How KB Tripled their revenue & visitors with Wiredxl

Today, we’ll be highlighting how one of our clients, a new eCommerce company called KB, has become a top contender in the highly competitive cannabis sector.

This was all while starting with zero brand awareness and in an industry where it’s difficult to advertise.

Knowing that search is a core part of any healthy businesses marketing strategy so they reached out to the SEO experts at WiredXL.

Utilized Competitor Traffic

Before coming onboard with WiredXL, KB had minimal content and it wasn’t enough to get noticeable results to overtake existing competitors in search results.

We targeted keywords that KB’s competitors were already ranking for, identified what was missing on KB, and cross-referenced hidden keyword opportunities.

Beyond great research for new content, we also pitched articles to fellow bloggers to generate additional attention from websites with existing Cannabis users.

Our strategy at WiredXL was to leverage where we knew KB could get new customers.

Produced High-Quality & Localized Content

KB only distributes their products in Canada so we needed to localize the content to speak to Canadians and be sure we were going to rank in where they ship.

Equipped with our standard operating procedures around creating localized Canadian content, we were set to dominate local searches.

Applied an Evolving SEO Strategy

Each piece of content has a unique role to play and the planning of our strategy is always evolving.

At first, we looked at gaps where KB wasn’t ranking but their competitors were. Once we filled those gaps, we needed to continuously leverage the ongoing momentum and make data-driven decisions.

We achieved this through careful content planning, precise internal linking, and consistently reviewing search data.

That’s the complete story of how KB grew from a newcomer in the competitive Cannabis landscape to becoming a dominant search leader with the help of WiredXL and our SEO services.
