Though we started here with a completely blank canvas of a website, we can help you grow your traffic similarly by focusing on high-quality, well-written content that uses our proprietary optimization process to rank really well in the search engine results pages (SERPs). We can handle the entire process, from finding the right keywords to target, to in-depth research research–from optimizing and rewriting existing content to creating content from scratch.

In addition to content, we can help you get a variety of link types, including legitimate press mentions, power niche-relevant links, and other opportunities in our network we don’t talk about publicly. These are the same kinds of links we used to rank the site covered in this case study.

We don’t always do this kind of work, but in this case, we also worked on the logo design, and the site design and build-out. Using our extensive network and knowledge of cannabis products, we also helped connect this business owner with several well-matched affiliate products and introduced affiliate managers to help start a mutually beneficial affiliate relationship between the site and the product marketing teams.
