Unlike the old days, the internet is the major source of information modern consumers can depend on to make many decisions in their day-to-day lives. No matter how complex the buying
process or how specialized the market, consumers are not likely to overlook the internet when it comes to collecting data or information.
The problem with TUF-BAR (previously known as BP Composites) was that they never thought of promoting themselves with online consumers, and so they didn't have a good-looking website, a good online presence, nor did they have any online marketing campaigns deployed to engage people, with the potential to become their future customers. Not good.
After a thorough analysis of their situation, we thought it necessary to re-brand TUF-BAR and build them a fresh website, to give TUF-BAR a more professional touch and feel. Having that done, it was also necessary to develop a focused, actionable, and tailor-made marketing strategy to generate relevant traffic to the website and improve their sales and bottom line.
From a branding perspective, we recreated TUF-BAR's logo to make it more compatible with their business model. We rebuilt their website to give it a more professional look and feel, and incorporated elements that were essential from both the standpoint of search engines and their target audience.
From a marketing perspective, we planned, developed and launched a holistic marketing initiative that encompassed various organic and paid marketing approaches including SEO, PPC, Social Media Management and Content Marketing. The key objectives were to generate traffic, maximize ROI and increase brand awareness among the target audience.
Reach First brought their URL to the most valuable keyword “fiberglass rebar” on the top 2nd and 3rd positions in organic searches on two major search engines, world-wide: Google and
Bing respectively. For TUF-BAR, this changed everything, and they could now start acquiring customers anywhere in the world, and did, thanks to our efforts in connecting them.
