Got a challenge for us?

We have the solution.

  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

We have successfully worked with Element-360 for several years. Proper Web exposure is critical to generating leads for our clients. The team at Element-360 does an amazing job of monitoring our site and recommending technical improvements that increase exposure. We have seen a continual increase in traffic since hiring their team and each month gets better. We remain on page one for organic key word search in several markets. The monthly updates we receive from their team are thorough and thoughtful with valid recommendations for key word search improvement, technical adjustments and overall site recommendations. Every one of the team members we work with are professional, knowledgeable and pleasant. I know this professional culture of caring comes directly from the culture established by Chad’s leadership. We love working with this team and have seen our business grow directly proportional to the excellent work they do on our behalf. Thank you Chad and the Element-360 team!

Kit Garren, Founder, Tons of Rentals

We engaged Element-360 in Jan 2016 because our print and online marketing was not yielding the volume and quality that I knew we could reach. e360 has generated leads in greater volume and with a high level of qualification and immediacy of need. Chad’s group is constantly analyzing, revising, editing, and improving our messaging and delivery methods to enhance the viewer experience and heighten the probability for prospect information gathering.

Further, the “blanket” e360 has applied to the broader digital marketing plan has resulted in greater overall exposure to our local community. The perceived presence by locals is far beyond the actual reach and placement.

Element-360 has exceeded our goals. We are thankful to have them as part of our marketing team.

Brad Galbraith, Vice President – Community Development, Biltmore Farms

Chad and I worked together at Intrawest for a number of years, and again years later with his new firm and mine. When we were looking for an online media partner in 2014 for our real estate assets, we interviewed lots of other companies. In the end, Chad and his team were the clear choice and have delivered superior results. Clear strategies and action plans. Lots of qualified real estate leads. Always on or under budget. Maybe best of all Chad and his team always seem to be pushing the envelope and creating new marketing strategies to further his company’s value proposition and our results/return on investment. Let it be known we currently work with three other strategic online media partners for other areas of our business (non-real estate related) and while they are all great – they are not Element 360. If you are looking for real results and return, and to work with the best, talk with Chad.
