The Challenge

National Business Capital is a leading alternative financing company with clients across the United States. They wanted AWG to assist them to grow their online business by attracting small business owners seeking financing options.

Execution

  • The strategy for National Business Capital to increase quality website traffic included a united approach across several digital marketing disciplines. AWG utilized Web Design and Development, SEO, PPC and Email Marketing strategies to achieve business solutions for this client.
    • Web Design and Development: NBC knew its dated website would not facilitate conversions. To assist the client to remain competitive, AWG redesigned and built a new site that provided greater ease of use through improved navigation, content of interest to readers, infographics, shorter forms, and stronger calls to action.
    • PPC: As an alternative lender, a highly competitive financial sector, it was determined that multiple ad and remarketing campaigns that focused specifically on keywords would help to achieve the client’s objectives. Additionally, the ads highlighted NBC’s superior customer service, to differentiate the firm in this niche industry.
    • Search Engine Optimization (SEO): AWG’s team drafted optimized site content, including landing pages and blogs, and a custom link building initiative, to reach decision makers at businesses who had been unable to receive traditional bank financing. The blogs, in particular, were aimed to project NBC as a thought leader by providing financial information to readers, to drive site traffic from untapped sources.
