Our Marketing Efforts
An online marketing plan focused on content creation, local SEO, and lead nurturing.
First, we performed a technical cleanup of the client’s website and franchise pages. Then, we focused on improving the franchise web pages using locally optimized keywords for SEO and highlighting their unique services and activities. We also set up geo-targeting that used a visitor’s location to determine the franchise nearest to them and show the user-localized content on the website to increase conversion rate.
The plan included the following efforts:
Website Content Creation
- Optimizing corporate and franchise website content for search engines so client would appear in local searches
- Creating blogs about relevant home healthcare topics and senior health to attract visitors
- Creating infographics, eGuides, and videos to engage visitors
- Creating and optimizing unique social media profiles for individual franchise locations
- Setting up unique Google My Business pages and local listings for locations
- Dynamically showing content related to the website visitor’s location
- Directing users to franchise landing pages through geo-targeting, dynamic content, and calls to action
- Converting visitors into leads by gathering contact information through submission forms for services
- Creating templates for franchisees to encourage communication with customers to request online reviews
