How Did We Help?

To help Healthy Steps Pedorthic Clinic reach its goals of boosting website traffic and conversions by 50%, we focused on a robust SEO strategy and an effective PPC approach.

To achieve a higher conversion rate from web traffic to the Healthy Steps site, our marketing team built an effective PPC strategy for the clinic. As part of the implementation of the strategy, we used negative keywords to our advantage while maintaining a narrow list of keyword phrases. Web visitors that are more likely to buy respond best to these types of strategies. In addition, we verified that the landing page content was relevant to the search terms.



Our approach involved developing and implementing a thorough SEO strategy. To help improve the clinic’s search engine ranking, we designed and created a keyword-rich website. We optimized their on-site SEO elements to extend their reach and attract new visitors. In addition to these techniques, we established keyword-rich backlinks from authoritative websites. Doing this helped boost the clinic website’s authority with search engines, placing their pages higher in search rankings and drawing more visitors.
