Proceed Innovative LLC was featured in the “Success Stories” section of SBA’s (Schaumburg Business Association) 2020 Business Resource Guide with the following article.
Proceed innovative LLC helps companies extend brand awareness and drive sales through interactive marketing strategies, search engine optimization, Google ads, creative SEO web design and web analytics consulting.
“Today, many people use a company’s online presence to evaluate their reputation,” said Patrick Panayotov, client service manager, “So, we work with these companies to design new, action-oriented websites and choose the specific words and phrases that are key to organic search engine optimization.”
Over the past 18 months, Proceed Innovative has grown exponentially, moving from 600 square feet in a shared office space to an 1,800-square-feet private space in the same office building. The move has already allowed them to add 4 additional employees and they are anticipating the hiring of 2 more during 2020, Panayotov said.
The firm’s membership in the SBA, he noted, has helped them gain customers and grow in size. For instance, Panayotov worked with 2 SBA members who suggested the use of NAIC’s company codes to generate leads for companies around the country that might be interested in becoming part of their RestorationMasterFinder service, and the effort was very successful.
Panayotov has also been instrumental in the formation of a Young Professionals group within the SBA. He and several others pitched the idea to the SBA and the Young Professionals group was founded in early 2019. In fact, Panayotov served as its first chairman.
“There are many great opportunities for young professionals in Schaumburg. They don’t have to go to Chicago to advance their careers,” he said. “So, we put together a group to help young professionals key into local opportunities through social, service and career development activities. We currently have about 15 active board members and our events often draw 50 to 60 people. We even have a popular book club.”
