THE PLAN

  • With established brick and mortar stores in Philadelphia, they came to FTF to help expand their online footprint nationally.
  • The focus of the campaign would be on finding the brand’s “keyword universe” and executing on it through improved online messaging and content.
  • Once the keywords and content were set, the plan was to turn to a mass link outreach effort to build authority in the space.

THE EXECUTION

  • FTF built a comprehensive keyword matrix that captured the universe of non-branded keywords KicksUSA.com should have been targeting for SEO. This included keyword prioritization and campaign development to focus on driving direct and assisted conversion from organic search. In addition, secondary KPIs for Kicks were to increase the average online order value and directly increase e-commerce conversion rate.
  • In the first year working with KicksUSA, FTF increased the number of overall keyword rankings for KicksUSA.com by 4,241% and page one rankings by 487%.
  • By designing, deploying, and scaling link building campaigns for Kicks, FTF was able to increase the net number of linking domains by 240% in the first year, and then 407% in the second year.
