A Failsafe Strategy to Grow Organic Search Traffic by 436%

About the project

Camp Lee Mar is a leader in providing children of various needs with well-structured summer programs to focus on their overall growth and development. Their programs can vary from six months to one week and overnight. While they offer services to all children, their primary focus is kids with special needs. They are known for ultimate security at the campus and well-trained counselors to assist children in their daily needs. 

Given their excellent amenities, Camp Lee Mar has acclaimed a reputation as the best vacation camp provider for children in the United States. In the year 2020, they experienced a less number of children attending summer or vacation camps. One of the reasons for this sudden decrease was the pandemic. Understandably, we all have been there.

Since Camp Lee Mar offers summer and holiday programs for all children, their prime concern was to attract more kids to enroll in their summer program. In addition to this, they were looking to improve blog searches. They wanted to target leads from all across the United States. The priorities of Camp Lee Mar regarding growth metrics are given below: 

  • More website traffic paid, organic, and referral 
  • Better conversion rate and enrollment 
  • Improved content optimization

  • How did we create a result-driven digital marketing strategy?

At SoftProdigy, we house a team of experts with years of experience, expertise, and in-depth knowledge in digital marketing.
