1457% Return on Investment in Organic eCommerce SEO Image

1457% Return on Investment in Organic eCommerce SEO

RCS is a wholesale eCommerce store that sells reclaimed wood table tops, table bases, and reclaimed wood restaurant furniture. After experiencing a steady decline in SEO-attributed eCommerce sales, RCS engaged PixelCutLabs® for a fully-managed SEO campaign using the Organic Visibility Framework™ strategy. After digging deep into the data, running a six-layer manual SEO audit that combines data from ScreamingFrog, Ahrefs, Google
Search Console, Google Analytics, SEMRush, OnCrawl, and several other advanced SEO tools, we identified the following three problems that were contributing to the steady loss in organic visibility: 1. Spammy Link Profile - Prior to engaging with PixelCutLabs®, RCS worked with a service provider who acquired tens-of-thousands of international low-authority links through grey- and black-hat SEO practices. Darren and Brennen on the PixelCutLabs team identified a distinct negative correlation between the acquisition of these links and the organic search visibility of RCS. 2. Thin & Low-Quality Content - While completing the content audit phase of our comprehensive manual analysis, PixelCutLabs® discovered underperforming content across the entire website. During our competitive analysis, we explored a positive correlation between content depth and rankings - a common finding in most cases. 3. Neglected eCommerce Pages - The PixelCutLabs® team found that nearly every eCommerce page (category & product pages) were not individually optimized for high-volume and low-competition target keywords, ultimately leading to decrease search visibility. Client Testimonial: "I wish I could find more people like you to partner up with." Results: - 120% Increase in Daily Crawled Pages - 177 Do-Follow Links Acquired - 92 Guest Posts Written (Avg. 42 Domain Rating) - 683% 12-Month Traffic Growth - 215 Top-3 Keyword Rankings - 1,457% 12-Month ROI

12X Traffic Growth & $38,000 Traffic Value

After digging deep into the data, running a six-layer manual on-page SEO & technical audit that combines data from ScreamingFrog, Ahrefs, Google Search Console, Google Analytics, SEMRush, OnCrawl, and several other advanced SEO tools, we identified the following areas required more focus to increase The Pet Vet’s organic visibility: 1. Individual Location Pages - Prior to working with PixelCutLabs, The Pet Vet had only 8
pages on its website, with nearly all organic traffic landing on the home page. We took the strategic route of creating location-specific pages with detailed descriptions of each hospital's amenities. 2. Authority - Having been a single-location company for nearly a decade, The Pet Vet did not have any national coverage or links from authoritative national websites. We worked with The Pet Vet to develop an outreach campaign hinged on infographics and guest posting to build the organization's link profile. Results: 4,620 Vet Appointments Booked 5,800 New Keyword Rankings 12x Growth in Traffic $38,000 PPC Equivalent Monthly Traffic Value Client Quote: "Their knowledge of SEO was extensive, and it was clear they knew more about it than the average SEO company."

PixelCutLabs' work has already contributed to progress. Remaining transparent, they explain their reasoning for everything and are very responsive. They have the ability to be whatever the client needs them to be, whether that be buttoned-up or scrappy, they can do it.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm Head of Marketing for an on-demand staffing marketplace, Adia. We connect businesses with temporary workers through an easy-to-use platform. I'm responsible for our marketing strategy for both B2B and B2C audiences, with a large focus on B2B demand generation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelCutLabs?

We hired PixelCutLabs to build out our SEO strategy and improve our organic traffic primarily for B2B, with B2C as a secondary priority.

What were your goals for this project?

We were hoping to improve our search rankings and traffic for keywords surrounding the needs of our B2B audience in order to increase demand generation through organic.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them through a google search. Ranking at the top of the page for what we were looking for was a good sign that they knew what they were doing in terms of SEO. They were also far more technical and had much more meat to their pitch than other vendors we explored. I liked their consultative, educational approach to SEO so that our team could also learn about an area we're not experts in. Good value for a reasonable cost.

Describe the project in detail.

