Mnemonic devices aside, Roy G. Biv and primary colors have given way to a new era of color-naming beyond what we could have imagined when 96 crayons represented the outer limits of our imagination.

Built by Design – a Kansas-based remodeling company – contacted EAG Advertising & Marketing in June of 2012. They were frustrated; they had hired a local search engine marketing company and believed that they had put their website and online marketing in capably and knowledgeable hands. However, they quickly realized they didn’t have a clear concept of what they were paying for or if they were getting results – what was the ROI?

They knew that there was something wrong, so they contacted EAG Advertising for help.
