Improve website visibility in organic search through content and site optimization


How to set your online business for success.


The Factory Luxe is a unique Seattle event space located in Seattle’s historic Rainier Brewery. The Sugarbird Marketing team began working with The Factory Luxe in July 2018 to improve its organic search presence and to support a site migration, including changes to the site’s design and UX, CMS, structure, content and keywords, etc.


Challenge

Earlier in 2018, The Factory Luxe worked with a consultant to build a new website using a template. This site redesign resulted in a significant drop in The Factory Luxe’s ranking positions. The principles of SEO were not followed which negatively affected the brand’s search engine visibility. The result was a dramatic drop in traffic which meant that potential customers were not finding the brand organically.

Additionally, the Sugarbird Marketing team worked to streamline the brand’s messaging as the basis of their content marketing strategy. [/et_pb_text][


Goals

We worked with The Factory Luxe to develop a strategic approach to SEO, including content and website optimization.

Our goals were to design a visually beautiful and optimized website telling the company’s story to drive a strong traffic and allow for growth. When the client approached Sugarbird Marketing, they were looking for a website and content that would be completely SEO optimized to better rank the company in organic search and capture more qualified customers.

We worked to realize the following goals:

  1. Implement holistic SEO efforts to rank site higher and acquire more traffic through organic search results

  2. Implement SEO ranking factors to increase site visibility, organic traffic and overall ROI

  3. Streamline and optimize content to fully communicate The Factory Luxe team’s dedication to their customers and the uniqueness of their event space

  4. Submit a sitemap to Google Search Console to make sure the site is properly indexed and crawled by search engines

  5. Track success and campaign effectiveness
