223% Increase in New Users in 6 Months
In the beginning, we comprehensively researched the competition in the accounting industry. We checked out what SMG’s competitors were up to, analysed what people were reading and talking about, and updated similar types of content to bring a flow of traffic to their website.
Next, we worked on On-Page and Off-page SEO to boost organic traffic. We implemented other strategies such as using eye-catching headlines and graphics, backlinking and social bookmarking.
The result? Organic Traffic Growth was at its peak and new users increased by 223% and SMG’s website Rank was much more improved with increased Visibility compared to 6 months earlier.
286.30% Increase in Website Visits In 6 Months
The result was evident in 6 months! We generated a maximum increase in website visits by 286.30% and phone calls by 260% in 6 months and an overall positive outcome which resulted in more client conversions.
236% Increase in Search Views, 85% Increase in Direct Searches in 6 Months
SMG’s main goal was to increase their brand awareness and develop a reputable image and this result can be seen where their business appeared much more in Google Search Views, Direct Searches and Discovery Searches within a 6 months time period
We Successfully Generated More ROI by
Keyword Ranking – We targeted keywords that relate to the nature of SMG’s accounting services. We also identified Geo-specific keywords to target specific locations that the services are provided in.
Visibility – Our site gained more visibility in search engines. Better visibility resulted in more clicks and eventually SMG began to receive more phone calls from potential clients looking for assistance with their accounting and taxation. As you can see, Visibility was significantly increased by 25% with an increase of 37% of Estimated Traffic.
Social Media Growth
We developed other marketing strategies for SMG using organic and paid strategies such as:
Photo Sharing on Google for more visibility.
Regular posting on Social media platforms with attractive content and graphics to drive traffic. In this way their page likes and social media growth on Facebook and Instagram increased over a span of 6 months. A very high social media growth of 554% was seen on Instagram and 584% on Facebook.
Our strategic marketing plan increased the number of Organic Clicks on any URL of our client’s website when it appeared in search results.
We also improved Impressions and the Average Ranking Position of the website URLs for queries.
We know how high the Cost-per-click (CPC) can be for any business these days but due to our excellent organic traffic generation, we could save SMG’s budget and cut down on their expenditure on Paid campaigns.
