organic web traffic

  • Business listings were updated for the various locations and submitted to all search engines. Outdated business listings are one way for search engines to drop your rankings.
  • We created new ads to feature on search engines, as well as some of the social media sites, to help reflect their brand. These also got posted to digital marketing areas that had not been previously engaged.
  • With their in-house marketing team, we designed a plan that would assist them in keeping a close eye on campaigns and progress, with the ability to identify areas needed for improvement or to tweak their social media campaigns where and when needed.
  • Digital marketing audit & monthly consulting services are engaged. This will continually assist them with up-to-date technologies and support their content development initiatives. This will also help them with a comprehensive strategy so their in-house team can execute their targeted budget planning, while at the same time leveraging all their offline marketing expenditures to support all online resources needed.
