Services Performed

  • Produced a Content Strategy

The Challenge for NEEDaFIXER was to deliver an SEO strategy that helped to drive new business enquiries. The challenge also involved addressing website technical issues and a lack of text based content. Our objectives also involved outbound content marketing to help drive brand awareness & traffic.

The website did not rank for anything other than a handful of long-tail keywords and brand search terms / brand variants. The website generated less than 10 visitors a day organically.

The Strategy

The Strategy for NEEDaFIXER was to make the initial website fixes as quickly as possible to then move on to a specific content strategy. Our content strategy covered the research, production and marketing of relevant content to attract new traffic, new links and new brand awareness.

Using a tailored content marketing plan, Assertive helped to leverage more on site and off site content – on site content to drive the initial ranking growth and off site content as part of a content marketing strategy.

As we promoted content across the web, NEEDaFIXER saw strong traffic and ranking increases that have helped to generate onward growth and new business enquiries.

Our strategy was adaptive, focusing more on what is best for the end users and then to addressing smaller technical issues.
