Understanding Key Data & Creating a Clear Path to Success

  • To create a strategic and effective SEO plan, it was important to understand the current state of Canteen's online presence. This includes technical strengths & weaknesses of their website, as well as opportunities for content improvement.

 

  • Auditing Canteen's on-page and off-page data, keyword opportunities, target audience, and more helped us to find areas for improvement, opportunities to create new content or targeting, and to better understand Canteen as a whole.

 

  • Armed with an understanding of not only who we should be targeting, but how to improve their current online presence helped us to create a solid SEO plan for moving forward.

  • To drive more leads to their website, Canteen needed a strategic plan for utilizing Google Search and Google Display ads.

 

  • By integrating target keywords and speaking the language of their target audience, Greenstone constructed Search and Display ad content to attract quality leads.

 

  • For a higher ROI, it was important to also take into account the locations, ages, occupations, and interests of Canteen's target audience. This, combined with optimized content and attractive design got Canteen well on their way to successful SEM campaigns.

Landing Pages Built to Convert

  • When visitors are presented with relevant content they are more likely to convert. If they click on an ad about Markets, they expect to find more information about Markets on the page to which they are directed. Designing and developing landing pages that clearly promote the services mentioned in the Google Search and Display ads removes friction, clearing the path to conversion.

 

  • Relevant content is one thing, but a clear plan is icing on the cake. Adding direct calls-to action throughout the landing pages remind the user what to do next, and a "Getting Started Is Easy" section at the bottom of each page clearly defines their path to success.

 

  • A message their target audience understands, attractive design, direct calls-to-action, and a clear plan to success all create a user-experience made to convert.

RESULT:

Canteen already had an updated website with optimized content and clear message to increase conversions and create brand ambassadors. Now, with the addition of effective marketing campaigns, even more leads will be brought to their site. This will result in more conversions.

“As the owner of multiple businesses I’ve had a unique evolution with web designers. Ultimately, in web design, you get what you pay for and as a young entrepreneur, I learned that with cheap web design you end up eventually discarding the project. We chose Greenstone Media for our media and design work, and have been extremely happy with everything they’ve produced… from the magazine ads to online graphics and web design work. I highly recommend Greenstone for your media and web design needs.”

They were also patient with my "web ignorance" and didn't try to "sell" me a package like a lot of the other thumbtack pros and companies I got quotes from. Thanks to the Greenstone team for helping me with my marketing!"
