The Challenge

Organic Presence In The U.S.

Along with improving brand awareness, Xero was looking to rank in the U.S. search engines for broad, high-volume search terms. They hoped to increase organic presence in U.S. markets while also generating an overall organic lift that would boost the brand at home and worldwide.

The Solution

SEO & Content Marketing Synergies

To accomplish this, Wpromote created an internationally focused digital marketing campaign with both on- and off-site SEO efforts. Wpromote started by making numerous on-site technical optimizations​, specifically tailored to the needs of Xero’s international site. These improvements would allow search engines better access for crawling while ensuring the site displayed consistently and well across different regions.

Wpromote and Xero then developed engaging and relevant content to improve the brand’s content profile while also leveraging creative off-site initiatives. These two efforts combined helped build brand awareness across the world, but especially in the U.S., and increased the site’s authority with the search engines.
