Hey Brian, I know it is going to sound crazy, but it's not ALL about "being on Page 1 of Google" - it's about results.
Here are a couple of questions for you:
If you document all this BEFORE your campaign starts, and track results during and after the campaign, you'll be able to see the improvements. Focus on the areas which worked the best for that campaign, and repeat.
If you're guaranteeing clients they'll get on Page 1 of Google Search Results, that's not a good promise to make as it's totally out of your control.
Guaranteeing results in measurable ways (as mentioned above) is what counts.
PS - if the website you used in the Social Media Campaign isn't your own website, make THAT your next client. :-) Then you'll be able to show future prospective clients how well you know your Social Media WORKS!
Document the website's position (in the areas mentioned above) in a spreadsheet and track it for a month, with snapshots etc - this can be your social proof.
Best of luck and congratulations on your first campaign!
