“Since implementing their SEO strategy, our traffic has grown significantly (>10x), and a decent portion of that growth is attributable to their SEO help. We now rank in the top 5 for several keywords that orient well toward buyer intent for our category.”

The Challenge

When we met Dennis and the Lightyear team, they were already positioned well to dominate their industry. Solid understanding of their ideal customer with the product market fit to inspire and delight. The challenge was how to scale up the authority of a relatively new site without a previous SEO campaign running. Everyone on the Lightyear team knew the value of inbound demand generation, but they were looking for a tried and true partner to give them strategic direction on the best use of their time and resources.

The Solution

That’s where we came in. RevenueZen helped design a strategy where Lightyear could keep their brand content standards high, but also take advantage of some SEO related short and long-term wins: those goals are never mutually exclusive.

This involved targeting high purchase-intent keywords that were aligned with Lightyear’s business objectives, identifying and reaching out to key partner websites for co-marketing opportunities, and producing high level thought leadership and resource content to attract new users. Over time, we learned from the initial results which keyword targets and backlink types were driving the best performance.

Our engagement with Lightyear was similar to all of our engagements with venture-backed software and marketplace companies: fast growth, heavy collaboration, and focus on CAC Payback.
