Meet James Schaefer of DeliveryMaxx in Rockwall

Today we’d like to introduce you to James Schaefer.

James, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.

Every great idea is born out of need. DeliveryMaxx was founded on providing automotive dealerships an opportunity to retain their customers. However, social media marketing and online reputation quickly became the norm and DeliveryMaxx had to adapt.

We created a Patent-Pending mobile application that allows all companies, organizations, and people (anyone that needs more exposure on the internet) improve their Online Reputation, Social Media Engagement, Search Engine Optimization and Content Management. In addition to automotive dealerships, DeliveryMaxx increased its client base to Real Estate Agents, Churches, Youth Sports Teams, Authors, Attorneys, Doctors, Radio Shows, Gun Clubs and more. “There has never been a client we cannot help. We are able to customize our program that will provide our clients a complete digital marketing strategy for a fraction of what they would pay one person or multiple vendors” states, Founder, James Schaefer.

Has it been a smooth road?

DeliveryMaxx was started in 2009 which the economy was going through one of the worst recessions in history. There were days, I did not know if we would be able to sustain a viable business. I laugh now, but one day my son came home and wanted to watch the World Series. He didn’t know that I had cut off the cable to save money as the business was growing. He had to listen to it with his buddy on the radio! My wife used to call my company DebtMaxx! Luckily, I was able to become cash flow positive in less than 6 months. Now making a profit took a little longer, but it was relatively quicker than most technology companies.

When we first started, DeliveryMaxx wasn’t what it is today. We focused on automotive dealerships customer retention. There was nothing innovative about what we do. Because of the markets demand, we quickly moved into digital marketing and advertising, but we include SEO, Online Reputation, Social Media Engagement and Content Management all using a mobile app.

Because DeliveryMaxx is the first to be able to do what we can do; many businesses don’t understand the complexity of how we are able to produce results. We really are in unchartered territory. However, we use common sense business principles with today’s technology and as we earn the trust of our clients; strong relationships are established.

So let’s switch gears a bit and go into the DeliveryMaxx story. Tell us more about the business.

DeliveryMaxx has Patent-Pending Technology (9 million lines of code) that allows businesses/organizations create maximum exposure on the internet. When Digital Marketing is done right, there is a strategy that is involved. Digital Marketing includes SEO, Online Reputation, Content Management, Social Media Engagement & Marketing and they must all work together to produce the results our clients are looking for. Each client has a different need. Some want to build their reputation in the industry, others want to increase sales or customer satisfaction and we have some that are trying to gain national exposure. Therefore DeliveryMaxx is able to customize a program for each client. Our mobile app makes it very simple to create the content that produces these results. The way DeliveryMaxx was built in the very beginning allows us to continue to grow with our clients. We can keep cost at a minimal because DeliveryMaxx does not have huge overhead.

How do you think the industry will change over the next decade?

The largest shift I see is AI technology which is very fascinating. Pretty soon it will be a common thing to walk into a grocery store or your local convenient store and a sign welcomes you and points you in the direction of the items you desire. Within 10 years, this will be the norm and I suspect it will move a lot faster than that. We already have the technology. This will change the playing field and require traditional marketing to utilize advance technology or get left behind.

How to Create Good Press using the Internet

For years, businesses have sought out traditional forms of media such as television commercials, newspaper ads and radio spots to influence consumers with products and services.  With the introduction of new media platforms such as Facebook, Twitter, YouTube and other social media sites; anyone or business can produce a story which rapidly circulates across the World Wide Web.  With the ease and availability of a medium which can deliver ideals into the intended recipients’ hands businesses would be wise to take advantage of this technology.

However, with the ease of communication should come great caution as the perception of reality quickly becomes reality.  Online reputation sites such as Google Reviews, Yelp and others are a constant reminder and act as a digital report card.  Thus again, by providing superb product and/or services an entity can expect a positive evaluation.  Although most businesses strive to please their customers, many of the online reviews which are published don’t reflect the true principles of the company.

Marketers and media experts alike continue to preach the value of utilizing social media, online reputation, and publishing content.  The prevailing opinions are correct, but sometimes the advice does provide solutions that meet their needs rather the advice is heavy on advertising on new media the same way businesses used to advertise on traditional media.

The first thing businesses must realize is that new media, often referred to as social media, is much different than traditional media.  A good analogy would be to consider a time when you were talking with a group of friends at a gathering, if a car sales person (insert any sales person) were to interrupt your story; how would that make you feel? It’s pretty simple.  You would not appreciate it no matter how great the deal or sales pitch was.  This is what many businesses try to do on social media.  They interrupt your news feed with advertisement that the consumer does not want to see.

Now, it is no secret.  Everyone is on social media today and cell phones have increased this activity by thousands of percent.  Thus, in order for businesses and marketers to increase their reach; they cannot abandoned social media and review sites.  However, they have to create a great strategy to allow their message to be seen without rudely shoving this message down a virtual throat.  If only there was a way that companies could get their customers to share their great experiences with all of their friends and family. 

DeliveryMaxx has created a patent-pending solution that allows any entity to make it easy and desirable for the consumer to share their wonderful experience.  It’s very simple and doesn’t interfere with the normal sales or service process of the company.  In fact, companies that implement the DeliveryMaxx solution see a positive change in culture and have the ability to meet the demands of Social Media Marketing, Online Reputation and Content Management.  For more information on how DeliveryMaxx can customize a program for your company contact us at or call 888.936.6299.

shutterstock_278629712Can you guess what the word of the day is?  That’s right, it is Retention.  You know what it means, but is your business doing everything it can to retain the customers who visit you?  In order to grow a business you must do two things, acquire new customers and keep them around for a LONG time.  Yet, studies show that businesses are over 3x more likely to focus on acquisition efforts compared to retention efforts.  This post will focus on why retention is important necessary  CRUCIAL to your business plan.
Retention Makes More Money Honey
166According to estimates, around 80% of future revenue for businesses come from just 20% of existing customers.  And it is not hard to figure out why, existing customers are easier to sell to.  They are comfortable, they know your business.  The likelihood of converting an existing customer to buy from you again is 60-70%, while the likelihood of converting a new prospect to purchase is only 5-20%!  Are you playing the odds correctly?  By focusing your resources to improve the way you retain customers, your company has the potential to generate a significant amount of revenue.  The more you retain, the more money you have to spend on gains.
Retention Has Less Cost Boss
The cost of customer acquisition (CAC) have been estimated to cost 4 to 10 times more than the cost of retaining an existing one.  Not to mention that existing customers are familiar with your business and require a lot less hand-holding and understand how to go through the process and where to get help to solve any problems they may encounter.  As a result, existing customers are a lot cheaper to provide service to.  And your existing customer base is a golden source for referrals, therefore efforts you put into retention will help grow your customer base.  Keeping customers around for the long haul means you’re delivering a great experience and you can turn your happy customer’s success stories into case studies to bring in more prospects.
Retention Is a Marketing King
Not only do your retention efforts generate revenue, they also give you a lot of insights on how to improve your marketing effort to acquire new customers by letting you know what content you need to communicate to prospects, and who you need to be targeting.
