Starting with one person, JG Vertical has grown to proudly employ a crew of over 25 team members. Offering rope access, rigging and rescue services, JG Vertical leads the vertical access industry.
JG Vertical’s tremendous success has been built through traditional networking and word-of-mouth. So traditional in fact, they didn’t even have a website.
Looking to further expand the business, JG Vertical asked pepperit to take charge of their marketing. Starting with a website and moving onto an intelligent marketing effort that would proudly showcase JG Vertical’s expertise, integrity, and quality.
Blessed with spectacular photography, high up from iconic job sites, we designed subtle vertical flair.
Starting from nothing can be a challenge. We saw it as an opportunity. With minimal branding and no real restraints, we launched into stage one of building an online presence – designing and developing the website.
Blessed with spectacular photography, high up from iconic job sites, we designed subtle vertical flair. If you look closely, you’ll notice the traditionally horizontal hamburger menu has been turned vertical. Keep looking and you’ll notice the animation of an abseiler dropping by to greet you. We had some fun with the parallax website design. This involved having the background and foreground of the page moving at different speeds. While each element is subtle, the depth of the design makes the site more memorable.
With the foundational website designed, developed and securely hosted by pepperit, we set our sights on loftier marketing goals. A new website is a proud moment for any business and we helped JG Vertical turn it into a marketing opportunity. What better way to tell your clients, colleagues and referral partners than with a beautifully designed email marketing campaign?
Prior to engaging the pepperheads, social media efforts had been ad-hoc and unplanned. A loyal audience was engaged with the spectacular, unique and technical content, but there was so much more opportunity.

Our emphasis is on building JG Vertical’s expertise to an audience of potential clients. Social media plays a key role in the research phase of a new customer’s journey. Therefore, it’s important we post information that will satisfy the need for information during this investigation phase.

To start, it’s vital to crunch the numbers and determine what keywords have the highest volume and will yield the most conversions, with the least amount of competition. Armed with this list, we execute on-page and off-page SEO activities (keyword research, copywriting and landing page creation and backlink building). These efforts drive more client leads.
With organic social and SEO activities underway, the immediate need is to generate website visitors, enquiries and new clients. This is the place of paid advertising.
