How a Lifestyle Blogger Tripled Revenue and Increased Traffic by 325%
How I Helped Sarah Von Bargen
in Search Traffic
in All Traffic
Goal: Increase Ad Revenues & Change Business Models
After over a decade of building her lifestyle blog audience, Sarah had a following of dedicated readers but traffic was almost entirely dependent on sending new posts to her subscribers in email newsletters and subscriber growth was slow-growing. Sarah wanted to increase ad-based revenue but also leverage increased traffic to change her business model to a course-based revenue stream.
Result: SEO Improvements & Sustainable Revenues
Sarah saw a 3X increase in her ad revenues, 275% more traffic from search engines, 325% more traffic overall to her site, and confidently transitioned her revenue stream into course creation. Since working together on SEO, Sarah entrusted her technical implementation to me and relied on my technical services to keep her site up and running while she was traveling the globe.
“One of the best, smartest, most stress-reducing things I’ve ever done was hire Kim. If you need SEO or tech help, CALL HER. Kim has been absolutely invaluable!”
Simple Changes for a Big Effect
I optimized the most influential posts on her site to increase the right kind of traffic and taught Sarah the basics to implement SEO best practices on future posts through my signature SEO coaching system. I also made changes to Sarah's Wordpress website to improve technical performance and interlinking structure. Sarah took what she learned and continued to implement best SEO practices on her own that continues to build on her SEO success.
Sarah was able to stop actively blogging after making the transition to course creator, thanks to sustained traffic to her travel-related content I optimized.
