This client is a local business and active in the home improvement industry. Their average order value (revenue) is $2,000. The client’s main objective was to increase organic traffic and sales. We started the end of April 2019 and worked only on one sales page.

As you can see, they went from 58 visitors to 474 visitors per month. They went from 2 keyword number 1 positions to 14 keyword number 1 positions. This sales page is their current number 1 page that brings most organic traffic into their website.

This client started to order our guest post packages but waited with the on-page optimization. Their organic traffic increased steadily every month. In November 2019, we convinced this client to use our on-page SEO service to improve their website. After the on-page optimization was complete, they experienced rapid growth in the search engines.

The current organic traffic and sales are the highest compared to previous months. So far, they invested $1,750 on this page and realized a net profit of $8,570 (ROI 490%). Currently, they are spending $200 on this page to maintain this position, which is making them a net profit of $2,400 per month. 

We expect that they will maintain this position for the coming months with little investment, which means that the ROI on this project keeps rising.

Now, we are working on seven other pages.
