  17. 17. Case Study <br />Graylyn International Conference Center<br />In 2009, BĒM was contacted by Graylyn International Conference center. Graylyn had their website redesigned the previous calendar year and had been hoping to get some increased lead generation with their new online presence. Lack of results and difficulties getting site maintenance perfomred with their current website designer sent them looking for help.<br />BĒM Group, Inc. conducted a Search Engine Optimization (SEO) report card on the site and recommended aggressive SEO set up and monthly SEO management. Pay per click advertising was also recommended for short term or seasonal programs.<br />BĒM Group, Inc. conducted a SEO key phrase analysis for both SEO and PPC campaigns. Following the analysis, key phrases were selected and initial adjustments were made to the site. Monthly monitoring and continued site adjustments were made from late 2009 through 2010.<br />
  18. 18. Case Study <br />1. SEO Visibility increased across all three tiers<br />2. Non Branded Traffic increased<br />3. Organic Traffic Increased<br />Increase, year over year, in conversions with largest increases shown in 2011.<br />
  19. 19. Case Study<br />Bookings attributed to Internet increased from 80 in 2009 to 219 in 2010.<br />
  20. 20. Case Study<br />Continued increase in organic and non-branded search traffic.<br />
  21. 21. Conclusions and Future Direction<br />Increase in search visibility positively impacts lead generation and bookings.<br />Online conversion totals do not tend to reflect the full impact of increased visibility. Tracking offline is critical.<br />Positive results from SEO are long term. Consistent visibility has a cumulative affect.<br />Be patient.<br />Early indicators are that PPC can positively affect SEO/Conversion.<br />Graylyn began and adjusted some Social Media and Email Marketing efforts. Pursuing best practices across these and all Digital Marketing channels will results in continued positive outcome.<br />
