Manufacturing Marketing Builds Online Presence and Increases Revenue

Bell Performance/Top Line Results Case Study

Manufacturing Marketing Problem:

Bell Performance is a 106-year-old manufacturer of fuel additives and treatments for a wide range of users including consumers, businesses, government entities and industrial users.


Bell had a number of challenges relating to their website and marketing in general thatbell-performance.jpg are common to many older companies.  They had outsourced the management of the website and had no direct control over content management or optimization.  Making changes was a costly and time consuming process.  Bell was uncertain of how to develop an online marketing strategy, though they were keenly aware of the necessity.  They also understood the opportunity to both generate leads from a variety of industries as well as to generate sales using their website.

In short, Bell needed targeted website traffic, conversions of that traffic to leads, and ultimately to turn those leads into customers, and they needed a partner to help them do it.


“Our goal was and still is to create a significant online presence that generates sales revenue, educates consumers and businesses, and convinces them to allow us to help them with their fuel related issues.  We wanted to expand our influence and increase the number of people that knew about Bell.  Top Line Results has certainly led us to achieve those goals by helping us build a marketing platform and process, along with helping us create amazing content that continues to expand our presence online,” says Glenn Williams, Bell Performance President.
