Tactic 1 Social Media Optimization
Every social media channel has unique features, users, and best practices. We ran extensive testing on our posting
styles, publishing times, and copywriting to help maximize the reach, engagement, and traffic driven from our social
efforts. We also used Upcounsel’s social media channels to help maximize he reach and impact of articles written
about them on large and influential publications like TechCrunch, Fast Company, Bloomberg Law
and Young Entrepreneur.

Tactic 2 Content Marketing + SEo
The search engines, specifically Google, have drastically changed the way they rank websites for their search results.
As a result, marketers who rely on traditional SEo tactics are finding themselves buried under penalty after penalty.
Single Grain pairs high-quality content creation with search data to produce content that engages the reader, drives
conversions, and increases search rankings all at the same time.
For Upcounsel, we maintained a regular publishing schedule for their blog, in which each post was promoted to very
targeted audience in order to maximize traffic and social signals. We also created several infographics that went
through a more intense outreach process to earn quality backlinks and increased sharing.
Tactic 3 PPC and SEO Consulting
Our team worked closely with Upcounsel to ensure the maximum impact of their site redesign. We advised on site
content and design to improve the overall user experience. This lead to increased opportunities for Search Engine
Optimization as well as a traffic flow that continues to generate more conversions.
Following the site redesign we also consulted and tested multiple landing page layouts to assist with Upcounsel’s
growth into new markets. These landing pages helped grow the attorney community within Upcounsel as well as their
returning client base, essentially growing the business on two fronts.
