I’m excited to introduce today’s guest Chris Dreyer was the founder of rankings.io. And you know, his company helps elite personal injury firms land serious injury and auto accident cases with Google search. If you want to learn something, what I’ve learned from studying Chris is Focus, okay, just focus. And he focuses in niches down. And by doing that, he can be really systemized and he can serve the client better. And they are a personal injury law firm SEO agency and serve clients all over the country. And they help them win first page rankings. And he started ringtones.io because he saw the legal verticals underserved. And he saw many of the competitors were not delivering the results, they should and he knew he could do better. And I love this saying which is true, by the way. They have to have first page results, because if you’re on the second page, you’re dead, and actually, you know, Chris, I would disagree with that. Okay. The weird disagree is not even the second page. If you’re on the lower half of the first page.

 

Unknown Speaker  3:49  

Sometimes you’re dead.

 

Jeremy Weisz  3:50  

Right? Not even the second page. You know, people ask me Jeremy, how did you find out about me I’m like, I went to the third page of Google which no one goes to right but Check out rankings.io for more information, they have an amazing company. Chris, thanks for joining me.

 

Chris Dreyer  4:06  

Thank you so much for the intro. Thanks for having me. I always ask

 

Jeremy Weisz  4:08  

since Inspired Insider, what’s been a challenging moment, low moment, and what’s been a proud moment

 

Unknown Speaker  4:15  

on the other end?

 

Chris Dreyer  4:18  

Good question, a challenging moment, which would be probably I think, over three years ago over hiring, every business owner experiences that and we’re tracking our we’re using leading lagging indicators well enough and over hired forecast properly. So that kind of or cash flow and that was a learning experience for sure. How do you navigate that? You know, we’re EOS and traction really helped profit verse Mike McLeod Calloway, it’s really helped. So we are looking at the numbers on a weekly basis as well. is leading indicators so things like accounts receivable money out on the street, so to speak. We know who owes us money and we’re not letting it go too long you know, we have an AR 30 plus so accounts receivable 30 plus out on the street that we know that we need to keep hitting them to get the money where we shut down the service. Our lessons learned like that, you know, great people, but they don’t pay it, you know? And do money for free. So those those are those are some difficult ones. Um, some exciting ones I would say, you know, in 5000 back last two years. Um, those are probably some really some really good accomplishments for our clients. We’ve got you know, I like I think the rewards our clients, we’ve got a client ranking number one nationwide for Car Accident Lawyer we got number one in Chicago, Philadelphia, Houston for Car Accident Lawyer, you know, major metros, so those are some really exciting

 

Jeremy Weisz  6:01  

Let’s do what about you know, like you mentioned is rewarding when you get your clients results do you remember a specific company or case when they were extremely appreciative above and beyond was or anything like that that was especially rewarding

 

Chris Dreyer  6:23  

oh yeah so I we’ve been flown out to Clearwater and put up a nice resort we had we’ve got some tremendous gifts and yeah so I would say flying out to location flight they sent us on trips and things like that have been really cool. Yeah.
