or because they lack sufficient funding to purchase the equipment.
