SEO Case Study

Recovering 100% organic traffic losses for Australia’s Top Make Up & Hair Company

Sapphire make-up & hair is Australia’s leading mobile hair and makeup studio with locations across most of Australia’s capital cities. In addition, they also run a successful ecommerce store selling various hair & make-up products.

The Challenge: Growing Sapphires organic traffic involved fixing a botched SEO web migration that resulted in an almost 100% drop in traffic. We also had to design a SEO strategy for their multiple locations.

The Results: Sapphire partnered with Engine Scout to fix their website migration disaster and within 3 months, we recovered 100% of their lost traffic.

SEO Melbourne

Get Off The SEO Agency Merry-Go-Round

Most SEO agencies in Melbourne will often report strong organic traffic growth, but fail to deliver the results you want – more sales.

Most SEO agencies make 3 common mistakes:

    1. They chase high-volume keywords that don’t get sales
      While these keywords look attractive, the keywords that convert into sales are longtail keywords. High-volume search terms are often too competitive and their results are often disappointing.
    1. They don’t understand your business and create a poor SEO Strategy
      Most agencies don’t care whether you win or lose and they don’t care to understand your business. You need a trustworthy partner to understand your ideal customer and how to optimise for them.
  1. They don’t believe content and SEO are the same things
    Search engine optimisation captures demand by creating content your customers want and meeting them at that exact moment. Customising content for your total search market unleashes your brand everywhere customers turn.

4 phases of SEO Growth

Common SEO Agency Questions

Search Engine Optimisation (SEO) is the process of getting free traffic from search engines. It works by improving or optimising your website based on different ranking factors search engines use to position websites on their search engine results pages. The ultimate goal is to get your website ranking at the top of search results pages so more people will discover your website.

Maybe you’ve tried SEO in the past without getting the results you wanted.

Maybe you’re just busy running your business and want a partner you can trust.

Or maybe, you’ve hit a new stage of opportunity & are ready to take your growth to new heights.

If any of the above sounds like you then hiring a reputable SEO Agency in Melbourne can help you reach new heights.

Whenever another website links back to your website this is what’s called a ‘backlink’. Backlinks are one of the most important ranking factors for achieving results with SEO. It’s vital you have a strategy for acquiring links without breaking Google’s search engine policies. Often a lot of SEO providers will try to sell you backlinks from spammy websites that offer no value and put your website at risk of a Google penalty. Backlinks pointing back to your website need to be high-quality, relevant and send traffic back to your website.

Before working together, our team will conduct a detailed review of your website and determine if SEO is the right online marketing channel for you. If we think it’s not the right fit, we’ll tell you before working together and give you an accurate estimate of the time frame needed to achieve results. Remember, SEO is a long-term strategy and it’s for people who are serious about growing a sustainable and successful business for years to come. If you’re looking for a short-term approach, you’re more likely suited to paid advertising.

We work with established businesses generating at least $400,000 in annual revenue. If you’re launching a brand new business with a small marketing budget, then Google Ads could be a better channel as it requires less upfront investment and can start generating sales faster.

There are over 200 ranking factors used by Google to rank websites and each varies slightly in how much they influence your website’s rankings. Google’s algorithm is both complex and dynamic, which can make it challenging to get the results you want if you lack the knowledge required to perform search engine optimisation. At Engine Scout, we’ve achieved outstanding results for our clients across various industries and locations. Whether you have an eCommerce store, local business, national brand or international company, we have the expertise and experience to achieve fantastic results.

The cost of SEO varies depending on several factors from how competitive your industry is, the age of your website and whether you’ve had any SEO work performed in the past. SEO should be considered an investment instead of a cost because when it’s done right, it will produce additional revenue for your business. Some of our client’s entire business comes strictly from SEO and ranking at the top of Google; that’s how valuable it can be. SEO should be considered an integral part of any marketing budget.

We’re ecommerce experts having built multiple ecommerce stores ourselves and understand the ecommerce business model exceptionally well. We know the exact blueprint for generating more traffic and sales to your store through a combination of SEO, PPC, SMM and CRO.

Engine Scout is a boutique SEO agency with 5 team members. We also hire contract writers from time to time to assist with expert/thought leadership content when required but all of our work is completed in-house.

Our office is located in the Melbourne suburb of Carrum Downs. If you’d like to visit then give us a call and we’d be happy to set up a face-to-face meeting to discuss your goals.

Yes, in addition to being an SEO company we also run paid ad campaigns for clients using Google Ads to compliment their SEO campaigns.

Anywhere from 3-6 months is the typical time frame to see an increase in organic traffic and keyword rankings. The best results happen at around 12 months and continue to grow from there.

No, our clients stay with us because they want to, not because they have to! Engine Scout does not lock you into any long-term contracts and you’re free to leave whenever you’d like. We do ask for 30 days notice if you decide to leave though. 

Offering a guarantee of search engine rankings goes against Google’s guidelines and no one can guarantee this. We do, however, set a minimum set of KPIs against traffic increases and targeted keywords to ensure your campaign is a success.

There are a lot of people who will claim they ‘know SEO’ or ‘how to rank websites’ and often come with a cheap price tag or it sounds too good to be true. This often leads to you being disillusioned with SEO as a scam or forming the belief that it doesn’t work. SEO is one of the best, long-term and cost-effective marketing channels available and you should dedicate some of your marketing spend on SEO as it will produce sustained conversions for years to come.
