Portfolio & Case Studies
Sound Design wanted an inbound marketing package every month that would make their online presence grow while at the same time engaging their users. Every week our content writer would create brand new blog posts that were unique, engaging, interesting and well written.
After the blogs were written our SEO marketer would spend time targeting a keyword and optimizing the blog post for search engines.
Combining carefully crafted content with targeted search engine optimization yields incredible results for both users and business owners.
Renewal Remodels & Additions needed a more specific social media marketing plan across all networks that would increase their online activity. We created their Facebook, Twitter, Google+, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Houzz accounts and created a monthly plan to post and monitor their social media presence.
Renewal Remodels & Additions receives lots of great feedback, questions, and calls from past, current, and potential clients every single week throughout their entire social mediasphere. The improved social media and web presence has directly impacted Renewal’s business, by reaching more potential customers online and encouraging them to call Renewal Remodels & Additions over their competitors.
Search Engine Optimization (SEO) is a process that affects how websites are found in search engines.
SEO is constantly changing and websites must be updated to stay relevant to search engines and to real people reading your website. We take a broad approach to SEO by optimizing the back-end of your website, blogs, social media, and other indexing sites.
There are so many pieces to SEO that increase where your site will rank with a given keyword. All of our clients’ websites have benefited from our on-page SEO treatment. For example, after two months of Marketing Puget Sound optimizing one client’s website, their website traffic increased 17%. With the improved website, the average visitor’s session time increased by 22%, which indicates visitors found what they were looking for in their search. With our online resources, we provide our clients with Overall Site Traffic Reports & Analytics on a monthly basis.
This allows us to compare the results from months prior and make any necessary tweaks to increase site traffic and generate business leads. We dig into the details of what is successful (or unsuccessful) and capitalize on that information for the next month. All of our social media posts and blogs are written with the end-consumer and your business in mind. These analytics help us write compelling content that appeals to your customers.
One of our clients, Plancich Dental, had a high bounce rate (around 50%) at a certain point. A bounce rate essentially describes how long a user stays on a certain webpage. So, a lower bounce rate means that a potential client is viewing the website longer. After implementing SEO strategies and working on inbound marketing with Plancich Dental we got their website to have a 15% bounce rate.
Creating an email newsletter that is well branded is an effective way to reach out to your current audience. Every quarter or so, send a thoughtfully laid out newsletter that gives your audience the latest from your company, introduce special offers, and treat them to unique content. When organizations provide helpful information, people are more likely to stay engaged and be a loyal customer. They will look forward to your timely emails and won’t treat them as spam. Let us help you connect with your customers throughout the year with interesting email newsletters.
