orgvue came to us with the great goal of … expanding its international digital footprint, targeting the U.S. and UK markets, and driving traffic and conversions through the newly created website.

OK, now with a strategic goal set. How did we achieve this?

We knew it would require a campaign that would harmonize their approach to searches and serve the purpose of driving not only leads, but qualified leads as well as actual meetings and new customers.

What did we do?

Our strategy had several directions.

Here goes:

1. To launch the organization’s website in May 2020, we integrated ourselves into the project team, developing a taxonomy and a funnel keyword strategy, and working closely with the client and his external development agency.

2. Next was a paid search! In addition to restructuring and optimizing your Google and Bing campaigns, we also went a step further by calculating the values ​​for each different type of lead and entering that data back into Google Ads to enable smart bidding to maximize conversion value on a limited budget.

3. You can’t get a strategy without content and creativity, right? The two teams worked together to create dynamic content landing pages to reduce bounce rates, meet the needs of each individual search query, improve Google Ad Quality Score to reduce CPCs, and get the most sales leads for sales plans. process.

4. And last but certainly not least, we combined our SEO and paid media data to make informed strategic decisions to increase overall search visibility and manage MQLs, meetings and closed revenue.

Our results …

The moment you’ve been waiting for! The plan was certain, but what was the result of its implementation?

Orgue organic traffic increased by 26% in 2020, the number of organic demo requests increased by 109%, while paid traffic increased by 173% and paid demo requests by 489%!

Not bad, right? There is more.

Most importantly, combined SEO and paid closed revenue increased by 168%, which we believe is a much more important measure than the increase in traffic and demo queries …
