About the Client

Based in Jacksonville, Florida, the client offers dog and puppy training services specializing in obedience training and behavior modification. With years of experience in canine behavior, they were able to establish a customer base in their local area.



Maintaining a strong online presence is no longer an option for businesses today. It’s a necessity. That’s why when the client approached our partner agency, their objectives revolved around the following:


Improve their website’s ranking to be locally relevant

Scale internal processes

Boost inquiries and coming from local search results

grow revenue

Drive more visits to their website and get more foot traffic

Key Challenges

The client’s strength lies in its good reputation and relationship with existing customers. However, their online presence is not as strong and doesn’t provide the extra push to get more visitors to their website. With our local SEO services, we aim to help the client address the following challenges:

Limited Traffic and Conversions

The lack of online presence on local results limits the amount of traffic that goes to the client’s website. In turn, this affects the number of leads they can convert.

Upon doing an SEO audit, we noticed the client doesn’t have much online traction on local search results. This lack of relevance affects how they are reaching customers, especially within their community.

After optimizing the client’s website, we started building high-quality backlinks to websites that are relevant to their industry and have a high Domain Authority.

Local Citations and Google My Business Optimization

Our local SEO strategy includes building citations on local websites, listings, and directories that the client’s target audience visits.

We also optimized the client’s Google My Business profile to help the client appear on Google Map search results and the Local Snack Pack. This involved updating their Name, Address, and Phone Number (NAP) to make it easier for customers to contact their business and visit their location.
