Build a long-term, low-cost pipeline

Operating in a highly lucrative industry, this SaaS business sought to target valuable keywords, despite their relatively low search volumes. With the potential to secure significant contracts, even a few additional clients could translate into a difference of over $100,000 per year per client.

The hefty pay-per-click costs, reaching up to $130 per click, emphasized the immense value at stake. While the website boasted good content and a few first-page rankings, the traffic wasn’t meeting its full potential. That’s where we stepped in.

The SEO Audit

Our journey began with a comprehensive site audit, a vital step in our managed SEO service. We examined keyword rankings, traffic, links, anchor text, and more. Fortunately, the site had no previous penalties, but its traffic growth remained stagnant. The issue stemmed from a lack of link equity and insufficient optimization. Our goal was to enhance their link profile while consistently creating valuable content.

Competitive Analysis

Performing a competitive gap analysis allowed us to uncover keywords that the client’s competitors were successfully ranking for, presenting an opportunity for differentiation. We identified 301 terms with search volumes ranging from 300 to 10,000 searches per month, each with its own CPC value. We shared this valuable insight with the client, providing a foundation for new content creation.

Keyword Opportunities

Identifying 114 low-volume keywords with a monthly search volume between 10-40, accompanied by an average cost-per-click (CPC) of $20, proved to be the initial step. Although these keywords weren’t high in volume due to the niche nature of the software, their potential profitability was undeniable. Most of these terms resided on pages 2-3 of search results. While we didn’t expect significant traffic surges from these quick wins, ranking for them promised substantial financial gains.
