Content-Led traffic Growth

Content has always been my strong suit, so I’ve leaned into it heavily  to generate traffic for several clients.

Take a look at the sample graphs here showcasing growth. Most of these were achieved balancing quantity with quality to create an authoritative body of knowledge for each website that made it progressively easier to build traffic with longtail posts in the same niche.

I worked closely with Andrew on a project for a client in the financial services industry, which involved building long-form, informational content to rank for specific keyword clusters. Andrew did an excellent job executing the content strategy and went above and beyond when providing the deliverables.

One piece of content, in particular, performed exceptionally well and was responsible for generating over 20K+ sessions and close to 50% of total sites visits in a two-year time frame. This article also led to 10% of all conversions for the site. I would highly recommend Andrew for any content marketing project, in particular, if it requires a thorough understanding of SEO best practices.

Ranking a Local Real Estate Agent

I launched my friend’s website for her realtor business in Guelph, Ontario. It made her look more professional than her competitors and let her claim  a niche serving the LGBTQ+ community.

I also wrote a piece of cornerstone content that immediately took the #1 spot on Google for the target keyword, which you can see in the carousel here.

Creating my own website seemed so daunting! I honestly didn’t know where to start. Finding the right person to help me with it was even more stressful!

When I met Andrew, my stress went away almost instantly. He explained why websites are important, key things I should have, and really helped me understand SEO. Putting together a website is a task and with my busy schedule it seemed impossible. Andrew took over creating my website, the design and layout are beautiful and works well for my business. He even helped me create an amazing guide that has really increased traffic to my website.

He went above and beyond, I am glad I am working with Andrew! Not only do you have great taste and an amazing design but your personal touch makes a difference.

Thank you so much for everything!

B2B Sales Enablement

I know how important sales collateral and content support is to sales because I’ve served as a partnerships manager without them. It sucked.

That’s why I’ve put time into creating sales and marketing collateral for enterprise clients. I’ve also created content calendars, written sales scripts, and helped with client education collateral aid sales teams in their efforts to build tribes and rapport online, bringing marketing and sales closer together in the process.

Other Achievements

Non-Profit Campaigns

I set up a small local organization with its first ever email marketing campaign to unlock 300+ dormant donors, complete with templates and a built-in CRM to manage relationships at scale. The email campaign sustained a 35% open rate over five weeks.

Specialization in Talent-Related Content

Two of my biggest clients in the past were talent acquisition and human resources agencies. Combined with my Employed Historian, I have extensive experience writing about job searching and the hiring process from both sides of the table.

Technical SEO for Divi

Core Web Vitals provided a serious challenge for sites running visual builders, since their code tends to be bloated. I solved this challenge using the Divi builder for WordPress, and wrote a guide showing readers how to achieve fix things like cumulative layout shift.

The Project Results

I started Webb Content early in my career, and it served as a fast-track for developing new skills and becoming an independent professional.

I’ve covered content strategy, sales enablement, email marketing, technical SEO, and even website creation.

While I’ve parked my freelance brand for now to pursue other projects, it’s still gratifying to receive inquiries about content and SEO services fairly regularly from people who stumble across my content.

This is when it’s time to stop worshipping the brand

We tend to worship brand fidelity above all else, but this can become a detriment to marketing campaigns when success takes a backseat to a mentality of “colouring inside the lines.” The truth is that brands can’t just fit into a box these days. Not online, anyway....
