Case Study 1: World Wide Provider of People Traffic Counting Equipment, Software & Services to Retail Establishments.

About the Client:

This company provides the largest selection of people traffic counting equipment, software and services to retail outlets world-wide. Their customers include shopping malls, retail stores, libraries and other establishments around the globe. In early 2014, the company decided to change their online marketing consultancy as their current provider was engaging in much activity which was costly but in terms of lead generation and cost per lead, they were ineffective. DPFOC was engaged in early 2014.

Channels / Techniques Used:

Search Engine Optimization
Remarketing on Facebook and Google's Display Network
Paid Search Advertising on Google & Bing
Social Media Community Management

Paid Display on Facebook and Google Display Network
LinkedIn Pay Per Click Advertising
Conversion Rate Optimization

Our Approach:

Getting Clean Data: The very first thing that we needed was "clean data" - by this we mean that we needed to be able to scientifically measure the company's cost per lead form our online marketing activities regardless of whether that lead came from a telephone call or inquiry form on the website. We implemented telephone and inquiry form tracking and linked both to Google Analytics. We then agreed a target cost per lead with the client which now could be scientifically measured. Armed with this data, we could confidently invest in multiple channels secure in the knowledge that all spend was now being scientifically tracked and reported upon.

SEO: A key consideration for this company in choosing their SEO provider was sustainability ie the company wanted to be totally certain that DPFOC would not engage in any black-hat techniques that could cause penalties down the road. Once we showed the client our approach to SEO and in particular link-building, they were satisfied that our processes were future proofed and totally white hat.

There has been a steady increase in organic traffic. Between the months of March and August there was a 100% increase in monthly lead volumes within target CPL.
Rank Improvements were steady and sustainable as was organic traffic growth

Remarketing:

Choosing which people counting solution to utilize is an involved purchase for retail establishments and so the sales cycle is quite long. We ensured that our client maintained a highly visible presence to all those who visited the website for the entire sales cycle, which we estimated be circa 60 days. We utilised Google's Display Network and Facebook to remarket.

Conversion Rate Optimization:

In order to drive down CPL still further, we are working with this client to optimize pages on their site and running A/B tests to scientifically assess which pages convert at the higher rate.

Growing from Here:

As part of DPFOC's active budget management service, we are closely monitoring CPL from each channel and keyword. We are growing the spend on profitable channels and keywords as well as adding new channels. We have recently added PPC advertising on Bing and will continually and gradually increase the budget until we are accessing every possible profitable lead in North America. Next, we will target decision makers in the retail sector on LinkedIn. We feel that doubling the current lead flow is a realistic target within the next 12 months.

Case Study 3: One of Ireland's Most Successful Newspapers

About the Client:

This company is one of Ireland's leading online newspapers and one of the very few publications in the world successfully charging people for content. The company operates a metered content model whereby a certain amount of free articles are offered each month after which users need to subscribe to access additional articles.

Channels Used:

Search Engine Optimisation

What We Did:

This site was highly authoritative with very strong page rank, domain authority, Moz Rank etc. This was owing to the site being a long standing and highly reputed publisher in its niche. However, no systems were in place in terms of on-page SEO meaning that the site had large scale duplicity. Many articles were being published to several locations on the website with no provision made for canonicalization. There was a lengthy list of substantial on-page issues with the website. We worked with the team at the newspaper to resolve all these legacy issues and put systems in place to prevent further issues arising.

The Results:


Organic daily visits now consistently in excess of 3000 and as high as 4093 on June 2, 2015.

Year on year (first half 2015 vs same period 2014) organic traffic up 39%

The site continues to add steady streams of subscribers on a daily basis.

Top ranks for high demand keywords driving organic visitors.

Content Used:

Modern SEO is all about high quality content. For this client, we have produced consistently interesting, compelling and engaging content in the form of infographics, timelines, lists, quizzes and story maps.

Observations:

"If you look at the results for the first 3-4 months, they are not at all spectacular. Unfortunately, many of our clients will lose patience at this stage and decide to cancel. This client however trusted DPFOC, trusted our content based white hat ethos and so stayed the course with us. I am delighted to see the success that this company is now enjoying and look forward to being a part of that for years to come."

About the Client:

This client is a global leader in the recruitment of students for medical universities throughout Europe.

DPFOC's Role:

This client simply wanted us to increase their organic ranks in Google for a series of competitive keywords.

The Results:

By conducting a diligent on-page audit of this large website, we were able to quickly identify a lot of quick-wins in terms of rank improvements. Once we were satisfied that the site was prefect from an on-page perspective, we began working on creating a steady stream of high quality content. Our outreach team works hard on an on-going basis to get this content in front of the most relevant bloggers and news publications in this space with the result that we have achieved well over 100 high quality, relevant, editorial links to the website and achieving more on a weekly basis. These links have fed into organic rank and traffic growth as per the graphs below.

