Lincoln & Mazda of Olympia retains WSI as their Trusted Digital Advisor for SEO & PPC

Bob Peterson - Sunday, February 19, 2017


Lincoln & Mazda of Olympia is new and used car dealership serving the greater Olympia and Tacoma area. Conveniently located in the Olympia Auto Mall, this dealership has trusted their SEO and Paid Advertising campaigns to WSI since August of 2014.

For 2 years following their initial engagement, the website continued to improve in search ranking and the PPC campaigns evolved with the website content improvements to offer a maximum conversion rate at a significantly reduced cost per click over previous campaign years.

Due to some unexpected changes with their platform and hosting provider, Lincoln & Mazda of Olympia were required to move their extensive new and used car website and inventory to a new platform in July of 2016. The move was extremely disruptive to their online presence. They dropped significantly in ranking and their paid advertising campaigns suffered as a result.

WSI came to the rescue with a plan to correct the technical issues surrounding the move. Proper redirects were implemented, broken links corrected, and most of the blog articles were restored including the links to their offsite properties (Facebook, Twitter, Google+, WordPress, Blogger, and Tumblr).

In addition to adjusting the optimization on their prime website pages for the best keyword phrases:

new cars

used cars

car dealership

car repair

vehicle financing

WSI built and optimized some new pages to help searchers find the online Lincoln & Mazda new and used car inventory by vehicle type:

Our Vehicles

Sedans

Convertibles

Hatchbacks

Minivans

SUVs

Trucks

Cars Under $10K

New Car Specials

Used Car Specials

The Lincoln Line Up

The Mazda Line Up

PPC campaigns were all adjusted to take advantage of the new pages and blogging will resume next month to promote these new keywords and pages going forward. New conversion goals have been added and the results are already amazing. January alone showed a 22% increase in Overall Traffic, a 32% increase in Organic Traffic, and 25% increase in Paid Traffic. Conversions were up 30%, 44%, and 26% respectively.

Executive Employment Lawyer Engages WSI For Web Development and SEO

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, February 07, 2017

 

Robert Adelson, Esq., a well-known Boston business and contracts law attorney has engaged with WSI for SEO services for his executive employment law practice. For over 20 years, Attorney Adelson has provided his clients with outstanding legal representation in areas of employment agreement, executive compensation, equity and separation matters. A frequent speaker and author, Rob has written numerous articles in the areas of employment agreements, non-competes and restrictive covenants, compensation, stock, stock options and executive equity terms. His articles have been published in The Culpepper Letter,Family Business, Boston Business Journal, Genetic Engineering News and Mass High Tech: The Journal of New England Technology. In addition, Rob’s work as an executive employment attorney in Boston has been recognized in the Boston Globe, the Boston Herald and other publications.

The goal of the WSI engagement is lead generation. WSI conducted a careful analysis of the web presence and digital marketing activities performed by his previous marketing providers. The results showed that he has a 12-page responsive website, a 70-page older non-mobile-friendly website, a free Wordpress blog with hundreds of pages, a Findlaw profile and four highlights, and a monthly e-newsletter campaign that drives traffic to the Wordpress blog. There was much duplicate content in these web properties and a strategy for content marketing, link building and driving website traffic was lacking.

WSI’s digital marketing solution involves first rebuilding the 70-page website into a responsive website that complies with Google’s mobile friendly standards. Responsive websites enjoy improved Google search results rankings. The pages on the 12 page website were then redirected to the new website, preserving the links. Duplicate content was cleaned up.

