CFA has a brand new website and they are in the preliminary stages of testing online traffic-
driving tactics such as social media. CFA did not have any analytics tracking site traffic. They have
a marketing department on staff and multiple people managing the social media.
After adding Google Analytics to the site, some initial findings show that the current
highest traffic-driving vehicle is referral traffic. Organic, direct and social have room for
growth. Email and paid search are not currently being utilized.
` Referral: Sites such as the Knoxville Chamber or any website that has a link to CFA on their site
` Organic: Any traffic where the user was searching pertinent keywords (e.g. installation of new
furniture or on-site project management)
` Direct: When the user types in the url in their browser
` Social: Facebook and any other social media sites
` Paid: Google Adwords
The majority of site traffic came from Knoxville and Nashville with some smaller concentrations
in outlying areas. This information will help us identify the target markets with the most
The visitors skewed female with higher concentrations in 25-34 and 55-64. According to the
Pareto Principle or the 80-20 Rule, 20% of your clients account for 80% of your sales. So the idea
is to identify the 20% or the heavy users and find more of them. This information helps us when
identifying the target audience for retargeting or paid tactics.
CFA is in the initial stages of digital traffic driving vehicles, and when compared to other sites
in the industry, was higher than average for referral but had room for growth in all other
Employ tactics to grow Organic, Direct, Social, Email and Paid search traffic.
Organic search is going to be a high conversion vehicle since the user is actively seeking your service
or product. This is why we rank improving organic search at the top of our services. Organic search
takes a few weeks to identify keywords, install the plugin and create pertinent copy. In order to
increase organic search we recommend the following tactics:
` Install SEO Plugin
` To increase organic rank we will install an SEO plugin compatible with WordPress
` Site Audit & Research
` Identify missed SEO opportunities
` Recommend changes to site structure
` Research competitors for additional insight
` Optimize backlink anchor text for keywords and corresponding landing pages
` Landing Pages
` Perform keyword and longtail keyphrase research
` Create keywords-optimized or industry-specific landing pages monthly using provided content
e.g. case studies and completion photos
` Content Marketing
` Utilizing knowledge of important keywords, concept and create keyword relevant articles to be
disseminated via blog and social media
To increase direct traffic, utilize traditional media and networking methods that promote
your url. We can help you come up with a traditional media strategy, however this seems like
something that can be managed in-house. Direct is also going to be a high conversion vehicle
since the user is specifically looking for you.
Social media is a great way to quickly grow site traffic. Through posts and targeted paid social ads,
which can be targeted to just your audience you can drive highly targeted prospective clients to your
site. We would be happy to assist in streamlining this vehicle through a calendar, however this is not
on our top three because there are people on staff that are able to manage this.
` Social Media Calendar
` Develop a social media calendar that details annual plan week-to-week
` Social Listening
` Google Alerts set up for CFA and competition
` Monitor keywords and mentions
` Respond timely and effectively
Email is a great way to brand CFA by regularly sending content to segmented prospect lists.
Email keeps you top of mind and is a cost effective medium due to its low cost to reach targeted
customers. It is easy to track because it shows who opened what email, identifying specific
interests and what types of emails are more successful.
This is a service that we highly recommend and is a great fit for a visual product and service. It
is also a great way to build anticipation for trade shows and follow up after. We would take all
of your email contacts and upload them to start. We would also set up an email capture on the
website to help grow the list.
We would collaborate on a branded design for the email and can get this set up within a week of
signing a contract. We would recommend sending out emails weekly or every other week. They
typically take a few days to concept and back and forth edits. We would recommend the social
posts coincide with the emails.
` Email Campaigns
` Manage email campaign account
` Concept and help develop content weekly or bi-weekly
` Manage segmented email lists and email capture forms
` Create templates for different targeted emails
Paid search is one of the fastest ways to get a lot of qualified visitors to your website instantly.
When people search pertinent keywords your ad will appear at the top or right hand side. This
vehicle is very cost efficient because there isn’t a lot of waste. You only pay for the users that
click through to your site. That is why paid search is also called pay-per-click.
We rank this one highly because we know that it will drive prospects to your site that are actively
seeking your product. The conversion rate is slightly lower for paid than it is for organic or
direct. This is because there is quite a bit of competition and unlike direct traffic the consumer
may not be familiar with your brand. For this reason we rank this high on our recommendation
but lower than organic and direct.
Paid search takes time to set up. It will take a week to get this up and running since there is a
lot that goes into getting adwords off the ground. Identifying keywords, writing ads etc. This is
why there is a larger price tag attached to the first month. This is something that a marketing
manager could take over with some training.
` Create and manage targeted Google Adword campaigns
` Create and manage targeted sponsored social posts
` Includes account set up, cost of ads and keywords
` Continually monitor and optimize for best ROI
No strategy is complete without tracking which vehicles are working the best. This intelligence
allows you to make changes to optimize results. We have already set up Google Analytics which
will help you identify opportunities for your website and digital traffic driving vehicles. When
working together, we would provide you reports on a weekly basis helping to identify these
Additionally, we offer lead tracking software management. By installing code on the site and
using data.com, lead-tracking software allows you to identify the businesses that visit your site,
what pages they visited, and for how long. It can be used in conjunction with Salesforce and
Considering 98% of visitors will never reach out to you to contact, either because their questions
weren’t fully answered or they weren’t ready to buy, or they preferred your competitor etc. this
software enables CFA a second chance and an opportunity to reach out to the prospect.
We rank this vehicle highly because these are prospects that are actively seeking your product.
They may only be in the research phase, but now you know, and can have a salesperson reach
out, or get them on an email list to soften them up through branding and education.
We did not rank this service in the top three however, because in the meeting there was a
concern that the sales staff wasn’t fully utilizing Salesforce and in order for this software to be
beneficial you must have the sales staff ready to actively pursue these leads. When combined
with a hungry sales team, lead identification software can be an immensely powerful tool. Lead
identification software takes a few days to get up and running and comes with a minimum 3
month contract in order to give the tool a fair chance.
