Client Testimonial – Anna Maria Vacations

Vacation rental companies can’t compete without modern and compelling websites. Being stuck in the early 2000s just doesn’t cut it. That’s where RealTech Services can provide the necessary expertise in up-to-date website design, social media, and digital marketing services.

We spoke with Mia Popaja, marketing manager at Anna Maria Vacations, to learn more about how RealTech has helped transition her business to a new website that pays dividends through the increased conversion of click-throughs into reservations.

Can you tell me a little about your business?

Mia Popaja: We are a vacation rental company on Anna Maria Island in Florida that represents more than 250 properties. We strictly rent on the island. We cater toward the luxury market; although, we have a little bit of everything.

Why did you choose RealTech?

Mia Popaja: When we switched our software providers, they recommended RealTech to us.

How was your experience with RealTech?

Mia Popaja: We have had a good experience with RealTech. We redesigned our website completely this past January. We worked a long time on the redesign.

Personally, I am really proud of the home page and the web banners we have. The redesign was a long process, but it is something we get a lot of compliments on. It moves so well. It’s so easy to use. People really appreciate that.

We work really closely with project manager Bill Eisenhard and his support team. They are great to work with. Bill is fantastic. I can call him anytime and know he’ll help us. If we have any issues with the website or we need an update in a quick time frame, he’ll get it done for us as soon as possible.

How have your results been?

Mia Popaja: We have seen great improvements in our SEO year over year. We’re coming up in top search results, and we’re seeing a good conversion rate. Everything is going well. We’ve seen improvements in our website for sure. We brought it up to speed to represent us in the best light with their help and recommendations. They put a really good product together.

What makes your business different?

Mia Popaja: We cater more towards high-end vacation rentals. We have some of the largest and nicest homes on the island. Not a lot of companies can compare. We have a large volume of calls and inquiries and need a lot of customized content. We’re so fast-paced it is so hard to find someone who can keep up with all we do on a daily basis.

What are you planning for 2017?

Mia Popaja: So far, we have already launched our new website, and we are looking forward to expanding our online presence! Everything is going great. We’re getting lots of good feedback from our new guests and previous guests. Everybody is really liking the website. We’re planning on continuing to get out good content and marketing to make sure we stay on top.