They built a keyword strategy, performed various audits of our site, identified where we need to make changes to optimize the site architecture and keywords, built a content plan, and handle the keyword research and optimization of each piece of content within the plan. They've also secured partner posts to create backlinks to our site in order to build site authority.

What was the team composition?

We have a Senior SEO strategist, an SEO analyst, and a client success manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

As SEO is a long term play, it will take a bit longer for the results to show in our traffic and conversions, but I can already see progress in the approach to SEO that we didn't have before. Our content is working harder for us thanks to their upfront research and strategy behind it.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their team is super responsive and very transparent with workflows, deliverables, and explaining the "why" behind what they're doing.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They have a science to what they're doing, which I think is what we needed to up our game on SEO. But what I like even more is the way they've adapted to our business needs, and pivoted alongside us. When we need them to be buttoned up, they are. When we need them to be scrappy and resourceful, they are. And as a start-up with constantly changing priorities, that's been really helpful to see their willingness to adapt to what we need in order to serve us well.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We have a lot of nuances to our business that have implications on SEO strategy, and I think there's a little room for improvement on fully understanding those, but otherwise very happy with their work.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Using their expertise to create a tailored SEO solution, PixelCutLabs was able to recover the agency’s high ranking on SERPs for several keywords. As a result, traffic to the site has dramatically increased. They were transparent and communicative, resulting in a smooth collaboration.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We’re called Killer Visual Strategies. We are visual communications agency, and we really focus on helping other organizations take data information, or maybe new brand or product, and turn that into a visual story. We simplify complex information  through visual means.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PixelCutLabs?

We changed our organization’s name last year, so we changed our domain name. Unfortunately, our rankings basically bottomed out. So, we spent several months trying to build that recognition back up, and realized that we have a small marketing team and we needed some outside help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

PixelCutLabs helped with our backlink strategy. On top of that, they help us publish content on other sites.

What is the team composition?

Right now it’s three people—our point person, and two others.

How did you come to work with PixelCutLabs?

We met the owner of the company last year and became friends. It just so happened that we had a need for their services, so we reached out to them.

How much have you invested with them?

We pay about $2,500 per month, and we plan to work with them through the end of the year, so we will spend about $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in November 2019, and they’ve been helping us ever since.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

Our site rankings have jumped up and helped put us back in the green, or where we were before the name change. Our organic search before we began working with PixelCut Labs was around 800 visitors per month, now we’re averaging 6,200 visitors per month. We weren’t ranking for anything, and now we’ve recovered and rank anywhere between 1–5 for certain keywords.

How did PixelCutLabs perform from a project management standpoint?

From a project management standpoint, they’re fantastic. They’re very transparent and communicative. It’s so easy to work with them. Our clients are our number one priority and we want to make sure they’re happy and the process is nice and smooth. PixelCutLabs’ process is well laid-out. They just provided a report on how the campaign is working.

They’ve done a good job onboarding us and giving us the nuts and bolts of what they’re doing. They provide weekly reports as the campaign progressed. We know exactly what’s happening on any given day. They also have a platform that gives clear snapshots of what’s going on, who they’re reaching out to, and what links we’re acquiring.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

They have a lot of expertise in SEO, but they explain things in simple terms. They’re always looking for new avenues and new solutions to exploe. SEO isn’t one-size-fits-all, and they geared everything specifically towards our needs. It wasn’t a cookie-cutter process, it was tailored for our needs.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I haven’t seen any red flags.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be prepared for the communication side of it. They may tell you that it’s going to take time, and it is. Some folks want things done right away, but PixelCutLabs will tell you how to get the best results. Listen to them and take their advice. They’re the experts.

The team excels in honesty and transparency, communicating when they have time to provide additional services.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-owner of an e-commerce company. We started on Etsy, and now we have our own site.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with PixelCutLabs?

We wanted to increase our organic traffic, so we hired them for SEO services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

PixelCutLabs provides organic search support for our platform. They conduct in-depth keyword research surrounding every product we have. Their strategists help us with our social media handles.

