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.

Why You Should Definitely Trade in Your Car for a New Ford at Ford Country in Las Vegas

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

You're a reasonable person. So when a trusted friend, colleague or family member questions why you're considering trading in your car rather than selling it yourself, you're willing to listen.

While you're reasonable, you're not exactly happy about taking the time to ponder these two choices. After all, you've been canvassing the new Fords for sale in Las Vegas at Ford Country and you're itching to drive one home.

Try to look at the pro-con analysis of a trading in your used car for a new or pre-owned Ford vs. privately selling your car. This analysis will hopefully encourage you to scrutinize both sides of the argument carefully – and in the end, solidify why a trade-in is the way to go.

Private auto sale advantages

  • You're likely to get more money for your used car. While an enticing prospect, be sure to consider the other side of the balance sheet: the cost of advertising and the value of your time. In general, the best candidates for quick private sales are newer, popular vehicles in excellent condition with low mileage (placing second to those new Fords for sale in Las Vegas).
  • You might find it easier to come to financial terms on the new car. Some sellers get understandably confused when they are discussing the price of two cars: the trade-in of one and the sale of another. While your balance sheet is still handy, remember that Ford Country team members are straight talkers. They abhor the stereotype of shady hustlers who try to rush and confuse buyers. They take their time, encourage questions and spell everything out in black and white.

Private used car sale disadvantages

  • You must pay to advertise your car – and the longer it doesn't sell, the more it will cost.
  • You must be available to meet with potential buyers, who might give you very little notice or suggest inconvenient meeting times.
  • You must expect no-shows.
  • You must keep your car clean at all times.
  • You must be willing to go along on test drives – or risk putting your car in the hands of an unknown driver.
  • You must be willing to subject your car to intense scrutiny, sometimes from people who profess to know “a lot about cars” but really do not.
  • You must be willing to accommodate requests for improvements or repairs, some of which might be unnecessary or unreasonable.
  • You should prepare yourself for a negotiation process that might tax your patience, especially if a potential buyer presents a low-ball offer.
  • You must reconcile yourself to an unknown time element – as well as the possibility that the new Fords for sale in Las Vegas you've been watching may be sold by the time you're ready to buy.
  • You must be prepared to process the necessary paperwork.
  • You should prepare yourself for the possibility that the buyer will return and level a grievance if he or she encounters a problem or malfunction with your vehicle.

Trade-in your car - advantages

  • Ford Country accepts car and truck trade-in’s with high mileage that may be in less-than stellar condition. Yes, the dents and rust might be deducted from the bottom line, but you don't have to sweat whether your trade-in will be accepted.
  • Ford Country conducts a trade-in assessment quickly and efficiently.
  • Ford Country makes the trade-in process abundantly fair and straightforward. Remember: our team consists of honest, trustworthy people who want to make you a member of the Ford Country family for life.
  • You can confidently walk into Ford Country, knowing you're only minutes away from making a final selection among all those new Fords for sale.

Trade-in your car - disadvantage

  • You might get less money for your vehicle, at least on paper. When you add up all the disadvantages of selling your vehicle privately – monetary and otherwise – you might agree with many Las Vegas residents who say a private sale actually doesn't pay in the end. In fact, we often hear them say, “I don't want or need the hassle."

Like you, what a private car seller really wants and need is a new Ford vehicle in their garage. At Ford Country, we're as eager as you are to make it happen. Now that you’ve weighed both options it’s clear to see trading your old vehicle for of the new Fords or premium used cars or trucks for sale in Las Vegas at Ford Country is your best bet. To schedule your trade-in meeting with one of our sales team call 702-558-8063 today!

 

Transportation to Mobilization: The Ford Transformation

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

Just over five years ago, Bill Ford, executive chairman of the Ford Motor Company and great-grandson of Henry Ford, led an earnest TED Talk conversation about the changing face of transportation. In this conversation, Ford enthusiasts and everyday drivers can catch a glimpse at the trajectory Ford plans to take. Ford examines the massive problems gridlocking pose in tomorrow's dense urban areas -- underscoring the 5+ hour commutes already occurring in fast-growing areas like Beijing -- and how that will impact our economic growth and ability to deliver necessary services like healthcare and food.

Ford's proposed solution?

"We are going to build smart cars, but we also need to build smart roads, smart parking, smart public transportation systems and more. We don't want to waste our time sitting in traffic, sitting at tollbooths or looking for parking spots. We need an integrated system that uses real time data to optimize personal mobility on a massive scale without hassle or compromises for travelers."

Five years later, consumers are starting to see the tangible impacts of this vision as Ford Motor Company rebrands itself as Ford Mobility Company.

In January, Ford made two exciting announcements about the notion of smart cars. For immediate benefits, the company entered a partnership with Amazon and the integration of their vehicles with Echo, the e-commerce giant's smart-home device. This allows drivers to request the device to remotely start the vehicle, check an electric car's charge, or to open the garage as the car turns into the neighborhood.

