Unionbay came to Victorious looking to improve on previous SEO efforts. Operating in a highly competitive market, they wanted to improve overall rankings for targeted keywords and expand into a younger market to breathe new life into their brand image.

Unionbay had three clearly defined objectives for its SEO campaign. First, they wanted to improve the search position for key terms, such as “cargo shorts,” and move up from page six to the first two pages of Google search results. They also wanted to increase brand awareness among a younger demographic and increase site visits from 18-35 year-olds. Finally, they wanted an SEO strategy that would increase organic revenue by 50%.