Next, we performed comprehensive keyword research on the subject of executive employment and selected specific keywords that were then mapped to the relevant pages of the website. The keywords focus on what Attorney Adelson does, as well as what he is, i.e., executive employment lawyer. Then, employing advanced on-page optimization techniques, the pages were optimized for the selected keywords and their stems. Here are several examples of keywords that have been optimized on the executiveemploymentattorney.com site:

Executive Compensation Lawyer

Non-Compete Agreement Attorney

Severance Agreement Lawyer

Lawyer for Wrongful Termination

With the on-page optimization complete, the SEO will now focus on improving the popularity of the new SEO pages through a comprehensive content marketing and local SEO program. This program will include registering the website in local business directories, posting on its Google+ page, writing new articles, posting Rob’s speaker slides on Slideshare, and increasing his positive customer reviews. In addition, monthly blog posts will be written and syndicated to blogs established on the popular blogging platforms Tumblr, WordPress, Blogger, and Weebly. Monthly newsletters will include landing pages on the website to drive traffic to the website.

Each month of the SEO implementation will be monitored and carefully tracked. Key metrics that will be measured each month include links, rankings, organic visits and leads from organic visitors. We expect to achieve significantly increased lead generation rates from these SEO efforts.

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

 

AS Dog Sports is known for being the premier indoor dog sports and dog training facility in the Scottsdale/ Phoenix area. They are an APDT affiliated facility which is staffed by certified dog trainers who are master in the philosophy of positive training methods. With over 65 dog training classes per week being offered, as well as services such as Dog Board & Train, Dog Walking services, in home Pet sitting and a Dog Training Academy to train people who are interested in learning how to be a dog trainer, AZ Dog Sports has just about everything for the dog lover!

AZ Dog Sports is not only competing with dog industry websites and big chains for many of their services, but also they compete with individual providers working out of their homes, as well as online training academies. This makes the local digital presence essential for their success!

They came to eSpark Marketing with two specific goals for their online presence-

Upon examination of their website and their current SERP positions, we constructed an SEO strategy to focus on each service area individually, starting with their most coveted buyer persona; the person interested in learning how to become a dog trainer or improve their dog training skills for an occupation or hobby within the dog industry

Afterwards, we remapped the website, rewrote content, conducted on page optimization and off page optimization in order to achieve more traffic and increase conversions. Besides search engine optimization, our plan also included pieces of social media ad campaigns, social meeting training and improved analytics reporting.

That new innovative marketing took off! In the first year of business for the AZ Dog Smart Academy (newly expanded name), the marketing brought in dozens of new students and introduced a whole new generation of certified dog professionals to the valley of the sun! If you’d like more information about AZ Dog Sports or AZ Dog Smart Academy, please follow our blogs on Blogger, TumblrWordPress or Weebly.

WSI in Ottawa Removes Traffic Barriers for ReferralMortgages.com

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, January 31, 2017

 

ReferralMortgages.com are expert Ottawa mortgage agents who strive to make the mortgage process an easy and rewarding process for their clients. When the client contacted WSI eStrategies in Ottawa, they had a new site but they weren’t getting traffic. Frustrated and fed up, they hired WSI to get the work done to remove the traffic barriers that were hindering their success.

After deep analysis, WSI eStrategies found that the new site was not passing Google’s mobile-friendly test and search engines could not properly index the pages in the site. This was causing the lack of traffic for ReferralMortgages.com.

The solution was to move the site to WordPress CMS with responsive web design as well as ensuring proper on page and best practice SEO fundamentals were implemented. Once the design work was finished, the site passed the mobile-friendly test with no further issues. Local SEO strategies were applied to five key pages and WSI implemented a content marketing strategy to improve engagement. Despite the site mapping, local SEO efforts and content marketing being launched only a few short months ago, SERPS are already showing vast improvement with one of our targeted keywords ranking on the first page! ReferralMortages.co received their first ever online lead only 1 month after hiring WSI.

Finding a mortgage in Ottawa and surrounding areas that has terms and rates that work in favour of the applicant is challenging at best. ReferralMortgages.com works for the applicant, not a financial institution, often getting the best possible outcomes for their clients. Some of the optimized pages highlighting their services include:

First Time Homebuyers

Commercial Mortgages

Investment Properties

Bad Credit Mortgages

Both WSI and ReferralMortgages.com look foreword to a long and profitable relationship that will help brand this modern company and give it the recognition it well deserves.