Ford also released more information about its development of the self-driving car, announcing they were putting 30 new autonomous test cars on the road in 2016 and a fully autonomous vehicle will be available to consumers by 2021.

City Solution Transportation Team Created

During its Investor Day in mid-September, the company disclosed it has created a new City Solution team to work with several of the major global cities to develop mobility solutions to solve those transportation problems Bill Ford noted half a decade ago. Furthermore, they have already selected the first city in which they will implement a unique problem-solving strategy: San Francisco.

The San Fransisco-Ford Motor Co. partnership involves the mobility company going beyond just vehicles to create more holistic transportation solutions. They are acquiring the city's crowd-sourced shuttle service Chariot and teaming up with bike-sharing provider Motivate. These two transportation alternatives will be linked to FordPass, the company's mobility service, and Amazon's Echo. Via one app members can be more knowledgeable about and gain greater control over their transportation choices to move faster and more efficiently in the manner the chairman expressed so many years ago.

The future of transportation is near.

Get Your Car Ready for Winter Driving

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

Tending to car maintenance can feel a lot like going on a diet. It can feel tedious while you’re in the throes of it, but it sure feels good when you see the results.

Winter car maintenance is particularly important – and can be especially rewarding. After a long summer of running your air conditioner, you may have depleted your vehicle’s coolant or AC’s pressure levels. And with a long winter ahead, knowing your battery, brakes, tires and other components are in tip-top shape will imbue you with confidence every time you turn the key in the ignition.

You might decide to tackle some car maintenance issues on your own. Or you might choose to make your life easier and bring your vehicle to the service experts at Ford Country. Either way, if you’re keeping a car maintenance checklist, you’ll want to make sure it includes a check of the following (listed here in alphabetical order):

  • Air filter, which stops dirt, debris and other outdoor contaminants from entering the engine. A clogged filter affects the smooth operation of the engine and diminishes the effectiveness of the heating and cooling system.
  • Battery and charging system, which should be tested to ensure it’s strong enough to start the engine in cold weather. At Ford Country, we check the battery cables and terminals, too.
  • Brakes, on which your life could depend. The Ford Country service experts inspect the lines, pads, shoes, rotors and drums, too.
  • Drive belts, which deliver power to the engine’s various components. The alternator delivers power, the water pump cools the engine, the power steering pump eases driving and the air conditioner compressor cools the air. None of these components would function without a drive belt.
  • Engine hoses, where it’s common to find cracks or leaks after a long, hot summer.
  • Lights, which ensure your safety (and attract the attention of law enforcement when they’re burnt out). Your vehicle has many lights requiring maintenance, including the back-up lights, brake lights, emergency flashers, headlights, taillights and turn signals.
  • Tire tread, an issue often sneaking up on vehicle owners. Uneven wear can sometimes be remedied by rotating the tires. Other times, it signals an alignment, suspension or wheel balance problem. Tire tread is super important for safety in wet or snowy driving conditions.
  • Tire pressure, which directly affects handling and stability, gas mileage and the life of tires.
  • Transmission, brake and power steering fluids, which ensure those vital systems work steadily and efficiently.
  • Wiper blades and washer fluid, which many people understandably don’t fully appreciate until they perform poorly – or leave them in a blurry situation.

Leave Your Vehicle in the Care of the Service experts at Ford Country

With a list this long, you might well decide to leave winter car maintenance to the service experts at Ford Country, especially if you have several vehicles in the family. Besides, we go over your Ford vehicle so thoroughly we’re bound to find – and fix – minor problems before they develop into major and costlier problems potentially leaving you stranded at the side of the road.

If tending to car maintenance feels too much likegoing on a diet, plan to stop by our very own Mustang Sally’s Country Diner for All-American Breakfasts, great sandwiches, ½ burgers and more!

Get More with the Redesigned Ford Super Duty for Sale

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

From the Ford Super Duty's first unveiling in 1998 to 2016, these heavy-duty pickup trucks have gone largely unchanged. And truck aficionados haven't minded. This is the truck of trucks, boasting a 43% block of the US's heavy-duty pickup market, meaning nearly half of the country's population who are looking to tow or haul massive loads choose a Ford Super Duty pickup.

But times are changing. In 1998, gasoline cost a mere $1.15 a gallon and excess weight was no problem. After 18 years, the time for a redesign is here to make every Ford Super Duty for sale more attractive than ever. This massive overhaul includes new base materials, new frame, powertrain upgrades, a myriad of new technologies and all at the affordable price Ford truck buyers expect.

The Ford Super Duty Pickup Changes

The Super Duty redesign begins at its core. A stronger and stiffer high-strength steel frame carries the military-grade aluminum alloy body that makes up the truck's boxes and cabs. This body upgrade shaves off an impressive 350 pounds from its previous design, yet it boasts greater towing and hauling capabilities with two new engine choices. These engines, paired with the weight loss, enable the new pickup models to be more energy efficient than their predecessors. Plus, with an increased fuel tank capacity of 48 gallons, 2017 Ford Super Duty drivers can go further and get more done before the need to stop and re-fuel

Because for many Super Duty pickup owners this is their transportation and their office, Ford engineers added an incredible amount of new storage capabilities. Drivers will enjoy a new lockable under-seat rear storage box, more lids on various compartments and even a unique moveable cupholder for space flexibility.

