The sales cycle of many businesses got more complicated due to COVID-19. And that’s perfect for inbound marketing. Many have spent money on traditional sales & marketing efforts with an unknown ROI. Digital marketing in today’s world requires using innovative, evidence-based strategies your competitors aren’t.

Short term results have included: 2 additional qualified leads per day, 200 page views per day (both trending upward). Click-through-rates at 5+% (nearly double industry average) and the client currently owns a 14% impression share, meaning they show up in 14% of all searches nationwide for their category, which is more than Amazon.com and second only to Uline for total impression share in this category.

Long term results have included: 398% growth in organic google search traffic, a $300K sales contract directly from inbound marketing, 1,290% growth in organic google search traffic, 136% growth in email leads from content, 12% growth in sales conversions (not just leads)