Denver Pergola Systems Introduces New Aluminum Louvered Pergola System To Denver

Bob Peterson - Monday, January 30, 2017

WSI Digital Marketing Campaign Is Cornerstone Effort To New Market Launch

Denver Pergola Systems has become the exclusive dealer for Arcadia™ Luxury Louvered Roof systems in Colorado concentrating on sales and custom installs of pergolas for commercial venues as well as residential pergolas.

With a launch in a new market where traditional wooden pergola and shade structures are the norm, there is a steep branding curve to this relatively new, but highly innovative shade structure system. The first marketing challenge WSI is providing for Denver Pergola is increasing their SEO efforts. Implementing a strategy that will increase visibility and brand recognition in a new market are top priorities for this company.

With such a unique and new product, WSI got creative with the keyword research.

  • We determined “What types of other products compare to the function of a pergola?”
  • We examined the natural vernacular people of this region use.
  • We evaluated what the competition was using for their websites.
  • We did actual geo-located (via proxy server) searches for possible keywords, and we researched the content that garnered the top positions in SERPs.

As with all our SEO campaigns, WSI developed buyer’s personas to identify, not just demographics, but buyer behaviors, determining what are prospective customers’ interests? What kinds of content do they find appealing? What are the motivational factors that would drive them to make such a big investment in their outdoor living spaces? Along with a high degree of visual elements, WSI designed its campaign to provide content that Denver Pergola’s buyer personas will find helpful, interesting, and compelling enough to click through and convert.

The marketing project also includes local elements. While Denver Pergola can and will service the entire Colorado area, their focus is Denver. So, it is important to make certain that all NAP throughout the Internet is correct and accurate.

With such a visual, high-end product, WSI also is utilizing all the possible social channels and off site platforms. We set up various channels to highlight the product as well as provide content relevant to our buyer personas on Google Plus, Blogger, Wordpress, Pinterest, Weebly and Tumblr.

In the six months since starting the Denver Pergola Systems campaign, the URL www.denverpergolas.com has reached page one in SERP for a number of high search volume outdoor living industry keywords. For a superior organic SEO approach, contact WSI and discuss the conversion opportunities that await you.

Bob Peterson - Monday, January 30, 2017

Macintosh HD:private:var:folders:xd:23lry18x3gl187blkh63tnyw0000gn:T:TemporaryItems:imgres.jpg

StoneSense is the top fabricator $ supplier in the Ottawa area for natural stone countertops in granite, marble, quartz and onyx. Looking to improve their results in the search engines and increase traffic to their website, they contracted with WSI eStrategies in Ottawa

 

The master stone cutters of StoneSense are a cut above others in the area, not only choosing the best stone products for their Ottawa and area clients, but handling each piece no less than three times as they see it through cutting, finishing and installation. Rounding out their selection of quality products are an impressive collection of porcelain and stone tiles as well as a wide selection of mosaic materials in glass and natural stone.

After a thorough analysis of StoneSense’s site and keyword research to determine the best search phrases, WSI eStrategies in Ottawa focused on five key pages to target for a local SEO campaign:

Natural Stone Countertops

Granite Countertops Ottawa

Marble Countertops Ottawa

Quartz Countertops Ottawa

Tiles Stores in Ottawa

All five pages were optimized with keyword-rich content and the necessary technical SEO fundamentals needed to ensure search engines could crawl and gather intent behind each page. A content marketing strategy was developed and used as a link-building strategy and enhanced SEO. After just five months, two competitive keywords have been brought to the first page of Google search results and the others have gone from no rank, to the second page! Since engaging WSI eStrategies, the traffic on the client’s site has increased by 500 percent.

In order to really capitalize on our current success, StoneSense and WSI have decided to rebuild and redesign the website in order to add the necessary conversion elements to bring the best possible ROI to the table. We look forward to a newly redesigned website launch in March 2017.

