Success stories

Challenge wanted an easy-to-navigate, lead-generating, Local SEO Optimized website that matched its brand. To top it all off, they wanted to rank on the first page of Google for the Keyword Markham Electricians and variations of that keyword in six months.


We got to work with in-depth research on competitors of Markham electricians, what keywords they were using, and what websites gave backlinks to them. We used various tools in the SEMRUSH tool kit, including keyword gap analysis and backlink gap analysis, to analyze the competition.


In the first three months, search engine results slowly started climbing, and into the third month it was showing up on page two of Google. By month four, there were a total of 12 keywords showing up in Google searches, with three targeted keywords on the first page. We surpassed our six-month goals


Rain Tech Roofing knew they wanted an easier-to-navigate website to convert visitors into customers. They also wanted a responsive website that was optimized for local search to generate more traffic from search.


We designed a new WordPress Roofing Website. Rain Tec Roofing is a responsive website built for all devices, starting with a mobile-first design. We utilized a video hero image to show potential customers the crew in action. The Keyword Magic tool was used to find the top-performing keywords to use.


The site has seen a 500% increase in traffic over a seven-month period. The bounce rate has also dropped by 37% with an increase in customer retention and page visits.
