WSI Retained by WCM Industries for Fourth Year of Digital Marketing Services

Ken Bowden - Tuesday, January 19, 2016

Watco drains and Woodford Faucets

WCM Industries, the manufacturer of Watco drains and Woodford faucets, has retained WSI to continue for a fourth year of digital marketing services for their e-commerce site called Eagle Mountain Products

WSI was originally retained by Eagle Mountain Products back in late 2012. The initial project included creating 58 SEO landing pages optimized for keywords with volume of over 80,000 searches per month. The on-page optimization was followed up with organic link building and blog posting on popular blogging platforms. This activity led to huge growth in organic visitors, and a very satisfied client.

Phase two of the SEO, which began in June of 2014, focused on optimizing the e-commerce site’s category and sub-category pages. In all, 199 of these pages were optimized with new URLs, Title Tags and Meta Descriptions.

In 2016, we will be targeting repeat purchasers of the Woodford Model Y34 yard hydrant repair kit and the Watco 924 Innovator flexible bathtub waste. This will be a highly targeted campaign of SEO link building to promote these two successful best sellers.

Activities will include linking back to the targeted pages with Watco blog posts at Blogger, WordPress and Google+ focused on bathroom repair and improvement and Wordford posts at Blogger, WordPress and Google+ with an emphasis on gardening and the benefits of yard hydrants. In addition, relevant posts for Eagle Mountain Products will be posted to Tumblr and a Google+ brand page.

We look forward to a continued partnership with WCM Industries and Eagle Mountain Products.

WSI is one of the largest digital marketing agencies in the world, with over 1,000 offices in 81 countries.  Born in 1995, at the birth of the Internet, we have always been, and always will be, an entirely digital marketing agency.  We understand that no two businesses are the same, so we take the time to understand our client’s organization and build campaigns that help achieve their goals.

Digital Marketing Consulting combined with Naturopathic Medicine is a winning combination

Ken Bowden - Monday, November 30, 2015

Rockwood Natuarl Medicine Clinic Scottsdale

With the help of the marketing experts at WSI, Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic has launched an online marketing and search engine optimization (SEO) campaign to boost its web presence. Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic offers functional, integrative care for the whole family with a unique combination of alternative medicine in Scottsdale practiced alongside conventional medical care.

The Phoenix naturopathic doctors at Rockwood offer top-notch services with a focus on wellness and preventative care, their caring, highly-skilled staff addressing and eliminating the root cause of issues rather than simply managing symptoms. Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic offers everything from routine lab work and wellness exams to homeopathy, acupuncture, and chelation, treating asthma and allergies, cardiology, systemic diseases, men’s and women’s health issues, pediatric and geriatric concerns, and more. Its proven treatment therapies and unique, interdisciplinary approach to naturopathic medicine are sure to get the attention of the Phoenix and Scottsdale web community.

To improve Rockwood’s digital marketing strategy and help introduce one of their new Scottsdale naturopathic physicians, Dr Shawna Eischens, WSI began by performing a competitive analysis and keyword research to determine the best way to profitably generate leads. WSI then began the process of optimizing content around chosen keywords to increase Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic’s presence on Google and other search engines, drive more leads through their website, and boost the naturopathic medicine practice’s clientele. WSI also added to Rockwood’s social media arsenal optimizing existing profiles including their WordPress, Tumblr, Blogger, Weebly and individual naturopath blog.

WSI also improved and enhanced Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic’s existing website, optimizing content to boost its ranking in online keyword searches using Search Engine Optimization (SEO) techniques, as well shared content to maximize Rockwood’s audience. In the three months since the start of the campaign, Rockwood Natural Medicine Clinic has experienced an increase in search traffic by 50 percent year over year! That number is only expected to rise as WSI’s new marketing efforts broaden its consumer base.

Conversion Rate Optimization: The Key to Turning Leads into Buyers

Ken Bowden - Thursday, October 15, 2015

 

Conversion Rate Optimization: The Key to Turning Leads into Buyers

Congratulations!  Your marketing campaign has proven successful and you are getting leads to your website. The problem now is that you’re not seeing a high enough ratio of leads turn into buyers, right? That can be fixed, and that’s where conversion rate optimization comes into play.

What is Conversion Rate Optimization?

Conversion rate optimization (also known as CRO) is a method for boosting the percentage of leads to your website that actually turn (or convert) into paying customers. In some cases, it may just be to entice more people to take a specific action, even if it isn’t necessarily a sale.

In short, you need to make sure that you not only have traffic and leads, but that your leads are as targeted to your chosen audience as possible. It’s a waste of your efforts if you entice 1,000 people to click through to your website selling a specific product – if only 25 prospects in the audience expect to buy it. It’s also a waste of your money.

Why Your Conversion Rate is Important

Higher conversion rates mean a better return on your investment. You will allot a certain dollar budget to your marketing campaigns each month and you of course expect that money to bring results. It’s ultimately cheaper to find more targeted leads than it is to simply find more leads. In other words, quality over quantity is important.

Improving Your Conversion Rate

There are a number of things you can do to increase your conversion rate. As with most marketing elements, you’re going to want to test each campaign and see which performs best.

