The SEO strategy drove a year-over-year increase of 184% in natural search traffic. In addition, the team established a thriving sales channel on Amazon, starting from scratch, with an efficient average advertising cost of sale of 16%. Importantly, there was a 350% reduction in overall CPA costs, while still increasing overall conversions. This transformation positioned Backyard Discovery as a strong player in the D2C market, drastically impacting their revenue growth and brand presence.