Global Specialty Lamp Manufacturer Retains WSI for Third year of SEO

Bob Peterson - Monday, January 23, 2017

LightSources is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of UVC, specialty fluorescent and sign lamps of all kinds. Based in Orange, Connecticut, they serve both large and small OEMs with custom lamps designed and engineered for a large range of applications. Starting in 2014, LightSources engaged WSI to optimize their existing Drupal website for 35 keywords.

Over the last 2 years, the LightSources engagement with WSI has expanded, including a new WordPress web site, and additional sections of optimized pages for UV air treatment systems, and ballast water treatment systems applications.

These new application areas are part of LightSources ongoing strategy of assisting OEMs in creating new products where the demand is increasing. For example, there is a growing need among manufactures for enhanced treatment of exhaust gas emissions. In China, manufacturers and even restaurants are coming under increasing regulatory pressure to clean up air emissions. To that end, WSI created a new section of optimized pages for these new opportunities as follows:

UV air purification systems

Industrial air purification systems

UVC air purification systems

UV light air purification systems

Industrial air cleaning systems

Another area of increasing demand driven by regulation is ballast water treatment. The MEPC (Marine Environment Protection Committee), a subsidiary group of the IMO (International Maritime Organization) is globally enforcing new standards for ballast water treatment systems for ships effective September 8, 2017. The current standard, referred to as the Ballast Water Management Convention, was adopted in 2004 following initiatives by the IMO to establish procedures and standards for managing and controlling ballast water for ships. As the new regulations come into effect demand for products using LightSources UVC lamps is set to increase. In order to capitalize on that demand, WSI created the following set of pages:

USCG approved ballast water treatment systems

Ballast water treatment methods

Ballast water treatment technologies

Water ballast treatment system

With the combined strength of LightSources in the U.S. and LightTech in Europe, LightSources is the global leader in the germicidal lamp industry. In addition to their high-quality standard lamps, they also custom design products for OEMs of any size that meet almost any need. Contact LightSources to learn more.

Resolve to Optimize Your Search Campaign in 2017

Bob Peterson - Wednesday, December 28, 2016

In 2017 and beyond, digital marketing is only expected to continue to grow in its prevalence and importance. Businesses of all sizes can benefit from a New Year’s resolution to optimize search campaigns. Search advertising might include boosting organic search results, using pay-per-click ads, and increasing social presence; each of these tasks requires dedicated attention and careful planning to achieve visibility and success. As you plan to take on these strategies for search advertising, use the following guidelines to ensure that you see the results you want throughout the coming year.

Set Clear Goals

Not every business will share the same goals for a search marketing campaign, so it is essential to customize your strategy with clear, measurable goals from the get-go. Start with a broad goal such as raising newsletter subscriptions, boosting sales, or increasing brand awareness. From here, you can narrow down the more specific goals that will lead you to your key objectives.

Redesign Your Landing Pages

No matter what you want to accomplish with your search campaign, you will want to get your website in shape before making substantial investments in AdWords and other advertising services. Quality landing pages are a must for any search campaign, whether you are relying on paid or organic results. Every keyword should be paired with a unique and informative landing page that will grab consumer attention, deliver the information they want, and provide an actionable conclusion.

Do Your Research

Even if you have an existing search campaign, you will want to take the time to research keywords and current marketing trends, as these steps will ensure that your campaign is current and effective. If you are just beginning a search campaign, a lot of research may be needed to get started, and this can be facilitated by professional marketing experts who can weigh the cost and benefits of potential keywords for your business. It can be tempting to just opt for the most popular keywords regardless of cost, but you might not rank for these search terms without some established authority through your site.

Balance Paid and Organic Search Campaigns

Most successful search campaigns will achieve a balance between paid search and organic search. Paid search results are the most visible on the page—even more so since Google updated their SERP design to include even more paid results per page—but organic search results are often viewed as more trustworthy by consumers. Investing on both fronts can help you see the best from both worlds, achieving optimal exposure for your business.


Whether you want a fully managed search campaign or you simply need assistance with the technical components of AdWords, we can help you see the results you want for search advertising in 2017. Call us today to discuss your business’s digital marketing needs.