  • A/B Testing is when you run your campaigns towards two similar yet different landing pages. If each gets the same amount of traffic but one results in 100 sales and the other 200, you’ll know which one is the winner. Keep the ones with the most conversions and attempt to improve on that result for your next A/B test.
  • Clarify your value proposition in your marketing content. Chances are, you are probably not the only one selling a product like yours. Your potential customers want to know why they should buy from you instead of seller-X on another website and will want to see what value you can provide them. What makes your offer clearly different? At least one element needs to exceed what your competitors are offering.
  • Avoid technical jargon. Chances are, whichever landing page is converting better, is the one where you’ve used the most simplistic language possible.
  • Build trust. The #1 reason someone won’t buy from you is because he doesn’t trust you. Make sure your information is personal and accurate.  Do your best to show you are a real organization; highlight your areas of expertise; make contacting your organization easy; and make sure your website is absolutely professional.

There are a lot of things you can do to increase your conversion rate, but we also know you’d rather spend your time working with your customers and developing your products and services. Call WSI New Media Marketing at 855-856-4980 to discuss how we can help you with your online campaigns.

Tentickle Tents digital marketingTentickle tents partner with WSI

Tentickle, the South African based stretch tent manufacturer has asked WSI in Cape Town, South Africa, to further expand their international marketing campaign into Germany.

More recently we have started to leverage WSI’s global network, working with WSI’s top French consultants, to assist with onsite Optimisation and translation into French. There’s no doubt that WSI’s network gives us the capacity to assist global clients on a scale that few local agencies would be able to match.

Who is Tentickle Tents?

Tentickle Tents is a global market leader in the supply of Bedouin inspired stretch tents and stretch fabric canopies to the African, European, Australian and US eventing industry. They have supplied private party tents, stunning wedding tents, corporate event tents and mega-stage tents to some of the biggest functions on the global events calendar. Society weddings, international sports events, global music festivals, high-end fashion shows and multicultural outdoor festivals – you name it, Tentickle has the right tent for the event.

What Makes Tentickle’s Tents Different?

Tentickle’s stretch tents offer an event tent solution that is nothing short of spectacular. Combine smooth sexy curves with even more stunning fabrics. Add their renowned stretch decor and bring it all to life with expertly positioned lighting and you’ll have a recipe that’s going to time and again leave your guests gasping with delight. The fact that their tents are amongst the most versatile, easy to pitch, and pitchable on any gradient, simply adds to an already award winning eventing solution. And yes, here’s one more pitch… Tentickle’s tent fabric is robust, weatherproof and IFR (International Fire Regulations) compliant – a first for the industry when released.

The Way Forward

WSI looks forward to further expanding Tentickle’s international target market with the implementation of additional country specific sub-sites. At the same time, the off-site effort will focus on the syndication of a variety of content, including blogs, directory listings, and social media posts all designed to build links and social signals around the above keywords. The blogs will be syndicated to Tumblr, WordPress, Blogger and Google+. As this effort unfolds, Tentickle expects to see their brand at the top of the results for all keywords.

To ensure that these strategies bear fruit WSI analyzes key performance indicators and prepares regular transparent marketing reports. These not only keep Tentickle Stretch Tents informed about monthly activities but also help us to ensure our clients get the required Return on Investment from their marketing. It’s a tough, competitive industry online and our WSI Cape Town based Digital Marketing team are proud of the results achieved thus far.

Growing Leads and Sales with Marketing Automation

Ken Bowden - Friday, July 24, 2015

The ultimate goal for online marketing is to generate more leads and convert them into paying customers. Here are 5 ways to target, personalize and automate your marketing messages across multiple channels.

WSI Partners with CM Furnaces – Lab and Production Furnace Manufacturer

Ken Bowden - Friday, July 17, 2015

WSI, the world’s largest internet marketing company, announces it has partnered with CM Furnaces (http://www.cmfurnaces.com), a worldwide manufacturer of lab and production furnaces for over 70 years.

CM Furnaces has established itself as the “Cadillac manufacturer” of furnaces for serious scientific research and production work. Used throughout labs and universities as well as in the metal injection molding and ceramics industries, all CM furnaces provide advanced features and a “no-shorcuts” design mindset making them quality and reliability standouts among all high temperature furnaces manufactured today.

WSI consulted on the design and development of this highly targeted website and online marketing program which is focused on brand recognition and lead generation for the 70 year old company. New marketing programs and custom content were created, weaving these new concepts into the visual and structural redesign of their existing website and all online brand properties.

CM Furnace Marketing Challenges

CM Furnaces had an extremely outdated, non-mobile friendly website, and no sophisticated understanding of digital marketing. Increased competition from lower priced offshore manufacturers convinced them that they needed to reinvigorate their brand and pursue a wider variety of marketing options.

Types of furnaces manufactured include:

WSI Brand development services for this client include a new mobile-friendly website designed to speak to customers in each industry that uses their many furnace lines. Also SEO services as part of its “Semantic Mapping” approach to on-page SEO.  With this approach a comprehensive study of product demand is conducted and mapped into a strategic architecture for the company website and all company web properties.  Quality Blog, graphic and video content is created and syndicated on external web properties including Tumblr, WordPress and BlogSpot in addition to hundreds of other social media and content hubs.

WSI’s Elite National Branding program is comprehensive.  By carefully customizing this content strategy through on-page and off-page activities, WSI has achieved amazing results through a highly conservative approach that has proved resistant to changes in Google’s search algorithm’s and even improved client visibility as less reputable SEO approaches cause competitors to disappear from Search Engine Visibility.

Preliminary Results

Only a month after launching the new website and completing preliminary Search Engine placements, CM has seen their contact rate go from 2 or 3 per month to 2 or three per week. They have appeared now in top 50 search results for relevant terms for which they previously had no exposure like, “continuous furnace”, “muffle furnace”, and “pusher furnace” among many others. As our search placement program progresses, we expect this contact rate to rise much further.