New camera systems are included to make driving a heavy-duty truck easier than ever. This includes an all-access 360-degree camera that provides a split-screen view around the vehicle, forward-facing 180-degree camera to assist in pulling out from blind drivers, cargo bed camera mounted by the brake light, trailer camera that can zoom in on the hitch and even an extra trailer camera that can be hooked up and synced with any attached trailer.H2: Ford Super Duty For Sale @ Ford Country

And these features are just the beginning of what the new 2017 Ford Super Duty, for sale at Ford Country Las Vegas, has to offer. This will be the best version of America's favorite pickup truck, built for the current age and ready to withstand another 18 years. Learn more and test drive a Ford Super Duty for sale by calling 702-558-8063.

Advice on Choosing a Transmission for Ford Vehicle- Manual Vs. Automatic

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

Have you ever driven a car with a manual transmission?

Many drivers today can't say they have, but plenty of car manufacturers still offer this option, and for good reason. If you're shopping for a new Ford vehicle, you're in luck because this company makes cars with both manual and automatic transmission options, which allows you, as a consumer, to make the car-buying decision best for your unique needs.

If you're on the edge about your decision to buy a manual or automatic transmission, here are some pros and cons of each to help you decide:

Sportiness

Historically, sporty cars come complete with manual transmissions, giving the driver full power of the car's performance. There was a time when cars with manual transmissions were far faster than their automatic transmission counterparts. Although technology has largely changed the speed at which we travel, many owners of sports cars still prefer a manual transmission that puts the power in the palm of their hands.

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT350 is an awesome example of a sporty ride that does well with a manual transmission. This athletic automobile is chic and racetrack-capable (if you're planning on taking your heat to the approved streets.)

Fuel Efficiency

During the early days of the automatic transmission, manual vehicles were far more fuel efficient. Today's technologies, however, emphasize optimal gas mileage, no matter how your transmission is handled. Transmission hybrids rule today's car lots, allowing drivers to shift between automatic and manual drive as they see fit.

The Ford Focus has an optional automatic transmission; great for drivers who are looking for the best of both worlds, and this compact car tends to rate quite well in terms of overall fuel efficiency.

For folks who focus on a manual transmission, the Ford Focus RS is a monster machine whose capabilities are only meant for a stick shift.

Ease of Use

Drivers who aren't accustomed to a clutch may find themselves frustrated when rush hour arrives. Although seasoned stick shift drivers don't often notice the difference in bumper-to-bumper traffic, people who are used to automatic transmissions often fall prey to irritability when in a jam.

If you're someone who finds yourself sitting in traffic or stopping at signs on every corner, you might find an automatic transmission to be more convenient for your needs. City drivers who experience a lot of stop-and-go, whether it's caused by interstate stoppage or inner-city signage, often prefer automatic transmissions to take care of the shifting for them.

Each Ford vehicle is designed to meet its new owner's needs. Automatic and manual transmissions are each great in their own right, and your personal lifestyle may ultimately dictate the best decision for your future transmission.

Before you buy your next Ford vehicle, make sure you test drive both automatic and manual transmission options. Come see our team at Ford Country in Las Vegas, and let us help you find your next automobile. Call 702-558-8063 to schedule your test drive today!

WSI Adds Ninth Community to SEO Project for MorningStar

Bob Peterson - Tuesday, December 13, 2016

 

WSI Digital Marketing has recently launched SEO efforts for MorningStar Assisted Living and Memory Care of Boulder, part of the MorningStar network of over 20 senior living communities located in the Western US.

Previously, WSI has optimized the web pages of the Arcadia, Arrowhead, Fountain Hills, Sparks, Ft. Collins, Billings, Jordan and Bear Creek locations and all are showing excellent results. Based on these results, MorningStar has been continuously expanding its engagement with WSI, and is likely to do so in the future as well.

The latest community to benefit from WSI’s SEO is MorningStar of Boulder which, of course, is located in Boulder Colorado, just North of Denver.

For the on-page optimization, we focused on 2 pages on the MorningStar site. Since each community offers a different mix of services and focused geographic areas, the keywords mapped to the pages differ across communities. You can see the pages optimized for the Boulder community here:

http://www.morningstarseniorliving.com/communities/morningstar-of-boulder/

http://www.morningstarseniorliving.com/communities/morningstar-of-boulder/senior-living-communities/

With the SEO optimized pages now up on the site the off page optimization is beginning. Initial off page strategy includes citation building for the community as well as an intensive blogging effort. These high quality blogs will be syndicated to WordPress, Weebly, Blogger and Tumblr.

Each month of the SEO implementation will be monitored and carefully tracked along with the other communities. Key metrics that will be measured include links, rankings, organic visits and leads from organic visitors.

We fully expect to see the same results for Boulder that we are seeing at the other eight MorningStar communities.
