Brands I've Worked With

My SEO approach has produced positive results for several well-known and top-ranked companies in USA, Canada, UK, Australia, Germany, France, Japan, Korea and South America. See for yourself some of the logos I've worked with over the years.


Drive Conversions and Pipeline, Not Just Traffic

Every SEO strategy I formulate and execute has one goal in mind: pipeline positive.

Yes, brand expansion does have it's place, but your board aren't going to take branded rankings and brand awareness to the bank. See for yourself some of the results I've driven that actually had an impact on top-line revenue, not just organic traffic.

3x YoY traffic increase for an e-commerce email marketing software

An e-commerce email marketing software provider exclusively for Shopify stores was struggling to translate content and brand positioning into organic traffic.

 A full-funnel content calendar was laid out, with an emphasis on front-loading blog content to capitalize on seasonal themes and max out Black Friday/Cyber Monday. The results was a 3x increase in organic traffic for BFCM season and a doubling of overall blog traffic in less than 5 months.

Tripling BOFU core page traffic with on-page and technical optimzations

A leading customer engagement platform provider had not properly optimized their most commercially important BOFU core pages had over near duplicate content and severe overlap in keyword targets.

Each core page was given its own high buyer intent keyword theme to allow for segmented targeting and were re-optimized for BOFU search terms. This more than tripled organic traffic that lead to 2x as many core page less than one business quarter.

Ranking two thought leadership blog posts #1 within 60 days of publication

A cybersecurity services provider that didn't have a massive backlink profile or extremely high domain metrics wasn't targeting the right content topics. 

We pivoted the strategy and in less than 60 days two thought leadership pieces were ranking #1 and driving a significant amount of traffic that lead to inbound leads mentioning "a really great blog post" during first sales conversations.
