Step 3 – Industry and Competitor Analysis

Industry and competitor analysis is a core part of our SEO strategy. We reviewed the industry in-depth including competitors to identify what our client could be doing better and to take advantage of marketing gap opportunities not filled by any other brand in the industry.

Step 4 – Implementation alongside in-house Team

We were able to identify website user experience issues so we recommended a website redesign with a focus on user experience and conversion rate optimization. The SEO Marketing team worked alongside the in-house web and graphics design team to ensure that the website was redesigned according to recommendations.

We created and executed digital marketing strategies across channels  (Website and social) for this brand. We also designed and executed a multi-channel lead generation system to bring new sign-ups and sales each day.