Case Study 9: Manufacturer & Installer of Shutters, Blinds, Security Doors & Solar Panels in Western Australia

About the Client:

This company is the leading manufacturer of shutters (plantation and roller), blinds, security doors and solar panels in Western Australia. The company had been using one of the world's largest digital marketing companies to manage their SEO and Paid Search activities. The company grew frustrated by the digital marketing agency's policy of not giving them access to their own AdWords account and so started to consider alternative providers. After a competitive tendering process, DPFOC was chosen as the new agency.

Channels Used:

Search Engine Optimisation.
Paid Search Advertising: Google, Yahoo, Bing.

Remarketing: Google's Display Network, Facebook

Our Approach:

Getting Clean Data: The client had a target cost per lead that it wanted us to work to achieve. However, upwards of 40% of leads came through the client's call centre. The previous digital marketing agency did not have telephone tracking in place. This meant that there was no meaningful data available as to cost per lead by channel as telephone leads were going untracked. DPFOC immediately installed telephone tracking which we linked to the client's Google Analytics account. This gave us visibility into cost per lead at channel and keyword level and so facilitated scientific bidding decisions.

SEO: The previous agency's approach was a black-hat and highly risky one. Their primary method for building links was a blog that they set up on which the posted articles and in these linked back to the main company website. All links were optimised for target keywords. This is a clear violation of Google's quality guidelines so we stopped this activity immediately. Instead we focussed on generating genuinely compelling content and building high quality, editorial links that would always be future proofed against algorithm updates.


The company is generating in excess of 250 organic daily visitors which yields in the region of 15 inquiries per day between inquiry forms and telephone calls. As below, we intend to rebuild the website to increase the conversion rate.

Paid Search:

Having telephone lead data flow into Analytics enabled us to quickly see that several keywords were either under or overbid. The underbid keywords were getting relatively few clicks due to low average positions while the overbid clicks were getting lots of clicks but the associated conversion rates were too low and so the keywords were not within target CPL. By modifying the bids to the correct levels, we quickly got all keywords within target CPL.


With telephone tracking in place, we could immediately see the keywords within target CPL (below $65) and the ones over target. By reallocating money from the over target keywords to the under target ones, we could grow lead flow while ensuring that all keywords were within target CPL. The previous digital marketing agency was bidding blindly.

Remarketing:

The products sold by the company are large ticket, highly involved purchases. Such purchases are characterised by detailed research and lengthy sales cycles. Accordingly, we set up remarketing campaigns on Google's display network as well as on Facebook to re-engage those users who did not make an inquiry either by phone or inquiry form.

SEO ROI:

Monthly Spend: $2000
Monthly Leads from Organic Visitors: ~500
Target CPL: $65
Delivered CPL: $4
Monthly Organic Visitors: ~6500

Paid Search ROI:

Monthly Spend: $12000
Monthly Leads from Paid Search Visitors: ~280
Target CPL: $65
Delivered CPL: $42

Growing from Here:

As part of DPFOC's active budget management service, we are now incrementally increasing the paid search budget each month while closely monitoring CPL as we do. We will continually and gradually increase the budget until we are accessing every possible profitable lead in Western Australia. We feel that doubling the current lead flow is a realistic target within the next 12 months.

In order to drive down CPL still further, we are working with this client to build a new responsive (mobile, tablet and desktop optimised) website. The new website will have more imagery, videos and testimonials all wrapped in a clean, fresh and modern design. This contrasts with the current website which feels somewhat old fashioned at this point albeit still delivering extremely strong lead flow.

Case Study 10: Online Retailer of Home Brewing Equipment in Ireland

About the Client:

This company is the leading supplier of home brew equipment to the Irish market.

Channels Used:

Search Engine Optimisation.
Paid Search Advertising: Google, Yahoo, Bing.

SEO ROI:

Monthly Spend: €500
Monthly Revenue from Organic Visits: ~€35,000

This long term Irish client has seen its organic visitors climb from an average of 250 in January 2014 to almost 500 daily visitors by October. The organic channel accounts for approximately 50% of the site's overall turnover.

Paid Search ROI:

Monthly Spend: €1000
Monthly Revenue from Organic Visits: ~€13000



A monthly spend of less than €1000 consistently generates over €12.5k of revenue.

Growing from Here:

We will be adding 3rd party channels such as Amazon and Ebay to this company's list of active channels in late 2014. These channels will drive incremental revenue for the client while we continue to grow sales from the currently highly profitable search channels. There is no doubt that once these new channels are added, the client will surge through the €83k/month mark and become one of the relatively few Irish e-tailers breaking the €1million per annum mark.