One team member helps us do Instagram giveaways. Another gives us popular topics and outlines to inform the content of our blog. They’ve generated backlinks and content, using keywords with a fairly high monthly search rate and a lower keyword difficulty.

What is the team composition?

I work with four members of their team. Brennen (Founder & CEO, PixelCutLabs) hosts the meetings and helps with everything across the board.

How did you come to work with PixelCutLabs?

I was referred to them by a PPC company.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested approximately $45,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve had an ongoing partnership since March 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

I receive weekly reports that disclose my non-branded organic revenue. PixelCutLabs has created a tool on their platform that allows me to log in and view detailed data at any time. It lets me view how our total traffic and specific keywords are performing. We can see how our products are ranking in comparison to one another.

PixelCutLabs’ platform is extremely useful and provides me with any information I want. When I’ve worked with other SEO companies, there’s been a lot of ambiguity. Brennen is very upfront and truthful. He undershoots and overperforms, and always gives us accurate projections. The ability to see any specific data point I want, when I want, is very rare.

I’ve worked with a few SEO companies before, and their team’s thoroughness has been remarkable compared to others. From the get-go, they were super meticulous in understanding our business and what makes us tick. It wasn’t just logistical for them.

How did PixelCutLabs perform from a project management standpoint?

We have biweekly meetings, and their team is willing to meet more if I need. There’s constant contact because they’re always involved and very informative. All of our messaging occurs on a system within their website. They provide updates on tasks and confirm action items. The system is very convenient and easy to manipulate if I want to make changes or go in a different direction.

During months when they’ve had extra time, they still make time to help us. They’ve specifically asked what we’d like them to do with that additional time. They’re extremely communicative and have a high level of integrity. I always know how PixelCutLabs is performing in relation to what I want and expect.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The number one thing is honesty. They don’t make big promises that they can’t deliver on. If Brennen isn’t sure about a timeline, he’s extremely honest. Honesty and transparency are the two main things that differentiate them from any advertising company I’ve ever worked with.

Another impressive factor is availability. I can always get in contact with someone. When I email them, I know I’ll get a response within 2–3 hours. If I have a question in the email, Brennen records a video of himself answering and walking me through it. It’s extremely helpful.

I don't normally take the time to review a company because I’m so busy, but I've been extremely impressed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I don’t have anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Think long term. You won’t get results on the same day you begin–it’s a long-term strategy.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Vice President of Marketing for The Pet Vet Veterinary hospitals. We are group of veterinary hospitals located inside Petco locations in TX, OK, AR and KS.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PixelCutLabs?

We hired PixelCut Labs for SEO services. They worked with us during the launch of our new website to ensure it was properly optimized. They also created content for the site and managed all of our local listings.

What were your goals for this project?

When we began the project we were virtually invisible on Google. Our goal was simple...be seen!

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We went through an interview process with about 15 different firms and chose PixelCut because they stood out head and shoulders above the rest in their knowledge of SEO and their ability to explain it's importance to members of our team that we not well versed in the topic.

Describe the project in detail.

After we agreed to the terms we had a kickoff meeting. There were a number of permissions that needed to be granted.

Once those were set up PixelCut set up a portal for us that listed all of the tasks they were working on. This portal was an easy and convenient way to communicate about our project and allowed us to keep all communication and documents in one place.

We had monthly calls to discuss the project and any time I had a question or needed something between the calls I would message them on the portal and have an answer very quickly. We had a mess to wade through since we had 5 locations with inconsistent listings across many different online listing sites.

PixelCut worked with our website design vendor to optimize the new website they were designing and once it was launched they began creating content for our locations pages and blogs. They also secured backlinks for our campaign.

What was the team composition?

Aki was my main contact person but Brennen was very involved in all aspects of our campaign.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I believe when our project began we were ranking on the 17th page of Google. Within the first 4 months we were on the first page.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The communication was easy, fast and friendly. I thoroughly enjoyed working with them and hope to be able to do so again.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their knowledge of SEO was extensive, and it was clear they knew more about it than the average SEO company.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have no complaints.
