Customer Testimonial:
Our experience working with the SimpleTiger team has been excellent. I’m happy with the transparent communication and the overall management of the project. I like that their team is proactive in pursuing appropriate links and aggressively boosting the rankings of our keywords that are most likely to convert. The monthly reporting is thorough and appreciated, I always feel like I know what work is being done. I also find great value in the monthly tech audits and attention to detail in cleaning up small, but outstanding technical items that can impact us overtime. After working with four different agencies (SimpleTiger being the fourth), the SimpleTiger Team is by far the most proactive and thorough on this front. All-in-all, I completely trust the SimpleTiger team to work for us and produce results, and we are happy with the progress ContractWorks is making.

Contract Works

Project Overview:
Business:

ContractWorks is a contract management software company that helps you store and search for your contracts on the fly in a secure ecosystem at any time. It also allows you to throw together reports very quickly, and get alerts on key contract milestones and expiration dates automatically so you never fall behind on work or payments again.

Problem:

Though ContractWorks had superior technology, software, security, and compliance than most of their competitors, they still had a hard time showing up for keywords searches relevant to their services and the features of their services.

Solution:

We were brought on to help them increase their search volume site-wide, as well as help them rank better for their highest converting keywords. The initial plan was to lay out a holistic SEO strategy, fix any technical issues, then use content marketing to significantly grow traffic over time.

Process

We started the project off by running a full comprehensive strategy including:

Technical Audit to find anything holding the site back from at a structural level, with on-going Technical Monitoring to ensure no issues popped up over the course of the project.

Keyword Research to determine the best keywords to target the primary pages of the site as well as to establish content topics we could utilize with our content production moving forward.

Content Marketing Strategy that through competitive analysis would tell us what types of content we should be producing at what cadence for the optimal effect.

Off-site Strategy which through competitive analysis let us know where ContractWorks’ competition were getting the majority of their links and the authority of those links so that we could plan our link building accordingly.

Solutions
Plan

Since the product was pretty early in its life-cycle when we started this project there wasn’t a lot of organically focused content being produced on the site. We knew at the outset that content production with a consistent content marketing strategy was going to be the main focus of this project in the long run, but wanted to be thorough to ensure the maximum end result by covering all of our basis in the early audit phase of the project.

Production

After establishing a clear outline of what our content should look like, how we should position it to best target ContractWorks’ customers, and which keywords had the greatest opportunity we got to work building content at a consistent, high-paced clip. We had a long list of keywords we wanted to target, and built extensive content around each individual keyword multiple times over to ensure we had content appearing for each individual keyword in multiple variants of search phrases.
