Solution

  • Search Engine Optimization (SEO)
  • Online Advertising

The Solution

Search Engine Optimization: Rank higher, gain qualified leads, increase revenues.

Beginning with Keyword Market Research, we sat down with ACS and learned what specific keywords and phrases their customers use to find what they are looking for. But before reinventing the wheel, we investigated the highly competitive market in Competitive Analysis to see what works well (and to see what doesn’t work well).

With a custom strategy in place, we started Content and Code Development.

Reengineering their site, we made ACS’s content informative and relevant. We made their code behind the scenes (site architecture, META description tags, title tags, alt attributes, etc.) cogent and appealing to Google’s search engine meta-data analysis, which helps Google connect the searcher with our client. We organized and created ACS’s content for the user on the page, for once back end changes generated new traffic, we helped ACS turn new traffic into new leads, and ultimately, new sales.
