Website Development

SEOteric developed a new website to better tell the Your Pie story. The focus was on better user experience (especially on mobile devices), and for a holistic SEO approach to attract searchers.

We put an emphasis on locations and search strategies to attract leads from targeted markets via SEO and Google Adwords.

Leads were set up to funnel directly to the CRM for easy management.

The focus is on quality leads, with many times 50% or more being qualified for further discovery.

Website Development

Location SEO Strategies

The biggest part of the SEOteric offering was to help individual Your Pie locations leverage digital marketing (especially SEO) to increase store-level revenue. Our approach started with developing individual website location pages optimized for their service areas and keywords.

We then began optimizing Google My Business profiles, building citations for each location, and improving overall relevance and prominence for each location. The result was a staggering increase in Google Exposure for discovery-type keywords like “pizza near me”, “pizza restaurants” and “restaurants near me”.

We helped non-branded search terms (discovery keywords) overtake branded search for the first time, and now, the website and business listings have over 3 million monthly impressions in Google across search and maps (local listings).

Location SEO Strategies

Conversion Optimization

SEOteric helped Your Pie create trackable conversion points throughout the search process using click to call, ordering online, downloading menus, and other actions that promote engagement and lead to in-store sales.

SEOteric created clickable assets that could be tracked via Google Analytics to understand user behavior, and these insights were used to further optimize the location landing pages for each store.

We found that pages after optimization were converting at 18% on average (not 18% increases, but actually having conversion rates of 18%). This was over 20,000 conversions across 80 locations (an average of 260+ per location over 30 days).

With improved data, Your Pie was able to show positive ROI to the brand and a significant improvement in store-level metrics.

Conversion Optimization

Individual Location Dashboards

SEOteric provided data management and compilation for historical data that had not been previously available. This data provides Your Pie with a full picture of digital effectiveness.

Using our API access, SEOteric was able to collect and compile store-level data specific to each location and in a cumulative view for the brand.

This data is given to each location/franchise owner as their own real-time analytics dashboard.

Individual Location Dashboards

Google Ads Management

We set up Google Ads campaigns for the brand and individual store locations. This approach allowed us to have a system-side approach and supplement individual locations with their own specific Ads strategy.

This allowed better control over ad spend, geofencing on ad campaigns, and store-specific initiatives like catering, delivery, jobs, and local promotions.

Google Ads Management

Franchise Recruiting

In addition to growing store-level metrics, we also engage in franchise lead recruiting using SEO, Google Ads, and social media advertising.

We’ve generated between 30-50 leads per month and help the leadership team in scoring these leads for further outreach, look-alike audiences, and conversion rate optimization.
