This graph shows the organic traffic the site started picking up once we began SEO.

1. Background

This startup offers a ‘book a gardener online’ service, and was looking to generate leads for their gardener database so that they could prove the concept, expand, and possibly look at future investment.

2. Objective

The goal of the SEO and PPC campaign they asked us to run was lead generation – both picking up gardeners to add to their database, but also homeowners looking for a gardener that they could conveniently book online.

3. Strategy

We started by carrying out keyword research, identifying the phrases and locations that were going to bring in the most leads. We suggested the changes to make to the website to optimise it but, due to the restrictions of the platform, we weren’t able to do the basic onsite SEO.

We then began the Content Marketing campaign, which included publishing content on sites like Houzz (using gardening tips/trends angles) and technology sites (using the crowdfunding angle, as the client was about to start crowdfunding on Seedr.

This content campaign started generating a lot of links, and the crowdfunding angle was a particular hit. One press release picked up 1,200 links, including one on Yahoo News (DA100).

4. Results

The nature of this business is seasonal – people look for a gardener during a very specific time frame – so we didn’t have long from the start of the campaign at the end of March to the busy season.

This analytics chart shows conversions (leads) for the service in the first year of SEO (blue) vs the previous year (orange). Conversions from organic traffic were up 1,534%





The campaign results were stunning. Leads were up 1,534.15% on the previous year, traffic increased 491% and the site even hit the top spot for the keyword “gardener” on Google UK. The client rated his satisfaction with Exposure Ninja at 9/10.
