Brainstorm Strategic Marketing is a boutique, full-service, strategic marketing company who offer ‘big company’ experience without the big company fees.
One of their most frequently requested services is Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). SEO is the process of maximizing the number of visitors to a particular website by ensuring that the site appears high on the list of results returned by a search engine.
The goal of SEO is to connect with customers when they are actively searching for a product or service, and convert them to a sale. This requires a visible position in search engine search results, and a website that persuades the customer to go ahead with the purchase. A high Google score, low bounce rate, and increased conversions are the metrics to monitor.
Many businesses try to improve their discoverability with a Google AdWords campaign. A common – and costly – mistake is to run the AdWords campaign as a one off activity, which can have limited success.
Effective SEO requires an understanding of how search engines work along with a tailored approach for each campaign. Tactics can range from checking for broken links, errors and crawl issues though to keyword research, improved content, mobile responsiveness and backlinks from reputable sites. The key to increasing website traffic is to integrate SEO with relevant content and social media marketing.
These three stories demonstrate Brainstorm’s SEO expertise, and their ability to consistently deliver outstanding results that increase client revenues:
Sales double within six months
“I was amazed at Brainstorm’s ability to transform my often random thoughts into actual working strategy and as a result, have seen our sales increase two fold in only 6 months! I thoroughly recommend Brainstorm Integrated Marketing to any business seeking the ultimate marketing solution.”
Graham Brebner, Founder, Aquatiere
Aquatiere is a UK company that manufacture water filters and water treatment units for both domestic and commercial premises.
Brainstorm were recommended to Aquatiere by an existing client. Founder Graham Brebner was immediately impressed with Brainstorm’s passionate approach to all aspects of digital marketing, and asked Brainstorm to redevelop the Aquatiere website.
The challenge for Brainstorm was to keep Aquatiere’s core product, the Saltless Water softener and Water Filter, visible on the front page of Google search results during the website redevelopment process and for the long term.
Brainstorm worked with Aquatiere to improve the website and develop a tailored approach to SEO that would increase sales and grow their business.
The result was a fully optimised website full of relevant and regularly updated content, amplified by targeted campaigns across multiple channels including:
- Google shopping
- Blogs and influencer promotions
- Email campaigns
- Lead generation
- Seasonal and product positioning campaigns
- A/B testing
Brainstorm’s efforts kept Aquatiere at the top of Google ranking, so it was easy for potential customers to discover Aquatiere products via Google shopping, AdWords and organic search.
Aquatiere is delighted to have seen a two fold increase in sales within six months, and will continue working with Brainstorm to explore A / B testing to increase revenues.
First page google ranking within two weeks
Statham Gill Davies Solicitors (SGD) is a medium sized commercial law firm based in London. They specialize in music, entertainment and media.
SGD needed to improve their website, and contracted a third party to deliver the redevelopment work. Following the redevelopment, the website dropped from page one of Google search results, reducing the number of incoming client enquiries.
SGD Davies turned to Brainstorm to rectify the situation.
Brainstorm carried out an SEO audit, where they assessed the website against a 60 point checklist to ensure that it was fully optimized to meet Google’s rules for search result rankings.
The next step was to carry out research to understand the most commonly used and relevant search terms. Typical phrases like “music solicitor” and “music lawyer London” were tested. Brainstorm adjusted the web site in line with their insights to boost search result ranking.
Within two weeks, the SGD website was back on page one of Google search results, and client enquiries increased accordingly.
