Crafting a New Look & Web Experience Optimized For Summerset’s Target Audience

Summerset’s team recognized that their website was a huge opportunity to not only make a positive first impression with their audience, but also as a keystone for their digital marketing funnel.

Our first step involved laying out a strategy for addressing all of Summerset’s existing website issues in addition to building out new functionality that would improve the user experience.

This included:

  • Implementing technical solutions to improve Summerset’s website performance and load times
  • Optimizing Summerset’s menus and navigation to help visitors find desired content easier
  • Redesigning top-traffic pages to improve Summerset’s look and raise brand equity

With a faster website that featured more sleek navigation and design, Summerset’s visitors were not only spending more time learning about the business, but they were also opting-in and converting to Summerset’s offers at a higher rate.

Summerset’s new website strategy resulted in a +23.75% Increase in Avg. Time on Page and +81% Organic Goal Completions YoY.

An SEO and Blog Content Strategy That Builds Visibility & Drives Organic Traffic

With an entirely new customer-focused website experience that was designed to move visitors throughout the funnel, Summerset was now in a position to convert traffic more efficiently.

Although Summerset had a blog in place, it wasn’t being leveraged to its full potential. TIC DM worked with Summerset to establish a new blog strategy that would focus on delivering content relevant to Summerset’s audience while also helping Summerset rank for important organic keywords to increase search engine rankings.

Summerset’s new blog strategy included:

  • A regular editorial process based on audience needs and keyword research
  • Citations and link building to improve Summerset’s domain authority
  • A new engaging writing style designed to provide value and answers to visitors
  • SEO-rich copy that would improve organic keyword rankings over time
  • Strategically placed CTAs on each blog to compel visitors to enter Summerset’s funnel

Within just a few months, Summerset’s new blog strategy began to pay off with enormous organic visibility that drove +43% Organic Site Visitors YoY.
